Plain Jane: “It would be mortifying to the feelings of many ladies, could they be made to understand how little the heart of man is affected by what is costly or new in their attire…Woman is fine for her own satisfaction.”

Jane Austen in Northanger Abbey 

And might I add, for the satisfaction of other women…keeping up with (Mrs.) Jones is sometimes a pursuit not worth running after. Something to remember.
