My Mom's Not Fancy

It's not that she doesn't know fancy things when she sees them, but because my mom doesn't splurge on fancy things she doesn't know how to talk about them (at least not without me correcting her).

MOM: She wears, what are those, Her Mees scarves.
ME: What? That's not how you say it. It's like this:

MOM: Whatever.

She was clearly pronouncing Hermès the way it's spelled. I get that, but it's still wrong. I'm trying to help her so she won't be insulted in one of their stores if she wins big at a casino and wants to splurge!
