Professional trophy wife spends thousands of dollars a month

A self-proclaimed trophy wife who prioritizes having a glowy tan and well-manicured nails has claimed that spending $500 per month on her appearance makes her a better mom.

When Hope James Fifield, 28, got married to husband Carter, 27, she knew that she wanted her spouse to be the breadwinner while she sat pretty next to him, so she decided to give up her job as a preschool teacher to focus on looking her best.

To do this, the Kentucky-based mom spends a $150 per month on Pilates lessons, $40 on her gym membership and $300 on clothes.

Hope even applied nail extensions while giving birth to her daughter, Mariposa, nine months.

She admitted that becoming a mom wasn’t going to stop her from ‘being glam.’

Hope said: ‘I’ve always been vain and that wasn’t going to change when I became a mom.

‘I did consider having full makeup when in labor but I didn’t like the idea of mascara running down my face, so I settled on false nails that I applied while in hospital.’

She explained that even after giving birth and settling into being a new mom, she didn’t want to put herself on the ‘back burner.’

Hope added: ‘Even now, I always have my nails and fake tan done because I always like to feel put together. I’ll never put myself on the back burner.’

If the mom-of-one doesn’t have any plans to leave the home and is just lounging around in sweats, she will still ensure to accessorize and get glammed up.

She explained:  ‘Even if I’m wearing leggings and a sweatshirt, I’ll have my makeup and some jewelry on.

‘I like to look nice for myself, and my husband and set a good example for my daughter.

‘I hoped and dreamed for a daughter but she is an addition to my life, not my whole life.’

The glam mom met Carter in school and the pair later tied the knot in October 2020. After marriage, Hope gave up her pre-school teacher job to become a stay-at-home wife.

Before becoming a mom, Hope prided herself on being a ‘trophy wife’ and spent her time working out so that she could ‘always look put together.’

She admitted:  ‘Ever since I was little, I’ve wanted to be a trophy wife and I want to look like a bombshell. I love looking hot and being on Cater’s arm while he shows me off to his work colleagues.

‘I’m very traditional in that I appreciate the man being the breadwinner and that wives should look good for their husbands. I was adamant that this wouldn’t change when we started a family.’

In October 2022, Hope fell pregnant and the couple decided to celebrate by taking a babymoon to Nashville, where they had a pregnancy photo shoot so that Hope could look ‘glammed up and bronzed.’

After the couple welcomed their first child, Mariposa – who is named after a Barbie butterfly fairy – Carter brought Hope a $2,490 Chanel diaper bag as a push present and a $52 bottle of 818 tequila

And the best part about having one child for Hope is that she still gets to get her tan and nails done, while also going to her Pilates class

And while Hope had dreamt of being a trophy wife, she revealed that she would never make her daughter do the same

She said: ‘I told Carter exactly what I wanted as a push present and of course he delivered. It was my dream to have a little girl and I knew I wanted to call her a magical name.

‘She’s been a dream and is so well-behaved. Every mom is different but I chose to bring my baby into my life.’

And the best part about having one child for Hope is that she still gets to get her tan and nails done, while also going to her Pilates class.

She added: ‘I’m still able to do my weekly fake tan, get my nails done and I always have great hair. I work out at home while Mariposa is down for her nap.

‘Being Mariposa’s mom is amazing but I am one and done, I won’t have any more children. I’m looking forward to when she’s older and I’ll be able to teach her about clothes and makeup.’

And while Hope had dreamt of being a trophy wife, she revealed that she would never make her daughter do the same.

She said: ‘I’d never push her to be a trophy wife too when she’s older, I want her to be whatever she wants to be. I may be a trophy wife but I got the perfect husband.

‘We share the housework and Carter will do whatever I don’t have the time or energy to do. We’re best friends and he doesn’t care what I look like, only that I’m happy- and that’s when I’m tan and glam.’
