The only thing better than being invited to Taylor Swift‘s opulent Fourth of July party and mingling with her beautiful, fabulously wealthy and shiny-haired friends is reliving said party via Instagram pictures. 

Actually, that’s nowhere near as good, but it’s the best alternative we can offer you right now, so fuck it. Unless you plan on becoming a Victoria’s Secret model or a member of Haim in order to snag an invite to the next one of these, this will have to do.

These pictures are the closest you’ll come to riding an inflatable unicorn in Ms Swift’s pool, draping yourself in a patriotic towel by her beach house, or going on a Calvin Harris ride. Enjoy them, poor people:
