Vogue Would You Like You To Buy Your Way Into An Engagement With $8,000 Dresses
“…But really, you know what the most attractive quality in anyone is? The ability to have fun. Don’t fret about your future together—right now, at least, while you are drinking a saucy cocktail in an idyllic limbo, celebrating someone else’s happiness.”
But wait, I thought the goal was to lock it down ASAP, per the prior fretting on the bed when we could have been playing on the beach?
“This isn’t about you, remember. And it’s pretty rude to get engaged at someone else’s fete, and the idea of even mentioning a whisper of the idea to your significant other is at best eye roll–inducing, at worst, a full-blown panic attack. So what do you do after the reception? Go back to your hotel room, together, lie in bed, look at the fan, and think, ‘Well, isn’t this moment just fantastic? And really, don’t I look great?”“
So, according to this piece, to arrive at this final moment of pretending you never care in the first place after all those hours of really giving a fuck, all you need is to choose from these delightful engagement-worthy clothing items, among a few “cheaper” counterparts also offered up:
- A $8,363 Givenchy dress
- $795 Miu Miu suede platform wedge sandals
- A $7,000 Victorian reverse-painted rock crystal mother-of-pearl locket
- A $928 I.D. Saffieri Poudre et Diamants lace dress
- A $13,860 Mary Katrantzou Nathair slip (a slip!)
- Oh, and a $620 Rodarte barrete!
A cheaper option: talk to your partner about where you want your relationship to go. I know, right!?
