It was super weird when Taylor Swift’s invitation to her annual Fourth of July party at her house in Rhode Island got lost in the mail on its way to you, and that her e-mail follow-up just happened to land in your spam folder. You were so careful!

Regardless, due to a string of totally unforeseeable mix-ups, you did not attend the party. Luckily, however, there is a way to swoop in next year so that when Gigi Hadid asks you whether she’d met you before, you can say "Totally — wait, how could you not remember? You told me we were going to be best friends?"

Because much like most events in Taylor Swift’s life, there was an explicit, required wardrobe for the entire weekend, the aesthetic of which can best be described as "literally exactly what you think a Taylor Swift Fourth of July party would look like."

While this Forever 21 bikini is sold out:
