10 Times We Wanted To BE Taylor Swift

Warning: this post may contain slightly stalker-like tendencies.

Ladies: Raise your hands if you’ve ever seen Taylor Swift and thought ‘darn: it would be good to live her life’.

Guilty as charged.

Talent, beauty and abundance of celeb gal pals, T-Swift seems to have it all. Add to that a stack of Grammy’s and VMA’s, an overflowing designer wardrobe and a sweet and humble personality, and you’re left wondering if there’s anything this former country music star can’t do.

Today we are counting down the top 10 times we wanted to be Taylor Swift. I’ll give you a hundred dollar bill if you don’t feel one smidgen of envy…

10. THIS Street Style Look

And every other one for that matter. Taylor looks oh-so-effortless in a plaid Topshop poncho and green scarf. She tops it off perfectly with coral lips and teal skinny jeans.

Get The Look

A teal scarf is the way to go!

9. The ‘Bad Blood’ Music Video

Imagine if you had the chance to produce your own music video? What do you do? Create a short action movie starring all of your besties of course! Taylor’s ‘Bad Blood’ video contained more celebrities than a Beverly Hills Chanel store. Featuring songstresses’ Ellie Goulding, Zendaya and Selena Gomez, as well as a plethora of Victoria’s Secret pals, if we could zap ourselves into this music video, we totally would!

8. THIS Is Her Penthouse


Ah… you know, just a $20 million dollar penthouse…no biggie! With an understated retro edge and a classic and cosy design, we wouldn’t mind living in this palace! Hey Tay, Can we come stay?

A Swift Home Makeover

Haha! I love a good pun! Taylor’s home has a stunning, seventies palette in deep burnt reds, oranges and greys. Firstly, give your tables a retro, boho edge with the hand painted deluxe floral table runner.

Rustic Orange:

Mix together retro florals, deep mahogany and burnt orange tones with this cushion conglomeration:

7. Girls!

Yep… you guessed it! More famous girl friends.

If just simply being Taylor Swift wasn’t enough for you, you get to hang out with Lena Dunham, aka the most hilarious lady in Hollywood! Can you just imagine how good the chat would be?

6. Victoria’s Secret

She has the voice, the looks and the body! Tay didn’t look one bit out of place performing at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2014. As a matter of fact, we would have bet money she could have been the next angel…

5. The 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Red carpet dresses have become so meh. Enter Taylor in this cut-out, Balmain jumpsuit. **Wolf whistles**  It just shows that it pays to be different…. **Sighs** If only we had her wardrobe!

4. Cats

The awkward moment when Taylor Swift’s cat is cooler than you. Kitty Olivia Benson has been on a private jet and is often snapped surrounded by designer shoes. We would totally hate her if she wasn’t so cute! #Jealousofacat

Taylor’s Cushion Inspo

Make your next trip a bit more swifty (sorry, I’ve done it again) by copying her cute tropical and floral print cushions.

3. #RelationshipGoals

A normal day for Taylor and her beau (DJ Calvin Harris) is chilling on inflatable swans in an infinity pool. Ours is doing the washing up and whining at our other half about his stinky socks. Jealous much?

2. Vacay For Tay

How do you celebrate your birthday? Well, if you’re Taylor Swift you book out an entire island. Yep; you heard me! During the Australian leg of her world tour, Taylor treated her entire posse to an all inclusive holiday at Hamilton Island on The Great Barrier Reef. Even better? She banned all media.

1. The 2016 Grammys

If you’re looking for evidence that 2015 was the year of the Swift, look no further than the 2016 Grammys.

Exhibit A (above): Taylor looks smokin’ hot on the red carpet last week in this Versace two piece. And check out the new Anna Wintour style bob: we approve!

Exhibit B: She won not one, not two, but three Grammy’s! Way to kick ass Tay Tay! Her latest album ‘1989’ took out both ‘best pop vocal album’ and ‘album of the year’, whilst the star-studded video for ‘Bad Blood’ took the prize for ‘best music video.’ Well, I guess that happens when you let all your friends star in your video, who just happen to be Victoria’s Secret Angels…

Exhibit C: That acceptance speech.

After Kanye West’s new song ‘Famous’ contained insulting lyrics, ‘I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b- famous’, something was bound to go down.

Cue Taylor and this girl-power filled response:

“As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there, there will be people along the way who will try to undercut your success,” she said. “Or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame.”

You go girl! That’s gotta burn Kanye!


If the price of her Versace two piece is more than that of your mortgage, try tying our solid color scarf around your bust to recreate her crop top. There’s a zesty orange shade and a punchy magenta to choose from. Taylor would approve…

Ah… don’t you just wish you were Taylor?!
