NYFW is a week full of fashion, celebrities, and after-parties. And of course, everything is pretty much closed off to the public. As Mercedes Benz Fashion Week announced a few months ago, from now on, the shows will be more exclusive – which means your chances of getting invited by your internship “connections” are extremely slim.

Besides not being an A-lister, designer, or big-name editor, there are a lot of reasons you’re not invited to NYFW. But don’t feel bad that you’re not important enough, at least you can compare yourself to the hilarious girls from Bridesmaids.

 Reasons You’re Not Going to NYFW:

1. More than half of the things that are talked about in the fashion industry don’t make sense to you.

2. Besides, you care way too much about food and comfort to be bothered with high fashion.

Why look like a model when you can eat your body weight in pizza?

3. Dressing up would mean having to shave your legs. And that’s just not an option.

4. You don’t have anything trendy enough to wear — and your H&M wardrobe won’t cut it.

5. You can’t pronounce any of the designers’ names.

6. You don’t exactly act with the same level of grandeur as everyone else in attendance.

7. You’d probably want to touch every cool thing in sight.

8. You’d get more excited about the free samples than you would for the actual show.

Free Sweet’N Low martinis?! Thanks, I’ll take two.

9. It’d be too hard to control yourself if you saw someone famous.

10. You might feel inclined to drink just to calm your jitters.

11. You might get caught up in the fantasy that, at any moment, you might get discovered.

You probably won’t.

12. The dark room and loud music would make you want to pull a Taylor Swift and start dancing during the show.

13. It’s likely that you’d have a mental breakdown as soon as you saw all of the models.

14. You’d want to own every runway outfit, but wouldn’t be able to afford a single one.

Please, it doesn’t even look like it’s worth that much.

15. Let’s face it. You’ll probably never gain access to an exclusive show unless you pretend to be someone super important.

So cheers to not being invited! We like it better in yoga pants, anyway.
