Let’s be honest: Dating in New York these days lacks a certain dazzle. Saturday night dates—an American institution that once demanded fresh tablecloths, a new ensemble, and plenty of primping—are often relegated to banal drinks at the neighborhood watering hole or, the cruelest of jokes, the lackluster “Netflix and chill.” Where is the glitz? Where is the polish? Where is the promise of a twirl on a dance floor that a well-suited John Travolta as Tony Manero, the very king of ’70s glamour, once offered to a myriad of lucky ladies on-screen in Saturday Night Fever?
Before we mourn the end of modern courtship in this fashion capital, why not put our Gucci glittering horsebit platform foot down this weekend and demand our love lives start to shine a bit more? If bae still isn’t taking the bait, instead suggesting a quiet night in, let your Brian Atwood + Donald Robertson’s lips print–embellished heel and Prada sequined lips pochette do all the talking. And if push comes to shove and your listless paramour is still relegated to that couch, buckle yourself into Saint Laurent’s candy stacked heels, pour yourself into a disco-era frock, and let the trail of kaleidoscopic glitter from Shourouk’s Daktari embellished sequin bag catch your partner’s eyes as you exit to meet the girls. Chances are you’ll receive a text as you enter the Uber, asking if he or she can join.
