Vogue's Camping Trip Costs More Than the Annual Salary of One of Their Assistants

Vogue recently published a feature on "glamping." (Yes, that's glamorous camping. Oxymoron, you say? Who cares? It's Vogue!). The story includes a recommended packing list and suggestions on where to stay on your next camping trip for "less cost (and carbon) than jetting off to St. Moritz." So how much exactly will this Vogue-approved camping trip (that the mag almost made sound like a budget travel option) set you back, you ask? According to She Finds, it'll cost you a whopping $31, 349 when you factor in a week's stay and all of the items suggested in Vogue’s packing list. (But that's just pennies when compared to a trip to St. Moritz, dahling!)

Some of the items you'll be bringing along on your "rugged" trip into "the great outdoors" include a $2,800 children’s camping tent and a $11,100 Hermes folding chair. So, you know, just the bare necessities.

This is especially ridiculous since the annual salary of a typical Vogue assistant starts at just $24,000. Ouch.

Maybe the Occupy Wall Street protestors should make their way over to 4 Times Square at some point...
