Sneak Peek: Target And Neiman Marcus’s Designer Holiday Collaboration

Target and Neiman Marcus are at absolute opposite ends of the retail spectrum, which is all the more reason for them to want to come together, right? Whatever the logic behind their decision to collaborate, we have no complaints, even less so now that we’ve gotten to see each of the 55 items from the holiday collection. With prices starting at $7.99, you’d be hard-pressed not to find something that you or someone you know needs this coming season (especially considering, hello, holiday shopping is about to become a legitimate concern). The collection doesn’t hit stores (at Target, Neiman Marcus, and both online sources) until December 1, but the items are sure to sell out fast, so it’s best to go into it knowing exactly what you want. Check out my 12 designer picks from the offerings, and let us know what you’ll be waiting in (or on) line for come December! [Glamour]

Way back in the day, my grandma had a crocheted afghan in her living room that looked exactly like these pants. I used to wrap myself up in it on her cozy couch to watch Nickelodeon while she plied me for family gossip with treats from the candy drawer. I had no idea that one day someone would take that blanket, sew it in the vague shape of pants, and sell it for 300 bucks at Neiman Marcus. [$297, Neiman Marcus]

The 7 Most Insane Items In The Neiman Marcus Christmas Book

Is it that time of year again already? It feels like just yesterday we were compiling our holiday wishlists from the greatest of all gift catalogs, the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. This year’s edition is out and it’s chock full of gifts that will have you arranging your grandma’s death to get your inheritance early. (Seriously, don’t do that.) The thing about the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book is that I … don’t want anything on it. Seriously. Love you, Grandma! Nevertheless, here are the most outrageous — and outrageously priced — gifts on the list this year that you might like. [Fashionista]

Last Call By Neiman Marcus + Designer Goodies = Discounts

Neiman Marcus has entered the off-price retail game with the launch of Last Call Studio, a new retail concept store, and LastCall.com. Both entities feature designer fashions and shoes at a large discount from the suggested retail price. But don’t be mistaken, the Last Call items aren’t last year’s cast-offs. The fashions are actually on-trend and in-season and have been selected specifically for Last Call. I had the opportunity to shop at the new Last Call Studio in Paramus, NJ, and was shocked at the huge selection and amazing deals. I scored a pair of Charles Jourdan shoes for almost $88 less than the original price! There were also clothes and shoes from Diane Von Furstenberg, 7 For All Mankind, Rachel Roy, and Sam Edelman. But if you’re like me and don’t live near one of the Last Call Studio stores in Paramus, Dallas, or Rockville, MD, don’t feel slighted because the Last Call website has nearly identical merchandise to the stores. Will you shop at LastCall.com or Last Call Studio? [LastCall.com] Keep reading »

This Is What A Neiman Marcus Plus-Sized Model Looks Like?

I am not plus sized, but my mother is and can cry you a river over the the horrors of the industry, the lack of attractive clothing, and the messed-up sizing. When we were browsing the Neiman Marcus website for her yesterday, I noticed something a bit off—where were all the plus-sized models? For starters, it took me a second to realize that Neiman Marcus doesn’t employ the term “plus size” but rather you can find larger items in the “special sizes” section under “women’s.” Garments like this embroidered v-neck dress by Johnny Was are shown on a girl who might not be the skinniest model we’ve ever seen, but is, for all intents and purposes, what we’d call a “normal model.” There’s no way that woman is a 1X, 2X, or 3X, which are the only sizes the dress is available in. There are a few models in the women’s section who look like they might barely be a 6, but again, that’s not even close to the plus-size range (which generally starts at about a 16). I asked my mother if she saw this a lot—clothing supposedly for larger people shown on thin models? “Yes, I’ve seen it at several retailers,” she admitted. Still, we checked out the merch on the Neiman Marcus site for a while. Keep reading »
