Show of hands - who's relieved I'm not discussing my defective ladybits today? Me too!
Speaking of good things, it seems fitting that the Target + Neiman Marcus collection is coming in December because, like with Santa Claus, I want to believe.
When I heard Tory Burch and Lela Rose and Diane von Furstenburg, oh my, mentioned in connection with this, visions of Christmas wish lists began dancing in head - for me *and* for my loved ones, that is. I'm not entirely selfish. OK, maybe mostly, but . . .
Anywhoo, Target & Neiman Marcus released a first look at the collection. In typical Target special collection fashion, some of it looks promising, while some it just looks . . . well . . . like the designer slapped his or her name on a cheap item and called it "designer" (*cough* Marc Jacobs*cough*).
Here's what looks best from the previews, though as always with these collections, I'll hold off on a review until I see them in person. I wouldn't call these prices the usual Target budget level; there's definitely a mark-up, and I'll be curious to see if the quality merits that:
1) Lela Rose top, $69.99
2) Lela Rose dress, $99.99 (or "$100.00" in normal person pricing)
3) Tory Burch beverage container, $24.99, and lunch box, $19.99.
4) Thom Browne blazer, $129.99
5) Jason Wu girls printed dress, $59.99
Because I am insane, I plan to be there when stores open on December 1st; if any of you care to join me, I'll bring the coffee if you'll bring the credit card. Who's in?
