Target + Neiman Marcus Holiday 24: Playing Dress up

Phew that was fun!

This time the collection was held in THREE different stores, Neimans, Last Call and Target. I of course went to my local Target. Um 7:30ish and 5th in line thank you very much!

I was surprised how calm everyone was, no rushes or running or pushing. There was plenty of everything to go around.

The biggest disappointment was the Oscar de la Renta handbag. It was sad. It makes me sad how something of Oscars could look so un-chic. For awhile there I had the purse in my hands..but part of me just wanted it for name brand sake.  Fashionchicsta was there to slap some sense in me, and give me the real. I'm glad I didn't get it.

And on that note, even the Prabal Gurung clutch was sad looking. You could feel the cardboard it was made with inside. The Judith Leiber mirrors were fun sized, the Band of Outsiders beanies were WAY too big. The best accessories might have been the Alice and Olivia luggage (which I snapped a few shots of, it came with extra bags for your sunglasses, laundry, etc!) the Jason Wu ornaments were gorgeous in person and I loved the Proenza Schouler Ipad case.

Blah blah blah, on to the fun stuff! The dressing room!

This is gorgeous and I actually didn't mind the blue back.

Ok, here's some extra shots I got of the store and merch.

Bad shot but super beautiful in person .

And the interiors!
Bags for laundry, shoes, sunglasses and an "other"  bag!

 I wish they sold those interior bags on the side! I'm a big fan of fashion illustrations.

So I came home with two purchases. :) What did you guys get? I'm dying to know!

*Please excuse the messy hair & blurry pics!
 Hah, it's too early for all this.


  1. Can you share what sizes the items you tired on are?

    1. Yes! I should have added that in there!
      XS in Lela Rose, Tracy Reese, Skaist Taylor
      S in THOM BROWNE, Proenza Schouler
      2 in Robert Rodriguez
      Prabal Gurung Cape was OS I believe.
      Hope that helps you shop Jen!

  2. Sooo much fun! I love my blazer! I purchased a Medium and it fir true to size.
    I can't wait to wear it to work on Monday!

    1. The blazer was fab! You are going to be best dressed at work tomorrow!

  3. i bought the Proenza Schouler Sweatshirt and the Tory Burch Lunchbox...figured it could double as a purse and makeup case. read my reviews on my blog

    1. I love the PS sweatshirt, I can't stop wearing it Lydia! The Tory Burch items seemed functional and at a good price. I may go back and buy the thermos.

    2. i didn't keep up with the collection like i normally do for each i didn't pay attention to what the lunch box was made of(tin or fabric). to my suprise it was fabric and a good suprise. the print is really nice and i thought well i could use it as a makeup bag for trips or my huge purses(aka my son's diaper bag...or a purse for simple days.

    3. Good idea Lydia! I like how creative everyone gets with these items, you could use them in so many different ways.
