The odd couple.

Years ago when I worked as an attorney and lived in Houston, I shopped at Neiman Marcus so regularly that I not only had a personal shopper, but had acquired so many "points" that I was frequently invited to private shopping events at which I was served champagne and yummy bits and bites. 

It sounds positively absurd to me now. I currently live a hours from a Neiman Marcus and I have no points. None. Nada. Not a single measly point. If I want to shop and drink champagne I have to pay for the bottle, pour it myself, and sit down at my computer {not a bad idea, come to think of it}.  

Oh, the twists and turns of life! 

I now spend an equal amount of time {and quite possibly nearly as much money} at Target. So  imagine my delight when my favorite past and present retailers announced a collaboration?!  Just in time for the holidays, Neiman Marcus and Target recruited 24 designers to create limited-edition gift items. 

Some of the designers will step out of the product category comfort zone and others are staying with what they know best. Most items will be priced under $60 with prices ranging from $7.99 to $499.99. Neiman Marcus stayed very close to the design process which resulted in products made with real leather and silk, hand beading, hand-blown glass and 18K gold! 

The collection drops into Neiman Marcus stores, Target stores, and on December 1st.

I'll pop the top on the champagne! Bring your laptop and let's enjoy our very own private shopping experience on December 1st! No points required.
