I have been waiting for this collaborations BIG REVEAL since I first got wind of it back in July. Honestly, I was quite skeptical to see what would come out of this as it is with 24 designer representatives from the CFDA, and it did take me some time to really go through the list and feel out what I like, but these products DO NOT disappoint! I have to admit, I bought into the Missoni experience and made it a point to be at my local Target at 7:45 to be one of the first few to take a peak at the buzzed about collection. It was crazy watching the ladies pile up their carts with notepads, serving platters, sweaters – lots and lots of zig-zag was flying through the store that morning! But the quality stood up to expectations and everything was done very well – I hope the case is the same with this Neiman’s/CFDA Collab for Holiday 2012!
Here are my TOP FIVE picks from the the collection – it was verrrry hard to narrow it down to five, but you can find all my faves on my Pinterst Account!
This dress can be dressed up with chandelier earrings, a beautiful clutch and a faux fur stool OR you could wear it for a Girl’s Night Out with a leather jacket, chunky necklace and peep-toe booties. Either way this is a great piece for all your Holiday gatherings!
This is a great accent for a bar/bar cart or you could showcase the tray by placing it on a coffee table with candles or on an ottoman with coffee table pics and a small accent piece. Fill the glasses with a tasty Cider Rum Punch (Verses from the Kitchen) and enjoy with friends and family!
There is no other way to wear this then sharing the mate with a close friend or loved one. It doesn’t matter if you’re the Best or the Friend – this hat is meant to be shared with someone special!
Loving the two-tone and spikes of this trinket box. You could utilize this anywhere in your home to tuck away hidden treasures and enjoy the textural design. This would look great on a dressing table or vanity for loose rings or lip glosses. It also is the perfect accent for a coffee table or hallway table – just to add a little “fierceness” to the vibe.
And finally, this Tracy Reese sequined blouse is a great piece to have in one’s wardrobe. It can be worn to work with a pencil skirt, stud earrings and intense arm candy or you could go a bit trendier and wear it with a pleated leather skirt and blazer – pile on the accessories as you see fit! Feel free to play up the sequins by mixing other patterns into the mix – this is a big trend for the fall!
Neiman Marcus has put together a great page on their website describing the designers, their pieces and some even have videos describing their inspiration and excitement for the collection!
The countdown to December 1st begins…44 days <3
