While on the hunt at Target for an ugly holiday sweater for an upcoming party, I stumbled upon the Target + Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection. I immediately searched through racks and shelves to see if the new partnership was worth all the buzz. The collection strives to make your holiday shopping that much easier by offering a wide variety of presents for seemingly everyone on your shopping list, including...
Alice + Olivia luggage ($179.99);
Altuzarra old fashioned glasses, serving trays and shakers ($49.99 - $79.99), Derek Lam skateboards ($99.99), and Tracy Reese dessert plates ($39.99);
Band of Outsiders cookie cutters ($29.99);
Diane von Furstenberg yoga mats ($49.99);
Jason Wu girl's dresses ($59.99);
and even an Alice + Olivia bike ($499.99).
and Lela Rose's watercolor print dress ($99.99).
My husband purchased the Lela Rose dress as an early Christmas present (lucky me!). I love the overall shape of the dress; the natural waist line is very flattering as is the skirt is full (thanks to a layer of tulle). I plan on swapping out the leather belt for something a little more feminine and pairing the dress with black tights and pumps.
For the record, Laura was a big fan of the Marc Jacobs zip pouches, which are steals at $69.99 each.
But what did I think of the collection overall? Frankly, the prices are a little high for the quality of the products -- in most cases good, but not great -- but reasonable compared to the prices tags found at Neiman Marcus.
