Target + Neiman Marcus

This sounds fun!  According to WWD, 24 CDFA designers will be creating more than 50 limited edition gifts for a holiday collection that will be available at all Target and all Neiman Marcus stores (plus both websites), beginning December 1.   The collection will range from $7.99 to $499.99 and will include categories beyond men's, women's and children's wear such as sporting goods, pet acessories, and home decor.  Some of the designers (photo above) Alice + Olivia, Band of Outsiders, Lela Rose, Marchesa, Proenza Schouler, Rag & bone, Rodarte, and Tracy Reese.   I think its going to be an early morning if you want to get in line to actually buy any of this!

I hope everyone had a lovely 4th yesterday!  It was too hot to do much of anything here so I spent the day thinking of cool mid-summer wardrobe pick ups. These little white dresses from Gap look simple but pretty and easy to wear (plus, machine washable).   Perfect for hot summer days and possibly cute with a jacket or a colorful scarf for a casual evening.   Going to the store to check them out today!
