Does the thought of purchasing an item made by Rodarte, Derek Lam, Altuzarra, or Proenza Schouler give you anxiety and/or nightmares of eternal bankruptcy? Me too. However, that is all about to change this holiday season.
Amidst the hype that has been circulating ever since the announcement of this collaboration in July, Target finally presented a first look at the holiday collection coming to stores this December, in which they partnered with highly-recognized luxury retailer, Neiman Marcus.
The holiday collection is said to contain 50 limited edition gifts, ranging from adult and kids apparel, to home, to luggage, to sporting goods, and even something for your pooch, thanks to Oscar de la Renta.
Items start at $7.99 and are rounded out by an amazing FLORAL PRINT bike by Alice + Olivia at $499. I wish I could have a floral bike. Designed by Alice + Olivia. For $500.
Other notable designers include Diane von Furstenberg, whom designed a black and white tree-limb print yoga mat and jewelry box, Jason Wu and Marchesa both designed a set of two adorable holiday dresses for little girls, a very trendy and attention-grabbing lunch box and thermos from Tory Burch, Carolina Herrera stationary, and sexy studded leather gloves by Brian Atwood that I just might have to add to my Christmas list (or gift to myself).
In keeping with the traditional spirit of giving that comes with the holiday season, when all is said and done, the companies have agreed to donate $1 million to the non-profit Council of Fashion Designers of America.
Look for this highly-anticpated collection in online and in Target and Neiman Marcus stores on December 1st. However, allow me to stress what I said earlier about this collection being a “limited edition.” The buzz and excitement about this collaboration has not stopped since the announcement of it in July, so I assure you that these items will fly off the shelves. If you see something in this collection that you simply don’t think you will be able to continue your life without, I suggest you get your you-know-what out of bed on December 1st and go sit outside of Target with all the other crazies and wait for it to open. Don’t worry, I’ll be right there next to you.
For your viewing pleasure, here is the FULL lookbook of this collection here. Also, be sure to check out some of my faves from the collection below because…..this is my first Photoshop collage that I figured out how to make all by myself!!!! It took me awhile, but it is actually fairly enjoyable once you get the hang of it. I can’t wait to learn more about it and get even better at creating fun and pretty things to post on here.
One last announcement….I finally invested in a real blog design, so hopefully within the next week or two I will start looking more official! I’m excited :) no more Misses Amateur Blog.
I hope you all enjoy your day! As always, feel free to leave comments. :)
