An Epic Failure

You can read all of the details about why the Neiman Marcus - Target venture was epic failure in my previous post, but let me provide you with another shinning example. 

The shelves remain fully stocked of all merchandise that was a part of this collaborative collection AND it is ALL 50% off now! Even with this insane discount the shelves remain packed & some items still feel exceedingly overpriced! 


With that being said, I did purchase a few items because quite frankly I was shocked at the discount & I didn't mind parting with about $30 for these less than fabulous but still cute pieces. 
:: small silver pouch by Marc Jacobs - Originally $70 now $35 ::

:: leopard print slippers by Derek Lam - originally $50 now $25 ::

:: accent box by Eddie Borgo - was $50, now $25 ::

First of all this is a teeny tiny box! 
Secondly, I did not know how much these cost until I got home. When I went to check out there was not a price anywhere to be found & so the manager decided to give them to me for $10 each! When I came home I discovered how much they really cost & I about fell off of my chair! 

 Needless to say, I am happy with my new purchases. I believe both retailers made several monumental & obviously detrimental  mistakes with this collection but hopefully everyone involved will be able to learn & grow from this experience :) I am very curious to see what Target's next big launch will be?



  1. I agree with you. I have the little silver box too.

  2. Hi Marisa,

    Thanks for stopping by! Guess we will have to see what comes next?!?!

  3. Those are the pieces I want too! And the tray! Other than that I totally wasn't interested...especially not at their original prices. But am bummed that they chose a couple days before Christmas for the markdown...ya that all my money is spent on Christmas gifts for everyone else! Hopefully these will still be available the day after Christmas so I can put my order in!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, lovely!



I love and appreciate hearing from you!
