It's not even Halloween and it's going to be over 100 degrees tomorrow and still Neiman-Marcus wants me to get in the Christmas Spirit. Of course, their Christmas spirit includes a $530 Gucci leather handbag for tots
and a faux fur chair for sitting on the sidelines at your kids' soccer games.
I was able to skip over the $2500 and $3500 handbags; my canvas sack from BlogHer'15 is my go-to purse these days.
I'm always on the lookout for soft and warm headgear for my girl, and the smiley face balloon is emblematic of her sunny disposition.
The Fendi page was beautiful,
Continuing the really??? theme, I'm not sure about the utility of a python and calfskin high top with dyed silver fox and nutria trim,
but my guess is that someone spending $3,200 on them is not going to be shooting hoops.
If fox fur upsets you, the burgundy one might intrigue you; it has a rooster feather.
The $750 Tom Ford trainers (I suppose at that price you need something fancier than sneakers)
are stunning and, were I an extravagant human I'd buy a pair for Brother,
who wears nothing but sneakers.
Unfortunately for him, I'm not.
I have to admire a store that includes books in its catalog.
It offsets the discomfort I feel when I look at a $500 dog collar,
or a $500 basket of thongs.
I did find a few things that made me smile, in a this might be possible way.
I like the $40 chrome ornament stand as a centerpiece for a holiday table
but that was all that fit my budget and my psyche.
I was looking for more, but I was stopped in my tracks by the His and Hers Fantasy Gifts. ultimate children's costumes in Mackenzie-Childs trunks cost $5000 each.... but that's not what irks me the most. I'm looking for Wonder Woman and Super Girl and Catwoman and Elektra... those princesses don't do anything but sit there and look pretty.
Then, again, that seems to be the theme of the entire book.
