As I celebrate the holidays this year in the Colorado Rockies skiing with my family, I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year wherever you may be. I hope this is a time of healing and peace for our country and world to reflect on all the ways we can be better in the years to come.
The holidays are just around the corner, which means the pressure is on to pick the perfect gifts. Make it easy on yourself and head on over to CUSP by Neiman Marcus to view my three ‘must-have’ gifts for the season. Four of my favorite Chicago bloggers also hand-chose the best gifts on CUSP.com, proving that Windy City style-setters are making their mark on fashion now more than ever before.
Last week, Target unveiled its unprecedented collaboration with luxury retailer Neiman Marcus, Holiday24. Together they hand-selected 25 American designers, all of whom sell their collections to Neiman Marcus. The designers created 50 gifts for the holiday season. Ranging from Christmas ornaments to clothing (of course), these coveted pieces are sure to become treasures cherished for years to come.
Christmas is nearly two months away, but I’ve already put together my gift wishlist. For my friends and family who live in Arkansas – where the Target lines are guaranteed to be either super short or non-existent – I’m looking at YOU.
Although both Rodarte pieces are specifically made for the holidays, I think I’ll frame and display the wrapping paper like art and hang the galaxy-inspired ornament in my closet. I’m someone who went to Space Camp in 5th grade and took Astrophysics as an elective at Michigan State, so if you think I’ll be passing up on either of these, well…
Every girl needs a way to open letters in style, no? This Eddie Borgo letter opener is like jewelry for my desk.
The Proenza Schouler boys have the Midas touch and their latest collaboration with Target is no different. Living in Chicago means I can never have one too many sweatshirts, and I adore the paint-splattered look of this top. The iPad case brings a relaxed energy with its craft-like touch, balancing out its technological utility with a healthy dose of wit.
