Take Me to Neiman Marcus.

"What goes better together than Neiman Marcus, brownies, and shopping? Nothing." - Me.

This article goes hand-in-hand with the one I published today on Smak (be sure to check it out!) Shameless self-promotion.....

I woke up this morning and it was cold. There are a few leafs on the ground. There was a crisp clean scent in the air. Holy mother of Pearl!!! Is it fall?! Hello most favorite time of the year. Here I am, 28-years old, 5 years out of college, almost 10 years out of high school, and I get nostalgic every year for back to school shopping. I want to buy new school supplies. New pencils. New notebooks. New calculators. And new clothes. Only problem? I don't go to school anymore... 

So my clear and obvious solution for this debacle includes a number of steps:

  1. Watch my favorite school related movies: Accepted, Easy A, Sydney White, The Social Network.
  2. Make Neiman Marcus brownies and eat my feelings
  3. Go onto the Neiman Marcus website and browse for hours
  4. Realize the price of the items I have bookmarked and continue eating my feelings
  5. Write two articles about the same thing and call them a joint-post!

No really though, I could sit on the computer for hours looking at clothes. Heck, I wouldn't mind doing that in person either, but when I am already eating my feelings it is better to keep myself secluded out of public view. 

Take a look at my Neiman Marcus wish list. I want all the things. Especially that incredible Pierre Balmain quilted-front long-sleeve sweatshirt! Be sure to go to Smak to read about the out-of-this-world Neiman Marcus brownies. Whip yourself up a batch and make your own Neiman Marcus wish list!
