Neiman Marcus is one of the finest retail stores in the world. In existence for over a century, the store is usually found in large cities. Which is why I was surprised to hear that they just opened one on Long Island, where I live.
I visited it today. Full of designer goods, the store is the kind of place where you ogle clothes and products but walk out empty-handed because the prices are astronomical. I saw a nice men's jacket for $1,750, a pretty woman's dress for $1,750, and a cute cardi... wait for it... for $1,750. That's a popular price at this store.
Of course they do have more expensive goods. Believe it or not, they sell a men's jacket made of real crocodile that costs $120,000. House or jacket? Hmm... Here are some other items I saw.
This Sachin & Babi Noir’s jacquard dress
with a high-low hem, cut-in shoulders and jeweled neckline
is a mere $1,050
Would you pay $105 for a tube of lipstick?
How about if it contains soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter
and chamomile flower oil for ultra-creamy texture?
Made by Tom Ford
These cat-eye sunglasses have glittery butterflies
sculpted onto their frame by Anna-Karin Karlsson, $865
Your boyfriend having a birthday?
Get him these Maison Margiela duck feather sneakers
with multi-color dyed feathers for $2,180
And, finally, to prove I wasn't lying,
Stefano Ricci's crocodile jacket for $120,000
Have you ever heard of this store? They do a fabulous catalog each year for the holidays.
