Neiman Marcus Gift Swap

A couple months ago Living Social had a credit for Neiman Marcus Last Call. Of course I told my friend Yalanda at We Laugh Anyway all about it and she had a brilliant idea.






Dress-Zara (similar, similar) | Jacket-Neiman Marcus Last Call (similar, similar) | Heels-BCBG (similar, similar) | Clutch-NY&Co | Necklace-gift (similar)  | Bracelets-JCrew Factory, gift
Yalanda thought it would be fun to use our giftcards to buy things for each other. So we exchanged sizes and the only restrictions we put on the swap was a max of $5 over the giftcard. Now that we have the items and exchanged them we are showing how we styled them!

She got me this adorable olive moto jacket. I have a similar one in black, but it is in sweatshirt material and a little too bulky to wear as anything other than a jacket. This one is more fitted and has lots of cute zipper detail! This time I wore it as an extra layer over a dress, but I can easily wear this with jeans or a skirt. I am excited to wear this more as the weather cools down this fall.

I took forever to decide what to get for Yalanda and looked through a ton of options, but kept coming back to this striped top with pretty coral and jeweled detail at the neckline. It is also available in a gray stripe with yellow detail. I loved the fabric and dressier look of the striped tee. Check out how she styled it here!

    I would love to have an olive jacket like yours. The one you linked after has a green color that not quite as fresh as yours.

  24. I could not believe it, I went through the purchasing process online and submitted my order, a message popped up telling me it is not in stock anymore.

  25. I switched the shipping method to "pick up from a store", it went through and order done. How strange....

    ReplyDelete
  26. That is strange! Glad you were able to get it though!
