Neiman Marcus Last Call

Growing up, when my mother wanted to have a fancy girls day with me, she would take me to Neiman Marcus. I used to love being able to see all of the gorgeous pieces and daydream about being able to have a closet filled with all of the silky things.

Now that I am an adult, Neiman Marcus Last Call is my favorite thing ever. Not only do I get to relive childhood memories, but I can snag designer fashion at discounted prices. It really is a win-win for me.

Think of this as outlet-store shopping in a department store setting. I love how many different options I can find when I go into the store. And I also appreciate the fact that I can shop from home when I am feeling particularly lazy.

And because we are trying to save some money, I have to point out that if you are an Ebates member, you can go through that site to save even more money when you shop the Neiman Marcus Last Call website. When you think about it, it’s like savings on top of savings, which you can never go wrong with.

You can find designers like Balmain, Salvatore Ferragamo, John Hardy, Prada, and Jimmy Choo here, and of course that’s not all. There are so many options available and designers that you can choose from that you can completely overhaul your entire closet in no time.

Speaking of Jimmy Choo, if you are looking to make a statement with sneakers, why not snag their Miami metallic leather sneakers for $238. While they were originally $595, at this reduced price, you can shimmer and shine as you make a statement with the perfect sneakers. And yes, the color was a definite draw, as rose gold is still an on-trend shade.

And while there are tons of stunning finds on the site (hundreds of pages actually), the Halston Heritage ruched halter mini dress with a flounce hem is definitely one that stands out, both in terms of fashion and price. The dress was originally $325, but you can grab it for $113. Considering spring and summer weddings are on the horizon, this could be a nice option.

I am such a fan of Neiman Marcus Last Call, that I can easily spend hours both in store and online. And I think you will be too, if you give them a chance.
