Shopping Neiman's Last Call Sale

I got a post-card a couple weeks ago informing me that Neiman Marcus' sale would be marked down to Last Call which means up to 65% off sale items or one of the times of the year when Neiman items are marked with normal people prices. You can get anything theory tank tops for $18 to Reem Acra gowns to a couple thous (yea, still expensive). I decided to hit up the sale to see if I could find any new goodies.

Here's my dressing room:

This was the nicest dressing room I've ever been in. It was like a mini-hotel room, complete with doorless closets, a seating area, and a desk.

Here are a couple of the items I tried on:

I tried on nearly twenty things, so forgive me for not remembering all the items I tried on, but the one on the right is a Diane VonFurstenberg wrap dress.


I believe the one on the left is a Diane VonFurstenberg and on the right is a Kay Unger.

Can you guess which dress I bought? I ended up purchasing one of the four pictured above. For anyone else shopping the sale, I believe sale items will be for sale till the 18th. Happy shopping!

I like top right and bottom left best but I think ypouo will have bought top left, which is also lovely.

I'd wager a guess that you bought the first left one (that beautiful pattern print beside the black and white DvF)

But you look FAB in DvF dresses!!! Wow, you really get what you pay for I guess. How much did it end up being in the end? I ought to hit these sales...

Amethyst said...

If I had to take a wild guess, I think you bought the white dress with the black belt - seems the most versatile. For me personally, I like the boho sundress on the top the best, but they're all cute.

Good guesses everyone! I wanted to get all of them except the DVF floral one (just b/c it was a bit too tight), but I ended up only getting one of the four. It's only been half a day since I posted this, so I'll let a couple more people make some guesses with this new clue.

I love the one on the top left, but I think you got the Kay Unger..which also looks great on you.

Fashion Plus Jewelry said...

You look great! I went to the sale, and didn't find much in those sale racks. I did however buy the new long sleeve silk green DVF for $425.00, it came in brown as well, but I have too many brown dresses already. I wish they had this dress up on their site, but they don't yet. Nobody does.

shopdiary said...

the white kay unger dress! you look good in all of them but i think the white dress is more your style!

The black DVF? :)

Candid Cool said...

I'm guessing #3

Shopaholic D said...

The White Kay Unger and the black/white DVF are the most popular choices...I'll do a post tomorrow after work to say which one I got. Good guesses everyone! Thanks for all the comments!

Kerry said...

all of them? or maybe the pink flower one? All are great and look great on you!

Shopaholic D said...

Haha, Kerry, you know me too well! All of them? I wish...I've been working on shopping less, so I only got one of the dresses. Of course, I probably made up for the other dresses with the other items I got. lol

I think you got the B&W Furstenberg :)

Shoeblog said...

The black/white DVF? It looks fab on you.

does anyone know if you can return last call items. the SA lead me to believe the sale was final- now i have buyers remorse. cl

Shopaholic D said...

Anonymous - does it say anything on the back of your receipt? You may want to try calling the store. If they won't accept the return, I guess there's not much you can do but try to sell the item on ebay, etc. or donated the item and write a portion of the purchase amount on your taxes (ask your accountant about how-to write off donations and how much you can write it the item for).

Good luck!

Thanks! I went back there and said I want to return this jacket and had no problem getting it credited back to my charge card.
