What caught our eye were the surprising multitude of beautiful botanical decor items, like these Lotus Flower Chandeliers or these soothing linen Leaf Pillows and matching Leaf Place Mats. I'm not even very fond of roses, but this Seven-Piece Rose Serveware Set is a tabletop beauty, and which I could only imagine would take the hummus quartet I picked up from Trader Joe's to another level upon eating from it. Alas, I'll have to settle for a George Clooney designed mug and live vicariously through some of our more well heeled readers.
I believe the only time I've set foot inside a Neiman Marcus was by complete accident. Disoriented and spun around by a rambunctious bus load of european tourists, I found myself cattled through the gilded doors in Monsieur Hulot fashion while window shopping in Beverly Hills. It's not that I don't like Neiman Marcus...it's more that Neiman Marcus seems to have a bit of disdain for those like myself whose credit is several notches below platinum status (I've recently been upgraded from a Visa Tin™ card to Visa Aluminum™). But that doesn't mean I can't admire and note many of their fine wares from afar via their website.
