Sometimes I waffle between scrapping the “one item per Daily Deal” thing and just shouting in large text, “THERE’S A HUGE FREAKING SALE AT NEIMAN MARCUS, Y’ALL,” dropping the hypertext mic and directing you to their website.
Today was almost that day… But then I found this sweater that was really, really cute – cuter than all the other things under $25 – and so I am allowing it to briefly steal the show.
Cropped things – you’re either sick of seeing them, or 100% sure you’ll never be sick of seeing them. A polarizing but intriguing piece of clothing, to be sure!
I can promise you that the #1 cause of hesitance regarding the wearing of crop tops is stomach visibility. We’re all taught that we should have a certain type of midsection. Those of us who do not have this type of midsection are all but instructed to hide our hideous bodies from the rest of society. We decidedly say Fuck You to that, but that insecurity doesn’t just vanish! It takes baby steps to recover from a lifetime of body standards brainwashing.
So consider this cropped sweater a holistic treatment to challenge the perception of your own body. If you wish you could love crop tops, but feel like you can’t because you “can’t wear them” – look at this damn sweater. It’s a cropped sweater, but has sheer chiffon all the way down to a typical shirt-length hem. You want a baby step? This sweater is a baby step, and it also happens to look extremely comfortable. Win-win.
And when you look like a juicy, tender babe burger in it? We call that a win-win-win.

Whoa whoa whoa, I almost forgot about the sale!!
Waking up this morning to find that Last Call Neiman Marcus spastically and radically reduced women’s apparel to 50% off for the day… makes my coffee taste better. I swear.
Let me be more clear: 50% off of clearance, up to 40% off of handbags and shoes, and, well… let’s just say everything is on sale, and I really mean that. I mean that until 8am tomorrow morning when the sale turns back into a pumpkin and everything is normal.
Other selection, aside from this adorable sweater, included this Catherine by Catherine Malandrino sweater for $24.50, this beautiful crochet tank which may or may not come with a tank underneath for $22.50, and the slough of Hanky Panky underwear that’s all marked 30% off.
If you shop anywhere today, do the smart thing and shop this sale! The value is through the roof.
