The Stuff of Dreams!!

Dreams indeed! The 2015 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book is out, and as usual, beyond belief! One of this year's MOST fabulous gifts is a trunk filled with accessories handcrafted from around the world! India, Uganda, and South Africa to name a few. Better still, the gift includes lunch, and a styling session with the one and only Iris Apfel! I've paid homage to her inimitable style many times, and can only hope to be as chic in my later years.

The price? a mere $80,000, and is limited to five customers. Scroll down for more details.

IRIS APFEL TRUNK "More is more, less is a bore!" is the style mantra of 94-year-old fashion icon Iris Apfel. Her souk-meets-haute-couture style earned her a 2005 Metropolitan Museum of Art retrospective. This ikat-embellished trunk comes filled with vintage finds and accessories handcrafted by women globally and inspired by her own personal collection. Gift includes lunch and a styling session with Iris.

 With the purchase of the Iris Apfel for Bajalia Trunk of Accessories, Neiman Marcus will donate $5,000 to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation.
