You know what I consider fun during the holiday season? Checking out the most expensive item in the annual Neiman Marcus Christmas Catalog (which is now actually referred to as “The Book”). One year, the big-ticket item was a million-dollar, diamond-encrusted bra from Victoria’s Secret. I do not know if they sold any…but I would hope, at the very least, it came with a coupon code for free shipping.

This year, however, Neiman’s is partnering up with Target to introduce a shared holiday collection that will be available at both stores. To my mind, this lends an extra cachet to the goods, since we know damn well the Missoni-for-Target pieces never saw the inside of a real Missoni boutique. The Neiman’s collection hits stores starting December 1 (yes, this Saturday), and will feature more than 50 limited-edition items from 24 designers.

Correction: You’re supposed to be able to buy the items online starting December 1st at 12:01 a.m. But I’m quite certain the throngs of web shoppers will cause the site to crash…and you will be on your computer until three in the morning.

Might be worth it.
