Neiman Marcus is known for its expensive merchandise, hence the nickname "Needless Markup." But the stuff in the new "Just Kidding" catalog has to be seen to be believed: A $100 sequined jacket! A $200 dress! A $300 faux-fur coat! For children. $140 Burberry rain boots and a sleigh bed/duvet/pillow ensemble that costs more than your rent, after the jump.

Hahah, OMG, being rich is so fun! The one on the right? Her shirt says, "My dog for President." Drill, baby, drill. That jacket is $328. The jeans are $98. My jeans are 48 bucks but my mom didn't buy them for me.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Juicy Couture is neither juicy nor couture. This little pink dress is $128. The cat is not included.

I did not know that there was Juicy Couture for infants. I thought it was just for pre-teens and the soccer moms who dress like them. You learn something new every day.

I just got back from the thrift store. I'm trying desperately to find some cute shoes to go with my daughter's new dress to wear for her birthday party. I could not afford the $5 shoes.

Let me say it again, I could not afford the $5 shoes.

Looking at this makes me want to cry.

The one good thing is mostly, the kids are dressed like kids. They don't look like slutty little Bratz dolls and I appreciate that.
