This weekend my sister came into town so that we could go to all the Brooklyn holiday craft fairs and then spend a day in Manhattan looking at Christmas Windows. So fun.
As usual Bergdorf Goodman was amazing. They always have the most beautiful, elaborate, and incredibly opulent windows in town. There theme this year was very much travel but not just plain old travel. Why not head to the moon, or a fantasy world while you are at it.
Seriously- would be the coolest job. You would be able to be so incredibly creative and work with such amazing stuff. One of my favorite features was the macrame? crochet? horse outfit in this image.
They also had amazing depth in general, the paper cutting was phenomenal, and they had a slew of sculptural animals made of paper that were so detailed.
These images just do not even begin to touch on the beauty of the windows so if you are lucky enough to be in the city it is worth the trip uptown, and Tiffany's wight next store had some lovely windows too.
Barneys was very disappointing, Macy's as always was fun, mechanical, and kid oriented, and the Anthropologie at Rockefeller Center rocked it as usual, plus had tons of stuff on sale. I hope you get to see some lovely windows yourself.
