One of my favorite places to spend a few days during December is New York City. This year’s trip to the Big Apple didn’t disappoint.
Decorations are always fabulous and creative. Store windows are the best. This year I was captivated with Barney’s “skater” in the window and their moving kaleidoscope type constructions. The moving windows of UNIQLO, the trendy Italian store on Fifth Avenue, stopped me for a bit. . They actually move up three floors…….see the bright squares of windows in the photos in the different placements. I noticed that lots of people walked right by without being aware of the moving windows.
This year we went to a Holiday Showhouse on the upper East Side. It was a sneak peak into the lives of the privileged elite and some ideas about decorating. Isn’t the dining room stunning?
I always pop into Saks Fifth Avenue, never tiring of the white branches with the tiny lights on the ceiling. Fun to do a little browsing. The former fashion writer and buyer in me couldn’t help but notice all the black on the markdown racks. Did they over buy or are New Yorkers tired of their fashion staples?
Most fun at Saks was a display of Rockettes costumes designed by famous designers. I really enjoyed seeing them and marveling at the creativity and pizzazz.
