Sequins!

I have to admit that I'm not much of a skirt person. Part of me would, however, secretly like to have a sequined skirt.

left :: center :: right

I think the middle skirt would be the nicest for me.  The one on the left would be too short for me to be comfortable and has two "flattering" front pleats {didn't everyone decide years ago front pleats aren't flattering?!?} and the one on the right is a bit too long though I like the color.

Does anyone have a sequin skirt?  Do they bend if you sit wrong?

Harry Winston Holiday Building

It's not exactly a window display, but Harry Winston dressed the whole building up for the holidays this year.  It was one of my favorite sights this season.

Kate Spade & C Wonder Window Display

I have only one image each of the Kate Spade and C. Wonder windows.  I thought I'd group them together since, at least in my mind, they are basically the same shops.

I'm posting this Kate Spade window display for the giant diamonds alone I also kind of like the giant jewelry boxes the mannequin is sitting on. I actually think the display is a bit too cluttered to read well though.  {If you have read any of my previous window displays you know I love the simple ones best.}


The vibrant colors of this C. Wonder store caught my eye as I passed, and the giant zebra made me smile.  There is a small pile of merchandise on the window sill below but there is enough white space around it that it isn't as distracting as in the photo above.


Is anyone else in love with the store front below?

Bergdorf Goodman's Holiday Window

I'm going to let these windows, from Bergdorf Goodman, mostly stand for themselves rather than babble on about them. I will say that I love all the detail and work that has obviously gone into putting these window together.

There were five windows, showing five different acts, in the windows along 5th Ave.  These were my favorite and the most detailed.

Act 2 :: Naughty and Nice

Act 1 :: By Request

Act III :: A Cast of Thousands

Act V :: Showgirls

Act IV :: Daredevil


Along 58th Street were simpler windows showing snapshots of performances.


I wish I had a closeup of this seal below.  It was actually made out of tiny 1"x1" {probably} mosaic tiles.



The windows on 57th Street show the theatre, but focus on the drama that happens in the seats and backstage, rather than on stage.






If you care to read more about the windows, you can take a look at the store's blog.  They actually have the wrong tags on their photos or the wrong descriptions for the acts so I did my best to get them labeled as correctly as I could.

Barney's New York Holiday Window Display

Two of the most unlikely companies were paired together for the Barneys Window display.  Disney turned famous people from the fashion industry into cartoons. In some ways it was a terrible idea because, with the crowds, I stuck around for about 30 seconds and never really saw much before I got tired of being jostled and stepped on.  I did get a short video though since timing both the video playing, and a gap in the crowd, to get some good photos would have taken a small miracle.

On the otherhand, evey time I think of one of the people saying, "Aye, aye, aye!  We look like cartoons!" I can't  help but laugh.  {Does anyone else remember Kidd Video?}


Between the cartoon videos, there was this.  There seemed to be a lot of this.

J Crew Holiday Window Display

Sorry about the long absence, my laptop is temporarily broken so I took a bit of a break since it's hard to type on an ipod.  I finally got a tablet to use in the meantime but it's really only good for simple tasks.  I went down to take photos of the window displays in Manhattan this past weekend {and went through a lot to actually get photos of the windows through the crowds} so I will work hard to try to get them posted by Christmas.

I like this very simple holiday background by J. Crew {I actually think there is a similar display I took at a Boston location but I can't confirm until my computer has been repaired}.  It looks to be made entirely of gift tags but if you look closely, the wreaths are made mostly of construction paper with some colored gift tags added.




Also, for those wondering, I used the HDR action on the Photoshop app, so the colors are not actually this bright in real life.  I just use that to cover up my bad photography.

Fama Living

A long, long time ago I promised to start putting up my ICFF photos that I had neglected to post.  As an end of the year cleanup, I am starting again.

Fama Living is a new to me company from Spain that sells upholstered furniture.


I really like the similar style sofa in the cheerful fabrics below.

It's not for everyone but I like the idea of low seating in a room.  How about you?
