5th Avenue Freezout

hi all! i’m in nyc and for all my big talk of running around, the furthest i’ve been is up to bergdorf’s and back. sadly most of my photos didn’t do the windows justice. they as were fab as expected, but the glare of the sun kept me from getting good shots. here are a few of mine (the detail shots) and good ones from lisa golightly’s blog featuring shots by Rudy Pospisil of anothernormal.com (who’s apparently been shooting holiday windows all around the city). i’ll let him brave the cold this year… it’s brutal out there!

these were the ‘windows of curiostiy’

she was super small, you can see her in the first floor room on the left

there was a ton of detail.

juicy couture’s windows

lord and taylor’s windows

and if you’re a window lover too, you may want to put this on your wish list:


windows are such magical little boxes. it’s amazing how much life and drama can fit into them! these are just the tip of the iceberg as far as the bergdorf windows. if you’re obsessed like i am, check out anothernormal.com ‘s incredible shots.

to all the window display artists, thank you for another year of bewitching us!
