No matter what city or town you live in across the USA, retail stores step up their game when it comes to holiday window displays. The most famous and the largest of which are in NYC. From Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdales, to Henri Bendel these NYC department stores dream up amazing displays to dazzle holiday shoppers.
Bergdorf Goodman Holiday window display 2014
This article from last year highlights the spectacular creativity of David Hoey and his team at Bergdorf Goodman to reinvent the windows every year. From musical instruments to literature, Hoey and his team draw on inspiration to create "a little theater, a little storytelling, and a little installation art". They truly succeed!
The date of the window reveal for Bergdorf's hasn't been published yet but you can view some of their previous installations here on their website. The dates for the other major department stores in NYC are here:

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
