So our Golden Girls window last week went a little viral over on our Instagram account. Don’t know the ins and outs of why or how but we had over 479 likes on it. That’s huge for us! I’m hoping this Santa red display has the same effect on people. But alas, I have a confession to make… As soon as the Dior on the left got wheeled into place it got snatched up by one of our regulars.  If you’re a Dior loving size 2-4, so sorry for the tease.

Was your 2016 about as smooth as sandpaper? Well cut loose and indulge the night away in either the knit on the left or the caftan style on the right. They will keep you looking elegant and give you room to blow off some steam in. Sparkle bright like the holiday lights this season and enjoy yourself kitten.

‘Tis the season to put up those holiday lights. After tackling the crowds and long line ups last weekend, I found 76 feet of cute warm white mini lights to decorate our windows with. I figured the battle was half won… How wrong I was! Little did I know that it would take many hours of configuring plugs & clips with enough curse words to make a sailor blush. But alas, it IS complete. So if you have yet to do yours, god speed! I do say though, they make this week’s window look extra glam. Or maybe it’s just the fact that our mannequins are all divas in their chic vintage evening coats. I’ll let you be the judge;

Ok, let’s cut straight to the chase! How terribly chic is that 1950’s trapeze coat on the right! It makes me swoon and let out random “ohhhhs” while looking at it. From the oversized pockets & sleeves to the HUGE abalone buttons; this is perfection in a coat. The label is long gone, but we have a feeling that this is from a New York designer. Very à la Balenciaga. Side note; MIA labels are the bane of my existence…. Oh well, c’est la vie.

Veering away from our usual frock filled windows, we are focusing this week on outerwear instead. In particular; the Burberry trench.  Ever wonder why they are called ‘trench’ coats? Well, it’s because Burberry (or Aquascutum-the jury is still out on this) developed the coat for use by the British and French soldiers fighting in the trenches during WWI. Now you know! Get ready to fight the elements this fall and dodge those drops in a classic piece that is tried and true.

We’ve been waiting a couple of weeks to do this window for you all. The reason being is that we didn’t have a 3rd item in the right blue to make it work until that Marilyn dress on the right came in. And then, voilà- display complete. Hope you like it as much as we do!
