Christmas Memories… Dec. 1993

25 Dec
Me… 1993! =)

One of my favorite things to do while I’m spending time back home is going through old pictures. No matter how many time I have seen them I still get excited going through and reliving all of the wonderful memories. This picture above was from Christmas 1993. I swear I could still pull that outfit together to this day from items I currently own in my closet. How does the saying going… “Fashion fades, style is eternal” -Coco Chanel. Well in this case… take a picture and the fashion lives on forever. I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas. I would like all of you to know how grateful I am to have you as readers. This little blog of mine has brought me such joy in since the time I started it. With each new comment and each new follower I am filled with endless amounts of inspirations.

Thank you all for not only joining me for the ride… but inspiring me along the way. May 2010 be a blessed year for us all.

Merry Christmas!


p.s. Sorry for the poor quality of the pic… My scanner was not working so I took a picture of the photo with my iphone. Hopefully I will be able to upload a better quality image soon.

Bergdrof Goodman, Christmas Window Displays

25 Dec

Below are more images from my favorite window displays in NYC… Bergdrof Goodman. Christmas time in New York City really is a magically time. I only wish I could bottle it up and share it with all of you. So below is my small little attempt to give you a peak into my world.


Made from the pages of a book.

All made out of paper!

The books in this bookcase where made out of leather clutches.

Anthropologie, Rockefeller Center- Christams 09

25 Dec

As you all know I have a great deal of love and respect for the window displays at Anthropologie, and they never seem to disappoint come Christmas time. The pictures above and below were taken on my iphone (so I apologize in advance that the quality is not the greatest). Yesterday I flew out to California for Christmas (thanks to a certain special someone) so Monday of this week I decided it was time to snap out of my bah-humbug mood and get into the Christmas spirit. So after work I first wandered the outdoor shops at Bryant Park, then headed up town where my first stop was Bergdrof Goodman (pics to follow shortly. If you are ever in NYC for the holidays there windows really are a must. Then I walked to Rockefeller center (a favorite destination this time of year) to check out “the tree” and all of the festivities. After that I had to go by Anthro… but unfortunately it was already past 10pm and they were closed… but fear not I still got to enjoy the windows with is always one of my favorite parts.

Holiday puzzles and tea by the fire anyone?

Milk and Cookies Anthro Style!!! I decided I want too make these to put by my fireplace next year for Santa 😉
And how lovely they make a overflowing fridge look!

This was one of my favorites… Who wouldn’t want to own a super cute vintage pink and be surrounded by all that snow?! I know I sure would!

Happy Holiday’s Everyone!
