Winter on 5th Avenue

As I mentioned earlier, it's a tradition of mine to open the holiday season with a trip up 5th Avenue to see the Bergdorf Goodman windows.  I usually do this before Christmas when there are hordes of shoppers and I end up losing my temper with the crowds and running away screaming.  This year, I had the brilliant idea to trek up there after Christmas (duh!) when the streets were airier and more tolerable.

The show-stopper this year was this underwater mosaic scene (pictures don't do it justice):

I really loved this one:

And a detail from a display made entirely of black and white paper:

Meanwhile, at Saks...


I have no idea what Lady Gaga, bubbles and creepy little girls had to do with anything, but it was fun to look at.
