{ bergdorf holiday }

Bergdorf's holiday windows always win my vote for best dressed each year. 
 While last years Recollect might be my all-time favorite, 
this years window series of the Elements was equally brilliant. 
 Thank you bergdorf for yet another year of creative genius.

{ hollywould }

...many of you know I work at a little boutique called Hollywould a few times a month. 
It's on Elizabeth in of my favorite little spots in the city. We had our crazy fall sale this week...
as you can imagine women + fabulous shoes + sale = craziness. 
 This woman came into the store on Saturday...tried stuff on forever & then came back on Sunday. 
 I'm good with faces so I remembered her. We started talking and she said she had woken up in the middle of the night several times, thinking about the shoes and had to come back and buy them! Seriously? 
 I love shoes too but I can proudly say I've never lost sleep over them! 
 Ridiculous, yes, but guys, we like shoes, that's all there is to's the fun part of being a girl!

{ quotations }

some favorites:
love is the greatest refreshment in life.
pablo picasso.

leave nothing but footprints,
take nothing but pictures,
kill nothing but time.

life should not only be lived,
it should be celebrated.

some people think it's holding on
that makes one strong;
sometimes, it's letting go.
sylvia robinson.

do not wait until the sunset to appreciate
how beautiful the day has been.
grant goodson.

why stand behind someone, when there
is so much room to walk.
henry deford.

a friend may well be reckoned the masterpiece of nature.

when one feels the impulse to soar.

{ festive attire }

{ holiday treats }

I know Christmas is over but I couldn't let the year finish without showing a pic of the lovely Christmas display that I was priveleged enough to see everyday on my way up & down the stairs to my apartment. wow. enough said. I'm glad I didn't let the opportunity pass to take a picture of this special holiday treat.

...then, here are the remains of the tree from our apartment. We were so proud of our wrapping job! I know what you're thinking but we got the job done and no pine needles fell out on our way down the stairs. I was so proud of A.M. & I!
