Holiday Window Shopping: Uptown Glamour

The best thing about window shopping during the holidays is that it doesn't cost a penny. And that's a great thing, especially when perusing the glamorous and glitzy vitrines of designer shops on Madison Avenue. I started my wintry stroll at Ralph Lauren.

This masculine montage in what Ralph refers to as The Mansion is classic, yet colorful, with a mix of cozy tartans, hunting scenes and a champagne toast set for two! Cheers!

Speaking of cocktails, Tom Ford's creatives must have raided a gigantic ice bucket for display pieces in his inimitable presentations.

Appearing as if they are frozen in time, these goods were right at home during the winter chill of late-night Madison Avenue.
The French brand Herm├Ęs offered dramatic, yet organic displays for its luxury goods.

Created by Charlie Baker of Baker Structures, they show clever use of natural finds for unique prop pieces.

Tomorrow, we head over to Barneys New York for a food fest, and then peer into the fantasy-wrapped windows of Bergdorf-Goodman.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter


  1. Thank's for the window tour of the cool shops. I havent been able to see them out here yet. Happy Holidays to you and your family...............TALLULAH'S

  2. This is absolutely the best treat. It reminds me of my childhood in Europe where we would partake in Leche Vitrines in Paris and Schaufensterbummel in Germany.. Lubbock, Texas just is lacking!!! Merry Christmas to you.

  3. Thank you for sharing! The Ralph Lauren window gives me lots of inspiration for my own home, but the Hermes window is my favorite!
