My very own Bergdorf window
Bergdorf Goodman’s holiday window design contest ends in a couple of hours—I just submitted my entry. I’m a huge fan of Simon Doonan (love his books and his holiday youtube web-ispodes), and even though there are over 2,500 entries to compete with, the thought of a private tour of the windows is enough to keep me starry-eyed. I’ve been toying with my entry all week – I began with this…
…but it wasn’t quite right. So I pulled my better half aside this evening to help me tweak my design. He advised me to lose the mirror image, add a shot of contrast, and a turban. After hearing his tips, I came up with my finished entry:
Voila! There’s still an hour and change to submit a design if you’re feeling inspired… ☆
While we anxiously await the results, here are a few distractions:
→ My ex-house boy, dear friend, and Fusion Fashion Show darling Marc Sebastian Faiella is in Opening Ceremony’s dramatic/cute short film, Une Pomme Est Une Pomme.
→ Whoever you are, whatever you’re into, no one can deny how much fun it is to look at backstage shots from the Victoria’s Secret show.
→ Daily Candy‘s Holiday Ideas site has everything from gift-giving advice to dinner party instructional videos, party dresses, makeup ideas, and mo’! This literally kept me busy for hours.
→ Since the NYT declared turbans trendy again the other day, The Glamourai (who was honored with a ping-back via that aforementioned NYT article) has created a lovely visual round-up of turbans worn in all fashions, and if the trend wasn’t set into motion before, it sure will be now, with the unstoppable power of the blogosphere.
Last item… the mask I got in Chinatown today. I really love it. I wore it all the way home on the side of my head.
Until the next round…
