FUN, MOON & STARS

It's that time of year again to start featuring one of my favorite parts of the holidays....window shopping!!!! 

As this is posting, I'm most likely on the train back to Philly from a day in New York. The team and I always go into NYC for the day and visit the other stores and check out the windows, have a swanky lunch, and take in holiday sights. But right before Thanksgiving, I was also at our main flagship to help with displays and windows. I've had these pictures, but didn't want to feature them to early. This year we had a fun theme I think. Bloomie’s marks the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with window after window of space-age displays, and the signs of the zodiac. I thought of out dear Dog's Mother and Penquin this year when I heard the theme. In one window, robotic arms slowly reach out to grab an ornament and, carefully, automatically attach it to a golden tree: Elon Musk might want to take notes. In another window, several blasé-looking, nonbinary mannequins — imagine the Jetsons, retooled by David Bowie — recline in what’s titled “a Stellar Soiree.” Several windows on the store’s Third Avenue side complete the show, including one with a microphone that lets you karaoke to “Jingle Bells”. I unfortunately wasn't there for the unveiling, but this year we had John Legend kick off the windows unveiling with his singing. Some of these shots are also from my store location.
Yes, the rocket comes out of the window!
One of the mannequins I styled for the  Stellar Party window. I loved the hair and would probably wear it. OPPS..it's from my own collection.
Inside the store were variously placed moments featuring the zodiacs signs. 
Aquarius was the one I got!!! I thought it turned out rather nice. Just alots of spray painting!!!
Some of the men's mannequins I styled this season. The Lad says they all look like me!
And these orbs you see or all metal, or crystal orbs and take almost three full days to get up and in place. The finished look was in the opening picture. These are usually a big crowd pleaser.

If anyone does get into New York be sure not to miss inside our store... Ralph’s Winter Wonderland Polar Ice Bar, an entire bar made entirely out of ice, and serves a Daily Harvest latte and coffee sampling counter. On my last day there, we were in for a treat as Adam Rippon was shopping in the store amd was in the ice bar!!!!!!
He was pretty cool and had on very TIGHT pants. I asked if I could hold on to his ice cubes while he gave me ice skating lesson. I'm still awaiting an answer on the Adam.

    1. With store shuttering every year...the tour is getting shorter. Then we'll have to start a bar tour.
