My husband and I recently re-watched “The Muppets Take Manhattan” (1984). Neither of us had seen it in years and years, but we both found it as entertaining as we remembered, even if we were watching it through slightly different eyes. I got one of my biggest laughs from the sequence that begins with Kermit the Frog chatting with his friend Jenny, a waitress who’s an aspiring costume designer (such a New York occupation/aspiration!). As a child, I wouldn’t have been too concerned with the actual location of their conversation…
Even Bergdorf’s fantastical window displays begin with the most basic of elements!

I just received a Bergdorf Goodman catalogue with details about the store’s upcoming winter beauty event. From Monday, January 14 through Sunday, January 27, shoppers who make a purchase of $200 or more on the Beauty Level will receive “a couture cosmetics bag filled with deluxe-sized must-haves of the season.”
The brands included in this gift bag include A Dozen Roses, AmorePacific, Antica Farmacista, Chantecaille, Ivo Pitanguy, Sensai by Kanebo, Kaplan MD, Kate Somerville, Kiehl’s, Laura Mercier, Natura Bisse, Orlane, Restoresea, ReVive, Sulwhasoo, Tata Harper, and Tom Ford.
I have many childhood memories of going to see the Christmas displays in New York’s department store windows. My mother would bring me, and sometimes my grandmother would join us. We might eat a little bag of roasted chestnuts while we gazed at the imaginative tableaux staged by Lord & Taylor, Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, and all the rest.
More recently, I’ve enjoyed visiting the annual windows with a circle of female friends who share my love of such frivolities. Our favorites are the windows of Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue. I may not see any of these friends in person this December, but they are very much on my mind and in my heart nonetheless.
I just received this mailing for Bergdorf Goodman’s latest beauty promotion, taking place from Friday, November 23 through Sunday, December 2, 2012.
Rather than single, department-wide “gift with purchase” bag, this is a week of promotions at individual counters around Bergdorf’s beauty floor. Many of the major brands seem to be participating…
