It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...Bloomingdale's

I had an itinerary all set for yesterday and my stop to photograph was the Time Warner Building. I left with plenty of time to include a stop inside at Sephora -- a great cosmetics chain -- and redeem a coupon. But the subway was skipping that stop due to construction and the best laid plan of mice and bloggers was thrown off. I realized that my final destination was a block from Bloomingdale's and that would be a great place to continue Buttercup's Holiday Album. I wasn't at all disappointed and I don't think my blog friends will be either.

The front of  the store is decked in white lights. The Chrysler Building is lit in the distance.

The theme here is Dynamic Duos and we see Batman and Robin and Cleopatra and Marc Anthony...

...the Obamas and Santa and Mrs. Claus

 This window is entitled "Secret Santa" and the gentleman in the jacket looks into the mirror and sees the reflection of Santa.

This window had Penniwig in mind. The tree is decorated in shoes and there are glittery shoes decorating the rest of the window, too.

I met Mary for a movie and dinner and there wasn't all that much decoration up either in my neighborhood or on our walk after the movie. But Mary, my scout on Fifth Avenue, said there were lots of decorations to see there. A trip to Fifth Avenue is in store soon. Not sure if I can get there before next weekend, but I've got a definite trip planned soon.

Wishes for a great week!

Thanks for sharing the terrific pictures! I hope your weekend is a great one too. Thankfully I only have to work 3 days this week due to Thanksgiving. That is something to be thankful for!

Oh Buttercup thanks so much for sharing the bright lights of your beloved city! I remember taking the train to Chicago in the very early 60's, to see the dressed holiday windows. The hustle bustle in the background as we walked the sidewalks gazing into those wide, deep windows...oh my, it was a wonderful time to be alive. It's a great time to visit a city, isn't it? Can't wait to see you upcoming holiday posts!

Thanks so much for sharing. I've always wondered what some of the windows looked liked at Christmas as I've never been there during the Christmas season. So cute!

Gosh, what memories you have brought to mind! In old New Orleans, down on Canal Street, we would go see the window displays for Christmas and Easter! The Christmas displays were spectacular, like those you are showing!!! It was an essential part of the holiday to go see what the "window dressers" had come up with...
