Project: NYC Holiday
When window shopping turns into actual shopping and leads you to a Willy Wonka like Chanel pop up store, you know it’s Christmas time in NYC!
There’s something special about this time of year in the city that never sleeps. With twinkling lights and glitter galore, how can one not venture out to explore that famous tree and go window shopping?
My adventure begins at Bloomingdales on 59th street, where I found a mesmerizing and shimmering dress with an NYC backdrop, (Bloomingdale’s store included).
While on my way to Saks Fifth Avenue, the mother of all Christmas hot-spots and lights shows, I was invited into a Chanel pop up right off the street. A short multi-level visit of fragrance cafes and red walls, this pop-up offered shoppers Instagram worthy scenes of Chanel No.5 and a menu full of fragrances awaiting to be inhaled.
Finally, I made it to Saks Fifth Avenue and got to see those famous holiday windows. All this window shopping, of course, lead me to do some actual shopping. The last two pictures show a velvet Ted Baker handbag and leather Rebecca Minkoff bag spotted in Bloomingdales and Ted Baker on Fifth Avenue. Both perfect accessory options for that upcoming NYE party.
Has anyone else been exploring their local city lights this time of year? What have you found? Let me know in the comments!
Happy holidays from Trend-mix! 🙂
