Window Shopping at Bergdorf Goodman

February 26th, 2015

Looking for something fun and free to do in NYC this weekend? We highly recommend strolling Fifth Avenue to witness the new and breathtaking Bergdorf Goodman window display, designed in honor of New York Fashion Week. BG commissioned installation artist Eva Petric to create a visionary “Lace Environment” in the windows of the store front.

This immaculate display is called “Personal UNiVERSEs” and consists of thousands of tiny, individual vintage lace pieces that have been combined to create large weblike environments. While the mannequins are dressed in looks from the stores new Spring 2015 collections, Petric’s lace networks serve as the backdrop and surrounding environment. These stunning windows will be on display until March 8th.

According to Petric:
“The assemblages are made out of old, given, or purchased  pieces of lace and hand works. Some I got from family and friends, and many were bought from flea markets around the world. Some were given to me by people who pulled them from storage–even out of cellars. So these pieces really represent for me the trans generational connections that tie us into worldwide webs.”

Here are a few of our favorite Spring trends to incorporate while shopping and when packing for your visit to NYC in the upcoming months:

  • Sporty Minimalism

  • Fringe and Bohemian


  • High Necklines and Statement Earrings

  • Gingham and “Blooming” Prints

  • 1970’s Nostalgia

  • Exposed Shoulders

Summertime Activities in New York

July 2nd, 2014
There are so many exciting activities to partake in during the summertime. One of our personal faves is the Chelsea Highline located on 10th Avenue along the West Side. Walk this historic railroad line raised far above the traffic on the streets, admire the plants and greenery, and take photos of gorgeous NYC views!

Start at 34th St Highline entrance in the morning, take the railroad path all the way down to the end into the West Village and then head to Soho for a Soho Nolita Shop Gotham Shopping Tour-it’s a perfect way to spend a summer day outdoors in New York. Walk the areas that New Yorkers enjoy most-Chelsea, West Village, Soho and Nolita all in one day!
