"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair..." A daily dose of holiday windows from Paris department stores.
Rapunzel and forest creatures.
Twinkling Northern lights, with fur and chiffon.
Note the fox in the background of this wintery scene.
Are you ready for a journey to the North Pole? Or perhaps you'd prefer Norway or Sweden?

haha - that cell phone camera reminds me that we often snuck things into our "creations" - that were to be done TO THE LETTER as they had been designed either by corporate or a guest designer - or, rarely, by our team - and we couldn't help having a tiny bit of fun (such as sunglasses on faux marble busts, tiaras on dogs, neckties trailing from back pockets....) This makes me think also of the time I forgot my shoes (that I always ended up taking off as I crawled around) in the FRONT of a scene....that translates to *up against the window glass* - !!

What gorgeous windows from imaginative designers. My hair looks like that in the a.m., but a brown/greying version.

Oh... how lovely! To be in Paris at Christmas. The stuffed critters make me a tad nervous ... animal lover that I am... but everything else is fabulous! Thanks so much for bringing a bit of Paris home for the holidays!

That's wild! Very cool.

These store windows are incredible. I think that fox in the background was "leering"!! Why would they have included a phone in the lovely table setting? Very urban but totally took away from the window setting. Loving those gold lame boots!!

That fabulously imaginative architectural knitwear looks as if it might be by Sandra Buckland -- wonderful, wonderful, windows! Thanks Tara.
