After ironically raving about how French girls do it better just days before the biggest American holiday of the year, I thought I’d give the US of A some love today and share with you some of my favorite US-based designers…who actually all happen part of the CFDA — The Council of Fashion Designers of AMERICA (or as I like to say ‘Merica but pronounced mer-kuh).
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the
house château. Not a creature was stirring, not even a [Marc Jacobs Mickey] mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney flat screen TV with care. In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there [with Proenza in hand].
And then all this stuff happens, you know how it goes. I won’t bore you with the details, but I will talk about clothes. These festive finds will leave you feeling cheery and bright. Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night! (but really…the day’s just getting started)
Although maneuvering my way anywhere on Michigan Avenue or Oak Street during the holidays is less than ideal, holiday-themed windows make it much more manageable. Especially those of one of the stores that’s best known for their holiday windows — Barneys.
Are you sick of hearing about the holidays yet? If so, you’re a Scrooge. If not, let’s keep talking about them (because Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You NEVER gets old and I happen to enjoy a larger man with a white beard in a red suit…only in December though).
If all those gift guides got you confused and you’re just looking for a better way, as always…I got you covered.
