Coach
It's raining lights, but feel free to leave your umbrella at home.

All we want for Christmas is an extremely large assortment of vintage Coach bags. Think that can happen for us?
Tiffany & Co.
Holiday miracles do exist: we've been dreaming of Tiffany-box window treatments for years.

Most ladies would agree that a mini village fit for Tiffany jewelry should be more than just a seasonal display—it should stay up year-round.

We're glad Jay Z harnessed the whole "diamonds are forever" theme. This one's sure to be a hit with the fancy New York female demographic.
Bergdorf Goodman
Holy moly, did Linda Fargo outdo herself this year or what? Here, Bergdorf Goodman's take on Halloween (and, more broadly, all American holidays).

More than 100 people were needed to perfect these masterpieces, including a very Montauk Fourth of July.

And lastly, April Fools' Day. Throwing everything upside down was a clever touch, Ms. Fargo.
Bloomingdale's
Pull a Pitbull and go "Mr. Worldwide" with Bloomingdale's international displays. Was that too much of a stretch? Sorry.

Go on a gondola ride in Venice and snap a picture at the Leaning Tower of Pisa—without stepping off that sidewalk.

New York's windows feature a zooming yellow cab, which really does characterize our city's essence quite well.

If only London's windows featured a Harrods. A life-sized Harrods in which we could shop, that is.
Kate Spade New York
This colorful, shimmer-heavy display is so Kate Spade in the best way. "Putting on the glitz" works for you, KS!
Henri Bendel
Fun fact: Henri Bendel's windows star Woody Allen, Sarah Jessica Parker and Whoopi Goldberg (among others), all transformed into sculptures from original illustrations by the famed Al Hirschfeld.

A closer look at the dinner party scene. What a crew!

Lord & Taylor
We're digging this vintage influence at Lord & Taylor. Take a close look, too: the attention to detail in this scene is amazing.

So, so much to take in!
