MGMT wrote a song called Time To Pretend. It got me thinking: When I was a little girl, like Charlotte Yorke, I used to get all dressed up and try on my mom’s pearls. By the time I was a teenager, I was trying to look older to buy beers and cigarettes. Now, like Carrie Bradshaw says, we’re 24 going on 13, wishing we would get carded. New Years and Christmas are times to forget who we want to be and just be happy with who we are. Therefore, it has always been a tradition of mine, for as long as I can remember, to wear the most amazing dress on both Christmas and New Years and be myself. As outgoing or as shy as you may be.

My friends and I had a free day yesterday. So, we went to Bloomingdales and got chocolate from Valentine’s and went ice skating at Wollman Rink in Central Park. Braving the freezing weather was totally worth it when we saw the Bloomingdales and Barney’s windows. The Barney’s windows all had peace themes and Bloomies was all Christmasy.

I love this one because of the naughty and nice list. So cute!


This one is so cute. At the windows, all of these displays have some sort of movement. In this picture, the kids on the sleds are swaying and moving and stuff.


This one is my favorite. It’s the father coming home from war on Christmas eve. So heartwarming!

And if you look closely, behind the couple on the left is Santa ringing his bell for the Salvation Army. In New York, when you go to midtown, you can not only hear the bell ringing all of the time, but you can also smell the chesnuts being roasted on open fires.

Fall is coming. And, like any other New Yorker, I’m scouting out the newest trends. Whatever keeps you warm and is fashionable, I’ll take. I can’t wait for the smell chestnuts roasting in midtown, the sight of your breath, the Macy’s day parade, the Christmas trees at Rock center and Lincoln center, and of course, the first snow of the year. There’s nothing more comforting to me than sitting by a fire in Hamptons, listening to Christmas carols, having Hot Cocoa, and decorating our Christmas tree. Anyway, before all of the holidays begin, here are some of my suggestions for ways to keep you warm:
