-WEDNESDAY WINDOWS-

Heart "vault" at Kleinfeld Bridal

What transpires from a malady of the heart proliferates the power of "love." Some believe love is borne from luck. Others see it as a state of mind requiring definition and refinement. Where some act on account of love, others act in defense against its resulting emotion. Between episodes of 90 Day Fiancé and the second season of the Netflix series "You", the concept of "love" becomes subject to serious scrutiny. In both tangible and intangible forms, love results in both the highest and lowest points in life. As the new year inches in, remember those you love and take a moment to reflect on the reasons why. Have a Happy New Year and Keep reading to see the windows at Kleinfeld...

-WEDNESDAY WINDOWS-

Bergdorf Goodman 58th St. windows // "Scavenger Hunt" window

New adventures--with a newborn in tow--serve as a perfect parallel to this window at Bergdorf Goodman. As 7 weeks of parenthood pass, a trickle of all things baby has taken residence in the apartment and a natural flow of feeding and changing emerges. Every day presents a new perspective and a shift in priorities. Through ups and downs, the approaching holidays remind me that there is much to be thankful for; this year cements a marked milestone in maturity.
