Friday Window Shopping

May 14, 2011
I took the day off work to go to South Coast Plaza. Two-day weekends simply don’t allow enough time to goof off and have fun. I just finished a series of presentations at work so I decided a day off was in order. There were so many beautiful window displays. How fun would it be to have a job in visuals? Unfortunately I didn’t get pictures of all the pretty ones because my iPhone died while I was there. Most of these are from today’s mini shopping trip. There are a couple that are from earlier in the year.

Tiffany & Co.



Louis Vuitton (from earlier this year, can’t believe it’s already mid-May)

Jo Malone – lovely Cherry Blossom displays

Chanel Boutique {swoon}

I missed out on Dior which always has beautiful displays, but you can see Dior’s reflection:

Have a happy Friday! It appears Blogger is still working out a few kinks with their maintenance. I noticed a number of comments have mysteriously disappeared. If they aren’t restored in the next day or two, I will restore them myself from my emails.

For those wondering, all pics in this particular post were taken with my iPhone which I believe is the very first generation of iPhones. I’m one you would call a “late adopter” of technology and rarely upgrade on new gadgets unless pushed (my regular Sony camera is after all more than 5 years old). Although, when I do, I have to say, I love to oooh and aahhh at all the fancy features and often wonder why I didn’t change sooner.

Back on topic – who makes your favorite window displays?

    Agree, agree, agree: 2-day weekends are not enough for me either, and I work out of the home! A job working with visuals (powerpoint) is fun, but it's work too though.

    Thanks for the pix!

  • eee, sounds like a blast! I always love the window displays at Louis Vuitton. Nordies usually has some great creative window displays too.

    One of the things I've always enjoyed about SCP is the luxuary boutique experience. It's such fun to ooh and aah over the window displays and then to go in to admire the collection of clothes, accessories, or beauty products. An entire shop devoted to a single designer or brand is so much better than just seeing a small counter or a rack of clothes in a department store. I know some people are put off by what they perceive as "chi-chi", but I've always found the people working in the boutiques to be friendly and welcoming. There is the occasional SA with her nose in the air, but that's true even in run-of-the-mill department stores.

    Thanks for sharing some of your pictures with us. It's put me in the mood to drive south for a day of window shopping.
