The Dogs of Bergdorf Goodman

I love this ensemble, entirely by Dior.

I popped into Manhattan with my daughter today to remind myself I live in New York City (I forget all the time since I get bogged down in the details of day-to-day life) and do some window shopping at Bergdorf. Even though it was muggy and hot, Bergdorf definitely got me thinking of fall with their windows on Fifth Avenue that showed patterned coats with slender trousers in solid colors, high heels, and a collection of amazing bags! I love pants so much more than skirts or dresses so these looks definitely spoke to me.

The back of the coat. Looks good coming and going!

A great floral coat by Giambattista Valli.

I am wild about the color of this Saint Laurent bag. The perfect shade of pink!

My favorite windows this time out, however, were the ones on 57th Street that featured a few outfits along with dogs galore! My daughter was not impressed. “When will they show cats?” she asked. She is cat obsessed. “Maybe next time!” I told her.

I consider myself a fan of both cats and dogs so I couldn’t help being charmed by these pooches in the window.

Here’s to the dog days of summer!

The clothes were just okay, but the dogs were divine!

Beautiful dress, beautiful dog.

I do love an Afghan hound, which I see very rarely in person.

Dachshunds are one of my favorite breeds of dogs. I love their funny personalities.

I can never resist a standard poodle since we had a white one named Beau when I was growing up.


This dog wins the staring contest.

Another irresistible face.

I love a dog with glamorous hair!

Oh, what wonderful window displays! The dogs are fabulous. Oy, now I'm absolutely craving some NY time...maybe next year....

Jill said...

Oh Deja, New York needs a visit from you! If you do come to town let me know if you want to meet for coffee. And the Bergdorf windows are fabulous any time of year! XO, Jill

I do love looking at those window displays. Did you see the fab Bergdorf doco on netfliz "Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf"? I highly recommend and they go over the whole window display process. I am now a big Linda Fargo fan too!

What fun window displays! You know what a crazy dog lady I am...the chihuahua is my favorite. Coco and Daisy need some wigs ;)

Jill said...

Hi GSL! How are you finding blogging so far? I love the Bergdorf windows so much. Year-round, they are always so inspiring. I saw that Bergdorf documentary last year but need to see it again. Thanks for the reminder. And isn't Linda Fargo the best? I always love to see what she is wearing. XO, Jill

Jill said...

I think I may be a crazy dog lady too, even though I am currently a cat owner. Dogs just make me so happy when I see them so I couldn't resist taking pictures of these windows! I would LOVE to see Coco and Daisy with wigs on but I'm not sure they will let you put them on. Ha! XO, Jill

The dogs are awesome!! So glad you took the pictures. I also love that second floral coat! I am like you Jill...I love pants so much! I have to make myself wear an occasional skirt or dress! Thanks for the window treat!

Jill said...

Hi Naomi, I wish you were in town so we could check out the windows together. We would have a great time! XO, Jill

Jill said...

Hi Suzanne, I love sharing NYC with everyone, especially the windows featuring fashion! XO, Jill

Jill said...

Hi Dawn Lucy, I'm with you, a lover of both dogs and cats. I hope Bergdorf will do a cat window sometime soon. My daughter will go crazy for it. So will I for that matter! XO, Jill

Jill said...

Hi Pam, once I get in the habit of wearing skirts and dresses, I'm okay with it, but I really do prefer pants. And isn't that floral coat great? Giambattista Valli is getting it so right these days, I love almost everything I see by him. He is so talented. XO, Jill

I like the wolf looking dog!! I was a cat person until I turned 30 and developed insane cat allegories... So, now we have a dog because the kids HAD to have a pet... And now I love dogs, too :)

Jill said...

Hi Becky, isn't that wolf statue beautiful? I loved it, it was one of my favorites. I love seeing pics of your gorgeous dog Foxy, I think your kids are so lucky to have that dog! XO, Jill
