I’ve posted Eloise once before but she’s a fun character so let’s revisit, shall we? She’s perhaps the most uptown of uptown girls having grown up at the Plaza Hotel and we all know what happens to uptown girls when they grow up—they shop like fiends. Without fail, every time I take a spin uptown to Barney’s, Bergdorfs or Saks, they’re out in full force decked in finery and weighed down by Amex Black cards. Now, that doesn’t make them bad people, actually most of them are quite friendly but you know Eloise would be quite similar. So here you go, Eloise, the uptown girl all grown up.

There are a few things in the city that let you know it’s the holidays—there’s the Rockefeller Center tree, the snowflakes on Saks and those Santa guys but I don’t think I enjoy any of them half as much as I enjoy the windows at Bergdorf Goodman. Take a look at this video they just put up, so good.
