It may be just be raining in New York but in the windows of the Anthropologie flagship at Rockefeller Plaza its a full on blizzard. We happened upon this seemingly endless collection of windows today; and though we're not tremendous fans of Urban Outfitters' shabby-pretty-chic-hip (but not too hip) older sister, these displays definitely charmed us.
Snow is the theme—and there's a different storm in each window—spot flurrying paper, streamers, giant letterforms, and snowcones (well, the snowcones are kind of exploding out of an adorable vintage refrigerator complete with a recipe, and a diagram on how to make a proper snowman). We love the gigantic old Ford—probably a former cop car—bursting through a foam snowbank beyond an embellished stop sign. Why? Because it's pink. And checked.
You hardly notice the stock, what with all the snow, but it's holiday plaid, pleated, sweet, covered in brooches?Cute, but we're more interested in the busting in and building a fort.
