When I was in New York a few weeks ago, I walked everywhere! One of my favorite walking spots was along 5th Avenue where I could window shop day or night. One store’s window displays were both entertaining and artistic. This window was a nod to the in-town museums. It reminded me of the Mona Lisa.
What store’s windows was I browsing? Bergdorf Goodman of course! Bergdorf Goodman is a famous luxury goods department store in Midtown Manhattan. This next window was just crazy, fun!
Bergdorf Goodman has found its way into a variety of movies and television shows over the years. In the 1962 movie That Touch of Mink, Doris Day is feted by Cary Grant with a shopping spree at Bergdorf Goodman’s. I can see Doris Day in this dress. Can’t you?
In the 1966 film, Penelope, the main character, played by Natalie Wood, uses the proceeds of a bank robbery to purchase her disguise at Bergdorf Goodman’s. However, she wouldn’t be wearing these shoes to “get away”.
In the 1981 film Arthur, Dudley Moore shops for sweaters at Bergdorf’s when he sees Linda (Liza Minnelli) shoplifting a tie there.
Bergdorf Goodman was a favorite shopping spot for Sex And The City’s main character, Carrie Bradshaw. It was featured in the opening to Sex and the City 2, with the girls meeting at the entrance of the store and buy wedding gifts there.
No matter what the film, television show, or the occasion, Bergdorf Goodman’s is just plain fun! What’s your favorite place to window shop?
