The last two months of the year are important for many retailers, but this year, consumers just didn’t shop.
As we’ve seen from the pictures that have emerged over the past few weeks, the White House does not skimp on the holiday decorations. Nope, no dollar store tinsel or half-heartedly hung wreaths around here. This year, the building boasted 54 Christmas trees, a 300-pound White House replica, an eerily accurate rendering of First dog Bo Obama, and halls festooned with garlands, bows, and twinkling lights a’ plenty. But how did it all come together?
So Santa has come and gone and all of the presents are unwrapped…now what? Well, we’ve gathered 25 fashion images celebrating the season’s ribbons, bows, reindeer, snow, sparkling lights, and wintery whites — one for each day of December that’s already passed. It’s kind of like an advent calendar, but you can open them up all at once!
As far as holiday-themed YouTube videos go, we didn’t think anything could top the DMX-mas rendition of “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer”, but that was before Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana released this psychedelic masterpiece of season’s greetings.
Even if you are a die-hard delivery devotee, we’ll bet there’s someone on your list this year whose epicurean tastes are, shall we say, a tad more refined than that. Whether you’re shopping for the hostess with the mostess or your sweet-toothed friend, we’ve got a gift that they — and their kitchen — are sure to love. And who knows? Maybe you’ll be invited over for a home-cooked meal sometime soon.
It’s a hard task indeed to stand behind four tiny kids dressed in elf outfits and not have your own adorableness pale in comparison, but the Obama family put in a valiant effort at the “Christmas in Washington” concert last night, smiling big behind a crew of Santa’s little helpers.
We all have one: that friend/sibling/roommate who thinks Cory and Topanga returning to the sequel of Boy Meets World is the best news they’ve heard all year; who have every season of the original Beverly Hills, 90210 on DVD (guilty); whose Pog collection is still going strong; or who absolutely refuses to update their gaming system past their old Nintendo 64. Luckily, the Nineties are having a bit of a moment right now, and we’ve rounded up ten of the best gifts out there sure to please those with a penchant for blasts from the past.
The holiday season means a never-ending rotation of parties — and all that bubbly has a tendency to lead to some less-than-classy situations. Thankfully, we’ve got Derek Blasberg to give us tips on etiquette, or in this particular case, eticat.
The White House’s holiday theme this year is “Joy To All”, but we think Michael Kors must be feeling the seasonal cheer even more than the rest of us today, since Michelle Obama wore his glittery gold skirt suit this afternoon to hang with military families and show off all of the festive decorations.
Last week we found out that Target and Neiman Marcus are collaborating with CFDA designers on a 50-piece holiday capsule collection, and now we have a behind-the-scenes video that has everything you need to know about it!
High-end Target collaborations are nothing new, but now Target is teaming up with another retail giant to bring luxury to the masses this holiday season.
