Tis' the season for...window dressers!

My book of the moment, Simon Doonan's Confessions of A Window Dresser, is a great book to read right in time for the fun holiday season. One thing that I absolutely love about living in New York City is looking at all the department store holiday windows come alive. Doonan, the amazing Creative Director of Barney's New York, tells a great story of how he came to be one of the best known window dressers in the world. His story is funny, encouraging, and inspiring for anyone that's not quite sure what they want to do in life. Doonan wasn't really sure what he wanted to do but he knew he was destined for greatness. I love that he took advantage of just about every opportunity given to him. He's just doing what he loves...you got to love that!
