Ahh, Bergdorfs in the fall.I always stop in when I’m in NYC.To me there is a magic about this wonderful old New York institution. It is filled with fantastic old-school sales assistants, well dressed customers swathed in cashmere, and stylish people from all over the world. The windows are exquisite and an event in and of themselves..I always have lunch on the 7th floor, I adore the restaurant. Today the fall foliage in Central Park was in full bloom as seen from above. The Christmas shop has opened and all the ornaments are out. I don’t really need to buy anything( tho I usually do😊)I just adore the atmosphere of it all. Somehow the fall makes it even more magical.#bergdorfgoodman #fallinnyc. Missing you @charlottesloane and @jdavidtz and thinking of the fun times every time we are here together.❤️
