On The Avenue: Big, Little Luxuries

The warm temperatures today boosted me outside, and I look a stroll on Madison Avenue . A short walk, but a lot to see!

~THANK YOU TO THE LOVELY TOURIST WHO TOOK MY PHOTO~

This is my favorite place to window shop. This alluring stretch of flagship luxury stores; a hop, skip and a jump away. I keep my wallet at home sometimes to quell the temptation! On this particular day I only went inside once, and most of the photos are taken from the shop windows. These photos are for inspiration!

More Cartier, you say? How about an organically shaped ring in 18k yellow gold in a bold dome?

My favorite image, a dress crafted in fresh flowers! Complete with headdress, too!


While the world is full of upset, I feel a bit trivial by showing these images, but beautiful things always inspire me, even if I can not have them.  A distraction of the lavish kind~

Doesn’t this floral dress make you feel as though you have stepped into a Wonderland of Flowers? Which image is your favorite?

I hope you liked this little glimpse of the city!  Can I call this cardio?
