Christmas Windows – The Big Blogging Week – post #4 of 6

Hey All,

Firstly, I have to admit that sales give me the heebie-jeebies. The thought of all those sad, ripped, make-up-stained, weird-coloured clothes, hanging limply on stock-room rails, makes me shudder. January, makes me never want to  shop again.  Today, however, I was completely suckered into the Debenhams pre-Christmas sale. (up to 25% off everything between now and Sunday). Everything in this sale is still on proper rails, nothing is stained and all the sizes are there. The only thing that suggests that there is a sale, are smallish tags showing 20%, 25% etc. off, hanging above everything.

I’m a total sucker for heels and to cut a long story short. I bought these:

Butterfly by Matthew Williamson €54 now €43.20 I don’t usually go for satin (?) shoes but I quite liked the vintage-70;s feel of the grosgrain detailing.

I actually originally went into town to look at all the Christmas windows. I know there’s already been a bit of coverage on the mythical Brown Thomas windows but I thought it’s only fair to do all three Irish department store in Dublin. I did the same last year, this year I’m going to leave it up to you to decide what you think about them all.

Brown Thomas

Clery & Co.

Arnotts

I recognise that dressHayworth Vintage included in the Christmas window. Props.

    The displays in BT are always the most glam and opulent. But the others are still lovely. Is that ladder in Clerys window meant to be there? Possibly not… 😛 Love the shoes. Bargain for 43 quid. x

      You know what? I’m not so sure about that ladder, at first I was like – Really?!? Has that just been left behind? Then I thought, Oh maybe it’s supposed to be the ladder that you use to put the fairy / angel on top of the tree??? We’ll have to see if it stays put! Xx

    I used to love going to see the BT windows when I was a young un. That love has only grown over the years. Absolutely stunning!

    On a second look I’m creeped out by the headless mannequins in the Clerys wondow…majorly creeped out.
