While people are still trying to decide between turkey or prime rib and which is better stuffing or dressing, one of the holiday season's traditions has already holiday windows. This week one of my favorite stores in New York, Henri Bendel unveiled it's holiday windows. The theme, The Nutcracker. The window unveiling was accompanied by a party with a portion of the proceeds going toward the New York City Ballet.

Holiday Windows at Henri Bendel
The main window captures Act One of the Christmas classic, with a 6-foot-tall Nutcracker and tree accessorized with mini monitors playing footage from the ballet.

Three ballerinas also take center stage, donning Swarovski jewels and tutus. One, masked as a mouse, rocks bling from House of Lavande, Natasha Accessories, and Jennifer Behr.

As customers as customers exited the store they were greeted by floating mannequins in 15 different custom looks by Marc Happel, director of the New York City Ballet Costume Shop.
