GeneralBergdorf Goodman Holiday Windows 2013

Bergdorf Goodman Holiday Windows 2013:
Every holiday season New Yorkers and travelers from afar can expect a mighty show from designer David Hoey and his team of assistants. The team works year-round to create the famed holiday window displays on Fifth Avenue. For 2013 they chose the unexpected theme “Holidays on Ice”.

In true “maximalist” style, this year’s materials included 1000 feet of shimmering icicles framing scenes like Arbor Day, Halloween, and even a frosty Fourth of July. Breathtaking couture from Alexander McQueen Resort, Oscar de la Renta, and Rodarte dresses the mannequins, including a custom onyx plumed gown designed by Naeem Khan for the nine foot tall mannequin featured in the Halloween-themed window!

GeneralEmployee Picks: Scary Movies

SomethingWickedWeekScaryMovies2There’s no better way to get into the Halloween spirit than by gearing up with some scary movies! We asked around LuLu*s headquarters to find out which freaky flicks are employee favorites.

The Strangers

“This is my favorite scary movie because it constantly had me jumping out of my seat and I couldn’t sleep without leaving a light on for weeks! The creepy masks that they wear are absolutely terrifying, and Scott Speedman isn’t too bad to look at either ;) ” – Kristina, Customer Service

The Shining

“The Shining stars Jack Nicholson in easily his most unhinged role. His isolation amps up the overall terror in this surreal nightmare of a film. This movie gives me the chills because his acting is so realistic that it makes me believe people could go insane from being isolated. Watch with caution, and don’t go to room 247!” -Holly, Fulfillment Department

Dead Alive 

“This cheerfully campy, cult classic manages to capture every aspect I appreciate in a horror movie: cheesiness, comedic relief, some blood and gore, a lack of CGI, a heartwarming love story, and zombies…lots of them. There is plenty of blood, guts, and gore in this splatterfest B-film to make you cringe a little, but it’s so over-the-top cheesy that I find myself grinning from ear to ear most of the time. While I’m giggling about its cartoonish humor, they bring it all together with a heartwarming love story.” – Christina, Copywriter

What’s your favorite scary movie?
