Bright Lights, Long Nights

3 more days until Christmas - I am just bursting with excitement! 

NYC is so festive and beautiful when it is aglow at Christmastime - I'm so happy to share photos with you today from Husband's and my long weekend in the big city. 

As you know, we stopped into Bendel's for a few baubles for me - I adore those brown and white boxes! 




The Tiffany's carousel window displays were absolutely stunning, and the surprises inside the windows were magical. 



We stopped into Louis Vuitton to give Louis a little Christmas treat - a new monogram! 



We popped into the Plaza for some champagne cocktails and hors d'oeuvres... the pink tree made me positively giddy!   




The tree at Rockefeller Center was a must, of course. 




Dinner at the Carlyle was divine. 


The window displays of Christian Louboutin and Oscar de la Renta were too precious not to snap a photo! 



We had a Gossip Girl moment and brunched at the Palace Hotel. 




... and found Chuck Bass's Hotel Empire. 


I slipped into a few LBD's at Milly on Madison. 


We reminisced about Paris at LadurĂ©e. 


And took a stroll near Wall Street to take in more landmarks.  



We ended the weekend with an emotional visit to the 9/11 Memorial. 


Merry, merry Christmas from Mr. & Mrs. Champagne in the Big City! XO

WOW! You guys really did a lot. Sounds perfect :) And who knew that the Hotel Empire was real?!?!? Not this girl!

I'm heading there Friday morning and this post has me even MORE excited about it, if that's possible!
