Upper East Side, 66th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues

A window of Oscar de la Renta's store on the corner. I was taken by the matching jewel-like sidewalk hardware, especially the large thimble thing.

And the next window. I stood there for a while admiring the display and the middle dress in particular. I was saying to myself that it looked like architecture (the middle dress), although I'm at a loss to defend that thought.

This store has been here for only a few years; before that women had to wait for his new collections to show up at high end department stores. Women don't like waiting!

See map.

The dresses photo is pretty spectacular, no? And the Oscar window, too. Those three (wo)manikins seem to be doing well despite their lack of heads.
