Pink and Silver--my first window of the season.
Friday night after the lighting of the Christmas tree, I crossed SW Yamhill at Broadway. I stood on the corner and took a photo of the MAX going westward--you can see it at Mama and Me from PDX--and turned right to walk north on Broadway. That's when this woman--wearing a hot pink wig, wrapped in a strategically placed pink ribbon, and sitting in a store window--grabbed my attention. I stepped closer, past the pillar on the corner in front of the door, and took this photo.
Looking to the right, I saw another interesting window, but before I could walk towards it, I noticed this sign on the inside of the pillar. I love the attention to detail shown by the window dresser(s)--surely this pink light reflected in the sign came about as part of that person(s) creativity.
Here's that other attractive window. I never would have thought about hot pink ribbon in relation to the holidays, but it works for me. I also like the different size silver balls which match the color of the store's sign and the gigantic clear Christmas balls. It's all in the details, isn't it, CDPBers?
