From The Washington Post
Confessions of a Window Dresser
ought to be a depressing read, a reminder of the price-tag culture into which we're sunk, material boys and girls in a material world. But Simon Doonan makes it all seem so fab, so wonderfully delish, and he does it in such a guilt-free shopping spree of here-and-now enthusiasm, that he comes close to restoring the innocence to this consumer paradise.
