We're also enjoying the homemade snowflakes hanging in the window. And both of those red dresses just scream Christmas cheer, don't you think?

The Vuitton folks aren't going overboard this holiday season, instead focusing on a 1970s-esque vibe with muted tones and a lot of gold. We have a feeling those gold, textured pants would look good on anyone.

This year's theme is "The Magic of Christmas" and follows the holiday traditions started when the store was called Marshall Field's.

We're digging all the winter whites, and nothing says elegant holiday party like a pair of elbow-length cocktail gloves.
