Today, they showed off the new Shrek balloon. They've been pushing the Shrek theme at Macy's. A smaller version is sitting over the main entrance of the Herald Square store (btw... this year's windows are based on "Miracle on 34th Street" YAWN... like they haven't done something like that before!). I was personally very happy to see the Hello Kitty balloon (I could easily live in a Sanrio store, living on Hello Kitty waffles.)
A few years ago, Lucky and I tried to see the balloons T-G eve (all tucked in their mesh) but the lines were incredible and it was really cold. We went out to dinner instead.
PS: The PR secret guest was Sara Jessica Parker. Disappointing. She gets all the credit for her SITC outfits when it was really Patricia Field (whose basement store I used to visit all the time, lusting after skull printed dresses and drag wear and who is having a 20% off sale tomorrow).
