Since opening on Rush in 2010, Ted Baker has always had tongue-in-cheek window displays. This year, like the past two previous years has been a little disturbing and 60% raunchy with a dash of Brit wit. Since appearing in the window at the beginning of the season wearing only a G-string, it since has disappeared while a sale sign strategically placed over the snowman's frosty bits has appeared.
No matter how uncomfortable this makes us feel, the sign says "prices stripped", which means we should be happy this dancing snowman. Over the weekend, prices have been reduced even further--up to 50% off. Highlights of the sale include a strapless lace boned-bodice dress, originally $795, marked to to $397; an oxblood faux fur jacket, originally $365, marked to $182; wool sweaters, like this one from $165-$180 marked to $82-$90.
