Mariah Walton owns a trendy Philadelphia clothing boutique, West London. And this 29-year-old Philadelphian knows how best to show off the merchandise — by wearing it herself. We "glimpsed" Walton at the Havana Club, where she was a guest at the annual fundraiser for Holding the Line Foundation, founded by NFL free agent Jason Murphy to help underprivileged youth in sports mentorship programs. Walton looked oh-so-chic in a dress of her own design. It had a turquoise, yellow and black crochet bodice, with a black lace back and a black cotton bubble skirt embroidered with flowers.

In old Hollywood movies, the stylish set all shopped at Saks Fifth Avenue. Women with gloved hands peered into windows accented with the store's signature script signage and dreamed of filling hatboxes and shopping bags with elegance and luxury. But few women wear gloves to go shopping or have much use for hatboxes anymore. As the times have changed, so has Saks -- becoming gradually more contemporary, while holding on with great determination to its upscale heritage and image. So how best to indicate to the world the department store's complex personality: New but familiar.

NEW YORK -- "Will this be used for Beyonce's hair?" asks Sandra Magsamen. She fingers a strand of crystal beading at Spaeth Designs, a New York company that creates lavish decorations for department stores. Surrounding her are dozens of carpenters, painters and electricians all busily working to transform her illustrated children's book, The Gift (Glitterati Books, 2003), into holiday windows for Saks Fifth Avenue. This is a perilous enterprise, as the original magic can easily be lost in the new version.
