    window dressing

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    They are too loving in public; I donít believe in it, I think itís window dressing.

    window dressing = pretence, simulation, beautification, presenting of the things in favorable light

    Thank you for your efforts.
