Not all of us can live like Eloise, but we sure can dine like her!
The second we scheduled our visit to New York, I told my friends the one thing we absolutely had to do was have afternoon tea at The Plaza. Sure enough, I made sure to have a spot of tea at the spot for tea.
During the cold chill of February, nothing was more divine than sitting in the Palm Court of the luxurious hotel, sipping an earl grey and nibbling on finger sandwiches in our finery—trust me I had five cups of the blend and ate everything in sight! To this dining extravaganza that I’ve been practically dreaming about since I was a little girl, I wore a Salmon-colored chiffon gown with details reminiscent of the Jazz Age. I further continued 1920s motif by pairing my navy faux fur coat with the dress. I love how the floral embroidery on the fur picked up on the color of the dress under it and was tied together with my grandma’s vintage gold and salmon-colored studs. For those final touches of New York glamour, I stepped into the plaza in my favorite color-blocked Coach heels and a new favorite that I convinced myself to buy as a “souvenir”: my color-blocked pink and black Kate Spade purse that I picked up from the original store in Soho.
Most Christmases were not complete without watching “Eloise at the Plaza” and “Eloise at Christmastime.” I am so glad I finally had the chance to fulfill a childhood dream and spend an afternoon in a place she called home. I felt right at home there too, under the glitz of crystal chandeliers, a gorgeous rotunda, while sitting on cozy velour seats.
Keeping it Krischic,
