Now if you’re blue
and you don’t know
where to go to,
why don’t you go
where fashion sits?
Puttin’ on the Ritz
Puttin’ on the Ritz, a turn of phrase coined by Irving Berlin in 1929 for the song of the same name, was a slang expression to indicate “dressing stylishly”, inspired by London’s luxurious Hotel Ritz. There is no better time of year than the holiday season and arrival of the new year to “dress to the nines” and don our best home decor for seasonal high-style entertaining. If you’re short of inspiration peruse the folowing rooms designed with madcap, theatrical glamour in mind. Until 2015, I’ll see you at The Ritz!
