“I am Eloise.
I am six.
I am a city child.
I live at The Plaza.”
I have been a huge Eloise fan since I was six years old and my Grammy gave me a copy of the Eloise book. I remember reading it a million times.
She is so Sassy.
I had heard Betsy Johnson had designed an Eloise Tree at the Plaza so when I was in NYC with the family I knew I had to stop in.
Unfortunately the tree hadn't been unveiled yet, but I at least got to check out the adorable shop and tea area ( How I wish they had this when I was younger!)
I love this picture of Eloise
The store was super cute and full of lots of pink Eloise goodies, there was even a tea room for kids
Since being in NYC the tree was officially revealed!!!
The Wall Street Journal stated the following about the event:
"When the 69-year-old grandmother showed up at the hotel Monday evening for the tree lighting, wearing black high tops and a set of reindeer horns held on her head by a pair of red lace panties, it was immediately clear that she was the perfect choice."Betsey Johnson is Eloise incarnate.
"Johnson and the fictional six-year-old resident (immortalized in the 1955 storybook, “Eloise”) share more than just a mop of raggedy, blonde hair. They both embody a precocious, do-as-you-please attitude, disregarding the rules and the stiffs who make them. “I totally relate to her,” Johnson said."
Pinkilicious...I'm in Love.
