I am off to tea at the Ritz on Christmas Eve and I have no idea what to wear. Well it is tea at 7:30pm.
I have black heels and emerald green heels. I will be living out of a suitcase for the week as I fly back to Australia on Christmas Day.
So what can I buy that is suitable? Was thinking a plain LBD. Saw some in M&S. I am a size 18, 5'7, hourglass shape and my budget is quite small. I was thinking something quite classic. Black dress, slingbacks, (I may splurge on new shoes) etc
I have had tea at the Ritz a few times and have seen people very dressed up and also people very casual. Obviously xmas eve is a special time so a LBD is a good choice. There are also lots about - I saw some on the next website that were not very expensive.
And have just received an email from them saying that sorry but my booking was lost or some crap and now cannot go . This was my last thing to do on my London List before I left for good. Damn you Ritz!!
Honestly, go back to them and say what you had planned and why (ie: leaving the country). Then ask them why the most celebrated hotel in the world cannot sort this out?
We had similar when they told us we could not bring our DDs (3 and 1). DH told them in no uncertain terms that he had booked and they needed to find a way to accomodate us (even if it was having our DDs on our laps). They relented and when we got there the staff were absolutelty brilliant and sorted us out just wonderfully on a table for 4
I really wanted to go as it is such an iconic thing to do. I want to do something special on my very last night in England (and London). Everyone I know will have gone away for the holidays. So if not tea, what should I do on my last night?
