The expression ‘puttin on the Ritz’ was inspired by the opulent Ritz Hotel, meaning to dress very fashionably. It is a popular song written by Irving Berlin in 1929, introduced in song by Harry Richman for the 1930 movie Puttin’ On the Ritz! The song has been performed by many through the years and has been used in several movies, including Young Frankenstein. The last major revival of the song was by Taco released as a synthesized pop version in 1983 and includes a tap solo in the middle to honor the great Fred Astaire.
Whether or not you dress casually or ‘very fashionably’ this necklace is comfortable and fun to wear.
