Six-year-old Eloise lives on the top floor of The Plaza Hotel with her Nanny and her dog, Weenie. Normally, Eloise likes to dress up her dog, but Nanny says it’s Eloise's turn. Eloise needs a hat. First she tries on the lamp shade, but Nanny does not approve. Eloise tries on the hats of the chef, room service, the bell captain, and even the hat of a lady in the lobby! Finally, Nanny surprises her with a beautiful bonnet and Eloise approves!
