Lucy in the Sky With Rubies
Today, I took down the Wizard of Oz exhibit at work.
The last item I removed were the cutest, tiniest shoes I’ve ever seen.
These tiny (a child’s size 9) reminded of what shoes I really, really, really, really want.
And I realized I was wearing my very own ruby slippers today! (it was a total coincidence, really)
They are “Nuncio” from Nine West. Like my polka-dot heels, these were majorly on sale and I picked them up for around $30 last year. This exact style is still available for purchase, but not in the ruby color (what, do you think I’d tell you if it was??)
On a side note, a charity auction is being held to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the release of The Wizard Of Oz. What’s being auctioned off, you ask?
Why, shoes of course!
Ruby Slippers, to be exact. Designed by Alberta Ferretti, Betsey Johnson, Diane von Furstenberg, and Jimmy Choo…just to name a few.
If anyone would like to permanently be on my good side, you can bid for the Christian Louboutin‘s and give them to me.
I promise to give them a nice and loving home and let you visit them at Christmas each year.
The auction will benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation: EGPAF is a worldwide leader in the fight against pediatric AIDS, working in 17 countries to stop the pandemic and help those already infected with HIV.
