made for each other: 21st century Dorothy Gale

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

My favorite movie of all time is 'The Wizard of Oz' and has been since I was 3 when I played it on repeat every day until I was in 1st Grade. Dorothy has a special place in my heart, and my affinity for her shoes have not only grown over the years, but has clearly followed me into adulthood.
I spotted these fantastic Rodarte for Opening Ceremony glitter pumps while in search for the amazing, new Opening Ceremony shoes that have been featured in their Fall RTW campaign and something just kept bringing me back to them (possibly the hope of whimsy returning to my wardrobe? The ridiculous price cut? In fulfillment of my almost 20 year old dream of being Dorothy?). I immediately thought of the amazing, vibrant blue gingham Old Navy dress that had recently got away and immediately began a search for its replacement to pair with these killer platforms
This amazing Altuzarra for J.Crew dress not only evokes my pigtailed heroine, but does so in such a grown up, bombshell way that is less Dorothy and more Marilyn. The dress has an air of sophistication and sexy, while the pumps give it that added dose of fun and fancifulness that move the look in an entirely different direction toward confidence. What can I say? Some things are meant to be! Now if only had to click my heels a few times to get these pieces in my closet!
