Silver Screen Style: Get Your Own Ruby Slippers!


On one unsuspecting Saturday night, I found myself planted in front of the tube watching Wizard of Oz with my best friend, Rosie.  Of course, I can’t get over Dorothy’s signature ruby slippers.  I have plenty of red high heels, but none are quite as classic & adorable as the original Salvatore Ferragamo designed shoes for the movie.

I’ve recently posted a lot about shoes & even dedicated a whole Color Me Style post to Rosie (clicky here), but there’s really no such thing as too many red shoes!

Take a look at these shoes which range in price from $24.50 – $99.00, but are totally worth the investment if you’re looking to add some glimmering polish to the upcoming holiday season & for any smashing LBD ensemble.  My favorites by far are the glittery mary jane platform pumps ($30.00) from Charlotte Russe.  The store is currently having a sale where you can buy shoes BOGO $15.00.  That’s a good deal! You can find the sparkle toe pumps ($99.00) @Victoria’s Secret, or go for some all-over twinkle with the Promiscuous ‘Ryan’ pumps ($24.50) from 6PM.

While Dorothy’s shoes weren’t peep toes, I’ve also selected the ‘Jeana’ knot slingbacks ($27.99) in red satin, which add an old Hollywood glamour to any look, from Payless.  They’re also available in black & wide width, just in case the red isn’t for you.  I’m also a big fan of patent leather, so these Romantic Soles ‘Peony’ pumps ($44.50) sold @Zappos are the perfect fit for a polka-dotted dress in the summer, or with heavier textures this season like tweed or a chunky knit dress.  Speaking of texture, @Nine West, the ‘Galactica’ suede pumps ($69.30) have a little bit more edge with gold embellishments around the platform.

  1. I had to laugh when I read this blog! When I went to Party City for my Halloween accessories, they were selling ruby slippers (aka red rhinestone covered stilettos). I have been contemplating going back in to buy them. Lol
    You have read my fashion mind…
