Dreaming Of: Ruby Slippers

So, one of the illustrations I'm currently working on is for invitations and collateral for an auction supporting a local school. 


The theme is The Wizard of Oz. It's been fun finding inspiration. Unfortunately, it means I have red shoes on the brain!

All of  sudden, I'm craving these Balenciaga Ruby Slippers for fall.

Nothing helps you stand out in a crowd better than a pair of red shoes.

I think they need to be added to my list of things you can never have too much of...

They give a kick to your confidence...

How 'bout you, would you follow a yellow brick road to find the perfect pair of ruby slippers?


  1. When I was three, I threw a temper tantrum at the mall because I wanted a pair of glittery ruby red slippers. Maybe it's time I finally get a pair!

  2. I am in love with the first image...what a cute invitation that would be...

  3. Such a beautiful selection of shoes here. I love the Wizard of Oz theme!
    Have a great day.

  4. The first image took me back and then what a fun post that follows! First, my husband is from Kansas and therefore we have heard every reference known to man that has to do with The Wizard of Oz! Fun!!

    Now, red shoes go back to my childhood when my grandmother gave me a pair of red patent zip up boots. I loved them then....but wow they would be cool now. I have a favorite pair of red shoes that will be coming out this fall. Though I have a huge shoe crush on that last pair!
