Baby Needs a New Pair of Shoes

Do you remember Dorothy’s Ruby Red Slippers from the Wizard of Oz?

Dorothy's Red Slippers from the Wizard of Oz

When I was a little girl I loved the movie, dreamed about meeting The Great Oz and wanted Ruby Slippers. The shoes could repel the Wicked Witch of the West’s touch and teleport the user to any location by just clicking the heels together. One of the main takeaways from the movie was Dorothy chanting, “There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home.”

Wouldn’t it be great to have a pair of shoes like that for your child?

Well, when the baby needs a new pair of shoes for a special date, mama has to go shopping!

Let me show you what we found.

Chic Boutique
A bit too sexy for my 16 year old .

She said, “I don’t really want a buckle.”

“Oh Mom. No. Those are hooker shoes.”
Hmmmm. I like those shoes.
I think I’ll keep that to myself.

The studs are great for jeans,
but not for a formal black dress.

Bruce Gray sculptor
Not a real shoe.
What is that man wearing on his feet?
Oh my gosh…his toenails are painted!

Well, she decided on a pair that mama found…definitely a pair of Ruby Red Slippers.

I have to say that they look a bit more sexy than Dorothy’s shoes, but maybe if the heels are clicked together the shoes will bring the baby home!

Gianni Bini Red Shoes

Do you want to see my Ruby Red Shoes, I mean Slippers?

My feet revolted.

They picketed against me and I had to concede.

The only Ruby Red Slippers my feet will allow me to have are…


for my ears.

Where’s the The Great Oz?

I need to ask him something.

Dropping by via Yaya. I love red shoes but it's been ages since I've attempted to cram my sausages into a pair of heels. I'm happy just to see them in pictures.

My ankles and back hurt just looking at those heals. I can just imagine how much more they'd hurt if I actually put them on and tried to walk in them. Youch! 🙂

I love red shoes, as a matter of fact, I'm wearing a pair today! Minus the heels! What we use to call "ballerina" style, flats with no heel. Don't you just love the special shopping events with your daughter? Of course, mine would shop and shop till I would say, "unless you find what you want, we're going home!" Now she's 40 and lives in Oklahoma! Great post, it was fun!

I like the ones you liked, too, but wouldn't wear them for love or money… (I liked most of them, actually…) Love the ones she chose! The squared toe is cool!

What a great post! I love the Wizard of Oz and I those red shoes. (I want the Gianni Bini shoes the most out of all those! Some of the heels on those would cause me to injure myself!)

I have to agree with Alyssa, those ForPlay stilettos do look like hooker shoes, ha ha! I love the pair she got! have a good time at the ball Cinderella!

Red shoes, red purse, red lips. I love it!


10 Helen McGinn October 30, 2009 at 11:09 pm

Oh, now I want those shoes! They are lovely and totally what I would pick. I never got my Dorothy shoes as a kid…. :O(

Beautiful shoes; but definitely for when you won't be on your feet walking much


12 Yaya October 30, 2009 at 11:44 pm

Oooooh! Great red shoes! I mean, they're no orange shoes or anything, but a close second. 😉

Wait til you see pics of the 1 year old I nanny for on Halloween. She's gonna be Dorothy!!!


13 Vickie October 31, 2009 at 1:09 am

I love the shoes that you finally pick! Though I can't wear high heals. I don't know how to walk right in the shoes. I know…I should practice:)

Also I saw at Yaya's that your blogroll is very organized so I thought I would take a better look at it. You have me listed in the crafting roll!! Thank you!!

I do love shoes—and red ones especially—and it makes me realize that I could use another dressy pair….hmmmmm.

I love the shoes that she picked! Red heels are my faves 🙂

By the way, those aren't "hooker" heels, they're stripper heels. There's a difference!

Those are adorable! I love the square toe. Some people say that "red shoes are for children and whores" but I disagree. I have several pairs of red shoes that I adore. And I'm neither a child nor a whore. 🙂
