Ruby Slippers

On Saturday evening I went to Seattle's McCaw Hall to see my friend perform in the Seattle Men's Chorus, "Singing... in the Rain" show, with special guest Debbie Reynolds. The performance showcased songs from the golden age of Hollywood musicals, and included some fantastic "choral-ography" and tap dancing!

One of my favorites was the classic tribute to Judy Garland, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," sung beautifully by Debbie, who, all the while, glamourously paraded around the stage in a floor-length red sparkly dress.

I hadn't thought back to her performance until today when a friend of mine mentioned that her next item she plans on buying will be some shiny red flats. The song immediately popped back into my head!

Take a look at these fun twists on the famous, magical slippers. Much more appropriate for everyday wear, I must say. They're a fantastic transitional piece from winter to spring. Also, the patent leather texture is perfect for sudden springtime downpours!
