Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz would have felt right at home with the weather we’ve been having here in Toronto as of late so it seemed fitting to have today’s Literature month post to be an outfit based on Frank L. Baum’s Wizard of Oz. We’ve had insane lightning storms, hurricane warnings and even a tiny little earthquake (which yes was small but 27 floors up in the air I really felt it…) Standing out on my balcony watching the lighting pour in I felt like any minute the wicked witch of the west would be flying by on her broom and a giant house about to land on her sister would be chasing at her heels.
As the weather has been getting more and more tumultuous we have been starting to see the first glimmers of fall. I love this gorgeous golden soda pop dress from Modcloth which is always my first go to dress when the weather starts to cool down. The colour of this dress felt like it was taken right off the yellow brick road and in my fantastic pair of bright ruby slippers and my trusty picnic basket I was all wrapped up in Dorothy-esque style. Yes, the traditional Dorothy style would be her plaid blue and white dress but I felt like this was a little more abstract and a lot more fun!
