There's no place like home... Fashions from the Wizard of Oz.


We had a lovely trip with wonderful friends in Merida, Mexico where we saw the enchanted Yellow City of Izamal, the Mayan ruins of Uxmal & swam in a Cenote (pronounced cey-NO-tays and derived from a Mayan word for "well"), but there's no place like home and we're so happy to be back with our pups!!!

Speaking of enchanted, yellow and missing home while having a wonderful adventure...

I just put together a quick fashion Friday featuring the fashions inspired by the Wizard of Oz.

The costumes from the original movie were designed by the iconic Hollywood designer of the 30's & 40's, Adrian (I should do a Fashion Friday soon just dedicated to the work of Adrian!!)

Billie Burke as Glenda in the original packing an amazing amount of tulle under that enormous circle skirt designed by Adrian.

Costume designer Susan Hilferty and her Tony Award-winning costume designs for the Broadway hit Wicked

More from Wicked and Susan Hilferty who tried to use every shade of Green imaginable.

I could not leave out the talented character Actor Margaret Brainard Hamilton as the original Wicked Witch
