This week's literary inspiration is The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
Blue and white checked dresses - so smart of you to dress in munchkin and good witch colors - along with magical silver shoes will make you quite the fashionista on your way to the Emerald City. (Fact: the original shoes were silver, they were changed to ruby red in the 1939 movie because they would show up better on screen! Did I just wrench your world apart with the true color of the shoes and now your life is meaningless because all this time it's been a lie? Well um sorry, but I included some red sparkly nail polish called Ruby Slipper to ease your suffering.) Follow the yellow brick road with your trusty dog, Toto, and a picnic basket to carry food in. Just make sure you watch out for fields of poppies that put you to sleep, and always keep a pail of water on hand to melt evil witches!
