Just click your heels together...

Maybe I watched The Wizard of Oz one too many times as a kid, but if there's one thing I can't ever resist, it's cherry red shoes. These divine Manolo Blahnik d'Orsay peep toes are no exception.

What was your favorite childhood movie, and do you think it's impacted your personal style? I'm wearing a blue gingham shirt as I write this, so I think it's safe to say Dorothy has affected mine!

  1. So cute! My sister and I love the Wizard of Oz...have you seen this Style Me Pretty shoot? I'm obsessed and I bet you'd love it too! http://bit.ly/lFrF8K
    My favorite movie was Beauty and the Beast...I don't think it's exactly affected my style, but I do love yellow and everything French, so maybe? :)
    Hope you're having a good week!

  13. those shoes are pure bliss. I think my fave film as a kid was the little mermaid. I always wanted to dye my hair red but I lack the balls to actually do it.

  19. A gingham shirt while typing this - I love that! There is only one word for these shoes - divine. My favorite movie was/is Dirty Dancing. I don't think it affected my personal style but I've never fallen out of love with Patrick Swayze so I guess that's something... ;)

  24. i loved and still love peter pan, i don't think it influenced my style but i was a tiny bit obsessed with pirates when the series began and i definitely wore lots of stripes, gold and weathered denim for a while.

  25. Eeee! My shoes for city hall are exactly this color. Wish they were Manolos, but we need the money to pay the photographer ;)

  26. You can never watch The Wizard of Oz too many times! It's my childhood faves too as well as Alice in Wonderland.

    Loving those cherry red pumps!

  27. Those shoes! Love!

    Ha! That's such a good question. I don't really know if I was influenced by one of my favorite childhood movies, in terms of style. I guess that would mean I'd be wanting to dress in poufy princess gowns all the time (which is soooo not the case!). However, I'm with you on the shoes. Since the ruby slippers, I have such a soft spot for any shoe that's red and glittery.
