Dorothy‘s ruby slippers – is there a more iconic artefact from the world of movies?

Not in my opinion. So you can imagine how excited I am about the fact that the Victoria & Albert Museum will be offering a temporary home to that infamous pair of shoes from Saturday until 18th November in their Hollywood Costume exhibition.

And to mark the occasion there’s going to be a flash mob event on Sunday (21st), where the first 50 Dorothys to arrive will receive an exclusive V&A Hollywood stars tote bag and exhibition ticket!!

And that’s not all. The museum’s favourite Dorothy will win a goody bag including the exhibition book and their very own ruby slippers.

Their very own ruby slippers! Tempting isn’t it, until you realise that in order to win your ruby slippers you’ll have to already be wearing some…? Hmm.

But, that aside, how much fun does this sound? I have no doubt that there will be  plenty of wannabe Dorothys rising bright and early to follow the yellow brick road (aka the Circle Line) in their gingham and bunches to home in on this unique opportunity.

Not me though, I’ll just be popping along as an observer. Yeah, you’re right, I am a coward! I haven’t any courage at all. I even scare myself 😉
