Earlier this year, I went to the touring stage production of The Wizard of Oz at ASU Gammage and absolutely loved it. I was listening to the music again and it reminded me of how much I loved it! The stage production of The Wizard of Oz brings an entirely new feel to the movie we all know and love. The show features classic songs like “Over the Rainbow” and “If I Only Had a Brain”, but also brings in new songs like “Nobody Understands Me” and “Red Shoes Blues.” Andrew Lloyd Webber, the producer, has turned out numerous hits before, such as the Phantom of the Opera, Cats and Evita. Danielle Wade (Dorothy) was the winner of the CBC reality show “Over the Rainbow,” which earned her the role of Dorothy in the North American premiere of Wizard of Oz.
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking The Wizard of Oz may be Dorothy’s ruby slippers? Her iconic blue gingham dress? Glinda’s pink gown? The Emerald City? There are actually so many aspects of fashion found in the show. From crazy sets to costumes to general ideas; the show is full of inspiration.
This dress (Modcloth, $137.99) is the perfect mature Dorothy dress. Yes, she is known for her gingham, but this dress brings a subtlety to the classic Dorothy; making the outfit more reminiscent than costume-y. The sparkly shoes (Delias, $19.90) are a must. How can you channel your inner Dorothy without some fabulous ruby slippers? At $19.90 they are a steal, too! Then, there’s Todo’s basket (ebay, $14.99) to pull everything together. Don’t forget the braids, too!
Who can talk about Wizard of Oz without mentioning the Emerald City or the yellow brick road? This is my refined take on them. This beautiful emerald dress (Modcloth) could be styled up or down, which is what I love. For this look, styling it up with some gold heels (Modcloth, $29.99) to channel the yellow brick road is so cute. Add am emerald statement necklace (humble chic, $48.00)
Had to share these couple of looks I pulled together from my inspiration. Have you had the chance to see Wizard of Oz on stage yet?
