Red shoes to oz around for the yellow brick road

Tell me that this woman’s head isn’t made of straws! She actually made me traipsed around looking for some yellow brick road! Just because I’m a pair of red shoes and her favorite story is Wizard of Oz? I may look dainty but I hardly look like Dorothy’s red shoes! Her shoes were flat for goodness sake! How could she have skipped along the yellow brick road in high heels? Seriously. I wished she had chosen my black counterpart. That would have saved me from all the agony because after all the roaming, the closest I found were gray cement roads with double yellow lines!

Thank goodness though that there were benches waiting for me to take five at strategic corners. But she didn’t bring me any snacks. All the time that I was plodding along, I thought she brought me some food in that red lunch box. Turned out, it was no lunch box but a box purse that contained no food but only her barangs. At that moment, I really wished I were some magical red shoes and I would have been able to slip off her feet to give her head two hard knocks!

But as I tried to recollect my tracks now, I remember coming across a Tin Man with no heart and a Cowardly Lion who couldn’t roar. I certainly missed the Scarecrow with no brain though; maybe he was hiding from me? But wait a minute. Where was Toto? (Answer: in the draw machine)

So I made the silly woman follow the double yellow lines and she happily sauntered along. She came by this red door and took it upon herself that it was where the Wizard resides. Didn’t she read the story? The Wizard of Oz stays in the Emerald City. At the least, the door should be green!

Okay, for those who like to know, I’m part of the Pierre Cardin family. Yeah, they’re always known for their comfort but never their designs. I happen to be part of the new collection that look more trendy and interesting. Don’t I go well with her retro looking dress? It’s a handmade piece from Linaline’s shop and I really like the color.

    I love your red shoes! Especially the strappy part. Love the Peter pan collar on your dress. Vintage and very girlish feel.

    Hi Sesame, you look elegant. You probably don’t know me but I have known about your blog for a few years now. I’ve just given you a Sunshine Award on my blog.

      Thank you Elaine. :) I was surprised the colors of those two turned out to complement each other.

    • sesame says

      Yeah, I love the shoes especially cos this is my fave brand. I usually get black shoes but I just had to get these.

        Haha, I used to until my toes got completely bent out of shape. Now, no more heels ever. It’s a long stretch from the days when I’d wear 4 to 5 inch high heels or even platform shoes and where I’d scoff at flat shoes. Ahh… the days of being young and foolish. =)Should see a podiatrist but that will have to wait. Got too many problems piling up. πŸ˜›

          4 to 5 inch heels are high! I could never wear those as they can create back problems for me.

    May I know what makeup are you using for these pics? Your skin looks flawless, non-cakey type.

      I used the Ecobeau BB Cream Plus to conceal some of the blemishes and undereye area and then the Clarins Hydra-Luminous Powder Foundation I reviewed recently. I think this foundation looks very good under bright lights or day light.

      • Stella says

        I see.

        Meaning that you use sunblock under your Ecobeau BB Cream Plus?

        Any review of your BB Cream? πŸ˜‰

        • sesame says

          Yes, I use Marie Veronique Organics Face Screen Plus under the BB cream. I did a brief review on the BB Cream here:

          Just to clarify, I didn’t use the BB cream on my whole face but as a concealer on some spots and undereye.
