The Wonderful Harrods of Oz
How did I miss this‽ In honor of the 70th anniversary of the Wizard of Oz (the film, not the book), Harrods underwent an Emerald City makeover. They killed the Wicked Witch of the East (who is apparently a giantess). Their Christmas windows are Oz-themed. (Sorry, the best pics are on a French blog. C'est dommage si vous ne lisez pas le français.) And they were running a Ruby Slipper Boudoir (second link from right in the video clip lineup) where shoe clerks dressed as Dorothy would fit you for your own ruby slippers. Sadly, they're sold out, so I'm guessing the Dorothies have clicked their heels and left the Harrods shoe department as well.
I have never wanted to be in London quite as desperately as I do right now. Sigh.
