Click Your Heels and Cough Up $3 Million For Dorothy's Ruby Slippers

We're guessing that the Wizard of Oz himself may not have enough dough to bid on Dorothy's infamous ruby slippers. This December, the one-and-only red glitter shoes from 1939's The Wizard of Oz will go up for auction. (Not to be confused with Miu Miu glitter booties, but those may cost you a pretty penny, as well.) Believed to have been worn by Judy Garland herself, the shoes are up for grabs as of December 16, as part of a Hollywood Memorabilia sale. The pair was found by a costume-department worker on the MGM lot in the early 1970's, and in primo-vintage condition to boot. You might need more than a Christmas bonus to afford this piece of cinematic fashion history, as they are expected to fetch between $2 and $3 million. No, you're not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy.
