New Yorkers, check out the Ruby Slipper Collection at Saks Fifth Avenue. Nineteen designers have reinterpreted Dorothy’s sparkly crimson pumps from The Wizard of Oz. Proceeds from the exhibit benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation, and perhaps if you click your heels enough times, the exhibit will come to a town near you!
For Angelenos on the prowl for sales, this week is proving to be an end-of-the-season bonanza.

On the other side of the Hollywood Hills, Rumor Boutique is offering steep discounts on brands like Walter and Joy Han. (Sherman Oaks, California, 818-981-4762).
Though the Warehouse Sale travels all across the country billing itself as an exclusive “denim sample sale,” this weekend (Saturday and Sunday) the nation’s largest denim sale organizer comes to downtown L.A.’s Convention Center.
