Patience is a virtue.

Dorothy’s dress

I noticed this first on BBC’s Spanish language news website Mundo, and then found it reported in English too. £300,000 or more accurately $480,000 is quite a bit to spend on a blue and white gingham pinafore dress; What is amazing though is that a similar dress from the tests for the same film sold for $910,000 last year.

It is easy to understand one of Marilyn Monroe’s or Audrey Hepburn’s dresses going for over half a million pounds, but a gingham dress? Was the purchaser a friend of Dorothy perhaps?
