I found this great little slideshow on a history of thigh high boots on The Cut: New York Magazine’s Fashion Blog, and I just had to share it. It’s really great!

–Can I just interject by saying how much I love this movie!?!! I have watched The Devil Wears Prada a countless amount of times and it really never gets old. I guess I can relate to it a bit too, the whole transformation into the world of fashion, wanting to work for a magazine bit…sigh…and this movie really made me love Anne Hathaway too. Shes really a fantastic actress…anyway, back to the list!
