Inspiration: Betty Caltroux and Thigh High Boots


I'm currently reading The Beautiful Fall:  Fashion, Genius, and Glorious Excess in 1970s Paris by Alicia Drake.  It's a really captivating read and so far has shown a lot of the life of Yves St Laurent and his circle of friends  I was really interested in Betty Caltroux when he met her so I looked into her more and was so excited by her look.  What really made me stop was this safari style mini dress with the most amazing over the knee leather boots.  I've wanted a pair for while but this took it over the top.  I always love when Rachel Zoe wears them and I recently saw this photo of Vogue's style assistant Emma Morrison wearing an amazing pair and looking great.  I'm officially obsessed and on the hunt for a great pair.
