Having had polio as a child, Frida liked to hide her legs. She wore long full skirts to hide her very thin right leg. The fashion at the time was for women to wear figure-hugging outfits but Frida dressed for her own sense of style and around her bodies needs. No one should ever be a slave to fashion and Frida never was… she was a trailblazer ♥ She was often laughed at by local women as her sense of style was way out there for it’s time and place but she never held back and continued to challenge fashion at home and away.
