Frida’s focus on fashion did not diminish with her failing health. After her leg was amputated due to gangrene in 1953 when she was 46, 1 year before she died, she used a prosthetic leg and did so with this fabulous red lace up boot. She met the task of dealing with her now missing leg with an amazing sense of form, function, fashion and great style. If you have to deal with truly terrible obstacles in life… think of Frida and how she took on some super challenging life-changing shit with flair, colour and a great sense of fashion ♥
