Historic Perspective

One of my favorite parts of visiting the Met Museum, is to look at the portraits as well as the examples of historical apparel. However, even the museum can't keep everything out on display all the time and we can't go to the museum every day, sadly.

Lucky for us they have shared their pieces on line, and subject matter expert Manolo the ShoeBlogger, has created a lovely Pinterest board dedicated to shoes from throughout history sourced from all over the web.

And it's filled with surprising gems like these metallic thigh-hi can-can (or red light district???) boots from the turn of the century!

Make sure to view these historic gems and see if you can spot how the past is influencing the present.
