To thigh, or not to thigh...

There is something to be said for the new Autumn/Winter 2010 trend of the elusive 'Thigh High Boot'. Ever since Willow sent her thigh high lace ups down the runway in 2008 and Isabel Marant created those amazing suede thigh high boots for the Fall/Winter 2009-2010 collection they have been the 'must have trend' for our coming winter season this year.
But as i sit and write this post i wonder... Should this trend be only for the models and girls with the stick thin/chicken legs or can it be something accessible to all? And then there is the issue of what to wear with them? It is something one must consider very carefully, as no matter how fabulous the trend we must be conscious of the 'tacky factor'.
I gave in and have just bought a pair myself and I feel personally the jury is still out on whether i can pull them off with all the attitude they require... But hey... here's to trying!
