I remember when I bought my first pair of platforms... It was 8th grade. I couldn't get my hands off the Hecht's circular. Totally drooling over a pair of black suede platform sandals that HAD TO BE MINE! I showed them to my Mother and she warned me about going down that path... "They'll be out of style next season... just a fad." And, here I am, many years later, still compiling my collection. Too bad she didn't save hers! I would def rock every piece of her outfit below.
