I thought it was stupid then and even more stupid now but if you think it makes you look good, have at it.

well said, I agree, go for it.

This is an example of how it can look fine and simple

Let alone the context, which is bizzarre, lol. They are decorative, to me.

This will the third time around it was fashion in the late 40's 50's except the shoes were not as high. This look must surely be some mans fantasy, why does everyone want to look like a teenager, i dread to think about some of the sights we might see out there if it catches on again hopefully as someone suggested it is already dead.

This goes a lot further back than the 1980's ladies!



The only thing necessary to pull the look off is a 'well-turned' ankle (slim ankle).

If you have an elephant/kankle type situation--> DO NOT do it. Major turn off.
