Shoe Love - Platforms and Wedges

Many of you either absolutely or "most ardently" hate chunky shoes..I have been a flat platform lover even when I was a pre-teen...and I have been obsessing over creepers since last year. If I could I would buy one immediately.. I have yet to debut a new pair of black platforms that I got recently.
Platforms never really went away, they kind of fall out of fashion for a while but they keep coming back. The flat platforms have more or less uniformly thick soles whereas wedges have a sort of narrow portion (like a wedge!) and that's what makes an already out of balance person like me fall down and twist their ankle (*cough*happened last month..still afraid to step out on heels*cough*)..I have tripped countless number of times in my life. My knees are testimonies to that. Once I ripped my jeans at the knees..once I bruised both knees and palms ... aren't I the epitome of grace?
Many people confuse platforms and wedges. While shoes with wedge heels may have platform soles, the two features do not always appear together. When they do, they're considered "platform wedges."Wedge heels were introduced by Salvatore Ferragamo introduced wedges in the 1935..(platforms have been around since ancient times fyi).

Style Inspiration - Through The Decades

Life always seems simpler when you were a kid. I have loved something from every decade in terms of fashion, culture or music.. My least favourite decade for some reason was the 50's till I discovered the counter cultures of that time. For me the 30's were a transition from 20's to the 40's. The economic slump had brought in a lot of restraint in clothing as well. An element of rebel and/or free spirit is all that is needed to please me. Here are some photos that represent that.

60's-time for the sexual revolution-twiggy-gotta try this soon,have been thinking for years

1970's-80's glam rock icon David Bowie in an androgynous was different from the androgyny we see today

Love the vintage-y 90's feel

The horror punk inspired dark vibe is so cool here
Right now there's a major revival going on when it comes to our clothes. The kind of music we listen to, the shows and movies we watch influence us in a major way. What you wear is the easiest way to let someone know who you are or at least give them a glimpse of that. I was too busy running around in my sneakers and flat platforms and raising extra hell for my mom throughout the 90's and 2000's (Y2k, that didn't sounded odd to me then also).. The anti fashion era is what I grew up seeing, loose grungy attire and attitude is what I was mostly around. And the TV shows back then were so awesome. Now most of them are unwatchable. I also wore these rubber sandals with ankle straps and loved them to pieces.
Which is your favourite decade and why?

And here's a parting photo..found it funny..
