Way back in 1978, I saw the most awesome boots I had ever seen in the window of a shop in the Cookeville Mall. I was 19 years old and had just gotten my first real job. I wanted those boots more than anything else in the world. So, I saved my money and finally had enough to buy those cool platform boots. Now I could dress just like Stevie Nicks, my music idol of the time. Time passed and I got older, fashion changed and the boots went into a bag in the closet, never to be seen again. A few days ago the boots came out of the bag in the closet and I put them on for the first time in a long time. I could hardly stand up in them. I thought to myself, how in the heck did you ever wear these things? The boots will find a new home with my niece, Sarah, who loves retro clothes and shoes. I hope she enjoys wearing these as much I did way back when.
