@Grivusangel -- We must be about the same age. I wanted some Candies too -- the kind with the chunky heel. I saved my money for about a year and finally got some. My mom wasn't crazy about the idea, either.
I wore them to school with my skinny jeans and I thought I was red hot and smokin'! Well, for about a month, anyway. I went to the movies with friends, stepped on a grate and turned my ankle. I literally fell off my shoes! It was so embarrassing and my mom didn't lose an opportunity to say, "I told you so" for the rest of the summer. It took me a while to live that one down.
