Shoes - Dr.Martens
I can't believe it's taken me this long to get me to get a pair of Dr.Martens. For someone who's as sartorially influenced by sub-cultures (that's the wanky way of saying awkward teenage goth btw) it's taken me 24 years to get a pair of these babies. And by pair I mean two. That's right, I'm a full on Dr.Martens convert. Quite frankly I'm kind of over buying shoes that fall apart the second I get caught in the rain and I don't fancy living in my wellies the second it gets a bit wet (see:this weekend.) Also there is something really appealing about something that's built to last. Dr.Martens are all about creating shoes for life - giving you after care instructions and saying they will maintain your boots. Now that's an investment. Also - let's face it, they are a total style classic. I've been alternating between these bad boys (which I got customised with my name, don't make fun - I don't think of it so much as narcissism, more like - the grown up equivalent of your mum writing your name on the inside of your jumper) and my GORGEOUS silver made in england leather pair I was gifted (I seriously want to cry any time I look at them. They are so beautiful.)
MIE sale has more than a little bit of the Bowie going on.) I basically got to spend an evening with some stellar company, listen to some fly tunes and go to a cheeky wee party and eat pizza (with 3 pairs of shoes and a dress under my arm.) Let's face it, Dr.Martens know how to throw a party.
So - Dr.Martens? Are you a fan? What do you make of their Stand For Something campaign? Also - black on black, too much? (The last question's a joke.)
You can Dr Martens on twitter, instagram & facebook. Also - there is some sweet Agy goodies in the sale. JUST SAYING.
