Its no secret that I'm a Dr. Martens girl.
My first pair (aged 12) arrived with a history of their own, Scout boots passed down through family friends and arriving in a plastic bag, covered in mud.
As I brought those boots back to life a love affair blossomed into the one relationship that would stay constant for the next 28 years.
My old scout boots were followed by a pair of waxed brown shoes. I saved for months and months before traveling to London (by coach) to buy them from a little shop near Camden Market.
They became my trademark teenage style, teamed with vintage dresses and chunky ankle socks. those shoes really could tell the story of my life!
Now that I have daughters its all about the fluro DM's. Pink, Green and Biba would really like yellow but only if she can get a leather satchel to match.
If you are a true Dr. Martens fan, make sure you check out the bespoke pop up store at Dover Street Market (until the end of the month), where you can create your own custom boots in a range of leathers.
I'll leave you with the History of Dr. Martens, enjoy!
