I was super lucky to be invited to the Dr Martens, Bristol to sneak a peak at the new AW14 collection, and to be offer the chance to chose my fav pair to take home. Having never stepped foot in a pair of Dr Martens before, (but been on my wish list for some time) I can’t tell you how exciting this was for me.
The Bristol store is small but perfectly packaged, with retro vibes streaming out the front door. It’s a place I instantly felt at home in and was cooing over several pairs of their awesome range. Of course naturally there’s the classic 1460 in patent pink that I have lusted over for a long time that I was drawn to instantly (who doesn’t love a bit of patent pink?). Then there was the iridescent snake skin style which I also couldn’t help cop a feel of.
Mini records (which, sorry, I’m not old enough to know the correct terminology for) were playing on the branded duke box, as I was greeted by the lovely manager, Kat, who naturally rocked her own pair of DMs along with several tattoos and an oober cool personal style. She was really helpful in telling me about the new range and showing me around the store, she even helped me take some photos (and I’m not the easiest person to take photos for!).
I was torn between the tattooed Mary Jane, but in the end I went for the Amilitas with floral ribbon laces and a dark floral inside. The moment I put my foot in these boots, it was like I was walking on cloud 9. They are with out a doubt the most comfortable thing I have ever put my foot in (and in have put my foot in
it a lot!) I wanted to wear them to bed last night. They will not be leaving my foot for a very long time. I can’t wait to do a proper outfit post with them, I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot of my little amilitas in the near future!
Huge thanks to Dr Martens for making this post possible.
