When I was younger I hated Doc Marten's... Really hated them. While all the other girls in school got to wear their chunky high heels, my mum forced me to wear my sensible, below ankle, black Docs. Comfortable though they were, they were not in any way stylish and did very little to improve the grey pinafore dress I wore as school uniform. My mum's argument that 'little girls should be running around the playground not clomping around in heels' only seemed to make my shoe situation even more tragic...
Fast forward about 12 years and here I am, still unable to walk confidently in heels and all nostalgic for the '90s... Obsessed with baggy denim, shaved heads and chunky English footwear, wishing I could find those old Docs and cripple my toes squeezing them on
now that the '90s is so much cooler than it was in the '90s!!...
I recently scored these excellent Doc specimens from a friend. Luckily they're my size, so no crippling involved. They've really become my default footwear these past few weeks...
- Straw hat- Cow
- Levi's Denim jacket- from a friend

What's your take on Doc's? Do you own any yourself??
Toodles to you bitches xx
