Dr. martens

10/19/11





Old Navy denim jacket, Sans Souci floral dress, Dr. Marten 'Kimora' boots, Melie Bianco tote, T+J Designs necklace

Aren't these boots pretty sweet? They've got that Doc Marten badass look going on but with an added heel (score!) to fem things up... plus they are a cinch to walk in since they're a part of the 'AirWair' collection. I've always wanted the original Docs in cherry but because I'm not yet over 5'7" (not EVER is more like it, who am I kidding), I try to stray from boots that rise above the ankle with no heel. These babies, however, are good as gold, adding a few extra inches while creating the illusion that I'm wearing regular Doc Martens. Nice.

Naturally, I paired these tougher-looking shoes with a girly, floral dress. I mentioned this dress back in August (I think), saying that it was my favorite cut-out dress - still love it just as much, and as you can see, I'm transitioning into LA-autumn with it. Really not much transitioning being done if you ask me.

P.S. I want to do something drastic to my virgin hair (chop, color, perm?). It's getting to be a hassle when I have to wait forever for my hair to dry because it's so long, or when it's almost impossible to style it because it's weighed down and falls flat most of the time. Thank goodness I have the HANAair dryer from Misikko to help me out a bit. I am stubborn and usually detest hair dryers but this one is a dream... dries fast and doesn't burn my hair at all.

great look! Love your dress!

Lisa said...

Love the boots, and the dress is so pretty! As for your hair... wow. It's so beautiful! But I can understand when you say that you want to do something with it, I used to have long hair as well but I chopped it off a couple weeks ago. So glad I did, it dries very quick and it's so much easier to handle! So maybe you could try a long bob haircut? I think it would look so lovely on you!

Love, Lisa

If you're hesitant about it, I'd advice you do a different hairstyle first, before you do a perm or different haircolour. I'd go a little bit over your shoulders. Maybe a long Bob hairstyle would be pretty cool on you. You have the right face for it. I wish I could pull that off. You can look at my hair on my blog if you want.. and if you want any advice please feel free to ask.. use to have the same kind of hair like you!

nice mix! You´re very pretty and your hair too, so natural! Maybe i would cut them up to the shoulders and style them in a "harder" way.

You look particularly pretty in this post for some reason. Loving the outfit, those shoes are really beautiful. The leather looks so smooth!

thereafterish said...

I love that these are Doc Martens without the bulky, boyish look!

You still have that tough and edgy look to juxtapose against the feminine shapes and colors of the rest of your ensemble.

I love how effortless this entire outfit is.

I don't want to see you chop your gorgeous hair! It's so beautiful! (But I love long hair, so I guess this is all bias speaking; besides, I know you'll look great no matter what you do to it.)

Great look, though, and you're right about the heal being the perfect addition to feminizing.

Alice /// VESTIGIAL WINGS said...

wow, I can't believe these are Docs! i wonder if they're as "tough" as the regular 1460s? They look much more delicate. I totally want a pair.

Coco :-) said...

They really are Dr. Martens! I want a pair. Like seriously I will hunt for them. So glad I found your site from chictopia :-) Will follow you here now. You are amazing :-)

Love your hair!

Sydney said...

no, no! dont do anything to your hair
your hair is gorgeous. if you perm and all that, its quality might change! :((

I suggest a cut. If a color or perm doesn't look good, you either have to wait or cause more damage to your hair to fix it. At least with a cut, it's easier to fix. Just don't go too short. I think something angled with little layering and no bangs. You have really pretty features, and I think that would work really well for you.
