I think me making a grungy type collage defeats the object of my argument when it comes Dr Martens. I really want some. Like really. My boyfriend & my mom are completely against it suggesting they are vile, because they stereotypically belong to ruthless racist skinheads from the 1980s (See This Is England) I want to prove that if I bought them I would not look like a grungy emo girl just to give my normal everyday outfits more of an edge! Literally my boyfriend will disown my if I buy these… so help me out and send me cool photos of you all rocking these beauts to help change his mind haha!

Penso che mi fa un collage grungy tipo sconfitte l'oggetto del mio argomento, quando si tratta Dr Martens. Li voglio veramente. Il mio ragazzo e mia madre sono completamente contro di essa sembra che essi siano vili, perché appartengono a stereotipo spietato skinheads razzisti dal 1980 (vedi This Is England) Io voglio dimostrare che se li ho comprati non mi aspetto di una ragazza emo solo grungy di dare il mio abbigliamento normale quotidiana più di un bordo! Letteralmente il mio fidanzato lo rinnegherò il mio se compro queste ... in modo darmi una mano e mi mandi le foto cool di tutti voi a dondolo queste beauts per contribuire a cambiare la sua mente haha! (Scusate il mio italiano!)

i love docs, i found some beautiful vintage chesnut ones with embroidered detail and brass buckles, but with my short stumpy legs i would never be able to pull them off! get them, they add a sense of originality and edge to outfits. great collage and photos!

ADELE said...

I wish i had a pair of dr martens ! + i love the pics you choose :)

Julia M said...

Docs are amazing. I really really want a pair-missed out by 6p on ebay today! Have you considered the heeled ones as a compromise? They're pretty swell!

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Maybe you could use them in a really pretty outfit to prove to your loved ones how nice they can be =) In the late 90's, I was in middle school, and Doc Martins were all the rage. A good pair of docs with jeans, leather belt, and a button up: That was our prepsters.

I think Docs look great even with a nice floral dress to give the feminine look an edge. They're quite versatile.

haha love your reference to 'this is England'...after seeing that film I kind of get where your mum and BF are coming from; its scary !!

but of course they would look fab on a little cutie like you, and I'm sure when they see them on you, racist skinheads will be the last thing on their mind,obv. ;)
so I vote you should defs get some, and do a post asap ;)

Oh and, I love Heidi; my mum used to read it to me a lonng time ago :)

talk soon xxx


MON CHERI !

marie said...

I loooove Doc Martens! I have a knockoff pair from forever 21 and they are lame compared to the real deal. I'm totally rooting for you to get a pair, they seriously go with everything! <3

Luxi said...

you should get them, they make every outfit that bit more cool and are so comfy and last for years! I want a white pair,,,but my black ones are staple. I need to photograph them, I just gave them some purple laces :)

Pop Champagne said...

what?! really?! grundgy is in it's too bad your mom and bf can't get pass the stereotypes. Tell them to watch Gossip Girl haha they make jenny humphrey look so grundgy-sexy!

Kb said...

I say, get them! They look so great with floral dresses or cut-off shorts and you will hardly notice they're Docs. They just become a part of you. I want a new colour once I get back to the UK, maybe grey, navy or cherry red.

Da quanto tempo hai iniziato a studiarlo?

ediot said...

magnificent collage! im so impressed love! and i used docs so much in high school- but then i got tired of them. im back to loving it again- especially with cute summer dresses. wish you a great week darling

Keith said...

I love Docs. I had a pair years ago. Don't think I've got any pics of me with them though. I hope you are able to get a pair. They are so cool.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Gorgeous collage! Such fabulous finds! xoxo

Winnie said...

You should definitely get some! I don't own any because they're not my style....but I think they look awesome on people who do own them!

Karoline said...

LOVE Docs!

Claire said...

You really are the queen of the collage. I love this. Doc Martens are so not skinhead-esque anymore!! Certainly not if you wear them the right way.... ok if you team them with a bomber jacket with a plaid lining you might get a few hostile looks, but seriously, they're cool. I don't have any unfortunately so I can't send any photos, but use my verbal assurances to back your case nonetheless haha! And these boots will last you a lifetime! If nothing else, play the practicality card ;)

notjustmedical said...

Oh no I love me a bit of Doc Martens as well but didn't even think of the racist connotations! You could get other lace-up boots?

love this post xxxx

Ashley said...

Oh no, Docs are awesome!! How can your BF and mom be so against them? I bought a pair of red ones off of ebay once, and looooooved them, but they were too big - I'm definitely wanting to buy another pair though. They're so comfortable too!

I just stumbled across your blog and I must say, I love it!

Your have amazing syle! :)

Love this collage you made, very creative.

Annie Spandex said...

Do it! I wear mine all the time. They've lasted FOREVER. They're associated with rock by now. No one will think you're a skinhead. xx

Brooke said...

I wore them all the time in middle school. I should dig through my old crap and see if they're anywhere to be found. I was the opposite of a grungy emo girl/skinhead, so I think you could definitely make them work. Then again, I mostly wore them with a private school uniform. Style FAIL. Haha.

Josie said...

I wanted Docs so badly in the 90s... When I was all of 8 years old, haha. I'm warming to them, though!

eliza said...

oohh my! So so so sorry I haven't been around!! just checked in and what do I find but an awesome new collage :) yay!

I hear what you're saying..but maybe remind your fam that the style and shoe has been coopted by pop culture and doesn't have the same connotation anymore.

...also, if you go a little digging you'll find that skinheads weren't always haters. There were in fact black skinheads back in the day! the 'culture' of skinheads has since shifted into a seriously haneous little gathering of racists,...but that wasn't the original point of the social community at all.

Maurice said...

I do not think you could change your boyfriend & mother's mind. You should just buy them, and then they would see how cool they really are. My girlfriend was all like "they are so tall, you are not going to wear them...", and now I have a black & a oxblood, from the vintage collection. They are awesome, my girlfriend liked them so much she's buying me a third pair, in brown.
Just be sure you are not buying some style/color that you will get tired of. Get some basic boot, like 8 eyelets in black, red or brown, since its easier to pull them off and its such a durable pair of boots. If you want my opinion, the new Pascal boots in the official site in brown look gorgeous, they sould be arriving at the online store at any momment now. Also, take a look at lookbook.nu. The girls looks so great, pairing their Docs with shorts, skirts, dresses... Everything.
Sorry for my bad, bad english, and greetings from Brazil.

Maurice said...

Also, to avoid the skinhead look, do not lace them tight & straight.
