See? See How It Could Have Been?

August 18th, 2011 by Selise

I braved my Docs again yesterday. I love them! I do! They just happen to give me monster blisters.

But I’ve conferred with fellow Doc owners and the general consensus is to “suck it up” for a month of blisters and bleeding (this never happened with my other pair) and you’ll be rewarded with happy days forever.

I can do this!

Besides, I want to wear them to an engagement party on Saturday (you best believe I’m rocking the floral dress and Doc Marten combo) and I figured I should do a little more breaking in before then.

So, remember how I said I’ve wanted Cherry Red Doc Martens for, like, my whole life? Well I decided yesterday to re-enact an outfit I would have worn in high school, if I’d had these wonderful shoes.

Totally cool, right? I know. I definitely would have wanted to hang out with me.

Now to re-enact one with torn jeans, flannel and a Kurt Cobain shirt.

Hmmm…perhaps the floral dress and Docs combo for the engagement party just got bumped…

    Docs are a bitch to break in. I swear that my ankles are actually permanently scarred from years of breaking them in.

    I would have totally hung out with you at school. We would have been two peas in a pod πŸ™‚
