Doctor, Doctor


After spending my morning drooling over Susie's post on the SS/11 Dr Marten's collection, I coincidentally now feel like I need a Doctor... A cold seems to have developed out of nowhere and I'm now feeling very soz for myself. I bought some First Defense stuff as I don't want to be a snotty wreck on Alex's birthday on Thursday, so fingers crossed this stuff works.

Even though they may or may not have cursed my health, I just had to share some of the SS/11 DM designs. Every season they seem to amaze me with their fresh variations on the stompy soled theme. View at your own risk...

Oh, you know which ones my favourites. When I first saw the leopard print brogues, my first response was OMFGZ, closely followed by FML that I have to wait until Spring to own them.

Not sure about the overly floral ones as I think they'll date pretty quickly, whereas leopard print is more of a lifestyle choice than a trend. For me, anyway! I also have a soft spot for the minty green brogues, but I think the fact it's one of my favourite nail polish shades is clouding my judgement. Coming to think of it, it is quite a nail art inspired collection! Floral, pastels, leopard print, zebra print, crackled... If I didn't know better I'd say Dr Marten himself could be a reader of this here blog!

Hope you're having a less germy day than me! I've got a busy day of cake-baking, last minute gift buying for Alex's bday, and housework tomorrow. Going to try and get a good night's sleep so I can try and recover!

  1. I actually really love the florals - funny as I'm usually a leopard print gal through and through, but in this case I think the dainty florals looks really smart with the DM shape.

  4. LOVE the leopard, baby pink and croc effect ones! So gorgeous! Don't think my little legs pull off the clumpiness of the normal boots I have though, let alone the shoes! We will have to see I guess :) x

  8. If leopard print is in the house, it's hard for me to notice anything else.

  9. I tend to gravitate towards anything leopard or stripy almost automatically, so the leopard pair instantly caught my eye. Love all of them actually.

  11. Omigod Doc Martens are the coolest things ever...I used to only associate them with Lourdes Leon and the '80s, but they have some really amazing styles!! And the whole look of wearing a pair of Doc's, well, your instantly the coolest kid around. I'm a new follower :) http://thearcenciel.blogspot.com/

    I like the leopard print ones too but really not 100% sold on enlarged leopard prints.

    Hope your cake baking is a success and you feel better asap!

  15. OMG, I die for those leopard print beauties. Need.

    I've had the beginnings of a cold for about a month. I just know that the minute I finish work for Christmas it's going to unleash itself on me, full force.

  16. I love all the brogue styles they're doing next season, but I think my heart needs some oxblood 1460s as my next investment pair!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh my! I NEED the leopard print beauties in my life, they are divine.

    I have a penchant for anything pastel so those mint and lilac brogues are just wonderful. Well done Dr Marten for revamping themselves!

  18. Oh dear, get better soon (: I really need to invest in some DM's. Why am I always skint?! Grr. I wanna get some traditional ones but those leopard print ones are crying out for some love!

  19. I love that Leopard is a lifestyle choice! I think I need to stay away from the site too otherwise some pastel ones might be winging their way to me! x

  24. They're doing the leopard print in full boots too, blogged about them a while ago. They are AMAZING. Here's hoping they're not too expensive... Love the loafers too. x

  25. I love the florals, but then again if it's floral I'm going to adore it.

    I really like Dr Marten's shoes. I have a battered old pair of cherry docs I've been wearing since I was 14; they're still my most comfy shoes and the best thing to have on under jeans. These look far prettier, though.

  26. Hope you feel better soon! I'm stuck with one too...
    Ohmy, those minty green ones; love them, quite like the florals too, but I've always been a sucker for floral prints...

  33. I've been eyeing up some second hand DMs on ebay for a few days now but I think I might have to save up my pennies for those leopard print beauties. Lol at 'leopard print is more of a lifestyle choice' - actually so true, leopard print clothes take up an unealthy amount of space in my wardrobe.

Awww hope Alex and you have a great time for his birthday and enjoy Christmas/ his birthday ...his bday is Christmas day isn't it.

  35. Hey great post. Thought I'm not sure I agree with you 100%. Keep em coming. Are you interested in having anyone guest post opposing views?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I really like the florals! But I agree that youd probs have to style them well so that theres a touch of irony or simply that you know theyre girly. I must say the leopards are my faves too! Hawt.
    Also like the pale blue loafers, yumz
