The Doctor Is In00:00:00
Last Friday I attended the VIP launch of the new Dr Marten's store in Belfast.
I remember getting my first pair of docs at 11. My sister and I asked for a pair each for Christmas; she wanted plain old black but I had to have oxblood. Unfortunately, announcing my request a few days before Christmas left Santa with few options and I got an amazing pair of 18(!) hole oxblood boots. I've been smitten ever since.
I met up with my blogging better-half Ruth of Willow Lane and a few more of the lovely FABB ladies Rosanna and Carolyn and we made our way to the brand new shop. The entire store was crammed with local bloggers, stylists and personalities, enjoying food laid on by Love & Death Inc, artisan beer by Farmageddon and some rock from local band The Groundlings.

I was kindly gifted with the Jules double monk shoes - I chose them as they were that little bit different but still me. I'm breaking many, MANY cardinal rules here wearing them with black jeans but feck it, I was punk for one night (as punk as I will ever be). My entire outfit (shoes aside) is from Primark. I think this tartan shirt is my new favourite.
|I had my eye on the oxblood zip wallet but logic prevailed when I realised I couldn't fit all my cards in it|
|all the tartan scarves a boy could ever want...|
|leather braces - pair with a short sleeve shirt, rolled skinny jeans and a classic pair of docs for instant punk|
|I've fallen for this shirt and bomber combo - classic Brit style|
|more oxblood - seeing a pattern here?|
