Dr Martens First & Forever campaign

12 Sep

I adore the Dr Marten’s ‘First and Forever’ campaign which invites people to share their first experience of Doc Martins. The video, featuring Agyness Deyn, is really beautiful and is based around Agy’s first heartbreak. 

Like most, I experienced my first pair at school, I can’t remember how old I was but I was probably about nine-ish. It was the 90s and they were all the rage. Though most of my peers went for the straight-laced and sensible shoe option, the punk/grudge trend of the time must have filtered through to me as I went for the boot version which I only laced up to the ankle with frayed laces and left the top part open. I loved those boots and in school, out of school and wherever I could. I can’t remember now, but I’m sure growing out of them was a hugely traumatic experience and probably resulted in a tantrum. 
Fast-forward about 20 years and DMs are as popular as they were when I was a kid, proof of the 20 year fashion rule! Today, there is such a huge choice of colours and details, Schuh has some fabulous exclusive, limited editions too.  I’ve been really tempted to get another pair but just overwhelmed by the choice. Do you remember Dr Martens from ‘the first time around’ and have you bought another pair? 


Schuh sandal discount!

26 Aug

To celebrate the Bank Holiday weekend, super shoe retailer Schuh have got a fabulous 15% discount on sandals, including sale items! All you need to do is enter Sandals15 at the checkout, hurry though the offer ends at midnight tomorrow. I know the weather has been pretty touch and go but a girl can never have too many sandals, if only for making the most of the brief moments of sunshine! Here are my favourite sandals from Schuh. 

Schuh flow gladiator sandals
You really can’t beat a pair of gladiator sandals. I really like the criss cross staps on these, it adds a bit of character and the zip at the back makes them a doddle to get on and off. They were originally £45 but have been redeuced to £14.99…plus you get an extra 15% of. 

Red or Dead Freya Sandals
These sandals are more like cut out shoes, they look really distinctive and would look great with a flowery tea dress or dressed down with shorts and a graphic tee. They’re £50. 

What a cheery pair of yellow sandals! These quirky shoes have a real vintage vibe and, being Hush Puppies, they are going to be mega comfy so you can hop, skip and jump around all day. Or just walk! These are another sale steal pair, they were originally £52 but have been reduced to £34.99. 

If flip flops are a little too plain but gladiator sandals aren’t pretty enough, these gold sandals will be perfect for you. The thin straps give them a dainty look while the gold colour gives them a bit of a luxe feel. These sandals are also in the sale, they were originally £39.99 and have gone down to £24.99.
