Since I was twelve I have had a secret obsession with Doc Martens. Yes you heard me, prissy, dainty, high-maintanence Rebecca has a fetish with the most fantastically chunky combat boots. Of course, in my tender and awkward middle school days I was FAR too self-conscious to rock the look without getting an eyebrow raise from the rest of my Abercrombie clad classmates. Now, on the other hand, I would wear them in a heartbeat, though statement combat boots would certainly stand out among my repertoire of monogrammed accessories and my sorority-hopeful filled school. Many people think Doc Martens are too risky, but if one does a little digging, FABULOUS pairs begin to appear. One must only first get past dark goth black and shiny big bird yellow monstrosities. A picture of the most personality fitting Docs did start this obsession a while back on Polyvore. Unfortunately, I cannot find them to purchase anywhere now! HELP!!
|What an ironic pair, huh? Yet, they are so perfectly balanced, and I cannot resist the perfectly oversized sequins combined with the fairy-tale laces. This statement pair is my all time favorite.|
Below are some more pairs I am drooling over: (but it is a classy drool!)
|In a luxurious velvety oxblood this pair caught my eye. How cute would this plush, vintage pair be with a sundress or pearls? Unexpected right?|
|Who can resist a funky leopard? Treat this crazy print as a neutral and cool-factor is instantly upped.|
|A simple and buttery oxblood pair would be an option that allows me to keep a foot in my comfort zone.|
|In a search for my #1 FAVORITE sequined pair, I uncovered this shimmering jewel! This pair would be unstoppable in a shorter version. I love the toned down metallic.|
|One must never overdo preppy pieces, and a floral on black print could be oh, so fabulous mixed with an oxford or nautical stripes. What better way to add a little edge?|
