This weekend I went to the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica and did a little shopping. I've been eyeing the floral Dr. Martens recently and saw these white rose printed ones online and knew they had to be apart of my wardrobe. I never really thought Dr. Martens were the shoe for me because I always thought of the iconic black pair that most people have just seemed too masculine, which is a style that I know people like, but just wasn't something I was into. Then this year, I discovered the floral printed Docs which was featured in their Spring collection, and fell in love because I have a huge obsession with anything floral print (hence the bedding which if you're curious is from Ikea.). I went into Journeys when I was shopping and saw these but they were in a size 10 :/ And the sales guy told me that they were sold out pretty much everywhere and even online which really bummed me out because these were the ones I really wanted. I know they have other kinds of floral print like the black ones I posted before but that black pair is a canvas floral print and these were leather :) Eventually I asked if any other Journeys had them and I was so lucky that he found a random one that carried size 8s! I was so excited and happy that they still had them somewhere in my size and ordered them right away. Yes they were pricey, but I think a great investment because I've heard so many positive reviews for the quality of these shoes and I love the print and they add a little bit of height which is good :P I paid around $140 for these with tax included which is probably the most I've ever spent on a shoe :/ but nonetheless, money well spent because I feel like these would last for a good couple years before they're ready to be retired. I just got these today and I can't wait to break them in and wear them for the fall!!!
So far I've walked in these with my bare foot around my apartment and they seem really comfortable. However, I've heard that the first week or so is hell because you have to break them in which I'm kind of scared about, but I guess no pain no gain.
Here is a summary recap:
