Secret gig with Dr Martens.


Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to a secret gig launching the new Dr Martens shop in Bristol. Not only was it a great excuse to do some window shopping, but it was also lovely to have a catch up with some of my favourite ladies; Steph of Stephanie Dreams, Paige of Paige Joanna and Chloe of Chloe Lee Photography. There was a lot of laughter, and lusting over an ever-expanding list of shoes and satchels that we could only ever afford in our dizziest dreams! In Chloe's words, "I want everything."

It's definitely the right (or wrong, depending on how you look at it!) time of year to get lost in a shiny new shop crammed with gorgeous, cosy looking boots. There were some amazing studded designs, beautiful printed velvet, classic brogue and mary jane styles, and plenty of rich, wintery greens, purples and oxbloods. In particular I fell head over heels in love with the cherry red Brook shoe. We all found ourselves drawn to different parts of the shop making new discoveries. I was extremely envious of those who put the ever so tempting 50% discount to good use and came away with bulging bags of footwear goodies. I was more than a little resentful of my meager student budget! At least I came away with some ideas for the Christmas list...

I was extremely grateful for a good escape from my busy uni week. The drink was flowing, there was lots of live music and shopping talk - you can't ask for much more than that on a Tuesday evening!
