Mahousive thanks to everyone that entered the Dr Martens competition. Seriously who doesn’t want to get £500 worth of Dr Martens gear. So who entered? Check out the entries below. After which I let you know the runner up and of course the ultimate winner.
Love Jess’s look, and especially love the fact she cheekily entered both here and with the delectable Charlie May! Loving your work! Fact is folks you could have entered at least 4 times as this comp was being run on several sites.
The very first entry from the hilarious SouthPortLush (we’ve bonded on Twitter before and she def deserves a follow or two). Bonus points for being caught reading Caitlin Moran. My love for that woman borders on inappropriate and I’d love to ‘interview’ her. By interview I mean go out and get absolutely hammered, though suspect she’d drink me under the table.
Love the hair, love the leggings, and tartan DrM’s! Gaga_Binks I salute you. Styling out the leopard print too. Much kudos! Like a festival Bett Lynch. Definite win!
Moody, graffiti, dip dye, loads of leather and a cheeky bit skin. This from Hannah was my number 2! and not in bad way.
So who won??
It had to be Sam Doyle. Ok so technically this may not be his exact individual style being that it’s his costume from the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics. I’m on an Olympics come down and I just love this. Also apparently Sam didn’t get to keep these classic Dr Martens afterwards.
So congrats Mr Doyle, get in contact and we’ll sort out your vouchers. Spend them wisely……..hell spend them foolishly I dont mind. I’ll also be putting you in contact to organise your tour of the factory. Not bad at all!
So that’s all for now from myself and Dr Martens. Thanks to all your images, genuine love for them all. As regards my own personal style, the shirt has washed and worn well. It holds it’s shape after washing and I love the overdye. How this will age I’m not sure but I’ve no doubt it’ll look good, as the different levels of dye react and wear differently.
The scarf, it’s a bit short, but soft and lovely, I prefer my scarves bordering on the styles of the Fourth Doctor.
The boots, exactly what I’ve needed since a great pair of Timberlands met a horrific end. Ever the city boy, much to my mock horror on trips home my Dad drags me to the country for a walk. These are often termed ‘character building’ and being in Ireland involve more rain than is good for me. (Seriously I am soo rugged!). But a decent pair of boots is essential. They’re comfortable and perfect for trekking through snow, mud, rain, festival goers, etc to discover that something ‘character building’ can result in a beautiful view across Irish mountainside that’ll leave you breathless.
