How are Dr. Martens like hobbits? Well, for their fiftieth anniversary, they give the best gifts. In my case, I gratefully received a pair of zippered, patent red leather 16-holers. At first, I was a bit intimidated by them, they were so… shiny, slick, snazzy. When worn with black, they bordered on goth-y. My current obsession is a mission to embrace colour. To help me, I enlisted the aid of Ashley Rowe.
Ashley Rowe is a fashion designer whose Fall 2010 collection included a line of original, one-of-a-kind splattered T-shirts. Each lovingly shot one by one with a watergun full of paint, they are a steal starting at $75. Its fun and spontaneous. I asked her if it was possible to do boots, and she went for it! I wanted something preppy-punk, so I asked for blue…
… and white. I was literally making squeaks and groans with pleasure as Ashley splattered my boots. So good! Love love love!
These are epic.

BONUS GIF: big thank you to rock-it promotions for inviting me out to the Precious Metal Gala, my first perfect opportunity to rock the boots. It was a fun night of activities for ladies, sponsored by Harley-Davidson with proceeds going to support Rethink Breast Cancer. I had so much fun, I mostly forgot to take pictures, but I did manage to get three of me, improbably lifting an extremely heavy motorcycle.
