Hi! I've won this boots in the begining of this year in January in Dr Martens share your style competition in December i used this look in my entrance - http://holy-nights.blogspot.pt/2012/12/burgundy-and-black.html - and i didn't use them much, because i have the classic 8 eye ones and they are more versatile, and then the summer came and they were to hot to use in summer, even for me because i always use boots on summer, i don't really like sandals that much, but they are awesome, they are the vintage made in england style which is my fav, they are practically new, i only used them 3 or 4 times, maybe not that much. I love how they look with skater bottoms, skirts or dresses, and plaid always looks good with docs. I already have a look featuring them - http://holy-nights.blogspot.pt/2013/01/docs-winner-d.html - I have this Zara dress for almost 4 years it is perfect for this weather because the fabric is kind of thick but it has short sleeves. Hope you like the look.
