So (again) it took me a while to write you guys a new blogpost because I was really busy lately. Christmas was coming up (and now over), really stressful (and challenging) activities at work and the dentist took out my whisdom-teeth. It hurt so much that I was not in the mood to take any photos (even my face wasn’t in the mood).
So here I’m again to spoil you with some personal memories and to entertain you within the couple of minutes.
A few weeks ago I visited the opening of a new Dr. Martens store in the city centre of Maastricht (Kleine Staat 19). This brand is famous for its air-cushioned sole, dubbed Bouncing Soles, developed by Dr. Klaus Maertens of Germany.
I always thought Dr. Martens boots weren’t fit for me because of the rocking attitude it brings with it. But I must say, its collection has dozens of different styles, including conventional black shoes, sandals and steel-toed boots.
The funny thing about a lot of brands lately; they always manage to bring an iconic piece of clothing back in style. So I did some research to the history of Dr. Martens and it was very popular when it all started in the 60’s, but also in the 90’s were these shoes very iconic. And now it’s 2016 (and many years ago) and everybody loves those biker/army boots with their classic yellow-stitched bouncing soles.
But that’s fashion; instead of saying history repeats itself; you can say: fashion repeats itself. But the main important part of this is;
it’s up to you to make it back on trend for yourselves!
So back to the opening party. I have tried lots of styles at Dr. Martens Maastricht. For example I tried the iconic army boots (that’s how I call it haha) and I looked at myself in the mirror and I though by myself; hmm.. this is not me. I really like it when other girls or bloggers wear them, but à la Simone there must be something girly on it. And that’s typical me; a mix of styles put into one style!
So I managed to look for another angle and I found my beauties: the Ellaria’s.
It’s got a double monk strap with a double kiltie. In other words? The Ellaria women’s shoe is ready for a pair of glitter socks and leather pants— a fashion-forward rocking style with an irreverent edge. The Ellaria’s double monk strap boasts brass buckles—with hidden elastic for an easy get-up-and-go. The Ellaria is constructed on the iconic air-cushioned sole, that’s oil-and-fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance—and has been since 1960 (cool J).
I love the way you can combine these brogue shoes; casual and chic at the same time. So in other words: these classic leather goods are lifers, for sure.
What do you think?
