First and Forever with Doc Martens

Last night my friend Cathy and I hit the Dr. Martens store for the second offering from their #FIRSTANDFOREVER campaign. Among Steamwhistles, canapés and the FIRST LOVE film featuring Agyness Deyn and Ash Stymest, we took in a photo exhibit inspired by a collection of bloggers’ original imagery. Each photo was inspired by their first love. This was my contribution…. 
“He couldn’t make me coffee, but he did bring me to place that does this…”
It was a great crowd. I thought everyone’s photos were fantastic, so unique, so romantic. And then there were the shoes! Thanks to Dr. Martens and Lotus Leaf Communications.

First Loves

Do you remember what you were wearing when you fell in love for the first time?  Back then I was probably wearing Doc Martens – black, patent leather, over the ankle boots, perfectly worn in from standing (or dare I say, moshing) through endless live concerts and late nights.  Oh, the 90’s.
So when Dr. Martens approached me about participating in their #FirstandForever event for their spring 2012 launch, I said yes.  My challenge?  Submit a few snapshots that remind me of my first love.  Tomorrow night the Dr. Martens store in Toronto will become a gallery of bloggers’ first love photographs.

Stay tuned for my report on the exhibit that includes me, the Beckerman girls, Sasha from LaineyGossip, Julio from Fashionights and so many more amazing bloggers.  
And when you find yourself in the neighborhood, stop in to try on new spring styles.  You’ll be amazed at the styles.  In the MANY years since I first fell head over heels for someone, Dr. Martens have gone from this…

 To this…
