FashionIndie Pays a Visit to the Dr. (Martens) in Portland

Edited by

Last night’s 90s party really got me jonesin’ for my first (and forever) pair of Doc Martens. They were a woven strap sandal, and I wore them almost every day in the spring of 4th grade. My love of the ultimate foot Dr. brought me to the U.S. Dr. Martens headquarters in Portland, where the 90s are alive and well on the street.  I scoped out all the upcoming collaborations, like model-turned-actress-now-designer Agyness Deyn (out now!) and new styles that’ll make you smile.

9 Chic Shoes for a Muddy Festival

Edited by

A single drop of rain can turn a festival into a mushy moshpit. You have several (pretty terrible) options: Destroy your TOMS/Chucks and walk with soggy feet. Sacrifice an ankle strappy sandal. Go barefoot and risk shards of bong in your foot. Flip flops are not an option. (Trust.) The solution: Bring a pair of rain shoes and become impervious to the muddy elements. There are a lot of hideous ones out there. Check the cute ones we found, like the brand new all rubber Docs.

10 Reasons Dr. Martens are on Top of the World

Edited by

Aside from the fact that Dr. Martens were the sole of countless musical subcultures and youth revolutions for the past half a century, and that since 1960, they’ve literally been letting us walk on air, they’ve proven time and time again that they are on top of their game. Pete Townshend, Sid ViciousKurt Cobain and countless other badass music gods reinvented Docs from the stage down, and now Dr. Martens has reinvented from within. In addition to the baller design team they’ve acquired to create the 10 rad styles ahead, they’re also bringing bespoke into the picture with custom Docs for all who can get to their London Spitalfields location.

Under a Cool $25: Lori’s Festival-Worthy Wide Beaded Bangle

Edited by

On this fine Monday morning, I’m seeing sunshine, blue skies, and the effects of The Black Keys and Gotye on shuffle, and I’m thinking one thing: Music festivals. I already know I’m taking my Docs to Coachella next month, my glowsticks to the Governor’s Ball, and a hula hoop or two to All Good, but now I found a beaded bangle that will gleam brightly in the sun as I dance the day away. (And it won’t kill my vibes if it gets lost/destroyed/traded for something special… It’s $15 well spent.)

You’re Here, You’re Queer, Get Into It: Picking the Perfect Coming Out-fit

Edited by

Today is October 11th, better known as National Coming Out Day — the day when all excuses for “drunken” late night hook-ups, all half-hearted reasoning behind “accidental” brushes against the thigh and innumerable piles of carefully hidden porn come tumbling out of the closet. After all, it’s 2011 and being gay is okay. You can kind of get married — if you live in New York, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, New Hampshire or Washington D.C. — and you can openly serve in the military — as if you would either way — so what’s not to be proud of? And sure, being gay’s not all is cracked up to be — it really doesn’t get that much better — but it’s still better than living a lie that no one nor their mother is buying. So go head, Mary, wave that rainbow flag and blast your Lady Gaga ’cause lady you were born this gay.

Just Be a Drag, Don’t Be a Queen. Lord Gaga is Jo Calderone

Edited by

Not a Queen, but in drag, Lord Gaga A.K.A Jo Calderone took the VMA stage last night to open the night with a testosterone induced version of You and I. Gaga’s 1950′s greaser alter ego comes with full pompadour and a drinking problem that we kind of want to get rowdy with. Get the cross-dressed look and relive that epic performance (with Queen’s guitarist! Brian May).

First Coachella Dream with Dr Martens and his Prescriptions

Edited by

In a fantastical dream last night, I was skipping through hot fields packed with wildly garbed people and hula hoops. Ahead of me, The Black Keys were electrifying “Everlasting Light” on a massive stage, and behind me there was a great deal of foofaraw; including a giant glowing structure built of egg cartons and, oddly enough, each of my  head scarves. I was floating, lighter than air, and every time I looked down at my feet, I was wearing a different pair of Dr. Martens. Metallic high tops! Purple polka dot creepers! Impressionist floral combat boots! And each time the Docs made a switch, The Sartorialist, Scott Schumann, snapped a picture of me. Meanwhile Garance Doré was across the field with 3 trailer trucks and a bevy of models, lighting, and incidentally, glow sticks, whilst she directed a photo shoot. When I turned back, The Black Keys had stopped, and the president of Dr. Martens takes the mic to welcome us all to Coachella 2012.

There can only be one explanation for such a dream….
