LookBook x Dr. Martens #FIRSTANDFOREVER Pt. III

Style blogging website Lookbook.nu and Dr. Martens sent longtime lookbookers Shea Marie, Unyime Akpanudosen, Tahti Syrjala, Edward Honaker, & Lua P. a pair of Docs for them to style and asked them to share a personal memory of a first experience for the Dr. Martens “First and Forever” Project.

Here’s what they came up with….

Lua P. on her first pair of DM’s: “I entered a thrift store fantasizing about finding a pair of shoes similar to the classic Docs. When I saw the shoe rack and recognized some similar boots I ran to get them. I couldn’t believe they were actually vintage Dr. Martens…I died of happiness. They were waiting for me there to become my favorite pair of shoes!”

Tahti Syrjala on her first rave: “It was in the middle of nowhere—two hours spent driving to a hidden valley lined by trees, in which incredible artwork and speakers were strung, surrounding the area. It was intense. The sense of isolation heightened the experience.”

Shea Marie on her first tattoo: “It’s a little black heart behind my ear that I got with my best friend when we were 16. We’ve been through everything together. We still live together to this day and it’s a constant reminder of our friendship and all the fun experiences we’ve shared.”

Edward Honaker on his first fight: “I got into some stupid argument with an old friend of mine, and the next think I know we’re throwing punches at each other. No hard feelings, though; we ended up getting ice cream afterwards.”
