Is there a DOCtor in the House?

maxi dress - H & M, booties - c/o Dr. Martens West Edmonton Mall, hat - Roots, purse - Christopher Kon(Winners), 
gold cuff - Banana Republic, gold + black bracelet - H & M, ring - The Bay

A couple of weeks ago I attended the grand opening of the new Dr. Martens store in West Edmonton Mall on Europa Boulevard - the first stand-alone store in Western Canada - and was gifted with these beautiful, chic, black Kimora laced-up booties, which are surprisingly comfortable! No really, they are. I adore these shoes and I know I'll be getting lots of use out of them all year round. So thank you to the very friendly and extremely helpful staff at Doc Martens! And thanks for the tour of the store and for putting on a great party ; ).

Here are a few pics I snapped that night:

Fun, eclectic prints from the Liberty of London Collection

Women's beautifully-crafted heels
Retro shoes. (Loved these.)

Flirty florals

Brelyn Shannon (Operations Manager), Louise Dirks (Owner), and Douglas Segal (head of Dr. Marten USA)

I hope you all had a great weekend. And now it's back to the grind!

It's really strange seeing DM's with heels but I kind of like them - they'll look awesome with skinny jeans too.
