White Monochrome Docs + Leather Care

white docs: ebay (navy version here, similar ones here < spray paint the sole?)
shoe grease: Tangent Garment Care

As you already might know, I’m a fan of Tangent GC’s simple graphic design and packaging. This container of shoe grease is so pretty that I don’t even put it away in a drawer but just leave it laying around the house. The guys from Tangent GC mentioned that not only do they use this stuff to keep leather supple, but also use this shoe grease as lip balm. I had to give it a try! All it contains are natural ingredients and oils, it smells like rosemary and does a perfect job as lip balm as well!

About the life size barbie shoes; the kind that are made out of one colored plastic poured into a mold; After a quest of almost a year, I finally found a pair in my size on ebay!

    Those Docs are amazing. Sometimes I feel that the whole black Docs grunge look is a bit overdone. Love the idea of a white pair.

    At Berlin Fashion Week, someone styled a pretty clean and simple collection of short dresses and skirts with knee high socks in white Docs. This looked so cool!

    I’m a big fan of Doc. Martens! And of yours, Ivania. 🙂 Maybe if I can find this magical shoe polish lip balm I’ll become a fan of it too! 🙂 Thanks for the recommendation! 🙂 By the way, are those Docs made in China? I’m just wondering if you can still buy made in England Docs anywhere nowadays.

    Did you spraypaint the sole on your docs? Or how did you get them all white? Can you give me some advice? ‘Cause I have found a white pair, but with a black sole. Love your blog!

  18. Properly, we walked into this donut store and the lady behind the
    counter regarded like she would have somewhat been having a root canal with no medicine fairly than selling donuts.
