The Coveted: For years I've wanted a pair of plain original black matte dr. marten boots. ^
The Almost: My sisinlaw relinquished her orange patent 1460 dr. marten's to me which I broke in over the past summer. I fell in love with those... only problem... there are only so many outfits you can pair a pair of neon orange boots with.
The Bargain: A couple years ago I was searching dr.marten's website in the sale section and found the black "Darla" boots on sale. I watched them for weeks and finally ordered. I loved them as well but with their high heel they weren't as practical as I told myself they would be when I bought them.
A couple months ago I started surfing through ebay hoping I would run across some. Even ebay they ran close to $100...but then last week during my late night window shopping I discovered treasure.
The Find: A pair of black matte 8 hole 1460 original dr. marten new buy it now for *gasp* $25.00.
As I slowly scrolled down the listing I knew they just had to be in my size. *gasp*
Was my search really over?!
The Found: Needless to say the buy it now was clicked and my pair of dr martens were on their way to me bright and early the next day.
Everyday I'd click the tracking willing them to come faster... but then a lingering thought in my head was..."what if they don't fit? what if they aren't as I dreamed them up to be for so long?"
The Arrival: Yesterday a box was waiting on the front porch when I got home. After a deep breath I opened the box:
to find the most perfect softest leather dr. martens just as described.
I tried them on...
Love at first sight.
