About My Blog

Welcome to 500 Days of Style! After a recent trip to my fashion capital of the world, Paris, I decided to amp up my style, and chronicle it on this blog!
Hope you enjoy it, and it inspires you to be super stylish (even on a low budget, like me!)

I recently stumbled upon the most amazing shoes website I've ever seen (besides the Doc Marten's online store, of course)! It's called solestruck.com. Check it out! The only think I don't like about the website is that they don't show the shoes on someone's feet. That could be helpful for a few of these.

Here are some of the products they offer:

Black Milk X Jeffrey Campbell
(two of my favorite things together...ohemgee)
The line has four different styles with three different "colors," a comic print, nebula print, and bones print. Here are the four styles in the various colors:

Lita Fab
(available for purchase here)

Night Lita

(available for purchase here)

99 Tie
(available for purchase here)

(available for purchase here)

(aka the studded boots label)
Here are some of the shoes they sell that I love:

(also in black, brown, and tan. available for purchase here)

Beau Coops
Their Finisk line is insane. Very Lady Gaga worthy... take a look:

(would you even consider buying this?)

(or this?)

(honestly I can't even look at these for that long because it hurts my eyes)

Doc Martens Mens
I'm seriously considering getting some Doc Martens Mens and finding a size that fits me because they're amazing. Guys, BUY THESE they're gorgeous!

My favorite is Beckett, available in black and grey:

(available for purchase here)

Women's Doc Martens
The site also sells Docs for gals!

This is my favorite Doc pattern of all time that I just discovered here. I'm in love. Each pair is completely unique because of the fabric placement.. even each side is different! I can't decide if I like the brown or black better though. Thoughts?

(available for purchase here)

They also have the DM Spikes

And DM Pascal

Plus tons of other DM patterns!
