Streetstyle: The DCONSTRUCT

I do remember hearing myself say that I would never post streetstyle photos of myself on D-CONSTRUCT, but something has to be said for progress, new blog = new adjustments. As a self proclaimed style virgin, I had to make the first ever post about simplicity, don't get this confused with minimalism. If you ever wondered what the boy behind the blog wears, well this gets the meat and potatoes prize for my go-to look.

The "DCONSTRUCT" calls for one white Zara T-Shirt, a pair of great Zanerobe Buckshot Cargo Pants (SIMILAR HERE) (the look and fit of these are INSANE), top your tee with a great cutting black blazer (the above is last season Zara) but take your own, I am also a sucker for Dr.Martens but need a sneaker sometimes for extra walking, so I have my Fall 2014 Eduardo boots on (SIMILAR HERE). Depending on how you feel about scarves, you can add one if you like (Forever21 Pictured).

Spring is in session, but soon I'll have to ditch the layers for some sun ready tanks and shorts, that's Montreal weather for you. If you like my style, there's more coming shortly.

Sole Style: Doc Martens Womens Spring 2014

Compulsive shopping disorder affects the best of us. Come Spring, come Fall there is a shoe (or many) that speak to us wherever we go, whether it be a red soled Christian Louboutin at the department store, the Chloe Suzanna ankle boots on all the celebrities, or my personal fetish...a pair of Doc Martens. 

Having started a mini collection with half a dozen pairs of my own, Doc Martens have a way of adapting to my personal style and my code of ethics in shoe buying. First of all, if the shoes qualifies as "pretty" thats only first base in shoe world, please do me a favor, go into the store and WALK in the shoes long enough to get a comfort analysis on them, it will aggravate the salesperson (I know, I am one) but will save you the hassle of a painful return trip later on. 

The above having been said, Doc Martens do have a period where you have to break them in, but fit like gloves after two or three wears. Traditionally we associate the Doc Marten with a punk-era boot with an inch thick rubber sole, ready to terrorize the streets. Contrary to your shoe-xperience, Spring 2014 has shoes for all walks, and I have selected my top looks that you can buy NOW! 


A classic reinterpretation of the traditional style Dr. Martens have been known for, the Beckett is for the seasoned DM follower who updates in print without leaving the comfort zone. 



Bernadette screams high fashion with openings for the girl with a panache for the Alexander Wang-esque open concept. Leather shorts/skirts mandatory. 


More Jet-Set while retaining it's badassery, Candice takes the Doc's to a new height and follows a Spring trend report that calls for a thick heel and cutout sides. 


The girl who can't give up her sneakers will have an easier time with the Hackney, ultimate comfort with many motifs (though these florals impress), try saying no once they're on.
