My friends say I’m the queen of discounts and offers; I rarely buy anything without some kind of student discount or voucher and seem to base my restaurant visits on whether it can be 2 for 1 or not. I don’t mind putting in a little bit of effort to get my freebie fix, so when I heard about Dooyoo, writing reviews for Amazon vouchers, I was hooked. I started off wanting to save for Adobe Illustrator (necessary), but soon got bored of trying to reach the £180 mark, so started buying books and music instead (not quite so necessary). Then I realised that Amazon sold shoes, so decided to turn my Doc Martens fantasy into a reality.
I’d been admiring them for a while, for their ability to ‘grunge’ up a girly outfit, though wasn’t sure how they would look with my gargantuan feet. There’s so many colours and styles out there, but I decided to get regulation black for ultimate versatility.
Technically they were free, though I did have to send back a pair due to sizing issues, but the cost was still very minimal. I’m still trying to get used to them, they desperately need breaking in as they’re feeling pretty stiff. Anyone have any tips?
I’m looking forward to teaming these with extreme shortness; dresses, skirts, shorts, whatever, and I’ll let you know my findings. If any of you want to start getting review obsessed, (you can review anything from Topshop to toothpaste) send me an e-mail and I’ll invite you (if you want to help me out, pointswise). My next target is an overlocker. Though I probably won’t save for the full amount, I’d like to discount it by a huge percentage, to kickstart my clothing ambitions.
