Fall Wardrobe // I NEED YOUR HELP!



Slim blazers, simple tees and tanks in dark neutrals, a romantic lace skirt, sheer blouses in creamy shades, black bandage skirts, quintessential ballet shoes, brown leather oxfords, short slouchy boots...

In short, what I dream of wearing this fall. Dark staples offset by dreamy, ballet-inspired pieces, accessorized with colored tights and simple, elegant gold jewelry...

... and these.

VINTAGE FLORAL DOC MARTENS.
I AM IRREVOCABLY IN LOVE WITH THEM.
BUT I NEED YOUR HELP.

I found the perfect, perfect pair on eBay and the bidding ends in thirty hours, so I need you all to answer me this: how do Doc Marten sizes run compared to regular shoes? If I normally wear an 8 or 8.5, what American size would I be in Docs?
This is of the utmost importance. Thank you thank you thank you!


(Topshop blazers, ballet flats, printed crop top, and lace shirt; Old Navy tees and tank; Forever 21 skirts, sweater vest, boots, and floral blouse; Steve Madden oxfords)

jayne said...

oh you must get the docs!

Anna G said...

I hear that docs, run big so an 8 probably be right. Not sure I try on a 5 one time and they were a little tight.

Randi said...

don't know 'bout Doc's sizing, but these are gorgeous! Raise your highest bid by $20 and count me in on your quest :)

Kara said...

8 should be good. I wear 8 but have some docs in a 7.5 that are just a WEEEEEEE bit tight.

lydia said...

that's what I dream of wearing this fall too!!! i love all the pieces.

i'd say pick a half smaller size for the docs.

the docs are absolutely perfect.

Vanessa said...

love the androgyny of the clothes you have chosen!
they are selling the same doc martens on the urban outfitters website, check it out!

Tori said...

I love your wishlist.
I want those docs too!
Well I wear a size 9, and my doc martens are a size 9 and fit perfectly. So they are true to size...

Putri Erdisa said...

oh, so bad that i don't know anything about doc mart's size. but wow, that's such a great pair! totally rocks!
I want it so bad but i can't afford it. sigh.. :(
anyway, great post dear!

Clare said...

Love the oxfords and plaid blazer. Oh, and my mom totally owns those Docs.

Dani said...

those booties would make me strut. i want them.

somedaynewyorker said...

Ahhh. Get the Docs. I love the floral. However i wish the colors were a bit more vibrant.

Anonymous said...

oooooh yummy! where are the flats, skirt and crop top from? (:

Parapluie said...

WOnderful things, I hope you'll be successful with the Doc's!

daisychain said...

No help on the sizes, but I'm drooling over this entire post.

Lauren said...

I'm not sure how it works in american sizing, but they always run a bit larger.
I'm a 39 and I've found 38's fit me better.

I have been wanting floral dr martens for the longest time!!

andara said...

les Doc floral j'avais craqué dessus il y a quelques années mais je ne les ai pas achetées ... maintenant avec mon travail cela ne passerait pas, dommage !

Taryn said...

I loveee both blazers from topshop they look so perfectly cut, like not boxy at all.
Love the docs too...I got a vintage white pair on ebay but I'm thinking of painting flowers on them

Mademoiselle Frou-Frou said...

clairegrenade said...

augh those docs plague my wants and needs as well

asunlitday said...

I love everything you listed for your fall wishlist. I want all the same things!!! I love fall clothes..

Mouthwash said...

For the doc's you could always try heading over to zappos.com and seeing what others say about the fit. You could also Google "Doc sizing" or something. They are wonderful!

SO excited for Fall, I want oversized light sweaters and knee highs. Have to find some nice boots 2

Sandra said...

I'm thinking of buying the actual main size i use, not bigger not smaller. I`ve tried it and it really felt like I did not need a size bigger.

Kinda weird if they make you feel like McDondalds to you know;P

Good luck though!

btw. I like your blog and I will be comming back for more;)

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES. THAT WHITE SKIRT IS TO DIE FOR AS IS THE CROP TOP. MUST. HAVE. NOW! thank you for finding things that will empty my back account. but really, THANK YOU CUZ I'M IN LOVE! I saved this collage you made on my computer in a file called 'YESYESYES' just so you know.

Alanna said...

how perfect a woredrobe, i would say that doc martens are true to size, but the stretch a wee bit, so id go with the 8 if you are between sizes

Amelia said...

Nice picks! In a great coincidence, I'm pretty sure those oxfords are the ones I just ordered. I'm crossing my fingers that they fit properly, because they look absolutely perfect.

linaa, said...

whatever you do. those shoes are pwhaor

Lily said...

Docs are in UK sizes. I'm usually a US 9 or 9.5 and my docs are UK size 6, so I would say you'd probably be a 5

{ A L I C E } said...

Yum yum yum, these are all too much. Now all I need is some money! Wonderful finds x

Isabel said...

If you're a US 8, then you'll be a UK 6 - no bones about it. Don't listen to Lily!

Caroline Robianto said...

hey! i just bought a pair of docs from UO too. i usually wear size 10 (US) and i bought the size 10. and they fit me perfectly!! just see the measurement table, and see the UK size from your own size :P

Yuka said...

great picks. docs usually fit true to size. if they are a bit tight you can always get them stretched. you need to break them in for sure. when i fist got mine i was totally in pain for the first few days.

Noelí said...

amazing doc's :)

Maverick Malone said...

Looove these! The blazers are fabulous, especially the plaid one!

Love the docs, not sure about the sizing though!

adrienne said...

best of luck with the Docs! normally if i'm not sure about sizing, i'll just email the seller the measurements of the shoe from heel to toe and then hopefully it would give me a better idea of sizing. loving all your fall stuff!!

Summer said...

I think Docs have a pretty regular size chart. At least those I have are the same size I always wear.
Good luck with those!

Cookies said...

I have a pair of this flowers Dr.Martens, they're are really cool and people always love them when you wear them. Hope you will have your pair ! :D

Adela said...

i have a pair of doc martens exactly like those , theyre a size 6 but are way too small for me, and i wear an 8-8.5. so i would suggest getting a 7.5. that would be about right! good luck! =D

My favorite pair of docs were purchased at a salvation army 8 years ago! I bought them when I thought I was Gwen Stefani, forgot about them, and then pleasantly surprised myself last Halloween when I found them in the costume box! They're not floral, but there's hope you may be able to find you're own kick-ass pair out there...mine look like rhino skin (the sparkle laces were from the Gwen phase....) hahaha

Shin said...

I love every single piece!! Especially that Topshp printed crop top! I'm obssessed with neutrals at the moment. xxoxoxo

Eliza said...

oh i don't know how to help you dear, but those docs are very beautiful! i really adore them too. and all the clothes you posted here, actually, are beautiful <3

Saraid said...

No idea, I'm sorry!
The Docs are completely gorgeous.

_nina_malvada_ said...

i have no idea concerning to your question...but those Doc Marten look really girly...

i really like your fall collection... :)

Eva Internazionale said...

These boots are so ridiculous that they're awesome. :D

Charlotte Drene said...

My goodness, those Docs are phenomenal! How much are you paying for them?
I saw a pair like this in a vintage shop up north, but they were a ridiculous size. A five, or something outrageous.

Oh, they are so beautiful! I hope they fit!

michellehendra said...

Dream Sequins said...

Jessica said...

I have a pair of vintage floral docs and they run a bit big. They're also really roomy in the front end and feel really clompy.
