i had a dream last night, and it fit me like a glove...boot.

Since Ambien erases my memory every night, I rarely wake up with clear impressions from my dreams. But last night was different. I dreamt that I was the old lady who lived in the shoe, except the shoe was this floral-print Doc Marten.

I seriously coveted this boot in middle school, and when it was re-released and featured in a Nylon editorial starring Sienna Miller, my obsession was re-ignited. I know that a lot of Nylon readers thought this spread was obnoxious (though I say, no more obnoxious than most other Nylon spreads!), but I personally can't judge. The fact is, if I owned a pair of these boots, I'd probably lick them all day too.

I've been keeping my eyes peeled for this boot in a size eight for years, but the few times I've actually found it, the price has been astronomical. Black floral Doc Martens, you are my white whale.

If you ever see a pair, send me a tip at!

I feel that everyone should have a pair of these since I treasure mine so dearly :)
