Shoe Lust: Creepers

I love a good photo montage. Here's my latest one, surrounding a particular theme - creepers.

Sources, left to right, top to bottom: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8

I can always tell when something has crept, so to speak, onto my wishlist, by the fact that I'd be pinning images of them 5433212x a day. Lately it's been a lot of black, a lot of grungey stuff, a lot of denim and a lot of long, washed out hair. I don't think I'd quite stretch to Lennon glasses, but I definitely feel like experimenting more with layering and velvet. Big love to Fritha and Amy in particular in these snaps!

From top left, clockwise: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6

Since culminating in an obsession with these, I've developed something of a shortlist. I don't think creepers necessarily have to be worn with gothic black lace and a scowl, I like the snaps when they're contrasted with pretty dresses and ankle socks. Out of this selection I've bookmarked, I like the block platform versions the most I think, I'm erring for number 3... thoughts?

EDIT: I've just found out I got a 1st in my dissertation eeeeeeee! I'm not sure what I got overall yet, the room is spinning, I'm quite nervous! HURRAH!

    I love the look of creepers, can make any outfit look cool! Especially love the lilac and purple hair on the bottom pic!
    Think I might look a bit bizarre in creepers though, have to try some on and see!

  10. Congratulations on your dissertation mark, smarty pants! I adore my creepers and I've found myself wanting another pair. I agree with you in the fact they look best teamed with a girly dress and some cute ankle socks! ♥

  11. WELL DONE CLEVER CLOGS. Or should that be celever creepers? (Answer: no, no it shouldn't.) I'm not personally a fan of the creeper, but I'm sure you'd pull them off, just like you do with your doc martens! xx

  12. I've been getting more amd more into creepers after seeing them in so many outoft posts. Although i was in office the other day and picked up a pair to have a closer look and damnnn they are heavy. People who wear them all day must develop some serious leg muscles!
