I went along to the launch party of the new Dr Martens store in Newcastle on Thursday night with Charissa from CharissaRae. The new store opened on Grainger Street last Wednesday so lots of people were invited down to have a look-see. We met up with Helen from thelovecatsinc and got coaxed into getting a polaroid taken in this cool photobooth van.. the photo was horrendous! If you'd like to see what I was wearing for the event, you can read my outfit post here.

The store was so busy, lots of people were there including journalists and other bloggers, which I didn't get the chance to talk to properly. The event was supplied with drinks by Anarchy Brew Co and Fentimans. Electric East also supplied some really nice Thai 'street food', I had spicy diced chicken and rice which was amazing. There was DJ set by Neil Parkington while everyone shopped with an amazing 50% discount throughout the whole store. There was this really nice shirt that I wanted and I'm now kicking myself because I didn't get it in the end. Silly girl. They also had live music by the bands Hati and Sunderland's own, Frankie and The Heartstrings!

We then ended up at the afterparty, which was held at the bar Pleased To Meet You. We were greeted at the VIP area with champagne and a free drinks token. Waitresses were constantly coming round with burgers, pate and mini sugar doughnuts.. me and Charissa got a bit too carried away. I could have ate the whole plate of doughnuts if they'd let me.

I'd like to say a big thank you to Dr Martens and Lauren at OPR for inviting me along and for the amazing boots, I had a really good night.

  2. This looks so lovely! I am near to their Brighton store but its not as nice as this one. I have never really though about getting a pair, but I am tempted now. They look so good with dresses, and would make a change from my biker boots!
