why i love trash

Trash & Vauderville. Nylon TV
Over time, you have probably noticed me mentioning Trash & Vaudeville quite a bit.
It’s my one stop spot for punk rock clothes, jewellery and shoes. The shoes in particular really appeal to the Brit in me (I currently own two pairs of Docs and recently bought metallic silver brogues which I’ve been wearing already). They have a huge selection of Doc Martens, multi buckled ankle boots and Creepers. The last two styles, in case you hadn’t noticed, are currently being touted as the shoes of the moment from several designers.
To me, this Sienna Miller video for Nylon, really captures the appeal. (ps. I LOVE the gold and black and the teeny floral print Docs she’s wearing – can you help me find a US 9 online??).
Does the punk inspired shoe aesthetic appeal to you too or no?

  4. Tariro says:

    OMG LOOK AT ALL THOSE CREEPERS! They are my current obsession lol. That place is AMAZING!

  5. nongallerina says:

    The docs, brogues, and buckled boots are on target. BUT, the creepers are a big no, no in my book. I left those back in my high school rockabilly days. They should never be brought back!

    Your blog is SICK and so are those pointy toe booties! I found your lovely blog via Lagelle Daily Dose, and boy am I glad I did! I’m already looking forward to the next post and to catching up on the past posts.

    not sure about creepers, but i definitely like those buckled boots in the last photo! I like shoes that add edge to girly outfits.

  17. Velony says:

    I always like to stop by Trash & Vaudeville when I’m in NY. Can’t wait to check out what they have this time.

    I used to wear burgandy colored docs when I had my high school grunge (Nirvana) phase but I wouldn’t wear them again because they just don’t look very flattering on me. For some reason on everybody else though as it seems.

    I never liked creepers but those buckle boots look pretty cool.


  18. Anonymous says:

  19. WJ says:

  20. Karen says:

    Velony – hmmm try them again and take a pic of you in them? You should just wear em again if you really love em!!

    Sarah K – Yea those buckled boots are pretty all over right now so it’s nice to see them right here, in different colours etc. I almost tried them on but thought naah don’t tempt yourself Karen.

    WJ – its boot and punk clothing heaven!! lol!!!

    Pennerad – let me know how you get on if you go.

    Glad you guys responded (either way) on your thoughts on these shoes. Not for all (like anything) but I LOVE EM!!

  21. Diana says:

  22. Karen says:
