CHULITA VINYL CLUB STYLES THE NEW WANDERLUST COLLECTION

Chulita Vinyl Club is the all-girl, all-vinyl DJ collective that’s shaking things up in the music scene. The collective currently has seven chapters spanning across cities in Texas and California. We first met the awesome ladies of the CVC Bay Area Chapter when they played a set at our Market St. store during the 2017 Dr. Martens Presents Tour. When we launched our Wanderlust Collection, we knew they would be the perfect crew to style our range of sweet yet edgy footwear.

What was your initial impression of the Wanderlust Collection?

The 1460 Pascal boot is the perfect combo of tough and femme.

I’m a weird plant mom and flower enthusiast, so there was a natural attraction. If I’m going to wear color, in this case the flowers, there needs to be some black involved. The 1460 Pascal boot is the perfect combo of tough and femme.

Tell us about your first pair of Dr. Martens.

My first Doc’s were a pair of thrifted 1460s I got at Wasteland in the Upper Haight. They were perfectly worn in. Sadly, they were stolen from my car but they had a good run.

What does Chulita Vinyl Club mean to you?

It’s become a sisterhood that provides vital support and encouragement in a male-dominated DJ scene. It allows me to connect to women and others who have an appreciation for music and who like to get down on the turntables and on the dance floor. It’s dope to see how each CVC chapter has their own individual style and vibe, as do each Chulita in CVC as a whole, we’re all so different and bring a diverse set of skills and fierceness to the tables. I have so many fond memories of performing with my fellow Chulitas and I look forward to growing and sharing/taking up space with these queens.

Where are you going in this outfit?

This is definitely an outfit that I would spin in; it’s cute and sexy. The Doc’s are going to hold me up the whole night. Spinning, standing, and dancing get me tired, but comfortable and cute boots are the key to slaying all night!

Tell us about your first pair of Dr. Martens.

My first pair of Doc’s were these brown Oxford For Life Dr. Martens. They kind of remind me of schoolgirl shoes, but they literally go with everything! I can wear them with jeans or a corduroy skirt. I’ve worn them to work occasions or as streetwear style. They’re my favorite Doc’s!

Tell us about one of your favorite CVC sets.

One of my favorite CVC sets was my first set. It was a Tuesday night so the bar was pretty empty, but I was so nervous! I had never DJ’d before but I knew I wanted to do it so I trusted myself. One of the Chulitas explained the set up quickly: she told me about my levels, the fader and the volumes of the mixer. Next thing you know I was spinning all by myself! It was such a rush and it went by so fast! I’ll never forget my first spin.

What was your initial impression of the Wanderlust Collection?

It reminded me of Alice in Wonderland and I liked how detailed the floral print is.

Tell us about your first pair of Dr. Martens.

I got my first pair of Doc’s when I was a sophomore in high school. I begged my parents for a pair of white 1460s. I had those boots for like 6 years before I donated them.

Tell us about one of your favorite CVC sets.

One of my favorite CVC sets was when I visited Japan and got to represent our collective in Tokyo. Everyone was really inviting, grooving to the set and asking about the Chulitas. It made me feel really welcome and proud that we can bring that energy outside of our own spaces.
