I need a pair of silver DMs

Yet another in my 'in the toilet' photographs,
this time taken in the ladies' at my dear friends' wedding.  I am really not into the conventional offerings for women over 50 to wear for such occasions, and not just because they're too expensive.  I don't at the moment have a large selection of formal or wedding wear, but one of my trips to the charity shop sometime last year had yielded this silvery grey little dress with pleated skirt, lacy top and pearl detailing around the neck.  It was super cheap, size 16 (ma boobies need plenty of room) and although I had no idea when I would be wearing it, it was perfect for me so I bought it when I saw it.  Here I've teamed it with a light grey 3/4 sleeve cardigan, which you can't see, my 'atmosphere' pleather jacket (another charity shop bargain from ages ago, oh my god how I covet a real one) and some ballet pumps from Accessorize.  The silver bag is also from Accessorize, both are 2017 autumn stock. The bag is lovely, really perfect for going out and actually has enough room for everything, it has its own little credit card holder built in as well as an internal zip.  It has an external zip, which is something that I really like in a bag.  Its the 'Claudia' crossbody, and it also comes in black. I'll link it here if you want to have a look at it.

I got the ballet pumps at the same time, because although I have a few pairs of shoes that I could have worn, they are more suitable for admiring than wearing! I bought the pumps to stuff into my bag just in case, but by the time the car had arrived at the venue, I'd changed into the flats. I decided that, in line with my rock chick (chick haha...more like old boiler!!) style, I could do with silver DMs for occasions such as these.  I will have a little browse in Doc Marten store in the Lanes in Brighton next time I'm there, or see what I can find online.  I don't know if these are just a wish of mine or if they actually exist out there!  Let me know down below!
