Black Statement Boots
You might have seen these boots on a social media video two weeks ago. These boots are special and unique! Just look at them... they are so much fun, in addition to being fur-fringed, bling-tasseled, suede and Italian made. That is why I had to show them off in a video first!! I bought them right off another women's feet. A first for me! Why might you ask? I attended a Fall Pop-Up for Dress for Success (DFS) Charlotte. This is not your usual Pop-Up... it was for a great cause. Four Charlotte women, all friends, came together two years ago to host Cocktails & Couture. They solicit their friends to provide high-end, haute couture that they no longer wear for donations to the event. The event has become a great success and is now hosted both spring and fall! For every $500 raised, DFS provides job preparedness, job acquisition, employment retention, IT Access and Support, and Career Advancement Services to a woman for an entire year. So twice a year, dozens of women benefit from a fun night of shopping and friendship.
Over the course of the evening, I noticed the boots, one of the hosts, was wearing. I had to comment on them, since they were so unique! Little did I know, she was just modeling them. Next thing I knew, she was taking them off and I was putting them on. That is when I knew I had to have them and voila, they were mine! In fact, I did not take them off till I got home and showed Mr. Silver. (He could not believe the story about how I acquired them.) I should also mention, I bought a couple of other items including a snake bracelet that I adore. I guarantee you will see it in the future!
I hope you enjoy the photo's of these fun boots styled three different ways. Who says we can't wear what we want? I choose stylish, chic and fun every time.

These boots were not the only thing I found at this fun event... I also had the opportunity to meet many wonderful and amazing women! And can't wait for my next Cocktails and Couture Pop-Up! Check out other fun events coming up here or look for your local worldwide DFS chapter.
Thanks for stopping by and reading! Let me know if you ever bought something right off a model or at least wanted, too.
