Riveting Booties…

My feet are not something that bothers me… at least at this point in my life.   However, I know that many of my readers face this dilemma as I have heard from you.  I have turned down a few shoe partnerships because I did not like the style of the shoes.  When it comes to shoes… it’s always been style over comfort for me.  And I know that’s easy for me to say… when my feet don’t hurt. But then I tried on the Jambu Rimini Leather Bootie with memory foam foot beds and a light bulb went off.  Yes!   You can have a stylish bootie that also offers comfort.  You can check out all their new arrivals here and boots and booties here.

I recently wore this brand new pair of booties on an all day shopping trip and felt like I was wearing my favorite slippers.  I truly felt like I was walking on air. 

I have three stylish friends that are all Brand Ambassadors for Jambu so was intrigued about the brand and the comfort the shoes offer.  Jodie, Dawn and Jess are all three women I admire and who also inspire many other women.  I knew they must have been on to something!

WHO KNEW - White Boots

Hope it's been a great week, friends!  Mr. Silver and I  are getting ready for our son's family including two of grands and can't wait!  As you may know, I am a great shopper and deal finder!  So while shopping for Easter goodies, found some white boots... that I did not know I needed.

Now there is a bit more to the story... as I always wanted white boots when I was young.  However, my parents did not feel they were appropriate.  My older sister and I pined for them.  No lie, every single TV show, had women in white Go-Go boots.  Maybe it was the Go-Go part they objected to.  Can't say we ever really lacked for much, so we never pushed the envelope.  But our staple shoes at the time were black and white saddle shoes!

So when I came across these beauties, I had to make them mine.  Because at 60, nothing is stopping me! 

I never really thought about how I would wear white boots because I wanted them and they were on my list (more on the list in another post.)  However, what I have found since purchasing these, is that I can wear them with everything and everywhere.  Dresses, jeans, skirts, overalls... well, maybe not shorts! 

Do you have white boots and do you love them too?  Would love to hear from you in the comments, below.  You can check out the gallery below for "my white boots," and more choices, the sunnies and the ring.  The rest of this black and white look is from the closet.

As always, thank you for stopping by the blog.  My goal is to share authentic ageless style; fashion, beauty and relevant lifestyle information as we share this fun journey together!  I so appreciate you!

The 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.

Until next time XX
