Do you remember seeing these amazing burgundy knee-high boots on my Instagram a while back?! Well, let me introduce you to Rebel with Cause! The design duo is based here in Fort Worth and specializes in affordable luxury boots, handbags, and accessories. Who doesn’t want that?! I met the founders, Ivet and Serene, at a charity event and love the back story behind the birth of the brand. On a trip to Bulgaria, Ivet realized that she wanted to bring the European mentality of affordable quality back to Texas. No one there thinks of fast-fashion for shoes! And what is even more amazing is the lineage that is associated with the brand. Her grandmother worked as a shoemaker, and Rebel with Cause is utilizing the same methods for their boots.

I love discovering local businesses, meeting the people behind the brand, and learning their story. It makes me love the brand and piece that much more.

Ivet and Serene were so nice to gift these beautiful boots to me! These knee high boots are lined with the same type of material that they use for horse jockeys boots to help them last longer. How cool is that? I love the luxe bordeaux suede color, and the block heel makes it comfy for walking around town.

“I’ve always been a rebel with a cause, someone who goes against the grain and against the status quo and challenges it for a purpose!” – (RWC Founder) Ivet Taneva

Obviously, it’s easy to wear these boots with skinny jeans, a white tee, and leather jacket as seen on me. I also wore these boots with a black off the shoulder dress (last seen here worn as a top) and the same burgundy velvet choker!

I’ve been eyeing these blush pink booties, grey fringe booties, these cut-out booties, this black double handle bag, and think this round crossbody bag is SO CUTE! LOL! Y’all know how I am about shoes! #obsessedmuch

If you are DFW local, you’ll be able to see, touch, and feel their products during “Shop Small Fort Worth” on the weekend of March 25th at The Foundry Warehouse. 2628 Weisenberger Street, Fort Worth, Texas 76107.

      Yes, me too!!! Rebel WITH a cause – so cool right?! I really love these boots – the stacked heel make it so easy to wear! I’m SO glad they are back in style!

  2. Mica says:

    They are gorgeous boots! I love that colour, beautiful with the denim. Also you already know I love your little Chloe bag, forever the one that got away for me, it’s funny I always liked Chloe’s smaller bags but wanted bigger bags, now I use smaller bags more often and wish I’d bought a few of the ones I liked when I had the chance!

    • Sam says:

      Thanks Mica!! I know what you mean about the ones that got away! And it’s funny bc Mr. s said that I should always get bigger bags but I tend to use the smaller ones too (only when I’m not with the little ones so not as much)! Hopefully you’ll get a few more little ones. Also I saw a pre-owned purple one on Vestaire!!!

      • Mica says:

        I’m going to check out Vestiaire once my no-shop is over. I need to pick a nice “return to shopping” bag purchase as my reward for not buying for 6 months, haha!

        I tend to keep the small bags and slot them in the baby bag or wear them cross body when I’m with my little ones, but sometimes it’s easier just to have everything in the baby bag and not have a bag!

    Hi Sam!

    Those boots are fantastic! We will definitely have to check them out and even better that they’re created in Texas! We love supporting local!


  7. […] have a cropped jean for a shorty like me! Of course, I couldn’t help but pair it with an off the shoulder bell sleeve top (really can’t get enough off the shoulder […]
