In 1866, Indiana teenager Pearl DeVere (age 14) ran away from strict religious parents and ended up working the brothels of Denver. When the last great Colorado Gold Rush turned Cripple Creek into a Boomtown, Pearl started her own brothel there, employing several local girls. She was well known for wearing lavish clothing in public, and for never being seen twice in the same clothes. In 1895, Pearl met and married a wealthy mill owner - wealthy, until a fire raged through Cripple Creek's business district, destroying most of the businesses, including his mill and her brothel. Her husband never recovered financially and moved to California, while Pearl stayed in Cripple Creek to rebuild her brothel. With construction finished in 1896, Pearl decorated with lavish carpets, hardwood furniture, electric lamps, and bathtubs with running water, making her brothel the most modern and successful business in town. Pearl battled insomnia and used Morphine to help her sleep, but sadly in the summer of 1897 Pearl accidentally overdosed and was found dead at the age of 33.
Using soft, pebbled, vegetable-tanned leathers with diamond patterned laser cutouts, printed paisley designs on the black and white colourway, all on a 2.5" Fellowship-hi heel and tunite Bellevue sole, the Spring booty DeVere is sure to make your business assets golden.

Love the boots and they fit great. I wear a 7 1/2 and always wear a 7 1/2 - a 8 is always too big, so don't go up! Wore the boots to the office today with jeans and received many great comments. A few people said I need red stockings for Valentine's Day that keep peek out.
