Ivanka Trump made a bold fashion statement at the Feb. 26 White House Governors' Ball -- by wearing shoes from her own line (photo below).

At the event, Trump wore a $4,300 black and blue strapless studded gown from J.Mendel's collection, while her date, husband Jared Kushner, wore a black suit and tie, notes AOL Lifestyle. But it wasn't Trump's structured dress that was catching people's attention -- on her feet were a pair of strappy black heels, widely believed to be Garis2 dress sandals from her own collection that retail for less than $70.

"Just arrived home after an amazing night at The White House with [Donald Trump], [Melania Trump] and 46 governors from across the nation," Trump captioned a photo of her and her husband dressed for the event that was hosted by her stepmother, First Lady Melania Trump, and her father, President Donald Trump.

At the Governors' Ball, President Trump toasted to his accomplishments so far in the White House and praised his wife for planning the affair in the State Dining Room, which he said "has never looked better," according to the Press-Herald.

"I can say that after four weeks -- it's been a lot of fun -- but we've accomplished almost everything we've started out to accomplish," the president told his guests at the late February event. "The borders are stricter, tighter … We're very happy with the way things are working but, again, we've made a lot of promises over the last two years and many of those promises already are kept so we're very honored by that."

Before moving to Washington, D.C., Ivanka pledged on her Facebook page that she would temporarily sever leadership ties with her fashion company, while Kushner would serve as senior advisor to the president.

"When my father takes office as the 45th President of the United States of America, I will take a formal leave of absence from The Trump Organization and my eponymous apparel and accessories brand," the first daughter wrote in a Jan. 11 Facebook statement. "I will no longer be involved with the management or operations of either company."

The businesswoman went on to say that she looked "forward to working with" those who lend her their "voices and perspective."

"I'm grateful for the overwhelming amount of outreach I've received from people all across America who have shared their stories and offered to extend their ideas and expertise in the areas I am deeply passionate about, including the education and empowerment of women and girls; leveling the playing field for female entrepreneurs and job creators and unleashing the potential of women in the workplace," she added at the time. "I am eager to hear more from them as I determine the most impactful and appropriate ways for me to serve our country."
