emilyviveur 's thoughts:

Shoes are, without a doubt, my favorite item in a wardrobe, which only made it all the more difficult to actually design a shoe. There are so many types and styles that I love, how could I ever settle on designing just one pair of shoes? Due to imagination overload, I decided to wait a little bit before designing my shoe so my ideas could settle down and I wouldn’t end up creating something impulsively I’d regret later. I spent a few weeks sifting through photos, some of which eventually became my inspiration.
I settled on blending together the Jeffrey Campbell girl (bold, daring, unafraid to be fashion forward), and my own vision on what I want my style to be like (minimalist and effortless with a focus on details). I also became heavily inspired by two pairs of shoes that I fell in love with at first sight: a pair of Celine wedges and a pair of Givenchy men’s sandals. The result was Carpe Diem: a perfect mix of simplicity and boldness that can be worked with all types of styles and for all types of occasions. The Carpe Diem girl looks fantastic whether she’s pulling on a wrinkled pair of jeans from her bedroom floor, or pulling on an evening gown. She never tries too hard but stands out anyways, and she will always take the opportunity to seize the day (carpe diem) in front of her.

(P.S. I’m also envisioning these wedges in white and in tan/leather colors.)
