Tell us about some of your entrepreneurial pursuits.
I’m actually starting my own clothing line, called Emily B. It’s going to be feminine, chic, trendy, and of course, affordable. I want to start a line that all women and young girls of all ages can wear and afford.
Do you find that your passion for shoes influences you as a stylist?
It’s just a part of being a stylist. I love to shop, I love fashion, and I love girly things. Shoes are definitely an inspiration for me. I start off with the shoes and work my way up and around it.
What’s the most you’ve spent on one pair of shoes?
$5000. And they were special edition – crystallized, but I would never do it again. It would have to be a very special occasion. Other than that, I don’t want to spend over $3000. Never again.
What’s the perfect “PYNK” girl shoe?
Every girl should own a good black pump, even if it’s just an open-toed pump. It’s versatile — she can wear it with anything, she can wear it with jeans, she can dress it up and wear it out with a cocktail dress.
This Winter issue of Pynk Magazine will be available on New Years Day.
