I want everyone reading my website to feel like they are the soul in their stilettos, too. Shoes will always fit, regardless of the weight you gain or lose or the day you are having. I am happiest and most confident in my favorite pair of shoes and I will forever be the soul in stilettos.” Emilie Sobel

She is also the creator of a terrific blog, called Soul in Stilettos. You have the feeling after talking to Emilie that the sky is the limit for this city girl at heart and that she will find her way just fine. Here is my conversation with Emilie:

Emilie: I have always known exactly what I’ve wanted to do with my career – growing up was something I had been looking forward to basically my whole life.

Alina says, “Peace Love World is about experiencing fashion in a soulful way – mind, body, spirit.” I asked Alina how she came to tell this amazing story …

Alina: I moved from Cuba to New York when I was 8 months old and after twelve years my family moved to Atlanta. Growing up in New York and Atlanta made me realize that everyone is looking for the same thing no matter where you come from. I learned how to love and appreciate all types of people, personalities and ethnicities. Continue reading
