Summer Update from Sophia
Me again! I hope everyone is having a gorgeous summer. The holidays have flown by in our house juggling work, kids’ clubs, slime-making, castle-climbing, and even a Ninja Warrior UK challenge!
I was trying my best to pack light so choosing shoes was a challenge but I lived in my ‘Esme’ sandals. They were so perfect because they can get wet, so ideal for the beach and sparkly enough for a casual evening. It was great to get a chance to try the girls in some of my new Mini summer sandals, get their feedback, and see how they wear. I switched the Mini production to Spain recently and the quality and comfort is just incredible. I’m so excited to start adding more designs to the collection!
The first copy of my memoir ‘Oh My Gosh, I Love Your Shoes!’ arrived whilst I was away. I was overwrought with emotions at the thought of opening it. It was created with so much love, honesty, and obsessive attention to detail that I was super nervous to open the package. I could never imagine not seeing a physical shoe before proceeding to production with it, but in the literary world, you only see proofs of pages not a complete book before the whole run is made…terrifying!!! But, to my absolute delight, I LOVE it! Holding the first copy in my hands was magic. I’m so proud of it and can’t wait for you to read it. You can see my reaction below…
Have a beautiful day,
