My love for shoes began when I was living in Chicago, two years out of college, insecure about my professional credentials and low on cash. I worked with women who had gorgeous hair, gorgeous bags, gorgeous clothes and gorgeous jewelry. To say I felt inept is an understatement.
I struggled to find my niche in a world of confident, accomplished, beautiful women. Then I found an amazing pair of black and white polka-dotted heels. They were affordable, yet distinct, and set me apart from others in the office. I was instantly hooked on heels.
My love for shoes blossomed, and I continued to push the edge as to what I could (or should) wear to work while pursuing a growing communications career. The more distinct the shoe, the greater my courage – at work and in my personal life.
I believe the right pair of shoes can change your perspective on everything! Read more about what I believe and why the company is named Vivian Lou here.
After 15 years and many pairs of high heels later, I have finally found the courage to start my own business. I am excited to offer products that help women stand tall and shine bright.
In support of our mission, we proudly donate a portion of every sale to organizations helping disadvantaged women revitalize their confidence and reclaim their independence. Read more about our partner organizations here.
Here's to focusing more on our dreams and less on our foot pain.
I look forward to hearing your stories of reduced pain, improved balance, straighter posture and increased courage!
Thank you for visiting!
