With Julie Brown

In the guest chair:

Founder of My Julie Bees, Julie Brown, joined us in the studio today to talk all things shoes.

Julie Bee’s was established after Julie was unable to find sustainable fashion forward shoes to wear to work and out with friends. Shoes today are made with little regard to the environment and the long-term effects on our communities. The  shoes are constructed with ecologically sustainable leathers and vintage pieces providing a delightful visual and stylish appeal.

Julie started with the Department of Homeland Security and consulted for many years in Washington DC before starting Julie Bees.
