There’s something so cool about seeing industrious women realize their dreams—especially if you’re able to watch it all unfold from the close-to beginning. Such is the case with Megan Papay and Cristina Nelson, the designers behind the cult shoe brand Freda Salavador. To say we’re proud of what these women have accomplished within the four years that we’ve been following them is an understatement. And now that both of them are mothers (Papay to 8-year-old Piper and Nelson to 1-year-old Luca and a baby girl on the way), we’re even more in awe. If you’re not a #fredagirl already, chances are you’ll be one after reading our interview with Papay, in which she shows us around her eclectic home in the beautiful seaside town of Sausalito (just over the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco) and gives us her take on motherhood, work, and all the stuff in between.
