One of my clients recently opened me up into the world of....BUILD YOUR OWN SHOES! How did I not know about this?! I needed to write about it immediately. Such a genious idea! Although there are a few websites to choose from, I really like Milk and Honey Shoes. They do have their own collection that you can just purchase but if you are looking for something very specific for your waredrobe or for a special event, you can just click on their "Design Your Own Shoes" tab and off you go building your own custom shoe! Choose everything from the type of shoe (platform sandal, pump, bootie, etc) and then go onto toe shape, material, color, print, back and straps, trim, embellishment, heel and platform. Although in theory I love a high heel (the shoes I just created below are using their 5" heel!), I also love that you can create lower heels on this site (flats or as low as 1 1/2") that are great for the office or for those of us who just can't stand all day in heels. I could play all day on this website, making the perfect shoe for each special event I have coming up! This could be dangerous!
Check out the sparkly platform peep toe with ankle strap and back bow detail I just cooked up this morning...Now go make your own!
