Design Your Very Own *Dream Shoes* at Milk & Honey...at Dreamy Prices!
Whether it's for work, play, or that special event or wedding (be it yours or someone else's), the shoes make the outfit. Which pretty much guarantees that unless exactly what you want happens to be au courant exactly when you need it, OR, you've resigned yourself to forking out the equivalent of a month's rent...you're screwed.
Hoof it on over to the Cali-based milk & honey, the most fabulously fun design-it-yourself line of custom footwear created by a similarly shoe-addicted sister duo, Ilissa & Dori Howard, who understand your dilemma! Using their super-easy shoebuilder (which is as addictive as FB or Perez and therefore completely NSFW...so consider yourself warned), you can construct everything from the perfect pump to a Michelle Obama'esque kitten heel to the the strappiest stiletto to the most fabulous flat. "With the perfect combination of savvy web programmers and our skilled cobblers, we have figured out a way for women to design their own shoes in an affordable and accessible way," explains Ilissa, to which Dorian adds: "Because I've spent my entire life being high-maintenance, I believe I am in the unique position to help women find their perfect shoes – if you want a higher heel, a lower ankle strap or that exact shade of navy blue – milk & honey is the place to go."
Between all the various heel heights, toe shapes, strap options, colors, materials & embellishments, there are over one million different shoe combinations possible. However, the most important numbers you need to know pertain to heel possibilities (flat on up to a 5" heel), styles (pumps, slingbacks, hidden & external platforms), fabrications (12 - including lambskin, silk, snake, pony, glitter & vegan-friendly options), embellishments (bows, studs, knots, piping & flowers), and widths (3 - narrow, medium & wide). If you're short on time, be sure to check out their "Greatest Hits" page of ready-to-go styles - like these ROCK ON ones we're COMPLETELY obsessed with - variously designed by fashion editors, brides-to-be, and chic celebs like Ginnifer Goodwin ("What more can I say about designing my own shoes? They're actually everything I want them to be… including comfortable!”), Emily Deschanel, Topher Grace ("I hate shopping but love buying my mom great gifts for mother’s day -- I was excited to be able to go online and buy her a gift certificate to design her own shoes. It was a unique gift & she had a really fun time designing them") & one famously skinny bitch (aka Rory Freedman).
Whatever you end up choosing/designing, your fabulous shoes will be lovingly brought to life by skilled artisans and show up on your doorstep in just over a month (6-8 weeks) and yes, they ship internationally...although, for an additional $50, they can rush them to you sooner!
