Shoes of Prey

"Are there designer shoes your loved is obsessed about but you just can't afford? Do you want to give a more personal gift? These customized shoes are tailored to your giftee's taste. You can build a pair to look like a high-fashion set or just to really reflect the wearer's personality. Choose the shoe style, sole, color, material...even monogram the inside. The process is easy, the price is relatively affordable and your giftee will feel a little bit more special with something specifically designed for them." -Diana Nguyen, Supervising Editor

Tiff Wu

"While the bags from this LA-based designer are beautiful and made in California with materials sourced from Italy, the female-empowering message it promotes is really what makes it special.

If you're not big on metallic accents, the Pebbled Fold-Over is just as cute." -DN
