“Be yourself, everyone else is taken”
I am pretty sure you have heard this quote many times, but do you truly believe in it? I do. I was not always 100% sure about being myself until this year. My journey through grieving and living alone has completed me and I realized the value of just being myself. You can read all my Life After Loss series here and Living with Cancer series here to see how I got to where I am today. 😉
So who am I? I am just this petite lady with a big smile on all the time. I love colors, great quality things, people and time and I don’t mind just being myself by using things that are custom made only for me! 🙂 You have seen me use a few custom made luxury handbags, skirts, necklaces and even personal greeting cards. Today, I want to share with you my newest custom made finds—Custom Made Shoes from Shoes of Prey!
Shoes of Prey is a website that allows you to design and personalize your own shoes. When I say design, it means you choose your SIZE, HEEL TYPES & HEIGHT and COLORS / MATERIALS for your own shoes. No, it doesn’t need you to draw your own design and send them in. 😉 It was quite fun to design my own Color and Grace flats!
You may be thinking, “I don’t see anything special about your design, why did they need to be custom made?” For a petite woman, unfortunately, I have quite wide feet so normal sized shoes often hurt my feet. In recent years, I have been looking for a super comfy pair of red flat shoes, and I have tried on almost 50 pair in the process! But I just couldn’t find a pair that were absolutely comfy but also flattering on me.
I was quite excited when I found this website because it doesn’t just offer extended shoe sizes – US 2 to 15, but also offers shoes in Narrow, Wide and Extra Wide widths in most styles. Now, finally, I can look good and feel good at the same time. When I first logged in to their website I have to say, with all the styles available, they have a very well balanced selection, from classic to on-trend styles. It took me a while to finally decide what I wanted and add all the little details, but I am very happy with the pointy toe style I picked because it makes my feet look narrower than they really are. I love the little bow I picked because it adds a little bit of extra fun. I am very glad that I picked the skin tone color for the ankle straps, because they are almost invisible and allows my shoes to go with many styles of pants, skirts or dresses!
After submitting my final design, I went to Europe. My Color and Grace shoes arrived beautifully presented after I came home – I felt like it was my birthday all over again! Lol! They fit perfectly and the colors/style are just what I wanted.
I have to say, the service is fantastic. Everything on the website is very easy to use, and the shoes I received are exactly what I wanted. It’s refreshing to have such control over what you buy! I totally love it, and would highly recommend them to anyone. Oh, the shoes are beautifully made as well and you can pick either leather or vegan for your shoes! I already cannot wait to order my next personalized pair.
Did you notice my personal inscription in my shoes? Now you can use the code COLORANDGRACE to get your free custom inscription (valued at $49 USD) when you are designing your own shoes! For example, you can put your own name, your dogs/cats name, your personal quote (Should not be too long), the name of a special place that means so much to you, or just a few cool motivational words for that extra special touch. Overall, they are your shoes and you decide what to put on them to best represent yourself on your pair of shoes. 😉 Just be yourself!!
