Want to look like you can hang with Don Draper, but feel a little skeevy about wearing someone else's old, musty shoes? Re-mix on Beverly Boulevard recreates both men's and women's shoe styles from the first part of the last century, usually in color schemes appropriate for that time (think lots of dark blues, browns and greens). 7605 Beverly Blvd., Fairfax District. (888) 254-1813, www.remixvintageshoes.com.
Well, if you want something done right ... Sisters Ilissa and Dori Howard's popular DIY website allows you to custom build your own fabulous footwear to your own specifications -- a life-saver if you're a bride-to-be, a busy online shopper looking for the perfect fit, or if you want to create your own (probably cheaper) version of those Louboutins or Jimmy Choos you've been coveting. (They also work with celebrities to create shoes to help charities, such as the above gold pumps that Whitney Cummings designed to benefit Operation Smile.) Bring your vision to life through the store's website or by booking an appointment in Milk & Honey's downtown showroom. Orders take around six to eight weeks to arrive. 117 West 9th Street, #205, dwntwn. (310) 691-3000, www.milkandhoneyshoes.com.
