Our relationship with high heels might be a little
unstable; we love them and they do nothing but
bite and pinch in return. But, they do provide the
perfect finish to any outfit, they're beautiful and
they make our legs look super hot, so we're willing
to soldier on. Until of course, we've had one flute
too many and the heels are flung off with wild
abandon -- or worse, stay attached and leave you
with blisters so big and arches that ache so hard
you can't even look at a stiletto for weeks.
Enter mistress Rollasole, the little rollable ballet
flat and saviour of anyone who enjoys dancing (or
standing, walking). Direct from the UK, they are
the real deal -- comfy, sturdy and will fit into your
purse in a snap. Most importantly, they are avail-
able in 4 colours -- black, silver, gold and metallic
pink, and at just $19.95, you can get one of each
so you're always coordinated.
The Christmas gift I'm planning to buy every
female I know is available at rollasole.com.au, or call
1800 020 089 for stockists.
In the swim
Yes, yes. We're all aware bikini season can be terrifying -- especially if you've been hitting the bubbles and
cheese extra hard over winter (it's OK, you're only human). Take it from me: there's nothing better to lure
cowering you out of the corner of your wardrobe than pretty, pretty swimwear and the prospect of -- wait for
it -- friendly and helpful service.
We have brand new boutique Shekki to thank for the groundbreaking idea of sales assistants who actually
assist, with co-owner Leanne Thayer saying that she just wants us to feel welcome in her new store. "We just
want to help them find a great pair of bathers so they feel fabulous when they hit the water."
Leanne spent five years in Broome building a successful swimwear business and she and her sister Carol
have decided to bring the love to Perth.
Expect labels like summer favourites Jet, Seafolly and Sunseeker, as well as fancy pants international
brands like Gottex and Jantzen. Complete the look with their range of casual summer fashion -- what girl
could say no to a caftan?
Shekki is at 32 Kearns Crescent, Applecross. (08) 9364 2030.
