Styling, fas­ci­na­tors and shoes

THE first thing Jac­kee Warry of DJ’s Shoes said was stockings.

Jac­kee was agree­ing with Amanda Rose be­fore she even knew she was.

“Most im­por­tantly, make sure your out­fit matches but put a pair of stockings on, they just com­plete the out­fit.”

“These days you can get stockings for $15 and and they are much better than fake tan.”

Owning Biloela’s lo­cal shoe store, Jac­kee knows a thing or two about shoes and styling even though she won’t ad­mit it.

“It is just a mat­ter of find­ing the right out­fit,” she said.

In the shoe depart­ment, Jac­kee of­fered some top tips.

“If you want to wear a stiletto heel, get your­self a heel stop­per,” she said.

“Other than that wear a block heel.”

And for those who have aching feet.

“If you have burn­ing on the balls of your feet, get your­self some gel pads,” Jac­kee said.

Wear­ing heels isn’t the be all and end all in to­day’s fashion.

“These days you don’t need a heel, you can wear a glitzy, sparkly flat,” Jac­kee said.

“And a lot of peo­ple do.” For Jac­kee, when she is choos­ing her out­fit, she choses her fas­ci­na­tor first.

“I am the com­plete op­po­site, I buy the fas­ci­na­tor first and then the dress,” she said.

“Some­times it is better to go with a dress that is a plain colour.”

Jac­kee said the styling can be the colour­ful ad­di­tion to an out­fit.

“There is no such thing as match­ing your shoes to your bag any more,” she said.

“The fas­ci­na­tor can be the pop of colour if the dress is plain.”

“Or pop of colour in the shoes.”

Over the last few months, Jac­kee has been sell­ing shoes, fas­ci­na­tors, bags and ac­ces­sories like crazy.

“We have had heaps of peo­ple come in,” she said.

The last few weeks and the lead-up to this week has been the busiest.

“This place was chocker block full and now it is all gone,” Jac­kee said.

“We get a lot of change of plans or the dress hasn’t ar­rived.”

Many cus­tomers have

been com­ing through on Jac­kee’s DJ’s Shoes Facebook page.

“I have put a lot of things aside for peo­ple out of town who will pick it up on their way through,” she said.

These peo­ple have been com­ing far and wide.

“I have had peo­ple from Glad­stone, Ta­room, Roma, so it is re­ally out-of-town­ers,” she said.

This year, Jac­kee has seen some com­mon colours sell­ing.

“We have had a lot of nude, navy and pale pinks,” she said.

“Mostly nude, it goes with ev­ery­thing.”

Jac­kee said she asks most cus­tomers to bring their dress in so she can match colours ex­actly.

“Reds and or­anges are the hard­est to match, you have to be very care­ful to get them right,” was her part­ing advice.
