Thankfully, most of us will never have to suffer a wardrobe malfunction – infamous or otherwise – on an international scale. I’ve often wondered where exactly does one go if they need to hide out a bit from the world. To the moon? Seriously, though, we all have those big and little wardrobe mishaps that always seem to happen at THE most inopportune times, don’t they? Perhaps you already use my weapon of choice to fight the misbehavin’ clothes battle and if not, this tip is for you! Hollywood Fashion Tape!
The scenarios are many. The heel that rips the hem of your pants just as you are running out the door. The gaping blouse (why oh why did I eat all that cake last weekend?) The popped button, slipping shoulder, drooping slip, rips, tears and myriad other clothes catastrophes that we just don’t have time to fix. Don’t sew it, friends, tape it!
I was a pinner for a long time – not Pinterest, sillies, pinning clothes! Of course, never did I have the correct size of safety pin. Oh no – there I was rockin’ the too big pin which unceremoniously announced its presence with a blinding glare of silver. Even worse, using those teeny, tiny little gold safety pins and actually believing it would hold a wad of fabric. A dear friend, who shall remain nameless to save the relationship, once actually used a miniscule gold pin on the back of her pants. The pressure of the fabric was just too great, she sat down…you can imagine the rest of THAT story. It’s filed under what was she thinking?? I’ve traded in my safety pins and always have tins of Hollywood Fashion Tape on hand!
The tapes are super easy to use and strong! With adhesive on both sides, they can be applied either directly to the skin or to fabric. The design is great, because one side of each tape is covered with paper that is center-split for easy removal. Just press one side on the adhesive strip to skin or fabric, remove the paper backing, and press the fabric to secure. Easy, quick and really super secure! I used several tapes to “hem” a pant leg, have washed the pants several times and tapes are still holding. I know, it’s so lazy of me, but I’m kind of curious to see just how long those little tapes will hold!
Hollywood Fashion Tape comes in a variety of sizes and they offer other products, all designed to keep our clothes where they belong! My daughter and I are addicted to these little fashion miracles – one of us always has to have a stash. “Got any tapes?” is a common question around my house!
I get my Hollywood Fashion Tape at Joann’s and I find this size works for just about everything! You can also visit Hollywood Fashion Tape and learn more here.
With a pack of Hollywood Fashion Tape on hand, we can toss the M-A-L and ensure our wardrobes just function – and we always look great!
Note: I have no association with Hollywood Fashion Tape…I just love the product and when something works for me, of course I share it with you!
Happy May Day, my dear friends! I’m off the grid until the weekend because a work event needs my help! See everyone on Sunday and thanks for your visit today. Enjoy the rest of your week!
