How to Build a Fashion First Aid Kit
As women, we are very familiar with having a fashion crisis at the worst possible time! There is nothing worse than having a fashion emergency without having any way to fix it. Well fear no longer ladies because I have the perfect tricks for you! I easily made a fashion first aid kit so I will no longer have wardrobe malfunctions and you can too! These are some of the things I put together from my personal experiences. (You can find most of these products for cheap at places like Target, Walmart or even the Dollar Store.)
SUPER GLUE. Put a dot of super glue on a loose bead or sequin that you don’t have time to sew back on. You can find mini bottles of super glue that can easily fit into any clutch or purse.
DOUBLE SIDED TAPE. This is something every woman should always have in their purse. In a pinch, you can fix falling hemlines, remove lint, and you can use it to stop your shirt from revealing a little too much. It is easy to remove from clothing and your skin. Basically every department store carries this in stock and they are cheap!
BLACK SHARPIE. Scuffed your black heels? Use a Sharpie to fill it in. This also works if you’ve chipped a dark manicure. I’ve had those moments where I realize there is a bleach spot on my leggings or black shirt. Just color it in with the sharpie and no one will ever know!
HANGER FOAM. Stash a piece of foam from the dry cleaner in your bag- it removed deodorant, food, and makeup stains on fabric.
CLEAR POLISH. Got a run in your tights? A light coat of clear polish will ensure they don’t rip even more.
DRYER SHEETS. Keep one in your purse to kill static-cling from your clothing and even your hair!
WET NAPS. These clean dirty shoes, spot-clean clothes, loosen too-tight rings, and clean your hands in a jiff if you aren’t near a sink.
BABY POWDER. There is nothing worse than being out in the sun sweating and having your hair get greasy. Take some baby powder and sprinkle it onto your roots. Rub it into your hair and it will instantly get rid of grease! (Be careful if you have black/dark hair. Sometimes your roots will become ashy, just use a smaller amount and rub in really well)
