Hollywood Fashion Tape Review

Use Fashion Tape to Prevent Wardrobe Malfunction


Hollywood Fashion Tape, the absolute best fashion tape for fixing wardrobe emergencies before they turn into wardrobe malfunctions!
Fix wardrobe emergencies before they turn into
serous wardrobe malfunctions!
Had any wardrobe malfunction close calls lately? It happens! I've found the absolute best fashion tape for preventing gaping spaces between blouse buttons, fixing straps that slip, and even repairing hems. Hollywood Fashion Tape is the perfect solution for wardrobe emergencies!

I first found this wonderful product when I put off trying on an evening dress that I had bought for a cruise. I knew it didn't fit quite right, but I didn't realize how much help I was going to need with this dress until it was too late.

The straps were the culprit. One was wide and ruffly, the other narrow and just not placed exactly where it should have been. When I finally tried on the dress then adjusted the wide, ruffled strap to fit properly, the narrow strap on the other side simply would not stay up. And vice versa. No matter how I adjusted the dress, there was obviously a strap problem - and a danger of a serious, embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.

The solution? I googled it, of course. In doing so, I found THE one best solution for all types of potential wardrobe problems and malfunctions, Hollywood Fashion Secrets Double Stick Fashion Tape Strips. Fortunately I'm an Amazon Prime customer, so I had it in my hot little hands in two days, which left me with one day to give it a try and make it work. So try I did and wow, was I impressed! Why hadn't I discovered this great tape years ago? (The answer to that is that my normal wardrobe of t-shirts in the summer and sweatshirts in the winter rarely pose those particular threats.)

Bottom line? The fashion tape worked like magic. I used it on both straps and I was able to breathe easily the entire evening of our event without even the threat of a slip. Since then I've found lots of additional uses for the tape. How did I ever manage before without it?

Better than sliced bread? I'm serious, it is! Hollywood Fashion Tape gets the Sassy Susan Seal of Approval and a spot in my closet, my dresser drawer, and my purse.

Remember the Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction? If only Janet Jackson had had Hollywood Fashion Tape!

How to use Hollywood Fashion Tape


Peel the backing from one side of the tape strip. Press the tape firmly onto your skin or the fabric. Remove the other backing section and press onto the surface to be secured. Amazingly, the backing is easy to separate from the tape and the tape sticks very firmly. When you're ready to remove it, the tape pulls off easily without damaging the fabric. And it doesn't irritate skin. Truly, this tape is amazing!

Use it to:

  • Tame slippery straps
  • Close gaping gaps in necklines or between blouse buttons
  • Repair hanging hems or snagged leggings or pantyhose
  • Flatten flappy belt ends
  • Secure scarves
  • Keep wrap dresses or skirts from unwrapping

Order the tape in a multi-pack. Carry one in your purse, keep one in your desk, store one with your wardrobe accessories, and keep one in your suitcase if you travel a lot. Put them everywhere. Trust me, you will use them.

Hollywood Fashion Tape is a wardrobe accessory that I had no idea I needed - until I did. Bet you'll think of plenty more uses for yours.

P.S. Fashion Tape is essential to have on hand for proms, weddings, and other special occasions. Makes a great stocking stuffer for a teenage girl, too!

Mini Dresses no Matter Your Age, Just Add Leggings!

Leggings - on Amazon
There's Only One Golden Rule When it Comes to Leggings .... And No Matter Your Age, You Can Wear Leggings if You Follow this One Golden Rule...
"Be sure the Top you chose to wear with your leggings completely covers your behind"
And guess what?

No matter your age, you can still wear a Mini Dress! 

Yes that's right, YOU can. Simply wear your mini-dress with leggings or narrow fitted pants and be sure your Mini Dress follows the same golden rule .... that it covers the behind.

As we get older we tend to think there's no possible way we could
Try this Mini-dress with Leggings
 EVER wear a short dress again. In fact, for some, it's so engraved in the mind, that short, cute dresses are completely disregarded as a wardrobe choice. However, a mini-dress is merely a fancier top isn't it, so why disregard it.


How About You? 

If you're over 50 have you been guilty of passing by cute dresses in the mall or via online shops thinking, "my time has come and gone and I'll never be able to wear this style again" ??

Well stop that stinkin' thinkin' today! You CAN wear mini dresses, just add a pair of leggings. 


Try Red Leggings with this Mini Dress
If you prefer a more conservative look, try to build an outfit along these lines:
  • Choose solid dark colored leggings (Black, Navy, Dark Brown)
  • Choose a mini-dress that has a higher neck
  • Choose a mini-dress that has sleeves (long or short)
  • Choose a mini-dress that compliments your shape - as an example, if you have an hour glass frame, try an A-lined mini-dress or tapered dress. If you have a full upper frame, try a mini dress that slightly flows away from the body
  • Add a nice pair of knee high boots, and if you have to, get a pair with a sensible heel. There are many pretty knee high boots with low or flat heels. Keep the color of the boot dark as well, like the leggings: That'll help your look flow in a nice lean way without breaking up the length of the leg. However, if you happen to have very long legs, you may be able to get away with a contrasting colored knee high boot
  • You can also match the legging color with the mini-dress, as an example, red leggings with a red mini-dress
  • If you have to have color in your outfit, try to keep the color in the Top and choose black, dark brown or navy blue leggings
  • Stay away from busy patterned leggings
  • If the outfit calls for it, accessorize your outfit with scarfs, jackets, belts and jewelry - Accessories add another level for age appropriateness 
When choosing leggings, there are numerous features to consider: Leggings with feet, leggings with stirrups to help keep them in place, or traditional designs without feet. Deciding which style works best depends upon the shoe you're planning to match with the outfit as a whole. 


So go ahead, stop limiting your clothing choices and wear something that makes you feel good!
