Hollywood Fashion Tape – secret of the stars

everything in it’s place when hitting the Red Carpet or appearing on stage, every person that has ever had these situations deals with how to keep everything in it’s place….I’m talking about the clothing.

One of the best little items that a girl can keep at home, in the office and in the purse/briefcase is Hollywood Fashion Tape.  This is quitely simply double sided sticky tape that is meant for clothing and skin.

It works miracles!….Try taping your bra straps to a sundress or other top so that they don’t peek out.  Maybe your blouse is a little too deep for the office…a little fashion tape in the right cleavage area and voila!….

your top becomes modest.  It also works great to hold a blouse that is gapping or an emergency hemline fix!

Hollywood Fashion Tape® is the easy-to-use, clear double-stick, “do everything” apparel and body tape!

Hollywood Fashion Tape’s specially formulated adhesive is gentle on skin, hypoallergenic and leaves no residue on fabrics.  The clear tape doesn’t cover up the skin’s natural color and is more discreet and fabric-friendly than safety pins.

How does it work?  You get 36 pre-cut, 3-inch disposable strips (3” x ½” actual size) in each box. Each strip of tape contains a removable backing on each side. You simply peel the backing from one side of the tape, press the tape firmly to your skin or fabric, remove the other backing, and apply the item to be secured.  It’s as easy as peel, stick and go!

Black Friday – truth or dare?

I don’t know about the rest of you…but Black Friday seems to have become a one heck of a craziness!….

All the big box stores are finding a way to “out do” the other by holding sales events at crazy hours….thus driving the Black Friday masses to go to great lengths to participate in these “special sales events”.

Maybe that’s not where the “real” action is…maybe the “real” action is in the privately owned business down the street that TRULY has some good deals going on….and will certainly be appreciative of your hard earned dollars.

Maybe we should start an anti-black friday club?…naahh…it would never work…let the masses go to the big box….then the rest of us can really enjoy our moments at our favorite places!

cheers!

New in 2010 – the UGG Bailey Button Triplet

Because most of us that own UGG boots are probably getting bored with the original Classic boots that we purchased….because UGG  refuses to go away quietly…and because Americans have a love/hate relationship with the cozy, “aahhh…relief for our weary feet”  styles that women of all ages wear, UGG has again given us something new to desire.  The updated  traditional style of our Classic Tall boot has now been detailed  with wooden UGG® logo buttons and elastic band closures. The women’s UGG® Bailey Button Triplet can either be worn up or cuffed down adding a little variety depending on your style.

Of Course,  all boots in the Classic Bailey  Button  Collection feature a soft foam insole covered with genuine sheepskin and have a molded EVA light and flexible outsole designed for amazing comfort with every step.

All the classic colors are available and a few that are definitely “not so classic”….

This style tends to run a size large. We recommend ordering a size smaller from your typical shoe size. If you are in-between sizes, we recommend ordering one-half size down.
