Have you joined the ItGirl Squad yet? It’s the only way that you can shop our exclusive Fab Finds and nab them for less.
Double sided tape – sometimes called fashion tape. Don’t you HATE IT when “the girls” won’t stay put inside of low cut top or dress? Let’s face it, as women, we have the option of putting it all out there, but I personally like the intrigue behind leaving something to the imagination. The last thing I want to do is keep adjusting myself while I’m out and about.
It completely defeats the purpose of wearing the OOTD or night. This transparent, double-stick sided product also serves other multi purposes. It can fake or remedy a hem that’s come loose, collect unsightly fabric fuzzies, keep layers under wraps, adjust a wayward collar, neaten belt overhangs, do away with bulky pockets, and close blouse gaps.
Hacks | Nipple Covers
Nipple covers. Yes, they’re an absolute must-have. If it’s beachside, an editorial fashion shoot, Coachella (or maybe the club), then okay. But let’s not attend a function where we’re posing as human weather trackers, displaying how cold it is in the room. Brrrr…
What Types of Nipple Covers Are There?
Silicone Nipple Covers
Girl. There are quite a few nipple covers for us to choose from. We can go with silicone nipple covers), which are self-adhesive and appear most natural. It’s fab for sheer or very thin fabrics. To clean, gently hand wash and let air dry. Don’t soak them. You want to preserve the tackiness so that they stay reusable.
A word about covers – keeping nipple covers in place – It’s best to base this decision on what you plan to wear. The self-adhesive nipple covers are perfect if you are wearing a loose top or dress to prevent the cover from slipping.
However, if you are going to wear the cover as padding beneath your bra, or if you are wearing a tight top, go for a nipple cover without any adhesive.
REMOVING DEODORANT STAINS FROM BLACK CLOTHES
Cutting straight to the chase on exactly what it does, is the Hollywood Deodorant Removing Sponge – So, it’s not just removing deodorant stains from black clothes. It could be removing deodorant in general, and all without a drop of h2O. It touts the ability to remove pesky pet hairs as well as ridding yourself of make-up along the neckline, definite pluses.
That Magic Eraser is it. Just when you think that it’s only used for household cleaning jobs, it goes and proves us all wrong:
- Utilize it by giving your favorite white sneakers or white shoes a cleaning.
- It will also clean smudges from your iPhone or the glass surface on other electronic devices. Use a little water and wring it out well first though.
- It polishes gold jewelry. Rub off the tarnish (using the dry eraser sponge). Use a bit of soap and water to wipe down, and then pat dry.
- Gets rid of hair dye from countertops (trust me when I tell you this).
Tide to Go Stain Remover
I am such a slob at times. To look at me, one would think that I am poised and the picture of elegance. But If there is a plate of really good food placed in front of me, then it all goes out of the window.
Whatever I am wearing at the time is prone to become a casualty. If you’re at home or in something that you don’t care about getting soiled, fine. But being out and about with a stain is no Bueno. For Save an outfit 911 and more, save yourself some clothing heartache with this one.
Underarm Sweat Pads
Sometimes we sweat. Sometimes we don’t want to sweat on our pretty clothes. Enter, underarm sweat pads created to save the day. There’s an adhesive to keep them in place and no sweat stains. You might have to change a time or two if you sweat lots. No problem, because they come in bulk.
Febreeze to go
Why would a fashionista need Febreeze to go? You might ask. Well perhaps if you’ve been in contact with a chain smoker. Maybe you just want to save some cash at the dry cleaners and give your worn sweaters a quick refresh. Just leaving the gym and want to make sure that your gym bag doesn’t wreak with BO? You have the fix.
Hacks | Static Guard
Static Guard spray in the travel size is a Gawwd-send. How annoying is it when you skirt or dress clings to your leg like it’s afraid to go down like a sinking Titanic? But guess what?
Not only does it alleviate static cling, but it also will help to fight that irksome hair static when you wear scarves.
Actually, if you’re having hair static problems in any sense, you can spray a bit on your brush, brush through, and the problem is solved.
Downy Wrinkle Relaxer
Downy Wrinkle Relaxer. None wants to appear as if they crawled out of bed in the clothing that they slept in. And just because an article of clothing looks like it can get away with not getting a proper ironing—doesn’t mean that the rest of the world will agree with you.
This product helps to eliminate and or reduce wrinkles. So, if you do nothing else, do yourself a favor and give this a few sprays in the direction of your garments to make your life easier.
Calvin Klein Women’s Invisible Thong
Before you raise your perfectly threaded eyebrows at me, wait. Somedays, a chick rushes out of the house, out the front door, hurriedly barreling towards her destination to find—that you can see right through what she’s wearing.
Or sometimes you can be dressed to the nines, and think that you are looking great, but your panty lines are showing.
This is where this choice comes in. Ladies, if you have a spouse or significant other, you should probably explain this to them in advance. #nocheatingaccusationsplease
Sewing Repair Kit
Hey. Buttons fall off, seams come apart, hems loosen (although there’s a great no-sew product for that) Do you know how we always say that we’re going to get something again and again, but don’t? This one takes minimal effort, and you’ll be thanking yourself for finally coming through.
Earring backs. Ladies. I will not tell a lie. It’s worth switching up on earring back sometimes. How enraged (okay, so it’s a strong word. This might just describe me, but I’m fine with it) do we get when we lose an earring that we adore?
And how upset do we get when we put on gorgeous earrings that can’t be seen because it hangs on our ears in the wrong way? These dilemmas are so solved here.
Clear Nail Polish
Who knew that clear nail polish was more than a transparent glaze over another nail cover? Do you believe that it can:
- Prolong the life of your fashion jewelry accessories
- Stop your shoelaces from fraying in its tracks
- Stop a run in your stockings from getting worse
- Stop your nails from breaking further
- Secure loose buttons
- Reattach cheap gems to jewelry
- Keep your eyeglasses screws in place (apply a little and tighten the screw as you normally would)
