Your Must-Have Wardrobe Essentials!


No matter how old you are, it's the perfect time to invest in a few simple items that will make getting dressed so much easier. Take it from me, these pieces will practically change your life!

Hollywood Fashion Tape, $6.95 for Pack of 36 Strips

You're going to have to believe me on this one, but EVERY stylist that I know carries a box of this tape in their tool kit! I personally always have two pieces of it in my purse at all times, because I just never know when a fashion emergency might occur. This clear double-sided tape is amazing for keeping a plunging neckline from slipping too far, and it will also prevent a button-front shirt from gaping open. You will probably be shocked at how many uses you come up with!

Band-Aid "Active Flex Blister Block Stick," $6.99

You just can't have a good time when your feet hurt, and this incredible product will help to keep blisters at bay. Just apply the clear stick to your footsies whenever you put on a new pair of shoes, and you'll be able to dance all night.

Fashion Forms "U-Plunge Convertible Bra" in Black, $28

This bra looks like a crazy torture device, but let me tell you, it's amazing! The deep plunge lets you wear it with V-neck and low-cut blouses and dresses, and the convertible straps can be fastened as a conventional bra, a halter, or even a criss-cross style.

Foot Petals "Sole Solutionz" Kit, $29.95

You know the drill: You find the cutest pair of shoes, and when you get home and actually try to wear them out, they just don't feel right. Well, thanks to the folks at Foot Petals, you're in luck! This set includes their Tips Toes, Heavenly Heelz, Strappy Strips, Killer Kushionz and Sole Stopperz products, which are all adhesive-backed. You can stick them on straps that rub your foot the wrong way, on heels that need more cushioning, and on the bottom of soles that are too slippery.

Spanx "Reversible Tight-End Tights" in Black/Brown, $32

These tights are my cold-weather staple! Not only are they great for slimming out the tummy, but the best part is that they're reversible – so you get two colors in one! They're also really, really durable, so you don't have to worry about any holes or runs.

Bordeaux "Skinny’z Flattering Cami," $63

Even if you are super-skinny, it's nice to have a failsafe item that smoothes out lumps and bumps. This camisole is made out of lightweight, stretchy material so it is super easy to wear, and it has a breathable mesh control panel that slenderizes the waistline. It's terrific under slim-fitting sweaters and tees!
