Fashion Disaster SOS

Fashion disasters can happen to the most stylish of us. Most times, it is completely out of hands, and there is nothing we could have done to stop the disaster from happening. I have experience quite a few fashion disasters in my lifetime already; a zip giving way, a broken heel, torn tights, and so many others. The annoying part of these fashion disasters is that they happen in the most awkward places. My heel broke at work once, I had to walk around bare feet until I got spare flats from a co-worker. My zip gave way at a party once, on the dancing floor, imagine that? Thankfully, not many people noticed but it was still embarrassing.

We can’t always avoid these fashion disasters but we can solve them quickly. Here are some fashion disaster SOS that you may find useful while out and about –

 

Broken Heel

If your high heel snaps into 2, coat 1 piece with a glue such as Shoe Goo Glue, at the site of the break and try to attach the other section. Also, stay off your feet as much as you can until you can change into another pair of shoes. Always safe to carry a pair of flats in your bag or leave in your car when you are rocking high heels. You never know when you might need it.

 

Red Wine Stain

Soda water is the best thing to use to get rid of a red wine stain on a white cotton dress. Gently sponging off a red wine stain with soda water would get the stain off.

 

Dull Shoes

Smear a tiny amount of petroleum jelly over your shoes. It would give your dull shoes a shine.

 

Chewing Gum Stain

Get rid of the chewing gum with a knife, hold an ice-cube over the stain until it hardens. This will enable you scrape off the excess gum. Then sponge the area with hot water. This will remove the chewing gum stain completely.

 

Stubborn Zips

If a zipper won’t budge for whatever reason, run a leap pencil along the teeth of the zip. If that doesn’t work, then rub a bar of soap or candle wax onto the problem area. With a little manipulation, the zipper should come unstuck.

 

Rain Marks on Suede

Use a nail file or rough pencil eraser to gently get rid of rain marks on a suede garment.

 

Loose Button

Dot the top of a loose button with a clear nail polish to stop the threads from loosening further and the button from falling off.

 

These are my tried and tested fashion disaster SOS. Have you tried any of these? Do you have any tried and tested fashion disaster SOS? Please share in the comment section below.

  1. I never knew how to get red wine of white clothing, but now i do! These little tips are great and ill definitely be sharing them in the group chat with my girls later on so they can use them too! XX

  2. Awesome tips! Carrying a pair of flat shoes is a must when I wear heels because honestly, they either break or I end up with a blister. I’mm be trying the pencil zip tip next time I have a stubborn zip that refuses to move!! Thanks for sharing x

  3. Some amazing tips here that I’ve never thought to try. I always use nail varnish on tights ladders. My flip flop broke recently in New York, there was no saving it so I had to buy another pair. Jo x

  4. Zips are a nightmare. I try to avoid clothing with them in though it’s not that easy.

    As for tights if I am wearing a nice pair (I don’t use them often) I just tend to carry a spare pair with me as I always catch them on something.

    How I don’t know but I always seem to end up with a hole, hence why I don’t wear nice quality tights top often. Too expensive
