Ladies, let’s face it. Looking good takes work. Sometimes we take hours to get our makeup just right and figure out what we want to wear for the day. Then, just when we think we’re in the clear, our worst fashion nightmares come true and all that time and money go to waste. Worry no longer! Here are a few easy, fast and cheap options to fix those pesky fashion problems.

Sinking Heels

Summer time means weddings and other occasions taking place outside in the warm weather. It also means that awful sinking (no pun intended) feeling you get when you try to walk through the grass in your favorite pair of heels. Solemates is here to help with that. The Solemates High Heeler just pops on to the end of your heels to stabilize and protect your shoes. They come in different colors and sizes to accommodate every type of stiletto or kitten heel.

Deodorant marks

It’s always embarrassing to find deodorant marks on your clothes after leaving home. You immediately want to wet the spot to fix it, but it can make the problem worse. These sponges by Miss Oops take care of that problem fast and are reusable. Just rub the mark with the dry sponge and it’ll disappear within moments.

Oily Face

You know those oil blotters you buy to help when you T-zone starts to get a little shiny? Forget about them. You can get them for free in just about any bathroom. Go into a stall and tear off a piece from a toilet seat cover and it does the same trick as blotting paper.

Skirt is too long

Don’t have time to take your new skirt to the nearest tailor? That’s not a problem. Use double-sided adhesive tape to hem the skirt up to the length you desire and seal it down with an iron. It’s an easy fix for last-minute moments and temporary so you can get it fixed professionally later.

Wrinkled Shirt

Maybe you’re running a little late for something and you forgot to iron your cotton or linen shirt that you plan to wear for that day. Well, if you also plan to straighten your hair then you can also quickly rid of those wrinkles in your shirt. Make sure your straightening iron is on a low setting before using it to iron out those little spots on your shirt. I wouldn’t suggest this for more delicate fabrics.

Sweaty Feet

No one like a case of sweaty, stinky feet in the summer but we all have them. What’s even worse is when they ruin our favorite pair of flats or sandals. Just peel and stick a pair of these microfiber insoles in your favorite shoes from Summer Soles to help alleviate the problem. Nobody will ever know your secret since they are so thin and come all different colors.

Unexpected Rain

The weather in Florida can be very unpredictable. One moment it’s bright and sunny and the next it’s raining cats and dogs. Hunter is there to save the day with their foldable willies. Keep them in your bag and you can easily switch your shoes to accommodate the weather and then switch back when needed.
