The Tipping List
No More Fashion Faux Pas
These quick fixes help you prevent a fashion disaster
When it comes to fashion no-nos, deodorant marks on a black shirt and VPL (visible panty line, for those who aren’t in the know) are among the worst offenders. If you’ve ever wondered why you don’t see celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Halle Berry and Jennifer Aniston being mocked on the pages of Us Weekly for committing these style sins, the credit goes to Miss Oops. Who is this Miss Oops, you ask, and how can you enlist her help? A must-have in every stylist’s tool kit, the portable Rescue Sponge buffs away deodorant and makeup marks. Another fashionista favorite are the Nundies that stick to the inside of your pants when panties (and going commando, ew, don’t pull a Britney!) just aren’t an option.
I’ve used both, and I’m happy to report that the Rescue Sponge comes in a pack of two so you can keep one at home and one in your bag (great for when you’re shopping and trying on). As for the Nundies, I laughed when I opened the box and saw the tulip-shaped stickers and wondered if the petal end goes toward the front or the back – then I read the directions and learned it goes toward the front. The adhesive kept the Nundies in place all day and the fabric was so soft I didn’t even know it was there – how liberating!
