What I wore - 1 fashion secret from me!



This may seem like a silly thing to share BUT it's got to make a difference to someone out there! 
It's one of my fashion secrets because well.....I don't tell people I do this so it's a secret! (lol)


Please tell me I'm not the only one that deals with a pair of pants or jeans that buttons at the top and part of that buttoned piece for some reason or the other just sticks out!? Do you know what I"m talking about?

Just like this right? And when you wear a top over it it makes it poke out.



I think one of the last areas we want to draw attention to is there and heaven forbid we look like we have an "out-y" belly button when we DON'T! :) 

So here's my secret/solution that I use when my jeans "stick out" and I want to smooth it over: MASKING TAPE! 

I take a tiny piece of masking tape and TAPE down the curled piece that is sticking out. 


Now my tshirt, blouse or any top can have a smooth look! 


Hopefully this helps someone out there!

  2. I struggle with this too and it drives me crazy! I've used the double sided seamstress tape for lots of other fashion fixes but have not thought of this. Thanks for the tip.

  15. This has always bothered me too. I loved the maternity clothes when I was pregnant just because they never made my shirts poke out like that. lol.

  20. This is genius! Seriously, 3 of the 5 pairs of pants I wore last week did this and I couldn't help but notice every.single.day.

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. ha ha - you just pull the tape back :) trust me I've done it many times

    2. It is a brillant and simple idea! Does it restick? Or do you need a new piece? I hate when it happens too! I hadn't thought of a solution until I saw this on Pinterest. Now you've got my brain working...how about a simple sew on snap near the corner for a more permanent fix? Do you think that would work? I think I'm going to have to try your tape solution until I get off my lazy butt and get to trying sewing on a snap!
