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! 
I’ll be sharing & linking up here

  1. I hate it when it sticks out like that! Thanks for the tip!

  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.

  3. This was bugging me so much just yesterday. Love it.

  4. going to grab some masking tape and tuck it in the jean drawer now!

  5. Smart! I hate having a pokey pant corner!

  6. What a great idea! I have so many shirts with tiny holes in this area because of my jeans sticking out.

  7. genius! i actually get holes in my shirts right there from that part sticking out so much!


  8. Genius!!! why haven’t I ever thought of this! I follow you on google+ and love, LOVE your blog! http://www.CallMePMc.com

  10. This is so funny and awesome at the same time!

  12. Aha! Thanks for the tip! I get so frustrated with this!

  13. Great idea! Promise I’ll keep your secret safe.

  14. great idea. a real “duh” moment as to why i never tried this myself.

  15. Haha, too funny! But true. This happens to me all the time. Will have to try it out. 🙂

  16. 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.

  17. That’s pretty clever and a SIMPLE solution! 🙂
