Â Â Â Â Â Showing a little skin is probably the most fun about summer fashions.Â Though last summer as I was sitting at the Roosevelt Hotel Bar, tugging on my very cute and equally economical strapless dress from Sarah Jessica Parkerâ€™s Bitten line, I encountered the one obstacle to selective skin showing: keeping the parts available for â€œprivate viewing onlyâ€ private.Â
Â Â Â Â Â I was sitting at the bar in the hotel because while the charity Iâ€™m involved with does spectacular things for children, it throws horrifically boring parties.Â I escaped the boredom of the ballroom and was watching the game, enjoying a cocktail and some good conversation with a young lady next to me while adjusting and readjusting the top of my dress.Â
Â Â Â Â Â Canâ€™t remember exactly what we were chatting about, but she changed the subject, looked pointedly at my chest and said, â€œYou know, I have something for that.â€Â I had no idea what she was talking about.Â Which my blank stared clearly indicated.Â She explained, â€œI have tape that could keep that dress in place so you donâ€™t have to worry about it.â€
Â Â Â Â Â She whipped few samples of the tape out of her bag.Â I had to ask, â€œDo you always keep double-sided sticky-tape with you?â€Â Turns out she didâ€”and with good reasonâ€”she manages the west and mid-west areas of the company â€œHollywood Fashion Tapeâ€ and their motto is â€œKeep your clothes on!â€Â
Â Â Â Â Â We exchanged cards.Â I found out her name is Shauna Lang, and a week later Shauna sent me a package with a whole assortment of her companyâ€™s goodies!
Â Â Â Â Â The package contained as many tricks as a Park Avenue plastic surgeon, sans-the cost and the pain, to help reconfigure oneâ€™s figure.Â Whether youâ€™re looking to hike them up, tape them down, maximize or minimize it was in thereâ€”as well as some neat products for your face. Looking at her website the company also has products if youâ€™d like to change the shape of the terrain on your bottom half.
Â Â Â Â Â Since discovering her companyâ€™s products, clothes I thought I couldnâ€™t wear, I can and do, and clothes I already liked, I absolutely love.Â Using a few of her tricks under my clothes has given a whole new life to much of my wardrobeâ€”and in this recession who could ask for anything more?
