a chic-geek, american ginger on a mission to create.
A few weeks ago, I was passed along this goodie bag full of Hollywood Fashion Secrets goodies!
Clearly, these fashion emergency (and emergency prevention) products come highly recommended, as the packaging and inserts are covered with quotes, praising their amazing-ocity, from celebrity stylists, fashion experts and journalists. (Including Rachel Zoe and Stacy London)
In addition to all the Hollywood Fashion Secrets goods, I received a copy of the book Secrets of Stylists: An Insider’s Guide to Styling the Stars by Sasha Charnin Morrison.
I was not prepared for the treat I received in this book. I would’ve never heard of it had it not been serendipitously placed in my hands.
Chock-full of insider tips, tricks and plenty of celebrity styling stories, this book is essentially a how-to guide on becoming a stylist.
With this book, I’ve channeled all of my experiences and knowledge about fashion, celebrity, gossip, and styling into one place. This is an in-depth look at the glamorous and gritty world of styling. The Secrets of Stylists is meant to help you-aspiring stylists and fashionistas-understand how much work lies ahead and how rewarding it is to focus on what you love.
In the following pages, you’ll discover all you need to know how to make it in this business. … -Sasha Charnin Morrison, from the Introduction
Needless to say, a fun read and great anytime reference. So let’s explore into the loot:
Some sometimes necessary essentials:
Fashion Tape Shapes
I received 8 pieces of the Skinny (rectagular) shaped tape. Perfect for thin straps on tops or shoes! I got 6 pieces of the Curve shaped tape. Great for keeping strapless dresses, sweetheart necklines and asymmetrical tops covering the girls.
4 Trapezoid shaped pieces of tape. Perfect for securing strapless tops and dresses under the pit. And 6 Wide (rectangular) pieces of tape. Basically great anywhere.
Finally, I received two tin kits: One is a Jean Kit. The other, and more useful, is a Fashion Emergency Kit!
The Fashion Emergency Kit – (featured in/on Marie Claire Magizine, US Magazine and E! Red Carpet) - is the absolute best to keep in your purse for everyday needs or, in my case, my performance bag. In fact, when I was recently on set filming as the 30s burlesque dancer (..previous post..) it was the very first time I made sure to pack this kit of mine with all my other necessities. Contents:
The Jean Kit – (featured in/on Marie Claire Mag., Today Show, Screen Actors Guild Awards) – I guess these tools are supposed to help when you’re jeans just aren’t fitting so great… I would just wear different jeans… thats just me… maybe theres a situation where you have no other option… idk:
That’s all. Lots of useful goodies by Hollywood Fashion Secrets! I was planning on refilling as necessary by ordering off their website however, just the other day, while out and about, I stopped into my local JoAnn’s Fabrics for various craft and sewing supplies and stumbled upon this:
Hollywood Fashion Secrets: apparently coming to you via your local craft store… who knew?
