I’ve only been in the workforce for a few years, but I’ve already had my fair share of wardrobe malfunctions – the kind that eventually force you to keep a stockpile of supplies at your desk. Take it from me, keep these items at your desk to avoid the embarrassment and annoyance of wardrobe malfunctions.
No, not for touching up your manicure, but for nylon runs! If you see a tear forming, dab some clear nail polish all around the run and it won’t tear anymore.
You never know when a seam will decide to rip, and it’s usually at the most inopportune time. Keep some emergency thread and a needle close-by to sew your day back together.
I can’t even count the number of times I’ve used superglue to fix a malfunction. A purse handle, a thick cuff or seam, a pants button, the list goes on. Keeping a bottle in your drawer will come in handy more times than you’d think.
Not only does this keep you warm, but it doubles as a cover-all when things go awry. I keep one on my chair and it has been useful for more than just warmth.
These are great for button up shirts that don’t stay closed between buttons or a neckline that won’t stay in place.
You don’t need me to tell you these will always be a staple in any wardrobe-emergency-kit.
