Just when I think I have exhausted my mom's closet for vintage treasures, I find some booty. Not too long ago I found this silk aquamarine tank. It's oh so Alexander Wang Spring '09. And the best part? It was free! Upon closer inspection, the tank got even cooler.I found these little tabs on the inside of the straps that snapped closed. I hadn't seen one of these for years. And, aha! They nestle in your bra straps so they don't go AWOL down your shoulder. Brilliant. But this made me realize, whatever happened to the bra-strap secret snap? We pay good money for designer tops and so many of mine don't have these. I did find one on a J.Crew top, though. I would suggest making one if you have bra-strap slippage, but it's actually a pretty intricate little detail. I vote to bring back the bra-strap secret snap!
I hate rogue bra straps as much as the next girl — except when it's an on-purpose style statement, of course. Sometimes they're just not appropriate, and it's times like these that The Strapper ($14) comes in handy. Weave your bra strap through The Strapper and it won't fall off your shoulder, peek out of your sleeveless top, or show when it's not meant to be seen.
One package supplies you a black, beige, and white Strapper, and a portion of the proceeds got to the LI Breast Cancer Action Coalition.
