I am thrilled about this new partnership with the Hollywood Fashion Secrets brand and team.

HFS was founded on a similar share-the-secret idea more than a decade ago when a gaping cardigan was closed with double-sided tape by an industry insider and friend of the founders. This "aha moment" has now led to an array of Style Essential products a collection of 30-plus items featuring such must-have products like the Hip Hugger "back-belt" to close the common back-of-jeans gap; Boot Straps for a smooth look when wearing the tuck-in trend; Silicone CoverUp nipple covers important to "deperkify" when going braless or wearing an unpadded bra; Bra Converting Clips to instantly convert the traditional bra into a cross-back style, as well as Deodorant Removing Sponge, Sweater Saver and more. The team continues to innovate every day to bring new products forward including the just-launched Eye Makeup and Nail Polish Remover Swabs and purse-ready Perfume Atomizer smart new beauty essentials.
