MyTagAlongs hits the evening-shindig circuit this season with the Little Black Dis-tress Kit ($25 CAN/$23 US), a zippered pouch filled with every fix one might need in a last-minute fashion emergency. Got a deodorant smear on your dress? No problem -- buff it off the fabric with a deodorant-remover sponge. Got a loose hem? Stitch it up quick with needle and thread. Dreading the painful pumps? Pop in a pair of ball-of-foot cushions. Chipped your polish? Whip out the Nail Polish Remover Travel Wipe. The stash also contains a deodorant wipe and makeup-remover wipe, a pair of stay-up black stockings, and a 911 tin that houses double-sided fashion tape, adhesive bandages, a nail file, tweezers, flossers and a hair elastic.
Of course the kit can come in handy in times other than the holiday-party stretch. Pre-meeting snags at the office, desk-to-dinner plans, travel... you get the idea.

Seems like the only thing this kit can't do is find you a date. At least you can go it alone knowing you've got your style details all sewn up.
