7 Ways to Fix a Wardrobe Malfunction with Office Supplies

I actually woke up to my alarm clock today (the first one), took a shower, got dressed, threw on the perfect outfit, and even had time to delight in a cream cheese bagel for breakfast. Nothing could go wrong on this divine morning. Not until I took a few steps into the office and my sandals just fell apart! I dragged my feet to my desk like a disappointed child dragging his feet in the sand after being forced to leave the beach too early.

I’ve heard the horror stories but now I was a victim of a wardrobe malfunction. So I used the stapler to fasten my straps and was all set! This had me thinking, I couldn’t possibly be the only one who resorted to stationary before they were able to get their clothes repaired. What happens when your clothes give out right before a meeting or presentation? There has to be a quick solution to save the day. So here are tips you should keep in mind if you ever have a wardrobe malfunction.
