UGH! The sheer disappointment when you order something online and it doesn’t FIT! It’s like.. the biggest anti climax in the world. It’s really really annoying.
This lady from Melbourne, Australia may have saved us all with this ‘genius’ fashion back!
All it requires is an ill fitting dress and a hairclip..
Sharna Horwood, 25, said she was left very upset when her dress arrived in the post, and just didn’t want to fit at all.
She tried and tried to sort it but the dress had ‘annoying’ silky spaghetti straps that kept falling down around her shoulders… big no!
Sharna couldn’t bare to part with the dress so she was all about altering it and didn’t stop until she’d solved her problem!
Sharna came up with a genius idea that managed to transform her $90AUD (£50) ‘Born To Be Chic’ dress.
After browsing for a while, she came across hairclips for just $5AUD (£2.80) and decided to put them to the test.
Amazingly, the straps were held together at the back with the clips and looked very stylish.
“I bought the dress online, and I really loved it. But when it arrived, it just didn’t fit right. I planned to wear it to an upcoming event with a strapless bra. But the problem was that the spaghetti straps on the dress kept falling down.
“No matter what I did, I’d constantly need to pull them back up onto my shoulders. It was frustrating, so I knew I had to do something if I wanted to keep the dress.
“I originally had a hook and eye in the back, but it didn’t look nice. So, I decided to go to my local Kmart department store and see if I could find something to help.
“I came across these nice hairclips and it just clicked. They were only $5 (£2.80) for three, so I bought them and took them home.
“They worked perfectly, and it looked like it was just meant to be a part of the dress. The colour suited and blended in well. I was so happy to be able to fix my dress at such a bargain.”
Obviously, the second she shared the photos online, they quickly went viral. She’s helped so many people!
“The response I’ve received online from this has been pretty overwhelming, but it’s so lovely to get all these lovely messages from people praising my idea.
“I’d definitely do it again in the future. It just sits so much nicer and is much more comfortable.
“The hairclip hack totally saved my dress, so I couldn’t be happier.”
