Ladies, To Keep Or Not To Keep?

24 Jun

Ladies, this evening,  I received a question from one of my readers today, Dana out of Harlan, IA.  She started off by saying,  “Miss Mitchell..I know you blog about decorating and a few other topics, but you’re very fashionista and I have a little question…..!” 

 Dana wanted to know whether the hang straps inside her formal gown she was wearing could be cut, she’s tried it on and they were noticable.  This made me think,  I’d never thought about cutting the hang straps from my blouses, skirts or dresses! LOL  Hmmm, should I be? 

I have always tucked or taped the hang straps, so they would not show when wearing; especially if it’s strapless.  I would keep the hang straps in tack to hang back the garment, thinking it assisted in preserving the shape while it’s hanged in the closet or secure when I’m travelling!   It wouldn’t be placed in the garment; if they weren’t important! Right? 

(Just imagine me asking this to Michael Kors or Christian Siriano, Mr. Fierce himself,  do we really need these things? LOL  Oh.. by the way, Christian’s  sister is getting married this week, he designed 3 dresses for her wedding…just wanted you to know!  I’ll post if he publishes them!!)

OK, this is such a great question, so I said let me put up a poll on this topic and see what other people would do with these infamous hang straps!  I’m curious! 

See, you had no idea, that this would be a topic of discussion! Neither did I, thanks Dana! (giggle

Oh! Yes, I did e-mail Dana back, saying to not to cut them from her strapless dress – tape them down, so she would feel comfortable;  also with a thank you for the compliment and her readership!  Why? She did say it was a formal gown and to keep its form, the hang straps will help keep its shape.
