The many uses of Post-It Notes

So today I’m wearing this dress, which I already had an issue with because I didn’t have any nude underwear, and I’m not quite sure that the lightest color I could find this morning (light grey) are light enough. It turns out that I shouldn’t have been concerned about my underwear, because it’s more than likely that people on the train this morning were staring at the PENCIL ERASER SIZED HOLE ON MY LEFT BUTT CHEEK.

I don’t have an emergency sewing kit on me, and did not feel like running out to purchase a new dress to wear. And then on my desk, I spied my solution.

I cut a small circle out of a yellow Post-It Note, grabbed some scotch tape, ran to the bathroom and taped that sucker to the inside of my dress, covering the hole. It’s not perfect, but it’ll do. And you can’t see any cheekage.

Creative win?
