Secret Fashion Fixes has savvy solutions to your everyday sartorial problems, solving gaping shirts and trousers, wayward bra straps and smudging mascara. All have all been wear-tested by Ennis-based owners, Dee Fitzgerald and her sister-in-law Wendy Fitzgerald. One best-seller, Hem Gems, €20 for eight, are small rivet and star-shaped studs that you use to lift the length of your trouser or jean leg to suit your heel height. Phone Fetcher, from €15, clips on to the inside of your bag and comes with a chain that fits into the earjack of your phone. When it rings you follow the chain to find it easily. Pouchee (€27) is a portable handbag organiser that allows easy transfer of your goods from one bag to another.
