L'Oreal Paris Root Rescue
Some women can actually feel when their roots are growing in, like that type who screams out, "I need a touch up!" when there's one centimeter of natural hair color visible. But for women like us who are too busy to even tell, we only seem to notice how badly they've gotten conveniently right before an important event. And have you ever tried to book a colorist last-minute during the holiday season? It's nearly impossible. Enter Root Rescue, a precise permanent hair dye that you apply right to your hairline and wherever you need a touch up.

There's a fine line between classy and too much when it comes to cleavage, and camisoles seem to be your only option when trying to cover up. Thing is, camis can 1) feel restricting, 2) cause strap overload, 3) enhance your cleavage or flatten it down, or 4) create erroneous lines underneath your dress. Luckily, Essential Cami addresses all of these issues (and more). Simply put, it's a cover-up for your braonly it's backless, and easily buttons in four places around the front. Did you hear that? It's your favorite V-neck wrap dress shuffling to the front of your closet, because with Essential Cami, it's finally appropriate for your office party.

Kushyfoot Flats To Go
We have a love-hate relationship with amazing evening shoes. On one hand, they're gorgeous in the store window and even more stunning when we try them on, but on the other hand they hurt like hell an hour into the party. And since the thought of walking around a venue barefoot and stepping on glass remnants from Uncle Joe's ninth goblet of wine is downright painful, we're extremely thankful this season for these foldable flats. Since they come with their own compact case, they slip easily into any evening bag (or your guy's pocket) so relief is always within reach. Treat your feet for $8.99 at kushyfoot.com.
