One never knows when a sudden important meeting or social engagement could crop up - especially during the holidays.  In order to be prepared for such an event, just in case you are less than thrilled with your ensemble, keep this emergency kit stashed in the car or office:

* one pair of simple black ballet flats - they go with practically everything and are invaluable for relieving stiletto induced pain at the end of the day...especially great if you find you'll have to do some unexpected, long distance walking
* a clear hair elastic such as Blax and two bobby pins (loop the elastic through the pins to keep track of them)
* a naturally flattering lip stick that can double as blush in a pinch
* a thin tortoise or black headband to tame hair with classic style...use the clear hair elastic to create a bun for extra polish
* nail file for those nasty snags
* a small vial of beauty oil such as Josie Maran's argan oil or jojoba oil - you can literally use this type of pure oil for dry skin, split ends and ragged cuticles...a little goes a long way.
* plain black sunglasses as they hide tired eyes and can instantly glam up any look...buy an inexpensive pair and keep in your glovebox for emergency situations
* a jaunty printed scarf or wrap in a neutral color which can keep you warm, camoflage a less than stellar blouse or spice up a plain dress
* one statement piece of jewelry - a necklace or earrings are great but a giant cocktail ring might be most useful...pick whatever you feel most glamorous wearing
* a small spool of dental floss as well as gum or mints
* wet wipes (unscented or for sensitive skin) - use to clean virtually anything in hurry
* small package of tissues
* zip it all up in a slim pouch and thank the stars you've stashed it!
