Only one thing could be better in a fashion emergency than Hollywood tape, and that's a Hollywood tape gun! Heck, forget the handbag, wear it on a holster. (Gun about $14 and tape refills approx $10, online ex the US).

Skechers GOwalk - They weigh slightly over 100 grams each and have a 360 degree flexible sole - so not only can they be folded in half, but they can be rolled into a ball! You'll never be without a comfortable pair of walking shoes again ($119).

Every fashion-loving girl has at least one handbag (whether shoulder, over the body or clutch), and in that bag there'll be a clever stash of problem-solvers and life-enhancers.  

Mine always has a small packet of wipes (I'm a mum), a lip balm, a cat-shaped mirror my daughter gave me (which has caused a customs bag inspection on one occasion) and an emery board.  

Oh, and I recently acquired a tape measure for my keyring - it's already come in handy once. The keyring itself is a gorgeous Mi Piaci heart which cleverly zips to hold coins - if only I could jam my credit card and my coffee card in there too!

There's always room for enhancement - so we called on our sources and scoured the net to bring you new and outstanding handbag helpers.

Can you beat them? What's your favourite item in your handbag of tricks?
