Replacement for Short Sexy Hair Quick Change?

Ugh. I finally found the best product to tame my my short, thick wavy hair, but now it's been discontinued. I did buy a few jars from ebay, but I think it's time to give up and go with something new. I liked that it was a microfiber paste/balm and it didn't leave a noticeable residue in my hair. Can anyone suggest an alternative?

Help me find a sleeveless denim blouse with a collar but no buttons

I want this exact dress, but as a blouse (not dress length). Before I buy the dress and spend money on getting it altered to be a blouse, can anyone find a match? For now, let's say price range doesn't matter: the important things are a) denim/chambray, b) approximately the same shade, c) sleeveless, and d) looks as close to having buttons as possible without actually being a button-down blouse.

He does love a hat

So in my family, as we get older we get less and less sun-tolerant. My father, at my age, bought a kind of pith helmet apparently for the sole purpose of embarrassing his children. Since I have no children to embarrass, I have more options. Hat me! (Restrictions inside) [more inside]

Help me tamp down flyaway hairs

I have long hair that I frequently wear in a ponytail or bun to keep it out of my way. When I do this, inevitably a halo of short hairs escape the ponytail and stick up around my face. [more inside]

looking for boxer shorts to wear under skirts

I'm one of the many women with "chub rub" (thigh chaffing) issues when wearing skirts. I've been wearing boxer briefs under them for the past few years, which solves that problem but I'm sick of how tight and HOT they feel. I want something loose and cool (that's why I wear skirts!). Specifics on my needs below: [more inside]

Men's dress shirts under $50 that don't need tucking

I want to buy some men's button-down dress shirts, both long and short sleeved, preferably for under $50 each. I prefer shirts that look good untucked (don't like the tucked look and find belts uncomfortable). I've seen untuckit.com which has a good selection, but am hoping to find something a little cheaper but still good quality. Checkered/plaid patterns best. Recs?
