Hair and skin issues
I've always followed the same, for want of a better word, 'beauty' regimen and until now there have been no issues. But now suddenly, I am experiencing many appearance-related issues and having to rethink decades-old methods. My problems are with my hair and skin. Is this a thirties thing? I could do with some advice on how to look decent again, as well as some help dealing with the emotional repercussions of suddenly looking terrible all the time. [more inside]

Is wearing a miniskirt as a cisman appropriative?
I was talking with one of my friends and they brought up that they saw my wearing of miniskirts as inappropriate. I've never considered this, having considered my ability to dress how I want as a part of my liberation from conservative past and binary gendering of clothing. I wear mostly women's clothing simply because they feel comfortable and I have a phenomenal set of dance legs which I enjoy showing off in a myriad of fashions. Am I missing something? Thanks!

Looking for the bootie equivalent of Worishofer sandals
I have issues with my feet/legs, namely weak, constantly twisting ankles and a heavy step that destroys shoes.

Where can I go to try on emerald and sapphire rings in Los Angeles?
I'm trying to suss out my own taste for engagement ring purposes and would like to try on emerald and/or blue sapphire rings to see if I like them as much in practice as I do in theory. Where can I do this in the greater L.A. area? I would prefer not to go to the downtown jewelry district (again), but if someone can recommend a shop there with emerald and sapphire rings IN STOCK to TRY ON and not just loose gems or settings separately, I'm open to the idea.

Long hair, don't care; jk I care way too much
I'm having one of my sporadic SOMETHING MUST BE DONE frenzies and booked a haircut for the day after tomorrow but still haven't decided exactly what to do. I need help dialing it in! I have: A (very) round face, thick and straight Asian hair, length but a desire to go short, bangs that are overgrown but not enough to be not-bangs.

AskMeFi Shopping Network
I need a very specific bag and I don't know where to look for it. I need a large bag that can be carried like a backpack, larger than 25L. I would like it to be in some way elegant (that's an open definition...), semi-fashionable for the PNW set, and water resistant enough to walk for 15 minutes in the rain and not be damp for days (so, probably not leather).

You are thin, on a budget and you buy jeans. Where do you shop?
School is approaching and once again I have to find jeans to fit my son. He needs a 28x32. It is possible to find 28" waists at Old Navy and Target, but they are more often than not closer to 30 or 31 inches when you measure them. Where are the the denim trousers that are true to size and are very reasonably priced?

Good Alt hair stylist in Bloomington, IN?
I just moved back to my hometown after being away for a couple decades. Are there any good alternative stylists around these days? All I've been able to find so far are trendy salons with stylists who don't really listen to me and leave me with soccer mom hair (which is great if that's what you like but it's not what I'm looking for.) Difficulty: neon hair with very difficult to work with texture and thickness combo. Thanks in advance!

What should I do with my hair
Not happy with my hair lately. I'm having lots of breakage which turns to frizziness if it's not flat ironed. I am a low maintenance person but I like having long hair. It's just past my shoulders and is naturally dirty blonde and lately I have gotten some grey. It is mostly straight but has a slight wave. (Female, early 30s) [more inside]

Trying to figure out what brand this logo is for...
There is a men's clothing/accessories brand that has a logo that is a capital "B" with an "A" inscribed (can't remember if it is capital or lower case) inside the top loop of the "B". I don't have a picture of it. This is a recent and probably high-end brand. Is this familiar to anyone?
