Can you recommend me the best anti-perspirant deodorant ever?

I used to use Dove roll on but am currently trying out Nivea Dry Comfort. I'm not sure whether I'm particularly sold on it. While my armpits generally smell okay, sometimes the armpit area of my clothes ends up smelly anyway. Can you tell me what's up with that? And/or: Can you recommend some kind of anti-perspirant which also imparts a pleasant smell, not just a neutral one?

Looking for stores in NYC that are currently selling "bohemian" skirts

I'm looking for a "bohemian" style skirt, preferably non-patterned, preferably in a dark or jewel tone, either knee/midi length or longer, in straight sizes. Unfortunately, this came up last minute, so what I'm looking for is any knowledge of stores in Manhattan (or nearby Brooklyn or Queens) that have that sort of style in stock right now. [more inside]

I need rubber overshoes -- but my feet are small.

I am all Googled out. I like to get some rubber overshoes and I'd prefer them to not be black, but that's not a strict requirement. I want the kind that go up to the ankle - not the ones that just wrap around the edge of the shoe. I am a woman who walks to work and I'd rather not carry my shoes in my bag and wear rain boots when it's damp outside. [more inside]

Boots like these, but better!

I'm looking for a better quality pair of boots to replace these Steve Madden ones I bought a few years ago. I really like the style of these boots, with the little crochet detailing, and they're quite "light," but they're wearing out and it's time for me to find something new. [more inside]

Can I just buy 12 dresses and call it a day?

I'm going to need a "business casual" wardrobe for the first time in my life, but I have no idea how to go about that because I am a short overweight woman whose weight is very changing and I have a desire to look stylish and interesting, not boring and frumpy. Is just filling my closet with dresses a thing I can do? How many dresses would I need? [more inside]
