Clothing and shoe stores in Toronto

I'm shopping for shoes and clothes in Toronto and I am looking for outlet stores within TTC reach. I don't have a car so going to Heartland in Mississauga is a major inconvenience because I have no car. [more inside]

What would Peggy Olson wear in her '40s?

I am a mid-thirties woman whose professional style is currently somewhat girlish (think this, this, this, this). As I move into my '40s, are there looks that keep this "feel" but in more age-appropriate ways? [more inside]

Brown spots from sun damage on my face; can I get rid of them?

I'm female, mid-fifties, white (English/Irish background) and in the last few years, amid other signs of aging, I've developed brown spots on my cheeks and jaw (perhaps from sun exposure while travelling in the Middle East many years ago; I've never sunbathed). I'm working on aging gracefully, but the blotchiness does bother me. Are there products or treatments that will help to reduce the spots or, happy thought, make them go away entirely? I've seen ads for various creams and serums; can I trust that they will actually be effective? Any recommendations?

Not another strapless white cream puff!

I'm looking for an alternative wedding dress-- something that doesn't feel like a white princess costume, but also doesn't feel like a 100% rejection of all things wedding, like a purple silk jumpsuit. [more inside]

Silver or gold charm bracelet?

I have a necklace with three pendants and I'd like to move two onto a charm bracelet and add more charms rather than overload the necklace. The necklace and pendants are yellow gold but I mostly wear silver, brass, gold or costume. I can't have anything that scratches easily and I want something that will last a decade. Can I mix metals, should I get silver, 14K gold, gold-plated, that Pandora thing advertised everywhere? I hear my granny shrieking "Don't mix metals!"

Good Substitute for Mary Kay Creamy Cleanser Formula 2?

People of the world who know about skincare, I need your input. I have pretty good skin (no history of acne or breakouts and not a lot of sun damage) and I have used a simple but effective cleanser for the past decade- Mary Kay's Formula 2 Cleanser, which is no longer sold. I am about to finish my last bottle as I stocked up a couple years ago just before the product was discontinued. What cleanser should I switch to for comparable results & where do I purchase it?

Non-stretch Women's Jeans?

I used to have a pair of jeans I loved, but the style is no longer available, and I'm having trouble replacing it. I'm looking specifically for jeans with little to no stretch. My current jeans list the fabric as 96% cotton, 3% elastine, 1% poly, and they're okay, but I kind of like the thick, solid, almost constricting feel of non-stretch denim. Do they make decent women's jeans without stretch anymore? [more inside]

this is why i can't have nice things

I have a nice leather handbag and I accidentally squished one of the handles under a chair leg. This is my first leather bag and I've only had it since March and I am feeling sad that I have ruined it, even though I doubt anyone but me can see what happened to the strap. It made me realize that I have no idea how to take care of leather. I'd like some tips (and maybe some perspective on whether I should be this bummed about it). [more inside]
