You have leveled up! Time to upgrade your armor.

I'm a college student that's been living on a very low budget, and is used to buying everything the absolutely cheapest I can. I about to go to graduate school, with a considerably larger living stipend than I had before. My clothes are all old, cheap, and collegiate--lots of t-shirts and jeans. I want to upgrade my wardrobe into something more professional, but am unsure how much to spend or what to buy. [more inside]

Do these boots exist (tall, grippy flat soles, light but durable)?

Last year I went to Burning Man, and couldn't really figure out what to wear on my feet until I stumbled on a combination of gaiters (like these) and a pair of Merrell minimal ("barefoot") running shoes (kinda like these). I'm now wondering if there's a prefab boot out there with some of the same properties. [more inside]

Pretty! Smelly! Reading!

Interested in recommendations for beauty blogs - share your favorites? I like Into The Gloss and the beauty section of XOJane - I liked the short-lived beauty spinoff on Jezebel. I also follow Temptalia and Musings of a Muse. I like to read reviews and tips about cosmetics, fragrance, skincare, and hair care. What else might I like? Thanks!

Shampoo that let's you fly

I am looking for a shampoo that doesn't coat my hair. A new stylist told me Dove just coats my hair and weighs it down, so that my hair is super straight and lays flat to my head. Is there a reasonably priced alternative? [more inside]

I bought a pretty ring. Can you tell me more about the stone?

I bought this pretty handmade ring on Etsy last week. The images posted by the seller showed that the yellow topaz stone reflects multiple colors, especially pink. In person it is just as beautiful. I don't really know what to call this kind of topaz. My Google-fu has not helped me very much. [more inside]

Do I dare go green? I’m envious of that hair!

I’m stuck on hair color. I’m curious about switching it up from pinks/purples to green! Though it will also end up on unbleached hair. [more inside]

Bric's folding duffel: women's luggage, or OK for a guy?

Hi! I'm in need of a multipurpose travel bag and this Bric's folding duffel (in navy) seems like the perfect match. Except... the sides aren't flat. Instead, in a purse-like fashion, the ends of the zipper form triangles which then snap to the sides. Is this, in fact, a piece of women's luggage? Would it come off in the same way as a dude carrying a purse? I know how ridiculous the notion of gendered luggage is, but hey, fashion is weird. Please advise! (Nordstrom seems to categorize it under women's luggage, but if you search for the bag and click on the Men's section, it shows up there too.)

Please pant me!

It's typically very difficult for me to find pants that fit me well - I have more than once gone into a dressing room with an arm load of pants, tried them all on, and walked out sad and frustrated, with no pants. I finally found one brand/cut that works and have just stuck with it for several years. However, I'm getting a little bored and would like to diversify. [more inside]

Advice on custom print t-shirts for work

I am in the NYC area and am looking to get t-shirts printed for myself and the rest of my coworkers. We will be wearing these for fairly strenuous outside work so they need to breathe well and be fairly sturdy. I'd like them to look good as well. Where should I get them printed, what kind of shirt fabric and what are things to keep in mind to make things look good? [more inside]

Help me realize my campy T-shirt dreams

Three years ago, while on vacation in Japan, an acquaintance took a snap of this "Wonder Woman" T-shirt in a random clothing shop. Despite my impassioned pleas, he didn't pick it up, and I've been desperate to find it ever since. Help?

five in the stink

my husband bikes to work and back every day, and wears thermal bike gloves to keep his hands warm. They reeeeeek like the scent of 40 hockey bags, even though he washes them quite often. How can he wear gloves without being "ole stench mitts" at home and in the office?

What 1 product would you recommend to a pale dude with undereye circles?

I'm not a dude, but I am an incredibly lazy and picky woman who will never spend more than the time it takes to quickly shower and air dry my short hair on a morning routine, so work with me here. If a stereotypical 30something cis white guy with otherwise ok skin asked you for just one lightweight makeup product that he could buy and then apply in 30 seconds (or less, 10 seconds would be ideal) to reduce the impact of dark undereye circles in photos and in person, what would you recommend?

Vegan Comfort Shoes

I broke my foot in January and it's still swollen. I only own a bunch of boots, and the only boot that fits over my swollen foot is a western boot that's a size too big. The heel is pretty high and that angle is bad for my foot. I've tried on a few shoes and haven't found anything that fit, even going a size up, so I thought I'd ask for recommendations for a shoes that come in a wide size. Details inside. [more inside]
