How do I fake tan?

I never fake tan because I am lazy and I never do it right and I hate the smell. But I'm going out on Friday and wearing a short skirt for the first time in literally years and my legs are blindingly white. Tips on not looking like I'm entering a Trump/Oompa Loompa fancy dress contest please? [more inside]

Is this a 'if you have to ask, you already know the answer' thing?

I bought this dress to wear for my wedding, but have since decided on something else. Now I want to wear it to a friend's black tie wedding, but I am concerned that it looks too bridal. [more inside]

Can you find me a picture of a particular type of shirt?

Ok, so it's the 90s or 2010s, and you're at the sarong/tie-dye/bong stall at the local fair, and you buy a three quarter sleeve neutral-yet-colorful t-shirt that has gauzy layered images of like, Ganesh, or Buddha, and lotus flowers and random kanji/sanskirt/lord knows printed all over it. You know what I'm talking about? Can you find me a photo of this type of shirt? [more inside]

Hell has frozen over.

Mr. Terrier and I have been invited to a late August wedding....and we actually want to go! The couple in question are good old friends of ours. The bride (in her 50s) will probably appear in a smashing cocktail-looking number. Natch, I'm going to wear a nice dress. Nothing currently in the closet is special enough, so I went online (a dangerous place.) [more inside]

Are all salons created equal?

I recently began laser hair removal at a salon in nyc and have had amazing results. I want to continue but it's.... crazy expensive. Are all places generally the same or do you get what you pay for? [more inside]

Help for transparent eyebrows

My birth hair color was bright coppery red, think the color of a new penny. My eyebrows were always much lighter, and in summer, bleached by the sun to almost blonde. Fast forward to 2016. My hair is now mostly a warmish platinum, around my face and on the crown. [more inside]

How Many Different Size T-Shirts Should I Order?

I have an event coming up where I'll be selling screenprinted shirts of various sizes... any suggestions on how to spread these out among different sizes? 30% mens large, 10% Ladies small, etc? Is there a rule of thumb to go by? I know demographics plays a role, but assuming this is an adult audience, evenly split male/female, 18-60?

Wheelchair users of MeFi, save my thighs from unintended consequences.

I can walk, and I've used a manual wheelchair for years to travel longer distances, but now find it's most convenient for my knees to stay in my chair almost all day at my new job. I love almost everything about this strategy, except one: I am a confirmed pants-wearer, and I find the fabric wrinkles and presses into my thighs so that by the end of the day, my skin is itchy and irritated.

Where can I find high quality, comfortable yet stylish clothing online?

I'm basically looking for the opposite of Forever 21 cheapy disposable stuff. I don't want designer fashion (and especially don't want their astronomical prices!), but I'd like clothes that I can wear to work or more casual shirts and dresses I could wear on the weekend. I used to shop at Ann Taylor and Banana Republic, and I still do on occasion, but I'm wondering if there are clothes that are higher quality that don't cost too much more. For example, Hanna Andersson's women's clothing intrigues me, especially the dresses in pima cotton.

How do I keep my shirts from smelling moldy?

I live in the UK and laundry here is just different from in the states for a number of reasons. I hang my laundry to dry, which mostly works fine except for my long-sleeved t-shirts, which always smell musty. I space them out all over the house, they feel totally dry and don't smell at all when I put them away, but a few days later when I pull one out to wear, they smell of mold. [more inside]

Stains on a jacket from fermented watermelon. Can I mask the damage?

This dingleberry left a watermelon in a bag in her car on a hot day. Even more stupidly, I covered it with my favorite jacket. The watermelon must've fermented/exploded, then whatever sludge was left gave my navy blue 98% cotton, 2% spandex trim jacket (with gold metal lobster clasps and some similar hardware) some funky bleached-out patterns that haven't come out after two washes. How can I mask the damage so that the jacket is a solid color again? [more inside]
