Where does one get tattoos and/or piercings in Minneapolis these days?
I'm in this class with some people. For unrelated reasons - but the idea of a tattoo field trip is funny! - we would like to go as a small group to get some tattoo touch-up work and some simple piercings. No one has had work done in the Twin Cities recently and we're not sure where to go. [more inside]

Is there an anti-perspirant that won't destroy my clothes ?
I sweat a lot. A tremendous amount. I sweat when it's 68 degrees outside. I sweat every single moment of the day. I've tried a number of stick and gel and spray antiperspirants and had varying degrees of luck with each of them. My favorite (Mitchum's gel) generally works better than most, but, after it destroyed a really nice new suit jacket within two hours of wearing - I've got to find something new. So, here's the question: Is there any antiperspirant out there that actually reduces the sweat AND won't ruin my clothes?

Where is my purse?
My wife has had the same purse for the past four years and it's amazing, but now it's falling apart and we can't find a replacement anywhere. It's Fossil and she bought it at Macy's. [more inside]

Watches for the 99%
I enjoy reading the reviews and ogling the pictures of all of the high-end luxury wristwatches on Hodinkee. Is there an equivalent magazine for less-affluent wristwatch enthusiasts? Those of us in the sub $1K price range? I would prefer a well-written news and review site to a forum of collectors, but if there are some forums of with exceptionally high-quality pics and reviews I would be okay with that.

Make over my makeup kit! Difficulty: Rite Aid.
I'm officiating my little brother's beach wedding tomorrow, and I discovered WAY too late that my rarely-used makeup collection was a lot more, uh, congealed and icky than I realized. The only place I'll be able to stop to refresh it, though, is a Rite Aid. I'm not great at picking makeup to begin with, and the additional deadline is cranking the pressure up to 11! Makeup gurus of AskMe, I could really use your help... [more inside]

Please help me find this clothing brand!
I found my perfect shirt at a rummage sale and am trying to track down the brand. The tag has a capital "M" with a striped background, and has a picture of a crying girl on the back with a striped heart on her shirt. I tried looking up the RN and CA numbers with no conclusive results (I already know it's 50/50 cotton poly jersey). Can the hive mind help? Here are images: Front, Back. Thanks!

How do you wear a winter coat with a blazer?
I find myself in the realm of needing to wear a winter coat on a regular basis in the nearish future. A winter coat with other layers underneath. As a person who really hates cold, and owns a few blazers, I am hoping to wear them sometimes with a winter coat. But how? Is it as simple as wearing a blazer to the store and finding a coat the fits over the blazer? And oh god, how do you do that? [more inside]

Help me find an autumn/early spring jacket
The weather is starting to get a bit brisk and, once again, I lament my lack of owning a good fall jacket. A few years ago, I found this zip peacoat-style rain jacket on a bargain website and I LOVE almost everything about it. Unfortunately, I have giant norseman shoulders (44 jacket measurement) so a Banana Republic XL is just a *bit* too tight in the back. It fits perfectly... untilI need to use my arms, that is. I would like to find something in the same vein, if possible. [more inside]

She couldn't care less; should I?
My daughter is almost two, still in diapers. I send her to daycare with a day's supply of diapers and at least one change of clothes. Every single day when I pick her up, she's inevitably wearing her top and diaper, and no bottoms. If I sent her in a dress and tights, she's wearing the dress but no tights. Is this a Problem, or Not a Problem? [more inside]

Jeans advice: non-skinny designer jeans?
My goto jeans are Levis 527, which are their "boot cut" style. I typically buy them for $40 online. My problem is that after 6 months of moderate wear, the butt starts to sag and they look like old man pants. [more inside]
