Does anyone recognize this skirt Sharon Horgan wears in season 2, episode 5 of Catastrophe? I want it. A lot.
The entire diamond industry is an immoral, ad-led con job believed by idiots. That said, I don't want to be the jerk who skimped on the ring. But I certainly don't want to show anyone that I've acquiesced to that nonsense other than her. Help this scrooge design a ring I don't hate. [more inside]
I wear a plastic watch. I'd like to wear a leather banded watch. I am elbow deep in water and chemicals all day. Am I crazy? [more inside]
In an attempt to use more of my makeup stash and get out of my rut, I have set up a list of quick "makeup challenges". I've put them in an randomiser app so the idea is that in the morning I will pick a challenge at random and try to take it on. I've already put in a few things around specific products I need to use more frequently, but I'd like suggestions on other things to add to my list. [more inside]
I live in a climate with temperatures that can get up to 110* in the dead of summer. Without arch support, my arches/toes/calves get painful cramps, and the only brand so far that comes close is Vionic (formerly Orthaheel). Which other brands am I missing? [more inside]
I've been slowly improving my wardrobe but somehow I'm feeling a kind of impostor syndrome--as though I'm just playing dress-up and look ridiculous. [more inside]
For *reasons* I'd rather not rinse conditioner off before getting out of the shower. In other words, I want to work a conditioner into my hair as soon as its clean and leave it there. I do the curlygirl thing of cowashing and being silicone-free. My current favorite conditioner is L'Oreal Evercurl which is an okay moisturizer but gives me great curls. So, is there a product or method out there that can free me from that final rinse?
Looking for ways of wearing a head scarf/wrap/bandana/etc that look BOTH definitely feminine AND appropriate for a young secular white woman. I'm trying to avoid looks that are unisex or tomboyish (which tend to make me, a trans woman, look more masculine than I'm comfortable with). Does such a thing exist?
Where can I find shirts cut for someone my shape? I have a slim, long torso, and relatively muscular, and therefore large, arms. [more inside]
What ONE skincare product should I add to my current sunscreen-moisturizer-cleanser routine in my twenties? [more inside]
My hair is longish. It's always been long to longish. For the last few months I've been thinking of cutting off about 6 inches and having a long, angled bob. What's it like to go from long hair to shortish hair? [more inside]
I need an ultra fancy and beautiful caftan for an event on May 1: white, possibly gold embroidered and bejeweled, available in 3x, and dripping with late Liz Taylor realness. [more inside]
My natural + previously faded out dye color was a dull medium brown yesterday. I asked the stylist for chocolate brown but it turned out reddish medium brown, only slightly darker than my previous color. At this point I'd like to be one or two shades darker and way less red. Can I fix this myself with box color? [more inside]
I want to know how I can reduce the length of the laces on my Hi Tops. A few ideas have popped into my head, but most aren't ideal. [more inside]
For at least the immediate future I'll need pass through security in a federal courthouse without the benefit of employee ID, which means going through a metal detector. I need a durable, metal-free belt (leather or otherwise) that fits standard 35mm belt loops and looks reasonably presentable in a casual-end-of-business-casual environment. Thanks!
Three or four times over the past four years, I have had the haircut of my dreams. But for reasons I genuinely don’t understand, no matter how many pictures I bring into the salon of what I’m after, it has been extremely difficult to keep getting the same haircut. So I turn to the hair professionals and other styling experts of Metafilter: please help me become fluent in stylist-speak so that I can explain exactly what I want! [more inside]
At the seasoned age of 38, I'm seriously considering getting my first tattoo. I've been thinking about a particular design for the better part of a decade, but damn, I'm having a hard time tracking down the right person in New York City and need recommendations. [more inside]
I never loved tattoos until I looked at some done with all blue ink. I think they are beautiful and I've always liked blue against my skin tone (pale and cool pinkish.) I have some slight scarring on my right forearm that bothers me and I think a band of tattoo around that part might look nice. I'm 46 years old and have a head of longish mostly grey hair. What should I consider before I take this impulse any further than a sketch and some googling? [more inside]
Nearing the end of my first trimester, gained some weight on top of the belly I already had and I can't suck it in anymore. What the hell to wear? [more inside]
I need some help navigating the process of updating my wardrobe and learning men's fashion. [more inside]
