I have uneven, overplucked, sparse eyebrows and have been reading about microblading as a solution. But I have concerns about scarring, especially since I'd need to get it done multiple times over my life given it only lasts 1-2 years. It looks like there are other techniques that may minimize scarring risk, but it's hard to find objective information. [more inside]
Is there a person or service in New York/Brooklyn to help make over my apartment and potentially my wardrobe? [more inside]
A few years ago I bought this Athleta dress from a consignment shop for $11, and it's become one of the most versatile items of clothing I own. It doesn't wrinkle, it still looks (and smells!) good after I've worn it for a week straight in a pinch, and it's washable. I can wear it to work, I can stuff it in my bag when I'm traveling, and it's neutral enough that I can easily dress it up or down. Help me find more clothes like this! [more inside]
One of my girlfriend's favorite umbrellas is on its last ribs. She hasn't been able to find another like it. Her birthday is in a couple weeks. Can the hivemind help me come through? [more inside]
Hello, I'm trying to find a men's clothing company. The name is Bruno New York--I see their stuff in a lot of stores but I cannot find them anywhere as far as Google or a website. [more inside]
Looking for recommendations for fashionable, comfortable, quality mens socks that have extremely smooth toe seams, or no toe seams at all. [more inside]
My hair seemed smoother, silkier, less tangly, after being to the hair salon. He did blow-dry my hair, while I normally let it air-dry. Is it the blow-drying that made the difference? In which case, is blow-drying good for hair if it makes it less tangly and so prevents breakage? [more inside]
Give 'em to me. Mostly looking for good quality, but also looking for amazing smell-ness, so I can look forward to and feel pampered during shower time. [more inside]
I love my Keen Owyhees. They're cool on hot days and I can throw them in the wash when they inevitably get odorous. I'm looking for something dressier, that can be worn without socks, that can either resist foot odor or are machine washable.
I am shopping for a dress and I am having trouble figuring out which retailers are going to deliver me a dress that looks like the one in the pictures and is somewhat close to the size promised. [more inside]
I'd like to make a matching set of boutonnieres, using leftover scraps of a large-patterned fabric. How? [more inside]
In 2009, I bought a hat. A few years later I lost the hat in Lake Te Anau, and I'd like to get a new one just like it. But, I can't find the right words to google this correctly. Snowflakes within. [more inside]
I had a friend pass away, and the funeral is later today. Is this an appropriate outfit for a funeral home? If not, please advise me on other options. [more inside]
Is Dagwood Bumstead's hairdo meant to be a stylized representation of the sort of 1930s hairdo that F. Scott Fitzgerald sports in this picture, that one and this other photo? [more inside]
In the summer I like to wear alpargatas/espadrilles, but the Tom's canvas alpargatas I bought in late-May have already begun to fall apart. Any recommendations for sturdy, well-constructed espadrilles/alpargatas that won't fall apart? (note: not boat shoes) [more inside]
I recently started wearing t-shirts with stuff on them, but I'm having problems finding ones that fit. Do you know any shops on Etsy or the like who carry graphic shirts for tall women? [more inside]
For reasons, I want to get nail extensions for my short bendy nails. I have tiny nailbeds, if that matters -- every single manicurist ever likes to comment on them. I'd like to have short squoval nails, probably without fancy patterns or anything inlaid -- part of the point is to prevent some habitual fidgeting. But I've never done this before, so I need some guidance... [more inside]
I want to find some cotton bras which have room for inserts. Most cotton bras are unlined, and if I'm in a formal situation and choosing to suffer through the rare miserable discomfort of a bra to begin with, I'd like to have full coverage, and want to be able to slip in those thin silicone things which solve the problem well. [more inside]
I just had a haircut - from a hairdresser who'd received very good reviews, the director of the hair salon. (I hadn't had a haircut for about six months beforehand.) My hair is still full of split ends, though, even just after this haircut with a hairdresser who should be objectively pretty good. Some are pretty far up, maybe at shoulder height. I think I treat my hair pretty well - no heat, wash roughly every third day. So... what should I do: a) to get rid of the split ends I currently have. Can I somehow preserve the length while getting rid of split ends? Is this a thing a hairdresser can do for me - presumably sit there for ages cutting individual hairs?? Or do I just have to chop it all off? (I have heard of a thing called a "split-ender" - I don't know if this is any good in practice.) b) especially if I do have to chop it all off and start again (but even if not!) how do I avoid getting so many split ends?
Can you help me find a dress exactly like this that's available in my size (US 16)? I'm looking for knee length or midi, button down, cotton or linen, seersucker or white or chambray, with straps wide enough that I can wear a normal bra.
