looking for boxer shorts to wear under skirts

I'm one of the many women with "chub rub" (thigh chaffing) issues when wearing skirts. I've been wearing boxer briefs under them for the past few years, which solves that problem but I'm sick of how tight and HOT they feel. I want something loose and cool (that's why I wear skirts!). Specifics on my needs below: [more inside]

Men's dress shirts under $50 that don't need tucking

I want to buy some men's button-down dress shirts, both long and short sleeved, preferably for under $50 each. I prefer shirts that look good untucked (don't like the tucked look and find belts uncomfortable). I've seen untuckit.com which has a good selection, but am hoping to find something a little cheaper but still good quality. Checkered/plaid patterns best. Recs?

Help: Sewing Pattern for Specific Jumper?

I saw this overall jumpsuit (or jumper?) and I desperately wish to recreate it, as closely as possible. I realize it's pants with added suspenders (all in chambray/denim) but I love the fit and flare of the bottoms. If anyone could lend advice or point me in a direction, that would be wonderful! I am somewhat of a beginner sewer - no experience with pants making. I have tried searching patterns online/in stores - found nothing remotely close. Help! Thank you!

Where to buy reasonably-priced jewelry in Portland area?

Hi all. This is probably a dumb question but I'm having trouble figuring out where to buy the kind of jewelry I want. I've looked online and found a lot of cool stuff on sites like Etsy; however, I realllllly want to try things on before purchasing, so I'd prefer an actual store instead of an online retailer. Lots of jewelry just does not work for me even if I love it on the model. I'm in the Portland, OR area. More details below. [more inside]

Are these Baby Gap boots counterfeit?

I ordered a pair of Baby Gap sherpa-lined boots from eBay. I would have bought them straight from Gap, but of course, they don't sell them in the summertime. There is no Gap logo on the exterior or sole so I'm wondering if these are counterfeit. [more inside]
