My hair has been longish for about year. I cut it all off tonight. It's now extremely short. Like clippers short. The big surprise was that I have one circular white patch about the size of a half dollar on the back of my head. That spot is so white and my hair so short that it actually looks like I shaved that particular spot. Like I imagine people will think I had a barbershop accident. It's not a great look.

I was riding my bike last week and a car drove by that absolutely reeked of a very common perfume. I realized that I want to be a more scent-aware person that can smell a perfume and build a story about the person and their sense of style. What are the 20 most common, mass-marketed perfumes in the US and how can I teach myself to identify them without buying any? Most perfumes annoy me, but I think they will annoy me less if I know what they are. Kind of like identifying raucous bird calls.
Nail people: what is the glossiest, most durable clear nail polish? [more inside]
I don’t understand thing 1 about influence in high fashion or how such companies make money. So while I’ve been aware that Rei Kawakubo is a “visionary”, I’ve never knowingly seen anything in my daily life that could be considered influenced by her. Is this wrong? How is that influence felt? Further, how do the economics of this influence work? How many Kawakubo outfits must Comme Des Garçons sell to break even? How many outfits in general must Comme Des Garçons sell in order to break even?
I stepped in quite possibly the worst smelling perfume/deodorizer/something with one of my boots. It's been nearly a week, and it still reeks. Help! [more inside]
Does anyone make some kind of underpant support/ass sling to make the drooping asses of middle-aged fat men look a bit better? [more inside]
I'm a college student that's been living on a very low budget, and is used to buying everything the absolutely cheapest I can. I about to go to graduate school, with a considerably larger living stipend than I had before. My clothes are all old, cheap, and collegiate--lots of t-shirts and jeans. I want to upgrade my wardrobe into something more professional, but am unsure how much to spend or what to buy. [more inside]
Is blowing out my hair with shea butter bad for it somehow? [more inside]
Last year I went to Burning Man, and couldn't really figure out what to wear on my feet until I stumbled on a combination of gaiters (like these) and a pair of Merrell minimal ("barefoot") running shoes (kinda like these). I'm now wondering if there's a prefab boot out there with some of the same properties. [more inside]
Interested in recommendations for beauty blogs - share your favorites? I like Into The Gloss and the beauty section of XOJane - I liked the short-lived beauty spinoff on Jezebel. I also follow Temptalia and Musings of a Muse. I like to read reviews and tips about cosmetics, fragrance, skincare, and hair care. What else might I like? Thanks!
I need help identifying what method of custom t-shirt printing I want to use. [more inside]
I am looking for a shampoo that doesn't coat my hair. A new stylist told me Dove just coats my hair and weighs it down, so that my hair is super straight and lays flat to my head. Is there a reasonably priced alternative? [more inside]
I bought this pretty handmade ring on Etsy last week. The images posted by the seller showed that the yellow topaz stone reflects multiple colors, especially pink. In person it is just as beautiful. I don't really know what to call this kind of topaz. My Google-fu has not helped me very much. [more inside]
I’m stuck on hair color. I’m curious about switching it up from pinks/purples to green! Though it will also end up on unbleached hair. [more inside]
Hi! I'm in need of a multipurpose travel bag and this Bric's folding duffel (in navy) seems like the perfect match. Except... the sides aren't flat. Instead, in a purse-like fashion, the ends of the zipper form triangles which then snap to the sides. Is this, in fact, a piece of women's luggage? Would it come off in the same way as a dude carrying a purse? I know how ridiculous the notion of gendered luggage is, but hey, fashion is weird. Please advise! (Nordstrom seems to categorize it under women's luggage, but if you search for the bag and click on the Men's section, it shows up there too.)
It's typically very difficult for me to find pants that fit me well - I have more than once gone into a dressing room with an arm load of pants, tried them all on, and walked out sad and frustrated, with no pants. I finally found one brand/cut that works and have just stuck with it for several years. However, I'm getting a little bored and would like to diversify. [more inside]
I am in the NYC area and am looking to get t-shirts printed for myself and the rest of my coworkers. We will be wearing these for fairly strenuous outside work so they need to breathe well and be fairly sturdy. I'd like them to look good as well. Where should I get them printed, what kind of shirt fabric and what are things to keep in mind to make things look good? [more inside]
I having some weird bladder and belly sensitivities that are making my jeans/pants feel uncomfortable. I've gone to the gyn for testing and plan on going to see a gastroenterologist in the near future. These issues are making my pants and underwear very uncomfortable. [more inside]
