A friend of mine recently picked up a shirt at a military-surplus store in Ireland with a distinctive patch on it (imgur link). She's curious about where it might have come from originally, but Google isn't helping. AskMe, can you identify it? [more inside]

Life-changing use of gift card?

I have a macy's gift card worth about $100. I could just use it for clothing, but I'd like to put it towards some item that would enhance my quality of living - an extra amazing hair dryer (upgrade from the cheap one I have now), a particularly fantastic set of sheets, etc. The kind of thing that makes an area of your life more enjoyable or easier to manage. Please give me your recommendations!

Want. Earrings.

I have a big soft spot for The Blacklist, though it has been especially weakly plotted lately. I was recently mesmerized by an episode titled "The Harem," because I fell for the earrings worn by "Emma Knightly," played by Anastasia Griffith, in a scene in the front seat of a car when Emma reveals she really works for Raymond Reddington.

Breakfast at Tiffany's - for the older set

I'd like to get my mom a really nice/fancy/pricey piece of jewelry for her 70th birthday. The only high-end jeweler I know is Tiffany's and their stuff seems quite young to me. Where does one go for something high-end for a more mature woman with a slightly artsy/eccentric taste? [more inside]

I'm trying to find gold bar and agate/geo earrings for sensitive ears

Hi Folks! I have seen cute gold bar earrings, similar to this image, on a lot of folks. I FINALLY found them. However, I bought the earrings at DSW and they caused my ears to become red- I have very sensitive ears. I love all the earring is this image in particular the crystal ones and the agate/geo looking ones- of course in addition to the gold bars. Any ideas on where to find for sensitive ears? I thought perhaps Etsy but I have no clue how to begin looking. thanks!

Feasablility of getting these boot heels LOWERED.

These are the boots in question. They look fierce on, and they're very comfortable in the foot, but the heels are a bit high for extended wearing. I prefer a heel about an inch high. These are about 1.5 inches high. Of course I'll be taking them in to my trusty cobbler for consultation, but I would like the opinion of you all beforehand, to steel me for bad news if it can't be done.

Umbrella for Women's March

Does anyone know of a source for an umbrella with a progressive slogan or image on it? I planned to carry a sign in the Women's March on Saturday but the forecast is for rain. It would need to get shipped to California by end of day this Friday. Thanks!
