higher quality/look comfy men's pants (that may resemble Betabrand)

I know that Betabrand sells men's 'dress pant sweat pants', which I like the idea of. However, the BB folks say that the waist band is not elastic. Ideally I'd like something that is both of those things (dress pant sweatpant + easily adjustable waist) due to stomach problems and upcoming surgery thing. Can't really seem to find anything like this? [more inside]

Lipstick shade match: L'Oreal Mystic Mauve (625)

So my favorite lipstick shade has been discontinued: L'Oreal Couleur Riche Mystic Mauve (625). Does anyone know of another lipstick shade that's a close match? Or (failing that) is there a good resource for finding shade matches for discontinued makeup?

Where can I find cute, colorful, crazy kids' clothes FOR ADULTS?

I'm looking for Cat + Jack, but for adults: cute, colorful, comfy clothes at normal prices. (More clothes I like but are only for kids: Tea Collection and basically everything in this thread.) I get brightly colored leggings from Forever 21. T-shirts are not my favorite; I really like tunics or dresses over leggings or with tall socks. I know about Hanna Andersson (still, the adult clothes are not as good as the kids' clothes) and Gudrun Sjoden, but I'm not spending $100 on a jersey-knit dress; I want to pay ~$30. Please hope me.

Identify this bra! (Or find me a similar one!)

I was watching Chungking Express last night, and love the look of the bra that the air hostess wears in one scene (image taken from a review of the DVD transfer / scene from the movie – bra appears from 01:30). Any idea where it or a very similar model could be found? I realise that this film is 23 years old, so the exact model my no longer be available – bra sleuths, help me out!

Men's dress shoes with hiking-shoe-like support?

I'm a university lecturer and I wear dress shoes for work. But I have some back and joint issues which make dress shoes uncomfortable for more than short-ish walks. I'm looking for men's dress shoes that are faculty-appropriate but have the support and comfort of sneakers or hiking shoes. [more inside]

Bra wranglers, what am I doing wrong?

My bra slides up over one breast (not the other) when I raise my arms. Accordingly, I try to avoid doing so in public but I'd like to actually solve the problem. [more inside]

Are These Cowboy Paddock Boots Made Fer Walking?

I live in a big East Coast city where I typically walk at least 4 miles per day as part of my commute. I'm always on the lookout for the holy grail of boots for women with a business casual dress code at work; can handle pounding the pavement (including a little rain) comfortably for several miles, and stylish enough to wear at work. In Googling around for flat lace-up boots I came across some websites for work boots which included several types of riding boot I'd never heard of before. Might these paddock boots be the boots of my dreams? [more inside]

Need a trichy haircut in NYC area, no mean girls (or guys) allowed.

I have trichotillomania (like fingernail biting, only pulling out hair). It has gotten really out of hand due to unreal stress. I need a hairdresser who can give me a cut and color minus running editorial/condescending commentary, judgment, or making me feel like s/he's just waiting for me to get out the door to make me a punchline or gossip target.

Discontinued nail polish dupe

I have this nail polish and I am almost out. It is Salon Perfect Loves Me, Loves Me Not. I like it because it is matte, the dragees are flat and not beaded, and it looks like TV fuzz. Anyone know of a good dupe?

Can anyone identify this woman in the Oscars audience? Or her dress?

In the audience at this year's Oscars ceremony was a woman I would like to identify -- or at least the dress she was wearing! The dress in question was blue, with horizontal stripes of white/cream lace and large sleeves trimmed with the same lace. She had light brown hair pulled back and gold hoop earrings, and appeared to be accompanied by a young boy with brown hair wearing a tuxedo. She was primarily visible in the opening song/dance from Justin Timberlake, during which she was (at least part of the time) standing in front of Ryan Gosling. [more inside]
