Can someone recommend a tailor in Cypress or near downtown Houston, TX?

I need to get some jeans hemmed. I don't want them to look home-sewn. I'd like the hems to look like they do when they're bought. Can someone recommend a tailor either in Cypress or near I-10 and Washington?

Remember those sheer, layered dresses from the late 90s?

Around 1996 I bought a dress from a mall store (Express or similar). It was short-sleeved, ankle-length, comprised of two or more layers of sheer, silky, solid-colored pastel fabric, and the style was that you would knot or tie up the top layer to reveal some of the bottom layer underneath. I can't seem to find a picture of it anywhere online - can anyone find an image of one of these dresses?

Cuddlin' on the Couch With the Elder Gods

I recently read (and adored) Scott Hawkins' "The Library at Mount Char". If I could find a real-life product similar to the apprentices' robes in the book, I'd be SO delighted. Here's every description of the robes that I could find: "rough cotton", "a gray-green cotton thing along the lines of a kimono with a hood, tied at the waist with a sash", "vaguely monk-like", "loose, oversized sleeves". Any idea where I can snag such a thing? Thanks, Hive!

How to keep cotton skirt from sticking to itself

Help me hunt down these specific board (or paddling?) shorts!

This past week I was at the beach and saw a group of women pop out of nowhere carrying an outrigger canoe which they climbed into and paddled off. A few of them were wearing awesome pairs of knee-length shorts, black with a hibiscus pattern down the side. I couldn't tell if they were Spandex or Neoprene...but I want to buy some like them. Google is unproductive. Can you help me find them?

Why are my jean zippers always coming undone?

So whenever I wear jeans, the zipper is always falling down. It does not seem to matter what the jeans are - new, old, too tight, too loose, just right. I know you ostensibly place the tab down to lock it, but this does not help - it just slows it a bit. Hence it's probably something I am doing wrong, or an incorrect fit that I keep buying. What might it be?

Vintage Clothing reeking of cigarettes, what do I do with them?

Is there a relatively cheap (i.e. non-dry clean) way to get years of cigarette smoke out of somewhat sensitive vintage clothing (i.e. silk, wool, fur)? I see a lot of weird suggestions online but has anyone here had to go through this and what's the best solution? Also, what is the most ethical way to either sell or donate fur? Some context below in the break. [more inside]

Why are my jeans setting off airport security?

I have a pair of American Eagle (women's) jeans that I tend to wear while traveling because they're comfortable. I think they're setting off the TSA scanners and metal detectors -- I've been pulled aside and patted down every time I wear them, and not much when I don't. My pockets are clear, and there's no egregious metal on the jeans besides the zipper and buttons. Any idea what might be happening?

What should I buy with £75 at Liberty (luxury department store)?

I have a £75 gift voucher to spend in Liberty (the luxury department store in London). I don't buy a lot of stuff and when I do I don't really spend a lot of money, so since I have this opportunity I would like to buy something more luxurious / higher quality / aspirational than I would normally. I'm a guy, and there's nothing in particular I want or need, so up for consideration is anything from menswear, men's accessories, stationery, homeware, jewellery, furniture, random objects, etc. What would you go for?

Where should I be shopping? Difficulty level: Dresses

As a woman in her early-mid 30s I'm finding that my old standby clothing sources no longer really work for me, but I have no idea where to go from here. Everything seems to be either too young or too old, and the current silhouettes that are in vogue are absolutely the LEAST flattering to my figure imaginable, so more trendy places seem to be right out. Where should I be buying my casual dresses these days? [more inside]

Tell me what different dresses are called, please!

Much of my wardrobe consists of short (knee length or slightly above) dresses. In the past 2-3 years, however, I've been plagued by a weird cut that seems to be super-popular, but which is intensely unflattering for me: a very slightly full skirt, with a waist that is too high for the natural waistline, but too low for empire. Do you know what this cut is called, and what I should be searching for in order to avoid it? Examples below the fold. [more inside]

Wheres a good place online to buy inexpnsive light Italian-style suits?

We were in Rome a couple summers back and I was taken with how well dressed Italian men are even in the summer heat. It seems the secret is in all the shops there selling very lightweight jackets, pants, suits. Perfectly suited to spring and summer weather. I picked up a couple outfits while I was there and now Im back in California and I'm wanting to grab more. Does anyone know of an online retailer that specializes in this sort of thing?
