My baby will be almost three months old by Christmas. People want to know what he 'wants' for the holidays. We have a lot of stuff already so I'm not sure what to say. [more inside]
I am a petite white woman in my forties. How can I pass as a conservative? Hateful people seem to be able to tag me immediately as a leftist, no matter what I'm wearing. [more inside]
I've recently started walking the trails near my house for exercise. As it starts getting colder, I've realized I need better clothes to wear. Must be available in petite, and have pockets (either in the sweater or pants is fine, I just need to carry my keys and phone.) Ideally, I would like some kind of zip-out lining, but I don't know if that's possible. Thanks!
Hey clothes-loving folks! I've been reading about capsule wardrobes, paring down clothing, and other minimalism-type posts My question is- does anyone know of a good post on capsule wardrobes/minimalism that has color in it? Something along the lines of "hey, I'm a minimalist and I love color, here's how that works" [more inside]

Toronto-specific question: I need to buy some new clothes for work, particularly white shirts, but I don't know where to look. [more inside]
Seems it's been awhile since anyone asked about clothing web sites for us big girls. I'm a 22-24, 2x, and just want some new ideas for my wardrobe. I'm not asking about any particular style, just throw your favorite sites at me! (I'm craving palazzo pants right now!)
My entire adult life I've had trouble dressing myself. If it were up to me we'd all be wearing Star Trek jumpsuits. I hate shopping, I mistrust fashion, and I'm really hard on clothing. Also: not made of money. But right now I need clothes and I don't have the time to scour 8 shopping malls for things I don't hate. Help me find an online retailer that suits my tastes and budget that I can be loyal to and buy all my clothes from. I'm preposterously finicky. [more inside]
I walk my son to school and then get in a short run before work. My current uniform is droopy, saggy-bottomed yoga pants, a ratty Eagles tee-shirt, and shoes with one lace missing. As a West Virginian accidentally living in a swank area of New York City, I already feel sartorially self-conscious. Dress me? [more inside]
I've been asked to officiate a beach wedding very last minute, Saturday. I need something like this: I know it's a stretch, but I'm sure someone has bought this before. Amazon will not arrive in time. Thanks for your help!

Your tips for organizing a men's closet (mine). I don't have too many clothes, but it seems that after organizing things (folding tshirt, stacking them) everything is a mess within a couple of days. What's going on? How can I improve?
I'm going with an active four year old to NZ for 2-3 weeks and will be mostly in Wellington and Auckland. We're coming from Singapore, so I imagine we'll need some additional kit, but what do I really need to (tight budget) buy or borrow? Hats, mittens, boots or just cardigans and warm socks? Do I buy it over here at Uniqlo or hit the secondhand shops when I land in Wellington?
I'm an AMAB person. I'm not cisgendered and would like to gradually alter my work outfit to look more feminine without being too obtrusive about it. Clearly, I'm out of my depth. [more inside]
I have long, dark hair. I know that I will be responsible for a long trail of shed strands and hairballs, possibly for the rest of my life. Thus, I've developed various coping mechanisms: constant vigilance about certain areas of the bathroom, tying my hair up during food prep, &c. I'd like to know what habits you other longhairs keep in order to reduce your hair-trail in home/professional environments -- and on your clothes. [more inside]

I am seeking a shirt with specific attributes -- [more inside]
I'm basically looking for the opposite of Forever 21 cheapy disposable stuff. I don't want designer fashion (and especially don't want their astronomical prices!), but I'd like clothes that I can wear to work or more casual shirts and dresses I could wear on the weekend. I used to shop at Ann Taylor and Banana Republic, and I still do on occasion, but I'm wondering if there are clothes that are higher quality that don't cost too much more. For example, Hanna Andersson's women's clothing intrigues me, especially the dresses in pima cotton.
I'm in desperate need of some new graphic t-shirts. At first blush, it seems like we're living in a golden age of t-shirts! Yay! The only problem is that I hate them all. Help? [more inside]
I want to wear this dress to a wedding this weekend, for which I am leaving tomorrow. I just realized this thing is totally see through and I don't even know what to look for to wear underneath due to the cut of the dress. Help! [more inside]
I wear cardigans every day, and I want to leave them open in front (whether they have buttons or not). But when I walk, my cardigans blow open, slide off my shoulders and then down my arms. I am constantly pulling them up or even holding them as I walk. What could I do to solve this problem and keep my cardigans in place? [more inside]
I've been living in these jersey button-up shirts. However, the fabric is thin and starts pilling after just a few washes. Where can I buy a higher-quality version of these? [more inside]
Generally I avoid white clothing, but I recently acquired a few nice blouses--plain white, white with dots, white with stripes--and I'd like to keep them nice. But all I know to do with white things is bleach them. How do you keep your white clothes white, particularly if they're not all white (i.e. patterned)? What actually works? [more inside]
So I've purchased some good airtight storage containers to keep my winter clothes in during the warm months. I'm confident they will keep the moths/mold/mildew/dust out. But what's the best way to keep the clothes smelling fresh when I open it next year? [more inside]
I'm sick of wearing boring clothes. Please point me into a new direction. [more inside]
I just had a baby 7 months ago, and the amount of clothes I have that are either in GREAT condition, or have never been worn is sickening. I keep buying and buying, and she keeps growing and growing. I thought a lovely idea would be to bring other mothers in the community together to do some sort of exchange maybe 4 times a year, but I need some help brainstorming how to set this up. [more inside]
I'm going up to Vancouver for the weekend soon and find myself with a bit of a clothing budget and a favorable exchange rate. I don't shop at the same stores as my woman friend up there due to differences in taste and size range, and my other woman friend there is off at a meditation retreat so I can't ask her. Given the preferences below the fold, where should I shop for clothes and shoes? [more inside]
I wear a lot of hoodies. But the ones I have left are worn to all hell. Help me find places on the Internet to buy new ones (specific criteria inside). [more inside]
I want to look cute at marathons. Men's running shorts and clothes are super blah. Dress me hotter! [more inside]
My job's dress code is extremely strict, to the point where I might as well just reduce my stress level and buy several of the same thing to wear every day. The most important, hard-to-find item: a goldilocks dress shirt. Details inside. [more inside]
Hi all, I've fallen in love with this bamboo clothes rack from Argos but unfortunately they only ship within the UK. Do any of you happen to know a smiliar or same item from a different store, one that would ship to Berlin in Germany where I currently reside? Many thanks, hive!

I got a desk job last year and with it came about 30lbs and I've gone from just being tall to being big and tall. I'm gathering momentum for working out but I need to dress the body I have right now. [more inside]

Once upon a time, I went to a Turkish bath in Istanbul where they gave out free women's underwear. I *love* this underwear and got 10 more pairs like it for 1 euro each at the bath before I left. It's the only underwear I've ever had that fully covered my butt, stayed there all day, and didn't dig into my sides. It's made by the Turkish brand Belinay. Can you help me get more like it? [more inside]
I always feel like I can get rid of more of my stuff, specifically clothes, and since our household will need to accommodate another person about six months from now, I feel like this is a good time to aggressively weed things out. At the same time, I would like to not buy a new wardrobe and continue wearing clothes like a decent person. How should I proceed? [more inside]
I really like the sweater Aaron Rodgers was wearing in his press conference after the Packers game last night. Can anyone help me figure out where I can buy one exactly like it?
I love bohemian style clothes. Always has, probably always will. I'm looking to find some new bohemian-style clothes online but it seems like all I can find are see-through scraps of fabric for waifish, dreamy-eyed, nymphets who work in the butterfly-chasing industry. Most of the stuff from Free People, for example, look like costumes to me. Please help dress a special snowflake. [more inside]
I need help finding underwear that is comfortable for me. I am a man, about 260 pounds, and I only like briefs. Embarrassing details inside. [more inside]
I'm moving into a new position at work that requires me to do away with t-shirts and jeans, and become a little more business-y. I don't have to wear a suit and tie thankfully so it'll likely be collared shirts/slacks. Any tips for the transition? [more inside]
I found this pair of shorts at a thrift stores years ago and absolutely love them. They are the most comfortable pair of shorts I have ever worn, and I have just about worn them out. I would very much appreciate any thoughts on how to find this specific design, material, and where to find/buy information you may have! Thanks in advance! [more inside]
Where can I buy clothes online for a plus-size male? [more inside]
This previous question could almost be me--except that I'm much larger. I need to find a wedding outfit for a December wedding in Vegas, and I'm profoundly uncomfortable in dresses. Can you help me find sources for dressy straight-butch-ish clothes, in maybe a 26/28 size pant and a top size that ranges from 28 into the 30s? [more inside]
I bought a shirt. I ruined the shirt the minute I decided to return it. Can I fix this or have I just bought a £30 cleaning rag? [more inside]
The advice "The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls" can be found quoted many, many places online (all clearly originating from one ur-source), attributed either to the Ladies Home Journal in 1918 or Earnshaw's Infants Department (invariably identified as "a trade publication"). Which was it? Was it, in fact, either? [more inside]
Winter is coming! I am looking for pretty, business-casual-ish, long-sleeved shirts to wear under cardigans. Where do I buy these, especially as a 6-foot-tall woman? [more inside]
Ladyclothesfilter: My style has always been pretty eclectic, and now that I'm thirty I'd like to look a little more put together at work and in general when I leave the house. I used to love ModCloth, but lately when I look at their site I feel like I'm looking at something meant for my kid sister. Where do I shop now? [more inside]
I'm attending my sister-in-law's wedding next month and we finally got confirmation that the ceremony/reception dress code will be "cocktail". I'm a woman who is tired of buying dresses I hate wearing and feeling uncomfortable at these sorts of things, so what can I wear that's appropriate but also me? [more inside]
