What does my baby want for Christmas?

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]

Help Me Fit in at the Gun Range

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]

Warm workout clothes?

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!

Is there more than monochromatic minimalism?

Plus size women's clothing

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!)

Dress me for a blizzard of snowflakes

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]

What exercise clothes should I wear for school drop-off/morning jog?

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]

New Zealand north island in September clothes?

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?

Hair Here; Hair There; Hair, Hair, Everywhere

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]

Where can I find high quality, comfortable yet stylish clothing online?

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.

Adult Seeks Clothing: Bohemian edition

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]
