How do I buy a used gemstone?

I'd like to buy a used/"vintage" gem for an engagement ring. Looking at vintage rings on ebay and etsy, I have zero idea how to assess the "quality" of the stone, or how to know if it's real, or what. Is it possible for a lay person to do this? What should be my basic steps for assessing the rings or loose stones I see online? [more inside]

How to stop compulsive behaviour?

I have problems with shopping compulsively. I want to stop so I can work on paying down debt, and the feelings of guilt and deception when it comes to hiding things. But I haven't found a way that sticks. Does anyone have any experience with beating addictions on a day to day basis? Or in talking yourself out of cravings? [more inside]

How to get pants that fit me?

My girlfriend and I recently spent several hours in our typical U.S. city looking for some new pants for myself, an adult male. Almost none of them fit. I wear a 34" waist (36" was always way too big) and a 34" inseam, but in most of the pants my abdomen showed upward-pointing "smile lines." From looking at some sewing blogs, it looks like this means the crotch is cut too high. My girlfriend says I have a "perky" rear end, so some of the pants were giving me wedgies too, especially the ones made from thinner fabrics. After trying on lots of pants at Nordstrom Rack, Gap, J. Crew, and Banana Republic, we were only able to find a few pairs that actually fit (a pair of khakis at J. Crew, dressier slacks at Banana Republic, and a pair of Levi's 505 straight fit corduroys). I couldn't find any jeans that would fit me at all, but maybe I can find somewhere with 505 jeans. [more inside]

The Devil Wears Prada

I'm working on a project in China at the moment aimed at getting luxury European and North American brands to install themselves at a new five-star hotel and luxury shopping plaza in one of China's many rapidly growing second-tier cities. The location is excellent and the nimiety of demand and feasibility studies we have conducted show this clearly. We need to convince key decision makers not only in Paris, Milan, London and New York but also here in Shanghai. But how to contact the right people? [more inside]

Help me plan a Brewster's Millions Birthday.

So it's my wife's birthday soon. She's quite picky when it comes to gifts, and likes shopping, so I'm giving her some cash for her birthday. Only thing is, this seems a bit lame/dull/lacking in thought, so I need a way to make it interesting, and, inspired by the 80s movie Brewster's Millions, I'm thinking about attaching some fun conditions/rules governing the spending of said cash. Now I need help coming up with said rules. [more inside]

Cute and classy lingerie online or in NYC?

Ruffly panties online, or in NYC? i.e. cute, classy panties/bras/corsets/etc that won't break the bank. Victoria's Secret falls apart pretty fast, in my experience. Looking for something a step up, but not ridiculously expensive or (on the other hand) trashy. At the very least, how much should I be looking to spend on such a thing? [more inside]
