I am looking for Christmas gifts for my mother who lives independently but is in her 90's and should be easy on/off. I am thinking pant suits suitable for doctor appointments and church, but with the ease of sweats. [more inside]

Can you help me find some fun, silky, mule-style house slippers?

These Versace house slippers are speaking to me... but not for $150. Can you help me scratch this (kinda wild) new itch at a more reasonable price? [more inside]

My shoes are too funky !

I bought a pair of shoes via ebay (Doc Martens, casual) but they've come from a house where they obviously smoked because they have a bad cigarette/nicotine odor. I've tried to clean them but the smell hasn't dissipated. Any tips on eradicating this stench appreciated. They are leather upper, DM soles.

Where do I look for more comfortable jeans?

I have a pair of these "stretch flannel" jeans. They're by far the most comfortable pants I own, so they get worn a lot, so they're getting worn out. It looks like Levi's stopped making them - where can I get pants in a similar style and fabric?

My wife loves this green coat from The Undoing. Christmas is coming. I've found it for sale from several places, but how do I know if a store is reputable and will supply a quality product? Specific retail recommendations are welcome.

Baggy loose sweater sleeves - how to fix?

I have a delightful soft sweater and I’ll be wearing it as a warm layer everyday, now that it’s getting cold out. The sleeves are getting baggy and loose, and if I stand up and shake them out, the cuffs fall past my fingers and I picture them catching on fire when I try to cook. Quarantine has not been kind to me and my reactions to this range from irritation to rage. Nothing about quarantine is going to get better for a while but maybe I can fix this sweater. [more inside]

Bracelet wearers, how do you?

I want to wear this bracelet everyday, but I can’t do up the clasp by myself. I tried a magnetic clasp like I use for necklaces. Sadly, it wasn’t strong enough for a bracelet and I eventually lost the bracelet. Before I buy a replacement, any ideas on how I can get it on and off everyday? I think it will break if I sleep with it on.

fun undies

One of the things I've always enjoyed is wearing "fun" boxer shorts with bright colors and fun prints. Some of my boxers are starting to get kind of old, and my usual go-to sources don't have a lot to replace them with. [more inside]

Where do I find this material?

As promised, I am making a stuffed puffin to ~100% scale. I need a sample-size quantity of this glow-in-the-dark fabric or similar. It's for the beak, since most people don't have the ability to see ultraviolet light. I don't use Amazon. 6"x6" should be more than enough. Where do I get it? Please advise! [more inside]

Refill my sock drawer for less

It's coming up on wool sock season here in New Hampshire, and I find that my supply is mysteriously depleted (I blame the teenagers and/or the dog). I like SmartWool and Darn Tough, but they are pricy. Can anyone recommend comparable women's wool socks for less than $20/pair, preferably closer to $10? [more inside]
