Do you have a favorite simple shift dress pattern? I am looking for a simple dress pattern with no waist that I can make in a few different fabrics. [more inside]
I've been a nude sleeper for like thirty years, but I can't always get away with that. Then I saw this, which fits into my needs if I gotta sleep in a room with non-naked company, but yeah, I don't want to spend $160 because Gwyneth Paltrow says the fabric has some sort of magical woo properties.

Shoefilter: Where can I find quality, waterproof, not-too-ugly rain or snow boots for my 9.5W feet? [more inside]
My friend and I want a tattoo that expresses Dio’s Rainbow in the Dark somehow (ssshhhh. It’s meaningful for us). We need ideas for how we might do this? All areas, placements and sizes are open.
I'm looking to buy genuine alligator or lizard heels for women online from a website that will let me return the shoes if needed - but all the high end departments stores are selling un-classic gaudy styles, so I'm not finding anything. Any leads?
What perfume might I have (incorrectly) noted down as "Real Valley by Chanel"? [more inside]
I brought pretty bleached-out jeans as my only pants on a camping trip even though I am also starting my period. After an evening of peeing outside I realize I have a crazy stain on the crotch. What can I do? This campsite has a washing machine and I might have access to detergent or peroxide. Also looking for advice for if this needs to wait until I’m home Sunday.
What are these rust-colored suede wedge booties at the top of this page? They apparently aren't shoes for the advertised brand "Sole Society" - I've searched for over an hour on Google, Zappos and Ebay. Google image search shoes nothing. Who's skilled at this? Thank you!
How to dress my lower limbs? Summertime semi-formal church wedding in the afternoon. I will be wearing a red dress that ends just above the knee. I have medium brown leg hair that is long and curly. I won't be shaving, but I don't mind concealing it with tights or something...but it might be even more awkward if I'm wearing heavy tights in the summer. How can I avoid offending the conservative types?
I bought a hand fan. I want to customize it with fabric paint or markers. I don't know what product to use. Help? [more inside]
What makes a bag constitute a purse rather than a shoulder bag, messenger bag, briefcase with strap, etc.? Is it the apparent gender of the wearer, what the manufacturer labels it as, the use, the contents, or some other factor? [more inside]
I love this dress, which looks unexpectedly amazing on me, but I need help finding shoes to go with it. Difficulty level: wide flat problem feet. [more inside]
Good for both walking and work with a minimalist design. [more inside]
My friends and I are thinking about getting custom printed t-shirts with a leftist phrase on them ("Spreadsheet Anarchist"). We only need like six or seven at most and we want them to be ethical (e.g. union made). We're open to stuff like silk screening but don't have experience or equipment. What's the best/most economical way to do this? [more inside]
I read this article with great interest and a sense of vindication as a die-hard every-day shampooer. But, it seems most of the internet is comprised of heavily anecdotal discussions about how one should care for one's hair. I also see a lot of recommendations for using "salon quality" products rather than "store quality"hair products, but evidence for this also appears to be lacking. MetaHivemind, please help me find scientific, non-anecdotal resources on the effects of shampooing (especially with surfectants) on natural hair oils and overall hair health! I'd also love to see some evidence-based, non-anecdotal information about whether salon quality products truly are superior for hair health than store bought products.
I recently got a new job (yay!) and the dress code is business tending more to formal (ties, not suits). I feel like I might need a stylist to help get me started, but I'm not sure if there's a service out there willing or capable of dressing a plus-sized butch woman. Please tell me this exists! [more inside]
I’m looking for the holy grail of not-too-cleavage-y cotton-blend women’s layering tanks that can go from business-casual office to weekend wear. [more inside]
What are the best fake diamond stud earrings I can buy? [more inside]
I have a few cardigans that are my workday staples, but they're ancient. My three favorites are sort of a jersey-like polyester fabric (sort of like a technical/wicking fabric, but no need for actual athletic performance). A bit fitted/tailored (generally wear over short sleeve or sleeveless tops), not super loose and drapey. Can you help me find new ones (more inside)? [more inside]
I've accumulated several pairs of unwanted old eyeglasses, after a torrid fling with several of those cheap online eyeglass sites. I don't think they're recyclable and the old standby "donate for people in need" doesn't seem to be a thing anymore. What should I do with them? [more inside]
