Slim, comfy jeans

I asked this question almost two years ago and looking to replace a pair of jeans (uniqlo and gap) as I've gotten a little bigger and the jeans are starting to fray. What's new in jeans for a sub $100 pair of jeans that are dark wash, slim but not too tight and are not baggy?

Did you have these sneakers, and did their dye run?

Merrell Enlighten Shine Breeze (Ignore the sponsored results at the top of the page -- the ones under those are the ones I'm asking about.) I've had a blue pair of these that were perfect... except that when they got at all wet, the blue dye ran onto my socks, staining them. Did I just have a bad dye lot, or did all the blue ones have this flaw, or did other colors have this flaw, too? [more inside]

Identifying a perfume WITHOUT the original bottle

Most perfume identification questions seem to use the bottle as a clue -- my mystery scent was transferred into a different bottle like at least 40 years ago by my late mother. It's a very evocative smell to me I'd like to identify or find something similar. Where do I even start??? [more inside]

where can I buy a nice top for my teen?

Looking for a vendor (online or brick+mortar) where I can reasonably expect to find a "nice" top for a teenager. This is harder than you'd think. I must be looking in the wrong places. What are the right places? [more inside]

Nail polish that doesn't show chipping

Can you recommend a nail polish that won't show chips or imperfections? Something with a little more coverage than clear, that doesn't require perfect application, and where small chips aren't obvious. Pearlescent or a little shimmer is okay, but nothing too glittery. [more inside]

Black & white aesthetic, leather and cake

I'm trying to find the name of a DIY style blogger circa 2009-2011 who had a black & white aesthetic and worked on both food and clothing/accessories, but who suddenly had a meltdown circa 2012 and presumably disappeared. [more inside]

Trans clothes recommendations for my nephew!

Asking anonymously to preserve the safety and privacy of my loved ones. My family’s AFAB high schooler has just begun transitioning to he/him. :) His birthday is coming up, and I’d like to present money and a list of links to well-liked clothing shops for clothing that teens might like. Recommendations for good compression tops would be very welcomed, as well as stuff y’all like. Right now, his style is mostly t-shirts and flannels, which it was pre-transition, but I thought it would be nice to introduce him to other great clothes that currently resonate with trans / non-binary people, since this is also the age when a young person begins to explore their own tastes (or just needs that one special outfit for weddings and the like).

high femme, hot weather: what do I wear in Singapore?

My wife and I are going to Singapore! And probably Thailand, and maybe Taipei. Our travel dates are late November/early December. I am the kind of person who likes to wear high femme, structured, edgy-professional clothes all the time. I also do terribly in heat and humidity. For this trip, we're doing an even mix of professional events and tourism (our kind of tourism is going to be restaurants/museums/historical sites, not hiking). What on earth am I going to wear?

Good quality woven boxer shorts...but with fun patterns?

So lo these many years ago, like probably 2012 or so, I ordered some boxer shorts with fun patterns from J Crew to wear as pajamas. They were great, but they gave up the ghost this year. [more inside]

How to salvage this hat?

I have a light blue baseball cap. The colour is a bit weathered looking - a little lighter in places and darker in others, but it's a subtle effect. I got a dirt stain on it and scrubbed it off, but this left the brim of the hat with a white circle where I scrubbed. It's very obvious. How can I fix it? I'm open to creative solutions like patches or tie dye, but I don't want anything too loud or boisterous because I liked how calm and understated the colour was.

Searching for clip-on sunglasses

Specifically, quality round-shaped and wire-rimmed, available in various sizes and colors. My optician can no longer supply this style. Thanks in advance for the info.

Flip flops sold in threes?

Amazon Basics flip flops seem to come in packs of three sandals, rather than three pairs of sandals, at least going by the photos that accompany the listings. Is that the case? Have any of you purchased these and received three sandals? Or are the images misleading and what they're selling is three pairs of sandals? I could do the science and simply purchase a set, but I'd prefer not to. Yes, this is absolutely #fundraiser2023. [more inside]

Breathable, full-length pants for a big and tall guy

For years, I've been wearing full-length jeans or slacks in public due to discoloration and damage to one of my legs from a DVT many years ago. I'd prefer not to wear shorts in public. (I regularly wear shorts around the house or in the yard.) Recent extremely high temperatures have made it difficult for me to continue to wear jeans or slacks when I'm outside in public for extended periods of time. Are there thin, breathable, full-length pants of some sort available for those with a 46-48" waist and a 32-34" midseam?

What's new & effective in the world of facial beauty procedures?

I saw something on the Internet the other day that had to do with... freezing bits of your face? And there was another one with needles. Are these things that regular people are doing? Do they work? Is there something for my issues that I could do? [more inside]

Donating Clothes

I have a closet full of clothes that don't fit me anymore. They came with me in my last move ( which was 15 months ago ) Most are in good condition but I just want them gone, so I can place the boxes in the dining area in the closet. However, it feels wrong to just put them in bags and throw away. Where can I donate these, within 15 miles of Alexandria Virginia?
