Fix your toenails in 3 weeks with this one weird trick!

My toenails are a mess, I have to wear open-toed shoes in a wedding in 3 weeks, and I have no grooming skills. Give me a timeline for the very simplest method to get these things presentable on time. I'll buy whatever is necessary, but would strongly prefer to be able to get it at a standard drugstore and not spend more than I need to on this project. I hate having my feet touched so much it makes my angry just to think about it, so a pedicure is 100% not happening. [more inside]

Summer shirts?

Help me fill out my summer wardrobe. I'm looking for inexpensive, casual, cotton, short-sleeved, button-down men's shirts with patterns. Where can I find some? I know this is easy-mode stuff but I am just awful at anything clothing related. [more inside]

Boots that don't fit in a variety of ways

I'm cleaning out my closet/wardrobe, and realize I own several pairs of boots that don't fit or are uncomfortable in different ways.

Please help me find my Canadian narwhal.

A couple months ago, I saw a link, probably on Metafilter, to a really nifty, Canadian apparel company that made women's clothing. I kinda remember the brand being in the $50-$250 per piece range, and had a whole artsy, granola-y, "made ethically in Canada" kinda vibe. This season's sleeveless blouse had a narwhal print, and I loved it, but now I cannot find the link I saved. Please hope me.

Lead poisoning from cheap jewerly?

I'm thinking about buying some cheap rings from Forever 21 to wear often. I'm concerned about exposing myself to lead poisoning from frequent use. I've seen articles about their jewerly having traces of lead so I was wondering if I'm being paranoid or realistic. I'm a healthy-ish 20 something year old. [more inside]

Unstretch my neck!

Where can I find men's undershirts that have crewnecks that don't stretch out? Alternatively, is there a way to prevent the necks from getting stretched out in the first place? Or can they be un-stretched back into place? [more inside]

What is this (Korean-inspired?) chef's or workman's-style shirt/jacket?

TraditionalKoreanFashionFilter: the barista at a Seoul "traditional+modern" cafe (I didn't get the name) was wearing a shirt/jacket that was stunning. Our translator informed me that it was an updated, modern, more wearable version of a traditional Korean jacket. What is it, and how can I search for things like it? [more inside]

Short hair, don't care? Except I do.

Last year I gained 30 lbs and cut my waist length hair off. My slim waist and lovely hair were apparently the main things that made other people think I was pretty, and now that those things have changed, my self image has tanked. I want to feel beautiful again. Hell, I'd like to feel sexy, too. What should I try in order to see myself now as being just as "good" as I was before?

Where does a timid refashionista go for feedback?

I love the idea of refashioning beautiful-but-ill-fitting finds from the thrift store into cool "new" things I'll actually wear--but I'm paralyzed when it comes to cutting them up. Is there an active online forum of like-minded people who share pictures of the original item and give one another ideas for the refashion? or weigh in on an idea here... [more inside]

Bleach blunder

I would like to dye my underarm hair atomic blue. I have sucessfully ordered the dye- but due to being less than mobile right now and some communication issues I think I have the wrong bleach. Is there anyway I can use it, or is it back to the store for my mother. Also, if I need to buy different bleach, where in SF can I get it? [more inside]

No more razors, please

I'm a man in his 20s who grows an unsightly crop of patchy stubble every 48 hours or so, including a very unattractive dirtbag 'stache. I'm sick of shaving, and would rather be clean-shaven all the time. What are my good options for making this happen without creating some kind of horrible downside, like an upper lip full of ingrown hairs?
