Where to get ears repierced?

A couple earring holes closed enough that I can't push an earring through them. Where should I go to get this taken care of? (NYC or general selection criteria.) [more inside]

Hair autonomy for kids

Parents of school-age-or-older children with long hair (esp. difficult hair), how and when did you transition between the parent handling washing/ upkeep/ styling and the kid taking over all of it? In particular, any ideas for rolling with a hair beginner's normal learning curve while still keeping the outcome fairly presentable for going out in public? [more inside]

Product to protect top of foot inside shoe?

I've bought a bunch of vintage shoes over the years, and I keep running into the problem of the crease over the top of the toes. It often presses down hard and painfully and makes the shoes totally unwearable. [more inside]

Where’s the flood? In my husband’s closet

I have been looking for athletic pants with a 34 inch inseam for my husband. The only ones I can find are in sizes 2XL and up, but my husband has a 34 inch waist. I’ve tried every online retailer I can think of. He prefers track pants but at this point fleece joggers or any kind of pants for exercising would do. [more inside]

A hood that sticks waaaaay out

MeFites, I want a coat with a hood that has (faux) fur trim that I can roll out so it sticks out far past my face to block the sun. From the side, it looks like a periscope. I have seen people wearing such coats (e.g., a men's Canada Goose parka, except that's animal fur). How do I search for this type of hood? Does it have a name? [more inside]

Where do short trans men shop?

I'm a 5'2" AFAB person who is exploring my masculine side and considering what transition would mean to me. I've just started shopping in the men's section, which is like being a kid in a candy store, but alas, usually ends in sadness as I realize I hardly fit into anything there! What stores and tricks am I missing? [more inside]

Make me over?

I'm a 37 year old woman. I need new makeup, specifically foundation. I haven't been wearing any in a while. (And even when I did I was never really satisfied with how it looked.) I've only ever worn drugstore makeup, but decided I needed more help because I obviously don't know what I'm doing. I've read the previous questions about this but am still frustrated. [more inside]

Yellow (or "gold") and black, wool, striped scarf ?

I want to buy, online, a striped scarf like this but made of wool (or at least mainly of wool) . I think in a lot places it might be called a "soccer fan scarf". I also want to know that it was made by people who were treated decently. More inside ... [more inside]

For the ladies – how to wear thin, see-through shirts?

I’ve been cleaning my closet and discovered that I have a bunch of thin, semi see-through shirts that I haven’t worn for a number of years. I must have felt comfortable with them at one time because I did purchase and wear them but I guess now in my more… mature age, I just haven’t been wearing them, leaving them to languish in my closet.

Help me replace my hairbrush!

I have been using the same hairbrush for decades. Literally the same brush, not just the same brand. Help me find a replacement that works in my very thick and wiry hair before my beloved old brush deteriorates completely! [more inside]

How do I learn to make babby... I mean, Icelandic wool sweater

My husband's dream is for me to knit him an intricate Icelandic wool sweater. I... have never knitted a sweater before. I would like to make his dream come true but will obviously need lots of practice with making more basic sweaters and learning to gauge size with much more simple sweater patterns. Does anyone have specific examples of sweater patterns I should start with? Current level of knitting knowledge inside. [more inside]

Can ozone remove odors from wool?

I had a bunch of clothes that I stored with a dry cleaner over the summer and they came back with a weird chemical odor that doesn't go away with airing out. (They cleaned a second time and odor is still there--must just be their process). I've used ozone generators in the past to clean odors from walls and wondered if anyone had experience using this method to remove odor from wool (which seems notoriously hard to rid).

How Can I Make This Shirt Softer?

I have a favorite Dickies brand shirt (just like the one in the link) that is embroidered with my name and a logo. I love this shirt, but its too stiff to wear comfortably. Is there a quick way to soften this shirt without damaging the embroidered parts? Any ideas appreciated. Thanks!

Seemingly Simple Sock Search

I'm looking for something that seems like it would be easy to find: a pair of cotton athletic socks in a variety of solid colors. American Apparel sold a nice pair about a decade ago, but no longer. And nobody else does, either, it would seem. [more inside]

How to prevent and/or cure "sleep dent" in hair

I wash my hair every other day. On the second day, I always, always wake up with a "dent" in my hair (like a part gone wrong) on the back of the crown of my head, which is odd because I sleep on my side, but whatever. The only thing that cures it is to entirely wash and dry my hair again. Simply wetting and drying that portion never works. But maybe you know something I don't? How can I either prevent this or fix it? Would a silk pillowcase help?

Battery heated vest recommendations

I'm looking to give a battery heated vest as a gift this holiday season, but finding it difficult to locate the perfect match. Ideal product would be a women's fit extra small with a not-too-bulky battery and layer well with other clothing. [more inside]

Very specific purse request

Looking for a small purse/wallet with a long adjustable strap. Must be big enough for a normal sized phone and a set of keys, maybe 7” wide? Bonus if it has a clear ID slot. This is for my tween daughter so nothing too pricey. Thanks!
