My hands need a hand…

Do you use a lotion/cream on your hands to reduce wrinkles and creases? I’m not looking for a miracle here, just wondering if there’s anything that will make my hands look a bit younger. I do not have age spots—just your average almost sixty year old hands.

Protect the enamel in an enamel pin?

I have an enamel pin that I have not been kind to -- it's lived on the outside of my much-used backpack. Understandably, several of the enamel bits have fallen out. If I were to buy a replacement pin, is there something I can do -- a coating, perhaps? -- to keep the enamel from falling out again? Or should I just give up on the idea of an enamel pin that stands up to heavy use?

Washing hand-painted blue jeans 🧥

My son has a hand-painted blue jeans jacket he bought two years ago. He's never washed it, but would like to. Is it safe to put it in the washer, or should we hand wash it? Is there anything we need to add to make sure the paint doesn't come off? [more inside]

Is the Uniqlo in Stonestown Galleria, San Francisco worth it?

I'm in San Francisco on the west side and my go to Uniqlo on Powell Street is apparently closed for good. My map says I can go to the one in Emeryville on my way home, or there's another one all the way on the other side of the peninsula at Stonestown Galleria. If it was a bigger/better store with more selection I'd go out of my way but if they all have the same stuff or you guys aren't sure I will just go to Emeryville. Thanks!!

Store for teen girls that helps you create outfit in Toronto?

I need to get an outfit for my 15-year-old developmentally delayed daughter to attend a couple of awards ceremonies/grads next week. I'm looking for something respectable-ish, don't take attention away from the grads but look nice. But I am completely lost. I've browsed online, I just got back from Winners, and I have no idea whatsoever. Is there a store in or near downtown Toronto that I could walk into with her, say, "Help us find an outfit" with a description as vague as the one I've just given, and get someone to help us put something together head-to-toe for $100-$150?

I paid for a terrible haircut; what now?

A few days ago, I went to stylists to fix hair I initially messed up myself. About 2 months ago, I got it in my head I wanted a wolf cut and did it myself. It didn't go well. After 2 months of growing my hair out and hiding it in hairbands, I tried to get fixed, seeing two hair stylists. Its the worst haircut I've had in my life. [more inside]

How many wears (not months) before you wash selvedge jeans?

Everything I've read so far says not to wash them for 6 months. Which I assume means when you're wearing them once or twice a week. But what if you're wearing them every day? (And a lot of full days with exercise and effort) So what's the minimum number of days actually worn you want to do before you wash the jeans?

Help me find a perfume for my mom!

My mom has asked me to buy her a bottle of perfume. She likes trying out new brands, so I don't want to just buy her another bottle of something she already likes. But I don't know much about fragrances so I don't know what to get her. Any suggestions? Perfumeheads of Mefi, this would probably be an easy one for you. [more inside]

Understanding clothing fashions of recent decades?

Are there any good ways to understand the clothing fashion trends of recent decades? I feel like I understand the key styles of several decades ago--or at least recent cultural parodies that we see of them--but without critical distance, it is hard to understand fashion trends of the most recent decades. Are there books, videos, timelines, or other ways to understand the key differences between fashions of, say, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015, and 2020??
