Natural-fibre tops, good in hot weather, without ironing?

I need some tops to wear that are comfortably cool in hot weather. I want them to be made of natural fibres (a little elastane would be the exception). (I'd count Tencel as a natural fibre, as it's compostable.) I do have to look reasonably smart, but I'm not going to be ironing my tops. [more inside]

Women’s shoes on concrete

This summer I’m going to an event at a convention center where I’ll be spending three days on a concrete floor. My feet usually kill me. In the past I’ve worn street-style sneakers, like Kangaroos (hence my MetaFilter name, because I kept quarters in the pockets). I’m wondering what’s the best casual shoe on concrete? [more inside]

What kind of haircut do I want?

I'm a cisdude and I'm losing hair at the temples, have been for years. It's getting to the point where it's time to get my (short) hair cut even shorter. I kind of want a high and tight, except I don't want to look like I'm in the marines, also I'd like to continue to read as queer, so I don't want a high and tight. Websites are no help, and I am terrible at explaining what I want done to my hair. Help?

Please, don't stop and smell the roses (or my face!)

My second-ever purchased 100% organic rose water spray, which I'm using as a toner, smells.... strange. It's still kind of rosy, but there's a strong note of something else. I'm calling it "cooked artichoke" for lack of a better description. It's pungent but definitely bearable for one bottle. I can't return it. Can you help me figure out what to do next? [more inside]

Overthinking my Doc Martens

I've just bought some new black Docs and now I have no idea how to wear them. For reference I'm a middle aged, over-weight woman in a suburban New Zealand city where anything goes. I tend to wear straight leg or skinny jeans most of the time with shirts and jackets.

How do I repurpose/commemorate my dad's favorite belongings?

My dad was a simple guy. He wore the same leather jacket and hat for 30 years. He never was without his class ring and his watch. He died a few years back and while I didn't keep many of his possessions, I kept the few things he wore daily. I can't use them in their current form, I can't toss them, so how should I repurpose them? [more inside]

Where are the good-quality merino cardigans?

Where are the good-quality (i.e. not absurdly thin) women's merino cardigans? Just a straight-up crewneck merino cardigan of good weight and durability. I realize it's a terrible time of year to be looking but this is a staple item of my wardrobe and all my good ones are biting the dust. Things I am NOT interested in: cashmere, cotton, tissue-thin anything, V-neck cardigans.

Springing up a shower outfit

I'm attending an out-of-town baby shower in a couple of weeks (late April), in a place where the weather could just as easily be 75 degrees or 5 inches of snow. Help me come up with some tweaks so I don't have to pack half my damn closet. [more inside]
