Plus size kids clothing?

My 10yo (cis-gender) daughter is on the higher end of the weight range (100lbs, 54inches tall). Ms Catalyzer and I are having a hard time finding where to buy clothes that fit her - hopefully with minimal alterations. What are your recommendations?

Skincare 101

I have a hopefully straightforward skincare question but I am getting confused by the information overload available on the web. Very simply: how long does it take for skin to adjust to a new (but still, very basic) skincare routine? I have added a couple extra steps to my routine and now my skin looks good but feels dry and tight. Should I give it a week or two, or is this a clear indication that it isn't working? [more inside]

Is there such a thing as bathrobe-material pajamas?

I'd like something that I can step into after a bath/shower without having to towel off. The most obvious choice is a bathrobe, but I would prefer something tighter fitting. Does this exist? If so, where can I buy it?

What cut of jeans reads as "default" these days?

I need a new pair of jeans, and would really like a satisficing cut/color: something that presents as sleek but unassuming (for a grownup professional), can be worn for smart casual workdays if needed, is not going to make me look like a fashion victim in 2 years. Is this still skinny jeans? If not, what is it? [more inside]

Would it be hard to resize this dress?

I have an old shirtdress that I love but that's starting to get some holes. I found it in a larger size on Ebay (mine is small and this is large). It's a simple dress that's fairly straight, and it has a sash at the waist to make it fitted. Is it possible this could be easily resized by a tailor? Would the collar fit incorrectly?

How do I pants?

Where can I browse pictures of casual (but nicer) men's fashion? I've always been a jeans-and-tee-shirt guy. But I'd like to upgrade to something a little more put-together. [more inside]

Office lady shoes for changing weather?

You're an office lady and wear dresses to work (barelegged in summer, or with leggings in other seasons). You live in a 4-season climate and sometimes you get all 4 seasons in a single day. You use public transportation and your own feet for your daily commute. What kind of shoes do you wear, especially during the transitions between seasons? [more inside]

Men like women's soccer too

I'd like to get my boyfriend a German women's world cup jersey in a men's size medium or large. Does such a thing exist? I haven't been able to find it on the Adidas.

Help me brainstorm an amazing costume idea.

I have a very decadent Halloween party to attend this year and I want to totally slay the costume. I am a fairly experienced costumer, as I live in New Orleans (we dress up for literally any reason at all). Normally I LOVE coming up with a costume concept, figuring out how to execute it, doing all the crafting, and applying elaborate makeup. This year, I'm drawing a complete blank, and I've got less than a month to pull this together. Help! [more inside]

Has anyone found a brand of ankle socks that don't slip down?

It's not so much a problem when I wear sneakers, although it can be. It's mostly a problem when I wear leather shoes/short boots that dip below the ankle. Also, the utopian ankle socks I'm imagining would fit comfortably at the toe, to counter ingrown toenail tendencies.

Explain Boris Johnson's look to me, please?

I'm an American, and I always thought Brits who are posh or wealthy or in top levels of government made a big deal about their super-perfectly tailored suits from Saville Row. So please explain to me, a totally ignorant outsider, why Boris Johnson is always so rumpled, with his pants hanging down and his shirt blousing out from the waistline. Is this a purposeful affectation to send a message? Is he just a slob? I'm sure there are levels of this that I can't even begin to know as a person from Los Angeles, so please explain them to me.

Does the tote bag I'm looking for exist?

I'm trying to find a tote bag with specific features, namely: boxy in shape (i.e. not tapered at the top), zippered top, roughly 15 to 20 liters in volume, uncomplicated design, neutral or vaguely-masculine style. I want something I can carry everyday to a casual office, pack with clothes for an overnight trip, or take with me on a plane (preferably stowed under the seat). Can you help me find one?

How to wear dresses and not freeze?

I love the idea of switching my work wardrobe to mostly dresses, but I'm not sure what to wear under them. Right now I have a few dresses that I can wear with black leggings and ankle boots, but any dress that doesn't work with leggings I only wear in spring and summer. [more inside]
