I Once Had a Pair of Flowing, Loose, Silky, Bohemian Pants - Need Name

I had a pair of really nice and very loose Boho/Gypsy/Hippie cocktail/lounging pants/trousers (for women) in a paisley print of browns. The material was man-made but felt like silk. You could bunch up the entire pair and it would be the size of a medium sized orange. Or less. The material was ribbed. I think that's key. Tiny folds. The waist was elastic. Very, very light-weight.

Used shirt has weird smell

If you've ever been in a used clothing store, you know they have a particular odor to them. It's a sort of faint, musty smell that's unique to used clothing. I don't know what causes it, but that particular smell can't be found anywhere else. I bought a used jacket from a military surplus store on eBay and it has that smell, only a hundred times stronger. Normally that odor doesn't bother me, but this is overpowering. [more inside]

Where can I find these sunglasses I used to have?

Where can I find some glasses like some few year old Arnette catfish white sunglasses that were stolen from me? I can find them all over google, just not with this sort of black inside trim I had before, and not as sturdy. Anyone know a direction to point me in?

Can’t bring sexy back if I didn’t have it in the first place!

I’ve been cast in a role in a musical that is very much outside of my comfort zone - the sexy, busty, leggy blonde love interest. I’m a woman in my thirties who was never dated and has always been chubby and not overly comfortable with my body. How do I, over the course of the next two months, figure out how to play sexy on stage? [more inside]

Gift advice for my soon-to-be 15-year-old niece

When her older sister turned 15, we bought her a pre-trendy (pre-Urban Outfitters inventory) Fjallraven backpack, which she loved. Kids at her school had never seen one (except the European exchange students), and she got major cool points for having something unavailable at any local mall or shop. Now it's time for the younger sister. Help me find something cool that no other kid in Tampa, Florida will have. [more inside]

Not-slim-cut men's linen shirt please

Where can I find a reasonably-priced, decent quality linen shirt for a man with a bit of a belly? Uniqlo would ordinarily be my go-to ($20!!) but I think they're probably too fitted.

Baby foot peel with blisters?

Can I do a baby foot peel if I have an unpopped blister? This article says not to if you have open cuts, but I'm not sure if that applies to unpopped blisters as well. Does anybody know or have first-hand experience? This is the foot peel in question.

Find Me Sandals!

Currently, I spend all summer wearing Saltwater Sandals to work, to go out, anything where Chuck Taylors seems inappropriate. It has been mentioned to me that they are the standard shoe for toddlers at the beach, and that they look like it. Except they're everything I want in a sandal! Can you point me at something that has all the same virtues but maybe looks slightly less preschool? Snowflakes about what I see as the virtues below. [more inside]

Toddler Cat Underwear - Boys

Toxic Masculinity starts young. Toddler Kitty is potty training and really loves cats. We have to pick out the cat design diapers especially just for him. When we run out, we put a cat stamp on a different designed diaper to make them a cat design. A huge motivator for him in potty training would be special cat underwear for him. But there are almost NO boys underwear that have cats on them. Help me find underwear for my son. [more inside]
