What else can I put in my heels?

I just scored a pair of these shoes on EBay... the heels are removable and you can put anything inside. They were also originally sold filled with glitter, as well as Barbie doll heads. My first instinct would be to put fish inside, but that would be too cruel to the fish so I'm NOT willing to do that. But I would love more ideas! Ideally nothing too expensive or heavy, though I doubt I'll be doing any distance walking in them, so some weight is probably manageable. And I don't know if they're actually watertight. Ideas?

Appropriate attire in Las Vegas?

My (also female) best friend and I are taking a trip to Las Vegas in a few weeks to attend a few shows (among them, a bucket list concert). I've never been to Las Vegas longer than a flight layover. I'm also a plus sized uncool introvert. What on earth should I wear? [more inside]

Sci-fi clothing for the real world?

I am watching Star Trek: Discovery and: those are some fine-looking uniforms! Such a pretty blue, nice high collar, sparkly bits, unisex. I’ve been thinking how cool it would be if I could wear something kind of like a Star Fleet uniform? And yet, not look like I’m cosplaying, or in pajamas. [more inside]

Nostril piercing 101

I’m interested in getting a very tiny stud in my nostril. I’ve had a bunch of ear piercings but that’s it. What should I know? (Am 40, dry skin, tendency toward nasal congestion, if that’s helpful.)

Help an overweight androgynous woman dress to impress!

I will be having more occasions at which I need to dress more formally (maybe at two different levels of formality above blue jeans). I am mainly looking for recommendations about pants. But I am also open to suggestions about tops, blazers and shoes. I am also open to thoughts on accessories that aren’t too femme. [more inside]

Cool t-shirts from non white musicians/bands?

About 6 months ago I started wearing only jeans + cool band tshirts, mostly from bands/artists you've never heard of; mostly local or regional. A lot of southerny stuff, newgrass, etc. Old 97's, Jason Isbell, War and Treaty, Blind Pilots, She Returns From War, Great Peacock. They're almost all white! Can you suggest cool tshirts from talented, non white artists/bands? Understated, graphic, dark colors? Regional (SE) preferred?

Looking for denim jeans that will hold my iPhone safely

I usually wear Levi 505 jeans and like them but the rear pocket where I store my iPhone 6 is barely deep enough to hold the phone. It frequently starts to work its way out of the pocket. Looking for better solution. [more inside]

Explain facials

I have a gift certificate for a "hydrating facial". I have no idea what a facial is. Insight and advice is solicited. I'm old; do no skin care or makeup. Before I make a call to them (not any website available for review) how do I navigate this unknown world?

They discontinued my pants! Please help me find new ones.

For a few glorious years I could buy two models of pants from Uniqlo - their ultra stretch skinny chino, and their stretch skinny-fit color jeans. But they've discontinued them both, and their replacement chino and jean models just don't do it for me. [more inside]

I would like the cutest low-heeled shoes or flats please and thank you.

I got a cool new job that affords me some fashion flexibility. One aspect of it is that I sometimes have to walk across downtown to appear in public with not a lot of notice looking professional. [more inside]

It's mid-February and *now* you want to buy a winter coat?

My anti-shopping SO has finally admitted that he might need outerwear heavier than a Patagonia fleece, even for a mild northern CA winter. Complications: it's the tail end of winter shopping season and he's an uncommon size... [more inside]

How can I fix these boots to be wearable?

I have a pair of Baretraps boots with ~2" heel, and they are terribly uncomfortable. The problem seems like the outer mid-foot/outside arch area is too high maybe? The soles are hard as rocks and that particular area weirdly is where all the weight lands, not the heel or the ball. I stuck in a pair of half-sole heel gel inserts, and they helped some but still not great. What can I do to fix this? Would a cobbler be able to help?
