My Détachment

I would like to own this A Détacher brass choker. Unfortunately it's $400, and if that weren't enough, it's also sold out everywhere I've seen it for sale online. I can't find it second-hand on Ebay, Etsy, Poshmark, etc, and realistically probably couldn't afford it even then. Instead help me find duplicates, hopefully lower-priced ones. [more inside]

17" women's workout capris

I'm looking for 17-inch workout capris. I like when they reach just below the knee, but not the 20-inch ones that are popular now. They reach mid-calf and feel weird. [I want something like these but in a medium- thin, base-layer type or regular legging are fine. [more inside]

Looking for information on what it takes to learn to make clothing

I know it's not easy! Then again, I don't need to make it particularly quickly, so I figure it balances out? Regardless, I've always been interested in making clothing, but initially felt it was "not masculine," (ugh) and now am afraid about how much time it would get to get decent. Snowflake details within! [more inside]

Who made my favorite jeans and can I get more?

A few years ago, I picked up an amazing pair of jeans thrift shopping and they quickly became my favorite pair. Can you help me reveal their mysterious, perhaps eldritch origin? [more inside]

Does this bit of vanity require a physician?

I’m fine with my grey hair. I’m less fine with a few spots on my face. If I want to get rid of them, is this a medical matter or can they do it at spa type places that do laser hair removal and such? [more inside]

Who made these perfect black leggings?

A few years ago, I found perfect PERFECT black, 2x size, thick cotton, heavily elasticated, wide waist leggings that are only just now starting to get a little worn out. The tag has sadly faded and I bought them in a Ross/Marshalls type store in Manhattan so don’t know who made them! Please, please help me find them! I will be eternally grateful! [more inside]

Can you identify this shawl that Selina wore in VEEP?

I would like to know the designer of this shawl that Selina Meyer wore in Season 7, episode 2 of Veep. This website apparently auctioned the entire outfit and they identify the designer of each piece EXCEPT the shawl! All it says is "cashmere." There's a front and a back photo on that site. Bonus question -- where can I buy a similar shawl, preferably ethically made?

Like this necklace but cheaper!

I really like this necklace. It is sterling silver, long and has a geometric, somewhat minimalist pendant. It seems versatile, and I would be able to wear it with jeans or when dressed up. The problem is that it is a wee bit out of my price range. Can you help me find something similar?

What are the basic knowledge blocks of skincare?

I recently put some effort into learning the Curly Girl method and related info about caring for curly hair. The basic knowledge blocks have been more useful than specific advice, product recs, etc. (Examples inside.) What's the equivalent for skincare? [more inside]

What do I need to know about sewing stretchy fabrics 101

Sewers, (I mean seamstresses, not pootubes), I have lost weight due to thyroid meds and I'm thinking about doing stuff with my many t-shirts that now expose great expanses of my bra. But I have in my mind that one needs an overlocker to sew stretchy fabric, and I don't think I'm ready to buy something that I have to find storage for, that I might use once a year. [more inside]

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?
