    Basically I NEED this bag but it's been sold and Charming Charlie's no longer carries it. Can anyone help me find something similar? I realize this is pretty out style now so I've been having trouble finding anything close that's NOT on poshmark. I also wouldn't mind something with some beaded embellishments. [https://poshmark.com/listing/Charming-Charlie-Fringe-Crossbody-Purse-5a5a24adb7f72b50ca48713f](https://poshmark.com/listing/Charming-Charlie-Fringe-Crossbody-Purse-5a5a24adb7f72b50ca48713f) Thank you so much! I've tried Free People, Anthropologie, random google searches...Any direction would be appreciated!

    Looking to buy a pair of sleek, flat, black leather ankle boots (most likely lace up style). Want them to be really sleek and tall enough to wear under slightly cropped pants (dislike the trend living in a wintery climate but they are the only pants I could buy this season :/ ) as well as look good with dresses with black tights. A slight heel is ok, but I really want flat boots to be able to walk everywhere in them. Something similar to Doc Martins Delphine but sleeker, or a lace up granny boot but without the strangely shaped heel. I think the lacing needs to start quite low on the foot in order to get a really tight fit while being able to get your foot in the boot! I put together a [Pinterest board](https://www.pinterest.se/jchow000/flats-comfortable-shoes-for-work/sleek-lace-up-boot/) with the direction I'm looking for, though none of them really hit the mark. They must be leather, not vegan. Preferably in the 200-300 Euro($200-300) price range since I find that lower priced boots are often not the quality I'm looking for, and available to purchase in Europe. All packages that come from outside Europe are slapped with a customs charge, and returns are pricey. :( ​

    How the hell do you style a matching pantsuit? I see it everywhere! I can't help but to look like a dork wearing pyjamas out. I bought a matching set with large vertical stripes. Nautical feel and apt for the spring/summer. However, I feel like I can only pull them off as separates.

    Where can I find a similar sweater at a lower price point? I love these colors together and the wide stripes but I’d need to spend $30 or less :( https://www.madewell.com/crofton-striped-pullover-sweater-in-coziest-yarn-99105169606.html?source=googlePLA&noPopUp=true&srcCode%3APaid_Search%7CShopping_Brand%7CGoogle%7CMWGGBS00002_99105169606_184288007_11764431167_293946777986_m_pla_online__9021521&gclsrc=aw.ds&&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIy7Kt3f_I3gIVq6GzCh2cUgu2EAQYASABEgLRBfD_BwE

    Any belt recommendations? I lost my favorite plain black leather belt over a year ago and I still haven’t been able to replace it. Every time I look in stores it seems that they only have XL or XXL in stock. Can I get some casual belts for weekend jeans and professional belts for work slacks? Do they make anything that will work for both?

    I am attending a masquerade themed company party and plan to wear a maxi-length cobalt blue halter neck sequin dress. What should the color of my shoes and mask be? Black might be a safe choice, but will the contrast be too much? How about silver? For reference, I have black hair and eyes, light olive skin tone, and probably will go will red lipstick.

    Emergency help needed! I got roped into a flashmob dance thing tomorrow and all the bulletin that was sent out says is "Indian street wear/typical flash mob clothing." Does anyone have ideas? I'm thinking my black moto leggings, leather Adidas and some kind of cool top but I'm not sure.

    I went to a bridal appointment this afternoon and *really* loved this [wedding dress](https://imgur.com/a/VRaM1N1), but I’m worried it’s a little too simple (despite my trying on several lacy dresses and not liking any of them). There is beading on the straps but it’s very subtle (and I’m not 100% sold on beading anyway so I might order it with plain straps... which would make it even more simple). Would a lace sash like [this](https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/500683081/leaf-lace-wedding-belt-leaf-lace-wedding?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=lace%20wedding%20belt&ref=sr_gallery-3-20) or [this](https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/498358878/lace-bridal-sash-your-choice-of-ribbon?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=lace%20bridal%20sash&ref=sr_gallery-1-30&col=1) add a nice detail, or do you think it’s bridal enough on its own?

    Super random question, but do you think this outfit is too posh for my little cousin to wear ice skating? So my aunt (who is rich) bought this outfit for her, and she is going skating with her class next week. Should I be worried that she will be made fun of for wearing "posh" clothes to a skating rink?

    I’m looking to replace/upgrade my winter loungewear. Does anyone have recommendations for (1) sweatpants and (2) sweatshirts that fit the following criteria: * Cheap (<$30 but <$20 is even better) * Thick and warm (but **NOT** that godawful ultra-static-y “fleece” material) * Solid neutral colors (no logos, text, etc.) * Sweatpants: With pockets, and elastic around the ankle. * Sweatshirts: Pullover with a pocket in the middle. Thanks in advance! I've found a few decent options before from Target and Old Navy but they're all discontinued now :(

    Does anyone have any experience with the current season coats from Uniqlo? I'm trying to decide between the ultra light down hooded coat or the seamless down shirt coat. Also open to other options for coats.

    I know I asked this before but I’m going to see Drake soon and this is super last minute so if you know of anything at target. I’m already planning on wearing some slightly longer than ankle skinny ripped jeans (actually fit like regular length but a little short) and big gold hoop earrings and I’m wondering what top and shoes I should wear with them? Nothing like bodysuits or too tight/revealing also it’s gonna be in the high 30’s so it will be cold I but usually just wear long sleeves or a heavy sweater type top or something with a sweater so I don’t have to lug a coat with me.

    Is there a way to un-stretch ponte pants? My ponte pants have stretched a lot in the butt, and I have a pretty flat butt to begin with. I don't want to try shrinking them because they will then be too short.

    thunderpebble

    I thrifted a beautiful black silk tunic the other day. There was a spot in the front on the very bottom that wasn't all that noticeable, so no biggie. Took it into the dry cleaners and now there is a gigantic ring around the spot from where they tried to treat it, the whole area is discolored now. I'm a little disappointed but I understand these things happen. Since it's a tunic I am considering having that whole area cut and hem it into a shirt... is this a terrible idea? Should I just cut my losses and toss it or would it be worth a shot to salvage it?

    Hi I'm a guy but I'm looking to get a dressier coat for my Aunt as a Christmas present. She's an older woman (late 40s) around 5'4 I believe and she likes classier/timeless styles. I'm thinking of getting faux fur collar coat somehow. These are some of the options I have in mind.

    Hi! Sorry for another interview outfit post, but I'm hoping this one is different than the rest. I have an interview coming up soon, and I lost quite a bit of weight recently, so none of my interview outfits fit me anymore (my current office is casual so I haven't had to buy any). &#x200B; I'm pretty stuck trying to find an interview outfit that's true to my style since, well, this stuff is expensive and I don't want to shell out a ton of money on something I'm going to wear once every few years. If I spend a lot of money on clothes, I want to get good use out of them. I'm finding blazers alone for about $170+ (which is a yikes for me). That being said, I'm kinda torn between my choices for an outfit I want to wear... *and if a blazer is really, truly necessary for an interview.* Blazers are the most expensive part of a pantsuit, and all the cheap ones I've seen from F21 probably look really cheap up close as well. My first choice was a navy blazer + navy trousers, brown/tan pointed toe heels, and either a minimal floral print button down or striped button down (similar to [this](https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/CrQAAOSwZlZZ8XEL/s-l300.jpg)). I just can't seem to find matching navy sets that aren't $600+, and I'm striking out with plain navy pieces that don't have weird quirks about them (zippers, weird cutouts, piping, and navy shades that don't match which is MY BIGGEST STRUGGLE). So I'm left to the following choices: [Dark green suit with floral button down and heels.](https://www.whitehouseblackmarket.com/store/product/luxe+suiting+jacket/570244980?color=2102&catId=cat6219285) I've read that green is a color to avoid in interviews, but this looks so classy and pretty to me. Is it still seen as too casual? I've also found [a suit that's an even darker green](https://www.nyandcompany.com/7th-avenue-soft-madie-blazer/A-prod15330010/?An=103644&prodNo=4) that I really love. Or even [these pants](https://www.express.com/clothing/women/mid-rise-skinny-columnist-pant/pro/07479559/cat1910070) (I'd have to go blazer-less with these). [This cardigan](https://www.modcloth.com/shop/tops/collectif-collectif-x-mc-stitch-upon-a-star-embroidered-cardigan-in-navy/160313.html) with maybe a white collared button-up underneath, tucked into grey plaid trousers? Or black trousers? And white heels? Or navy heels? Idk, but I like that cardigan a lot. A plaid/check suit ([example 1](https://www.zara.com/us/en/checkered-skinny-pants-p07901237.html?v1=6509668&v2=1074677), [example 2](https://www.zara.com/us/en/plaid-jacket-p02753238.html?v1=7132003&v2=1074677)). Now, this is right up my alley. If a pattern for the pants and jacket is too much going on, I already have a plaid blazer that I could pair with navy or black trousers. I'm just a little uncertain if plaid is seen as too busy or unprofessional for an interview setting. Also, the blazer I already have is "oversized"..... I also looooove all black, but I'm afraid that might be too daunting and dark for an interview. Would it work if it's done well, like [this](http://fashiongum.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Power-Suits-For-Women-Street-Style-Looks-15.jpg)? Also, are ankle boots with trousers a no-go for an interview? Like [this](https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AcDmAHiXe5XTPn9hhWthBN9867Z566EdR3G_8WLzdi09__dF2mUL0SA/)? And [this](https://www.pinterest.com/pin/470063279835166643/)? I have a billion pairs of ankle boots, but not a single pair of closed toe heels. What about wide leg crops? Like [this](https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AQmXPPJSJcJ_-QXJi9t0y_idKSrlrDXscx3rNbGEX0XDthClKDfnPJw/)? Because holy crap I love that outfit. And finally, my last choice, some [basic navy trousers](https://www2.hm.com/en_us/productpage.0524825014.html) with a nice blouse and heels (or a sweater?). No blazer here because I can't freakin' find one that matches. I know what you're saying in the interview is more important, but I want to look well-dressed to my sartorial standards and style. Something like [this](https://cpd.degroote.mcmaster.ca/wp-content/themes/cpd/images/business/b-img12.jpg) sounds awful to me, and I can't see myself wearing that type of outfit. It's so great for some people and their career choices!!!! But not for me. :) This is with an entertainment company. I'd *love* it if I could get away with wearing an all [velvet](https://www.pinterest.com/pin/ASbOfAO03E7w9_9_hm58Req3ecifahp-o9rt1Aey0mwzDKqNE0dcGp0/) or [corduroy](https://www.stories.com/en_usd/clothing/trousers/corduroy-trousers/product.kick-flare-corduroy-pants-orange.0529947003.html) suit with a turtleneck and ankle boots, but that's street style, not interview appropriate (but OH HOW I WISH IT WAS). Any recruiters out there, hiring managers, and/or anyone who has the same problem/style as me, have any advice? I seriously hate "interview fashion" and the style rules it comes with so I'm really struggling here lol. Paris and London street styles are my jam, and I can't find anything I like that doesn't break some type of interview fashion "rule" . (PS, stores like JCrew, Ann Taylor, etc. are out of my price range)

    Hey, this is silly, but how do y’all handle going to the restroom when you are wearing a big, heavy winter coat like a parka? The thought of having to hike it up, pee in a public restroom sounds like a recipe for accidentally having my clothing touch something. Same thing goes for maxi dresses. I’m always worried mine will touch something, like holding it under my arms for the length of a poo sounds risky 😂 Tl;dr i’m a germophobe

    I would love a pair of leather look leggings that aren't too shiny or disco like. I'm 34 and a size 6 or 8. So a little bit rock and roll but not too over the top. Does anyone have a favorite? Budget under $200.

    Any suggestions for slightly higher quality body suits? I'm just looking for items [like this](https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0779RB5KW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1), but everything is cheap garbage. I would be willing to spend up to maybe $60-$70 for something that will actually last (can't afford Wolford). I thought about just buying dance leotards, but I really want thong cut suits (maybe I could have a tailor modify them??).

    I have two events with the same people on two different days, dress code is business formal. The first event is a cocktail reception/dinner, and the second event is a panel interview. I have one suit that I plan to wear to the panel interview, but I'm a bit stumped on what to wear to dinner. I have a [dress](https://www.ofmercer.com/collections/dresses/products/black-greenwich-dress) from Of Mercer that I really like (it's flattering and not revealing), but are bare arms unprofessional? If so, can I pair a contrasting blazer (e.g. grey) and still stay within the business professional dress code?

    Chazzyphant

    Okay, here's a maybe obvious solution question that has plagued me for years: Woven shirts including silk are almost always too thin and light for me during winter to wear without a sweater over top to my smart casual FRIGID office. Okay, fine. No biggie. Sweaters over knits or over wovens. Honestly though, I'm busty and carry extra weight in my midsection. I don't need MORE bulk there, and a woven under a sweater usually feels and looks...boxy. However, knit shirts are warmer but too casual really most of the time for work! Sometimes I just want to throw on a simple top and pants outfit and not do the silk shirt under a heavy sweater thing, but knit tops only feels under-done! Also most of my knits are too stiff/boxy to really be comfortable under a sweater, and even a blazer layer isn't warm enough. I run hot usually! But two woven layers (shirt + blazer) feels uncomfortably chilly to me. Any solutions here? I'm in a very relaxed office dress code world--like anything but ripped jeans, offensive slogan tees and leggings as pants probably would fly, but *personally* wearing casual knits as tops just doesn't do it for me but I'm freezing!! AUGH. Any help? (Maybe a selection of sophisticated work friendly heavier knits?)

Every pair of joggers I seem to try on with them makes my thighs look huge or my legs look short, and I would also prefer wearing some other kind of pants than jeans. Any advice?

    Bebe_bear

    So I posted last week about this, but I’m going to a bridal shower tomorrow with my future MIL for my partner’s cousin. It’s a lunchtime event at a restaurant and I had finally picked out an outfit- a cute grey suede miniskirt, a pink silk scalloped long-sleeve blouse, black tights, black ankle boots, and a darker grey/black oversized vest. However, I just found out my FMIL is wearing leggings and a tunic top- does that mean I’m going to be overdressed? She is generally very stylish (although much more “country club” than my style) and I just want to be totally unobtrusive with my outfit! Should I wear jeans and a sweater instead? Leggings? Corduroys? Is my original outfit okay? This will be the first bridal shower I’ll attend and I know this cousin is weirdly competitive with me, so I want to look nice but also not overly attention-getting (since I am also engaged and this will be the first time I’ll see his side of the family since we got engaged). Help me please FFA!

    Are there any brands that make classic, smaller faced watches but digital? My mom is getting older and her eyesight isn’t what it used to be and she has trouble seeing her tiny analog watch. Trouble is she’s very petite so chunky watches would look ridiculous on her and she likes timeless metal band watches so anything sporty or rubber would be out. The closest thing I’ve found so far are those fossil smartwatches but I think those might still be too big for her. Would like to stay under the $200 price point.

    I have an interview at a temp agency next week. I have blazers, skirts, pants, but no actual suit. Is it okay to wear coordinated separates? I'm also considering [this dress](http://imgur.com/a/kIWIvja), but worried it's not interview-y enough... The rep mentioned they work with a lot of tech start-ups. Thanks!

    Anybody checked out [Universal Standard](https://www.universalstandard.com/)? Looking for feedback on fit/quality. I'm on the smaller end of their size chart (12/14), but it seems that the smaller sizes keep the plus-sized proportions. I have a larger waist so if that's true, it would be great. I'm also interested if anyone has used their Fit Liberty program. I've been losing weight, and buying clothes a little small so I could get more wear out of them. It would be great to be able to buy the correct size then exchange for a new size once they got too big!

    The AllSaints sale is really tempting since I've been wanting a leather jacket for forever! I'm considering the [Bales](https://www.us.allsaints.com/women/leather/allsaints-bales-biker-/) or the [Dalby](https://www.us.allsaints.com/women/leather/allsaints-dalby-biker/?colour=5&category=25). I'm a little concerned that the Bales is a little lopsided when not done up all the way. If anyone owns these jackets, I was hoping you wouldn't mind talking about your experience? I'm on the shorter side at 5'2. :) Also, I really wish that the [Balfern](https://www.us.allsaints.com/women/leather/allsaints-balfern-biker/?colour=5&category=25) didn't have that belt at the bottom! That's the only thing that takes it from beautiful/amazing to unwearable for me. o:(
