On Cancel "What Americans Will Look Like in 2050"

"Look at how beautiful it is to see everything diluted that we used to hate" right on the money with that one!

I was also thinking when I looked at this photo - where is the cancer and the obesity, and the hair loss, and the skin rashes and the radiation poisoning all the other detrimental aspects of our modern environment that are obviously going to be a major issue in the future.

@AmandaElsewhere I live in Calgary and there is a consignment store that caters specifically to +sizes, I'd check the yellow pages to see if something similar exists in your area.

On Ask A Costume Historian: Help, My Brother Wants Me To Be His Suit-Wearing Best Man

I have always been obsessed with menswear and was pretty frustrated when my flat-as-a-board chest blossomed into that of a well endowed woman. I can say, that high waisted dress pants and a nicely fitted vest can look amazing on a curvaceous lady. Make it girly with a long black kimono jacket or something. Here's some Pinterest Inspiration! http://www.pinterest.com/jennietwoshoes/women-in-menswear/

On Ask a Fancy Person: Entry-Level Expensive, Unwanted Guests and the Gratefulness Feedback Loop

also #1 lady, if you are already regularily hosting guests, might as well fire up Air B&B,people who don't know you are not going to expect you to spend time with them in the same way, you could make some extra money if you wanted, but also have an excuse "sorry aunt Bertha, I have a paying guest that weekend. "....

yes to #3 and the Kitchen Knives, I am always berating people for having terrible knives ( a sharper knife is not more dangerous people!, it just makes you feel like a super ninja when you cook!)

On Ask a Jeweler: A Beginner’s Guide to Pearls

I'm a bit of a vintage jewelry scavenger and I recently lucked out and found a strand of vintage pearls in a thrift store for $4,a lot of the time those shops especially the smaller ones are not really aware of what they have, especially if your visiting one in a small town ! always look at the jewelry cabinet!!!! When you are on your next road trip do stop in the small town and check out those tiny pokey shops, in this way I have found pearls, strands of jet and recently a 1950s brass and coral number with matching earrings, read up online about basic sneaky ways to test their authenticity, even if you mess up, if you like the piece who cares, most of the retro costume jewelry is much nicer than the modern stuff anyhow ! Also if you do manage to find a deal on a genuine strand in a style your not totally into, you can easily have them re-strung in a more contemporary style.
