Ask the Edit Vol. IV, No. Thirty-Three

I have a lot of really fine hair which becomes a static mess as soon as it gets dry out. Can you recommend any hair products or treatments that would help?
There are a few things you can do to minimize hair static. First, you can dry your hair with a
Second, try a hydrating styling cream like this one from Moraccanoil. It fights frizz and static by hydrating and nourishing hair.
Lastly, keep a few dryer sheets in your purse or desk. You can rub them on your hair to eliminate frizz. You can also rub them on your hair brush or comb to prevent frizz.Hi, can you recommend any flat shoes to wear to weddings? In the summer/for casual weddings I often wear strappy sandals or even Jack
Can you recommend any flat shoes to wear to weddings?
To take it even a step further, my IDEAL shoes would not have a strap around the ankle as those can be SO unflattering for those of us who suffer from wide calves! However, I know beggars can’t be choosers and most shoes these days do have ankle straps, so not the end of the world.
Would love any ideas!! Meaghan
Badgley Mischka makes a pair of satin flats with crystals for formal events. These silver glitter flats from Banana Republic are also an option. These affordable sheer flats with crystals are a lot of fun.
If I had to pick a pair for myself, I would choose these gold flats from BHLDN.
I need some advice about inclement weather attire. I live in the PNW and most fall outerwear (like that gorgeous quilted Barbour jacket) comes without a hood. What do you do to stay dry and not wear a plastic poncho all the time? Thanks!
If you must have a hood, this North Face Ancha Parka is a good choice. This Barbour Velum Jacket is the high-test, high style version. For something under-$125, this Land’s End Rain Parka is a good option. This coat also comes in petite and plus-sizes.
I’m looking for a gel moisturizer under-$20. I love the Drunk Elephant one, but it’s just too rich for my bank account.
I’m searching for a faux wrap dress to replace one that I’ve just worn out. Navy or black. Hopefully, under-$175. Have you seen anything?
Wrap dresses and faux wraps are very versatile. You can wear them to work, to dinner, or on the airplane when you need to arrive business ready.
I own this $108 Karen Kane dress, and it’s a wonderful option. Anne Klein also has this $99 navy faux wrap. For something truly affordable, this Charter Club dress comes in a variety of colors for $39.
