How do you wear a winter coat with a blazer?

I find myself in the realm of needing to wear a winter coat on a regular basis in the nearish future. A winter coat with other layers underneath. As a person who really hates cold, and owns a few blazers, I am hoping to wear them sometimes with a winter coat. But how? Is it as simple as wearing a blazer to the store and finding a coat the fits over the blazer? And oh god, how do you do that?

I need more information about advocating for myself in the American Health Care system

So this was me commenting a bit ago about how some views toward health care actually damage the lives of real people. And now I need advice, because the situation has grown so far out of my control and I think I’ll go out of my mind with worry.

Songs like Melanie Safka's Brand New Key?

"I'm really enjoying Melanie Safka's Brand New Key right now for a particular mood I'm in. What other songs convey that angsty 'I really want to keep having hot sex with you, but you could care less' while being relatively upbeat?" asking for a friend. I never thought I'd say that, and I always thought it was baloney.

Choosing shower floor tile shouldn't be this hard.

Now I need help choosing tile for the shower floor. Is the one I picked going to hurt me? I know you are not my tile setter but I've got to order tile soon. Testing the tile before ordering is not an option.

Need specific inspiration images for shabby chic bathroom.

I need inspiration for an impending South Florida master bathroom remodel. I like a shabby chic style, and I understand the principles, but desperately need specific images for a bathroom that totals 45 sq feet outside of the shower stall, and probably more like 30-35 sq feet once you subtract the water closet.

“I still have my feet on the ground, I just wear better shoes.” Oprah

Shoes for a man. From a woman who knows only the barest bit more about fashion than he does. Difficulty: for an engineer who wears mostly khaki slacks and jeans, wants to look a little sharper at work, and wants to be more comfortable working out and dancing (resoling for dancing is perfectly fine). Bonus points: men's 11 AAA (yes, that's 3 A).
