I have a personal shopper request that I've been stumped on. My girlfriend has been looking for some gold/metallic shimmer shorts all spring. Not lame-spandex type shorts, but actual cut shorts. Either a metallic material or sequin. I've barely been able to find anywhere that's selling these, and those that are, cost a fortune. Any help?"
Ryan, you go shopping for your girlfriend? When are you receiving your Perfect Man Award? You're in luck, anyway; this is a great year for gold shorts, and plenty of them sport a classy cut, rather than the off-duty stripper look. Here are five affordable picks - hope you see one she'll love!

Crazy Jane here: I'm a New England girl with couture tastes and a Salvation Army budget who usually ends up wearing flannel. My shopping forte: finding the impossible dream. Throw your tough stuff at me and let me go bloodhound on it. When not playing on Outblush, I'm probably yelling at my cats, getting a backrub from my hot teacher husband, or trying to turn anything animal, vegetable, or mineral I can get my hands on into booze.
