A Quick Winter Fashion Tip:
We all love wearing leather & suede boots in the winter, but if you’re like me, you’re always dealing with pesky salt lines forming or your stompers! After a stint outside in the snow, dry your shoes off and use a damp cloth to prevent salt lines from forming. If it’s already too late, a simple mixture of equal parts water and white vinegar will do the trick. Just dampen a cloth and lightly rub; do not soak the material, for that may cause further damage to one of the most prized assets of your winter wardrobe.
