Handbags at A Glance

2014-04-11_163554

Pick the Right Handbag

When shopping for a new handbag this season, consider your body type. Not every handbag is ideal for every woman. Generally speaking when it comes to handbags, the opposite shape of your body type is the most flattering.

TALL AND THIN
Choose handbags with a short, slouchy shape like the hobo. Avoid shoulder bags with a short strap as they will make you look even taller. Select handbags that are wider than they are tall. A clutch is a good choice.

PETITE
Despite what you see in Hollywood, oversized bags aren’t for small women. Large bags tend to overwhelm your frame. Avoid shoulder bags with a long strap as they will weigh you down, making you look even shorter.

PLUS-SIZE
Pick a large structured or boxy bag to balance out your curves. Don’t carry a bag that is too small as it will make you look larger. If you love prints, steer clear of tiny patterns.

EVERYONE
There’s no need to spend $500 or more on a bag that will rarely make it out of your closet. If you are buying several inexpensive bags, pick one classic everyday bag in black or brown. Then, experiment with fun, funky styles and metallics for your other bags.

How to Clean Your Boots

Part 1 of 3: Readying the Boots for Cleaning

A. Remove loose dirt and debris.
Brush off each boot with a brush or a towel to remove any dirt particles. Don’t forget the bottom of the boots. The soles are especially likely to pick up loose dirt and gravel that can be brushed off easily before cleaning. Brushes work better than towels simply because they can get into the nooks and crannies of the boots, however, be careful when using a brush on leather boots, as brushes with very hard bristles may scratch the leather.

B. Remove the shoelaces(if applicable). 

Take the shoelaces from each boot and wash those by hand. Wash them in warm soapy water until all of the dirt has been removed. For a thoroughly clean, scrub them together with the soap and then soak them in warm water. Hang them out to dry. You could also include them in a load of laundry in a washing machine. Keep in mind that if they are really dirty, you will probably want to wash them separately from your other clothes.

Part 2 of 3: Cleaning the Boots

A. Clean the soles.
Rinse the rubber soles of the boots with water. Scrub them with a mild dish soap, using a toothbrush. Using a toothbrush helps to get all of the dirt that is wedged into the tread in the sole, as the bristles can reach deeper into the tread than a washcloth could. Gently scrape out any build up that is in the soles. Rinse the soles with warm water. Allow them to air dry. You could also use cotton swabs to get the dirt out of the tread. Dip the cotton swabs in warm, soapy water and run them along the grooves until all of the dirt has been removed.

B. Clean the outside of the boot. 

Use baby wipes to rub down the outside of the boots that run along the fabric line. Baby wipes condition the boots along the fabric lines. If you do not have baby wipes, you can use a wash cloth and warm water to scrub the outside of the boots. Use a cleaning agent designed for your boots’ specific fabric. When cleaning leather, make sure to buy leather cleaning supplies that match the color of your leather. Make sure to follow the directions on the cleaner to apply it and scrub out stains. For leather boots, use a leather cleanser. These cleansers generally come in cream form. Most leather cleaners come with a sponge or an applicator which can be used to apply it to the boot. Make sure to purchase the cream made for your color of boot. Follow the directions on the tube and rub it into the leather.

Part 3 of 3: Making the Finishing Touches

A. Buff up your boots.
If there are noticeable stains that have not been removed by cleaning the boots, buff them out. If your boots are made of smooth leather and you have noticed black stains, dip a washcloth in water and then baking soda. Rub the spot with the stain gently. When the stain is gone, wipe the spot with a damp, clean cloth, and then let the boots dry. If you have suede boots that are looking a little matted, or the nap (the fuzzy part of suede) is lying flat against your boot, scrubb the nap with a clean, dry toothbrush. Doing this should make the nap stand up again. If it is really matted, so much so that brushing it doesn’t do much, hold the boot close to the steam from a kettle and then scrub it with a toothbrush. The steam untangled the matted nap, allowing you to scrub it straight and make it stand up again.

5

B. Dry the boots. 

Once the cleaning agent has been applied and any stains treated, let the boots air dry in warm air. Do not place the boots near high heat (such as a fire) as high heat could potentially melt any glue holding the boot together, or destroy the leather parts of your boots.

C. Erase the scuff marks.
Use a simple pencil eraser to remove scuff marks on the toe of the boots. Rub the eraser lightly over the marks until they disappear. Brush off any bits of eraser left over after scrubbing the boots.

Finished.
