  • When’s the last time you cleaned your leather gloves? If you’re anything like me, it’s been a while. (Which, if you think about it, is pretty gross.) Stop avoiding it: Cleaning your leather gloves is easier than you think. De-germ them with saddle soap, which you can get for $6 right here. [PopSugar]
  • Speaking of cleaning leather, why don’t you learn how to clean the salt off your boots, too? [Shoppist]
  • Taylor Swift’s first foray into fashion – a clothing line featuring crop tops, body-con dresses, sweatshirts and tees emblazoned with the pop star’s name – made its debut at Hong Kong Fashion Week. It’s all very underwhelming. [WWD]

  • Love her or hate her, Gwyneth Paltrow has some seriously enviable skin. And now GOOP’s founder has launched a skin care line, no doubt made from the macrobiotic tears of baby angels. [Vogue]
