  • How to take care of your boots How to take care of your boots

    Ahhh snowy sidewalks, slush, calcium marks on your boots... the many joys of winter! But seriously, to get back to calcium, is there anything worse than seeing your beautiful winter boots ruined by salt? Because, believe me, salt can actually ruin a pair of boots ...

    So before you get there, I recommend you read these tips carefully so that your boots do not end up looking like mine !!

    The first thing to know and to remember is to always clean the boot before applying any product. When I say clean, I mean using a clean wet cloth and a little bit of gentle soap, on the entire boot including the sole (avoid the fur if there is some). This step is even more important with leather boots, because, for example, if you apply a wax or a cream on a dirty boot, the leather will absorb the dirt and that is really not what we want! !

    Leather boots

    As you can tell from the picture of my ruined boots, the maintenance of leather is very important. The two products that I consider essential would be a waterproofing spray and a cream. A colorless waterproofing spray is really interesting to have since you can use it on all colors of leather, for your shoes as well as your bags or other accessories. I personally apply it as necessary; if I know the temperature of the next day requires it, I apply a good coat the evening before so they have time to dry before wearing them out. As for the cream, I apply a thin layer every two weeks, with a clean cloth making circular movements. The cream will moisturize and soften your leather and keep it from cracking like mine !!

    Rubber boots

    Maintaining your rubber boots is a bit simpler, but still essential. I recommend cleaning the boot with a wet and soapy clean cloth on a regular basis, say once a week. This prevents calcium from accumulating and gnawing the rubber. You can also use a waterproofing spray cause often (not always, so check well!!), leather waterproofing sprays can be used on other surfaces such as fabric and rubber.

    Fur

    If your boots have a fur trim, be careful when spraying them. I recommend trying to hide it with a plastic bag or a towel. If you find that the fur is missing some wow or if it's dirty, you can take a clean cloth soaked in warm water and gently slip over the fur to clean it. You can also brush it gently with a comb to remove the knots.

    **TIPSSS**

    If calcium has left a ring on your boots, don't panic! It's not too late!! Whether your boots are leather or rubber, take a clean cloth and pour a tiny bit of white vinegar. Gently rub the stained area and rinse well with warm water (especially the leather !!). Warning: can leave you with a strong desire to eat vinegar chips!!

     

    So this is it! Keeping your feet warm in the winter is super important, the maintenance of your boots is therefore not negligible. Especially if you don't want to buy new ones every year !!

    Buying a new winter coat - knowing your needs

    There comes a moment in life where you can't escape the obvious ... you need a new winter coat! This may be a pleasure for some, but can be a real nightmare for the majority. It is an important purchase, financially speaking, and also because your winter comfort depends on it. What's worse than ending up with an expensive coat, but which you freeze in all winter? No thank you! I blogged last year about 3 tips for enjoying winter, this year I decided to go into more detail and create a guide of how to make an informed decision that you won't regret!

    The first step is to evaluate what you need the jacket for. Obviously if you need a coat for work or for skiing, the choice is not the same! Over the years, you can build your wardrobe with a different coat for each need, a chic one for work, a sporty one for winter activities and a super warm one for every day use. But hey, let's be realistic, it's not everyone who can afford to have 3 or 4 different coats. If you choose wisely there exist coats that can meet a multitude of needs, such as the Point Zero 8618535 that has a removable lining so you can wear it in warmer weather too. You can also go for a neutral and solid color (black, grey, white or navy) and play with your accessories to create looks adapted to your needs. Like here, with the Soïa & Kyo Salma-f6 coat, I had fun creating a more chic look for work and a more casual look for the weekend. As I have already said ... everything is a matter of accessorizing!

     Chic bag (left): Rudsak - Patna // Casual bag (right): Matt&Nat - Gil

    Ok, when I say "adapted to your silhouette" I don't just mean in an aesthetic way. It is important that your coat is suitable for your body shape because otherwise you could A: be uncomfortable all winter, and B: cut air circulation and freeze all winter. Understand how important this is? If you need help check out a jacket for every silhouette. I invite you to read it for more details, but basically:

    Small waist: highlight it with a belt. It will also help stop the air coming in from underneath.

    Rudsak jacket - Gloria

    Strong hips or thighs: go for upper body details like pockets on the chest or an imposing fur collar. A longer coat (mid-thigh or longer) will also benefit your figure and keep you warmer.

     

    Rudsak jacket - Tadotsu

    Wide shoulders: The opposite of the previous one. Go for less details at the top and more at the bottom, to balance your body out. A coat with big lower pockets is a great option, especially if it has a more discreet fur collar.

     Rud by Rudsak jacket - Trona

    Oh yes! Whether you like it or not, you need to take care of a winter coat! First thing, when winter has come to an end, store it in a cover, ideally not too compacted so that the down does not flatten. It is also recommended to dry clean it every year, when it comes out of the closet (make sure you shop for a good cleaner, especially if the coat has fur or leather !!). If you are lazy and do not want to spend time on maintenance, I recommend you go for coat like the Soïa & Kyo - Katlin (see photo below) simply because it has no fur and no leather. So the only maintenance is to put it away and dry clean it every year. Plus, it's super warm!! (win-win)

     

    Hopefully I've helped you out! And don't forget that if you are unsure, ALL our team, whether it's in store or online, are waiting and more than happy to help you find the coat of your dreams ;)

  • Laundry : How to take care of your clothes (to make them last longer) Laundry : How to take care of your clothes (to make them last longer)

    0 comments / Posted on by Dom Girard

    We'd all love clothes that last forever and whose colors are still as bright as day one. Ahhh it would be so wonderful, but let's be realistic: the life of our clothing is far from being eternal. Whether it's a manufacturing problem or a simple tomato sauce accident (oops), the factor that has the greatest influence on the life of a garment is how you take care of it, more precisely, how you wash it. Keeping in mind that it is best to wash clothes of similar colors together, I'm sharing with you 3 tips for washing white and black!

     

    Black

    We've all had a black garment that has turned gray too quickly. My clothes being almost all black, through trial and error I have some tips to prevent fading while keeping the same detergent for every color.

    1. With black clothes, it's super important to avoid hot water. Cold water is your best ally to combat fading! If you put your clothes in the dryer, it's important not to leave them there longer than necessary because, as with hot water, heat is damaging in the long term. The best way to dry them is to let them dry in the open air! Yes with a could old-fashioned clothesline.

    2. Washing your clothes inside out is also very effective in slowing fading!

     

    1. The first time you put a black piece of clothes (or any dark color) in the washer, add a cup of white vinegar (or white wine vinegar) in addition to your detergent. The vinegar will help set the color in place.

     

    White

    We've all experienced the frustration of seeing our favorite white sweater turn gray or yellow after a few washes. Before throwing it in the trash, or for your next white shopping spree, you'll want to try these three things!

    1. Use a washing powder. Detergents in powder or capsules contain bleaching agents that will help keep your clothes as white as possible! Another plus, they emit less surfactants (not good stuff) and therefore are a little better for the environment. In addition, they are easier to dose!

    2. Unlike black clothes, whites require hot water to prevent yellowing or becoming greyish.

    3. Add ¼ to ½ cup of baking soda  to your laundry. Baking soda will effectively enhance the effect of the detergent (and its cheap).

     

    Once your have these things in mind, remember that before doing anything, you should always look at the ticket on the garment because it's the best guide to maintain your garment. If the label suggests dry clean only ... there's a reason !! I'm the first to say "Bahhh, it can't be that bad if I put it on the gentle cycle, just once ..." Well yes, it can be serious! Even at delicate, your clothing could be weakened and will have a shortened lifespan.


    So there you go! if you follow these simple instructions, your clothes should stay brighter and last longer!

    HELP your hair

    In one of my recent blog posts, I talked bout my love for statement necklaces and how they add punch to any outfit. There was a time when my punch was a little higher than my neck... in fact it was directly on my head. Yes, I admit it, I was a fan of crazy color dyeing, all the way from pink to electric blue, through to orange-crush and bright purple.

    In my small town, I used to be known as the girl with the colorful hair, and yes I thought it was rather hilarious. If I thought it was funny at the time, I admit that three years later, I'm still paying the price! Let's say that bleaching your hair every two weeks is not the best thing for beautiful and healthy hair! Long story short, for over a year I have tried lots of stuff to bring my hair back to life.. let me share my top 3 products with you.

    Phyto – Phytokératine extreme

       

     

    The first product that I used and that I was impressed with from the first shampoo is Phytokératine extreme exceptional shampoo  from the Phyto brand. This is a range that is quite expensive (about thirty dollars per 100 g), but as it was offered to me for Christmas... I was very happy to try it. From the first shampoo, I only used the Phyto shampoo combined with a conditioner that I already owned. The result was instant: silky hair, extremely soft and without my traditional "crazy flyaways".  I give it A + for the instant result, for the fact that there is no paraben nor silicone and that it smells nice (can't be overlooked !!). Even so, I no longer use it. Why? I admit that the price made me hesitate, but it's mostly because I noticed that when I used another shampoo (even just once!) my hair lost all it's brilliance and flexibility and went back to being as dry as it was before I started using this product. I felt like my dry hair problem was hidden rather than resolved.

     

    Coconut Oil

          

     

    We hear of coconut oil everywhere! While it has many benefits on the culinary level, it also has many cosmetic properties! The one that interests us today: the hair mask! Coconut oil is solid when cold and completely liquid when warm. I find it easier to apply when it is thick, so in the summer I suggest you keep it in the refrigerator. The application is simple: you take a handful of oil in your hand, rub it between your palms to warm it up a bit and you apply it to your entire length, on wet or dry hair (I've always applied it on dry hair, but both are possible). I advise you to avoid going too close to the root as you may end up with a greasy scalp and that's not what you want! There's a limit to hydration!! Once all your hair is covered (paying particular attention to the tips), pull your hair up so as not to grease your clothes and keep the mask on for at least thirty minutes. Be careful: the oil will drip! This is not the time to wear your favorite sweater! Rinse your hair with warm water and shampoo as usual! Note: you must be careful to choose a 100% natural coconut oil; if it has been modified, the results may not be as effective. You will find it in the bio section of your grocery or health food store. You can repeat the exercise every two weeks for best results. You can also cover your head with a towel and keep the mask on for the night! 

    Lush Trip – shampoo, conditioner and mask

     

      

    The last formula is the one I currently use and it is composed of Lush products. I have been a consumer of Lush's fresh masks and bath bombs for some time, but I have only explored their range of hair products recently ... and I regret not having tried it before! They offer several formulas/combos, depending on your needs. My sos hair-dry formula consists of the shampoo Jersey Bounce and the conditioner Retread. Together, they contain a ton of key ingredients for repair / maintenance of hair! Some examples: Sea salt, eggs, honey, agar gel, olive oil, jojoba oil and soooo many others! In addition to the amazing smell (the shampoo is a happy blend of lemon and bergamot oil and the conditioner is a mix of melon and violets), they make considerably softer hair, eliminate frizz (or crazy hair) and nourish the hair for long-term results! And THAT is what we want! For extra hydration, I use the mask Fluff-ease with jasmine and henna once a week that I apply to dry hair and leave for twenty minutes before washing as usual - using my Lush duo. I also use the spray Sunny Day before brushing or during the day to remove stubborn frizz. Every time I use this spray, I get comments ALL day long as to how good my hair smells! It's an amazing product!! I must say, I'm pretty addicted to their products... the shampoo-conditioner duo is enough to see results quickly and for the long term! Prices are around $ 20 for 225g or 290g.

     

    So there you go, I hope it will make you want to take care of your hair! Of course, no product is a miracle worker! It's important to cut your split ends regularly to keep your hair strong and healthy! The use of the dryer and iron (flat or curling) is also very damaging to the hair so remember to apply a cream or moisturizing spray after each use! Let me know, what are your favorite products?

  • How to survive the end of winter.... and make the most of spring! How to survive the end of winter.... and make the most of spring!

    0 comments / Posted on by Dom Girard

    The days are getting longer, the mercury is rising and we can finally start seeing grass... Spring is on its way but…. it never seems to arrive as quickly as we’d like! We’d love to put away our winter coat for good and not have to bundle up to our ears every time we go out. Here are 3 tips to ease into spring, with style and without getting sick!

     


    Add some color

    Whether it’s a hat, a scarf or a mid-season coat, adding color to your outfit will help you get out of the monotony of winter. Dare the bright red with a coat like Maely from Soïa & Kyo, worn with an oversized scarf like the Foxtrap by Rudsak and voila! An ideal transition look; cheerful and warm!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     





    Choose a leather boot

     

    Along with our big coat, we are also very eager to say goodbye to our winter boots! Large rubber soles, heavy feet and calcium stain... no more please !! The sidewalks are finally clean, add a spring to your step with a light leather boot the Cabot by Rudsak! They will complete any outfit with style and comfort!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    No more long coats!

     

     

     

    I can’t say it enough, a coat that covers the thighs when it's 30 degrees below zero is  wonderful. But when the temperature hovers around 0 ... you want to feel free! A coat like the Mika from Sicily Clothing or the 8518524 ​​from Point Zero will help you out with that. A bit of down to keep you warm, but with a lightness that will make you dream of summer!

     

     

     

     

     

    The time to get our sandals out is not quite here, but extra cold days are on the out (fingers-crossed). Follow these three tips in your daily routine for an efficient transition, a killer look and most importantly ... without getting sick!

We’d love to put away our winter coat for good and not have to bundle up to our ears every time we go out. Here are 3 tips to ease into spring, with style and without getting sick!

     


    Add some color

    Whether it’s a hat, a scarf or a mid-season coat, adding color to your outfit will help you get out of the monotony of winter. Dare the bright red with a coat like Maely from Soïa & Kyo, worn with an oversized scarf like the Foxtrap by Rudsak and voila! An ideal transition look; cheerful and warm!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     





    Choose a leather boot

     

    Along with our big coat, we are also very eager to say goodbye to our winter boots! Large rubber soles, heavy feet and calcium stain... no more please !! The sidewalks are finally clean, add a spring to your step with a light leather boot the Cabot by Rudsak! They will complete any outfit with style and comfort!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    No more long coats!

     

     

     

    I can’t say it enough, a coat that covers the thighs when it's 30 degrees below zero is  wonderful. But when the temperature hovers around 0 ... you want to feel free! A coat like the Mika from Sicily Clothing or the 8518524 ​​from Point Zero will help you out with that. A bit of down to keep you warm, but with a lightness that will make you dream of summer!
