    I bought those same Sperry sneakers this year and love them. Sprayed them With Scotch-guard in hopes of keeping them white. They are getting a little dusty looking so I’m wiping with a damp towel. Any tips on cleaning these canvas sneakers?

    • Have you thrown them into the wash? I will do that from time to time and let them dry in the sun.

        • just take the laces out before washing the sneakers.

    Do you have any idea who might sell the Ralph Lauren Denim skirt other than the RL website? At some point RL decided to stop shipping to Canada and I need a company that will ship this skirt to me in Canada….

    • Macy’s also carries this skirt. Not certain if they ship to Canada.
