Style for Style: Shoe Skid Marks

I admit I have a few tricks up my blouson sleeve when it comes to fashion dilemmas. There is enough to go around so I hope you find my new Style for Style everyday fashion tips helpful! Let's begin with shoe skid marks. You know the ones. You have a pair of light colored leather, patent leather, or fabric shoes and these black marks appear usually around the sides and heel. I am prone to these after a wild fun night on the town when flitting about in taxis with sloshed giddy girlfriends.

These Marc Jacobs Minnie Mouse green pumps are a longtime favorite of mine but they are so prone to this problem.

To see my fix involving a tool you probably already have,

You guessed it - the magic eraser. Or any eraser for that matter. I believe it was a shopgirl who passed on this tip to me. It works most of the time, but I think it depends on the material and how long the skid marks have been there. Style for style baby!
