Cool Kid Taylor Swift Makes Keds, Cardigans, And Cats Trendy

What used to be the realm of 75 year old spinsters is now the domain of a 24 year old pop superstar and teenagers and twenty-somethings everywhere.Cynthia:  That’s right, Taylor Swift has helped propel the crazy cat lady penchant for cardigans and Keds into downright covetable fashion.

Marcy:  That’s crazy.

Cynthia:  But what is even more crazy is that Keds were trendy in the late 1980’s when I was a teen. They went well with our leg warmers, acid wash ankle jeans, oversize blouses and side ponytails. Oh and they had to be sparkling white. My friends and I all wore Keds.

And…so did my Gram.  And… she had been wearing them since the 1950’s.

 

My Gram, 1942, probably not wearing Keds here
but maybe

Cynthia:  Some fashion just never dies.

Marcy:  Either that or you humans have no imagination.

Cynthia:  Or simply a love of nostalgia.

Anyways, Taylor Swift has designed the ultimate Keds shoe. A cat Keds shoe.

 

Sneaky Cat Keds by Taylor Swift

Cynthia:  It’s called Sneaky Cat.  Get it Marcy… sneaky for sneakers… clever, hunh? Ha ha ha.

Marcy (condescendingly):  Oh you people and your wordplay. You all just crack me up.

Cynthia: I have to say… her Sneaky Cat sneaker is pretty cute. Subtle in fact. However, it’s $55 which is about $40 more than I would pay for a pair of Keds tennis shoes.

I mean, really. They’re Keds!

Marcy:  I bet in your day, bread was 10 cents a loaf and you had to walk 2 miles uphill in the snow to get to school.

Cynthia:  And, we used a card catalog since the internet wasn’t invented yet.

Marcy:  Horrors. It’s a miracle you survived.
