Cynthia: That’s right, Taylor Swift has helped propel the crazy cat lady penchant for cardigans and Keds into downright covetable fashion.
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.
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.

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.

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.
