I haven’t owned a pair of Keds since about 5th grade, but this new Taylor Swift-inspired design might finally convince me to get some. I still haven’t decided how I feel about her new single, but I’m a fan of these Sneaky Cat Keds. They’ll be available in October, just like the her new “1989” album,… READ MORE »

Taylor Swift was recently spotted shooting a video in downtown LA that involved a bunch of adorable costume changes and some enthusiastic trampoline jumping.

Ronan Gregory, the guy behind Ronan, Edun and Loomstate, just teamed up with Barney’s CO-OP to put out a line of eco-friendly Keds that feature rather adorable prints and lace-less construction. But as darling as the shoes themselves are, the promo video may be even cuter. Admittedly, we’re not entirely sure what a… READ MORE »

Don’t you hate it when you buy a new shirt or dress that you absolutely love, and then you go to work and someone else has the exact same thing on? If you don’t have any sewing skills, it’s pretty much a guarantee that someone else is going to own what you own — unless… READ MORE »

This week, I saw Rilo Kiley play — Jenny Lewis is the cutest. This girl’s hair reminds me of Jenny’s hair, though I hear reddish hair is hard to manage in the summer (if it’s not natural, it might get brassy). Oh well, at least you can wear some simple sneakers like hers — they… READ MORE »
