how's this for a blast from the past? i want KEDS!

so, perhaps i didn't get the memo, but when did keds start putting out really, really cute shoes??? i mean, i've seen mischa barton in their ads, and raised an eyebrow or two at that (especially since the shoes were still fugly, even if they were on mischa barton). but now, all of a sudden, they have nanette lepore designing for them, and some rock art poster chick i've never heard of, and before i knew what had happened, i have two pairs of keds in my shopping cart!

it's madness....i don't think i've owned a pair of keds since the 6th grade, when i was pairing them with two pairs of socks (in different colors, scrunched down, natch - i was so hot). but really, when you think about it, darling shoes that make you smile for $40 (or $60 for the nanette lepore versions)? you could do a lot worse!

my picks: the pandas (above), the blue owls (right), and the black-and-white script print versions by nanette. if they'd come out six months ago, i'd be head over heels for the leopard print, but the animal prints just aren't singing to me these days...
