I was graciously invited to the Keds Spring 2012 footwear and apparel preview party at The Blue Plate in San Francisco last week. This was my first glimpse at their new collection hitting stores very soon. First thoughts, fresh and fun! I have to admit I haven’t bought Keds since I was a young girl. I do remember, however, that I lived in their shoes. They were the perfect every day shoe and still are. It was nice to see a new fun side of Keds with their Spring 2012 footwear containing a variety of fun upbeat patterns and colors, from checkers to stripes to glimmers.
The Blue Plate restaurant, where the party was held, was a quaint cute place near Bernal Heights. Their appetizers were amazing, their beet or d’oeuvre was my favorite! Along with the delicious food was a watercolor artist painting pictures of each guest wearing their choice of Spring 2012 apparel. All in all, the event was a success. I was able to meet an awesome group of Keds brand executives, dine on delicious appetizers, while “oo-ing” and “awe-ing” over their new collection. Take a look at the fun pictures I shot at the event below! Enjoy!
