Unlike most kids I grew up with, I never collected Hello Kitty products when I was a young. Although I'm not a big fan, I can say I still do have the utmost admiration for the most popular bobtail cat as a children's icon around the world.
I must say, Hello Kitty's kawaii goodness and charm has started to work on me; slowly luring me into this intense Kitty craze of kids in all ages. Seeing a myriad of HK items, I couldn't help but be a little nostalgic about buying a few HK stationeries during my grade school days because back then, it was such a big hit so girls could write to their friends and of course crushes.
Hello Kitty's image transcended its initial market - from children, to teens and now adults. "Cute" has become a personal style and/or look of choice among most people and this is why this puss in red bow managed to appeal even to grown ups.
Since Christmas only comes once a year, I wanted to reminisce my childhood by dressing up a little juvenile than I usually do with this Lanvin-inspired thrifted tulle dress and my dandy Vans Hello Kitty Edition sneakers. Plus my nails match the yuletide season really well courtesy of course of Nail It!
Meow-ry Chritmas everyone! Have a good one! This Christmas, I encourage everyone to read my past two holiday-related entries for the past two years for a little more depth and substance.
