Hello Kitty turns 35, changes name to Hey Cougar!
I kid. I kid.
But it's true, Hello Kitty the bright-eyed feline from Japan, is 35 this year and some folks are really getting into the festivities.
Peep Paris Hilton below at the Three Apples Exhibition going on now in L.A. Three Apples (supposedly the amount that Hello Kitty weighs) goes on for several weeks and celebrates all things Hello Kitty.
I had a brief flirt with Hello Kitty a few years back. I mean who wasn't feeling Kimora Lee Simmons take on the anime brand.
But beyond that, I just tend to trust the Japanese when it comes to matters of style.
And then there is this part of me that clings to kiddy-imagery. For a while my favorite outfit consisted of a quirky graphic T-shirt, a pair of premium denim jeans and some very grown-up heels.
These days I've retired most of my Hello Kitty stuff. But I was curious as to what was on the market for a girl who may be all grown up yet desires a touch of little-girl delight in her wardrobe every now and then.
Hello Kitty's got her head on straight. Great tote bag for lunch or the gym @ Karmaloop.com
USB Drive @ Sanrio. I never leave home without mine!
If you're going to do HK jewelry, go for ultra-cute. Kitty does Russia @ L'Accro.
