The Hello Kitty Chambray Crossbody bag + long wallet are currently the sweetest bag + wallet set in my collection. Sweet because both pieces have polka dots + are adorned with Kitty-chan and her signature bow + the design is just overall cuteness!
I love the design combo of this set — the quilted small white polka dotted denim colored fabric featuring white outlined Hello Kitty pattern and the brown contrast piping details… As well as the antique gold-ish trims… And of course all of the small details Loungefly design team thinks of, like the Loungefly Loves Hello Kitty debossed applique.
This Crossbody style is lovely because I prefer to wear my bags/purses across my body — feels more secure that way… And it is the way I wore my purses when I was a youngster! It is also a delightful shape that I think looks cute on everybody. The adjustable shoulder straps make it perfect for you to wear this with shorter straps on one shoulder or longer straps across your body — versatile, no?
When I saw this bag in real life — I was surprised by the size. It was a bit larger than I expected. The measurements are 12″ H x 10″ W x 3″ D. It’s a pretty good size — enough space to store my wallet, iPhone, digital camera, mirror, lip gloss and some other small things… Nice and roomy.
The material is nice — the faux leather has a soft feel but it is sturdy at the same time. The chambray is so down to earth too… Makes me feel comfy and happy! ^___^
The inside of the bag features a zippered pocket and two open compartments to store small things — for those Junkies who are super organized.
I posted a pic on IG earlier last week:
Size reference because it is difficult to tell how large the crossbody will be strictly off the measurements alone… Very decent size!
Kitty-chan’s iconic bow — one of my fave things about this handbag! I also love that her bow is made from the purely polka dotted pattern!
I like how only the flap of the crossbody has the polka dotted Hello Kitty pattern — it gives a certain subtlety to the design that makes it interesting and balanced (or maybe I am reading too much into it)… n_~
Here is the crossbody with closed and open flap… Snap closure for no-hassle opening + closing of the bag. The inside lining is solid without any artwork. I like this — looks so fresh and so clean!

Look how cute it is to have the Hello Kitty Chambray set! @___@
Inside zippered pocket and Loungefly debossed applique… Also, notice how straight the applique + stitching details are… Impressive?
Back detail of the crossbody…
More stitching detail… And the antique gold-ish colored trim… Pretty sturdy. n_n
The matching Hello Kitty Chambray with Bow long wallet is just as cute as the Crossbody. These two go great together and they stand kawaii independently as well! The long wallet features the same adorable pattern and 3d puffy bow and applique and all that other good stuff!

The inside of the long wallet has a pop of red. You can store your loose change in the zippered pocket and there are many compartments to organize your id, cards, business cards, etc… The stitching detail is pretty good — nice finish.
The long wallet measures 4″H x 8″W x 1″D.
Love that 3d puffy bow detail! ^_^
Looks so cute alone!
Looks super cute together!
Bottom line… This has the official Hello Kitty Junkie recommendation. This is pretty much purrr-fect as a present for the upcoming Holidays or Birthday (for a good friend or girlfriend) and even for yourself! I could think of so many friends who would love this bag + wallet from teen to Mommy to Granny… And if you’re thinking about gifting somebody special, the long wallet would be lovely, or the crossbody, or if you really love them — both! Your kittilicious loved one would definitely be in chambray bliss! =^_^=
