Loungefly Loves Hello Kitty: Vintage Print Patent Embossed Mini City Bag Review

My fave style and shape of bag from Loungefly is now the mini city bag. I previously shared how much I love the Loungefly Loves Hello Kitty: Houndstooth Embossed Mini City Bag… And as soon as I saw this, I was obviously in L-O-V-E <3

Hello Kitty Vintage Print Patent Embossed Mini City Bag is

Sophisticated meets cute in this eye-catching Hello Kitty city bag!

The patent PVC leather is embossed with Hello kitty print. I really like how the embossed pattern is used throughout the seasons… And the combination of the embossment paired with the printing is quite lovely!

Hello Kitty Denim Backpack By Loungefly

As soon as I saw the Hello Kitty Denim Backpack by Loungefly, I knew I was in love! Look at how adorbs this is! Can you blame me?

Hello Kitty Denim Backpack by Loungefly

By now, most Junkies are familiar with the Hello Kitty backpacks from Loungefly. We’ve seen the backpacks that feature the red sequins bow, the NERD theme and the mustache theme. But the Loungefly team has been busy! Have you seen all of the beautiful backpacks!? (photo below is not ALL btw).

Hello Kitty Backpacks by Loungefly

Seriously, there is a design for every Junkie!

I must say, the denim one is a personal fave of mine. I like the casual personality of denim — I can take this backpack anywhere. If I was in summer school, I would rock this everyday.

Hello Kitty Denim Backpack by Loungefly

As usual, the design details are spot-on! The ears, 3d bow, embroidery detail, denim on denim combination, the contrast thread color stitched throughout, the zipper, zipper pull, etc… Even the die cut hang tag… Love everything! Kawaii!

Added to My Kittilicious Collection: Hello Kitty Mini Leopard Embossed Bag by Loungefly

The Hello Kitty Mini Leopard Embossed Bag is a kittiliciously stylish fashion accessory for any Junkie-diva!

Hello Kitty Mini Leopard Embossed Bag by Loungefly

This shiny patent faux leather bag measures 9.5″ x 8″ x 5″ and is pretty purrr-fect for a night out with the girls! It comes with a dust bag… Oooh, fancy! n_~

Hello Kitty Mini Leopard Embossed Bag by Loungefly

The quality is awesome — I have many Loungefly bags in my collection and I’ve kept them in pretty good shape throughout the years. The zippers and hardware and trims are always sturdy.

Hello Kitty Mini Leopard Embossed Bag by Loungefly

I love the shape of this bag — sexy! The shiny patent faux leather material probably has a lot to do with the sexiness factor. Pretty clever how Hello Kitty is part of the leopard pattern, huh?

Hello Kitty Mini Leopard Embossed Bag by Loungefly

And you get even more of Kitty-chan from the embossed pattern featuring Kitty’s face and bow! I am also in love with the black/gold/brown colorway. It adds a bit of grown-up sophistication.

Another detail I am in love with is the black Kitty bow that hangs from the strap. As someone who loves all those small details, I really appreciate the shiny black bow — a little 3d with embroidery and gold printed (and debossed?) Hello Kitty lettering on the back.

Hello Kitty Mini Leopard Embossed Bag by Loungefly

The inside lining fabric is nice and thick — and there are two pockets on one side and a more secure zippered pocket on the other side. The interior also features the “Loungefly Loves Hello Kitty” plaque.

My Hello Kitty Christmas Wish List!

Did you know that there are less than two weeks until Christmas!? I have been so busy that I almost forgot to write Santa a letter!

I got out my best Hello Kitty stationery and writing utensils… And as you can see, Kitty-chan was helping me make sure I listed every cute kittilicious thing that I wanted from Mr. Claus!

My letter to Santa went a little something like this:

Dearest Santa,

I have been a very good girl this year. Please surprise me with the HUGE Hello Kitty plush from Sanrio underneath next to my tree. I promise to be a purrr-fect angel for the rest of my life!

Love,
Maria

P.S. I am baking you some special Hello Kitty cookies and will put them in a to-go container. Please share with Mrs. Claus, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen… and don’t forget Rudolph!

Did you write Santa a letter? What Hello Kitty things were on your list?

These are a few things that are on my Holiday wish list:

1. Hello Kitty 37″ Giant Plush: Red Overalls — I LOVE her! Kitty-chan is so HUGE (37 in/3 ft 1 in) and would make a fine addition to any Junkies‘ collection. Who wouldn’t want to cuddle with her!? She is a on the pricy side, retailing for $249… But if I were rich, I would gift her to my best kittilicious friends who love plush! ^__^

2. Hello Kitty Sofa — Kawaii, neh!? This is a very exclusive made-to-order sofa featuring the lovely Kitty that comes from Japan! I especially love this piece because it is kawaii furniture! I can totally see it in my living room — it would look so amazingly cute with some plush lounging on it. This is another costly item — ¥198,000 JPY, or about $2,370.41 — $___$

3. Little Twin Stars Trolley Bag — Yup, I am aware that this beautiful luggage is not a Hello Kitty design… But this is cuteness you cannot deny! This luggage looks like a trunk — so it would be cute as home decor as well as the main use of a travel bag. Also, Little Twin Stars are my loves too — I’ve been a fan since my youth! I started drooling over this when I saw Sanrio Japan’s Special Catalog Autumn/Winter 2012 vol. 44. This trolley bag costs ¥18,900 JPY, or about $226.27 — which is pretty competitive to other suitcases from Sanrio.

4. Hello Kitty Chia Pet — This is a kittitastic gift to give and to receive! I do believe I need this in my apartment… Very nostalgic too, isn’t it? For the 70’s + 80’s babies: do you remember having one of these? This is very affordably priced at $17.99 ($15.99 on Amazon).

5. Samanth Thavasa x Hello Kitty x Liberty Art Hand Bag. When I traveled to Japan during the summer, I saw this in person! Oh My Kittyness! It is absolutely gorgeous! This is definitely a luxury item (to me anyways) but every time I see an image online, I just *sigh* because it’s beautiful! I see an eBayer selling this beauty for $689.98! The retail price in Japan was probably around $350 or so? I just knew I made the conversion on my iPhone and knew it was too much at the moment! $_____$ Check out more Samantha Thavasa x Hello Kitty bags + accessories.

6. Hello Kitty Honey Momo Plush — Kitty-chan as a superhero with a honey momo theme… Momo, as you can probably guess from the image, means peach in Japanese. She is dressed in a pink suit and has “sexy” eyelashes, and *bonus* her ears are made of peaches! This is so silly and cute and adorable… Yes, very Japanese! This cost ¥2,100 JPY, or about $25.14

7. Hello Kitty Ichigoman Plush — Kitty-chain is dressed as the ultimate superhero! Her ears are made of  ichigo, which translates to strawberry in Japanese. Kawaii, neh? This plush also retails for ¥2,100 JPY, or about $25.14.

I wonder if the Junkies approve of my wish list… Think I left anything off?

And after hearing/reading/seeing the tragic news for a good part of the day — I wish for peace on Earth. <3

Sephora’s Hello Kitty Wild Thing Collection

The Hello Kitty Wild Thing Collection has been out for over a month now… And yes, I got my hands on some of the products (thanks to the good peeps over at Sephora)! Since it is the Holiday season, I thought I would share some images and offer some last minute shopping ideas (if you are a procrastinator like me)… Or maybe some gifts for yourself? n_~

Wild Thing bag is available for $29 — a cute gift for any of the Junkies or any girl who likes makeup!

The bag is a good size and definitely a fun piece for your collection or to carry with you and use on a daily basis.

Kawaii Kitty charm…

Well-made zipper…

Kitty-chan’s puffy bow!

The inside of the bag had a nice detail featuring an embossed “Hello Kitty” label…

And as a little extra something — die cut Hello Kitty head hang tag! ^_^

The Wild Thing Comb is available for $12 — another cute gift to surprise a loved one with! This product is easy on the wallet as well as a cute collector’s piece.

The over-sized wide tooth comb works well on my hair — which is a curly afro sometimes. n__n If it can get through my hair, it should be able to get through anyone’s hair! o___O

Kitty-chan’s bow is 3d!

Back detail…

Wild Thing Roller Girl is available for $22 — another collectible piece because of how blinged out the bottle is! The packaging is also very chic with the zebra pattern and gold print.

The rollerball is awesome because it’s great to travel with and I really like the scent — it is playful, wild and fun!

Love Kitty-chan’s head!

Wild Thing Makeup Palette is available for $49 $34 ($200 value) — this is probably the best deal!

Included in this makeup palette are: metallic, animal-print palette with 12 eye shadows, complementary eyeliner, and matching mirror — inside a collectible Hello Kitty tin case! The large tin case is super kawaii — the main reason I like this set!

You can never go wrong with a Hello Kitty compact mirror… The Hello Kitty compact mirror usually retails $19…

Eyeliner… Which if bought individually, costs $16… So let me do the math real quick — $19 (compact mirror) + $16 (eyeliner) = $35 which costs MORE than $34 — the price for this makeup palette! That’s a kittitastic deal, ain’t it?

Look at the variety of colors… Pretty for the Holidays… I believe I will wear these colors year-round too…

The tin case! @___@ Kawaii, neh!?

Wild Thing Brush Set is available for $49 $29 — another great deal because it is on sale! To me, this is super collectible — I pretty much like any item that is in the shape of Kitty — especially figures of her! My IG friend amandasevenfold even thinks so — look at her Sephora Hello Kitty brush sets!! =^_^=

I gifted this brush set to my Momma — since it’s her Birthday today!

Cuteness, right?

And oh yeah, the brushes! (although I like this product strictly because of the big Kitty figure)… It is nice that the makeup brushes come inside the container.

Hope these pix helped in finding some kawaii Kitty things for your loved one this Holiday season… Or maybe convince you to add some in your kittilicious collection.
