When I was little, there was no bigger treat than going to one of three stores: Disney, Claire’s, or Sanrio. Let’s be honest: minus Claire’s (which will always have a special place in my heart), I still can’t resist either of the others. When I went to Tokyo, I bought all of the Sanrio, Tokyo Disneyland, and also Rilakkuma goodies I could get my hands on. Little Twin Stars slippers, Hello Kitty fake eyelash holders (!! this one is very similar), novelty mirrors, plush dolls, a macaron Mickey pillow, clothing. I ended up buying an extra suitcase to bring it all home. I was in heaven.

This Furla x Hello Kitty Metropolis Mini Crossbody falls on the higher end of the spectrum; I think of it as my “grown up” Sanrio bag. A more refined version of the satin Pandapple tote I carried in college. Does anyone remember Pandapple? It was one of their least popular characters, whom I actually loved. It all started with Unico (gut-wrenching but oh so precious), and then Hello Kitty, My Melody and Little Twin Stars. In middle school I was all about Keroppi and Monkichi (especially since Tessa was a baby and we called her Monchichi), in high school I shifted back to Hello Kitty, My Melody and Little Twin Stars Kiki and Lala. And then Pandapple came along and I was so happy to have a cute lil panda, but no one else agreed. And of course, Gudetama and Aggretsuko are fantastic additions. Let’s be real: I just love them all.

There is really point to this other than to say: I love Sanrio and hooray for my Hello Kitty purse. Also, do you have a favorite character? Did you also watch Unico and as a result, lose all childish innocence and realize that the world is cruel and even tiny unicorns are lonely? Seriously, I was just thinking about how that probably wasn’t supposed to be a kids’ movie…so messed up.

p.s. If you’re a Sanrio lover like me, the official Sanrio store on Amazon has tons of goodies and Etsy has sellers that do surprise grab bags (and you know I love a grab bag).

    I just watched the episode on Sanrio in Netflix’s series about Toys (The Toys that Made Us, I think?) and it seems like you’d love it! I did the same thing when I went to Japan and ran out of room in my suitcase. I need to go back!

    Have you seen the Hello Kitty episode of The Toys That Made Us on Netflix? It was really interesting to learn how Sanrio started and how Hello Kitty became popular.

      No, but a couple of people recommended it! So now I definitely have to watch. I did go to the hello kitty museum, though!

    There are a lot of bloggers who love unicorns, so I hope that whenever tiny unicorns feel lonely they manage to find the bloggers who love them.
    Your hair and lipstick both look very pretty and perfect, and you look beautiful rocking that pretty red striped faux wrap dress!!!

    • Keiko Lynn says:

      haha that’s a great way to think of it! Well, I sure love Unico and I guess that means he’s not alone:)

      And thank you!

    How adorable is this bag! One reason besides the great price that I like Furla so much is that they always come out with very original details and designs to add onto their classic bag. I especially like the fact that with so many of their bags you can change out the top flap so you end up getting multiple bags in one! This outfit corresponds perfect with each item of apparel! You are such a great stylist. Hope you have some fun weekend plans!

      I think that’s the best idea! Multiple bags without the bulk!
