Girls Will Be Girls . . . Hello Kitty x Forever 21!

Last week I made a trip to the new(ish) Forever 21 store in the Trafford Centre and spent a good half an hour gawping at the Hello Kitty Forever line. I usually pass over the usual tees and nightwear featuring our beloved feline friend but this new F21 stuff has a grown up thing going on. Silky blouses in neutrals and contrasting brights with repeating patterns, cute tailored shorts, preppy knits with bold designs and accessories galore such as Le Sportsac-esque bags and knitted winter wear. I got a cute dip hem blouse in a chic nude colour with a yellow HK face pattern for about £17, and the knitted beanie and legwarmers you can spy in this post :)

Outfit: Hat - F21, Tshirt - George at Asda, Skirt - Oasis, Tights - Oasis, Legwarmers - F21, Boots - My Glamour Heels, Bag - BooHoo, Jacket - TK Maxx, Necklace - Maggie Angus.




The hat was about £9 I think and has ears and a big HK bow. Her face is there, but it's hidden in a few patterned patches, cute though and not too childish. The legwarmers are super soft and so nice, they seem way more expensive than the £8 I paid so hurrah! I literally could've dropped a hundred in there (there was a onesie guys - A ONESIE!) but I restrained by telling myself that when you're 21 (AHEM) Hello Kitty should be an accent rather than a whole look.

Have you seen the Hello Kitty Forever range? I know I still love that little kitteh, but as I get older I find I wrestle with what is appropriate attire for my age and what could just be embarrassing?!

J - Never can say goodbye.

  1. I'd heard about this collection but wasn't sure if it was just in the US so glad to hear it's over here too! I'll have to brave Forever 21 in a couple of weeks (it's always so busy!) I love the kitty legwarmers!

    1. It had somehow completely escaped my radar so when I walked in I was like :O

      I was lucky, I hit the store at about 4pm and it was empty and fully stocked so I could've easily spent a fortune. Luckily, I don't have said fortune to spend!

  2. A ONESIE?! I'm with you on the loving HK but unsure what's appropriate, but I'd love to lay around the house looking like our purry pal. Do they have stationery I wonder..?
