Forever 21 x Hello Kitty Collection

As a lifelong fan of cute things, I was excited when Forever 21 announced their collab with Hello Kitty. Initially looking through the items, my reaction was disappointment at everything gawdy, but after some choosing and closer looks, there are a few pieces that can apply to a more mature wardrobe (what I'm striving for nowadays). You can shop the collection here. If you want anything, shop fast because they're disappearing left and right.

Lookbook
(where is this white sweater ... so cute)
My picks:

Leatherette Trim Raincoat $29.80
My favourite and most practical one of the items in their collection: a clear raincoat. I'm crazy about clear umbrellas and a clear raincoat is so practical for my biking and rainy St. Louis weather needs. However, if it only had a hood ... I can always DIY one on. The price is a little steep, still chewing this over. I'm afraid that it will just start to crack and break because of flimsy cheap plastic.
Pointelle Hello Kitty Cardigan $24.80
Bright pink, all right. But look it has little patterns of Hello Kitty on it! Super cute and nice to brighten up a cold winter day at the library. Ideally paired with a chambray shirt, bow tie, and hipster glasses. The print top the model has on is cute too.
High-Low Hello Kitty Dress $22.80
Hi-lo trend! If it were chiffon and more classy, I'd get it but it's still cool and makes Hello Kitty more grown up and fashionable.

HK Boyfriend Cardigan $24.80
Collegiate-ish, red
Intergalactic Hello Kitty Tee $17.80
Can't complain, nice big print
 Hello Kitty Film Strip Tote $16.80
My top accessory pick. It's so adorbs! I almost never use totes though. They hurt the shoulders when I carry my 10-lb + load every day to class. Pricey for a bag.
 Hello Kitty Trio Socks $8.80
I have a soft spot for socks, if you didn't already know.
Going to snoop these out in store to make sure the quality and fit is good before I commit. Meanwhile, heading back to San Diego at 6 AM tomorrow! I'm super pumped to be home with my family and eat amazing food and not have to deal with senior year havoc for a few days. Finished a "clustermuck" of Immunology today (3 essays, an exam, homework) and I'm ready to take off : )

Readers - will you pick up anything from the Forever 21 x Hello Kitty 2011 Collection?

OMG I'm so getting the socks if i find them. the raincoat reminds me alot of burberry's fashion show (fall 2011? spring 2012? I forget), so I think it's a good dupe to their leatherette/clear plastic rain cape.

interesting how forever21 used the high low trend for a hello kitty shirt dress....reminds me of alexander wang with a punch of cuteness!

good luck with school! i'm hoping to post soon though ill never get to be on the same level as your posting cycle

I really like the socks the most! A lot of Hello Kitty clothes are so cute! I wouldn't want to wear them because they're too precious! :p
