Hello Kitty loves Victoria Courture.

A lot of people think that Hello Kitty is only for little girls or maybe teens. Now we working big girls can enjoy Hello Kitty outfit too. Thanks to Victoria Couture’s love for Hello Kitty. In April, Victoria Couture and Hello Kitty already collaborated a limited edition line of t-shirts, bags and sandals. Now celebrating the openning of Sanrio Luxe in Time Square New York,  a new line of Victoria Couture X Hello Kitty is added to their Fall 08/09 collection. This Fall 08/09 line is more “work-friendly”, it includes some basic cardigan and sweaters that can mix and match with daily wardrobe. Also, there are some cute clutches and pouches that can go with our evening wears. Of course, coming from France and using cashmere and wool, Victoria Couture does not come in regular Hello Kitty price tag.

More pictures after the jump, the Victoria Couture collection is also available on Sanrio.

Badgley Mischka set and Honeydew panties

I come across a lot of lingerie because of work. This holiday season is going to be very interesting so far. We have Badgley Mischka set comes in cream/black. It has the hard-to-not-notice giant bow as the selling point. The bra might be a little hard to fit under any outfit without taking the bow off. But it definitely adorable on.

Honeydew always has very cute panties, but this pair is totally taking their ruffle panties to another level. Honeydew raffle panties usually come in either soft mesh raffle or hard polyester lace raffle. This time they combine the two and add layers of elegant silk on to the panties. So when you put it on, they are fuller/fluffier then the 2 kinds before. But they are very cute and comfortable.
