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.

NuBra X Hello Kitty comes in a set!

All the ladies out there should know about the magic of NuBra. NuBra helps you to wear all the tanks, low back, strapless and backless outfits. Because NuBra’s unique adhensive material helps stay in place without the straps/band. In US, the NuBra we could get are the very basic ones. But in Japan, they have all kind of different prints, design and color. Now Sanrio also makes bra and panty set with NuBra. The polka dots with Hello Kitty lace and giant bow in the middle are just pure love. No matter you are Hello Kitty lovers or lovely lolita sans, everyone would like to get a hold of them.
