When I was younger, my favorite store was Sanrio. It was located at the mall across town so I didn’t get to go very often. But when I did, oh goodness, did I love it. I’d save up my money so I could go to Sanrio and buy pens, pencils, and notebooks. I especially loved their surprise bags. I can’t remember how much they were but I adored the thrill of picking a bag to see what was included. It makes sense that I now love blind boxes and subscription boxes.
Recently, I rediscovered my love for Hello Kitty and the Sanrio bunch. I decided to attend the Hello Kitty Friendship Festival and that really reignited the love I have for the cute characters. Now, a few years after that adorable event, I’ve gotten back into Sanrio and decided that I wanted to showcase my love.
I recently saw a friend on Instagram wearing a Hello Kitty dress and knew immediately that I wanted to add it to my wardrobe. I added it to my Christmas wish list and hoped that maybe someone would get it for me. As you may guess, someone did. My amazing Dad surprised me with the dress on Christmas day. As soon as I opened that box and tore the tissue paper, I fell in love with the dress.
It has an adorable collar, sweet little lace details, and it even has pockets! WHAAAT? I know. Any dress with pockets = best thing ever.

I love this freaking dress!!! The fabric is stretchy and breathable which combines to make a really comfy outfit. Any dress that can make you feel cute while comfortable is a win to me. I want to feel confident in my clothes and being comfortable is a big part of that.
I decided to pair the dress with my cute black cardigan and black tights so the dress would pop. I’ll just say, I’m really happy with how the look came out!!
Big thank you to my dear friend, Nicole, for snapping these photos. She did an amazing job!
How would you style this dress?
