small gift, big smile

if you didn't already know, sanrio celebrated its 50th anniversary this past week in santa monica. this store has been a part of my life since I was born practically. from plush toys, to pens, that sugarlicious bubble gum (that scent is so familiar to me), and who can forget those friendship files!? who would have known those little notebooks would cause so much drama in the classroom...
anyway, I went to the festival/expo/convention a week ago when it first opened and to be honest, I'm kind of upset I didn't go more than once! so azn of me...thankfully my friend from san francisco was in town that weekend and actually heard about the event so we headed out there with her friends for a Hello Kitty-filled day of mini games (many dollars wasted on the claw machine, btw), art, and food (we feasted on hot dogs from the dogtown food truck and had some yogurtland froyo for desert. yum.)

who da mouse?

found this pic of Liu Wen in Elle China and got totally inspired to compile a little mouse-themed collage: 

from Gaga Barbie, to Deadmau5, I really cannot get enough of the cartoon inspired look which I like to believe originated from the OG Mouse, Mickey. can't say I'm a fan of real life mice but the pretend ones are snazzy.

mondo's circus

I still don't understand why Mondo Guerra's collection didn't win him the grand prize for last season's Project Runway considering that I cannot think of another designer who could create the same look, print & color combos, accessories as Mondo...whatever. over it. the least we can do is enjoy these photos from the final runway:

too busy to blog, but too committed to not.
