Ready for a Hello Kitty outfit post, and video of my cat being a DJ? Let’s do it.

During the holidays, I test-drove my new sweater from the Forever 21 x Sanrio collaboration. This black and white design, featuring characters like Chococat and Monkichi, is my favorite piece from the collection.

Wore it with a braided black headband I found in my wardrobe, white holy tights, and a black pencil skirt. (This Christmas tree belonged to Matchstick Coffee in Vancouver.)

I like the dynamic all-around design of the sweater (Bad Badtz-Maru looks angry to be on the back). The white outlines keep it from looking too child-like.

Accessorized it with my new Toru x Mandycat kitty ring, whose tail wraps around the finger. (A full post about this Hong Kong pop-up store to come.) Silver sparkly nail polish goes with almost anything.

My boots are old Dr. Martens, probably from the late 90s. (Similar to these Doc Marten boots.) I switched the shoestrings to two shades of green suede.
