okay, i am going through a smol crisis. i have hit the age where i’m like “am i too old to own sanrio stuff?”, lol. i’ve been questioning most of my overly colorful/juvenile and horror themed choice of decor.
first off, i can’t believe i’m 40… it’s disgusting, but like… i’m going to be 50 in 10 years. am i just cringe at this point? do people think i’m a weirdo? i’ve always been so confident in the things i enjoy and how i look, but recently i’ve been feeling like maybe it’s all childish and weird? i fucking hate it and i don’t know why i’m letting it get to me so much.
looking around my room makes me happy. there’s fun, colorful stuff everywhere. from my furniture to hanging art, there’s also a mix of a bunch of toys and lots of kitschy and/or plastic stuff… maybe i should just leave it at that, it makes me happy.
anyways, what brought this post on was freakin baggu releasing a hello kitty and friends line!
everything is really cute, but i didn’t impulse shop. i have so many baggu bags to begin with – i really don’t need anymore… but if the print is cute enough, i’ll snag it. i was eyeballing the HK lunch bag, but then i realized that my food containers wouldn’t even fit or sit in it properly. i ended up only purchasing the standard size little twin stars bag. first off, little twin stars is one of my faves, but i loved the colorway the most out of the other items.
after looking through the entire line, i realized i disliked the colors of everything, for myself. i think the orange background on the hello kitty items is really cute, but i personally don’t gravitate to orange stuff. i don’t own many items of clothing that are orange. funny enough, one of my favorite everyday use items that IS orange is a baggu fanny pack…? lol :shrug:
the keroppi bag is this gross yellow… i would just never use it. the socks are cute but i wouldn’t wear them. i don’t need another laptop sleeve, so that only left two purse-type bags. one was a salmon-y pink with a pattern of HK’s head and the other was a pea green keroppi bag. the pea green purse was a better color choice than the other yellow that’s on the standard bag, but that shit kicked in where i was like “okay, am i going to look like a cringe 40 year old using this?”
also: i rarely use bags since pandemic happened, if we’re being honest. i use fanny packs, this smol ikea bag (this is one of the handiest things i’ve ever purchased, lol. this is especially amazing for concerts or sports arenas. you can skip the bag line and carry next to nothing!) or i just shove my wallet cards into my pocket.
listen, even though i decided not to purchase a bunch of items from this line, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t! the items are absolutely adorbs, soooooo go check it out!
