Hello Kitty: Love It or Hate It?

12/28/2006 at 11:00 AM ET

I’ve come to believe that the world in divided into two: those who adore Hello Kitty, and those who detest her. I am in the former group. In fact, when jewelry designer Tarina Tarantino made a high fashion Hello Kitty “pearl” necklace in 2003, I was first in line to buy one. . . well, make that second because I think Cameron Diaz got hers first. And the love continues — Jennifer Love Hewitt and Vanessa Minillo recently stocked up on Hello Kitty cashmere sweaters from Kitson. Knitted, this cat’s not cheap — Hello Kitty cashmere starts at $198 for a sweater and goes up, but you can get tons of things for under $10 at shop.sanrio.com or check out faux-vintage tees, from $33, on 80spurple.com. Tell us: Do you adore Hello Kitty? Or detest her? — Alison Singh Gee

I LOVE her! I am sitting at my computer next to a Hello Kitty calculator. I have a HK change purse, pencil box, ring, slippers, the list goes on. I don’t do the t-shirts or any “going” out fashion items as Paris does, (I am 30 years old!) but everything else is fair game. She was born in 1976 and so was I! It’s part nostalgia, and part love of pink! Besides, they make all the HK items soooo damn cute!
