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 am pushing 40 and I see nothing wrong with wearing Hello Kitty embellished adult clothing at my age. I have a Victoria Couture HK cashmere hoodie that I simply love. I look & feel great and age is a state of mind and should be celebrated. The days of frumpy old moos moos and Mrs. Roper dresses for women my age are over. Women my age look better than ever and shouldn’t be critiqued over choosing to wear adult Hello Kitty.
