Heavens!! The Hello Kitty Carnival came to town (Santa Monica, CA) and naturally, I dropped everything and went. Seriously, I was turning Japanese by taking photos of every single detail. Here are a sliver of all the photos I took. It was like Sanrio exploded and each glitter turned into a damn carnival game. It was like the smoke became artwork with it’s own booth. It’s was like Twin Little Stars fluttered from the heavens and said, “Make mine a 99”. It was like…  I’ll stop there. But you get what I mean.

Anyway, there was a mini-golf, ferris wheel, carnival booths, artwork from famous artists, like Joe Ledbetter, a Hello Kitty pop-up shop (with a 2 hour wait to get in) and loads of food trucks, and yummy desserts. Pretty much what I expect in heaven when I kick the bucket. I hope God is taking notes.

Anywho, I wore a vintage mohair cape from Scotland, powder blue Hunter boots, Vivienne Westwood handbag, Benetton argyle knit skirt, and house ring by We Wear. My hair was an unfortunate experiment with my hot curlers- never again.

Maison Martin Margiela, known for its FUG designs, has designed an outfit for Barbie for her 50th birthday that reminds me of a Barbarian Barbie. She wears a coat made of hair from other dolls that  stole Barbie’s street corner. No, I don’t know! I wasn’t there.  

Anyway, Barbie gets made over by fashion’s favorites like Karl Lagerfeld, Jean-Paul Gaultier, and Calvin Klein and will be on display at Galeries Lafayette in Paris, France. The exhibition runs until April 25th, 2009. Be sure to check it out if you’re in those parts. Also, be sure to check out the amazing toy department there.
