Finger Puppets : Käthe-Kruse Puppen
by Lisa Topiol
As a little girl I was in love with Hello Kitty. I had pencils, pens, stationary, purses, keychains, even a trashcan! Basically, when I got older my obsession lessened and eventually disappeared, but there's still a special place in my heart for Hello Kitty and her cute, mouthless smile. To this day, when I come across something from Sanrio, I fall instantly in love. I love that Urban Outfitters has this adorable Hello Kitty Puzzle Head for sale because it's a great piece to remind me of my childhood and looks great in an office, or to entertain younger guests who visit your house. This puzzle is an awesomely cute stocking stuffer or gift for a friend and anyone who spent their youth obsessed with Sanrio will get a kick out of this adorable 3D puzzle! I love the use of pink and white, and Hello Kitty seriously looks adorable! Sure, I don't really need something like this for my house, but I know I must have it! This little kitty is going to become your instant computer desk buddy!Where to Buy - Urban OutfittersPrice - $18.00Who Found It - Ltopiol was the first to add the 'Hello Kitty Puzzle Head' to the Hive.

German fashion designer Esther Perbandt was born and raised in Berlin where she's currently a fixture in the minimalist and avant garde fashion scene. Launched in 2004, the label is known for their moody and androgynous style. Her latest collection for Spring 2010 titled "Instrumental" is a study in black and white with a few notable looks in pink. One of my favorite dresses is a mini dress with a sweetheart neckline with a sheer overlay on top which would create a beautiful fluid look with any movement. Most of her garments can be worn loosely in an easygoing way or a simple cinch at the waist with a belt can change the whole look. An additional accessories line complete with bags and jewelry (like this brass and faux hair necklace) completes the Esther Perbandt fashion empire. Take a look at my slideshow to see more!
