Last night, there was an opening party for the new Sanrio Luxe store, in New York City's Times Square. In attendance: Lisa Loeb, Heatherette designer Richie Rich, noted socialite Tinsley Mortimer, drag legend Lady Bunny… And Hello Kitty herself, wearing a gorgeous kimono! On display were all of the items one will be able to purchase at the new store: $100 Cashmere scarves, blingy jewelry, luggage and designer leather gloves. Get cat scratch fever, after the jump.
