Honestly? I had no intention of heading back to the local mall. At least not for a little while! Despite the fact that the world seems to be opening back up (bit by bit)....my comfort level isn't really there yet. That being said, my mom had a few returns that were long overdue thanks to the shutdowns, and she asked me to come with her while she handled them. So, back I went to the mall. There was a short line outside of Hot Topic and the temptation won out. As a lover of band t-shirts, television merchandise, and nostalgic items, Hot Topic is one of my all-time favourite places to be. It is a store that I have been unable to enter since late 2020, either due to shutdowns, an unwillingness to leave the house, or massive lineups. Heading back inside was a very exciting moment. I tried to make the process short and sweet, since there were still a handful of people waiting outside, but I was able to snag a few items that were on my wish list. Ready to take a look? Here is my mini Hot Topic haul.
The accessories are another obsession. The first set is a necklace set that includes different charms that can be added or switched out. Each of the charms is a symbol associated with Sailor Moon and of course, is wonderfully themed. I personally love the charms on the bottom row and plan to turn them into mismatched earrings instead. They are just so beautiful and would look amazing worn together. As for the other set? It is all about those gorgeous earrings. I love the variety that the set included (stars, moons, and even silhouettes of Luna and Artemis). Then on the bottom row, there are small hoops earrings with dangling symbols from the show (like the iconic compact). These are fabulous because some of the earrings are more subtle and some are more obviously related to Sailor Moon. There is a lot to choose from here and I absolutely adore these.
