    Just-A-Swingin' — charm bracelet

    #TBT MOMENT: APRIL 5th 2001, CENTRAL ARIZONA via THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC

    It was 2001.  We were labeled as many things.
    We were vintage.  We were groovy.  We were naughty & clever.  We were a bit sassy and sweet.  We were thoughtful but never sad/blue or mean/cruel in humor or tone (even if we wanted to) because our most important assets were and are our artwork, our style and YOU.  These three things separate us from the rest!
     
    The Arizona Republic considered the combo of our artwork, our style and our broad appeal to "Pop & Fresh" worthy, ready viewing in their style section.
    Citing the versatility & freshness our style and artwork brings to accessories otherwise overlooked, simply just by adding our vintage tongue-in-cheek naughty, but G rated nature of our pin-up girls and/or the stark simplicity of a red on white cross.  
    Winky&Dutch has a unique & identifiable style of their own BUT we are here to enhance not block the wearers personal style even if the wearer is fast tracking her way up the corporate ladder on a stair master wearing a purse on her head. Why would we would ever want to block that?  Not in a million years.
    Do you have press, photos or news from the past about Winky&Dutch?  Share it with pr@shopwinky.com we would love to see what you found/have.

    #TBT Purrfection: Hello Kitty + Winky&Dutch circa 2002

    Hello Kitty!

    Here Kitty Kitty!

    Come on kitty kitty kitty, be a good kitty, come on.

    So went the cries of every retailer everywhere. It was early in the aughts and there seemed to be an unquenchable thirst for Hello Kitty. The Sanrio Hello Kitty Brand may have seemed like a mass product, but Hello Kitty didn't just jump into the licensing sandbox with just anyone.  Luckily, Winky&Dutch with their charm & tenacity acquired an official license to carry Hello Kitty within the Winky&Dutch product assortment.

    [caption id="attachment_2814" align="aligncenter" width="227"]HELLO HELLO HELLO HELLO KITTY Hello Kitty flies a plane Hello Kitty rides a bike Hello Kitty paints a masterpiece Hello Kitty fries things up in a pan There is nothing HELLO KITTY can't do.[/caption]    

     There was no end to where Hello Kitty could go or what Hello Kitty could do in combination with the Winky&Dutch classic accessories.

    [caption id="attachment_2815" align="aligncenter" width="230"]Fridge Magnets were and still are a Winky&Duth signature gift to get and receive  Winky&Dutch Hello Kitty Fridge Magnets still decorate refrigerators and cubicles across the land[/caption]

    Bracelets, key fobs, earrings, and necklaces too!

    Bracelets, key fobs, earrings, and necklaces too!

    Put a bracelet on it.  One can never understand the impact of HelloKitty on Winky&Dutch - we were proud of it beyond belief.

    Even though Winky&Dutch and Hello Kitty are no longer affiliated, we encourage you to share pics of your favorite Winky&Dutch pieces from way back when, and not just on #TBT, do it anytime. Share them with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or as a reply to this blog post
