|My PCD Loot|
Anyway, I loved the items I bought from the store. They're all very girlie and shows the inner doll in me. The girl group has been an advocate of women empowerment anyway so I definitely support their aim. It's just sad now though that PCD has disbanded ... and they will only be remembered by their music and their merchandise ...

Anyway, here are the items I bought:
- Pussycat Dolls Logo Keychain, 1 for $5.00
- Pussycat Dolls Logo Necklace, 1 for 1 $15.00
- PCD College Kitten Girl, 1 for $5.00
- Pussycat Dolls Old English T SS/Med Black/White, 1 for $5.00
- Pussycat Dolls PCD Photo Book, 1 for FREE valued at $10
I find their merchandise affordable. They're not cheap but affordable. I purchased them in 2010 and until now, the keychain and the necklace have not tarnished a bit. The necklace is definitely a fave for me. I wear it on casual and even formal attire. I wear it at work too and it's really a great find, I must say.
They have a lot of other items too - like jewelries, accessories, shirts, dresses, etc. Everything that would suit a girlie lifestyle, you bet you can find it here!
Being a fan, I wanted to dress up like them too. Okay fine kill me now! LOL. I can't be a doll like them lah~ I know that. I ain't that sexy nor toned up. I also can't imagine dressing too-much like them anyway ... being scantily-clad and all. A number of parents and other conservatives have definitely moved against them for being, as they said, a "bad influence" to their kids / daughters. Well, as for me, it's really a way of how they bring up their kids anyway. It's not PCD that will make their daughters as sl*ts ... while the environment and society does play a role in the girls' upbringing; it's definitely the parents' rearing that defines them. Anyway, I rest my case ... not the time to discuss that hehe.
The girl fan in me did try to get a piece of their Burlesque/Pussycat Dolls-styled lingerie called "Shhh...by Robin Antin" - it's oozing with sexiness and girl power confidence. I thought I'd be able to get it anyway from some local La Senza stores here anyway so I didn't bother getting them online anymore.
|Pussycat Dolls for La Senza|
This girl group has been really successful in the music scene, to their concerts / events, to being a global image and an international commercial brand. They even had dolls (which I also wanted to purchase, I must say!) for crying out loud! Their worldwide hits have outgrown their brand as a diversified name that included all other merchandise. They had reality TV shows, numerous product endorsements, and loads more. They were so successful that the PCD sexy brand is such a shame to have split up. I cry buckets! (T_T) I was hoping I could catch them in another concert series (because I missed the one they had here in the Philippines a few years back) and now, I am never gonna see them together again. Haaaay.
Now, we can only remember them for their successful music, and their merchandise. I definitely miss this girl group for their very catchy music that will be a forever-anthem for girls like me, I guess.
The dolls have also been successful in bringing out the "doll" in me ... that "inner pussycat doll" ... while they're definitely a brand now, they're still that girl group for me that has been successful in their advocacy for women empowerment. They've helped hone me to be that confident and powerful lady that I am now. Their message is always boosting with confidence and making girls like me confident as well, like them; in any way possible. I love listening to their music and watching their videos. I also have that DVD of their concert in London that I watch numerous times; and dance out with their routines. It serves as my exercise now. Hehe. They're truly an inspirational group for me. Don't get me wrong. I don't worship them or what ... I just simply, like this group as any fan would. (^_^)
And so my rating for this global brand ... I give ...
CHAI'S VERDICT: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (5 Stars!!!)
