C Wonder opened its first West Coast store at Fashion Island this Summer. Christopher Burch's colorful store has a little bit of everything, a shopper's dream, really.
Affordable luxury, bright, bold, patterns...fun...all these words describe this store.
I was lucky enough to be invited to a pre Grand-opening party. Bloggers and shoppers had the chance to tour the store, mingle and watch the crowds lining up- all before the big reveal. Did I say fun?
I had such a nice time talking to Kristina of Nook & Sea, [on the left] and Susan & Jennifer from Tiny Oranges [on the right]. The shoes? Yeah, I'm going to have to go back, there is a pair of flats with my name on them....
Kristine at Nook & Sea described C Wonder "like an explosion between Kate Spade, Victoria’s Secret and J. Crew – could it really get much better than that?" I think she hit it.
I loved all the gift items with initials on them- specially the plates, I have a thing for plates. There were so many beautiful initialed items that would make lovely gifts. The monogram store? -Inspired. You can purchase a gift and have it monogrammed right in the store. C Wonder had clothing, shoes, hand bags, fun eye-wear. Oh, and the pet items! Fun! Lots of fun, chunky and bright jewelry and a section with ipod and ipad accessories. Again, the gift-giving possibilities are pretty endless here.
This is a fun store, a great mix of luxury items and affordable-luxury items. You can shop C Wonder online or in person at Fashion Island.
