Spoiler Alert: Upon entering a C. Wonder store, you may feel more like a guest at a party than a shopper.
To explore a store could turn into the best surprise of your day as there is something beautiful and unexpected around every corner. Be prepared for lovely people to walk up to you with trays of fresh squeezed lemonade and frozen Popsicle sticks to keep you cool, then indulge by filling a bag of treats from a colorful candy bar. Enjoy music spun by a Dee Jay and the chance to win great prizes all day long just because you walked through the door. Oh, what a C. Wonderful world...
Which I took very seriously, of course.
I honestly didn't think it was possible for me to love Sharpies any more--until I found that pretty porcelain elephant catch-all to put them in! (Monogrammed ones also available!) And, how about the pink phone and iPad keyboard?
WHAT? Come again??!! Please honestly tell me that I can walk around your store and pull any piece of jewelery I want to wear for the party? OK, tell me again.
A few of my favorite picks were a sweet Love You bracelet (I also picked one up as a gift for a love!) and the signature C. Wonder charm bracelet. It was so fun to twirl around and discover each new dangle, from a whimsical monkey to a Faberge-style egg.
Hey Ms. Dee Jay...how fab is she?
This picnic basket hurts my feelings I love it so much.
And, yes, I think I will ride away into the Southampton sunset on one of your colorful city bikes complete with wicker basket and a bell. Cute. With a capital C.
Thank you for the perfect Summer day spent at this lovely spot. And, special thanks to Mermaids Jamie Malkin, Shelley Colangelo, Jennifer Edwards Milam of Reveal, Daniela Maron, Selmin Arat and Julie and her entire store team for being so amazing and making it all happen in such a beautiful way.
