Becoming a fan of C. Wonder wasn’t hard. After all, the store is less than a block away from the Babble offices in Soho and I’m “forced” (riiight) to walk into through the big, green doors everyday en route for my 2 PM Diet Coke. Last year, they opened their flagship store on Spring Street and just this month, they unveiled their brand new shop in Columbus Circle (Spot me in their promotional video chewing gum like a crazed maniac!) and both are beautiful. Don’t believe me? See for yourself:
We’re talking colored zebras! (P.S. that’s C. Wonder’s founder, Chris Burch!)
aaaaand color, color, COLOR:
It’s fabtastic. (Fab + fantastic.) So when the fine folks at C. Wonder asked if I wanted to preview their holiday lookbook at their HQ, I grabbed my fashionable co-worker & work wife, Dara Pettinelli, and we sprinted over to the corner of 25th & Broadway. Needless to say, the collection didn’t disappoint. Below are just a few items I had to be physically dragged away from. —Andrea Zimmerman, Manager of Blogs & Social Media at Disney Interactive

Contrast-Tipped Cardigan 6 of 11Up unti about a year ago, I used to dress in all black, all the time. I'm past that weird phase, thank god, so I'm loving these bright cardigans. Also, our office is so chilly I have to sit next to a space heater, so this is a great solution to have on-hand.

Heart on your sleeve shetland crewneck | $68 7 of 11Hearts make me happy because they remind me of high school doodles.

Brown Riding Boots | $298 9 of 11These would totally be a splurge, but OMYGOSH LOOK AT THEM. I want to curl up and make a home in these boots. Please join me.

Whimsical Cheese Board | $28 10 of 11I've been known to throw a mean wine & cheese party back in my day (okay, last week), and this would be such a fun display item! Brie & riesling, anyone?

Earrings in Tree Formation 11 of 11This was a new item (so new they didn't have stock images yet) but how great for a gift? And I can vouch, after owning three pairs, C. Wonder knows how to do a classy earring at a reasonable price.
