Hi friends! I promised you some NYC shopping goodness and wanted to deliver. On my list was a trip to the prep paradise, C.Wonder. And it did not disappoint, I promise!

You love a good monogram? I hear ya.

If it’s not moving, I’m pretty sure it can be monogrammed. Although I see CARS that are monogrammed nowadays, so there goes that rule.

I loved this pink and orange clutch. The big ol’ knobs at the top. If there’s a pink/orange colorway in just about anything you can bet its my fave.

I wish I’d fluffed the pillows before I snapped this one, but I already felt suspicious enough. You can only pretend you’re sending so many text messages before it becomes completely obvious that you’re taking pictures.

I loved the warm colors on the green sofa and the nailhead trim popping with that yellow pillow. Although this sofa does have me wondering if 90s hunter green can be far behind…

More pillows! You can see that the jewel tones are really big here. Also, more monograms! Dishes on the left.

A little subtler, this tortoise shell collection was really pretty. I could see using this on a bright piece of furniture (like a kelly green) to ground it a little bit. I also liked those faux-horn boxes.

Speaking of kelly green, I loved these enamel frames. They came in several colors and sizes. They’d look so pretty mixed in with a silver frame collection to modernize it a little bit.

Price-wise, I thought C.Wonder was very reasonable, especially for how upscale it looks. There were also lots and lots of cute clothes, but I didn’t have the patience to try anything on, so I didn’t delve into that very much. But basically the entire store is like Tory Burch meets Lilly Pulitzer at J.Crew/West Elm prices. Not a bad deal if you ask me.

So clearly I had to buy SOMETHING, right?

 I got one of these. Can you guess which one?

(hint: rhymes with “knee-bra”)

Have you been to C.Wonder? There’s one opening in Atlanta soon and I’m psyched.

Stay tuned for some Fishs Eddy shopping pics!

    Orange and pink – my favorite combination of colors. Had a dress in the 70’s in those colors and loved it. If you look at the pic of Bill and me with the granddaughters at Ashbey’s graduation, we look like a big splash of pink and orange!
