So I was shopping in one of our local malls, Tyson’s Corner a few days before Christmas and I wandered into the new store C. Wonder. I fell in love with the store instantly, but of course I didn’t find one Christmas gift that I needed for anyone on my list. What I did find, was a whole bunch of cute things that I could use for myself. Isn’t that usually the case when Christmas shopping?
C. Wonder has some really neat outfits, but it doesn’t just stop there. In addition to the cute, colorful clothing and accessories, the store, founded by Tory Burch‘s former husband J.Christopher Burch, also has a very stylish line of home decor items, dinnerware, handbags, stationery, and even items for your favorite dog. It is really a Lifestylist’s dream. There are cute Ikat print and Chevron print dishes, colorful votive holders and lots of little monogrammed items that you don’t think you really need until you see them. I fell in love with so many things, but my favorite item, hands down, has to be the cobalt blue ceramic Foo Dog set. They are based on the design of the stone sculptures seen on buildings in China. I like them because I could easily see them sitting on my console table like two really cool blue watch dogs. They are $58 for the set and they also come in white. At some point I plan on switching up my living room decor using several different shades of blue. I think these little guys (or guy and girl) will make an awesome addition. Every room needs that one unexpected element, and every girl should surround herself with those lovely little luxuries that mean something to just her. These cobalt blue Foo Dogs will definitely be one of mine.
Until next time,
