C. Wonder Is Closing, So Snatch Up These Favorites!

C. Wonder, preppy haven of all things monogrammed and colorful, is closing its stores. The line was seemingly created as a copycat revenge project against C. Wonder owner Chris Burch’s ex-wife, designer Tory Burch, which makes me feel slightly less sad about missing out on the store’s semi-gaudy goodies. Still, I can’t help but mourn the loss of some of C. Wonder’s better designs. Here are some of the line’s cutest offerings, many of which are on sale, to snatch up while you still have the chance!

My First Year In New York City, As Told By My Amazon Purchase History

This piece was originally published on The Daily Dot.

After 26 years of living in California, I moved to New York City in February 2014. I did not handle it well. Although I was moving for a fun job to a city I’d often fantasized about living in, I still found myself on the corner of First Street and First Avenue in the East Village every single day after work, sobbing on the phone to my mom, begging her to convince my dad it wouldn’t be giving up if I moved back home.

I Did My Christmas Shopping Early This Year And It Was Awesome

Presents

A few months ago, I decided on a whim that I would get my holiday shopping done early, and I’m so glad I did. I tend to be somewhat of a last-minute gift shopper, and when the idea to shop early popped into my head I wanted to make a silly little challenge with myself to see if I could actually do it. I started planning out what to buy for people on my list that same day. I’d had a weird summer and thought I’d need random projects to keep myself from getting aimlessly sad in the fall, so at first, my goal was to have all my presents purchased by the end of October.
