C. Wonder Opens its Doors to Californians

C. Wonder opened a new store in Los Angeles’ famous shopping center Fashion Island.

The Newport Beach store is the first West Coast location for the brand. In total, there are four stores which have been opened in the past year (with stores in New Jersey, New York, and now, California). It is currently considered a national brand, and there are plans to expand the Empire to locations around the World.

Products sold by this lifestyle brand include: apparel, accessories and home decorations. Chris Burch, the CEO and Founder of C. Wonder has stated there has been an exponentially high demand for C. Wonder’s apparel. The highest in demand apparel products are available in fabrics including knits, denim and woven cloths. Moreover, prints are incorporated into many of the products (such as rugs). Furthermore, they offer interesting products such as green and white city bikes.

The personalization of products is a 21st century retail trend. At C. Wonder you have the ability to personalize products, for example some monogram cuffs or home accessories, and one can even embroider jeans!

The L.A. store’s layout is based on various rooms that emulate various geographical regions. Room styles include: an English countryside, a Morocco-theme, an American styled kitchen-styled area and a Mexican Estate-referenced space.

At the opening event for the Southern California location, customers enjoyed beverages, the “Wheel of Wonder” and dj’ed musical entertainment.

JLO-Barbie

The New JLo Barbie Doll

Well, Mattel you have done it again. You have made a new doll in the likeness of Jennifer Lopez and once again have made her figure unrecognizable to anything that resembles JLo’s curvy body

Well, Mattel  you have done it again. You have made a new doll in the likeness of Jennifer Lopez and once again have made the figure of the doll unrecognizable to anything that resembles JLo’s curvy body. Just as the original Barbie doll is overly exaggerated to be an unrealistic version of a woman, you have cut the curves from Jennifer like you were slicing corned beef in a deli; ultra thin and very unsatisfying to receive.

Jennifer has long embraced her curvalicious form to the great delight of millions of fans. She has built her wardrobe around her booty and her thighs to show she is proud of her womanly figure and not afraid to show it. But Mattel in their misogynistic-type judgement has decided Jennifer is not perfect enough to show in true form but needed a little sculpting.  Hence the doll that looks like Jenny From the Block’s super skinny counterpart.

Let’s compare the two, shall we? Here are the dolls, dressed in outfits Jennifer has worn in real life. On the whole the dolls are pretty but with the trademark look that Mattel has established as a “real” woman’s body; big boobs, small waist, skinny thighs.

The doll is obviously not playing up her “ass”ets and is another disappointment to real women everywhere when the doll maker is once again promoting the idea that the “real woman” is going to be 36-18-33 in measurements. (Maybe in the 1800’s when women were wearing whalebone corsets and squeezing their innards into organ damaging shapes.) For once, I would like to see a doll that really shows the configuration of the person that they are trying to sell.

Pregnant Celebs-Kerry Washington Olivia Wilde Kristin Cavallari

‘Tis The Season For Celebrity Babies

We thought this past summer was the season for celebrity babies but Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde, and Kristin Cavallari proved us wrong.

We thought this past summer was the season for celebrity babies but Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde, and Kristin Cavallari proved us wrong. Scandal star is expecting her first child. This is yet another surprise announcement from People’s Best Dressed Woman winner. Earlier this year, she revealed a secret wedding with her now husband, 49ers cornerback, Nnamdi Asomugha. We’re definitely excited to see her pregnancy style on and off camera.

And we just got a glimpse of Olivia Wilde’s pregnancy style yesterday when she made her first public appearance since revealing her pregnancy. The actress looked beautiful in a Cushnie Et Ochs figure-hugging dress at the International Women’s Media Foundation’s Courage in Journalism Awards in Beverly Hills. The dress was classy yet still sexy and showed us that she’s just as or maybe even more glamorous with her baby bump. This will be her and her husband, Jason Sudeikis’, first child.

And former Hills star, Kristin Cavallari, is pregnant with baby number two. Cavallari and her husband, football player, Jay Cutler, celebrated their son’s first birthday over the summer and have expressed their desire for a big family. Cavallari told E! News that she “want[s] a little girl, but if I had another boy I would be so excited as well.” We loved Cavallari’s bohemian chic style when she was pregnant with Camden, so we can’t wait to see what look she goes for the second time around.
