Dubai aka the Sheikhland is the glamour-hub where brands are celebrated and fashion is religion. Added to the list of international brands with their flagship stores here, the Sheikhland now welcomes C. Wonder, the revolutionary lifestyle brand that exploded onto the retail scene with the debut of its New York City store in October 2011 with the international license agreement for the Middle East with Al Tayer Group. The brainchild of visionary entrepreneur J. Christopher Burch, founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital, C. Wonder offers women’s clothing, footwear, jewelry and accessories, housewares and home decor, great gifts, and delightful surprises at every turn.
I was all delighted to be at the launch of this wonderful store in the Mall of the emirates. Apart from browsing, shopping the great stuff available in the store, what was really exciting was to get some stylist tips from the very famous stylist and fashion blogger – Teresa Karpinska.
Teresa shared some hot new trends of the season with yours truly so, are you all ready for a dose of fashion but fashion that is quick and easy to do as Teresa very correctly pointed out that most of us do not have the liberty of spending hours infront of the mirror to look all glammed up, but then there definitely are ways to look like a fashionista with the budgeted time you have on hand before you pop out to work and take on the world.
So, here are a few tips shared by Teresa –
Mix and match patterns
Those days are gone when you would put a floral trouser with a plain tee. ‘Mising and matching of patterns’ is the new trend of the season and as put together by Teresa, how this tee with stripes looks so cool with the floral pants.
Soft and flowing fabrics are the in-thing
Soft and flowing fabrics are not only comfortable to wear but also make you look thin. The good news is that they are the in-thing. Just see how this soft fabric polka dots shirt when teamed with the striped bottom looks amazing.
Use layers in statement necklaces
A plan tee/top just gets a whole new look when worn with statement necklace but putting them in layers takes the fashion-element to a whole new level. Teresa also advises to mix gold and silver for a very trendy look.
Now aren’t these tips really cool? Thank you so much Teresa for them and for constantly inspiring us to look fashionable. 🙂
Well, now allow me to share with you all some of my favourite things from the store –
I simply loved these printed blazers/jackets that can so easily add so much smartness to your look when worn either over a dress or a simple tee and jeans. What say you?
I love to give and receive personalized gifts and C Wonder store gives you plenty of choices with a lot many options of personalised items. I quite liked these mugs and plates with initials on. Would make a perfect gift, I think.
I am big time into statement necklaces these days and here is my fav from C wonder –
Loved this skirt which was Teresa’s pick too from the store –
Metallic heels are in vogue at the minute and I loved these –
And last but not the least, my most favourite pick is this cute pair of shoes saying ‘Be happy’ 🙂
