A C. Wonder-ful Celebration at True Foods Kitchen

A C. Wonder-ful Celebration at True Foods Kitchen

C. Wonder is making their west coast debut at Fashion Island in Newport Beach later this summer and The Trend Tribe was on hand to welcome the store at a VIP luncheon hosted by the brand.

Saturday’s special event took place at True Food Kitchen and C. Wonder pulled out all of the stops. Invited guests enjoyed delicious dishes and a celebration of gifts which left us all truly spoiled.

Seated outside on the patio, True Food Kitchen was the perfect backdrop for the neon-monogrammed themed party. Guests mingled and sipped on cocktails before being seated where assorted colored C. Wonder signature enamel bangles added an extra touch and served as napkin rings.

The bracelets were not the only surprises…

On each of our seats were three of the most beautiful gift boxes imaginable. Personally, I could not wait until lunch was over to look at the goodies, the minutes felt like hours. Needless to say, it was WELL worth the wait! The gifts were gorg! In addition to the bracelets, guests received an enormous gift bag filled with monogrammed C. Wonder presents.

OC celebrities and Bravo TV personalities, Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley, of the Real Housewives of Orange County also came to enjoy the festivities.

I cannot stop thinking about their penny loafers, so the Fashion Island location better have a size 8.5 in every color!

Scheduled to open in Fashion Island this August, C. Wonder will be a 5,000 square-feet wonderland of preppy goodness and monogrammed loveliness. Until then, you can visit C. Wonder online at

  1. The gift boxes and gifts themselves are just gorgeous. I love the bright colors!

    • The boxes are amazing. They are so sturdy, well made and beautifully designed that if you received one for a gift you would be over the moon with excitement!

  2. Looks like a fun store! Ive been interested in learning more about C.Wonder since I saw them featured on The Pitch. Will have to check it out this summer!

    • Super, super, super cute stuff! I used the Easy Nylon Tote all day today and I have no idea how I’ve lived without it up until now!

  3. Love Fashion Island – I’ll have to check out this store when it opens. I worked at a Pappagallo store when I was in college – this looks like that on steroids! How fun!

    • Hi Sharon, Thanks for stopping by! I personally cannot wait for the store to open. Everyone I know will be getting something monogrammed for the holidays!

  4. Love the doors! This shop looks like a must-visit spot the next time I’m at Fashion Island!

    • Are those doors fantastic or what? They are opening in August and I’d love for The Tribe to celebrate at their store with some cocktails!

  5. this looks amazing! and living in LA it is worth the drive to check out!! thanks!!

    • Thank you for stopping by! It’s simply a fun, fun, store! You’ll love it. There is something for all ages to enjoy.

  6. What was the food like?

    • Hi Anne, great question! I’m a big picker, so the apps were beyond perfect. I enjoy tasting a bunch of different thing, so I loved the hummus, the different pizzas (my overall favorites) and the edamame seasoning was amazing. I enjoyed one of their freshly squeezed beet juices and I felt incredible almost immediately. The tacos were just ‘OK,’ but the vegetable salad was INCREDIBLE! And the ginger lemon ice cream so delish! Here are some photos of the food on our FB page:

  7. I LOVE all of the vibrant colors! Great Post!

    • Thank you!!! Aren’t the colors fab? I love them and they just make you automatically feel happy when they are all around you.

  8. I’m normally not a big fan of monogramed things (maybe I’ve been around people who went to crazy with it…), I’ll have to check it out though for gifts!

    • Hi Katie! I *completely* understand and that is the beauty of C. Wonder. All of their pieces stand alone beautifully. Everything comes blank so if you do not want anything to be monogrammed, then you are not obligated.

  9. Everything looks so pretty! I will have to check out the store next time I am at Fashion Island.

    • Hi Sharlene! You will be so pleased that you did.

  10. I can’t wait to check out this store! I too hope for drinks with the Tribe when it opens! Looks like you had fun with your new RHOC friends!!

    • Ha! I told KK that I was replacing her and Gretchen is my new BFF. She’s now taking Vicky to Morrissey 😉

  11. OMG. My favorite restaurant and all that preppy goodness to boot!? I’m going to go wait outside the door with my preppy handbook. I’ll live on fresh pressed gingerale from TFK!

    • I’ll be the one with the loafers, argyle & seersucker!

  12. The gift boxes are indeed lovely. {sigh} I wish we had a store as nice up here in the San Fernando Valley.

    • The boxes were a gift themselves. Just gorg! You will need to make a trip down!

  13. great gifts!! love the colors!

    • The colors were fabulous and looked so amazing with the True Food Kitchen decor. They really outdid themselves.

  14. I love that green door.

    • Me too!!!

  15. I love those gifts! Anything with my initials is a must-buy for me.

    • I haven’t stopped using them yet! I’m obsessed.

  16. I can’t wait to check out this new store!

    • It’s a must! The best place to keep in the back of your head for hostess and teacher gifts.

  17. OMG the colors!!! Those brights just make me really happy. Can’t wait to see the store when it opens!

    • I know!! This is definitely going to be my new ‘happy’ place!

  18. Those are gorgeous! You are one lucky girl!!

    • Thank you, Sara! I’m so in love with the pieces. That Easy Tote is such a fantastic piece. I love it.
