Fast forward to this morning while watching the news, I was half paying attention when I heard the name Tory Burch. I immediately gave Good Morning America my full attention while they explained that C Wonder is owned by Tory Burch's ex husband Christopher...hence the "C". Suddenly, it all made sense! The newscaster went on to explain that Tory was suing her ex for stealing trade secrets and designs and that he was suing her for breach of contract. Really? Yes, some of the stuff is similar to hers and here is an example:
I bought a navy J Crew Schoolboy blazer this year and I really love it. The quality is excellent for the price point--fully lined and nicely finished with a great petite fit and the fabric is very soft. I remarked to LAM that I was concerned that J Crew's quality had been going down a bit, but this item reassured me that they are making the effort. Perhaps it's competition from the C Wonders of the world or possibly they are motivated by some other factor. No matter--the end result is a nice product and I can't complain about that.
