The Seattle-based retailer Totokaelo (they also semi-recently opened a NYC store) specializes in pretty avant-garde offerings, but if you dig you can find a lot of solidly cool-but-not-too-cool items on the site as well. I found a few pieces worth coveting there the other day—some on the splurgy side—and thought I’d share. First up: I can’t say for sure, but I think maybe these could be a perfect trouser. I like the fit of Hope trousers in general, and this pair has a just-slouchy-enough cut that appeals.
I dig a nice big clunky platform, and this one from Clergerie has some serious clunk.
I own this Zero + Maria Cornejo top, and it is not cheap but so worth it: I usually dislike anything with a cold shoulder, but it’s done in such a drapey, feminine way here. I’ve worn it with everything from dressy skirts to jeans. An investment top, if you believe in such things.
A pair of dark jeans in a really good wash.
Such a delicate, pretty little diamond pendant.
