favorite picks: totokaelo


Being on the Totokaelo website makes my wallet hurt. How can one store have so many of the things on my wishlist? The number one items on my list is the above Margiela bag. I've been thinking about seriously splurging on a bag that will last me years, and since I'm not big on the overtly classic and apparent luxury bags, I'd rather have something like this one which fits everything and will encourage me to stop switching bags so often. Other things on my list include a pair of simple black Karen Walker sunglasses, those Rachel Comey booties, and more.



The website was just relaunched today and it super easy to navigate but my favorite part of the site is the styling suggestions on the first page. I'd actually purchased my Acne trousers and have been a member for a couple months and if you find anything you seriously like, I suggest you sign up for membership and join the Totokaelo community. I'm crossing my fingers that a few of my favorites go on sale soon!


I promise I'm not getting paid to endorse them, hahh. I'm trying to experiment more with this blog, and I'm sure you'd like to see a bit more of what's in my head, right? Let me know what you think. Click through images to see the product links.

I liked this post, because it is always nice to learn about new stores and get a review of them. I love that dress/jumper it is adorable!

I definitely like this new direction:).

Oh ma god! I love totokaelo. I've been wanting to get a pair of acnes skinnies, but never having tied them on, I'm not sure. How do you find they fit? So far everyone is telling me to size way way up...Is that right?

Also have you seen the RC cushings flat there. Gah. I want them so bad. Totokaelo is NOT budget friendly...hehe

That looks like a perfect all-purpose bag, you should get it if you can afford it! Nice picks in general, I particularly like the Karen Walker shades and Acne trousers, they look so soft and comfortable, are they actually denim?

I've fallen instantly in love with those boots - the clour, the shape, the heel! It looks like the type of boots you'd wear to death because they're so comfy. Nothing worse than uncomfortable boots.

Gen said...

I like these kinds of posts too. And also, I would kill for those boots. They're so beautiful :)

rinacatastrophe said...

Love those round Karen Walkers! I am seriously contemplating getting them in the tortoise shell color, I even did a blog post about it weeks ago. They seem to be popping up everywhere. I can't even visit shopping websites like this anymore, I'd have to cut my credit card into a million pieces.

Hi there! I just began following your blog(thanks to a blog savvy sis who shared her knowledge) and I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy reading your posts! I'm a Berkeley native and currently studying abroad so it is really exciting to see all my fav restaurants and places from the bay.
ps. killer sunglasses!

Michelle Yue said...

ooh I like <3

SMUT said...

Brilliant, haha! I was thinking that this sounded like you'd been paid. But I'll try not to be cynical.. maybe they'll send you a little freebie for the endorsement ;]
Those glasses are really really nice

I love the stuff at Totokaelo, but it's all marked way up! There are a pair of Marais sandals on there for $120, on sale at Urban for $60. Good to shop around if you see something you like on there. (Not that I don't appreciate the difference between a well curated boutique and say, Urban Outfitters, but still...)
