It isn't very often that you come across a boutique so beautifully curated, with such a strong point of view and such incredible brands that you'd be delighted to own any item in the store. A few months after moving to Seattle, I discovered that one such boutique happens to be around the corner from my apartment.
Meet Totokaelo, one of Seattle's coolest womenswear shops. It's home to brands like Acne, Rachel Comey, Dieppa Restrepo, Isabel Marant, A.P.C., Alexander Wang and tons of hip indie labels. Internationally known for its online shop, the brick-and-mortar store opened in 2003 and moved from downtown Seattle to an amazing, airy space on Capitol Hill this summer. It's a must-visit for fashion-minded tourists and locals alike.
(FYI — this isn't an ad. I just want to give some love to a rad neighborhood shop!)
