This shop in the Seattle Capitol Hill neighborhood is worthy of buying a plane ticket just to visit. Totokaelo = Toto Perfection.
We're bringing you a little peak into this amazing boutique, nestled between the Elliott Bay Bookstore and Odd Fellows Cafe on 10th ave.
Sourcing our favorites of Rachel Comey, Humanoid, No.6, Illesteva, Mansur Gavriel, The Row, and so many more, weekly stop in's (oops did we mean daily!) are a must for us. And that shoe wall, oh shoes, oh pretty pretty shoes.
Here's our recommended agenda when planning your visit to the Seattle Totokaelo store:
Stop 1. Coffee. Because you're in Seattle, right?We like Vivace, Victrola, Cafe Vita and Stumptown. All are in walking distance from Totokaelo. Wander the neighborhood with your cappuccino or head straight to the shopping.
Stop 2. Elliott Bay Bookstore to pick up copies of Vogue Paris and The Gentlewoman. This is our favorite bookstore in Seattle and has a great magazine section. It recently relocated from the Pioneer Square neighborhood and we couldn't be happier!
Stop 3. Totokaelo, let the shopping begin!
Stop 4. Oddfellows Cafe
The perfect place to recharge for more shopping. A glass of wine, cheese plate, and pomme frites please, as you sit outside and people watch from a sidewalk table. (we also like Lost Lake Lounge, just down the block).
Stop 5. Totokaelo, let the shopping continue!
Because who doesn't like ice cream and this place is the best! (we also love Bluebird Ice Cream over on Pike).
Stop 7. Totokaelo, oh do we have to leave, are you really closing?!
Totokaelo is located at 1523 10th avenue Seattle Washington 98122 in the beautiful Pacific Northwest of the United States. Store Hours are Monday to Thursday 11a-7p, Friday and Saturday 11am-8pm and Sunday 11am to 6pm. Enjoy your visit!
