We’ve been neglecting the male readers, so today’s feature focuses on Toronto shop Nomad, which stocks plenty of labels like Acne, Nom de Guerre, Opening Ceremony, APC, Common Projects and many others. The shop is set up on a blog, so you search for available products from a ‘Category’ dropdown and I believe you have to call or email them to purchase, but they do list the prices of several of their items. It would be very nice if they expanded their online offerings and set up an actual shopping cart because they appear to have quite a nice selection!
I wore the above yesterday. I’ve been wearing the rain jacket nonstop, not just because it’s been so rainy and cool, but because it goes with everything!

While I’ve watched Seattle boutique, Impulse, for a few years now I’ve never featured them as they originally just had a blog that wasn’t incredibly easy to shop and then they locked their items behind membership at newly opened sister store Totokaelo.
I finally became a member a month or so ago but was excited to receive an email earlier this week stating that they were now opening the shop up to everyone. I do like the community aspect of the site, as the shop’s staff, other members, and even the owner will respond quickly to any questions anyone has about any of the items. It’s a smart idea to sign up to join because it’s obviously incredibly helpful to figure out if an item will work for you prior to purchasing it. I think it was a good move though, to open the site up for the casual viewer/shopper.
They have a fabulous selection of cult and independent designers and their customer service is stellar. I ordered an item a few weeks back and it came beautifully wrapped with a hand written note on gorgeous letterpress stationery. If you’re looking for your favourite indies Totokaelo is an excellent place to start.
