Hello, Poketo

Um, new year's resolutions are meant to be broken, right? One of my resolutions this year was (er, is) to blog at least once a week. It was pretty easy to keep that up, but I must admit I've lost some steam in recent days weeks. As much as I'd like to have consistent posts, the one blogging rule I have for myself is to only post things that excite me. Quality over quantity, right? (This doesn't always hold true for me when it comes to food, though. I blame my buffet-loving dad. I just can't get down with pretentious portions...) 

My rule trumped my resolution, but I'm back to share some exciting news. I got a job with Poketo! They're opening their very first brick-and-mortar store in the downtown arts district, right around the corner from Wurstk├╝che. I've been following them for so long, it's cool to say that I work with them now! I guess today was my first official day on the job. Highlight of the day? Accompanying my boss on a fun little meeting at Clare Vivier's Echo Park studio. FINE leather goodz, folks. 

Hopefully I'll gain some midyear momentum so I can post more frequently on this thing. But in the indefinite meanwhile, be sure to check out the Poketo store. Soft opening is happening this Saturday, June 23, from 11-7. Address is 820 East 3rd Street. The store looks amazing and there are many goods to be bought!


  1. Congratulations!! That's so awesome! I bought more than I really should have when the Poketo for Target collection came out (an umbrella, wallet, ginormous tote...) so that's exciting to hear about the new store, too. Wish I could check out the opening (sadly out of town this w/e). Hope you do decide to write more, love reading your blog!

    1. I realized I had the date wrong! They actually soft opened last Saturday, but the store is open now. You should definitely check it out though! Considering you're already a fan, I know you can do some damage. ;) I already have a wish list that just keeps growing...

      I'll keep you posted on any grand opening festivities, though! And thank you! A big, resounding "likewise" to your last sentence.

  2. Congrats on the new gig boo! Cannot wait to swing by the shop and check it out. BTW, it would be a great gem for me to review for Citysearch (one of my newer gigs). xo NJ
