one of my recent goals has been to document more of my favorite shops and restaurants. there is an enormous amount of cool places to go in LA so I have been bringing kimberly around with me to shoot them for the blog! (she also shot this flea market post)

this week we hit up the new poketo store in downtown LA! ted & angie are actually my next door neighbors so when they told me they were opening up a store in the neighborhood (here is their online shop) i rushed over there to check it out.

poketo is now my go-to gift stop. need a little gift for a friend’s birthday? or a house warming gift? here’s the place. and major cool points on the decor in there, huh? now i want a room in my house made out of plywood.

my boyfriend rode his bike over to say hello during the shoot. he looks quite athletic here!

i bought the clutch with the baby triangles on it for my assistant’s birthday. just LOOK at how many cool ones are on the falcon wright website!

and claire vivier! your clutches kill me. perfect color choices on those neon stripes.

they have a little section of bathroom items like striped towels, nice soaps and containers. everything they have is high quality, and they have edited it down so nicely. i loved seeing SO many of the items that I have chosen for our past blogshops in there! it made me feel like i was doing somethin right!

my favorite section there is the glassware and little planters. so much charm!

i bought this A-frame succulent planter below for our new house. I have already picked the perfect window for it.

hopefully you enjoyed your little tour of the poketo shop! make sure to stop by and pick up a little treasure for yourself.
