Mutual Admiration: Irene Kim of Irenekly
A warm thank you to Irene Kim of Irenekly for her thoughtful feature of Coclico this past Earth Day. We discovered Ireneky on Instagram and were soon elbow deep in her beautiful blog. An Oakland based photographer and designer with a knack for words, Irene is the full package. And we will be following her every post with pleasure.

At Coclico, we believe that luxury isn't the ability to purchase endlessly, but the privilege of choosing wisely.

I’m re-evaluating my privilege and what luxury actually is when it comes to Earth Day, shifting my ideas of how I can contribute to the health of the environment. From big decisions like purchasing a car to smaller decisions like purchasing shoes, carrying them through with intention and awareness of their environmental impact is easier said that done. But I can research what’s in my ability to choose, and this Earth Day I’d like to bring more integrity into what and how I consume products.

Whether that means buying less stuff overall (God knows my closet doesn’t need any more), getting rid of stuff, or to not buy “stuff” at all and invest in quality pieces, I hope to take my privilege to choose seriously and wisely.
