Our Story


 

Imagine a closet stored with all your favorite pieces: classic, timeless, trendy, vintage, feminine, global, and one-of-a-kind. Every piece is hand-felt, selected, and adorned. Some pieces have travelled over 6,000 miles to land in your hands. This is the revelation we envisioned while curating The Selected shop.
We are entrepreneurial sisters based in Los Angeles, California with a passion for effortless style and decorative appeal. We strive for perfectly hand-selected pieces that we love, chosen with care and a heightened awareness of current fashion trends. From one sister to another, we invite you to explore the magnificent pieces of The Selected.

F.A.Q.

Q: How did the name 'The Selected' come to be?
A: To 'select' means to 'carefully choose as being the best or most suitable.' This terminology is our motto not only for our clothes, but our entire lifestyle, too. We believe that we are selected beings, called to live out a special purpose. We live out our dreams by pursuing our passions in operating 'The Selected' shop.
Q: What makes The Selected unique from other brands?
A: The Selected is a hand-picked shop, with each item carefully chosen to be displayed on our site. We do not compromise on clothing quality or style, and we make sure we love our pieces before the public ever sees it.
Q: Where do you ship from?
A: We ship from Los Angeles!
Q: Why are there limited size options for certain products?
A: Our products are selected individually (piece by piece) and often a dead-stock item, which means we often carry a limited quantity. Other pieces are either rare, vintage, or international souvenirs that we find uniquely in our travels.
Q: Do you plan to carry menswear?
A: Yes! We are currently in the works of curating our one-of-a-kind men's collection. Follow us on Instagram (@shoptheselected), or sign up for our e-mail newsletter to get updates!
