Shop Local Designer: Ela Handbags Sample SaleI am on a shopping kick lately. Actually I think I would blame the good sales going on these days. And a couple weeks back I went to the Ela Handbags sample sale to add some new bags to my wardrobe.
For those of you who don't know, Ela, co-founded by Ela Kowalewska and Martin Aldorsson, is a Swedish/Canadian handbags and accessories brand. The T.O. duo wants to create a line of accessories that embody the basis of humble luxury. All their handbags are crafted in Spain with high quality Italian materials.
When I first walked into the sale, I was already overwhelmed by the collection. I did not expect there are so many choices available, and the prices are unbeatable.
|So many choices... but they were gone so fast!|
Bucket - $45 (anything you can find in the bucket)
Editor's Pouch - $80
M.I.L.C.K. Clutch - $100
Chibi Lady & Fur - $150
Large Bags - $200
I had my eyes on their M.I.L.C.K. Clutch before I went into the sample sale. If memory serves me correctly, there were over 20 different things for you to choose from. So I went a little crazy, and here's a pic of some of the things I grabbed to decide:
|In hindsight, so much red and pink lol|
I ended up getting Chibi Lady Bag in Red Stud, M.I.L.C.K. Clutch in Sand Stud and M.I.L.C.K. Clutch in Hot Pink Suede for myself. I also picked up the Lardy Bag in Red Stud for Joyce and M.I.L.C.K. Clutch in Purple for Emily!

I also got the chance to have a quick chat with Ela and Martin, who both are so so sweet and helpful. And can you believe how good look they both are, seriously, what a power cute couple!
