There are a lot of ways to practice self-care. For some (including myself), lighting a nice candle, relaxing with a face mask, and watching Netflix is one form. For countless women (also including myself), the main form involves shopping and treating yourself to a little something special. And can you get any more special than a personalized handbag? Handbags, like shoes, are one of my weaknesses. A beautiful, well-constructed bag that I can wear everyday is more valuable to me than jewelry, sunglasses, and sometimes even a great-fitting pair of jeans. So finding a bag that I can personalize and make my own is not only functional, but is also a creative expression and a fun way to treat myself. Which brings me to The Daily Edited; the Sydney based line offers a range of well-made, beautiful, classic bags in different colors that don't break the bank (even their nicest leather totes top out around $320). And the best part? You can customize them! I recently received three beautiful bags from them, each monogrammed with a different set of initials (the one above says "The ELA," which stands for this blog's name). You can even pick the font, font size, and monogram color. The options are truly endless, making them the perfect gift to yourself or even friends, family, and significant others.Read More

While I usually think furs and glitter and velvet for the holiday season, LA's sunny December is leading me in a different direction when it comes to my party attire. For those casual holiday season get-togethers, I've been leaning towards cooler pieces with trendier details, like this ruffled star print wrap dress from Zaful. Their fun, affordable pieces are perfect for building your winter wardrobe and treating yourself to some upbeat holiday outfits. I'm currently loving this boxy checked coat as a topper for all my outfits this season, from the more casual wrap dress to a black glitzy cocktail dress.
