Ella is a movement. We are a community of women unified by one true love - high fashion.
We connect women with each other through a common love of fashion. Fashion that may be found in our shop or in each other’s closets.
We learned from users of our app that meeting up to try things on was a bit awkward and sometimes logistically difficult to coordinate.
By opening a physical location can happily offer an elevated shopping experience with proper fitting rooms and the ability to accept all forms of payment, just like with regular shopping! This eases the pain of needing to coordinate your schedules and eliminates the need for trying things on in coffee shop washrooms!
Remember that time in 2014 when you tried to work your way back into our closets but were met with insurmountable rejection? Didn't you learn anything from that?

It is a question of distressed denim or a-line prints. Vintage peter pan collars or classic plaids. Bloodstones or cowgirls. Washboard or acoustic guitar. These are the important differentiators to consider.
If you think like me when you pack, this article is for you. I dove deep to come up with the following 6 tips that you can implement to cut down on your packing volume, and maximize your wardrobe potential, and best of all, fit it all into a knapsack. Yes, I did just say knapsack.
The internet of things, today is so much to contend with. Usually, if I tell you I didn't receive the message you sent me, it's because I didn't. Or I did, but it was followed so closely behind with some other form of internet-interruption that it left my brain faster than a Stella McCartney at a handbag sale.
Usually about 30 minutes before my company arrives I spin around my house like a toupee in a windstorm until everything is conceivably in place. Go ahead, marvel at my clear countertops, organized bookshelves and clutterless sitting room. But if a door, drawer or cupboard is closed, for the love of Prince don't open it!
