Meet The Models

Here at For Elyse we are constantly getting new arrivals to add to the store and our online shop. We have four lovely models who spend time in the store every week showing off those new looks with our photographer Tyler Ranalla shooting the photos. If you shop on our online store or follow us on our social media handles you will for sure of seen these ladies! They represent the FE girl style and we wanted to show you why we love them so much!


Our 22 year old blonde babe is from Northern California and a current senior at Chico State. Kelsey said her favorite part about modeling for For Elyse is, "The girls! The other models are so sweet and we always have a great time at work. For Elyse has the cutest clothes and I love getting to wear the outfits put together by our stylist, Kelly!" We love Kelsey's effortlessly cool vibe and sweet laugh.


Our second model is a spunky 21 year old from Central California. Fun Fact: Caelin is our only brunette model! She is a current senior at Chico State and works in our marketing department when she isn't modeling. Caelin said her favorite part about modeling for For Elyse is, "I love getting the first look at For Elyse's new arrivals! We get the cutest outfits styled for us by Kelly and just to have fun for the entirety of our shoots with Tyler and the rest of the girls!" We love Caelin's sweet smile and positive attitude!


Our third stunner is Shaye, a 19 year old from the Bay Area. Shaye works as a stylist in the Chico For Elyse store and knows how to pick out the cutest outfits for you. The next time you're in make sure to say "Hi!" Shaye says her favorite part about modeling for For Elyse is, "Having the ability to try on all the products that will be put onto the floor. Since I sell the clothes I love being able to tell customers exactly how something fits and looks from first hand experience." We love Shaye's sweet girl next door looks and her jokes on set. (Trust us they are hilarious!)


Our fourth model gorgeous gal is Lauren. This Southern Californian cutie is a 20 year old Junior at Chico State. Lauren is our newest model and we can't get enough of her! Lauren says her favorite part of modeling for For Elyse is, "I've always loved fashion, so it's great to be able to work with a fashion brand that matches so closely to my own personal style."

For Elyse Blogger Roundup!

This week we've been really impressed with all the darling outfits the fashion bloggers we work with have been putting together. In honor of their styling skills, today we're doing a roundup of all our favorite outfit posts from the last week!

Blogger Sylvia in Songbird Dress

Worth the Wait Dress

Katie Miller of Freedom of Wardrobe has been one of our favorite bloggers for a while now, and we just love how she styled this LWD from Mystic. The moto-inspired jacket gives the look a bit of edge, while the playful floral heels soften it and make it a great day-to-night pick!

Love Wildly Free Tunic

Lisa Prang of LMP Collections has a knack for taking a classic piece and styling it in a way that breathes new life into the overall look. We love the look of these deconstructed boyfriend jeans with messenger bag and our Love Wildly Free Tunic.

Songbird Dress Off the Shoulder

Last (but certainly not least), we adore this look styled by Sylvia of Spanish Muse, featuring our Songbird Dress. Belting this dress and adding some classic sunnies takes this dress from festival to ultra-wearable, and love it! Keep those amazing looks coming, ladies! Which is  your favorite look? Tell us below in the comments!

Cowboy Take Me Away Top and High Waisted Shorts

We hope you're having a wonderful season so far, and even if the summer solstice hasn't officially happened yet, we're still loving this warmer weather! Don't forget to stay hydrated in the summer sun, and to check our New Arrivals feed often as we're updating it with new products weekly!

Outfit Of The Week: New Arrivals!

With all the work we've been putting into getting our new site up and running, we've hardly had a moment to stop and catch our breath! We're loving the look of it though, and the ease of uploading products means less wait time before some of our favorite new pieces become available online. With that in mind, this week we thought we'd take you through some of our favorite picks from the New Arrivals feed. Enjoy!

Denim jacket and Sweet Day Dreamer dress

You might notice this week that the Jogger Denim Jacket features heavily, and that's because we love it! It's nice to have a staple piece, and a classic denim jacket is a great place to start. The Jogger Jacket comes in a versatile dark wash and has enough stretch for comfort, but is still structured enough to be a great outfit topper.

Printed flowy pants and Beyond the Clouds Top

That's all from us this week, we hope you enjoyed our picks for best new arrivals! Are you wanting us to cover a particular topic on the blog? Tell us in the comments below!
