Grammy's 2016: What to Expect!

The 2016 Grammy Awards are just around the corner and we couldn't be more excited to watch! With every great award show comes memorable moments and here's what we are mostly looking forward to seeing:

1. Taylor Swift Opening The Show

Our ultimate crush is fresh off her 1989 Tour and the queen of pop is going to absolutely slay. We couldn't think of a better person to open this show! 

2. Lady Gaga Honoring David Bowie

Lady Gaga Grammys 2015

David Bowie's heartbreaking passing from cancer in late January will be honored by Lady Gaga during the Grammy's this year. She wowed everyone with her rendition of the National Anthem during Superbowl 50 and we know that this performance too will jerk some tears. 

3. Adele

Since her album we can't get enough of her. We know that this performance will be absolutely breathtaking (When are her performances not, though?!) We predict that she will be taking home quite a few Grammy's this year!

4. EDM hitting the Grammy Stage

Skrillex and Diplo

Like an absolute pop trifecta Justin Bieber, Skrillex, and Diplo brought EDM to a whole new group of listeners. Where R U Now by Justing Bieber featuring Jack U soared to the top of the charts and now for the first time EDM will be heard on the Grammy Stage. We can't wait to hear this trio together and see what they come out with. 


The Grammy's this year are for sure going to be one of the best. We can't wait to see what the celeb's hit the Red Carpet in. Stay tuned for our favorites outfits!

What's In Our Bag?

The "What's In My Bag" tag has been popular on social media and YouTube for a few years now, and we are still obsessed! There's something so exciting about seeing the hidden gems and treasures people carry with them on a daily basis. Today, we're giving you an exclusive peak into our model Caelin's bag!

"I try to keep what's in my bag very minimal, and only carry the essentials! My eyes are pretty sensitive, so I always reach for these gold sunglasses, plus the reflective lens is super cute and doubles as a mirror.

I also like to carry a mini roll on perfume, just in case I need a bit of a pick me up - this one from The Beehive smells delicious!

Chapstick, mints, and a hair clip are no brainers. I keep these in my purse in case of a bad hair day, or if I need to freshen up my smile.

Lastly, I always carry coconut oil! This oil is soo versitle. I use it as a hand cream, lip gloss, and moisturizer! It's my trusty sidekick and I never leave home without it."

The Bachelor: Obsessed with Becca Tilley's style!

It's Bachelor Monday! Everyone's guilty pleasure is back for another episode. 

Whether you love it, hate it, or hate to love it, The Bachelor is a hot topic right now. The super hottie Ben Higgins from Indiana is vying for love from women from all over the country that have moved in to try and win his heart (and that rock of an engagement ring at the end, I mean let's be real!) 

If you aren't keeping up with The Bachelor let me tell you - besides these ladies being so dang entertaining these ladies have STYLE. Those rose ceremony dresses and gowns are bangin'. They live in a super posh mansion in the Los Angeles hills and the outfits these girls wear when they are just hanging out to their dates with Ben are a-ma-zing! I'm particularly obsessed with Becca Tilley. She's the runner up from farmer Chris Sole's season and she was my favorite back then too. She's back to try her luck with Ben! (Fingers crossed for her!) She's sweet, smart, and sassy. Everything a lady should be! I'm #TeamBecca and I want to raid her closet immediately. 

Here's some of my favorite Becca Tilley looks: 

Becca Tilley Top

This look is so perfect. It could be worn to work and to happy hour after. I'm obsessed.

This look reminds us of our: Pocket Full of Kisses Top!

Becca Tilley Stripes

This striped dress paired with booties is everything. We love how Becca so seamlessly puts together these outfits! #goals

This outfit reminds us of our: Walk The Line Dress, and our Wine Not Hat!

Becca just has this effortlessly cool vibe to her. She lives in San Diego and we can totally imagine her rocking this outfit to the beach!

Get Becca's style with our Never Feelin Blue Top!

Who is your Bachelor favorite? Who's closet are you dying to raid from the store? Let us know in the comments below!

73rd Golden Globes: Our Fav Looks

Brie Larson and Rosie Huntington absolutely killed it with the golden, nude tones this year.

We loved everything about Rosie Huntington- Whiteley’s look! Her golden waves complimented her gorgeous gold Versace dress. With her gown sweeping the floor she left people in aw.

Brie Lawson not only rocked this dress by Calvin Klein, but took home a win for Best Actress!

When Zendaya came out onto the red carpet we had to take a double look! She held herself with elegance and maturity in her stunning plunging tiered brocade Marchesa gown. You never would have guessed she is a Disney channel star!


The majority of people can’t pull off a mustard yellow, but Jennifer Lopez absolutely killed it in this dress. This color complemented her skin tone and left her glowing. Boldness done right.

Louise Roe did just about everything right from head to toe. From hair to the dress, and shoes her look was to die for. This Monique Lhuillier gown fit her perfectly! With a jaw-dropping cut out and slit this dress was killer.

The question is when does Jennifer Lawrence not kill it? With her golden globe award and flattering red dress from Dior she was the highlight of the night!

Blogger Feature: Green Tea With A Hint Of Me

This week we are featuring guest blogger Jennifer Palhegyi of Green Tea With A Hint Of Me We fell in love with Jennifer's sweet and classic FE girl style. After a few conversations with her we decided to send her Lush's Good For You dress. Here is what Jennifer had to say about For Elyse:

"For Elyse is one of my GO TO stores in Chico. It's hard coming from the Bay Area to a small town like Chico. The malls just aren't the same but For Elyse NEVER disappoints. I always find what I'm looking for plus extra! It's like when you go to Target & rationalize a reason to buy the entire store by the time you leave ha ha! That's what For Elyse does to me! ALSO, If you aren't from Chico, CA it's okay! They recently opened a website this year where you can find all of the amazing products featured in this look! I'm absolutely obsessed with this dress! It's the perfect mix of classy and sexy in one, fits amazingly and was the most comfortable dress I've worn in awhile! It was exactly what I needed to wear when I hit the dance floor all night!"

Here are some pictures of Jennifer rocking our dress

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!
