Elliegance & Grace is a source of fashion, beauty and lifestyle inspiration for the average college girl. We hope this blog helps you to embrace your personal style and encourages you to live everyday confidently & stylishly!
On December 9th, 2015 at 1:00pm, Ellie decided to Facebook message Grace hoping to find a roommate for her freshman year of college. Little did she know the impact that message would have on each other’s lives. We immediately bonded over our love for fashion and knew we would be perfect roomates. Most of the time in our tiny dorm room, at Texas Christian University, we became distracted by our favorite fashion bloggers and everything related. We are both Fashion Merchandising majors and think it is acceptable to online shop during our classes because it’s “fashion.” As we approached the end of the best freshman year ever, we wanted to create a creative way to stay connected to each other since we won’t be living together next year. We will both be living in different sorority houses. Due to our borderline stalk-ish obsession with fashion bloggers, we decided this would be the perfect way!
I was born and raised in suburban Minnesota but always knew I belonged in the South. I love making people laugh and re-watching my favorite shows on Netflix (I’ve watched Grey’s Anatomy 11 times….). Like any girl, my style is always changing but the best way to put it into words would be preppy with a southern flare. My long arms and legs have giving me the title “preying mantis” and I’m a coconut oil enthusiast!
I’ve always known exactly what I want: to go to TCU and major in fashion merchandising. I was born with a love for clothes, travel, concerts, and sugar! I grew up in Oklahoma City (Go Thunder) and my family has always been the biggest part of my life. I get excited about absolutely everything and love encouraging others. You can always catch me facetiming and laughing at almost anything (hence why we’re friends). My style is best described as fun and feminine.
