Killer Fashion at Coachella
Posted on April 18, 2018.
As all the surprises from Coachella’s first weekend sink in and fans get ready for weekend two, we thought we’d take a moment to reflect on some fashion moments from last weekend that we just can’t get enough of. Here’s our rundown of must-see trends from Coachella:
-As we’re sure you’ve heard by now, Beyonce absolutely blew away the crowd with her headlining performance, which included bringing out Jay-Z, her sister Solange, and reuniting with Destiny’s Child (finally!). The trend we’re stuck on from Bey’s performance is the camo-print outfits worn onstage by her and Destiny’s Child cohorts, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. Love! Their luxe camo was covered in crystals, but was definitely a throwback to trends past and the 90s in general.
-Riri, as usual, slayed. This time, in all white denim by Chrome Hearts. She was definitely throwing out 60s vibes, tying her shirt in a middle knot and letting the sleeves fall just past her shoulders. Even the flip at the end of her hair and her bright blue eyeshadow were nods to an era past. Leave it to Rihanna to go there, and she absolutely killed it. Mind you, this was one of many outfits she wore to the first weekend of Coachella. What will she wear to the second weekend? We can’t wait to find out!
-Halsey wore baby pink to a Coachella pool party in the best possible way: in the form of a cute bra top and a ruched mini skirt, complete with a little ruffle at the bottom. Her baby pink glasses and fringey necklace completed the look and locked in the retro, desert vibes of her outfit. Yep, just like that, she put together the perfect Coachella look, and we love!

Packing Lunch, Veggie Style
Posted on April 16, 2018.
You’re at work, you’re looking for an easy to make, easy to pack lunch, and you want it to be healthy. What to do? Make a veggie sandwich! Packed with the right veggies, these sandwiches can be more filling (and way more delicious) than you’d ever imagine. Don’t believe us? Try out any of our three latest lunch obsessions:
-Rainbow Vegetable Sandwich – Think brightly colored veggies, like red and yellow peppers, onions, cucumbers, and lettuce. Voila, you have the most colorful lunch out of anyone at your job. Lather on a spread of your choice for an extra dose of mmm.
-Ultimate Vegetable Sandwich – The idea here is to pack on as many veggies as humanly possible. That’s right, ALL the veggies. Tomatoes, avocados, sprouts, lettuce, cabbage, carrots, cucumbers... just keep stacking and layering veggies for the ultimate effect.
-Veggie & Hummus Sandwich – Hummus pairs well with just about any vegetable, but especially with cucumbers, carrots, and sprouts. This sandwich is probably the easiest transition into the world of veggie sandwiches, because who doesn’t love hummus?
Happy lunching! :)

While mixing and matching contrasting pieces is fun, it’s also nice to wear a complete set as an outfit. Two pieces made for each other. When you’re wearing a set, your look can pretty much do no wrong. This is why we are SO excited to feature some of our favorite trending sets at Blush – here are a few of our absolute top picks:
-Our V-Neck Cami + Flowy Short are a match made in paradise! While the cami features self-tie straps and a frayed hem, the flowy shorts have a fun smocked waist. This peach-colored pair are a dynamic duo and make a great weekend look.
-The Smock Off The Shoulder Top + Smock High Waisted Skirt are all about texture, texture, and more texture. Both in a rainbow-colored smocked fabric and ruffle hems, there’s just a hint of skin at the tummy and with the off-the-shoulder top. This pair is all about fun!
-The Twist Crop Top + Ruffle Shorts feature a dramatic crop top twisted at the center and exaggerated ruffles at the sleeves, and matching high-waisted shorts with ruffle hems. Black is always in style, but never boring with all these ruffles in the mix!
So go ahead and set yourself up with the perfect look by snagging one of our Blush sets today!
Season of the Stripes
Posted on March 29, 2018.
Spring is in the air (at least here in Miami), and although we’re obvi excited to break out our florals, we’re even more excited for understated yet always trendy stripes. We have lots of this simply stylish print in stock; here are a couple of our favorite ways to wear this print for spring:
-Our Strapless Top + Slit Wide Leg Pants come in the form of a flowy tube top with button-down detailing, and an elastic waist pant with a dramatic slit down each of the wide-cut legs, both in a blue & white striped print that are part nautical, part fabulous.
-Not your mother’s stripes, our Slit Leg Jumper is a trendy black and white stripe print, and features a dramatic V-neck and possibly even more dramatic slit along the leg. This one isn’t for the faint of heart!
-Our Front Knot Tank features self-tie straps, a sweetheart neckline, and a romantic pink stripe print. We’re loving the feminine silhouette against the simple print, and we’re pairing this top with everything from jeans to miniskirts to our matching-print Wrap Pants.
-Our Lace-Up Romper is another gem. This long-sleeve romper laces up along the front and comes in a delicate rose-pink stripe print. The subtle stripe print pairs perfectly with the soft lines of the romper. Absolutely perfect for a date night.
All of these looks are currently available at Blush! Let us know your favorite way to wear your stripes!
Spring Nail Trends
Posted on March 13, 2018.
As they say, March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a mouse. Well, we are more than anything hoping that it comes in like winter, and leaves like spring. Yep, spring is on the horizon, and we couldn’t be more ready for sunshine, cute spring fashions, and of course, brand new beauty trends! We came across some nail designs that are so fresh for spring, and that we’re absolutely obsessed with, and of course, we’d like to share these looks with you:
-For a really unique look, try a circle in the middle of a pop of color, all on your nails! Paint your nails a fresh spring color, like a bold peach or a sunflower yellow. Take a striping brush and make a circular shape with white nail polish, right in the middle of your nail. Boom! You have the most unique nails out of all of your friends, by a long shot.
-Try a cool gradient look in two colors that can kinda blend into each other for a really fun look. Paint the top third of your nail the first color, and the bottom third the second color. In a small dish, mix the two colors with some base coat, and fill in the middle section of the nail with that mixture. Cover the entire nail in a top coat. Last step? Flaunt your nails!
-Try a fun take on a French manicure by painting some colored stripes on the tips of the nails. Paint your nails clear, then use tape to establish straight lines and paint in with the colors of your choice (the bolder, the better!). Tip: wait until one line dries before putting tape over it to paint the next line. Just like that, you have the freshest French manicure anyone’s ever seen!
Blush's Best Dressed At The Oscars
Posted on March 8, 2018.
Yass! Awards season continues, with none other than the Academy Awards taking place this past Sunday. And while we were definitely excited to see the big winners of the evening, we also had our own winners chosen… for their amazing fashion choices, of course! Here are our picks:
-Yes, we love men’s fashion too! “Get Out” star Daniel Kaluuya stunned in a bronze velvet blazer by Brunello Cuchinelli. A classic bow-tie and trousers supported his get-up, but some say the magic of Daniel’s look was in his face. He wore Fenty Beauty (the makeup line by Rihanna that recently took the world by storm) foundation, which left a subtle glow that, when paired with his perfect smile, definitely gets him the gold for best face of the night.
-Usual suspect Zendaya blew us all away with the sheer perfection of her look. She wore a Giambattista Valli Couture chocolate colored chiffon gown. Some features of her dress were an asymmetrical neckline, and one flowy sleeve. She looked like a goddess! Between her exposed shoulders and beautiful jewelry, she absolutely killed it. We see you, Zendaya!
-The beautiful Margot Robbie left us speechless in a Chanel Haute Couture gown, designed by none other than Karl Lagerfeld himself. And this gown pulled all the stops (and took over 600 hours to make). But looking at Robbie on Oscar night clearly made it all worth it. This form-fitting white column dress featured a corset bodice with draped bands of crystal tubes accenting the front of her dress, as well as her shoulders. Add in Robbie’s signature smile, and you have an epic Oscars look on your hands. Bravo, Margot!
Superbowl Standout: Justin Timberlake Returns
Posted on February 8, 2018.
Superbowl 2018 was best of the best in commercials, football, and of course, a halftime show we couldn’t take our eyes off of. Yep, Justin Timberlake was back on the halftime stage (his last appearance at the Superbowl was somewhat defined by Janet Jackson’s infamous “wardrobe malfunction”), showering us with his greatest hits as well as brand new music from his upcoming album. Oh, and he even managed to pay tribute to Prince, a Minneapolis native, in a stand-out moment from his show.
While the Patriots and the Eagles took a break from their big game, Justin took the stage in camouflage, in tune to market his upcoming album, “Man of the Woods.” He graced us with his latest single, “Filthy,” and then went right into his old hits, including “Senorita,” “Cry Me A River,” and “Sexy Back,” among others. This was one of the highlights of his performance, as we all love a good JT throwback.
The other glorious moment of his show was his Prince tribute. A purple projection of Prince appeared behind Justin while he sang Prince hits “I Would Die For You” and “Until The End Of Time.” Buildings surrounding the stadium were lit up in purple light in tribute to one of the most magical artists of our lifetime.
Kylie’s Sweet Surprise
Posted on February 7, 2018.
Just when you thought the Kardashian/Jenner clan was truly an open book, with their lives open and on display, Kylie comes clean about a 9 month secret that she kept! Yes, the rumors were true… Ky was out of the public spotlight while tending to her pregnancy, finally giving birth on February 1st to her first child, Stormi (love the name!). She explained in an Instagram post that she “needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress-free, and healthy way” she knew how.
Of course, Kylie filled us in on the time she was out of the spotlight, releasing a video to announce both her pregnancy and the birth of baby girl Stormi. The video was really cute footage of her baby shower, featuring her friends’ reactions to Kylie’s pregnancy news, and little snippets in the life of pregnant Kylie, including super cute moments with her boyfriend/father to her child, Travis Scott. For true KUWTK fans, this video was life!
All we have to say is, we knew it. Why else would she have missed the Kardashian Christmas portrait? This also explains the selfie queen’s absence from Instagram. Mystery solved! Congratulations to Kylie and Travis on their beautiful baby girl!
Calling All Capricorns: This Is Your Year
Posted on January 12, 2018.
Okay, Capricorn ladies, it’s currently your time to shine! While birthday celebrations may currently be underway, we wanted to help shine a little light on the new year to come, and what 2018 holds for your sign.
Get ready, because this year is all about change! While this may be a little scary, just remember that the only constant is change, and that if you face the changes ahead of you head on, you have lots of growth to look forward to. In particular, the coming year will be bringing you new opportunities. Scratch that – the year won’t actually be bringing you anything. You’ll be facing new opportunities thanks to the hard work you’ve consistently put in over the past year. Ever the independent sign, you’ll be tempted to capitalize on these opportunities by yourself, but this year, perhaps the greatest change of all that you’ll face is that you’ll have to rely on friends and contacts to make true progress. Trust that the network of people in your life have got your back, and you’ll be able to do much more than you ever would be able to do going at it alone.
That said, this is the year to get it! Go for that new job! Make that move across the country! This is the year to really make it count, as the stars are aligned in your favor. Get it, girl!
#TimesUp at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards
Posted on January 10, 2018.
This year’s Golden Globe Awards packed a bit more substance than picking our best dressed celebrities of the evening. 2018’s Golden Globes, which aired on Sunday night, served a purpose. The “#MeToo” movement, which began in an attempt to raise awareness of sexual assault and harassment against women, struck particularly close to home for the entertainment industry in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Sunday’s awards show was a culmination of the movement and the responsibility Hollywood feels to represent all industries in clapping back at sexual violence towards women with its own hashtag, #TimesUp.
All but three attendees wore black to this year’s awards. Yep, the stars left behind their usual ravishing reds and shimmering golds for a more solemn black to symbolize unity within their movement. That isn’t to say the fashion wasn’t fabulous; these were some of the hottest black dresses we have ever seen! Kendall Jenner absolutely killed it in her Giambattista Valli haute couture gown, which had a massive, fun train. Who said dressing for a cause can’t be super stylish?
Highlights from the evening include many great speeches by some of our Hollywood favorites. However, no speech struck a chord as powerful as that of Oprah’s, which brought everyone in the room to their feet in thunderous applause. It was so powerful, in fact, that people are now urging her to run for President in 2020! She definitely let the world know that time is up for women to be treated as second class citizens.
It’s truly incredible that Hollywood rose to the challenge of facing a societal problem that has gone on for way too long. Much love to our favorite actresses (and actors) who made this a night to remember by fighting for such an important cause!
