With this pair, you can spare yourself the time wondering if shorts are too casual to head out to a lounge. Pair these shorts with a fun top, heels, and spiky jewelry, and you will rock this amazing pair of shorts. The Parker shorts are now available at all Blush locations, as well as on our website…snag your pair now!
Look Abs-olutely Gorgeous in the Breeze dress
Posted on July 26, 2013.
With the hot sun beating down on us, summer is definitely the best time to show a little more skin than usual. This year’s peek-a-boo trend has us ladies showing off unique parts of the body, making for very flattering “peeks,” switching it up from the predictable cleavage and legs. This week at Blush, we have a gorgeous long dress that gives just a tease of the sides of your midriff. Available in both black and heather, the Breeze dress has the appearance of a crop top layered over a long dress. The crop top leaves the sides of your abs exposed, so you can show off all of the crunches you’ve been doing! The neckline is also fun, with the actual dress tying halter-style at the neck, while the crop top has a scoop neck. Simple yet soo stylish, this one is a must-have!

It’s late July, and if you’re like us, you’re looking for an extra sexy twist on your wardrobe to finish the summer off in. In this batch of weekly arrivals, we have just what you’ve been looking for! The Dolores dress looks good for any occasion, and comes in your choice of solid red, blue, heather, or black. This long dress comfortably hugs every curve on your body. It looks amazing from the front, but the very low scoop in the back is what really makes this piece sizzle. The Dolores dress looks dazzling on its own, but feel free to upgrade it with fun accessories. Whether you want to leave your other half speechless or just be the envy of every girl in the room, this backless dress is calling your name.
Summer’s Prettiest Romper
Posted on July 19, 2013.
Possibly the cutest romper we’ve gotten in all summer, new arrival Margarita romper is a charmer in every way. This pink, white, and blue print romper features a funky print in light, summery colors. This beauty also has pockets, so feel free to leave your purse behind! Other great details on this super-flattering piece include a halter tie at the neck, buttons along the front, and gorgeous ruffle detail around top (which subtly enhances the bust!). So when we say this is THE summer romper, trust us, it’s no exaggeration. Pair with a metallic wedge and bangles or sandals and a cute side-braid in your hair. Happy summer!
Sexy and Sweet in a Unique Maxi Dress
Posted on July 17, 2013.
This week at Blush, a very special piece arrived. The Nicolina maxi dress is a gorgeous, unique take on the maxi dress craze, and offers you print and solid in one dress, so you can fashionably enjoy the best of both worlds. The top half is solid white and corset-style, complete with cups and a deep V at the bust (if you’re looking for a boost, this dress is great). Underneath the cups, there is light crochet detailing. The empire waist leads into the bottom, which is a flowy maxi skirt in a pretty shade of blue with white print on top. The fun part about this dress is that it looks like it could be two different pieces! This dress is lovely for enjoying summer drinks at an outdoor bar, or strolling along the beach at sunset.
White Fringe is so summer!
Posted on July 12, 2013.
Nothing screams summer 2013 like light, gauzy white fabrics with fabulous fringe detail. Made out of 100% cotton, the Jones Jacket totally picks up on this trend while staying au naturale. This piece is amazing because you can throw it over any summer outfit for a casual yet stylish look. Do the all-white outfit thing, layer it over your swimsuit, or throw it on over jean shorts and a tank when the AC is pumping (and during a Miami summer, when is the AC not pumping?). This cover up will give any outfit a touch of boho-chic, with its crochet detail and dangly fringe.
