Summer Leather: The Trend Continues (And This One’s Vegan!)
Posted on August 30, 2013.
Earlier this summer, we posted on how summer leather, an unexpected trend, was a sign that designers were thinking outside of the box with leather, and not constricting leather designs to fall and winter. We had just gotten in an amazing pair of leather shorts that proved that this was a textile that could look fab any time of year. Well, for those of you that are loving this trend as much as us, good news! It’s still going strong. Case in point: the Madonna Crop Top! This V-neck, spaghetti strap, midriff-baring top is adorable yet edgy. We love the texture, but don’t be fooled. While enjoying the texture of leather, be assured that this top is 100% vegan! This fitted top comes in both black and white, and will have you looking like a bombshell next time you go out. This top would look amazing with a simple pair of blue jeans, but equally as stunning with the contrast of a lacy skirt. Or go edgy and pair with leather bottoms and spiky jewelry. This top also transitions perfectly into fall and would look great under a blazer. However you style it, prepare to look out-of-this-world hot in the Madonna leather crop top, just in this week at Blush!
Sweet with an edge

For many of us women, cardigans are some of our most coveted clothing items! They are crucial for mixing, matching, and layering, all year round. One of Blush’s newest arrivals is a cardigan with details will make your heart skip a beat. The Leanore cardigan is a lightweight white cardigan with gorgeous, large silver buttons, and oversized pockets on the sides. Buttoned up, this cardigan has a V-neck that’s perfect for layering. You may already be in love with this one, but prepare to fall deeper. The back features crochet detail in the form of a skull! We love the mix of sweet and edgy. Given this cardigan’s lightly sheer nature and cut-out on the back, it is a must have for this time of year, as we edge toward fall yet have plenty of warm days ahead. Transition between seasons gracefully in this must-have cardi.
SWITCH IT UP WITH THE CAIRO HAREM PANTS
Posted on August 23, 2013.
Tired of switching out different shirts with the same old jeans every weekend? Why do your shirts get to have all the fun and get all the attention? If you’re frustrated with bottom options, we have pants that you’re going to drool over. We just got the Cairo pants in at Blush, and we want YOU to be the first to know about them, so you can get them while they last! These shiny harem pants are slouchy from the under the waistband to just under the hip. The relaxed top area has pleated detail and drapey, stylish pockets. Then, these babies tighten up, and show off your legs from your thighs to your ankles. These pants are boot-cut, so they look AMAZING with booties (just in time for fall!). The kicker: these pants come in your choice of silver or gold, so you can shine in the tone that looks best on you! Pair these pants with metallic jewelry and anything from a sexy top to a graphic tee. A statement piece of their own, these pants will steal the show! Can you handle them?
crazy for indah!

At Blush Boutique, we are always loving Indah clothing and swimwear. Their carefree boho-chic designs perfectly capture the style of the Blush girl. This week, we are loving Indah more than ever, with tons of gorgeous new arrivals from this one-of-a-kind label. We’re talking maxis in amazing prints with details like fringe on the bottom, cool cutouts on the sides, and drawstring waists. We’re talking a jaw-dropping jumpsuit in a leopard print with a plunging neck and cut-outs that only a picture could do justice. And we are talking a black dress that will make all your other LBDs jealous, with its flowy silhouette and gorgeous, flattering cut-out along the waist.
We also just got in some amazing Indah swimwear. These truly gorgeous pieces include a black crochet bikini with super-sexy mesh detail, and a flirty, blue-print string bikini with fun fringe detail. Our new Indah swimwear also includes a black one piece that is anything but boring – this suit has a very deep V neck and intricate crochet detailing. For you sweethearts, there’s also a super-cute black bandeau bikini with a crochet heart cut-out at the chest and on the upper left of the bottom. Gotta love girly details!
We are Indah crazy right now, and it’s hard not to be with all of these amazing options. Which is your favorite?

This just in: you can be stylish, trendy, and comfortable, all at the same time! Want proof? Check out the Keely pants, now available at Blush stores and on our website. What’s so special about these pants? Well, first of all, who doesn’t love camo print? It’s a hot print that looks great on all skin tones. This print is just going to get more popular as we ease into fall and lean towards more muted colors. Camo also pairs great with most colors, including neutrals and green (Pantone’s “Color of the Year”).These pants are fab because they are slouchy at the hips and fitted along the legs, allowing you to show off your stems while staying super comfy. The black trim around the waist and ankles adds a touch of extra style, and the drawstring waist makes sure these pants are a perfect fit on you. Recommended for: college girls wanting to show off their fashion flair around campus, and women everywhere who are as obsessed with camo print as we are.

It’s a wonderful time of year to be a foodie in Miami. Yes, Miami Spice has finally arrived! For all of August and September, many of Miami’s best (and most expensive) restaurants will have prix fixe menus at set prices of $19 or $23 for lunch, and $33 or $39 for dinner (but make sure to do a little research, as some restaurants only offer “Spice” for dinner). The great thing about Miami Spice is that you can try out spots that may normally be out of your price range, or that you’ve been eyeing but not sure about splurging on.
There are so many places to choose from, but here’s some food for thought. If you want to go somewhere on the beach, perhaps you may want to try Juvia. This place is pricey, serving up a delicious Japanese-French fusion of unique dishes. They also have an awesome rooftop deck with a great view. Want to stay on mainland Miami? Try Zuma, another pricey yet scrumptious Japanese restaurant that serves traditional sushi as well as robata grill dishes, and a gorgeous outdoor area that overlooks the Miami River.
Of course, that is just a fraction of the restaurants that are offering the Spice special this year. Here’s a complete list (courtesy of OpenTable) of participating restaurants: http://www.opentable.com/promo.aspx?pid=119&m=17
So long sweet summer!
Posted on August 7, 2013.
As crazy as it sounds, summer of 2013 is officially starting to wind down! It really does seem like Memorial Day weekend (the unofficial start of summer) was just yesterday. Coeds everywhere are getting ready to head back to school and start hitting the books. If you’re lucky enough to be heading to school in an awesome city like Miami, you should also be ready to celebrate, as Miami uses ANY reason to throw good party.
If you are a UM student, one awesome local event is Festival Miami, which runs for four to six weeks from mid-September, and showcases various global musicians right on campus, from Gloria Estefan to the Costa Rica National Symphony Orchestra. Some of the concerts are free, and the others range from $15-$45 per ticket. Check out the line-up and buy tickets here: http://www.miami.edu/frost/index.php/festival_miami/festival_miami_events/
Keep your eyes peeled to Blush’s online boutique and six locations throughout Miami, as we have the best selection of weekly arrivals for back-to-school style that will leave the guys on campus speechless!
Take the Plunge in the Adra Top
Posted on August 2, 2013.
This summer has been sizzling hot, and crop tops are definitely in order. As an alternative to the loose-fitting, off the shoulder crop top look that has been around for a while, try the Adra top. This fitted crop top is perfectly tailored to your curves. With its very deep V plunge neckline, and stopping just a few inches below the bust, this sleeveless top provides the maximum exposure you need to beat the heat (and look hot doing it)! Choose between black, blue, and red, and pair with fun-print shorts for a cute daytime look, or jeans and heels if you’re heading out at night. The deep plunge at the neck is your perfect opportunity to show off a statement necklace (check out our jewelry section for some fabulous options). This bright, sexy top will have all eyes on you!
