love to the one and only fashion poet
Posted on September 27, 2013.
As huge fans of Miami’s very own Fashion Poet (real name: Annie Vazquez), we are really excited to write a tribute to this talented blogger. This Miami native rocks our world with her sometimes edgy, sometimes sweet, and always chic style. She truly is a fashion poet, as her posts usually feature stylish ensembles, uplifting words, and colorful backdrops in locations all over Miami. Her blog takes you on a whirlwind tour of the best Miami has to offer: everything from awesome local designers to must-see places and events. This girl does it all (she’s even been featured in Vogue Brasil!), yet she has a hometown pride and finds inspiration all around Miami (we love the lush backdrops and gorgeous colors in her shoots). She is proof that passion and determination can make all of your dreams come true! These are just some of the reasons that we would like to show the Fashion Poet some serious love, as she personifies all of the qualities of a Blush girl! To check out her fabulousness for yourself, head over to her blog.
Fall Fashion: A Breath of fresh air
Posted on September 25, 2013.
As September starts to wind down and fall really starts to kick in, so does something every trendy girl loves: fall fashion. Yes, we all love the cute little outfits that spring and summer bring, but fall gives us fashionistas a chance to wear a variety of fabrics, breath in new fall styles, and have fun with layering. Ok, so in reality, it doesn’t feel quite like fall here in Miami just yet. But the rest of the country has felt a slight shift towards a new season, and Miami girls, we are going to be feeling it soon enough. So, let’s get to the fun stuff. Jackets sound like a foreign word after this long summer, but this piece of clothing is about to become your best friend. And here at Blush, we stay fashionably prepared!
Freshly arrived is this new jacket! It's just too adorable to pass up. Our Skyler Metallic Jacket is to die for, and sent from the fall fashion gods. This jacket has lace paneling and a cool sheen to it; just add denim and leather boots for a complete look. Love!
Stay tuned for more fall styles!
Fall Obsession: Sexy Sweatpants
Posted on September 21, 2013.
Looking for comfy pants that you actually want to be seen in? Look no further than Blush’s new arrivals. The Wildon Sweatpants manage to be chic while still being…sweatpants. These fitted and fashionable pants are completely irresistible and can be worn anywhere from an errand run (because you know you’ll run into that hot guy you always see at the post office) to a lounge (just add heels and a cute crop top!). Our favorite detail? The “leather” trim along the pockets (shh, it’s vegan, but it looks just as luxurious as the real thing). The Wildon Sweatpants are definitely bringing comfy AND sexy back. But don’t take our word for it. Get your pair of these go-to, wear-everywhere pants from any of our six locations, or shop comfortably from home at www.shopblush.com! Either way, get them while they last!
Definition of a Blush Girl: The Electric Blogarella
Posted on September 19, 2013.
Blush Boutique would like to give a huge shout-out to The Electric Blogarella (aka Ginger Harris), who is by far one of the most influential and stylish bloggers on the Miami fashion scene. Her blog is full of budget-friendly yet super on-point ways to approach the latest fashion trends (and what girl doesn’t want a friend like that?). We also love that her blog speaks with the women of Miami in mind — look no further for tips on how to protect your skin from Miami’s endless sunny days, or reasons why wearing white past Labor Day is perfectly acceptable here in the Sunshine State. The Electric Blogarella embodies the true spirit of a Blush girl in every way, from her passion for scoring amazing looks without breaking the bank, to her super-likeable personality. These things make her voice unique and her blog posts so addictive, for both women here in Miami, and across the nation. She is the full package, and her blog is a one-stop-shop for staying in the know of all things fashion-related. We have major love for the phenomenon known as The Electric Blogarella. Check out her blog and fall in love for yourself!
Your T-Shirt Day Just Got Cuter
Posted on September 16, 2013.
Every girl has the occasional T-shirt day, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Even on these days that you don’t feel like dolling yourself up from head to toe, you can still be effortlessly stylish with the right tee in your closet. In this week’s new arrivals, we loove this black Brian Lichtenberg Homies crew neck tee, because you can dress it up or down as much as you want, and be super comfy either way. This black tee with gold lettering is so cute, that it kinda doesn’t matter what you wear it with, because this shirt will steal the show. Tie it up to the side and wear it with a cute skirt, or just throw it on with a pair of jeans. Try and keep track of how many compliments you get on this tee; we think you’ll lose count!
Celebrities love this look almost as much as we do! Christina Milian, Miley Cyrus and Rihanna kill it with Brian Lichtenberg's Homie Tees.

Fall’s Here, and We Still Love Aztec Print!
Posted on September 4, 2013.
Aztec print was super popular this summer – it was seen in everything from flowy tops to fun pants. This is one trend that seems to naturally continue on into fall and appear on slightly warmer pieces. A really chic, flattering new arrival at Blush that features Aztec print is the Bryant Vest. This black and white sweater vest features a chunky print, contrast zipper-looking print at the edges, and gorgeous draping. The back is super cute, fitted along the upper back and cut to show off your shoulders. But wait! This trendy print vest only gets better. It’s actually reversible, featuring more black or white, depending which side you choose. This piece looks great with anything from jeans to leggings. Own the fall in this bold vest!
