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!
EDGY TREND: SUMMER LEATHER!

This light, fresh version of a usually cold-weather material is hot right now, and as Blush keeps up on all the latest trends, we have an amazing take on leather for you in this week’s batch of new arrivals. Check out the Parker shorts, made out of a super lightweight vegan leather and with an elastic band at the waist. In your choice of black or wine, these shorts are edgy and great for a night out on the town. 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!
The Sultry Summer Dress, Perfected.

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.
