It’s Back: Our Classic Halter
Posted on May 30, 2014.
It’s summer, which means lots of things. Outdoor cafes, bare feet in the sand, and sun-kissed shoulders, just to name a few. Being that Blush is based in Miami, we consider ourselves experts in all things sun-kissed. This is why we’re super excited to bring back a best-seller: our classic Halter Top. Now available in six (!) colors, this piece defines summer chic. Pick it up in classic Black or White, in Purple or Pink for a super girly vibe, or in Orange or Royal Blue for a summery pop of color.
What’s so great about this top? Well, for starters, the open back is just stunning. We’re also loving the gorge draping and crossover bust. But what really gets us is that this top goes with absolutely everything! It’s definitely an essential summer piece. It can dress up jeans, or accompany a high-waisted skirt and sky-high heels. No matter what the occasion, you’ll look drop-dead gorgeous with this fab halter on.
Show off that tan, girl, even if it’s a work in progress, and pick up this pretty Halter Top today!
Thank Us Later: The Comfy-Chic Lightweight Pant
Posted on May 28, 2014.
Sometimes, fashion and comfort intersect. Us girls know that this is a beautiful thing (and maybe a miracle?). After all, if you’re a slave to fashion like we are, then you’ve had that one time that your heels were about an inch too high to walk without a limp, or went out with the girls in a corset that may or may not have cut off your circulation. Well, ladies, this is not any of those times! Just in at Blush are our super trendy yet ultra comfortable Lightweight Pants.
These babies come in your choice of solid Hot Pink or Yellow with a blue print, and they feature a drawstring waistband, as well as drawstrings at the ankles. The drawstrings help tailor the pants to your body, so you still have a sexy silhouette, despite the loose fit. Yes!! We love these pants paired with neutral heels and a solid tank for brunch, but they are perfect for anywhere you want to look summery casual chic. Major score for looking hot while feeling comfy. You’re welcome.

Pretty in Python.
Posted on May 16, 2014.
While python print might usually be associated with super-sexy, skin-tight styles, we have a new arrival that just may change this ultra-trendy print’s rep to slightly more demure. Our gorgeous Python Print Maxi Dress, which is available in your choice of Taupe or Seafoam, gives off a soft, feminine vibe. It’s perfect for any summer gathering, such as a graduation or wedding. With this dress, it’s all in the lovely little details. We’re obsessed with the tie-detail racerback, the soft print against the dark border, and the flowing silhouette. Come to think of it, we can’t really think of any part of this dress that we’re NOT drooling over. This dress is a staple to any Blush girl’s summer wardrobe. Get it while it lasts -- available now at all Blush locations, as well as our online store!
Love At First Sight
Posted on May 14, 2014.
We’ll admit, here at Blush, rompers have a very special place in our heart. Which is why you shouldn’t be surprised that we’ve fallen in love yet again. But this time, we’ve fallen deeper than ever. You see, the Spaghetti Strap Romper features every quality we’re looking for in a piece of clothing. Trendy Aztec print? Check. Sexy cut-outs? Check! Open back? Yes, check!! As if all of that weren’t enough, this gorge romper transitions perfectly from day to night, and comes in your choice of color (choose Black & White, Navy & White, or Ivory & Black). With the Spaghetti Strap Romper, this love may very well just last forever.
Just In: The Best Jeans Ever
Posted on May 9, 2014.
Boyfriend jeans have been in style for a minute now, but this is a denim trend that is only gaining steam. It’s not hard to see why: boyfriend jeans feature a more relaxed fit (read: comfy), and are a wardrobe staple due to the fact that they can totally be dressed up or down. They’re also a fun alternative to “regular” jeans.
If you’re as in love with this trend as we are, brace yourself: just in are an amazing pair of Distressed Boyfriend Jeans. Yep, your favorite denim silhouette has been upgraded with some distressed detailing and a cuffed hem. Go for all-out chic and pair these babies with sky-high heels and a sexy tank. Your boyfriend’s jeans never looked THIS good!
Alter Ego: The Tie-Dye Romper
Posted on May 7, 2014.
You know how your favorite pieces of clothing can almost take on a personality of their own? You know, your seductive LBD. Your edgy leather jacket. Well, we’ve decided that our Tie-Dye Romper would totally have a split personality: part chill beach girl, part diva. For a laid-back day at the beach, pair with cute sandals and stringy friendship bracelets. Let your inner diva out at your next pool party by pairing the romper with wedges, huge sunnies, and a long, glitzy necklace.
Either way, this romper is clutch for hot summer days, and it’s available NOW at Blush in both Navy and Pink. We can’t decide what we love most about this piece: the drawstring waist, the adjustable straps, or the amazing print! We’ll be wearing this to pool parties, lunches, and the beach all summer long. This little number is truly the best of both worlds!
Take Us Away: Blush’s Top Vacation Spots
Posted on May 2, 2014.
While Blush’s hometown of Miami definitely has more than its share of attractions, sometimes we find ourselves daydreaming about taking a vacation. There are two destinations in particular that we can’t get out of our heads, and we wanted to share the list with you!
-Mykonos & Santorini – Part of the Cyclades group of islands in Greece, these two beautiful islands boast blue waters and bright, whitewashed villas. Also breathtaking are the gorgeous beaches, picturesque coastal sunsets, and yummy Greek cuisine. Yep, count us in – this sounds like the ultimate Greek getaway.
-Maldives – These islands, located in the Indian Ocean, are blowing up as an ideal vacation destination, and it’s easy to see why. This is the ultimate tropical paradise, best known for its white sand beaches and crystal blue water. Diving and snorkeling are extremely popular – expect to see lots of exotic fish! Just as popular is basking in the sun on the pristine
beach. Sounds like heaven to us!
