Bold Colors at the SAG Awards!
Posted on January 28, 2019.
This past Sunday, actors & actresses gathered in Los Angeles for the 25th anniversary SAG awards. While there were many touching moments and great speeches, we noticed something else: a trend! Many actresses showed up in gowns that featured pops of color. Read on for a couple that really stood out:
-Cara Santana wore a baby blue, off the shoulder, super-ruffly number by Ermanno Scervino. Her floor-length gown is both bold in color and in structure, and it’s perfectly accented by Swarovski drop earrings and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. Yes girl!
-Susan Keletchi Watson looked like a dream in her tiered yellow Christian Siriano gown. The deep V neck, empire waist, and lovely layers, all in tulle, definitely gave us princess/bride/ballerina vibes, but in the most fun color. This dress must have been so fun to wear!
-Emily Blunt went glam in her soft pink Michael Kors gown. Featuring dramatic ruffles along the bodice and embroidered in crystals, this dress pulled every punch, which is exactly why we love it. After all, if you can’t be extra at an awards ceremony in LA (so, basically a fashion show), where can you be extra? Love, love this dress!
Horoscope: It’s Aquarius Season
Posted on January 23, 2019.
Just a quick update for all of our Aquarius (January 10-February 18) girls out there: this is your month! A lot of changes coming your way, but nothing you can’t handle!
Aquarius girls always love speaking their mind, but the sun interacting with Mercury earlier this month gave you even more of a chance to do so, freely. Hopefully, you used this as an opportunity (especially professionally). Next, Saturn and Neptune get together, giving you a feeling of pure exhilaration late in the month, and even more steam to really go towards your dreams. Slightly weird energy then passes through when Mars and Pluto face off, creating dissonance. Hold on through this, and to your good energy from earlier in the month, as things will clear up soon! Remember, Aquarius: you got this!!

Designer We Love: Joah Brown
Posted on January 11, 2019.
When it comes to being so comfortable that it’s sexy, no brand does it better than Joah Brown. Their aesthetic is sporty, soft, and embraces the female silhouette, all at once. Their pieces are basic enough to transition from day to night in, but unique enough to stand out from the crowd. Their pieces mix and match perfectly, creating whole outfits, or separate pieces that can be dressed up or down. And Joah Brown is so soft and comfy to the touch that it won’t even feel like work to look as hot as you will in these threads!
We’re currently featuring lots of Joah Brown at Blush, but some of our fave pieces include the Crop V-Neck, which is flowy and loungey but shows a little tummy, the Ribbed Tank, which goes with anything and everything, and the Open Back Muscle Tank, which comes in your choice of color, is soft to the touch, and will totally show off your toned arms.
We could go on, but we’d have to go on forever, so we’ll let you browse the collection and decide for yourself. Take a look at Joah Brown’s dreamy pieces, available now at Blush.
Our Golden Globes Faves
Posted on January 8, 2019.
The Golden Globes are always fun to watch, but this year, it was even more of a fashion show than we can remember it ever being. So many unique pieces, all on our favorite stars. It’s hard to pick our favorite, so we picked three...
-We loved the goddess-like vibes of Saoirse Ronan’s Golden Globes custom Gucci dress. This dress had it all: platinum beading, crystal embroidery, and a deep V neckline. The silver column gown was every bit as regal as Saoirse herself — it was a perfect fit, and pure fashion genius.
-Lupita Nyong’o’s look at the Golden Globes was nothing short of stunning. Her gorgeous purple Calvin Klein gown featured the most beautiful metal fringe detailing imaginable. The strapless number was every bit made for a superstar like Lupita, but what we really love is that she paired the dress with $45 Aldo heels, and still looked like a million bucks.
-Anne Hathaway never disappoints, and this held true during the Golden Globes. She showed up and showed out in a leopard print Elie Saab gown. Featuring both sheer and shiny panels along the bodice of the gown, and billowing layers of animal print in the skirt part, the dress was made even more fabulous by a split all the way up the leg. Anne clearly knows to go big or go home, because despite taking a huge fashion risk at the awards, she looked utterly flawless! Yass, Anne!
Which was your favorite look?
That 2019 Glow
Posted on January 4, 2019.
If you’re feeling like we are, 2019 is your year for the taking. And what better way to take over what will be the best year of your life, than from the inside out?
While many people have diets focused on losing weight as a New Years resolution, we’re focusing on foods that will help our skin absolutely glow. Where to start?
Of course, naturally bright foods, like fruits and vegetables, are a great place to start. Berries are full of antioxidants, which fight the free radicals that can ravage your skin.
If you’re feeling like an oil slick, time to hit some vitamin A-producing leafy greens. Some of the most powerful ones include spinach, romaine, and arugula. These should help limit oil production so your glow will be the only thing shining!
Pretty much anything orange is a must, as well. Citrusy oranges and lemons help stabilize collagen, while sweet potatoes and carrots have more of that vitamin A that your skin craves.
Also, make sure to get your share of omega-3. From nuts to salmon to avocado, these foods contain the healthy fats that our body and skin need to look and feel their best.
Last but not least, take care of your gut! Probiotic supplements are easily found at Whole Foods and other health-conscious stores, but even most non-processed yogurts contain some degree of probiotics. After all, how can you expect your gut to process all this great food you’ll be eating, if your stomach isn’t exactly at it’s finest?
Most importantly, DRINK WATER! Water is constantly flushing all kinds of garbage out of our system, and helping our skin to stay hydrated gives you that fresh look, all from the inside out. So drink up!
You got this! Xoxo
Gorgeous Resort Wear By Elan!
Posted on January 2, 2019.
Some of Elan’s newest pieces are coming at us in the form of resort wear, and we couldn’t be more thrilled — their pieces are so trendy and perfect for a winter getaway, and they’re available now at Blush. Read on for our faves.
Check out the super dynamic duo of the Stripe Front Tie Blouse & the Stripe Linen Shorts. Both in festive pink and purple print, these otherwise simple pieces pair well together, but also do well on their own, paired with solids. The top features ruffle sleeves, a V-neck, and a tie front, for lots of drama. The shorts are a bit simpler, featuring frayed hems and a tassel waist tie, yet just as trendy. These pieces embody happiness!
The Off The Shoulder Ruffle Playsuit is short, sweet, and golden. Featuring a muted yellow color, off-the-shoulder cut, a drawcord waist, and lots of ruffles, this dress is perfect, and works anywhere from the beach as a coverup, to a casual date. Flouncy and with a fun silhouette, this one will become your fave in no time.
The Front Knot Cami Dress, both simple and classy at once, is that easy breezy LBD that we all need in our lives. Featuring a front knot, wide ruffle detail towards the bottom, and adjustable spaghetti straps, this dress will get you wherever you need to go. After all, black is always in style, and the details on this dress are what make it stand out, no matter where your vacation takes you.
Another staple resort piece we love us the Ruffle Culotte. All in black, this piece features ruffle detail at the bottom hems and an elastic waist. These pants are sure to add a chic touch when mix and matched with just about any top.
