17 May

 Who doesn’t need an army of sun dresses in their closet to battle this fabulous weather? I know we do – luckily we are the Blushettes and Blushing Boutique is our playground. For those of you who aren’t so lucky, meet Mandy who can assist you in all your sun dress occasion needs! Be it a BBQ, luncheon, Wedding/Baby Shower, or even happy hour with the ladies – Mandy has got you covered! This lovely light-weight cotton dress comes in the below Navy and White pattern or a Cranberry Animal Print for $185.  It can be purchased in store or online at www.blushingboutique.com!

Look #1: Cool-Casual-Classic

Flats and a clutch never looked so good with this dress leading the way! Sophie went for a casual and comfortable look pairing the Mandy dress with a unique yellow and silver shimmer clutch ($90 – Available at Blushing) her own embellished Tory Burch sandals. Add a pop of color with turquoise drop earrings  ($30 – Available at Blushing and designed by Sophie herself!) and you are ready to conquer the day with the coolest-casual-classic style this century has seen!

Look #2: Ravishing in Red

Who doesn’t love red? It is the color of some of our favorite things, roses, lips, and wine – of course! Wear this classic color all season long by adding your favorite trends and accessories! Sophie plays up this primary color palate by rocking the trendy head scarf with a beautiful two-toned burgundy silk To Desire scarf ($145 – Available at Blushing). The color-combo continues as Sophie pairs this adorable dress with a Creative Dimensions bag  handmade in Bali ($65 – Available at Blushing). Played up with neutral crystal earrings ($95 – Available at Blushing) and Friis & Company peep-toe pumps, Sophie is as ravishing as ever in red!

Look #3: Illegally Regal

This dress can be regally refined in no time for more formal occasions or even the office! Sophie paired this universal dress with a white Shelley Klassen fitted jacket ($312 – Available at Blushing) and presto – she is royalty worthy! Add a navy blue beaded Blushing Designs necklace ($110 – Available at Blushing) and a chunky Rad Juli belt in navy and white ($95 – Available at Blushing). Don’t forget the Friis & Company peep-toes and before you know it, you will have people stopping and staring at your illegally regal look!

 We are summer dreaming today and this Shanti dress in coral is not helping! With visions of summer (and sugar-plums) dancing in our heads – it can all be reality for $235.  Shanti has a V-neck with a lace overlay. The angled lines on the dress make it one of our most flattering fits. It can be purchased in store or online at www.blushingboutique.com!

Look #1: Caribbean Cool

With your holiday coming up, the #1 item to pack is the Trista dress! Comfort meets style with this vibrant coral color. Sophie lets this dress shine in the coastal sun all on it’s own with minimal accessories! A statement Earth Essence necklace ($169 – Available at Blushing) and her own H&M flats do the trick! All she needs is a coconut to go along with this Caribbean cool look!

Look #2: Fashionista of the Opera

When you go to a summer performance don’t compromise your style! Spice it up with the Trista dress and stand out on Opera night.  Sophie shows us that you can dress up this summer outfit for all occasions! Paired with a To Desire black silk scarf /wrap ($198 – Available at Blushing) a custom Davie & Chiyo clutch ($100 – Available at Blushing) she is ready for a night out. Adding a JFG black crystal necklace ($134 – Available at Blushing), Brava hoop earrings ($26 – Available at Blushing), and Friis & Company peep-toe pumps, Sophie isn’t the Phantom but rather brings the Fashion to the Opera!

Look #3: Fun in the Sun

For a sunny weekend – put on your soon-to-be favorite Trista dress and head outside! Don’t worry about the sun or your purse with this over the shoulder bag from Friis & Company ($89 – Available at Blushing). Adding simple jewelry like a Rachel Robinson pearl and crystal bracelet ($220 – Available at Blushing) and tear-drop earrings with pearls ($78 – Available at Blushing) is sophisticated yet understated. Sophie added her own sunnies and sandals for the perfect seawall walk in style!

Sorry we weren’t able to blog Meet the Dress on Monday! We have been busy planning our upcoming event and as a result have been in party mode! Join us next Wednesday at 5:30pm to meet ‘The Real Housewives of Vancouver’ Director Shannon Nering. Need a dress for the event? We have the perfect one – Trista Reversible Cowl Neck Dress at $185.  Trista has a cowl neck and is reversible – front to back. This comfortable, giving, and flattering jersey dress is one of the best for the upcoming Spring/Summer party circuit. It can be purchased in store or online at www.blushingboutique.com!

Look #1: Posh Pose

It’s easy to strike a pose with this posh ensemble! With the cowl neck in the front, Sophie is showing off those shoulders with a sexy cut-out back. Wearing a delicate pair of crystal earrings by Rachel Robinson ($56 – Available at Blushing) and statement shoes from Friis & Company Sophie is perfectly posh! Work it!

Look #2: Extraordinary Office

Who says you can’t be comfortable and fashionable whilst at work? Sophie shows us that you can have your cake and eat it too – at the office, that is! Pairing this adorable dress with a Shelley Klassen fitted jacket that has a hint of sparkle ($312 – Available at Blushing) Sophie makes this dress classic and comfortable work appropriate attire. Accessorized with an Erin Miller necklace ($120 – Available at Blushing) and Friis & Company peep-toe pumps, Sophie makes all fellow co-workers envious with her extraordinary office outfit!

Look #3: Peep Show

This dress is perfect if you are going from work to cocktail party! One of the advantages of a reversible dress is that before you can say “one-two-switch-a-roo” you have a new outfit! Sophie switched the cut-out to the front giving us a sexy and sultry look.  Whilst she did pair her outfit with her favorite pair of Friis & Company peep-toes,  the gorgeous peep show cut-out speaks for itself as this dress alone is a statement. Peep away – the Shelley Klassen way!
