Ooh La La RUCHE



Confession time: I spend a lot of time browsing the Anthropologie website, clicking around and sighing over the clothes, then sighing even more at the astronomical prices. However, vintage-inspired apparel and accessories with whimsical, pretty detailing need not cost an arm and a leg! I recently received an email from Mai Olivo, the owner of online boutique RUCHE, inviting me to check out her website. According to Mai, "RUCHE is a modern women's boutique with a vintage touch. We try to find items that are new, in-style, trendy, yet still inspired by a vintage look. We handpick each product to give you the perfect selection of clothing, accessories and more. When you visit shopruche.com, we want you to enter a feeling of comfort and nostalgia. We can only hope that you enjoy your visit every time."

Chicas on a budget, take note: Most of the pieces I saw on RUCHE were less than $50 and shipping to Canada is under $10. RUCHE also stocks eco-friendly and handmade finds. And if you're like me and love to window-shop Anthropologie's website, well, there's no shortage of feminine eye candy here.

My favourite picks...

Parfumee coral daisy sundress ($49.99). I love how this frock is so unabashedly feminine with its floral embroidery and cutout details. The silhouette is classic but the coral is perfectly on-trend this season.



Perfect with everything boatneck top ($36.99). This is one top that certainly lives up to its name. Its crisp whiteness and clean lines make it the perfect complement for skinny jeans, denim skirts, leggings, or trousers.



Adorn berry handmade drop earrings ($32.99). These are a nice finishing touch on summer outfits and look good enough to eat.



Chili pepper beaded cuff bracelet ($19.99). Ah, more coral...a bold cuff in a bright hue shows off slim wrists and sun-kissed skin in the warmer months.



Chenin grape scarf ($22.99). It's gray! It's a lightweight summer scarf! It's shaped like bunches of grapes! It's so awesome I can't stop using exclamation points!

  12. MizzJ, shipping is $3, $5, and $7 depending on which price range your total falls into, but it doesn't go any higher than $7.
