Oh search engines, look what you’ve gone and found for me now. Sniffing around for some past product shots last week I stumbled upon this nifty little online shop called Ruche. They call themselves a ‘modern boutique with a vintage touch’ and I say ‘Yes please.’
The flowy dresses. The vibrant patterns. The wink and whimsy. I could easily see many pieces from this store being sold at Anthro. Apparently Ruche is online-only (brava! to that) site run out of California. And like Anthro the boutique is a co-op of handpicked items selected from independent brands.
I oohed and aahed over several of the products over on their blog look book and then decided to look around their site a bit. At first I was just looking at the products themselves but I soon noticed a pattern. Of affordability! I could not believe how fair the prices were. Tops, bottoms and dresses for around $40? Purses and shoes for the same?
I decided it was worth trying an order. After browsing for a bit I settled on the A Wrinkle in Time Ivory Dress ($33, styled above). Shipping was $5 and my order shipped next day. Best of all I love the dress! Though I had to size up to a Large I don’t mind because the dress is as cute as a button. Fun and flouncy and I can’t wait to wear it.
No doubt I’ll be going back for more. If they had a wish list I would put the (sold-out) Beige Chiffon Sunday Dress ($40), the Jarrah Marri Dreams tank top ($37) and the Pasofino Studded Saddle Bag ($40) on it. What do you think of Ruche?
