Today's New Blog Name Is...


Today, my blog will be called "Because Erin Said So", Erin with Currently Coveting that is...

Why you ask?

Because she introduced me to this ahhhhhh-mazing website called Ruche.  Most of you have probably already heard of, but I just got word from my blog bud, Miss Erin, a few weeks ago and can't believe I have been missing out for so long. 

Actually, I should probably be cursing the fact that I was exposed to such a place...I mean, it could get ugly...REAL UGLY for my bank account.

They have the cutest stuff and it is AFFORDABLE...now that's what I'm talking about!  I would describe their collections as classic, feminine, flirty and vintage-boutiquey {is that a word?}. 

I seriously want every single piece of fabulousness on this site...okay, maybe not the pet stuff
{yes, they even sell stuff for your furballs}, but even all of that is precious beyond belief.

And what entices me continue to ramble about Ruche, is that it all started with a love for fashion and a dream...a dream of a wife and husband that came true through hard work and sacrifice.  Their success wasn't handed to them on a silver platter.  Look at them now...they are kind of my new hereos. 

So, my friends, this is one of my fave finds from none other than, yep you guessed it...Ruche
Dress: Everly (sold out) | Shoes: Old | Flower Belt: NY&Co | Jewelry: Forever21


My only disappointment in this dress is that it's a little baggy under my arms. I am somewhat neglected when it comes to the upper portion of my body...are there any others out there that can relate?

Cheers to Ruche, dreams coming true and wishing for a bra that can truly make my boobs bigger!

Today I am linking up with:

That dress is so pretty on you, Shanna! I love the pleated skirt! I think the underarm thing could be fixed with a minor alteration. :) I've heard of Ruche, but haven't bought anything yet...being petite, it's a little risky buying clothes online!

Girl word travels fast !! I was just looking at Ruche and every time my heart jumped and said, "OH!" over something I liked it is sold out! Crazy and sad. :( I am on the waiting list for a "few" things! Thanks for the great find! I'm always looking for something flirty and feminine and it's sometimes hard to find at old navy. ;) ha!
