ShopRuche - A Modern Boutique with a Vintage Touch

Over the last few days England was hit with a snow storm that brought the country to a standstill. Trains and buses were left in limbo, the tubes were few and far between, schools were closed which meant that millions of people were snowed in. There was only one thing for it; go out and have a huge snow fight or do some serious online shopping. Retail analysts reported that online sales almost quadrupled over the last few days as people took advantage of the free time by indulging in a bit of retail therapy. Online shopping is certainly booming what with defunct store Woolworths opening up an online store. Enter, an online boutique with a vintage touch that is crammed with pretty cute things. Floaty dresses in floral and chiffon cut in all sorts of cool shapes that you can wear over jeans or alone. There is also an amazing selection of tops that are cute enough to wear to work and funky enough to dress up when you are going out after work. also has a fine line in bags, jewellery and shoes which is just what every stylish lady needs to complete an outfit. Everything about the boutique reeks of sublime style and it is no wonder considering that every piece is handpicked by Mai Olivo, the chic founder of the store. She creates the Ruche look by carefully selecting items from small boutiques, flea markets and thrift stores. Keeping in touch with the modern times, she also believes that you do not need to break the bank to look good.

In order to celebrate the opening, Mai is offering you a 10% gift voucher on your first purchase at the shop. So get shopping and get yourself all ruched up.

Thanks for enlightening me about Ruche! She has some really cute and affordable earrings! I guess being snowed in is the perfect excuse for some retail therapy!! :-)

Woolworth's...hmm...I think we used to have one of those in Chicago way back in the day. I wonder if it's the same kind of store.

Yes you guys did have a Woolworths, in fact I think the shop originated from the US. They were a very popular store that traded for decades and then went bust late last year. It was quite a shock as Woolworths was seen a bit of a national institution.
