    I'm truly torn! I'm so happy you have introduced me to this site!

    While the introducing Elizabeth Bennett really appeals to me (I'm marrying a Mr. D'Arcy in June! - got 4 copies of Pride & Prejudice for Christmas!) It would have to be the sew up my heart necklace.

    I have a divine singer sewing machine that is working hard these days making DIY bunting, flowers and decorations for my wedding. The machine was my aunt & godmothers who's 9 year anniversary fell on mothers day this year. She's been my true inspiration and know that if she was still around she'd be here sewing with me (and probably making my dress) I do miss her. This chain really reminded me of her.
  85. Grete F-P — Monday, April 4th, 2011
    Not only is Ruche bookmarked on my computer, but it is the most visited site! I've been searching for a great summer hat, I should have gone to Ruche first but as soon as I saw the Bow of Beauty Straw Hat it screamed summer perfection!

    There is a store called Ruche, it's an online boutique,
    their clothes are so darn cute they make my knees weak.
    I'd love to be the winner of the "paisley maxi skirt"
    If I don't, I'll be fine, but my my will my heart hurt...
    <3 Ruche so dearly

    I LOVE's one of my favorite stores! I'm loving the "midnight blooming floral dress".

    This is the sunflower sensations ruffle top, and it's spring and summer wrapped up in a feminine, bold top. I'm at school in Boston right now, and all I can think about is summer back home in LA...this shirt fits that feeling perfectly, and now I just want to have it so I can walk around in the rain and pretend to myself that things are a liiiiittle bit sunnier than they really are...Plus, it would make for a ton of cute outfits: it would go with jeans, shorts, a skirt, sandals, heels...siiiiiiiiigh

    I totally love the "Leaf Bag in Avocado"... I have been looking for a funky, colorful bag for awhile that isn't too crazy! Love this website :)

    I love the vintage love story lace pocket dress! It's so adorable!
  135. Alyssa Stahl — Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
    Love allll of their clothes and accessories. Right now, I am into dresses and I absolutely adore their victorian romance draped dress. However, I love the cut and length of the lisa mae navy floral maxi dress.
  136. Amanda — Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
    Ruche is one of my favorite stores to look at! Right now the dress I'm lusting after most is the Sweet Cherry Picking printed dress but it is just one of many many things I love on this site!
  137. Hepsibob Plodka — Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
    I love the mint n' chips top by Nick and Mo- I have never ordered from Ruche, but I keep checking out their site. I would definitely order this top!

    I also love their little desk items... like the special shaped paper clips.
  138. Alainna — Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
    I like the Victorian Romance Dress. I think it would work great for my engagement photos that I taking very soon. I plan on treating my fiance to a (surprise) night on the town in Milwaukee after we take the photos :).
  139. Jaylene — Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
    I just bought some jewelry from Ruche and I LOVE it! The "Lily Lace Greed Beaded Purse" is definitely one of my favorite items!
  140. Samie — Wednesday, April 6th, 2011
    LOVE the olive tree sweetheart lace dress. The perfect colour pallette and vibe for the colder months us southern hemisphere-ers are heading into. And besides, who can say no to lace?
  141. JB — Wednesday, April 6th, 2011
    The Look at the Stars lace skirt is simply breathtaking!
  142. Laura Murray — Wednesday, April 6th, 2011
    I love Ruche. I am on their site all the time getting ideas. And, actually, I just did a blog post of my own on my favorite dresses from Ruche for an engagement shoot

    My favorite thing right now, may just be the bow of beauty straw hat, but they are sold out :(
  143. cheryl — Wednesday, April 6th, 2011
    i love the sweet cherry picking printed dress by 50 Dresses :)
  144. Becca — Wednesday, April 6th, 2011
    I'm so in love with this dress...
  145. Jessica Oh — Wednesday, April 6th, 2011
    I love the "feeling so fragrant flower hair clip" in green. It's just adorable!
  146. meagan columbia — Wednesday, April 6th, 2011
    I love the Hannah dress in stripe print by Dear Creatures, but it's a little out of my price range.
  147. erika — Wednesday, April 6th, 2011
    I'd pick one of those pretty pretty dresses... perfect to wear all summer long! Or I'd get a cute top... or some shoes... I would have THE hardest time deciding what to get! :)
  148. Maria — Wednesday, April 6th, 2011
    I love the "out on a limb cream indie scarf" since it combines my love of scarves and trees. Ok, its more of an obsession than a love of scarves.
  149. Terra — Wednesday, April 6th, 2011
    I love Ruche! What a great find, thanks for posting their website. I am now swooning over the happy daisy shimmery dress and dreaming of an evening with it on!
  150. Jane — Thursday, April 7th, 2011
    I LOVE the "look who's calling salt and pepper shakers"!! OMG at first I actually thought this was a phone! It is so interesting and so creative. I am going to buy this and put it on my table and trick all my guest!
  151. Melissa — Thursday, April 7th, 2011
    I looooove the "let's take a walk together print dress". But i also loooove 90% of all the other stuff! hee hee.
  152. Elena — Thursday, April 7th, 2011
    There is something about the "you make me blush dress" that really hits home with me. Since I was born, my grandmother (aka Nana) has been telling me stories of the fashions of her time growing up in Puerto Rico. They didn't have much money, so her mother (aka Super-Nana) made all of her clothing. Feminine dresses with eyelet and lace... I have fallen in love with that style.

    Although I have never seen any of the dresses my Super Nana created, the "you make me blush dress" is exactly what I have imagined they would look like.
  153. Holly — Thursday, April 7th, 2011
    What a challenging decision to pick just one favorite! My love covers their whole line. Currently my favorite pair of shoes are the "boggle floral lace up flats." They are so vibrant yet simple...a perfect spring must :)
  154. Kelly — Thursday, April 7th, 2011
    I'm pretty smitten with the "laced with love dress in lavender" or maybe we could call it the love & lavender dress...
  155. Lydia — Thursday, April 7th, 2011
    For the past three days, I have been wondering what my favorite item on the Ruche website is. At last, I decided on the "ready for your close-up" brass camera necklace. I love photography and I've never seen anything like this necklace! It's so cute!
  156. Jeannie — Thursday, April 7th, 2011
    I love the "time flies with you dress in ivory" dress,so simple, sweet and elegant, but the entire collection is adorable.
  157. postcards and pretties — Friday, April 8th, 2011
    Its hard to narrow it down to just one item but I love the gracefully entwined embroidered top.
  158. rachel — Friday, April 8th, 2011
    the "let's take a walk together" printed dress would be the perfect summer frock!
  159. Marti — Friday, April 8th, 2011
    I need some lovely purple in my wardrobe, and the "you've got a spot in my heart polka dot" dress would be perfect!
  160. Anoush Cyrus — Friday, April 8th, 2011
    i love everything from ruche, i'm a poor grad student but if i weren't, i'd buy the whole inventory! :) my favorite is the beat of my heart purple pleated skirt. xoxo
  161. Carmen — Friday, April 8th, 2011
    I adore the "believe in you and me button up dress" so cute!
  162. Sabrina — Friday, April 8th, 2011
    It's hard to choose a favorite because I like so many...but I really love "she's like the wind/gray". This dress has existed in my head for a while and now here it is!
  163. Simona — Friday, April 8th, 2011
    I love "ascending pleats one shoulder dress in coral". Perfect for our outdoor rehearsal dinner!
  164. Abby Hart — Friday, April 8th, 2011
    I am so glad you posted this contest on your twitter post! I had never heard of Ruche before so obviously it spiked my interest and i checked out the website. I DIE for most of the things on this site! WOW, what a totally fun, creative and original site!My all time fav. thing that i kept coming back to was...the Barbershop quartet blue striped dress! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS!!!!! WOW SO UNIQUE!
  165. Jacky — Friday, April 8th, 2011
    I can't decide between the barbershop quartet blue striped dress or the sweet escape olive belted dress by c.luce, but there are so many other cute things too!
  166. Star — Saturday, April 9th, 2011
    I absolutely love ruche! my favorite piece right now is the achy braky dress
  167. Cheyenne — Sunday, April 10th, 2011
    I don't know if I can still get in for the contest, but I LOVE the "hopeful and heartfelt beige lace dress."
  168. Julia Lorenz-Olson — Monday, April 11th, 2011
    Oh man...I ADORE the "when in rome" linen stripe dress. Perfect for ANYTHING!! I would wear it all summer till it wore out, then pull on some black tights, tuxedo jacket and slouchy boots with a big black wool hat for fall and winter.
  169. Adelina — Thursday, April 14th, 2011
    Love that Ruche is an online store focusing on vintage, chic, boutique woman clothing style for a resonable price, unlike the Other store that costs $110+ for a blouse!
  170. Christine — Monday, April 18th, 2011
    I haven't seen this store before, but I love it! I especially love the mosaic festival ruffle dress!
  171. adris — Sunday, September 25th, 2011
    I really love the valorina pleated dress! It's so adorable and would look great on anyone!
