A Special Sister Style with Ruche!

Shop1Remember how Elsie and I took a quick trip to California last month? Well, we got to visit the headquarters of Ruche! We have been working with Ruche through our blog for nearly two years now. It was such a pleasure to get to meet everyone and see where the magic happens. 🙂 We also got invited to be a part of a very special Sister Style.Shop3We took five items (a cute dress, a pretty skirt, fancy pants, darling blouse and knit cardigan!) and got to show different ways of styling them. We both love putting together outfits even though we have slightly different styles and slightly different body types. I love to see Elsie come up with an outfit that I would never think of. It's sort of a sister thing! You can see all our styled outfits hereA beautiful mess for rucheWe had such an amazing time seeing their work space and getting to be a part of a special feature. (You can see us hamming it up in this behind the scenes video.) Thank you Ruche!!!! xo. Emma and Elsie And P.S. A speical thanks to Sucre for allowing us to use their beautiful song Chemical Reaction

  • now that i think about i have never heared your voice so it would be cool to hear you voice in a video or something 🙂

  • Elsie you look so cute in person! Your pics are usually really posed and I couldn’t imagine such a wide smile and cute expressions. It’s lovely. The outfits you chose were nice. I love your sisters’ work. x

  • I just love this post and the video was fantastic!! Can anyone tell me the song and artist of the song? i just love it!

  • I totally haven’t seen this (what two days without internet makes to a blogger?) love the look girls the photoshoot turned so pretty 🙂

  • Ah! I love the video and pictures. So fun and girly. I totally did that tutorial with the canvases. I made a few actually =)

  • It looks and sounds like it was such an exciting experience. I love the video, it really brings you both to life – more so than ever!

  • These are such cute outfits! looks like you guys had so much fun!



  • How lovely video, really can feel the sister vibe and it`s so amazing watching you two in action, is better than the photos. it reminds me of my sis and me, we are so similar, I prefer Emma`s style but I`m more like Elsie`s temperament just like princess.

  • Eep! This looks SO awesome! Looks like the neatest environment and I love the outfits as usual! <3

  • Its so nice to see you gals in a video and not pictures! We get to see what you are like unedited.

  • I love Emma’s outfit in the first picture with the blue knit cardigan and hat!

  • I really like the outfits you pulled *again 🙂 I do that all the time with my sister too, even though we have very different body shape, it’s like having new clothes everytime!

  • oh gosh!!! i loved that little video! you guys are so cute! i want a sister!!! and i loved watching you work and seeing your mannerisms, candid laughs, and eye contact! thats special since we dont get to see you guys, we just read your words. i loved it!!! and who cooler to work with than ruche?!?! love that place!

  • ok the video was lovely and you two girls are BEAUTIFUL!

    But what i also loved was the song over the video. i now realize its sucre, who i’ve never actually listened to before but will definitely do so now!

  • Oh you make me miss my sis! We’ve been over here in Korea for almost 2 years…meaning 2 YEARS without seeing her! Can you imagine?! Every time I read about you too I make sure to give her a call, an email, a web-camera smile;) What song was that? It was lovely!

  • such a cute video! love when you two are together, talk about dynamic duo!


  • I absolutely love Emma’s jumper on the second photo and the video is so lovely!


  • The dress looks nice and is really suited for young women. When I look at dress like this one I am reminded always of my younger sister…

  • I love the polka dotted dress! The video was so sweet, you two are gorgeous (:

  • cool I like the outfits, especially that green lacey top 🙂


  • Aww, I got all weepy seeing you two in this video! You two did a beautiful job and looked fantastic and it was good for my sappy little Colorado living heart to watch this. Love and miss you both!!!

  • I love seeing the different takes on one piece! Such an amazing opportunity with Ruche. Congrats ladies! 🙂

  • Its so nice too see, you girls, actually moving and talking. See how both of you smile and interact with each other, outside the standing and stopped photos. do you know what i mean? lol

  • Georgette: I found the song, its called Chemical Reaction by Sucre and its on iTunes in the US. 🙂 I don’t know if its on iTunes in other countries though.

  • I can’t get over how flippin’ adorable you both are! And to see you “in action” unleashes the sisterly similarities. So many smiles… lovely.

  • Congrats on the fun opportunities! Loving both looks, and loving the Sucré soundtrack in the Ruche video!
