  • Fashion Friday: Blazers for Spring 2014

    Since the seasons are changing, it has been quite the challenge to find the "perfect" look these days. Earlier this week, we talked about spring casual outfits, but there's one great spring look that we didn't mention: blazers! Until the weather is adequate for the more revealing summer wear, which we have been craving all winter, we find blazers are the perfect fashion piece to make any outfit look super trendy and complete! Plus, the look as been all over the runways.

    Spring BlazersAlthough prints are very "in" for the Spring/Summer 2014  season, a very minimalistic approach was taken by designers when it comes to blazers. As you can see above, a pastel blazer can be worn with shorts, a skirt, pants, or even a romper, and still look fabulous for day-to-day wear. A huge bonus by adding a blazer is you can still look great without a tremendous amount of trying or over doing-it by getting too dressed up. It will always have you looking both classic AND classy. The blazer is also the perfect piece of clothing to throw on after work for an event or special dinner!

    Spring 2014 BlazersAs you can see, this light jacket can be paired with any type of outfit and it doesn't have to be plain. From striped to polka dots, everything works for Spring 2014! If you want to wear pants, shorts or a skirt, a blazer if the perfect complement, and is the easiest way to dress an outfit up or down. If it's colder out on the night of your prom, you could even throw a blazer on over your prom dress for a cute extra layer! It's always fun to dress a blazer up with a less "business-y" look like a prom dress, as it makes for stand-out contrasts. How are you wearing your blazer this spring? Let us know, we would love to find out!

  • What To Wear Wednesday: Spring Casual Outfits

    Even though we all love the Spring sunshine, flowers, and the days of Summer rapidly approaching, Spring can be a tricky time of year to dress because of its "in between" weather stage. However, for this same reason, this is one of our favorite times to mix it up with unique combinations of clothing and accessories. Due to the warmer weather, you can pair jeans with a crop top, or a dress with a sleek leather jacket. The options are endless, making us obsessed with Spring/Summer 2014 fashion. This week, we are all about Spring casual outfits. Our 'What To Wear Wednesday' is a casual, yet cute outfit that can be worn any day (night) of the week!

    A Fun Romper

    Shail K 3468

    Rompers are a great way to get a dress look, while feeling a little more casual in shorts. This trend is so in right now, and it's one that you can easily take from day to night just by adding some accessories (and heels) to dress it up. We especially love the Shail K. 3468 Sleeveless Short Romper -

    A Classic Denim Jacket

    Level 99 "Western" Denim Jacket

    A classic denim jacket is a must-have accessory for the Spring, and even the Summer, months. It's a classy way to throw an extra layer on top of any outfit during times when it's a little cooler out.

    The Modern Sunhat

    Modern Sunhat

    Sun hats are so fun! They're also perfect for keeping the rays out of your eyes once you're hitting the beach in the Summer.

    Perfect Shades

    Rayban Gold Aviators

    Shades are a must, of course. You might as well make sure you look stylish while you keep the sun out of your eyes!

    Ultra Mod Booties

    Free Bird by Steven "Rollin" Bootie

    The Spring months are your last chance to wear booties before Summer comes and you're in sandals all the time, so live up your last days! We are especially loving the new cutout bootie trend - a great one to try out for Spring.

    That's it! The perfect casual spring outfit that is still fun and flirty enough to be worn to a party or lunch, yet casual enough for a shopping trip! Like what you see? Comment below and tell us about your casual Spring day outfit!

  • Inside CHANEL Perfume

    The perfume company CHANEL recently created a whole website to tell the history of the company and how it all came to be. There's so much interesting information behind the company and perfume that we wanted to share it with all of our Roo Girls! The story dates all the way back to 1883 when Gabrielle Chanel was born.

    Of course, CHANEL No 5 perfume is the most well-known of the CHANEL collection, and is one of the most well-known perfumes of the world. So, we were happy to see that "Chapter 1" of "Inside CHANEL" started with the story of how CHANEL No 5 came to be! The fragrance was created in 1921 for the first time, and has such a beautiful story behind it. Watch it here:

    http://youtu.be/tRQa33dqyxI

    We loved learning the story behind the perfume coming to be was that Chanel sought to create:

    "A woman's perfume with a woman's scent. Her scent should be as important as her style of dress. A woman should wear perfume wherever she would like to be kissed."

    Chanel quoteThe perfume was the first time a perfume wasn't based on only one floral scent, and it certainly made an impact on the perfume industry from there on out. It's become a classic and iconic scent that has truly tested time. It's even been honored by the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, and the famous artist Andy Warhol even included it in a series of his paintings! And of course, you can't look over Marilyn Monroe being known for wearing the perfume, revealing that she wears to bed, "just a few drops of No 5." And, ever since then, so many more celebrities, even Brad Pitt, have promoted the perfume. Our favorite part of the whole first video, though may be how it ended: "No 5 resists the whims of fashion and the passage of time, as of Mademoiselle Chanel had found the formula for the feminine eternal." It definitely sounds like she has!

    There's so much more to the CHANEL story than just this Chapter 1 video, though, and definitely too much to include in only one blog post! There are 10 full "Chapters" to the story, as well as an interactive timeline, all on their website at Inside.Chanel.com. If you love CHANEL and CHANEL perfume, it's definitely a fun website to check out. Enjoy!

  • Kim and Kanye on the Cover of Vogue!

    It's been all the talk lately - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, better known as "Kimye" gracing the April 2014 cover of Vogue Magazine! Vogue boldly marked the importance of Kimye by including the subtitle of, "Their Fashionable Life and Surreal Times, #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple," on the cover, and it's left everyone in a frenzy.

    Vogue-kim-kanye

    Those in the fashion industry are up-in-arms over Vogue's choice and declaration, saying that they aren't even a good representation of a fashionable couple and what Vogue stands for as a magazine. From hilarious reactions on Twitter to some even threatening to cancel their subscriptions, everyone's definitely had an opinion over this cover! There's even been some funny Kimye Vogue cover spoofs - from James Franco and Seth Rogan, to The Muppets' Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy ('Kermie & Piggy' on the cover!), to even Kylie and Kendall Jenner! We love that the Jenner sisters can make fun of their cousin like that - so silly!

    kim-kardashian-kanye-west-vogue-cover-parodys

    But, our favorite reaction may be Naomi Campbell's. The 43-year-old supermodel appeared on Australia's "The Morning Show," where she beautifully demonstrated an important lesson - if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!

    When one of the hosts of the show asked Naomi what she thought of the cover, she simply smiled and said, "I do not want to comment," followed by a laugh and mention that she is a fashion model.

    But, of course, the host was dissatisfied with this response and continued to prod her with an answer by asking if she thought, "Kim and Kanye haven't earned the right to be on the cover of Vogue?" Naomi simply replied with, "Those are your words, not mine. I'm being politically correct." So classy! And, coming from a fashion model, so perfect!

    With all this said, we think Kim looks gorgeous on the cover, and Kanye looks handsome, of course. we especially loved the gorgeous white strapless gown that Kim wore on the cover - it hugs her curves so perfectly!

  • Get Morgan Stewarts Spring Style!

    The E! hit show #Richkids of Beverly Hills has everyone talking! From the excessive spending and shopping to the ultra glamorous parties and dinners, the #Richkids cast has only the sky as their limit! Even though we may not be able to access the high fashion goods these newborn celebs have, we can still steal their style. #Richkids own blonde bombshell, Morgan Stewart, recently started her own blog and shared some of her favorite fashion items with us on Trendabl.

    One of her faves happens to be the CC Skye Sunset Boulevard clutch, which is an acrylic, transparent clutch with a removable chain. It just so happens this resembles our super fashionable La Regale 25550 transparent chain clutch in fuchsia!

    La Regale 25550 Transparent Chain Clutch La Regale 25550 Transparent Chain Clutch

    We are seriously crushing on this ultra trendy clutch! Voted one of the "best gifts for her" on Amazon.com for Valentine's Day, and loved by fashionista Morgan Stewart, this clutch is perfect for any special occasion or wild night on the town! Its transparent look and detachable chain give it an edgy appeal and versatile style. It can easily be paired with jeans for a night out with friends, or add a little funk to your formal outfit and wear it to prom!

    We are loving this modern twist on the classic evening bag and love that Morgan Stewart agrees! The best part about this La Regale clutch is you don't have to be rich to afford it! Priced at $37.00, you can have Morgan's impeccable style without her hefty bank account. Plus, you can stock up on this style in multiple colors, so that you have a version to wear with every outfit. It also comes in colors Emerald and Royal.

  • Best Dresses of the 2014 Grammys

    While many viewers were excited to see Daft Punk perform and learn who would win album of the year (surprise! It was Daft Punk), we were just excited to see all the incredible outfits. Every year, we try to predict who will have the most stunning looks, and we think our picks hit it out of the park!

    roos1Beyonce

    We were absolutely counting down the seconds to see what Beyonce would wear – after all, she's the epitome of fierce. Lo and behold, she didn't let us down! Sexy, sophisticated, and unique, Beyonce's mermaid-silhouette gown highlighted her knockout curves: a classic cream and lace combination that was brought to the next level with the perfect red lip.

    Get the Look!

    If you want to recreate the texture, color scheme, and silhouette of Beyonce's gown, try this ivory lace mermaid dress by Sherri Hill.

     

     

    56th GRAMMY Awards - Red CarpetAnna Kendrick

    We think Anna Kendrick knows how to show some skin without overdoing it. Her amazing dress was an understated gray-tone with trendy bodice cutouts and embellishments. The slit on the skirt makes her legs look miles long! She styled it with effortless loose curls for an overall classy-but-sexy vibe.

    Get the Look!

    Anna Kendrick stood out at the Grammys without wearing bright colors, and you can too. Cop her monochromatic look and sleek silhouette with this similar gown from Jasz Couture. Gray is anything but boring when you make use of tasteful cutouts and up-top embellishments.

    Sarah Hyland

    Who says that cocktail dresses have no place on the red carpet? Sarah Hyland is nothing-but-glamour in this black-and-white color-blocked cocktail-length piece. We think the sheath silhouette is extremely modern and the minimal accessories let her outfit do all the talking. It's the perfect vintage-inspired look!

    Get the Look!

    If you're looking for a vintage silhouette, a short hemline, and black-and-white color-blocking, this geometric piece from Johnathan Kayne is just what you're looking for. Style your hair with plenty of volume, use minimal accessories, and find yourself a strappy pair of black stilettos to bring it all together.

     

    roos4Ariana Grande

    Nothing says feminine like tea-length and floral! We love this dress because it's so unique – you don't usually see dresses that are not-quite-floor-length but not-quite-cocktail-length on the red carpet, and Ariana Grande absolutely rocked it. Plus, while it seems like a lot of other attendees went for muted color palettes, she went ahead and did a pattern. She looks so flirty and fun!

    Get the Look!

    This polka-dot dress by La Femme has a similar silhouette and a fun pattern that imitates Ariana's cute look. The mesh overlay neckline gives off a retro vibe that we absolutely love. You can't go wrong with a simple pair of pumps, and there's plenty of room to play around with any color jewelry and accessories!
