  • White Hot American Summer

    Labor Day Weekend is upon us, and the official first day of Fall may be only a month away, but it's still Summer and we have a lot more sun to still take in! Plus, with how popular the white trend has been, Labor Day definitely won't be the last day you can rock the color for this year! That's why we're picking out our favorite white cocktail dresses so you can make sure to have a White Hot American Summer right through the end of the season and into the Fall (and maybe even the Winter). And, of course, make sure to finish the Summer off right by watching Wet Hot American Summer!

    Tony Bowls TS21302

    Tony Bowls Shorts style TS21302 is a strapless chiffon short a-line cocktail dress with a sweetheart neckline, center gathered bodice with knot accent, hand-beaded natural waistline, and a softly gathered skirt. It's a sweet and sophisticated look for a summer formal event or even Homecoming.

    Night Moves 6603

    Illusion and sheer fabric has been all over the red carpet lately, and we especially love the look when paired with black or white. The combo exudes both sexiness and elegance, and Ciara certainly proved that lately at the VMAs! To wear the look in the Summertime or at Homecoming, we love Night Moves style 6603. It's a short cocktail dress that has an illusion Continue reading

  • Perfect Neon Ombre Looks for #ManicureMonday

    Last week we talked about great summer nail trends to try out, and two of them that we're loving are neon and ombre. Well, this #ManicureMonday we're combining those two trends, because it doesn't get much better than a look with both neon AND ombre in it! We've been loving all of the ways you can rock neon in your outfits and on your nails, but with ombre being such a big hit lately, too, we asked...why separate the trends?? So, here's something we've been completely obsessing over: the neon ombre manicure! And, best yet, if you're looking to pair your new neon ombre nails with your next formal outfit, read on for our favorite match-ups.

    With prom season ending and summer just beginning, Rissy Roo’s is now preparing for yet another busy homecoming season. The upcoming fall collections by top formal wear designers like Sherri Hill, Jovani, and Tony Bowls are the newest additions to their online store at https://rissyroos.com.

When it comes to the latest trends, the store is continuously updated to not only suit every type of social occasion, but every kind of individual style, as well.

    Homecoming season is just as big as prom season. With all of the new arrivals coming in, the new school year is definitely going to start off in style. Formal wear designers really stepped it up a notch with their new Fall 2013 styles and designs. One of the biggest trends coming back this fall is the one shoulder look. A stylish way that this trend is making an appearance in designers’ fall lines is as part of sequin dresses. Marissa Sharp, owner of Rissy Roo’s, explains, "Sequin dresses are timeless. You can never go wrong with a sparkly dress. Not just for homecoming but for any formal occasion." This timeless piece combined with the eye-catching one shoulder trend gives it a whole new, unique look. A great example of this trend that can be found at Rissy Roo’s is Shail K's stunning one sleeve cocktail dress style KK3157. This dress showcases an intricate beading design throughout the entire dress, with a chunky jewel detail at the wrist. It’s a perfect combination of the classic look with an edgy twist for a number of different formal events.

    A look that will never go out of trend for homecoming or prom is the baby doll style dress. Browsing through the Rissy Roo’s website immediately allows one to see that this holds true, as it is one of the most popular looks in the new Fall 2013 lines of designers like Clarisse, Sherri Hill, and Mac Duggal. Baby doll style dresses are flattering on all body types, which is part of the reason the style has stayed so popular. A homecoming baby doll dress that’s bound to turn heads is Clarisse style 2016, which is available at Rissy Roo’s. This dress has a beautiful sweetheart neckline, a flirty tulle skirt, and delicate crystal and sequin detailing throughout. The sequins and crystals line the neckline and fall vertically down to the waistline, where the dress then flares out into a tulle skirt. It is the perfect dress to give girls the confidence to start the new school year off right.

    Clarisse 2016

    Sheer is an up-and-coming trend that started to make an appearance this Prom 2013 season, and is sure to be one of the most popular styles for Homecoming 2013. Sharp explained, "It’s a classy way to show off some skin." The style was first made popular for Prom 2013 by Sherri Hill, and now designers like Jovani, Mac Duggal, and Mori Lee are making sheer big parts of their collections, as well. One dress at Rissy Roo’s that’s sure to be popular this coming Homecoming season is Sherri Hill Style 8525 cocktail dress. This fun and flirty cocktail dress has a beautiful sheer high neck top, sheer cut-out style back, and a bodice fully covered in sequins.

  • Avril Lavigne Looking Pretty at Prom in "Here's To Never Growing Up"

    Avril Lavigne recently came out with a new single called "Here's to Never Growing Up," and we're loving not only the song, but the video, too! The song's all about having fun, and the video is set at a senior prom, so we automatically fell in love!

    Check out the video below:

    http://youtu.be/sXd2WxoOP5g

    When it comes to prom, of course Avril still doesn't lose her punk rock look. We love the short light blue dress she wore in the video - it matched her eyes so perfectly!

    Avril-Lavigne---Heres-to-Never-Growing-Up-Music-Video

    For a similar look to Avirl's short prom dress look, we love Sherri Hill style 21156. It's one of Sherri Hill's newest styles that's not only perfect for prom, but homecoming, too! The grey accenting, paired with lace and jewel detailing is so punk that it couldn't be any more Avril Lavigne inspired! It also comes in dark red and navy colors that are super punk, too.

    We are especially oogling over Avril's new single and video, though, because it looks like she's taking a step back to her roots! The music video reminded us of when she first came onto the scene 11 years ago as the punk rock princess that everyone came to love her for. The video was full of people spraying graffiti, a group crashing a pool in their prom outfits, and wrecking the school with chairs flying, confetti everywhere, and of course Avril on her skateboard.

    Welcome back, Avril! We can't wait to hear more songs from your new album!

  • ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Season 4 Premiere: A is for A-l-i-v-e

    Pretty Little Liars is back, and with a vengeance, for its Season 4 Premiere! The episode, which aired on June 11, was called "A is for A-l-i-v-e," and it definitely got our hearts racing, as usual. Marlene King, executive producer, promised that this would be the "season of answers," and she definitely wasn't kidding around! The premiere episode already cleared up almost every "A" related question that's still been lingering around, while still adding a dozen more to the list!

    pretty-little-liars-season-4-episode-1

    We don't want to ruin the episode for those fans who haven't watched it yet, so we'll leave it at that, and instead focus on what else, but the fashion! Black's always been a big Pretty Little Liars color, but we especially loved it in this episode! All of the girls were wearing cute little black dresses (except for Hanna Marin, played by Ashley Benson, who added a totally chic sheer long skirt to her look), with sexy high heels to match. We loved the dresses so much that we picked out our favorite black cocktail dresses. Now you can rock these PLL style to your next event! And, since little black dresses never go out of style, don't be afraid to stock up on these looks! Continue reading

It's all about picking the right fabric. We selected some of our favorite "wrinkle free" holiday dresses that will make your life and packing a lot easier.
