  • The Great Gatsby Fashion Inspiration

    The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, and Joel Edgerton, finally hit theatres, and it's gotten us obsessing over everything 1920s! Baz Luhrmann's reinterpretation was released on May 10, 2013, and everyone is talking nonstop about everything from the music to the glitz and glamour of the period. But, there's of course one thing that has us girls at Rissy Roo's stuck in Gatsby fever: the clothes!

  • What to Wear to After Prom Parties

    We've been dishing out tip after tip on how to make sure you have the perfect prom. From dress trends, to celebrity style, to hairstyles, to nail looks...but the night doesn't end with prom, of course! There's after prom, too, and it's just as important to make sure you find the perfect outfit to wear for your post prom events.

    When prom ends and the after parties begin, it's time to throw on an outfit that's more fun, flirty, and comfortable, but still has you sparkling all night long! Wearing cute cocktail dresses have been a popular trend the past couple of years, which we absolutely love...why let the glam stop at prom?? Just make sure that the dress doesn't compete with your prom dress - your prom dress should be your big outfit of the night. Below are our favorite frocks that will have you looking glamorous from prom to after-prom.

    Jovani 74005

    Jovani style 74005 is so fun and funky, and so perfect for spring and summer with its cutout features and open back. It definitely has that extra party-girl edge!

    Hannah S 27796

     Hannah S style 27796 is an elastic bandage dress that is sure to be a comfortable choice, while still being figure flattering. We love the bright blue color (it also comes in a bright pink) - it's a perfect way to channel the spirit of spring in a chic way!

    La Femme 18110

    Just looking for something simple, but stylish to wear? Rocking a little black dress is always a staple choice. We love La Femme style 18110 because it's made of a stretch net mesh fabric that is sure to be a comfortable choice. The dress also comes in blue, red, and nude, so if you'd like to wear a bold color on a more simple dress, that's always a fun choice, too!

    Whatever you decide to wear to After Prom, just make sure that you have lots of fun!

  • What to Wear to a Spring Formal

    Spring is here, and that means it's time for lots and lots of college formal events. Whether attending your school's formal or a sorrority or fraternity formal, it's definitely a time to be dressed to the nines! Before you even begin to start shopping, double-check the dress code and determine if the event is a formal or semi-formal. One great way to make sure you're buying the right outfit is to talk to upperclassmen who have attended the events before and ask what they've worn. If it's a semi-formal event, a cocktail dress is a great option. If the invitation says formal or black tie, it may be more appropriate to wear a full-length gown. Either way, it's always fun to dress up!

    Below are four dresses that we love for college formal events: two cocktail dresses for a semi-formal, and two full-length gowns for a formal event.

    Spring Semi-Formal Event

    Shail K. is a great designer to look at for cute, sexy cocktail dresses. The designer has two dresses that we absolutely love for spring formal events: style SK3195 and style SK3823.

    Shail K sk3195

    Shail K. style SK3195 has a hand beaded ombre pattern that's just gorgeous. The black, blue, purple color makes it perfect to wear any time of the year, so you can definitely get multiple uses out of this dress.

    Shail K sk3823

    With pastels being so in this season, Shail K SK3823 couldn't be any more perfect for Spring with the two colors it comes in: Peach (shown above) and Nude. The flowing layers and satin accentuated waist give the look of beauty and power, and the translucent fabric around the neck and sides let enough sexy peek through while keeping the untouchable aura of a goddess!

    Spring Formal Event

    For sexy formal gowns that aren't as glitz and glam as prom dresses can be, there are two designers that we love: Sherri Hill and La Femme. Both have evening gowns that are so perfect for a variety of formal or black tie affairs.

    Sherri Hill 8510

    Sherri Hill style 8510 is our favorite evening gown for Springtime. It's a simple yet elegant strapless sweetheart dress that has intricate beaded detail. We especially love the subtle high-low look on the dress. You'll also have a variety of colors to choose from that are all so perfect for springtime: Strawberry (shown above), Ivory, Pink, Purple, Turquoise, and Yellow!

    La Femme 18713

    La Femme style 18713 is a beautiful figure flattering dress with intricate beading on the bodice and soft gathers at the waist. The beading gives it such an elegant look, while not being over the top. The dress comes in a variety of different colors, such as Peacock (pictured above), Purple, Nude, Light Lime, and Peach. If your event is a black tie affair, this dress in Black is a perfect option.

  • Pretty Pastels and Lace to wear on Easter and Passover

    Move over winter, Spring is officially here, and it's time to celebrate Easter and Passover to ring in the warmer weather! Even though it's still a little nippy out, there's no better time to get in the Spring spirit than Easter and Passover time. While it's always necessary to look fashionable, it's also important to wear ensembles that are reasonably conservative since you'll be around family members.

    Pastel hues, florals, and lace are so in this Spring, so we picked our favorite looks for Easter and Passover. The dresses we chose are from Sherri Hill and Dave & Johnny because these designers always make great dresses that are perfect for a variety of different occasions. No matter where your spring holiday plans take you, these fancy frocks will not only have you in perfect fashionista form, but you can easily wear them right through the rest of the season (and even into summer!).

    Sherri Hill 2941

    Our absolute favorite dress for the Spring holidays is Sherri Hill style 2941. Of course, Kylie Jenner looks amazing in it, but that's not the only reason we love this dress so much! This ornately embroidered mini dress is so perfect for Easter - the cap sleeves make the dress family appropriate and the lace gives it such an elegant look. We especially love the Blush color it comes in for Spring, but it also comes in plenty of other colors, too, if pink isn't your first choice.

    Sherri Hill 21131

    Another dress that we love from this designer is Sherri Hill style 21131. This short, banded dress is so perfect for any occassion - from nights out with friends, to formal events. If you plan on wearing this for Easter, we just recommend that you pair it with a cardigan to give it a more conservative look.

    Dave and Johnny 8679

    Dave & Johnny style 8679 is a short pink dress with lace overlay throughout that's easy to dress up or down depending on the event you're attending. It's a simple, but feminine look that's perfect for the Springtime.

    Dave and Johnny 8472

    Dave & Johnny style 8472 is another cocktail dress that's great for Easter and Passover. The dress is covered with a floral lace overlay, and the waist is accented with a ribbon detail that ties to the side. It's such an on-trend feminine look, and works especially well if your event is on the more formal side.

    No matter which number you choose, we recommend pairing the dress with a cute cardigan. Depending on how formal your event is, it's always good to have the option of covering up your shoulders. And, of course, since it's still a little cold out, it will keep you warmer!

  • Green for St. Patrick's Day

    St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner, and that means it's time to put lots of green on! We love this holiday of course because it's a perfect excuse to wear a cute dress. When it comes to showing some St. Paddy's Day pride, your look doesn't have to be head-to-toe green, but with Emerald Green being the 2013 Color of the Year, could you ask for a better time to show off your on-trend style? We didn't think so. Nothing says St. Patrick's Day better than a Little Green Dress, so check out our favorites for the holiday below!

    Our favorite dress for St. Patrick's day is Sherri Hill style 21131 in lime green. The neon green color is so perfect for standing out in the sea of green that you're bound to be in on this day, and the bandage fabric is super figure flattering. Best of all, since neon is so on-trend right now, it's the perfect dress to wear time and time again in the spring and summer months.

    If neon isn't your thing and you'd rather go with a darker green dress, La Femme style 15907 is a great option.  It's a net pleated short dress with a V shaped front and back. The toned-down green color makes it easy to wear for any other event you may have once St. Patrick's Day has come and gone.

    Want to rock the Color of the Year, Emerald Green? Sparkle style 71192 is not only good for that, but also for getting two looks in one! This fun and flirty hi-lo cocktail dress features a strapless neckline, all over sequin body and a removable short tulle over-skirt with a satin bow at the waist. What a perfect way to not only have a dress for St. Paddy's Day, but to rock the on-trend look at Prom, too!

    Hopefully this St. Patrick's Day will be a warm one, but if it's cold, wearing black stockings with your dress is a great way to finish off the look and stay a little warmer for the day.

  • What to Wear to a Sweetheart Dance

    Valentine's Day time of course also means it's Sweetheart Dance time! Having trouble figuring out what to wear to your Sweetheart Dance? Since it's an event to celebrate Valentine's Day, we recommend picking a red or pink dress. Purple or white are also great colors to choose if you want to show some Valentine's Day love but don't like the traditional red or pink. If those four hues don't work for you, black is always a staple color that you can wear to any event!

    As far as the type of dress goes, choose a strapless/sleeveless cocktail dress. You can either go with the traditional fitted cocktail dress, or choose one that flares out at the waist for a more flowy look. We picked out our favorite Valentine's Day dresses for a Sweetheart Dance below and put them into a cute Polyvore set to give you some ideas on what to wear! You can also click here for more Valentine's Day dresses.
