  • Art Deco Inspired Look for Homecoming

    Homecoming Season is coming up! You can tailor your look for Homecoming in many ways, like the Gothic Lolita for example. It’s a stylized take on the turn of the century vintage vogue with exaggerated puffy materials. Big bold floral patterns and lace edges can be very 80s Madonna inspired. Especially if you do hard accessories like a leather cuff or short booties. You can put big lace and tulle skirts together with contrasting accessories, like cowboy boots for example. There is also the Art deco inspired look. A classic style with geometric designs and heavy embellishment. Girls are getting very creative at making these styles all their own. There is a dress out there for you. Whether you want to reveal or conceal, any way you are most comfortable, today there really are no rules.

    One impression to consider is the polished mode of the art deco movement. The tendency for this look to reemerge time and again is expected. Designers thrive when they pull their creativity from art trends in history. Art Deco is  both new and old, modern and understated.

    If you are looking to do something bold, classic and completely chic, think about the art deco style. Vintage is making a comeback. Artists and Designers from the Art Nouveau are serving as design inspiration for contemporary looks for formal dresses. Graphic prints and embellished details in the bodice and sleeve, these are ideas that come from the cusp between the bohemian and art deco eras. If you ever peruse an art history book, you may recognize styles of dress from the subjects featured in works by Degas, Klimt and Sargent.

    Turn on your inner fashionista and think back to the quality dresses Carrie Bradshaw wore on Sex and the City: bold prints, soft neutrals and always some sparkleversace mille feuille dress gallery art deco inspired look. Seek out embroidered bodice, cap sleeve, flowing skirts and a mix of jewel tones and soft pastels. These elements come into play with today's fashions for the first reception of the year. There is a fun mix of pieces that refer back to the deco period of the 1920s, and dress forms that harken back to the 1950s. There is a variety of styles available, but the classic forms of the Art Deco era keep coming back in sleek and stylized ways.

This is a fitted and sexy vegan leather jacket with multiple zippers and stretch panels. We love it because it can work in 2 different ways - as a stand-alone jacket for the warmer days (like in the spring or fall), or just rock it as an extra layer with your warmer jacket on top for those colder winter days. And, for only $86, it couldn't be a more affordable jacket.

    2. Animal Print Purse

    Leopard Print Purse e7518-blk_1We LOVE animal print at Rissy Roo's! And, what better way to rock it than in a purse?

So, we're sure the lucky gal who gets this as a gift will find many uses for it! And, for only $32, you can even stuff it with smaller gifts for an extra surprise, like lip gloss or a key chain.

  • 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!

  • New Year's Eve Party Themes

    With New Year's Eve only 4 days away, it's definitely time to get your party plans together! Whether you're holding your own party, or attending someone else's, it can be fun to have a theme. Party City recently put together a list of NYE party themes that we thought were cute ideas to spice up the normal New Year's party. Whether you're looking for a theme for your own party, or if you know that one of your friends will be having one at theirs, we paired some sexy cocktail dresses with our favorite Party City NYE party ideas.

    Want to stick with the classic New Year's Eve look? You definitely can't go wrong by keeping with tradition and going with a black, silver, and gold party theme. As far as dressing for the occasion, a classic little black dress is always perfect, but it can be fun to dress it up a bit with silver or gold accenting either on the dress or with your accessories. We love Primavera style 9625 for a traditional NYE look - it's a cute strapless dress with silver and black sequins.

    Looking for something a little more funky for New Year's Eve? There's definitely no better night to let your wild side out! Don't be afraid to shake things up with fun spots and stripes in your party's theme and on your outfit. Animal print dresses are always a sexy staple for any girl's closet, so it's a dress you won't have trouble finding multiple uses for. We love Xcite style 30375 and Jovani style 9866 cocktail dresses to get the animal print look for NYE.

    Just want to add some bright colors to your New Year's Eve? Go with a "Midnight Mystery" theme and fill your night with bold blues, purples, oranges and reds. There's plenty of multicolor dresses you can pick from, but we love Hannah S. style 27781 for a fun and flirty look.

  • Trend Setter – The Hourglass Dress

    This Fall there’s a new shape to fashion: The Hourglass.  Dresses this season are taking a step back in time to the prim fit that used to rule the world.  No longer just a vintage style from the 40s and 50s, The Hourglass Dress is hitting the mainstream.

    The Hourglass Dress accentuates the bust and hips.  This fashion is known as the woman’s best friend, allowing you to show off your natural curves.  While there are stick thin models walking the runways, the real trend is feeling confident and comfortable in whatever shape you’re in.

    The 50’s fit gets an update this Fall with new modern prints and accessories.  Even if you don’t have an hourglass figure, like most of us, you can still pull off the Hourglass Dress.  Wear a blazer, jacket, or cardigan with your dress to give it a more modern feel, and add on a belt to your outfit for a cinched waist look.  Thick or thin belts worn at the waist will give you the hourglass look.
