  • Lovely Lea Michele at the 2014 Kids Choice Awards

    The 2014 Kids Choice Awards were just a few days ago, and they were so fun to watch! Two of our favorite girls of the year, Ariana Grande and Jennifer Lawrence, took the show bringing home so many orange blimps! Ariana took home a blimp for her show Sam and Cat, and also took one home for Favorite TV Actress. J. Law had the big win of the night with 3 blimps: 1 for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire as Favorite Movie, Favorite Movie Actress, and Favorite Female Buttkicker! Congrats, Girls!

    As you know, the show wasn't all we were watching, though. Our eyes were glued to the Red...ahem...Orange Carpet watching all of the lady celebrities strut their style. Our favorite dressed girl of the night was undoubtedly the lovely Lea Michele. She looked so gorgeous in her coral color lace short dress there was no doubt in our heads that she was our favorite look of the night!

    Plus, she had such a fun time honing her inner Marylin Monroe that how could you not love her??

    Another reason we love her Kids Choice Awards look? Because it's so easy (and so in style) to copy for Prom 2014! For a Lea Michele dress look, there's two La Femme dresses that we're loving - check them out below:

    La Femme style 20386 is an adorable strapless tulle dress with a ruffled hem. The bodice is covered with lace and scattered jewels, making this dress so celeb glam!

    La Femme 20386 hot coral

    La Femme style 19160 is all over lace! This v-neck sequin cocktail dress with a criss cross ruched bodice seems simple, but has so much detail to it. Multi shaped iridescent stones adorn the neckline and straps to give it an extra bit if sparkle.

    La Femme 19160 hot coral

    Whether one of these dresses, or another short coral dress that you love, have fun accessorizing just like Lea, too! We loved that Lea kept the jewelry to a minimum and chose to brighten up the whole look with neon pink lipstick. Such a perfect combo and unique way to rock the coral color!

  • The Best and Worst Dressed at the 2014 People's Choice Awards

    The 40th annual People's Choice Awards aired this week and while we we're super happy for all of the celebs who won, we were more excited about the beautiful dresses we got to see! Many stars shined and blew us away with their dresses, however, not every celeb hit a home run. Below are the best & worst dressed of the 2014 PCA's!

    worst-show-hosts-and-2-broke-girls-co-stars-kat-dennings-and-beth-behrs-went-conservative-for-the-red-carpetWORST: Let's start with the amazing hosts and stars of the popular series 2 Broke Girls.. Beth Behrs and Kat Dennings! The girls are HILARIOUS and always look great on the show. However, we think that the dresses above just aren't very flattering on them. They both have AMAZING bodies and should've worn something fitted. Beth's white dress is "blah" and doesn't have any pizzaz to it. She could've rocked something tight and maybe even hi-lo to show off those long legs. Kat's dress definitely suits her but the harsh black color makes her Continue reading

  • Fashion Police: Dressing for Your Body Type

    Just because a clothing item is trendy or expensive does not always mean it looks good. You've probably heard it time and time again - "dress according to your body type." Well, it's the truth! 

    Your Body Type

    To figure out how to best dress for your body time, it's always helpful to take a cue from celebrities. Let's take Kim Kardashian for example. This girl has every top designer at her fingertips, yet she is a repeat offender of wearing unflattering, tight, clothing. Don't get us wrong, we love Kim K. and her curves! She definitely has impeccable taste, and when she gets it right she looks stunning.

    However, one thing Kim seems to forget is that dressing for your body type is major. You do not want to end up with camel toe, a wardrobe malfunction or swollen feet. It's very important to keep your look classy and sexy and show off those curves in style. You can see Kim at her best looking classy in cocktail dresses above, and her forgetting the meaning of fashion in the images of her swollen and peplum outfit below.

    With that said, one celeb that always gets it right and is a personal favorite of ours at Rissy Roo's is Beyonce. Why? Because she is always polished and looking amazing, no matter where she is heading!

    Just like Beyonce (and sometimes Kim K), when picking out that PERFECT outfit, whether it be a shirt, jeans, dress, or shoes, take into account YOUR body type. There are many different body types, so it's most important to figure out exactly what your body type is and read up on the best and most flattering ways to dress for it.

    For example, women with the hourglass body tend to wear form-fitting clothes. This can look amazing (and who doesn't want to show off their curves?!), but ladies, we need to leave a little to the imagination, as well! There is a fine line between classy and trashy - especially when it comes to showing off those curves. This tends to be where Kim K. falls short when dressing up - she wears clothes that show off her hourglass figure, but aren't necessarily figure flattering. Marilyn Monroe said it many years ago, and her thoughts still hold true today: "Your clothes should be tight enough to show you're a woman but loose enough to show you're a lady."Marilyn Monroe quote

    But, there are some rules that hold true for all body types! I have found that NO MATTER what body shape you have, making your legs look longer is most often very flattering. Depending on your height, you can easily alter the way your legs look by choosing dresses and skirts that fall at certain lengths on your thighs. You can also pick shirt lengths to help lengthen your torso, and certain pants styles that can help give you a figure-flattering look, all depending on the type of legs you have.

    One rule to always keep in mind: no matter what you're wearing, make sure that you're comfortable with your look! Confidence is key to looking your best, and comfort is one important way to make sure that your confidence is high! And, always remember: beauty comes in many shapes and sizes!

  • Jacquie Lee Wearing Sherri Hill on The Voice

    We're so happy that this week Jacquie Lee made it to the Final 3 on The Voice, but we're still stuck on her performance from last week! Last Monday, Jacquie was one of the Top 6 to perform on The Voice, where she blew the crowd away singing "Cry Baby" by Janis Joplin and "The Voice Within," which was dedicated to her coach, Christina Aguilera.

    Her beautiful singing voice wasn't the only reason we were blown away by Jacquie, though. The dresses she wore were just so beautiful! Not only that, but you can wear them, too, because they were by dress designer Sherri Hill! Check out what she wore below - they're perfect looks for an upcoming Holiday party or for Prom.

    Jacquie Lee in Sherri Hill 11068 The two-piece gown that she wore while singing "Cry Baby" is Sherri Hill style 11068, one of designer's newest looks for Prom 2014! It's a brilliantly designed evening gown with a beaded high neck sleeveless top and a long slim skirt with a beaded waist. The top and skirt sit at just the right place around your waist to give a figure-flattering look. And, it's definitely an elegant way to wear the hot crop top look for a formal event, showing just the right amount of skin. Best yet, it's a style that can be worn to a number of different events, whether a formal holiday party or prom.

    Jacquie Lee in Sherri Hill 4304

    Jacquie also belted her heart out singing "The Voice Within" in the elegant cocktail dress Sherri Hill style 4304. It's a beautifully beaded cocktail dress that features an intricately beaded bodice, cap sleeves, and a high neckline. Definitely just as elegant of a look as style 11068, just in a shorter style! It's a perfect look for any holiday formal or semi-formal event, or even Homecoming!

    Did you love the Sherri Hill dresses that Jacquie wore as much as us? Leave us a comment below and let us know!
