  • 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.

  • Breaking Dawn Part 2 Premiere - Madrid

    We're so excited about the release of Breaking Dawn Part 2 here at Rissy Roo's that we've decided to make it Twilight Week! We've been watching the Twilight stars going from premiere to premiere across the world, and we are obsessed with all of the outfits Kristen Stewart has been wearing. Our latest favorites were her Madrid premiere outfits - we thought her form fitting, simple dresses were a great contrast to her Los Angeles outfit.

    Like we showed you a few days ago with the outfits the Twilight stars wore at the Los Angeles premiere, if you want to bring Kristen's red carpet looks into your formal wear, read on to find your perfect look-alike dress.

     

     At the Breaking Dawn Part 2 Madrid photocall (on November 5, 2012), she wore a navy and white short dress. The gold embellishments at the neckline made the dress really stand out, but our favorite part was the color blocked detailing that accented the curves of her figure so well!

    Get Kristen's color blocking look and show off your curves with the below dresses from Clarisse and La Femme. You can always also add a bib style necklace to really make your outfit stand out!

    A. Clarisse Style 1414 - A fitted strapless dress with white stripes on the sides. Best yet, it's on sale for $130!

    B. La Femme Style 15983 - A trendy mini halter top all over sequined dress. The side panels are see-through sheer, which adds a little different take to the color blocking trend.

    C. La Femme Style 16368 - Short ruche net strapless dress with jewel incrusted front.

    The dress she wore to the actual Madrid movie premiere was a short, fitted neon yellow number. Neon was the hit trend of the summer, so we love that she brought it into the Fall!

    Stand out in the crowd with these short neon yellow dresses from Clarisse, Hannah S, and Mac Duggal. 

    D. Hannah S Style 27666 - A short dress with a strapless shirred tulle bodice and full skirt, beaded waistband, and embroidered sequin trim.

    E. Clarisse Style 2041 - A fitted, stretch-jersey dress with stones over sheer netting.

    F. Homecoming by Mac Duggal 6389N - A one shoulder ruffled dress with a fun and flirty tiered layered skirt and a waistband accented with jeweled detail.

  • Floral Prints – Don’t You Forget About Me

    Floral Print Dress ClassicDecorating our clothing with flowers has been a tradition for hundreds of year.  Originating in Asia, large floral prints on women’s kimonos represented natural beauty and femininity.  Europeans, fascinated by this culture, adapted floral prints for their own society during the renaissance.  It became a fashion statement for upper class women to wear dresses made from luxurious fabrics covered in beautiful flower patterns.

    During the 1940s, floral dresses became the most popular trend.  Looking back to that time, it’s impossible not to picture women without their wavy curls, pearl earrings, and flower printed frocks.   How Retro says that “As fashion seasons come and go, floral dresses rise and fall in popularity yet have remained a constant in women's clothes.”  The delicate qualities of the flower makes wearing a floral print seem truly feminine.

    “This season is all about the power of flower print,” announced Jovani in their recent newsletter.  Runway trends are all about pastel and neon colors, with “garden-inspired” prints being used in new and unique ways.  Whether you’re looking for a casual dress, or something more formal, you’ll be able to find a floral dress for the occasion.  Pick an accent color from one of the flowers to match your accessories and makeup, and your outfit will be a hit.  It looks like this classic style is here to stay!
