  • Get Ready for your Winter and Holiday Formals with A Roo Girl!

    The most exciting part of having an upcoming event is picking out the perfect outfit, which goes far beyond just the dress. You also have to make sure you have the perfect hairstyle, make up, and shoes to truly complete your outfit! Because of all these important aspects of putting an outfit together, sometimes it can turn into a lengthy process, especially if you have no idea where to start! So, we're going to show you how we get ready for our special events in four easy steps! Read on for easy steps to get ready for a winter inspired dance or formal event.

    Step 1: Pick which dress length you would feel most comfortable in. Since you're going to a formal event, you'll be walking, sitting and probably dancing. Therefore, you want to choose a dress that doesn't keep you from the fun! And, of course, one that you love!

    Blush style 9800We chose Blush 9800, a floor-length, powder blue/nude mermaid gown!

    Step 2: Now that you've picked your perfect dress, it's time to move onto shoes. We tend to go with heels for most formal events, but if you're not comfortable wearing heels you could always go with a dressy pair of flats, especially if you plan on wearing a long gown that will hide the shoes anyway! Listed below are Sizzle by Coloriffics Andes and Touch Ups Dale - two shoes that we'd love to wear with Blush 9800!

    If you want to go with fancy flats, Sweetie's Anne Ballet Flat is a great choice! They are the perfect shoe to sweeten up any social occasion dress, and with them coming in 3 different colors: Black, Nude, and Silver, there's definitely one to match your dress. Continue reading

  • Summer Appropriate Ways to Wear Sequins

    Sequins are always the go-to look for the holidays and often get put on the back burner once summer rolls around. But, with summer being the brightest time of year, is there really a better time to be wearing sparkles?? We don't think so! So, with the warm weather finally on its way, we're here to help show you how to bring sequins into your summer outfits for a whole new, unique look.

    When it comes to sequins in the summertime, we recommend to keep it simple and specific to only one item within your outfit. So, if you're wearing a sequin dress, make sure your accessories don't have sequins. Or, if you accessorize with a sequin purse or shoes, keep your clothes summer casual. This is a great way to wear the trend during the summer months without going overboard. Check out our favorite ways to stylize sparkles for the summer below!

    Blush 9667

    One of our favorite way to wear sequins in the summer time is with white! White is undoubtedly the go-to summer color, so it will give the sequins a super on-trend look for the season. Our favorite cocktail dress to get the look is Blush style 9667. Shiny white-gold paisleys rock in a flared skirt with a corset back in this gorgeous short dress. With the paisley white detailing, it's the perfect chic way to rock sequins in the summer.

    La Regale 21016 sequin clutch

    Carrying a sequin clutch with a bright summery outfit is a great way to add a touch of glam to your look. La Regale style 21016 is a sparkly clutch that can compliment a number of different looks, from daytime to nighttime.

    La Femme 18710

    If you have a formal event to attend this summer and are looking for a gown, we recommend choosing one where sequins are more understated. Depending on the event, choosing a completely sequined gown may be too holiday reminiscent for the summer.  One sequined gown that we love for the summertime is La Femme style 18710. It's an empire waist chiffon gown with a criss-cross sequined patterned sweetheart neckline and small diamond shaped open back. The sequined bodice adds the perfect amount of sparkle, while the flowy chiffon fabric is perfect for summertime.

    However you decide to wear sequins in the summertime, you'll sparkle as much as the sun. Most importantly, you'll show everyone that whether winter or summer, sequins are always a way to look on-trend.

  • Clutch Necessities

    Dress?...Check! Shoes?...Check! Jewelry?...Check! Hmm...what's left?

    A clutch! It's the one thing that will pull your whole look together and of course hold all of your necessities. Since you won't be bringing a regular sized purse with you, you can't bring everything you own! It's important to be prepared...but you also don't want to over pack. So, to make it easier for you to decide what to bring and what to leave out, we went through the must-haves for a perfectly packed clutch. Listed below are the necessities - besides "feminine products" - you'll need to bring with you for the biggest night of the year!

    Powder Finish

    Makeup is part of getting all dolled up. Making it last all night is a task, so make sure you bring some back-up to keep it from running and to retouch your makeup. A loose powder finish is ideal to carry in your clutch. Here's a tip from the pros at Teen Vogue:

    "Packing a powder is something I battle with a lot because of all the teeny tiny clutches on the red carpet. But if you tend to be really shiny, you can just take a little bit of loose powder and put it on your powder puff before wrapping it in a tissue. Use that instead of carrying around a big compact!"

    Blotting Papers

    Another way to keep your face looking fresh is using blotting sheets. They work wonders on shiny and oily skin. Here's another Teen Vogue pro tip that we love:

    "Obviously they're great for reducing shine, but you can also use them to blot your lips. And if your eyelids tend to get a little oily, you can use them there too, so your eye makeup doesn't start creasing."

    You can find the ones shown above at your local Sephora store!

    Lipstick or Lip Gloss

    You're going to be eating, drinking, and talking all night...so you may find that your lip color is struggling to last through it all. Add lipstick or lip gloss to your clutch like the one shown above from Mac! If you don't feel like retouching your lips all night, try sticking with a lip stain. It should last all night!

    Bring in backup for your Hair

    If you have an updo, or even a half-up/half-down look, it's a great idea to bring backup bobby pins. You'll never know how your hair is going to turn out by the end of the night, especially if you're probably going to be busting a move on the dance floor!

    Don't Forget Your Camera!

    Remember to bring your camera to capture all the moments to look back at the good times! You'll of course want to have memories of how fab you looked!

    If you're still looking for that perfect clutch to go with your gown, here's information on the clutches that we used in our Polyvore set above:

    1. Helen's Heart Style FP 2919 Black Clutch - Organza bow clutch with rhinestone detail and a kiss lock closure.

    2. La Regale 27058 Chain Mail Clutch - Metal mesh clutch from La Regale with an optional strap. The rhinestone closure adds an extra touch of sparkle to this evening bag.

  • Trend Setter - Picking the Perfect Handbag

    Every woman knows that accessorizing with a certain handbag can make or break an outfit.  While certain bags are always in fashion, different occasions call for different purses.  One of the biggest fashion faux-pas is picking out a bag without considering what you’ll be using it for and if it will look good with your body type.

    The first question you need to ask yourself is “When will I be using this handbag?”  If you can’t think of a certain occasion, or time of day when you’ll be using it, then chances are it will wind up collecting dust at the bottom of your closet.  Buying a new bag is a legitimate commitment, so you shouldn’t put in the funds unless you are completely sure you will get some use out of it.

    When it comes to picking a handbag for a certain event, the basic rule is to save the bigger bag for daytime and stick to smaller, clutch-sized bags at night.  Smaller bags won’t get in your way during a social night with friends, and are easy to keep close to you in a crowded bar or club.  A small clutch would be perfect for a night out to dinner, while a small purse with long straps would be great for strolling on the boardwalk.
