We're sure you're deep in holiday 2014 shopping, but Pantone, the world-renowned authority on color, is one step ahead of you and is ready to bring on 2015!

    Marsala is the Pantone Color of the Year 2015

    Never heard of the color Marsala before? It's a deep red that will surely get you even more into the Holiday 2014 mood! Pantone describes it as:

    "A naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls....The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors."

    Whether rocking this color for the holidays, prom, or any other semi-formal or formal event, this is definitely a color to stand out in. Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, described, "Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth."

  • Makeup Monday: Brazil Beauty Trends!

    It's time for Makeup Monday Brazil Beauty Trends! With Brazil as the official host of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the gorgeous country has been an inspiration for fashion and beauty trends all over the world. Full of bronzed beauties and bright colors, it is no wonder this season's best makeup and beauty trends are bold, vivid hues and beach worthy looks! Here are few of our favorites to turn you into a Brazilian bombshell before you know it!

    Neon Nails

    It is always fun to rock a neon manicure, but it's not always appropriate. Sometimes neon polishes can be too aggressive, which is why you need to choose wisely. However, OPI recently launched a 12 color collection inspired by the Brazil fever with bold polishes that aren't too over powering. We love the bright yellow, subtle not so neon "I Just Can't Cope-acabana."

    Vibrant Timesavers

    Summer is supposed to be about effortless beauty so we spend more time on the beach and less time getting ready to dance the night away...or at least that is the energy we get from Brasil! We love easy makeup products like The Santigolden Age Double-Ended Limitless Liner by Smashbox. It has two ends with two color options, and the creamy pencil is not only super easy to apply, but lasts 8 hours! Amazing!

    Go Bronze

    Although all of us wish we could spend everyday at the beach, sometimes it isn't that realistic, or healthy for the matter. While catching some rays in moderation has great health benefits, it can be difficult to get that dark bronze glow without overdoing it. Have no fear ladies, because amazing self-tanners are here to save the day! Our hand down, all time favorite at Rissy Roo's is the Self Tan Lux Oil by St. Tropez. Good news: it keeps your skin super soft with an awesome bronze glow that lasts and looks like you put in some serious hours in the sand. Bad news: it's kind of pricey, about $50 for a 3.38 oz bottle. However, you do not need to apply much and it will save your skin from harsh UV rays and wrinkles down the line!

    Even though these trends are Brazil inspired, we want to see how our Roo Girls wear them! Have any Brazil beauty tips you tried or want to share?

  • White Hot American Summer

    Labor Day Weekend is upon us, and the official first day of Fall may be only a month away, but it's still Summer and we have a lot more sun to still take in! Plus, with how popular the white trend has been, Labor Day definitely won't be the last day you can rock the color for this year! That's why we're picking out our favorite white cocktail dresses so you can make sure to have a White Hot American Summer right through the end of the season and into the Fall (and maybe even the Winter). And, of course, make sure to finish the Summer off right by watching Wet Hot American Summer!

    Tony Bowls TS21302

    Tony Bowls Shorts style TS21302 is a strapless chiffon short a-line cocktail dress with a sweetheart neckline, center gathered bodice with knot accent, hand-beaded natural waistline, and a softly gathered skirt. It's a sweet and sophisticated look for a summer formal event or even Homecoming.

    Night Moves 6603

    Illusion and sheer fabric has been all over the red carpet lately, and we especially love the look when paired with black or white. The combo exudes both sexiness and elegance, and Ciara certainly proved that lately at the VMAs! To wear the look in the Summertime or at Homecoming, we love Night Moves style 6603. It's a short cocktail dress that has an illusion Continue reading

  • Prom Trend of the Week: Pretty in Pastel

    Even though Neon has been super popular lately, the color's opposite family member, pastels, have been all the rage, too! If you haven't joined the trend by way of mint green yet, don't worry, there's plenty of other pretty pastel colors you can wear, too!

    With how long the bold neon colors have been in style for, the new trend of soft pastels is definitely a refreshing switch. The delicate palette is without a doubt a perfect way to usher Spring in, and will have you thinking of delicious cotton candy and summer fun that's soon to come! So, we especially love the color to wear at Prom - rather than having all eyes on your brightly colored dress, keep all eyes on you with a more feminine, subtle look. Below are some of our favorite dresses to wear candy-colored pastel hues for prom.

    Sherri Hill 3875

    Sherri Hill style style 3875 is all about pastel! This stunning chiffon high low dress with beautiful jeweled detail and strapless sweetheart bust comes in five soft colors that are all so perfect for Spring: peach, aqua, green, pink, and yellow. Continue reading

  • Prom Trend of the Week: MINT to Be for Prom 2013!

    Even though Emerald Green is the Pantone Color of the Year, its pastel sister Mint has been taking over the fashion world! Mint has been so popular everywhere, from the high-fashion runways to every day street style. And, you can bet that it's the most popular color for Prom 2013!

    mint_green imageWhether you wear the color as a long, short, or high-low look, the pretty pastel hue will have you looking on-trend all night long at prom. Below are our favorite styles to rock the color for your biggest night of the year!

    Precious Formals P8819 mint green

    Precious Formals style P8819 is one of our most popular dresses this season, and for good reason. Not only does it come in a beautiful mint color, but the one shoulder and cutout back detailing make it so on-trend and unique! Continue reading

  • 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.

  • Emerald Green Fashion Trend

    While our store's always decked out in pink, we're also a huge fan of the color green here at Rissy Roo's because the local high school's color in the town our store's in (we're right behind the high school!) is green. So, we were of course excited when Pantone named emerald green their color of the year for 2013! A color that's abundant in nature, the lush, vibrant hue is said to instil balance and harmony.

    Pantone's 2013 Color of the YearIt's the end of the first month of the new year, but the color is already everywhere! Celebrities like Zoe Saldana and Alicia Keys wore the color, and it will undoubtedly be seeing many more trips down the red carpet, so keep a look-out. It's a great color to wear on anything from your nails to a winter jacket, so make sure to give it a go in your outfits. As a rule of thumb, emerald green and black always work together, but you can also pair it with white and other shades of green.

    With prom right around the corner, it's also a perfect color to choose for your dress. Wearing this exuberant color is without a doubt a great way to stand out from the crowd, and show off your keen fashion sense, too! Since we're so excited about this year's go-to color, we picked out or favorite 3 emerald green prom dresses - check them out below!

    1. Sherri Hill style 1456 - An asymmetrical one shoulder chiffon evening gown with empire waistline and rhinestone embellished trim.

    2. Panoply style 14573 - A strapless sweetheart mermaid evening gown with a low torso sequin bodice, chunky A.B. rhinestone bust trim and a full tulle mermaid skirt with a side front slit.

    3. Scala style P4043 - An elegant and simple beaded and sequined dress with an asymmetrical neckline.

  • 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.
