  • 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

  • Our New Fave Indie Pop Band: Dresses!

    We love dresses at Rissy Roo's, so of course we're obsessing over the new indie pop band that has the very namesake of our favorite piece of clothing! The band Dresses is only made up of two people, Timothy and Jared, a couple from Portland.

    Dresses the band

    Their songs are infectious indie-pop tunes that will have you wanting to get up and dance (in dresses, of course). Their first big hit is for song "Sun Shy," a fun, catchy tune that frontlady Timothy Heller is of course wearing a cute dresses in! 

    Check out their hit single here:

    Want to learn more about the band? Teen Vogue caught up with the Timothy, the leading lady, to talk all about Dresses, how her and her boyfriend met, and what music she's loving right now. Our favorite part of the interview with Teen Vogue was hearing who influences her.

    "Just listening to the female singers that I look up to is inspiring when I'm writing music. I try to channel my role models, and I can tell it makes me write better music and definitely influences what it sounds like."

    Girl power all the way!

  • What to Wear to a Sweetheart Dance

    Valentine's Day time of course also means it's Sweetheart Dance time! Having trouble figuring out what to wear to your Sweetheart Dance? Since it's an event to celebrate Valentine's Day, we recommend picking a red or pink dress. Purple or white are also great colors to choose if you want to show some Valentine's Day love but don't like the traditional red or pink. If those four hues don't work for you, black is always a staple color that you can wear to any event!

    As far as the type of dress goes, choose a strapless/sleeveless cocktail dress. You can either go with the traditional fitted cocktail dress, or choose one that flares out at the waist for a more flowy look. We picked out our favorite Valentine's Day dresses for a Sweetheart Dance below and put them into a cute Polyvore set to give you some ideas on what to wear! You can also click here for more Valentine's Day dresses.

  • Best Dressed Celebrities of 2012

    The new year is finally here, and while that means looking ahead at what's to come, it also means reflecting on the year that's past. Of course, with our love for fashion, we've been looking back at some of the best dressed celebrities of 2012! We loved Lucky Magazine's list of their 25 best dressed stars because they included our favorite 4 in their picks. Check out our best dressed celebrities below and how you can get their look for your next formal event!

    Jennifer Lawrence rocked some very fashionable outfits througout her Hunger Games promo tour - they even earned her a gig as the next face of the Miss Dior handbag! Our favorite dress was the one she wore to the Hollywood premiere - a Prabal Gurung gold cut-out gown. The gown reminded us of the shiny outfits the contestants wore during the Opening Ceremonies of the Hunger Games. If you want to be the star of your prom, check out Faviana style 7182 - a foil jersey mermaid style evening gown with mesh cut-out details.

    Taylor Swift had a great year of fashion, from her casual looks, to being on the cover of Glamour, to dressing up in sparkly gowns at award shows. She's relatively consistent with her outfits, but she always looks so perfect, how can anyone complain?? We especially loved the nude gown with red floral embellishments that she wore to the CMA Awards show because of its elegance. If you want a similar look, try Sherri Hill style 21016 - a gorgeous strapless sweetheart high low gown with lace overlay.

    This soulful singer is always dressing in glittering gowns and cinched-waist skirts that suit her beautiful voice. We love that Lana Del Rey paired dark red lipstick and her long brown hair with this sparkly silver dress - she looks so glam! Get a similar look with the dress Night Moves style 6755 - an all-over sequin gown with matte and shiny sequins. The strapless bodice is accented with a beaded band at the waistline for a more fitted look.

    Jessica Chastain recently came into the spotlight for her role as a CIA analyst in the film Zero Dark Thirty. Even though she has a tough character to play in the film, she's been looking nothing less than gorgeous on the red carpet. Lucky Magazine says that Jessica tends to wear "feminine A-line silhouettes, well-placed sequins, and lovely lace." We definitely see all of that in our favorite champagne colored dress that she wore! If you'd like a similar look for prom, check out Primavera style 9490 - a gown with uniquely crafted sequins in a cross diamond pattern with a super sexy criss-cross low back.

  • New Year's Eve Party Outfits!

    This year is coming to an end very quickly! So many parties...so little time! You HAVE to dive into the new year looking fab, of course. We picked out our fav cocktail dresses that are so perfect for a New Year's eve party. Whether you're hitting up a nightclub or celebrating at home...you'll be sure to enter 2014 looking super glamorous!

    A NYE dress is not a NYE dress without sequins or some kind of embellishment! But, sticking to the plain sequin dresses isn't always the best way to stand out, since a lot of people will be rocking the sequins on this night! It can be fun to find a dress that has the sparkly sequins, but with a little bit of a twist to it.

    We especially love Jovani for this - they are always so fashion forward with their designs that we can barely keep up! Our favorite two Jovani dresses for New Year's are below - they scream NYE in a very unique way and are especially great if you're celebrating at one of the hottest nightclubs. We love the long sleeves on these dresses, too - perfect for winter festivities! Since they are classic cocktail dresses, they both can be worn time and time again for other events, too!

     

     

     

     

    This Jovani 4973 cocktail dress features a nude underlay with a sheer beaded overlay. The sequins gives it a festive look! It's perfect for someone who wants to stand out and show off their legs. You'll definitely turn heads in this one!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The studded detail on this Jovani 9419 dress gives it an edgy rock n' roll look. If you want to channel your inner Rihanna, this one is definitely the one for you!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    If long sleeves aren't your thing, no worries - there's nothing wrong with showing off some arms on NYE! The other cocktail dresses we picked out below, like the Jovani dresses, have a unique look to them but still have that new year's eve sparkle! They are both also only $178, so if holiday shopping burned a hole in your pocket, and the dresses above hurt your wallet, these are great options for a more affordable dress!

     

     

     

     

     

    Be the star of the night in this strapless Scala 47488 cocktail dress. This ivory dress features silver and gold sequin embellishment, a sweetheart neckline, and comes in three other colors. It hugs you in all the right places!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Watch the ball drop in this little number! This fun one shoulder Dave & Johnny 7947 cocktail dress features a sexy open back and all over multicolor sequins. Perfect for this celebration and many others!
