  • Dress of the Week: Scala 47631

    With Christmas less than a week away, you can guess that this week's Dress of the Week post is dedicated to being Christmas party ready! And, there is definitely no better dress to pick than Scala style 47631 for such a holiday event. Why? Because the dress comes in the two most important colors of the holiday: red and green!

    That's not the only reason why we love this dress for a Christmas party, though. It's a classic (and classy) style cocktail dress that can easily be dressed up or down, depending on how dressy your holiday party is. Not only that, but this dress features an open back, cap sleeves, and an all over beaded bodice, which are all such on-trend styles right now!

    It can be difficult to find the perfect dress to wear to a Christmas party, as you really want to make sure you choose an appropriate style that doesn't show off too much skin. THIS IS Especially important if it's a party where you will be around your family members!  That's another reason why Scala 47631 is so perfect when it comes to the holidays - the length of the dress and cap sleeves make it so appropriate for any event, showing off just the right amount of skin. We'd just also recommend to bring a cardigan, just in case you feel like it would be good to also cover up the dress' open back. Plus, with the colder weather, it's always safe to have a cardigan with you!

    Best yet, this dress also comes in colors black, ivory, navy and sand, so if you don't want to wear the classic Christmas colors but love the dress, there's definitely plenty of colors to pick from! With all of the colors that you can choose from, also a great dress for a New Year's Eve party. We'd recommend rocking it in navy or black for NYE. White would also be a fun choice for NYE if you really want to stand out, especially with how popular the Winter White trend has been!

    The beautifully bright colored forest the "Roar" music video is shot in got us thinking of how popular the color green has been over the past year! Designers are including that beautiful forest green color in so many of their collections, and it especially reminded us of the daring green Mac Duggal dress style 6399N!

    Mac Duggal 6399NDemure yet daring, this short cocktail dress is an ideal dress for Homecoming or Prom.

  • 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.
