  • Talking all about Prom 2013 with About.com

    We recently sat down with Cassandra Morris, the head writer of the Prom/Formal Dances section of About.com to talk all about prom, where she interviewed Marissa (owner of Rissy Roo's) to get the scoop on what's in style for Prom 2013! Marissa and Cassandra discussed everything from hot celebrities to get style ideas from, to what the 3 most popular dresses are at Rissy Roo's this season.

    Check out some of the questions below, and Click Here to read the full interview on About.com!

    Interview with About.com

    About: What dress lengths are hot for 2013: long gowns or short mini dresses?
    Marissa: 2013 is seeing a trend towards hi-low dresses and mini dresses, long gowns will always be popular for prom, but we are seeing many of our more progressive customers leaning towards dresses that show off their legs and still offer a glamorous formal look.

    About: What colors are Rissy Roo's shoppers all about this year?
    Marissa: We have seen an increasing number of girls gravitating towards jewel colors this season, royal/sapphire blue, emerald, red, and rich purples. We are also seeing many shoppers that are staying on the more serene side with shades of blush and nude.

    About: Which celebs do you think provide the biggest inspiration for prom shopping?
    Marissa: Our customers are inspired by the style of Taylor Swift, Kylie & Kendall Jenner, and Selena Gomez.

     

  • Winter White Fashion Trend

    Wearing the color white is usually reserved for the summer months, but this year it's been given new life, with celebs and fashionistas wearing the color well through the winter! Taylor Swift has been seen wearing the color at a handful of red carpet events, with her rocking the color most recently at the Grammy Awards.

    Taylor Swift at the 2013 Grammy AwardsWhile it's not the most practical of colors, we love white because it brings elegance to any outfit. When it comes to wearing it, don't try to match shades - embrace the subtleties that comes with wearing pure white vs. ivory vs. cream, and don't be afraid to match different textures and fabrics. Don't wear white tights with the outfit, otherwise you risk starting to look like a ghost! Most importantly, any questions alluding to Labor Day are best simply ignored - they clearly just aren't a fashionista! Wear the color with confidence and pride.

    If you have a formal party to attend soon, it's definitely a great color choice to feel part of the Winter Wonderland with all the snow that's been falling lately! Or, if you want to wait to rock it at prom, the color has clearly become an on-trend choice to wear year round. Our favorite white dresses are below - check them out!

    When it comes to the classic evening gown, we love La Femme style 18631. It's a sheath gown with a v-neck fully embellished bodice flowing into a chiffon skirt. The back has thick embellished straps that form an X in the middle, and dips to a low open back.

    La Femme style 18631Tony Bowls TS11368 is perfect if you're looking for a short prom dress or cocktail dress for a Winter Formal. It's a strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline, silver studded bodice, and a gathered illusion skirt.

    Tony Bowls Shorts style TS11368For the ball gown look, check out Tiffany Designs style 16901. It's a strapless sweetheart ball gown with an iridescent stacked sequin bodice, a chunky A.B. rhinestone belt, and a full tulle ball gown skirt. It's a true princess gown!

    Love is in the Air

    Wearing clothes and accessories that say "Love" on them have been all the rage lately, so they'll definitely be the hot thing to wear on Valentine's Day! We thought this ring was simple, but so cute - a great way to show your love (no pun intended) for the holiday without going overboard. And, once you put it on, you'll probably never want to take it off!

    <3 We Heart You <3

    Wearing anything with hearts is always super chic, and V-Day is no exception! We thought this sweater was so cute with the sequin heart elbow patches. Best yet, you can wear it again and again after Valentine's Day is over!

  • 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.

  • Accessorize with Tights for the Winter

    Since the winter has taken a turn for the ridiculously cold this week here on the East Coast, the talk at Rissy Roo's has been all about wearing winter ready outfits. And, what we mean by that is finding fun tights to wear with our dresses! After all, why should a little snow stop us from rocking cute dresses??

    We do realize, though, that there tend to be 2 types of women in the world: those who don't like tights, and those who obsess over tights. Since we can't bear to part with our dresses and skirts during the winter time, you can guess that the staff here at Rissy Roo's are quite obsessed with tights! That's why we've picked out our favorite funky pairs that we found on Pinterest. Tights can be found in so many different styles, colors, and patterns that they really are a great way to bring some personality to any outfit. So, we're hoping that we'll convince those non-tight-wearers out there to give it a go and put those dresses back on!

    Fun Shapes

    With Valentine's Day right around the corner, we thought these tights with hearts on them were too cute! Find a sexy black or red dress to wear with them, and you'll be ready to show off your V-Day spirit. If hearts aren't your thing, you can find tights with all sorts of fun shapes on them - everything from classic polka dots to funky geometic shapes, so keep a look-out for something that you feel matches your style and don't be afraid to try it out!

    Lace

    Since lace is such a hot trend right now, we love the idea of rocking the look in tights, rather than the normal shirt or dress. It gives a fun, new way to wear the look and be on-trend, while showing off your unique style and deviating from the norm a little.

    Winter Inspired

    Of course, with it being winter right now, you can't go wrong with winter-inspired tights! Look for ones that mimic a cozy winter sweater. A lot of these tights even come in thicker fabrics that are perfect for staying warm in the cold weather. We especially love the ones with little reindeer on them!

    Ombre

    Ombre has been a hot trend on everything from hair to dresses, so it's no surprise that the look as even made it to tights! If you love wearing bold, solid color tights, this is another great way to rock them.

    Floral Print

    We love all clothes with floral prints, and we especially love the idea of floral printed stockings matched with a plain, solid color dress. It's a great way to let one accessory do all the talking!

  • The Carrie Diaries Premiere

    Sex and the City is back, but with a little bit of a twist! Did you catch the premiere of the new CW TV Show The Carrie Diaries last night? It's all about Sex and the City protagonist Carrie Bradshaw, but back when she was in high school in 1984.

    While the show is technically a prequel to Sex and the City, don't expect the new show to be SATC all over again. Just like the original, Carrie Bradshaw is nothing short of a bubbly blonde aspiring writer who loves shopping, shoes, and of course, the big city. But, this show is an entirely different, yet just as fun drama that's a great watch whether or not you're a super fan of SATC.

    And, if nothing else, who doesn't love the '80s?? The show is full of a perfect mixture of old and new, with the cast wearing '80s inspired outfits that we'd rock right now if we could get our hands on them! So, just like the original, the show doesn't disappoint in the fashion department. And, the soundtrack combines some great retro tunes with brand new songs. Check out some photos from the show below - they remind us of the fashion trends that are in style right now!

    Pictured (L-R): Katie Findlay as Maggie, Brendan Dooling as Walt, Ellen Wong as Mouse, AnnaSophia Robb as Carrie, Austin Butler as Sebastian, and Freema Agyeman as Larissa.
    Neon jeans are definitely a popular trend right now.
    We'd rock this for Homecoming or Prom any day.

    If you missed the pilot episode this week, no worries - I'm sure there will be many re-runs on TV! You can also already watch the full episode online on The CW's website! The show will be airing every Monday at 8pm EST, so just make sure to catch up before next week.

    If you caught the premiere last night, leave us a comment and let us know what you thought!

  • Celebrity New Year's Eve Outfits

    Even though New Year's Eve has come and gone, we're still obsessing (just a little bit) over all of the sparkly outfits! Seventeen Magazine put together a great collection of what some of the celebrities were wearing when the ball dropped. The styles were all so perfect for NYE, but some of the celebs were even rocking new Prom 2013 trends! So, if you're looking for some ideas for your prom dress, these celeb NYE outfits are definitely a great place to start.

    Carly Rae Jepsen performed in Times Square on NYE in a fashionable long, red maxi skirt and black crop top. Her show was so great! After the performance, she revealed on Twitter:

    "@carlyraejepsen: Had a blast performing in Times Square! Nobody knew i had long johns under my skirt...till now;) #RockinNewYearsEve"

    Pretty silly that she was wearing long johns, but a very good idea - it was very cold that night!

    The 2 piece dress outfit is definitely going to be one of the popular trends for Prom this year, so we loved that Carly Rae was already rocking the look! Dress designers Jovani, Xtreme, Dave & Johnny, and Sherri Hill have all included sexy 2-piece numbers in their Prom 2013 collections, with both short and long skirts. If you want to get a similar look to Carly Rae, we love Jovani style 5336 because of the long, tulle skirt.

     

    Ashley Tisdale was hanging out with her girlfriends Shelley Buckner and Kim Hidalgo on NYE. Ashley rocked the same sexy little black dress that she wore to the Breaking Dawn Pt 2 premiere in Los Angeles. We thought it was so awesome that she was wearing the dress again - it definitely couldn't have been any more perfect for New Year's Eve because of all of the sequins!

    We especially loved her friend's pink baby doll dress, though! It kept within the NYE spirit because of the sequins, but was definitely a unique dress to wear because it was pink! We love Jovani style 612 for a similar style - a great dress to wear for either prom or homecoming.

    Kim Kardashian is of course always rocking sexy outfits, and NYE is no exception! Her sheer and lace dress hugged her curves (...and her baby bump!...the newest Kardashian news from Kanye West!) so well. The long sleeves and length of the skirt is a great compliment to the revealing lace - sometimes it's all about finding balance in your sexy outfit! Jovani style 9448 is a great example of that - the long sleeves keep the dress from being too revealing.

    What a cute pic of Sarah Hyland sharing a midnight kiss with her boyfriend Matt Prokop! As if the kiss wasn't enough to make this pic perfect, we love Sarah's outfit - a burgundy dress and glittery heels! Burgundy has been such a popular color in the Fall and Winter months, that her style couldn't be more on-point. To rock a similar outfit for your next night out on the town, check out La Femme style 16966 for your dress and Candice by Touch Ups for your shoes.

    Nicki Minaj looked as sexy as ever on New Year's Eve in her shiny gold bandage dress and shoes. Seventeen Mag wrote, "this metallic, monochromatic look would be totally stunning for prom." We couldn't agree more!

    If you want to show off your sexy curves just like Nicki, bandage dresses are a great way to do that. Check out Terani style C1329 for a similar gold bandage dress. Or, if you want to take a hint from Seventeen and find your perfect gold look for prom, click here to peruse all the gold prom dresses.
