    gwenHappy Birthday Gwen Stefani!!! Style Icon & Music extraordinaire!!

    the voice castHappy Birthday Diva! No Doubt rocker Gwen Stefani became famous for her amazing singles such as "Just a Girl," "Don't Speak," and "Hey Baby," in the early 90’s. As the years progressed we all watched her music career grow as well as her fashion career.

    Through the years Gwen has rocked the music industry with her catchy lyrics and crazy fashion sense. For as long as I can remember Gwen has always been a fashion icon. She has donned the red carpet and the stage with so many memorable styles.

    gewn multiGwen is also quite the philanthropist. In 2011 she donated $1 million to the Save the Children’s - Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children Emergency Fund. Did you know that she also created an online auction on E-bay? Participants were allowed to bid on vintage clothing from her very own personal wardrobe and custom T-shirts designed and signed by her. Proceeds went to the Save the Children’s Relief Effort. How cool is that!!

    In 2011 Gwen and husband Gavin Rossdale attended amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala in this stunning sequin self designed mermaid gown! If you are looking to wear something similar than I would suggest checking out our Tony Bowls style TBE21401!!!gwen blcak mermaid

  • Fashion Friday: Blazers for Spring 2014

    Since the seasons are changing, it has been quite the challenge to find the "perfect" look these days. Earlier this week, we talked about spring casual outfits, but there's one great spring look that we didn't mention: blazers! Until the weather is adequate for the more revealing summer wear, which we have been craving all winter, we find blazers are the perfect fashion piece to make any outfit look super trendy and complete! Plus, the look as been all over the runways.

    Spring BlazersAlthough prints are very "in" for the Spring/Summer 2014  season, a very minimalistic approach was taken by designers when it comes to blazers. As you can see above, a pastel blazer can be worn with shorts, a skirt, pants, or even a romper, and still look fabulous for day-to-day wear. A huge bonus by adding a blazer is you can still look great without a tremendous amount of trying or over doing-it by getting too dressed up. It will always have you looking both classic AND classy. The blazer is also the perfect piece of clothing to throw on after work for an event or special dinner!

    Spring 2014 BlazersAs you can see, this light jacket can be paired with any type of outfit and it doesn't have to be plain. From striped to polka dots, everything works for Spring 2014! If you want to wear pants, shorts or a skirt, a blazer if the perfect complement, and is the easiest way to dress an outfit up or down. If it's colder out on the night of your prom, you could even throw a blazer on over your prom dress for a cute extra layer! It's always fun to dress a blazer up with a less "business-y" look like a prom dress, as it makes for stand-out contrasts. How are you wearing your blazer this spring? Let us know, we would love to find out!

  • What To Wear Wednesday: Spring Casual Outfits

    Even though we all love the Spring sunshine, flowers, and the days of Summer rapidly approaching, Spring can be a tricky time of year to dress because of its "in between" weather stage. However, for this same reason, this is one of our favorite times to mix it up with unique combinations of clothing and accessories. Due to the warmer weather, you can pair jeans with a crop top, or a dress with a sleek leather jacket. The options are endless, making us obsessed with Spring/Summer 2014 fashion. This week, we are all about Spring casual outfits. Our 'What To Wear Wednesday' is a casual, yet cute outfit that can be worn any day (night) of the week!

    A Fun Romper

    Shail K 3468

    Rompers are a great way to get a dress look, while feeling a little more casual in shorts. This trend is so in right now, and it's one that you can easily take from day to night just by adding some accessories (and heels) to dress it up. We especially love the Shail K. 3468 Sleeveless Short Romper -

    A Classic Denim Jacket

    Level 99 "Western" Denim Jacket

    A classic denim jacket is a must-have accessory for the Spring, and even the Summer, months. It's a classy way to throw an extra layer on top of any outfit during times when it's a little cooler out.

    The Modern Sunhat

    Modern Sunhat

    Sun hats are so fun! They're also perfect for keeping the rays out of your eyes once you're hitting the beach in the Summer.

    Perfect Shades

    Rayban Gold Aviators

    Shades are a must, of course. You might as well make sure you look stylish while you keep the sun out of your eyes!

    Ultra Mod Booties

    Free Bird by Steven "Rollin" Bootie

    The Spring months are your last chance to wear booties before Summer comes and you're in sandals all the time, so live up your last days! We are especially loving the new cutout bootie trend - a great one to try out for Spring.

    That's it! The perfect casual spring outfit that is still fun and flirty enough to be worn to a party or lunch, yet casual enough for a shopping trip! Like what you see? Comment below and tell us about your casual Spring day outfit!

  • Inside CHANEL Perfume

    The perfume company CHANEL recently created a whole website to tell the history of the company and how it all came to be. There's so much interesting information behind the company and perfume that we wanted to share it with all of our Roo Girls! The story dates all the way back to 1883 when Gabrielle Chanel was born.

    Of course, CHANEL No 5 perfume is the most well-known of the CHANEL collection, and is one of the most well-known perfumes of the world. So, we were happy to see that "Chapter 1" of "Inside CHANEL" started with the story of how CHANEL No 5 came to be! The fragrance was created in 1921 for the first time, and has such a beautiful story behind it. Watch it here:

    http://youtu.be/tRQa33dqyxI

    We loved learning the story behind the perfume coming to be was that Chanel sought to create:

    "A woman's perfume with a woman's scent. Her scent should be as important as her style of dress. A woman should wear perfume wherever she would like to be kissed."

    Chanel quoteThe perfume was the first time a perfume wasn't based on only one floral scent, and it certainly made an impact on the perfume industry from there on out. It's become a classic and iconic scent that has truly tested time. It's even been honored by the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, and the famous artist Andy Warhol even included it in a series of his paintings! And of course, you can't look over Marilyn Monroe being known for wearing the perfume, revealing that she wears to bed, "just a few drops of No 5." And, ever since then, so many more celebrities, even Brad Pitt, have promoted the perfume. Our favorite part of the whole first video, though may be how it ended: "No 5 resists the whims of fashion and the passage of time, as of Mademoiselle Chanel had found the formula for the feminine eternal." It definitely sounds like she has!

    There's so much more to the CHANEL story than just this Chapter 1 video, though, and definitely too much to include in only one blog post! There are 10 full "Chapters" to the story, as well as an interactive timeline, all on their website at Inside.Chanel.com. If you love CHANEL and CHANEL perfume, it's definitely a fun website to check out. Enjoy!

  • Kim and Kanye on the Cover of Vogue!

    It's been all the talk lately - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, better known as "Kimye" gracing the April 2014 cover of Vogue Magazine! Vogue boldly marked the importance of Kimye by including the subtitle of, "Their Fashionable Life and Surreal Times, #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple," on the cover, and it's left everyone in a frenzy.

    Vogue-kim-kanye

    Those in the fashion industry are up-in-arms over Vogue's choice and declaration, saying that they aren't even a good representation of a fashionable couple and what Vogue stands for as a magazine. From hilarious reactions on Twitter to some even threatening to cancel their subscriptions, everyone's definitely had an opinion over this cover! There's even been some funny Kimye Vogue cover spoofs - from James Franco and Seth Rogan, to The Muppets' Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy ('Kermie & Piggy' on the cover!), to even Kylie and Kendall Jenner! We love that the Jenner sisters can make fun of their cousin like that - so silly!

    kim-kardashian-kanye-west-vogue-cover-parodys

    But, our favorite reaction may be Naomi Campbell's. The 43-year-old supermodel appeared on Australia's "The Morning Show," where she beautifully demonstrated an important lesson - if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!

    When one of the hosts of the show asked Naomi what she thought of the cover, she simply smiled and said, "I do not want to comment," followed by a laugh and mention that she is a fashion model.

    But, of course, the host was dissatisfied with this response and continued to prod her with an answer by asking if she thought, "Kim and Kanye haven't earned the right to be on the cover of Vogue?" Naomi simply replied with, "Those are your words, not mine. I'm being politically correct." So classy! And, coming from a fashion model, so perfect!

    With all this said, we think Kim looks gorgeous on the cover, and Kanye looks handsome, of course. we especially loved the gorgeous white strapless gown that Kim wore on the cover - it hugs her curves so perfectly!

    What do you think of the Kim and Kanye Vogue cover photo? Leave us a comment below!

  • 2014's Most Coveted Prom Accessories

    So you've got your show-stopping dress… but how are you going to accessorize? After all, that perfect piece of jewelry or eye-catching clutch can really bring the entire look together.

    Don't forget what Coco Chanel said, though: "When accessorizing, always take off the last thing you put on." The point is that less is more when you're trying to make a statement. If you've got too many things going on, it can be distracting. So, choose accessories, but choose wisely.

    If you want to choose wisely, you have to know where to begin! Here's a list of what all 2014's prom fashionistas are coveting this year, so you can get some ideas of what you think is hot or not.

    Volcano Crystal Jewelry

    volcano crystalA simple pair of clear crystal earrings is a great way to accentuate a va-va-voom dress. But sometimes, when you choose a solid-colored dress with minimal details, you want a little something to take it up a few notches. Volcano crystals are perfect for exactly that! These somewhat iridescent, multi-colored crystals have all the elegance of crystal earrings with the many different ways they can be cut and shaped, but they're just a little more eye-catching.

    Sequin Clutches

    Screenshot_2Every girl loves a little sparkle and shine, so luckily, sequin clutches are the most stylish form of hand-candy this year. These small-but-mighty bags pick up on any shimmery detailing on your dress without stealing the show. Plus, they're perfectly practical for carrying some emergency makeup, a cell phone, and a few dollars in cash without being a burden.

    Rose Gold

    rose gold

    In terms of shoes, dress accents, and jewelry, rose gold is a hot trend this year – and we absolutely love it. It's a weird rule of fashion that you're either a "silver" or a "gold" – that your skin color only looks good in one or the other. Rose gold is the perfect compromise. The pink-ish sheen gives it a little something girly while still being delicate, and it can be prepared with nearly any color without being the "obvious" choice.

    Glitter Platforms

    glitter

    Some girls go for understated shoes beneath their dresses, but glitter platforms are for those of us who aren't those girls. The substantial platform beneath the heel means that even though they're sky-high, they're not painful to walk in because there's plenty of support. The glittery finish says "glamour" and "look at me!" – they're not the shoes for anyone who doesn't love the spotlight.

    At the end of the day, there are so many routes you can take when accessorizing prom dresses. Whether you want something vintage and a little Audrey Hepburn-inspired, or you want to go over-the-top glam, that's going to affect your accessory choices. Sometimes, though, seeing what's on-trend can help you make that decision!

  • Three Big Trends in Prom Dresses 2014

    Prom is the first big formal event in the lives of many high school girls, so getting dressed up is

    rissy roo 1

    a big deal. Having a dress that both suits your personality and stands out in the crowd is usually the goal when choosing a color and style. Like any type of fashion, popular types of prom dresses te

    nd to come and go, and 2014 is definitely an interesting year for trends. If you want to star

    Lots and Lots of Floral

    t getting ideas for the dress you're going to wear for the big night, here are a few of the themes you can expect to see in stores.

    Floral patterns are classic that often get re-created with modern twists, and floral-patterned dresses are definitely something you can expect to see a lot of this year. Whether it's a subtle pattern along the bodice or a top-to-bottom design, it's an interesting way to break up a dress's solid color without using sequins or rhinestones. The great thing about this trend is that floral patterns can take on a vintage or modern aesthetic, so no matter what you typically wear, you can find a way to rock it. This picture has a more muted color scheme, but brightly-colored floral patterns will definitely be seen on the market.

    Pastels

    Though any color dress can be made to look chic on the right person with the right accessories, there seem to be certain color palettes that get popular on a yearly basis. This year, pastels are a big hit – blush pinks, sky blues, baby yellows, and lavender, for example, seem to be the choice of many designers. Pastel-colored dresses make for a delicate, feminine aesthetic that is easily complemented by light jewelry and natural hair. Wearing one of these shades is an easy way to look effortlessly elegant on the biggest night of the year.

     

    Short Dresses

    rissy roo 3Traditionally, girls always opt for floor-length gowns for prom night. When looking at lines of prom dresses for 2014, though, it seems that short styles are just as popular as long cuts. Shorter dresses are perfect for girls who want to look cute and flirty or even retro, and as an added bonus, you get to show off your shoes! No more hiding your kicks behind the drape of a gown. Some girls prefer these dresses because they're easier to dance in, and others just like to show off their legs. Don't have any hang-ups about whether or not a short dress is formal enough; you can jazz up a dress of any length with the right jewelry.

    So, what do you think? Are you going to wear any of these trends to prom this year?
