    Choosing the Perfect New Years Eve Outfit

    When it comes to choosing the right hair for your dress, it's all about pairing the hairstyle with the dress' neckline. For instance, a low cut dress calls for a plain hairstyle. With a strapless dress, you have two choices: either wear your hair up for a more alluring look, or keep it draped over your shoulders to add some modesty. If you're wearing a dress with the trend-setting collar style, just make sure you're wearing a hairstyle where the collar can stand out and take the spotlight on your outfit. For backless dresses, it's the perfect opportunity to wear your hair in a low hanging ponytail look, which is a very popular style right now.

    Accessories can be just as important as your dress! We live by the philosophy of "less is more" when it comes to accessories. If you're going with a simpler style dress, it can be fun to pick one big or bold accessory as the stand-out piece of your outfit. This season, we recommend going crazy with your purse - using your clutch as your outfit's stand-out piece is always a great choice.

    When it comes to choosing your New Years Eve dress, instead of choosing a straight-cut neckline, consider something a little more flirtatious. NYE is definitely a night for flirtatious and sexy looks, so don't be afraid to go that route. Both lace and leather are great choices for a sexy NYE look and have been popular trends lately. If you go with lace and leather, keep your makeup simple but sexy by pairing it with pale pink lip gloss and black eyeliner.

    The shoes may be last, but they certainly are not least when it comes to your NYE outfit! Amp up your party attire with unexpected footwear like day-to-night flats, comfortable wedges, or sexy platforms. For simple dresses, try pairing it with a pair of shoes with fun embellishments.

    New Year's Eve is close, and time is running out, so if you haven't started shopping yet, it's definitely time. Want to get started? Just head on over to RissyRoos.com for everything from your dress, to jewelry, purses, and shoes, and your perfect New Years Eve outfit will be ready to go in no time!

  • Get Ready for your Winter and Holiday Formals with A Roo Girl!

    The most exciting part of having an upcoming event is picking out the perfect outfit, which goes far beyond just the dress. You also have to make sure you have the perfect hairstyle, make up, and shoes to truly complete your outfit! Because of all these important aspects of putting an outfit together, sometimes it can turn into a lengthy process, especially if you have no idea where to start! So, we're going to show you how we get ready for our special events in four easy steps! Read on for easy steps to get ready for a winter inspired dance or formal event.

    Step 1: Pick which dress length you would feel most comfortable in. Since you're going to a formal event, you'll be walking, sitting and probably dancing. Therefore, you want to choose a dress that doesn't keep you from the fun! And, of course, one that you love!

    Blush style 9800We chose Blush 9800, a floor-length, powder blue/nude mermaid gown!

    Step 2: Now that you've picked your perfect dress, it's time to move onto shoes. We tend to go with heels for most formal events, but if you're not comfortable wearing heels you could always go with a dressy pair of flats, especially if you plan on wearing a long gown that will hide the shoes anyway! Listed below are Sizzle by Coloriffics Andes and Touch Ups Dale - two shoes that we'd love to wear with Blush 9800!

We loved the contrast of the gold top with a different colored skirt - perfect for the holidays!If you want a similar gold sequin top paired with a different colored skirt and a belted waist, check out Clarisse style 2053; it has the same look as Taylor's outfit, but all rolled up into a cute dress!

  • Shoe Love - Advice on Formal Shoe Shopping

    Shoes Shoes Shoes Shoes!!!!

    Every girl out there loves shoe shopping, and what's the problem with that?  Shoes are the perfect accessory, go with you everywhere, and make you feel confident and stylish! The perfect pair of shoes can really make an outfit incredible, so when shoe shopping you need to make a commitment to the shoes you buy.  Here are some tips on buying a pair of high heels for your formal event.

    When buying shoes for a formal event, always take into consideration your dress.  If you have a fancy, elaborate dress, then you’ll want a plain pair of shoes so that your style isn’t too overwhelming.  A basic black, white, or silver pair of high heels with a touch of sparkle should do the trick.  For dresses that aren’t as fanciful, get creative with your shoe choice!

    Lately a popular style has been to pair colorful shoes with little black dresses.  Worn with a black dress, bright pink or yellow pumps with matching accessories will add a fun pop to your outfit.  For a formal occasion like a wedding, Homecoming or Prom you might want your shoes to match the color of your dress.  In that case you can purchase a pair of white shoes and have them dyed.  If you don’t want to go through the trouble of getting your shoes dyed, then stick to the basics of shoe matching.  Never mix black with navy blue, go for a silver shoe if the color of your dress is hard to match, and only pick white shoes if you’re wearing a light colored dress.

    Considering the height of a pair of high heels can be a big factor too.  If you’re a heel veteran, than you might not have to worry when picking out a 4” tall pair of heels.  For those not so accustomed to wearing high heels, aim for finding a pair that are a little bit closer to the ground.  You can still look just as cute in a pair of heels that are 2-3” tall.
