  • Homecoming Dress Testimonial: Kiersten Kiddy

    The Homecoming 2016 Season is here, and some of our Roo Girls have already attended their dances, and shared their pictures with us. The latest homecoming photos were shared by Kiersten Kiddy's mom, Toni-Wes Kiddy. While most people think of high school or college when it comes to attending homecoming, Kiersten was actually attending her middle school homecoming. So, get ready for a cuteness overload with her pictures.

    Kiersten was all set to attend her middle school homecoming back in August. All she needed was a dress. Kiersten's mom, Toni, called up Rissy Roo's, loving a Lexi by Mon Cheri dress that Kiersten needed in a Size 12. While we didn't have the dress in a Size 12, we did have it in a Size 16, and assured Toni that it can be altered to fit Kiersten. Kiersten and Toni purchased the dress, had it altered, and the rest is history. Needless to say, Kiersten looked beautiful in it for her football homecoming! Check out the photos Kiersten's mom sent below, as well as her homecoming testimonial.

    Before it was time for Kiersten to attend her junior high homecoming, Toni initially sent us pictures of Kiersten trying on the dress. Toni said:

    "We talked on the phone on August 31st & whoever I talked to was so helpful & nice (I was very worried about such a big alteration). It was a Sz 16 & has been altered down to about a Sz 12. We absolutely love it. But can't wait to see my daughter in it with her hair & makeup. Thank you again..."

    After Kiersten attended her football homecoming, Toni followed-up with pictures of Kiersten on the homecoming field all dressed up. Toni said:

    "Here are much better pics of Kiersten in her beautiful dress! Remember it was a Sz 16 taken in to about a Sz 10/12... This was for Selmer Middle School Football Homecoming. And thank you so much!!"

    How cute does Kiersten look with her homecoming date? We're just a little obsessed! With Kiersten's obvious fashion sense, we can't believe she's only in middle school. We can't wait to see what she'll be rocking for homecoming and prom in the many years to come in high school!

  • Winona Forever: A Fashion Flashback To The Style Icon

    Ninety's fashion has made a huge comeback this year, seeing celebs like Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid rocking those ever famous 90s style chokers and goth inspired looks. We certainly can't complain, especially since the 1990s seem to be making a comeback in a huge way well beyond fashion. Just yesterday, sequels to 1990s popular movies The Blair Witch Project and Trainspotting were announced, and one of our all-time favorite actresses who we've been waiting patiently to take over the spotlight once again has done just that: Winona Ryder! The popular 1990s actress who was famous for Tim Burton movies like Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice, as well as Girl, Interrupted, is finally back in the limelight in a big way in Netflix's newest sci-fi series Stranger Things.

    With the comeback of both Winona and 90s fashion, we wanted to give a fashion flashback to some of the formal outfits that made Winona that 1990s fashion icon she's become known for. After all, as Vice noted in their article "The Timeless Appeal of Winona Ryder, Hollywood's Eternal Outsider," Winona was "the cult face of the 90s." See four of our favorite outfits below, and of course how you can take a cue from them for a perfect fall Homecoming look.

    Winona wore that classic goth look in a totally elegant way, wearing a black v-neck dress, a worn-in leather jacket, black hair, and dark red lips. Of course, you can never go wrong with Johnny Depp on your shoulder! In this picture, Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp were at the NATO/ShowWest Convention in Las Vegas, NV in February of 1990.  Continue reading

  • Lily-Rose Depp Shows How To Rock Homecoming Dresses Celeb Style

    Actor Johnny Depp's daughter Lily-Rose Depp has been taking the media by storm lately, showing off her true fashionista skills, and we're basically obsessed. Most recently, she attended the launch party of Chanel's new Mademoiselle Privé Exhibition in London, where she rocked a lavender Chanel dress and black jacket and amazed all by her totally unique and chic style. So, ok, she may not have been attending a homecoming dance, but we're totally loving her look, one that couldn't be more perfect for showing off your own style at your homecoming dance.

    http://rissyroos.tumblr.com/post/180094956717/lily-rose-depp-at-the-launch-party-of-chanels-new


    Her look is a perfect place to start for being inspired for homecoming not only because it's just classic stunning, but also because it's a totally funky, unique look. Teen Vogue perfectly described the look: it's "not only...mindbogglingly gorgeous, but also because it's fun and a little quirky."

    So, to rock a fun, but classic lavender look like Lily-Rose Depp, you can try a dress like La Femme 16813, a cute short dress with ruffles on the skirt and a beaded top, just like Lily-Rose's dress. You can definitely twirl around in style in this dress!

    Then, top off the dress with a black blazer to get a totally unexpected look that's, of course, perfect for the cooler fall weather. Try this long sleeve sequin open blazer for a dressy blazer that gives off a similar vibe to Lily's blazer.

    After getting the lavender dress and black sequin blazer, all that's left to finish off the look is a simple black heel, rather than going with a high stiletto heel. After all, you can still be chic and practical! Go with Sweetie's Zabie Elegant Short Shoes for a similar choice to Lily's heels (2 and 3/4 inch heel). Or, for a slightly higher heel, go with Sweetie's Spice Open Toe Shoes (3 and 1/2 inch heel).

    No matter what you end up wearing to Homecoming, just remember to have lots of fun!

    Congratulations to Sarah F., winner of our 2015 Homecoming Pinterest Contest!

    Fall Into Homecoming Pinterest Contest WinnerTo help make sure all of our Roo Girls are ready for Homecoming Season, we held a 2015 Fall into Homecoming Pinterest Contest. Since mid September, Rissy Roo's Pinterest fans showed off their favorite Rissy Roo's Homecoming 2015 dresses by creating a "Fave RissyRoos.com Homecoming Styles" Pinterest board. They pinned their favorite dresses from RissyRoos.com onto their board to show us what they're obsessing over for their back to school dance. Entrants had to pin at least 20 items from RissyRoos.com, tag the pins with #RissyRoosHomecoming and build up their follower base.

    Girls were not only judged on following pinning and board creation directions, but also on building up the pins and followers of their board and showing us just how excited they are for Homecoming through their pins. The girls put their pinning skills to work, pinning beautiful dresses, shoes, and accessories all from our website. While we loved all of the boards, we could only pick one winner. Sarah's Pinterest board stood out from the rest because we could really tell how dedicated she was to showing off her pinning skills. She pinned 31 Rissy Roo's images in total, and gained 217 followers on her board! Sarah chose Scala 48501 as her winning dress, which she'll get to wear during her Homecoming on October 24, 2015. Congrats again, Sarah! We hope you love your dress!

  • 5 Trend-Setting 2015 Homecoming Dresses To Fall In Love With!

    The first day of fall isn't until Wednesday, September 23rd, but that crisp fall air is already starting to set in and we're getting super excited for homecoming time! If you haven't found your perfect homecoming dress yet, it's definitely time to start narrowing the choices down and falling in love with that perfect dress. Since we know there are so many gorgeous 2015 homecoming dresses to choose from, we're here to help you out! Read on to see our top five dresses, chosen according to the most popular homecoming dress trends.

    Lace

    Lace fabric continues to be popular season over season, and it's certainly not going anywhere any time soon. Pair lace with darker colors like maroon, navy, or black, and you have a quintessential fall look. Best yet, dark colored dresses that feature lace are perfect for the holiday season, too, which, believe it or not, is right around the corner.

    Blush 10071

    One of our favorite lace homecoming dresses this year is Blush Prom 10071. Sensitive and sexy, flirty and romantic describes this versatile short lace sweetheart dress perfectly. Not only does this dress feature lace, but also is a backless dress, which is on-trend for Homecoming 2015, as well. The color featured above is Sangria, but it also comes in Navy - both great fall colors. Continue reading

  • Taylor Swift Surprise "All Of Me" Performance with John Legend

    Taylor Swift is off on her 1989 tour, and she is basically surprising people left and right at every stop with famous musicians, celebrities, and even sports stars showing up on-stage with her. From Kobe Bryant to Alanis Morissette to Ellen DeGeneres, Tay is pretty darn popular! Her newest 1989 tour surprise has got us Roo Girls talking for more reasons than one, though.

    For her big 1989 date in Los Angeles, CA, she had a big surprise for her fans. Tay brought out artist John Legend for a duet on his song "All of Me." How did this all happen? Apparently, because Taylor happened to hear that John and his wife Chrissy Teigen were on their way over to see her performance. So, she called to see if John wanted to join her on stage, and join she did!

    Of course, if you know us at RissyRoos.com, the Tay and John duet obviously wasn't the only thing we were crushing over. Look at that gorgeous long-sleeved gown Taylor wore (which she was clearly loving by all of her little movements)! It had us dreaming of prom days, to say the least. It also had us thinking of a particular dress that makes for a perfect way to get Taylor's look for your next formal event: Tarik Ediz 92579.

    Tarik Ediz 92579

    Style 92579 is a vibrant ball gown that features a high neckline, lace illusion bodice, and a full tulle skirt. The elegance and boldness of this dress basically screams Taylor Swift!

    John isn't the only artist that she brought up on stage at the Los Angeles Staples Center show, though. St. Vincent and Beck also joined her on stage to sing Beck's song "Dreams." Check it out below.

    And, of course, with a change of artists comes a change of outfit! She put on a more flirty choice - a two piece white romper, which had us thinking of the sexy white rompers worn in her Bad Blood music video. To copy this white two piece look for a perfect homecoming choice, we're loving Black by Blush C319.

    Blush c319

    Style C319 is a chic and sleek two piece jersey knit featuring a tank style crop top encrusted with opaque color coordinating beadwork and a rouged pencil skirt accented with a belt of matching beading.

    From genre changing albums, to awesome celebrity friends, to super chic fashion choices, Tay certainly never disappoints. We can't wait to see what she has up her sleeve next!

  • Dress of the Week: La Femme 22061 + Accessories!

    With only one day down, and only today and tomorrow to go for our Shoes and Accessories Sale, we thought we'd have a little mix and match fun! We picked out one of our favorite summer to fall transitional dresses, La Femme style 22061, and paired it with shoes and accessories that complete the look for perfection.

    La Femme 22061

    La Femme 22061, one of La Femme's new Fall 2015 dresses, is such a classic look, with just the right amount of edge, that you can wear it to so many different events, from Homecoming to to a night out with your besties. So, with all of our shoes and accessories at 20% off through the end of Friday, August 21st, we thought this was a great time to show you how you can pair the little black dress with the perfect extras for a completed head-to-toe look.

    Since La Femme 22061 is an LBD, this is one dress that's easy to pair with just about any shoes, jewelry, and purse; the most important thing is to make sure the accessories match each other (more than the dress). But, since style 22061 has that classic black lace look to it with the two two-piece trend adding just the right amount of glam, we love to keep the accessories in that range, as well. Check out our favorite accessories to pair below!

    Clutch: La Regale RL22003 Stone Clutch - This glam all over stone clutch has an optional 22" drop-in chain strap and a magnetic snap closure. We love the classic black and gold colors of the clutch, with just a hint of glam added with the black stone features.

    Bracelet: Pearl Bow Bracelet - A perfectly jeweled bow bangle bracelet with elegant pearl accents. It doesn't get much more classic, classy, and so chic than this bracelet!

    High Heels: Jupiter by Touch Ups Sexy Jeweled Shoes - A stunning single soled sandal covered in wonderful black stones and features a sophisticated lamy material. Two buckles secure a thick ankle strap that provides a fashion-forward silhouette. The black stones on this heel match the black stones on the La Regale RL22003 clutch perfectly!

    We hope you not only love our Dress of the Week pick, but all of the accessories, too! Remember, to get 20% off all of our shoes and accessories through tomorrow, just use promo code MUSTHAVE at check-out.
