  • ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Season 4 Premiere: A is for A-l-i-v-e

    Pretty Little Liars is back, and with a vengeance, for its Season 4 Premiere! The episode, which aired on June 11, was called "A is for A-l-i-v-e," and it definitely got our hearts racing, as usual. Marlene King, executive producer, promised that this would be the "season of answers," and she definitely wasn't kidding around! The premiere episode already cleared up almost every "A" related question that's still been lingering around, while still adding a dozen more to the list!

    We don't want to ruin the episode for those fans who haven't watched it yet, so we'll leave it at that, and instead focus on what else, but the fashion! Black's always been a big Pretty Little Liars color, but we especially loved it in this episode! All of the girls were wearing cute little black dresses (except for Hanna Marin, played by Ashley Benson, who added a totally chic sheer long skirt to her look), with sexy high heels to match. We loved the dresses so much that we picked out our favorite black cocktail dresses. Now you can rock these PLL style to your next event! And, since little black dresses never go out of style, don't be afraid to stock up on these looks! Continue reading

  • Summer Appropriate Ways to Wear Sequins

    Sequins are always the go-to look for the holidays and often get put on the back burner once summer rolls around. But, with summer being the brightest time of year, is there really a better time to be wearing sparkles?? We don't think so! So, with the warm weather finally on its way, we're here to help show you how to bring sequins into your summer outfits for a whole new, unique look.

    When it comes to sequins in the summertime, we recommend to keep it simple and specific to only one item within your outfit. So, if you're wearing a sequin dress, make sure your accessories don't have sequins. Or, if you accessorize with a sequin purse or shoes, keep your clothes summer casual. This is a great way to wear the trend during the summer months without going overboard. Check out our favorite ways to stylize sparkles for the summer below!

    Blush 9667

    One of our favorite way to wear sequins in the summer time is with white! White is undoubtedly the go-to summer color, so it will give the sequins a super on-trend look for the season. Our favorite cocktail dress to get the look is Blush style 9667. Shiny white-gold paisleys rock in a flared skirt with a corset back in this gorgeous short dress. With the paisley white detailing, it's the perfect chic way to rock sequins in the summer.

    La Regale 21016 sequin clutch

    Carrying a sequin clutch with a bright summery outfit is a great way to add a touch of glam to your look. La Regale style 21016 is a sparkly clutch that can compliment a number of different looks, from daytime to nighttime.

    La Femme 18710

    If you have a formal event to attend this summer and are looking for a gown, we recommend choosing one where sequins are more understated. Depending on the event, choosing a completely sequined gown may be too holiday reminiscent for the summer.  One sequined gown that we love for the summertime is La Femme style 18710. It's an empire waist chiffon gown with a criss-cross sequined patterned sweetheart neckline and small diamond shaped open back. The sequined bodice adds the perfect amount of sparkle, while the flowy chiffon fabric is perfect for summertime.

    However you decide to wear sequins in the summertime, you'll sparkle as much as the sun. Most importantly, you'll show everyone that whether winter or summer, sequins are always a way to look on-trend.

  • Rissy Roo's Prom Dress Testimonial: Ashton Boyd

    We recently received such a sweet e-mail from one of our customers that we just can't get over! Daphne Boyd, mother of Ashton, sent us such a detailed message of her experience at Rissy Roo's, and we are just so happy to hear that she got everything that she was looking for! We don't want to do much explaining of Daphne's note, as it definitely speaks for itself - read on below, and check out how gorgeous her daughter, Ashton, looked in her dress!

    "I have so many wonderful things to say about your company. I'd like to begin with the first phone call I made to your company.  I had been looking all over California for a very specific La Femme evening gown. 18914 that number will forever be in my mind. I found you on the web and decided to call.  Frustrated with all the California neglect.  Your customer service was amazing.  Kind and patient and very knowledgable.  You had the dress.  I was so excited.  Then she told me it would be about 8 or 9 days to get the dress to Cali.  My heart sank that would be cutting it very close especially with alterations.  Then the young lady said the most amazing thing... She said well wait we have a warehouse in California and it can be to you in 4 days for $25.  I about fell off the couch.  Lets do it. I wish that I had found you Freshman year! We have one more year in high school and I can guarantee that I will be purchasing all her dresses next year from you!  And I have been telling all my Cali friends about how great Rissy Roos is. My daughter looked beautiful and she stood out and looked far different from all the same prom dresses that everybody wore. Thank you again."

  • Prom Trend of the Week: Pretty in Pastel

    Even though Neon has been super popular lately, the color's opposite family member, pastels, have been all the rage, too! If you haven't joined the trend by way of mint green yet, don't worry, there's plenty of other pretty pastel colors you can wear, too!

    With how long the bold neon colors have been in style for, the new trend of soft pastels is definitely a refreshing switch. The delicate palette is without a doubt a perfect way to usher Spring in, and will have you thinking of delicious cotton candy and summer fun that's soon to come! So, we especially love the color to wear at Prom - rather than having all eyes on your brightly colored dress, keep all eyes on you with a more feminine, subtle look. Below are some of our favorite dresses to wear candy-colored pastel hues for prom.

    Sherri Hill 3875

    Sherri Hill style style 3875 is all about pastel! This stunning chiffon high low dress with beautiful jeweled detail and strapless sweetheart bust comes in five soft colors that are all so perfect for Spring: peach, aqua, green, pink, and yellow. Continue reading

  • Dancing with the Stars: Prom Night!

    Prom Night is hitting the TV Screen everywhere! Last week, we talked about the beautiful gowns worn on the Prom episode of The Vampire Diaries. And today, we're all about the stunning dresses worn on the special Dancing with the Stars Prom Night episode (episode 1603)! The episode aired earlier this month, but we wanted to make sure to give a re-cap because there was one La Femme dress that was front and center!

    Dancing with the Stars Performers

    All the girls and dresses looked beautiful, but our eyes were on Kellie Pickler the entire episode; not just because her and partner Derek Hough were stealing the show with their dance moves, but because Kellie looked absolutely adorable in La Femme style 18902 in light gold! It was no surprise that her and Derek received the highest score of the night with their fabulous dance number. Judge Len even declared Kellie, "The Queen of the Prom" after their performance to "Footloose!" It must have been Kellie's gold dress dazzling the judges! Check out some of the images from the show below:

    La Femme style 18902 also comes in aqua, lavender, light pink, and white. Perfect if you are looking for a short white prom dress! Due to the dancing aspect, the show did add thin straps to the cocktail dress.

    Kellie Pickler La Femme style 18902

    The gold number Kellie wore in the Prom episode wasn't the only La Femme dress Kellie has rocked on the show, either! You can check her out in the beginning of the show wearing La Femme style 16368. It's a short ruched net strapless dress with a jewel incrusted front that's perfect for After Prom, Graduation, or any other cocktail party event that you may have.

  • What to Wear to After Prom Parties

    We've been dishing out tip after tip on how to make sure you have the perfect prom. From dress trends, to celebrity style, to hairstyles, to nail looks...but the night doesn't end with prom, of course! There's after prom, too, and it's just as important to make sure you find the perfect outfit to wear for your post prom events.

    When prom ends and the after parties begin, it's time to throw on an outfit that's more fun, flirty, and comfortable, but still has you sparkling all night long! Wearing cute cocktail dresses have been a popular trend the past couple of years, which we absolutely love...why let the glam stop at prom?? Just make sure that the dress doesn't compete with your prom dress - your prom dress should be your big outfit of the night. Below are our favorite frocks that will have you looking glamorous from prom to after-prom.

    Jovani 74005

    Jovani style 74005 is so fun and funky, and so perfect for spring and summer with its cutout features and open back. It definitely has that extra party-girl edge!

    Hannah S 27796

     Hannah S style 27796 is an elastic bandage dress that is sure to be a comfortable choice, while still being figure flattering. We love the bright blue color (it also comes in a bright pink) - it's a perfect way to channel the spirit of spring in a chic way!

    La Femme 18110

    Just looking for something simple, but stylish to wear? Rocking a little black dress is always a staple choice. We love La Femme style 18110 because it's made of a stretch net mesh fabric that is sure to be a comfortable choice. The dress also comes in blue, red, and nude, so if you'd like to wear a bold color on a more simple dress, that's always a fun choice, too!

    Whatever you decide to wear to After Prom, just make sure that you have lots of fun!

  • What to Wear to a Spring Formal

    Spring is here, and that means it's time for lots and lots of college formal events. Whether attending your school's formal or a sorrority or fraternity formal, it's definitely a time to be dressed to the nines! Before you even begin to start shopping, double-check the dress code and determine if the event is a formal or semi-formal. One great way to make sure you're buying the right outfit is to talk to upperclassmen who have attended the events before and ask what they've worn. If it's a semi-formal event, a cocktail dress is a great option. If the invitation says formal or black tie, it may be more appropriate to wear a full-length gown. Either way, it's always fun to dress up!

    Below are four dresses that we love for college formal events: two cocktail dresses for a semi-formal, and two full-length gowns for a formal event.

    Spring Semi-Formal Event

    Shail K. is a great designer to look at for cute, sexy cocktail dresses. The designer has two dresses that we absolutely love for spring formal events: style SK3195 and style SK3823.

    Shail K sk3195

    Shail K. style SK3195 has a hand beaded ombre pattern that's just gorgeous. The black, blue, purple color makes it perfect to wear any time of the year, so you can definitely get multiple uses out of this dress.

    Shail K sk3823

    With pastels being so in this season, Shail K SK3823 couldn't be any more perfect for Spring with the two colors it comes in: Peach (shown above) and Nude. The flowing layers and satin accentuated waist give the look of beauty and power, and the translucent fabric around the neck and sides let enough sexy peek through while keeping the untouchable aura of a goddess!

    Spring Formal Event

    For sexy formal gowns that aren't as glitz and glam as prom dresses can be, there are two designers that we love: Sherri Hill and La Femme. Both have evening gowns that are so perfect for a variety of formal or black tie affairs.

    Sherri Hill 8510

    Sherri Hill style 8510 is our favorite evening gown for Springtime. It's a simple yet elegant strapless sweetheart dress that has intricate beaded detail. We especially love the subtle high-low look on the dress. You'll also have a variety of colors to choose from that are all so perfect for springtime: Strawberry (shown above), Ivory, Pink, Purple, Turquoise, and Yellow!

    La Femme 18713

    La Femme style 18713 is a beautiful figure flattering dress with intricate beading on the bodice and soft gathers at the waist. The beading gives it such an elegant look, while not being over the top. The dress comes in a variety of different colors, such as Peacock (pictured above), Purple, Nude, Light Lime, and Peach. If your event is a black tie affair, this dress in Black is a perfect option.

  • Prom Trend of the Week: Printed Dresses

    This week's prom trend is one of our favorites because we love seeing different patterns and innovative looks every year. Printed dresses are so creative and are always fresh since there's so many different ways to wear the trend! A print dress will always be a showstopper; whether it's animal print or polka dots, you'll be sure to have the most memorable dress of the night!

    Printed dresses can either work with your figure or go against it, depending on the pattern and your body shape and height. So, just make sure to pick a pattern that suits your body type. If you find the right printed dress, it can be super figure flattering. Below are some of our favorite new patterned dresses for Prom 2013 - they are all great looks that certainly take the boredom out of a solid color dress!

    La Femme18969

    Sherri Hill 2813

    Tony Bowls 2351337

    La Femme 18017

    1. La Femme 18969 Rose Gold Gown - A unique sequined gown with a sweetheart neckline and contrasting pattern on the skirt. The chevron pattern is très chic. One of our favorites! If you're on the taller side, this is a great dress option - the chevron pattern will really work to give you a slimming figure.

    2. Sherri Hill 2813 Nude Evening Gown - Be the center of attention in this fitted floor length strapless jeweled gown. The unique beaded pattern on this dress takes the patterned dress trend to a new level by almost giving it a 3D look! The way the patterns are laid out on this dress should work to accent your curves.

    3. Tony Bowls Tony B 2351337 - A strapless printed chiffon A-line prom dress with a sweetheart neckline and gathered empire waist accented with chunky hand-beading. This is simply a fun dress, and a great way to wear print in a more simple way. The subtle ombre make this dress so on-trend, while the print gives off an artsy look.

    4. La Femme 18017 - Go wild in this blue one shoulder animal print ombre gown with a sexy front slit. The pleated bodice has cutouts leading to the back cutout and trimmed with sequins and beading. If you love animal print, this is such a fun way to rock the look. The ombre keeps the animal print from being too overpowering, since it fades into white at the bottom.
