  • Rissy Roo's Dress Testimonial: Macie Buch

    A new year always means lots of new events to attend, which gets us excited to not only help all of our Roo Girls find their perfect dresses, but to then get to see them all dressed up at their events! Our most recent dress testimonial comes from Macie Buch and her mom Jennifer Wyers-Buch. Macie recently attended her Majors ball and wore one of our favorite new looks from our Spring 2015 collection: Sherri Hill 32146. Jennifer sent us the below pictures of Macie and said:

    "Just thought we'd share a pic with the Rissy Roo's staff. This dress by Sherri Hill was the talk of the Majors Ball in Indianapolis last night. Thank you so much!!"

    We thought this picture was too cute! Macie certainly looked flawless in her leopard print Sherri Hill dress! The number she chose is a fun and flirty cocktail dress that features not only the stand-out leopard print full taffeta skirt, but also a shiny, chunky black beaded strapless bodice, hidden side pockets (which you can see in the picture of Macie blow), and a peek-a-boo layer of pink tulle underneath the skirt. It's such a chic look, and Macie showed it off so well!

    We loved everything about Macie's look - from her dress (of course), to her loose curls, simple makeup, and statement necklace. It's a perfect (flawless!) look for any semi-formal or formal event... from a Majors Ball, to Prom, or even a Sweet 16. We can definitely see why she was the talk of the night!

    Thank you, Jennifer and Macie, for sending in your pictures! We hope you had an amazing time at your ball, and we can't wait to see you dressed up for your next event. Cheer on!

      That's not all that's in the December LifeStyle Report, though! The magazine also has a whole article on what to wear at Holiday parties: gold, of course! Of their selection, they wrote, "These picks for the holiday season will have you effortlessly standing out from the crowd and looking, and feeling, like a celebrity. This year, make your holiday statement piece a head-turning gold dress, suitable for any occasion.

    When it comes to choosing a long dress, they featured one of the dresses that we have at Rissy Roo's: Tony Bowls style Tony B 2351317! It's a sequin dress with a halter neckline and pleated waistline that's accented with a contrasting hand-beaded medallion. It's one of our sale dresses - it was originally $458, but is now only $299. The LifeStyle Report mentions that it's a perfect dress to wear if you have a Holiday gala event or black-tie New Year's Eve party, and we couldn't agree more. The article's author, Alyson Boxman Levine wrote, "full-length and flowing, yet fitted in all the right places, this sparkly halter dress will quickly become your glamorous go-to favorite."

    And, if you love the short metallic number that's featured in this article, you can get the same look with Terani style C1329. It's a metallic bandage dress with a v neckline that's a classic look for a Holiday party or any other semi-formal event that you may have. Since it's a bandage dress, it will hug your curves in all the right ways!

    We hope you love these Holiday gift and outfit staples as much as we do! Happy Holiday shopping!

  • ** Trend Alert ** Prints Part I: Spotted!

    Open a fashion magazine lately? If you're reading this blog, I'd assume you have and if you took the time to flip through it, I'd assume you came across a page dedicated to Animal Prints.  Animal prints have gained momentum in our wardrobes. First we started with one piece, maybe a cardigan or a tank top. Next came Animal Prints in our jewelry and handbags, followed by shoes and now larger pieces like jackets and dresses. It is only right that we mention that this includes prom dresses.

    Many people assume that most Animal Prints are leopard.  This is an easy error and leopard, without a doubt, has been the most popular, but leopard, jaguar and cheetah are all similar to each other as you can see below.  The three are so similar and common that many of us assume one as the other. The chart below can help you to distinguish the difference in prints. Other popular prints this season include tiger, zebra and giraffe.

    Prom dress designers are jumping at the chance to use Animal Prints in their designs for Spring 2011. From the subtle hint of the print to the obvious and daring full print, Animal Prints are in this Prom. Check out a few of my favorite, "standard" Animal Print dresses... Continue reading
