Little Black Dress

  • Little Black Dress Halloween Costumes for a Witchin' Good Look!

    Halloween is so close, and we're getting excited to dress up as our favorite characters on the 31st! It's always difficult to choose and put together your costume, but there's one great way to look super chic for Halloween: little black dresses!

    Rock an LBD for a Fangtastic Halloween Style! Little black dresses are so versatile, and always chic, so we love the idea of pairing an LBD with your favorite Halloween accessories for a glamorously ghoulish look. Two dresses that we particularly love are shown above: Night Moves style 6658 and Jeweled Pencil Dress style 78415.

    Fangtastic Vampire Style

    We love Night Moves 6685 to rock a sexy glam rock vampire look. Sexy and sophisticated, this dress features a sheer illusion sleeve detail accented with crystals. The long sleeves makes it perfect for a cold fall Halloween night, and allows it to easily transition into winter for a Holiday Party dress (we especially love this look for New Year's Eve)! For Halloween, just pair it with vampire teeth, dark red lipstick, dark red or purple eyes, and glamorous red jewelry. We also love the idea of pairing it with a leather jacket to complete that glam rock look.

    In the above outfit, we paired the LBD with Helen's Heart style JE-4601-10 red earrings, Rihanna by Night Moves platform high heels, and Magid E7496 beads and rhinestones satin box clutch. All items that you can easily rock again for Homecoming, Prom, or the Holidays!

    Witchin LBD Look

    Jeweled Pencil Dress style 78415 is perfect to rock a witch look for Halloween! This jeweled neck dress features body defining style lines, open sides, and an invisible back zipper. For Halloween, pair it with a chic witch hat, a witch's broom, and funky jewelry. for an extra witchy look, pair it with striped stockings - we love either orange and black or purple and black striped stockings for that classic witch look.

    To finish off this look, we paired the dress with Magid E7486 jeweled box clutch, Hyacinth Crystal Chandelier Earrings JF103E32G3, and Baylee by Sizzle sexy beaded pumps.

    Of course, a little black dress is so easy to dress up in any way, so whether a classic Halloween look like a vampire or a witch that we showed above...or something a little less scary like a 1920s flapper girl or cute black cat...you'll be able to rock a totally haute Halloween look, and then take that dress right into the Holidays and New Year!

Well, just because Super Bowl Sunday is all about the two best NFL football teams are coming together to battle it out for the biggest win of the year doesn't mean that there can't be some fashion involved!

     Michi Marshall recently attended the 3rd Annual National Football League Honors Awards Ceremony, where she looked fierce wearing Claudine for Alyce style 2324! The NFL Honors Awards Ceremony was held before the Super Bowl on Saturday, February 1, 2014. The mini dress that she chose to walk the red carpet in couldn't have been any more perfect! It's a beaded mini dress with a bateau neckline, beaded illusion sleeves and a deep v back. The beadwork gives this short dress the perfect touch of elegance for a red carpet event, and the long sleeves makes it so great for the winter time!

    We also love Michi's choice for her NFL Honors red carpet dress because it's getting us in the mood for Valentine's Day! It's a perfectly sexy look for the day of love with the open back and sheer long sleeves. Best yet, since it's an LBD, you'll get so much use out of it year-round!

  • Dress of the Week: Night Moves 7045

    With Christmas Eve finally here, of course we had to pick out a special dress this week that was reminiscent of the the holiday. That's why this week's Dress of the Week is Night Moves style 7045, and we're sure that you can guess why!

    Night Moves 7045

    Night Moves 7045 is a one-shoulder short cocktail dress in a stretch jersey fabric, with a neckline that's embellished with beautiful beads and crystals. The dress comes in two colors: Red and Black. The Red version of this dress has us so excited for Christmas - the color it comes in couldn't be any more Christmas-y, and the stunning beadwork reminds us of beautiful ornaments on a Christmas tree! If you have a formal Christmas party to attend, this is definitely a great choice. The color will have you in the Christmas mood, and the one-shoulder long sleeve is perfect for the winter months.

    Night Moves 7045f-black_1 400x560

    The Christmas-y red color this dress comes in isn't the only reason we chose it as our Dress of the Week, though. With Christmas here, we know that New Year's Eve is the next big night just around the corner. And, this dress is just as great for Christmas as it is for an NYE party! While you could wear it in red if you want a stand-out NYE look, we especially love this dress in black for New Year's Eve. It's a classic look that you'll not only get use out of on NYE, but you'll be able to wear it time and time again!

  • Choosing the Perfect New Years Eve Outfit

    Still stuck on what to wear for New Year's Eve? Don't worry, we wouldn't leave you hanging on one of the most important nights out of the year! Every year, we choose our favorite cocktail dresses to wear on NYE, but this year we're going one step further and showing you exactly how to put your own perfect New Years Eve outfit together from head to toe.

    Check out the image below - it will take you from choosing the right hairstyle to wear with your dress depending on the dress' style, to how to properly accessorize your look, to trendy dress styles to consider wearing, to even the shoes to wear on your feet. It will definitely help you put together a New Years outfit that everyone will be envying!

    Choosing the Perfect New Years Eve Outfit

    how to choose 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!

  • Jennifer Lawrence at The Hunger Games: Catching Fire NYC Premiere!

    Much like the Victory Tour that takes Katniss, played by Jennifer Lawrence, and Peeta, Josh Hutcherson, through the 12 districts after their win in the deadly Hunger Games, the stars of the sequel have spent the past week traveling the world, with premiere stops in London, Berlin, Madrid, Rome and Paris. Now, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire stars are finally finishing up their premiere back in the U.S. The movie just premiered in Los Angeles earlier this week, and last night they were in New York City.

    Since we're all about dresses at Rissy Roo's, we've of course have been paying full attention to Jennifer's looks on the red carpet. We loved her see-through gown at the L.A. premiere, but we're especially loving the cute little black dress she wore last night in NYC!

  • Easy Ways to Dress Up for Halloween

    Halloween is tomorrow, so if you have not put your costume together yet, time is officially almost out! But, that doesn't mean it's too late. There's plenty of last minute ideas you can put together to show your Halloween spirit. Below are fabulously easy ways you can dress up a dress (we recommend a little black dress) for a perfect night of Trick or Treat fun.

    1. Spooky Tights

    There's no better way to add a unique flavor to your dress than to pair it with funky tights. Whether for Halloween or the Holidays, tights are always fun accessories. For Halloween, we're loving the skeleton, spider web, and haunted house we've been seeing all over Pinterest!

    Haunted House Halloween tights

    Haunted House Halloween tights like these will really have you looking like a fan of the Holiday! It's as easy as pairing it with a black shirt or LBD and black heels or boots for a look that will have you being in the Halloween spirit without having to go all-out with a costume.

    skeleton Halloween tights

    These skeleton tights are perfect for pairing with an LBD and a skeleton mask or Dia de Los Muertos makeup!

    Spider web Halloween tights

    These spider web tights are so chic! Pair it with an LBD and a witch's hat and high heels for a totally classy Halloween look.

    Look at your local Halloween store, Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, or H&M for creepy Halloween tights like these.

    2. Animal Ears

    Pairing animal ears with an LBD is always a dependable way to go. Rather than picking up a pair at your local Halloween store, if you have the time, make them yourself! A wire headband, felt, and studs will have you on your way to some purrrfect cat ears (or bunny...or bear ears) to rock!

    3. Makeup!

    Makeup is a girl's best friend, right? Well, it certainly couldn't be any more true on Halloween. Makeup will bring your whole look together, and there's plenty of costume ideas you can put together on makeup alone! One of the big trends this Halloween season is Dia de los Muertos skulls. All you have to do is get some black, white, yellow, and red paint and make your face into a colorful and flowery skull! Below are some of our favorite ideas when it comes to painting your face into a skull.

    This is such a chic Halloween look, so don't be afraid to show off your creative skills if you decide to go with this costume idea! Dulce Candy's Sugar Skull/Dia de los Muertos Tutorial + DIY is a great video to watch if you want to try this look; check out her video below. It can just be time consuming to apply all of the makeup, so make sure to leave plenty of time for this one. And, just make sure to clean your face at the end of the night so the makeup isn't sitting on your skin for any longer than it needs to.
