    Madonna is a great inspiration for girls, so of course today is a perfect time to turn to her for inspiration. One of her most famous quotes is a great reminder to follow your dreams:

    "I stand for freedom of expression, doing what you believe in, and going after your dreams."

    So, Happy International Women's Day 2014! Will you be doing something special to celebrate the day? Leave us a comment below!

      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!

    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."

  • Fangtastic Halloween Style with LBDs!

    With Halloween only a week away, our newsletter this week was all about dressing up for the day of fright, fun, and lots and lots of candy! If you didn't get our newsletter, or just didn't get a chance to read it, we wanted to make sure write a post about it, as well, as we know how difficult it can be to put a perfect Halloween outfit together.

    If you're stuck on what to wear, finding a sexy little black dress is always a choice you can count on. Two LBDs that we especially love for Halloween are Sticks & Stones by Mori Lee style 9200 and Dave & Johnny 8580.

    Mori Lee 9200 is a strapless sweetheart cocktail dress with all over lace details. It's a sexy look that also comes in a Black/Nude color that can be paired with so may different accessories to make a limitless amount of different Halloween looks.

    Dave & Johnny 8580 is a dress that we posted a few days ago in our Get Bewitched and Vamped Up for Halloween blog post. It's a dress that's a perfect combination of cute and sexy with the sheer, lace, sparkle, and tulle details.

    Pair your favorite LBD with stand-out heels like Touch Ups Blake Platform Boot Pump or Baylee by Sizzle Black Beaded Pumps to finish off the dark, sophisticated look. Then, just pick out the accessories of the Halloween character you'd like to be, such as a witch's hat, a masquerade mask, cat ears, or a floral headband and Dia de Los Muertos face paint, to get that FANGtastic Halloween style!

  • Happy International Women's Day!

    It's all over Twitter, and it's even today's Google Image, but if you haven't heard yet, today, March 8th, is International Women's Day! Since at Rissy Roo's we're here to help women feel beautiful, we wanted to dedicate today's blog post towards this special day.

    Audrey Hepburn once said a great quote that we think represents the modern woman so well:

    “I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

    Harness Audrey's insightful thoughts today and feel proud to be a woman, because today is our day! And, make sure to spread the love to the other women in your lives. As we said on twitter, #GirlsRunTheWorld, afterall!

    Happy International Women's Day!
