  • 3 Perfect White Dresses For Summer 2015 From Blush Prom

    With Spring and Summer here, it's officially Dress Season and we couldn't be more excited at Rissy Roo's! So, Prom and Graduation may be over, but warm weather means there's plenty of reasons to wear a dress. No matter what summer event or party you're attending, summer is a great time to wear white dresses, especially with how popular the color has become over the past couple of years.

    Dress designer Blush Prom by Alexia recently released their Fall 2015 line, and many of their brand new dresses are all about the color white! So, while these dresses are technically part of their new Homecoming line, we're totally obsessing over them for summer time, too. Check out three of our favorite white Blush Prom dresses below and rock the new styles now for summer, rather than waiting for prom!

    Black by Blush C319

    Could there be a better combination than two-piece and white in one dress for the summer? After seeing Black by Blush C319, we're not sure there is! This chic and sleek two piece jersey knit features a tank style crop top that's encrusted with opaque color coordinating beadwork and a rouged pencil skirt accented with a belt of matching beading. Dresses like this can be extra fun because you can mix and match the skirt and top with other styles of your choosing over and over again. This two piece dress also features a cut-out open back. While it's shown in the color Off White above, this dress also comes in Black.

    Black by Blush C310

    Black by Blush C310 is a sleek jersey knit sheath that features a beaded high neck, eye catching keyhole back, and a finished hem trimmed with matching metallic beading. This dress is especially great for a formal event. While it's featured in Off White/Gold above, it also comes in Coral Pink/Gold - both great colors for spring, summer, or fall!

    Black by Blush C320

    Black by Blush C320 is all about lovely lace! It's a strapless cocktail dress with a modified sweetheart neckline constructed of thick netting and overlaid all over with gently beaded lace appliques. This is also a great dress for a formal event, but could also easily be dressed down for a night out with friends, too.

    We hope you love these white dresses as much as we do! Whether for a summer party or Homecoming, these looks will have you looking on-trend, with all eyes on you.

    Sherri Hill teamed up with Sadie Robertson to create an original collection of prom dresses for Spring 2014. The "Sadie Robertson Live Original" collection by Sherri Hill is retro inspired, has "Willie approved" dress lengths, and definitely has something for every prom girl.

    When coming up with the collaboration, Sherri Hill explained that inspiration came from seeing girls all around the country emphasizing with Sadie while watching her try to find a dress in the Duck Dynasty "Homecoming Episode" last year. Sherri Hill said, "This year, Sadie won't have any problem finding a prom dress that she loves and that makes her dad happy."

    Following in the footsteps of Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Sadie will walk the runway in Sherri Hill's New York Fashion Week show on September 9th. She'll also be featured in the Spring 2014 lookbook!

    Sherri Hill is one of the go-to designers for young Hollywood celebrities red carpet moments and performances, including Selena Gomez, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, and Bella Thorne. So, it's definitely no surprise that Sherri Hill is teaming up with Sadie this year!

    The "Sadie Robertson Original" collection will be available in Spring 2014, so keep a look-out! We'll definitely make sure to update you as the dresses come in for Prom Season!

     

  • 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.

  • Pretty Pastels and Lace to wear on Easter and Passover

    Move over winter, Spring is officially here, and it's time to celebrate Easter and Passover to ring in the warmer weather! Even though it's still a little nippy out, there's no better time to get in the Spring spirit than Easter and Passover time. While it's always necessary to look fashionable, it's also important to wear ensembles that are reasonably conservative since you'll be around family members.

    Pastel hues, florals, and lace are so in this Spring, so we picked our favorite looks for Easter and Passover. The dresses we chose are from Sherri Hill and Dave & Johnny because these designers always make great dresses that are perfect for a variety of different occasions. No matter where your spring holiday plans take you, these fancy frocks will not only have you in perfect fashionista form, but you can easily wear them right through the rest of the season (and even into summer!).

    Sherri Hill 2941

    Our absolute favorite dress for the Spring holidays is Sherri Hill style 2941. Of course, Kylie Jenner looks amazing in it, but that's not the only reason we love this dress so much! This ornately embroidered mini dress is so perfect for Easter - the cap sleeves make the dress family appropriate and the lace gives it such an elegant look. We especially love the Blush color it comes in for Spring, but it also comes in plenty of other colors, too, if pink isn't your first choice.

    Sherri Hill 21131

    Another dress that we love from this designer is Sherri Hill style 21131. This short, banded dress is so perfect for any occassion - from nights out with friends, to formal events. If you plan on wearing this for Easter, we just recommend that you pair it with a cardigan to give it a more conservative look.

    Dave and Johnny 8679

    Dave & Johnny style 8679 is a short pink dress with lace overlay throughout that's easy to dress up or down depending on the event you're attending. It's a simple, but feminine look that's perfect for the Springtime.

    Dave and Johnny 8472

    Dave & Johnny style 8472 is another cocktail dress that's great for Easter and Passover. The dress is covered with a floral lace overlay, and the waist is accented with a ribbon detail that ties to the side. It's such an on-trend feminine look, and works especially well if your event is on the more formal side.

    No matter which number you choose, we recommend pairing the dress with a cute cardigan. Depending on how formal your event is, it's always good to have the option of covering up your shoulders. And, of course, since it's still a little cold out, it will keep you warmer!
