When it comes to a more formal/semi-formal dress, Sherri Hill 32260 couldn't emit that hippie chic vibe any more perfectly! The allover delicate white lace covers bell sleeves, deep v-neck, and a keyhole cutout back on this short, elegant bohemian inspired cocktail dress. Beaded crystal and a gold empire waist adds just the right amount of sparkle. We love this dress for a fun and flirty after-prom look!

  • Prom 2015 Trends To Get Excited About!

    It's officially Prom Season again! All of the new Prom dresses are here, and this year's styles are just stunning. From sparkles to lace to two piece to ball gowns, there are so many gorgeous new looks to choose from that it almost makes it impossible to pick just one. While it can be hard to narrow it down to just one dress, there are certain things you can keep in mind and look out for to help narrow down your choices. One of those important 'check list' items is what's on-trend during a given season, which is what will be focused on here. There are five trends in particular that are set to be very popular for Prom 2015. If you want to ensure you're dressed just like celebrities and red carpet fashion this prom season, start your prom dress search by choosing from one of the below five trends!

    1. High Necklines

    Necklines can be overlooked at times, but they are are big contributor to framing your figure when it comes to choosing just about any outfit (from a prom dress to a work outfit to your causal every day clothes). When choosing a neckline, factor in your bust size, neck length, height, and even the shape of your face.

    High necklines have become popular lately because of their glamorous look and flattering attributes. For one, they make accessorizing easier since many have glitzy beading around the neck that mimics a necklace! In particular, look out for the high neckline halter tops that are gracing this year's prom dresses; they are considered a universally flattering neckline.

    Mori Lee 97052 High Neckline Halter Top Dress

    Mori Lee 97052 is an example of a high neckline halter top dress that would flatter just about any figure. It's a beautifully beaded high neck evening gown with a sexy open back and flowy chiffon skirt.

    2. Sheer Dresses

    Sheer dresses, also known as illusion dresses, were one of the hottest trends of 2014, and will continue to be at the top of the trends list for 2015. Sheer is all about showing off some skin in style and class, and this year's Spring 2015 dresses definitely achieve that.

    What's particularly great about the sheer trend is that you can rock the look as much or as little as you find comfortable. There are dresses that incorporate sheer from head to toe, and then there are dresses that only have sheer in certain areas, like on the bodice.

    Jovani 1255 Sheer Prom Dress

    Dress designer Jovani is all about sheer dresses this year; their Spring 2015 collection is full of a variety of sheer dresses. As an example, Jovani 1255 is a sheer dress that's great for just a little bit of sheer in a traditional ball gown prom dress look. This strapless ball gown features Continue reading

  • Makeup Monday: Au Natural Illuminated Beauty

    The Spring and Summer 2014 beauty spectrum is taking us from the very bold to the very natural. This new trend or "non-trend" of natural beauty has models, celebs, and street trend setters walking about with "barely there" natural painted faces. They are still wearing makeup, but this time it is only to conceal certain flaws, give extra definition to specific features, and bronze skin to give it a fresh, dewy glow!

    Chloe Model With a Natural Healthy Glow Chloe Model With a Natural Healthy Glow

    The Chloe model above is shown wearing MAC cosmetics and only has on the minimal. Makeup artists only used a sculpting cream to highlight her brow and cheekbones and a cream color base in bronze to give her face some little hints of color. Wow! She looks gorgeous! Perfect for a day at the beach in one of our rompers!

    Very Natural Emilio Pucci Model Very Natural Emilio Pucci Model

    "A strong girl who is naturally beautiful and doesn't need make-up," Lisa Butler said of the inspiration for the makeup of Emilio Pucci. We couldn't agree more with this philosophy. We think this beauty trend is empowering for all young women everywhere to finally embrace their own natural beauty and use makeup to accent their features instead of hiding them. The model above is only wearing MAC's face and body foundation in a shade slightly darker than her own to provide more glow, and natural shadows across the lid. The best part of this trend is not doing your hair! Use a dab of oil for frizzy strands or apply volumizing cream at the scalp and toss hair softly for beach like waves!

  • Fashion Friday: Printed Ankle Pants And Crop Tops

    Spring is in full swing and we are having so much fun with the Spring/Summer 2014 trends! What are we loving for this week's "Fashion Friday?" Flowy printed pants and an elegant crop top! The crop top is a difficult shirt to wear without looking overly provocative or sloppy, but the right top for your body plus the perfect pair of printed pants can make this an outfit to wear all weekend from afternoon shopping to an evening out to dinner with friends. A sleek jacket and an awesome pair of heels pull the outfit together for a surely show stopping look.

    Printed Ankle Pants

    Splendid "American Wildflowers Pant" Splendid "American Wildflowers" Pant

    Start with the perfect pair of printed pants! Even though the loose casual styles are trending, these pants can be more fitting as long as you feel confident and comfortable. With so many prints and lengths, the options are endless. We love this spring trend!

    Classic Solid Crop Top

    Dolce Vita "Romilda" Crop Top Dolce Vita "Romilda" Crop Top

    Crop tops are all the rage for Spring/Summer 2014! We love how versatile they are, whether paired with pants for a casual look, a nice skirt for something more formal, or even to the beach over your bathing suit, crop tops are here to stay! For a simple look that can be paired with any outfit, try something like the Dolce Vita "Romilda" crop top above. To rock the look at prom or homecoming, Dave & Johnny style 10003 is one of our favorite 2-piece dress looks to rock the crop top style.

    Don't forget: summer isn't here yet, so the weather is still fluctuating from warm to cool. So, to make sure you're not showing off too much skin when the cold air comes through, we suggest bringing a light casual jacket or blazer to tie the look together, especially after the sun goes down. Also, add a pair of fun high heels like the Night Moves by Allure Rihanna to lengthen your body and give this outfit an edge. What fashion piece are you obsessing over for the weekend? Comment below, and have a great weekend from all of us at Rissy Roo's!

  • Makeup Monday: the Must Have Orange Trend for Spring 2014

    From the runways of Paris to the streets of New York City, there is a fabulously bold makeup trend that is written (painted) on every girls face! Although soft pinks and ethereal silvers are also big for Spring/Summer 2014, it seems like shades of orange and coral are all the rage. This orange craze isn't just the new classic red lip either, as it has become a beauty staple on eyes and cheeks, too!

    Orange Makeup Runway ModelThis popping hue is so versatile and fun, it can be worn from morning to-night! Many girls have the misconception that these orange and coral shades can only be worn with certain skin tones, but the truth of the matter is they can be put on every face as long as the proper color is chosen and applied correctly. We recommend girls with warmer skin tones try something bright, perhaps with more tangerine notes. If you have cooler skin, try for something more bold and on the stronger coral/red side. Also, if choosing a matte orange lipstick, avoid adding anything extra like gloss and liner. Let the lips do all the talking!

    When adding this shade to cheeks and eyes, it will give a bright hint of sunshine. If you are tan it will give you the right amount of glow, while if you are more fair-skinned, it will give cheeks and eyes a beautiful, unique pop.

    Orange Eye MakeupJust remember when using these shades to try not to over-do it. Allow your face's natural beauty to add to the color, not the other way around. Try this trend for prom or any special occasion (Graduation, perhaps?) and I am sure everyone will be amazed how awesome you look!

  • Fashion Friday: Blazers for Spring 2014

    Since the seasons are changing, it has been quite the challenge to find the "perfect" look these days. Earlier this week, we talked about spring casual outfits, but there's one great spring look that we didn't mention: blazers! Until the weather is adequate for the more revealing summer wear, which we have been craving all winter, we find blazers are the perfect fashion piece to make any outfit look super trendy and complete! Plus, the look as been all over the runways.

    Spring BlazersAlthough prints are very "in" for the Spring/Summer 2014  season, a very minimalistic approach was taken by designers when it comes to blazers. As you can see above, a pastel blazer can be worn with shorts, a skirt, pants, or even a romper, and still look fabulous for day-to-day wear. A huge bonus by adding a blazer is you can still look great without a tremendous amount of trying or over doing-it by getting too dressed up. It will always have you looking both classic AND classy. The blazer is also the perfect piece of clothing to throw on after work for an event or special dinner!

    Spring 2014 BlazersAs you can see, this light jacket can be paired with any type of outfit and it doesn't have to be plain. From striped to polka dots, everything works for Spring 2014! If you want to wear pants, shorts or a skirt, a blazer if the perfect complement, and is the easiest way to dress an outfit up or down. If it's colder out on the night of your prom, you could even throw a blazer on over your prom dress for a cute extra layer! It's always fun to dress a blazer up with a less "business-y" look like a prom dress, as it makes for stand-out contrasts. How are you wearing your blazer this spring? Let us know, we would love to find out!

  • What To Wear Wednesday: Spring Casual Outfits

    Even though we all love the Spring sunshine, flowers, and the days of Summer rapidly approaching, Spring can be a tricky time of year to dress because of its "in between" weather stage. However, for this same reason, this is one of our favorite times to mix it up with unique combinations of clothing and accessories. Due to the warmer weather, you can pair jeans with a crop top, or a dress with a sleek leather jacket. The options are endless, making us obsessed with Spring/Summer 2014 fashion. This week, we are all about Spring casual outfits. Our 'What To Wear Wednesday' is a casual, yet cute outfit that can be worn any day (night) of the week!

    Rompers are a great way to get a dress look, while feeling a little more casual in shorts. This trend is so in right now, and it's one that you can easily take from day to night just by adding some accessories (and heels) to dress it up. We especially love the Shail K. 3468 Sleeveless Short Romper -
