  • Fashion Friday: Jumpsuits for Women

    There were a multitude of trends to hit us the Summer 2014 season, from bold Brazilian hues to feminine shapes and geometric prints. However, there was one trend that seemed manifest in every category from casual wear to more formal and daytime to night...the jumpsuit. The jumpsuit or romper (short version) has transitioned into fashion's biggest staple right before our eyes as it is so versatile, easy to wear, and the most trendy item in your closet right now. For this Fashion Friday: The Jumpsuit, we recognize this one piece wonder as fashion's biggest asset this Summer and into the Fall 2014 season.

    We love jumpers and rompers because they can be worn anywhere and you can do just about anything in one depending on the style. If you get a comfortable style for lounging, you can wear it around the house, to the beach or shopping. Put a jacket on, add some accessories, and you have a casual nighttime outfit.  If you have a special occasion or a more formal event to go to, opt for an embellished design like Shail K style 3494. Black, with sequin detail, a v-neckline, and a stunning silver beaded waist, this outfit is glamorous but not over the top. Perfect with a classic black heel, this jumpsuit is the modern spin on the perfect black dress.

    Maybe you have a weekend brunch,  birthday dinner, or a date with a special someone and you want to look fabulous, but you are sick of wearing dresses. Put on a jumper that sparkles like Shail K style 3495 in blush. The bold sequins balance the neutral color and allow the piece to be easily accessorized with some silver or platinum colored heels and jewelry! This jumper displays modern fun and classic elegance in one great outfit that can be worn time and time again. Each compliment you receive will be another reason to wear this dynamic ensemble!

    We love jumpsuits for women, and the trend has steadily grown over the last few years, even mading its way to the top of most celebrities and stylists "must have" lists. We are totally loving this craze and embrace it for Summer, Homecoming, and Fall 2014. How do you feel about this fashion forward trend? Share how you wear yours with us!

  • Summer Sweet 16 Party Ideas

    Turning 16 is special enough, but turning 16 in the summer can be even sweeter! For those having a festive party to honor this pastime, we put together some Summer Sweet 16 party ideas. Let's face it, many spectacular parties can be held year round, but certain ideas are much better fit for the Summer months due to nicer weather, more time to plan, and not so many conflicts in schedules. Of course, all Summer Sweet 16 party ideas are fabulous, but we figured a little creativity can go a long way, to make your party all the more extraordinary!

    Although this party theme can be done any month of the year, we feel the idea tends to be much more "authentic" if it is done outdoors. Depending on the size of your party, we like Continue reading

  • Makeup Monday: Brazil Beauty Trends!

    It's time for Makeup Monday Brazil Beauty Trends! With Brazil as the official host of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the gorgeous country has been an inspiration for fashion and beauty trends all over the world. Full of bronzed beauties and bright colors, it is no wonder this season's best makeup and beauty trends are bold, vivid hues and beach worthy looks! Here are few of our favorites to turn you into a Brazilian bombshell before you know it!

    Neon Nails

    It is always fun to rock a neon manicure, but it's not always appropriate. Sometimes neon polishes can be too aggressive, which is why you need to choose wisely. However, OPI recently launched a 12 color collection inspired by the Brazil fever with bold polishes that aren't too over powering. We love the bright yellow, subtle not so neon "I Just Can't Cope-acabana."

    Vibrant Timesavers

    Summer is supposed to be about effortless beauty so we spend more time on the beach and less time getting ready to dance the night away...or at least that is the energy we get from Brasil! We love easy makeup products like The Santigolden Age Double-Ended Limitless Liner by Smashbox. It has two ends with two color options, and the creamy pencil is not only super easy to apply, but lasts 8 hours! Amazing!

    Go Bronze

    Although all of us wish we could spend everyday at the beach, sometimes it isn't that realistic, or healthy for the matter. While catching some rays in moderation has great health benefits, it can be difficult to get that dark bronze glow without overdoing it. Have no fear ladies, because amazing self-tanners are here to save the day! Our hand down, all time favorite at Rissy Roo's is the Self Tan Lux Oil by St. Tropez. Good news: it keeps your skin super soft with an awesome bronze glow that lasts and looks like you put in some serious hours in the sand. Bad news: it's kind of pricey, about $50 for a 3.38 oz bottle. However, you do not need to apply much and it will save your skin from harsh UV rays and wrinkles down the line!

    Even though these trends are Brazil inspired, we want to see how our Roo Girls wear them! Have any Brazil beauty tips you tried or want to share?

  • Hot Summer 2014 Quinceanera Trends!

    Is your 15th birthday rapidly approaching? Thinking of celebrating your Quinceanera soon? Summer is such an exciting time for you and your community to embrace this remarkable pastime, which you will cherish forever! Even though this tradition is held in many Latin, Central, and South American countries differently, the concept and value are still the same. It is important for families to recognize a young lady's presentation into society as a woman. The word "Quinceanera" actually refers to the young girl (15-year old) being celebrated and the ritual of a party and mass where this young girl presents herself to God and the community, honoring both herself and her religion. The Quineanera is a timeless tradition and should be carried out through generations of beautiful, talented young women!

    Quinceanera With Her CourtOf course, much planning goes into this special party, and we cannot forget the best part...the DRESS! Girls put much thought and effort into picking the perfect dresses for themselves and their court to match their theme and personality. Of course, trends are always changing, but traditional is always in! Many girls go with a standard princess-like, extra full, ball gown style dress. This season there are some newer colors and patterns, like animal print, but the most popular dresses are still the traditional ones. The trendiest colors for Summer 2014 Quinceanera's are pink, blue, white, and some pastel shades, however blue seems to take the cake! We pick Vizcaya by Mori Lee style 88001 in Deep Aqua for the ruffled organza skirt and beaded corset bodice!

    For something more sophisticated and without so much ruffle, we adore Vizcaya by Mori Lee 88066 in either white, champagne, or light blue. The bow accent is very glamorous and the jeweled bodice is breathtaking!

     No Quinceanera would be complete without shoes, and for some, several pairs! In fact, many ceremonies have a "changing of the shoes" where the girl's father will take off the honorary girl's low heels, and replace them with a high heel, as a sign off stepping into womanhood. Many Quince's will have three pairs of shoes including flats to dance in, or to be comfortable towards the end of the celebration. The trend for Summer 2014 in this category is pretty spread out including pink heels, metallic platforms, glittery sandals, and even strappy, colorful heels with tassels of favorite soccer teams! The options are limitless, so it's a good thing some get to choose more than one pair! We like the Jilly by Night Moves Metallic Heels, and the Gail by Sweetie's Strappy Sandal!

    Once the party outfit is put together, it's time to think about hair! Most girls like to wear a tiara or crown, but some go without it. As far as Quince hairstyles, the traditional way is to wear a simple, age appropriate up-do or hair flowing and pinned half up. Nothing over the top to take away from the dress or a girl's natural beauty, but something elegant and off the eyes and face. Many girls like to accent their hair with flowers or crystal jewels, or match their hair with their damas (fellow girl court members).

    Getting everything together for this special day can take many months of planning and organizing so don't forget to start early! Having the perfect look is a major part, and we are always here to help! Stay tuned for more Quinceanera trends and updates!

  • 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!

    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!
