  • Our New Fave Indie Pop Band: Dresses!

    We love dresses at Rissy Roo's, so of course we're obsessing over the new indie pop band that has the very namesake of our favorite piece of clothing! The band Dresses is only made up of two people, Timothy and Jared, a couple from Portland.

    Dresses the band

    Their songs are infectious indie-pop tunes that will have you wanting to get up and dance (in dresses, of course). Their first big hit is for song "Sun Shy," a fun, catchy tune that frontlady Timothy Heller is of course wearing a cute dresses in! 

    Check out their hit single here:

    Want to learn more about the band? Teen Vogue caught up with the Timothy, the leading lady, to talk all about Dresses, how her and her boyfriend met, and what music she's loving right now. Our favorite part of the interview with Teen Vogue was hearing who influences her.

    "Just listening to the female singers that I look up to is inspiring when I'm writing music. I try to channel my role models, and I can tell it makes me write better music and definitely influences what it sounds like."

    Girl power all the way!

  • Prom Looks Straight from the Runway (Models)

    Finding the perfect prom dress is of course a very important (and sometimes difficult) task. And, every girl unquestionably dreams of wearing the most fashionable frock on prom night. If you could choose your dress right off the Fashion Week Runway, who wouldn't jump at that chance?? That's why we loved Teen Vogue Magazine's latest article -  they sat down with some of fashion's stars to talk all about prom memories and what they wore! The models they talked to were Karlie Kloss, Ali Stephens, Jacquelyn Jablonski, Andie Arthur, and Kelly Mittendorf, and all of their stories were great. We especially loved Jacquelyn's and Karlie's stories, though - check them out below!

    Jacquelyn Jablonski

     

    Jacquelyn Jablonski, pictured ready for prom in her white dress in Teen Vogue's image above, is a model from Rissy Roo's home state - New Jersey! She started her modeling career at just 15 years old, so she was always up to date on the biggest trends to wear at prom. She has been a model in campaigns for many famous designers, such as Givenchy, Pucci, Hermes, J. Crew, Tommy Hilfiger, and Max Mara. She's even been a part of H&M and Gap's campaigns!

    When Jacquelyn talked to Teen Vogue about prom, she said:

    "I chose a white dress. I decided on white because I had worn a mint green dress the year before and felt like everyone wears color. Also, I could accessorize more with white—I wore my mom's big vintage necklace."

    That's definitely great advice to keep in mind for those who love accessorizing - going with a more simple dress can mean more room for fun jewelry and shoes!

    Karlie Kloss

    Karlie Kloss, pictured all dressed up for prom on the left in Teen Vogue's photo above, started modeling at 14 years old, so she always got to take her fashion knowledge to prom, too! She is ranked on the Top 50 Models Women list by Models.com, and Vogue Paris named her one of the top 30 models of the 2000s. So, you can guess that just like Jacquelyn, she's modeled for the best of the best in the fashion industry - Christian Dior, Lacoste, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, Oscar de la Renta, and many more.

    As far as prom goes, Karlie told Teen Vogue:

    "It was special to be able to wear dresses fresh off the runway to my high school dances! Even though nobody else ever knew who or what I was wearing, I did, and it always made me feel like a princess."

    We're sure Karlie truly did look like a princess! If you want to read more from Karlie and Jacquelyn and the other models Teen Vogue talked to, check out their "Our Favorite Models Tell Us About Their Prom Looks" article.

  • Luxe Lace for the Holidays

    Even though Spring and Summer are gone, many of the fashion trends of the two warm seasons have been sticking around in Fall, and don't plan on going anywhere for the Winter. Lace is one of those trends. But, it's not only the darker lace colors like blue and black that are popular right now - the lighter looks like ivory, white, and nude are sticking around for the colder months, too.

    Teen Vogue mentioned that the lead designers have been freshening up their Fall runways with the lace trend. Simone Rocha, Dolce & Gabbana, and Michael Kors all had lots of lace (in both dark and light colors) throughout their Fall Winter 2012/2013 Fashion Shows. Check out our favorite outfits from their runway shows below.

    Lace is definitely a classy way to dress up any outfit, and it without a doubt exudes the look and feel of the Holidays. The fabric is great to wear to a number of Holiday events - from Christmas parties with your family, Holiday parties with co-workers, or a New Year's Eve night out with friends.  Below are some of our favorite lace cocktail dresses that are similar to what the designers are showing off in their Fall/Winter fashion shows.

    Wearing the lighter lace colors to holiday events is a great way to stand out in the crowd if you want a bolder look; but, choosing a darker lace fabric is always a classic for the holidays, and you'll still be sure to turn heads. Do you like the lighter colors for the Fall/Winter months? Leave a comment below!
