Valentine's Day

  • Crushing Hard On These Red Valentine's Day Dresses

    So, we already know that you have a general idea of how you'll do your Valentine's Day makeup look, but the special day is quickly approaching and it's certainly time to put the rest of your outfit together. Whether going on a date with your significant other of a long time, a first date with a new love interest, attending a high school dance, or having a night out with your BFFs, we love Valentine's Day (no pun intended) because it's a perfect excuse to rock a dress.

    While you can certainly wear any type or color of dress that your heart desires (pun intended!) on V-Day, black (think LBD), red, pink, and purple tend to be the colors of choice for the holiday. Since Valentine's Day is especially known for red, check out our favorite looks below to rock the radiant color and stand out no matter where you are on February 14th. Trust us - you'll be crushing hard on these red Valentine's Day dresses!

  • In LOVE with RED for Prom!

    Valentine's Day is almost here, so of course the colors of red, pink, and purple are top of mind for us Roo Girls right now. While there are so many beautiful Valentine's Day dresses to choose from in all of our favorite V-Day colors, we're in that prom mood and are obsessing over radiant red prom dresses. Check out some of our favorite red dresses for Prom 2016 below!

  • First Date Makeup Mistakes According To Men

    With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it's time to not only start looking for your perfect V-Day dress, but to begin thinking of the rest of your outfit, too, from accessories to makeup. Valentine's Day can be difficult to plan outfits for, as it's a day where you really want to look your best. It can be an especially sensitive day in deciding what to wear if you're single looking to go out with your BFFs for a single night out, or if you're in a new relationship where you're still feeling things out.

    While it can be tempting to go all-out with a sexy outfit and lots of makeup, POPSUGAR surveyed a group of men about first-date makeup "don'ts" for the big day, and their responses were surprising! POPSUGAR explained, "We spend so much time looking at celebrities and trying to emulate their looks, from intense contouring to overdrawing our lips. It's lovely to admire other women and try new things with our hair and makeup looks, but don't take their aesthetic to heart." Watch what the men have to say in the video below and you'll see why!

    Pretty surprising, right? In a totally good way, of course! The three takeaways when it comes to getting that perfect more natural Valentine's Day first date makeup look that POPSUGAR discussed in the video are:

    • Avoid bold lipstick. All those shades gals usually love turn out to not be such big hits for guys! But, don't be afraid to be yourself, either - if you feel the most comfortable in bold lipstick, that's okay, too.
    • Use a light hand with your foundation. The men in the video explained that they are fans of the more natural look, so going too heavy on foundation can go against this.
    • Don't go overboard on eye makeup. So, you may want to tone down that smokey eye makeup look that's become so popular over the years.

    However you decide to dress and do your makeup for Valentine's Day, just remember to choose the look you're most comfortable in, as the most important thing is to be comfortable and confident. The rest will fall into place!

  • Red Sweetheart Dance Dresses for a Lovely Valentine's Day

    With Valentine's Day right around the corner, we know that it means that it's also time for Sweetheart Dances! So, to make sure that all of our Roo Girls are ready to go, we wanted to pick out our favorite sweetheart dance dresses for a fun night of celebrating V-day. Last year, we showed you both red and pink dresses that could be worn to a Sweetheart Dance, but this year there's so many absolutely gorgeous red dresses that we're obsessing over the classic V-Day color. Check them out below!

    Dave and Johnny 10456

    Dave & Johnny style 10456 has us gushing for Valentine's Day! This short tulle dress is so perfect for V-Day with its high illusion neckline, sequin bust, cap sleeves, illusion back, and little bits of lace around the neckline. It's a great combination of glam and sultry for a Sweetheart Dance.

    Terani p3003

    Terani style P3003 is a perfect pick for lots of pretty lace, tulle, and the so popular sheer. This strapless sweetheart dress has a flared mesh skirt and sheer bodice that's accented with lace appliqué and is great if you're looking for more of a classic prom-style look for your Sweetheart Dance dress. This dress also comes in an Ivory/Nude color, so if you want to stay away from the classic red V-Day look, this dress may be for you. Ivory and White dresses are definitely a perfect way to still show your love for the holiday if you don't like red!

    sherri hill 21185 red nude dress

    For a fitted cocktail dress look, we love Sherri Hill style 21185. It's a unique cocktail dress with an asymmetrical neckline and funky embellished one sleeve dress. With a form fitted mini skirt, this dress is sure make an impression. This dress comes in so many different colors other than the Red/Nude color above: Black/Nude, Navy/Nude, and Nude. An LBD is also always a great option for a Sweetheart Dance, so choosing this dress in the Black/Nude color option is definitely a great choice, as well! It also comes in a gown version, which is Sherri Hill style 21002.

    These dresses are also all perfect for Prom and are all part of our new Spring 2014 Prom Dress collection. So, whether for a Sweetheart Dance or Prom, you'll look as pretty as ever in these sexy red numbers!

     Michi Marshall recently attended the 3rd Annual National Football League Honors Awards Ceremony, where she looked fierce wearing Claudine for Alyce style 2324!

  • Dress of the Week: Sherri Hill 21187

    There were so many beautiful Sherri Hill dresses worn during this year's Miss USA pageant, that we couldn't possibly fit them all into one (or two!) posts. Sherri Hill style 21187 was one dress that we loved, but didn't mention in our Miss USA 2013 posts earlier this week. So, we decided to give it a special shout-out and make it our Dress of the Week!

    Miss Nebraska Sherri Hill 21187

    Miss Nebraska wore this sexy red lace dress during the pageant, and she looked absolutely breathtaking! It hugged her curves so well, and the nude coloring made her tan skin glow even more. We also loved the statement necklace she wore with the dress - it complimented the lace in the dress so well and gave her such an elegant look!

    Sherri Hill 21187 red lace dress

    Sherri Hill style 21187 is a glamorous short cocktail dress complete with classy and chic lace design and scalloped hem. It's such a pretty minidress for graduation, homecoming, a semi-formal party, or just a fun night out! It comes in a variety of colors, such as black, blue, ivory, navy, and blush. We love how the variety of colors this dress comes in lets you dress it up with a more formal color like black, or even give it a more summery look by choosing the ivory or light blue color. It definitely makes it an easy dress to wear to so many different social occasions...or maybe even on stage at a pageant like Miss Nebraska!
