Miss America in Tony Bowls at the American Country Countdown Awards

The 2014 American Country Countdown Awards was held this past Monday night in Nashville, TN, and it was an amazing show! As much as we loved the show, of course our favorite part was watching all the celebrities walking the red carpet in their stunning outfits. The lady celeb looks really amazed us at this awards ceremony! Many of the ladies wore dresses sexy, sparkly dresses that would be so perfect for a new year’s eve outfit, so they were definitely inspiring us for the biggest night of the year!

Miss America in Tony Bowls TS21452 at the ACCAs!

While there were so many looks that we loved, our best dressed of the night goes to Miss America Kira Kazanstev! She wore Tony Bowls TS21452, and it looked so gorgeous on her! This is a jersey short dress with long sleeves and jewel neckline that features a full length back zipper and gold beading. This dress is all about the accenting embroidered sparkles, and we love how they follow all the way down to wrist-grazing sleeves. Plus, the sparkles match her stunning blonde hair in such a perfect way. We loved how she let her hair be an accessory to this dress with her side fishtail braid. Our favorite part about her outfit? How she brought it all together with a touch of bold red on her nails!

From head to toe, this is a perfect outfit to rock for New Year’s Eve. All you need to finish off Kira’s look is a small black clutch, like Magid E7486 Jeweled Box Clutch, and a pair of black high heels. If you have other formal holiday parties to attend, such as a Christmas party, the long sleeves makes this dress a versatile option for a number of different occasions during the winter months. Kira rocked the dress without stockings, but don’t be afraid to wear stockings with this dress for those colder December and January winter nights!

Happy First Night of Hanukkah 2015!

Today’s the day – the Holidays are officially here! Tonight marks the first night of the eight days of Hanukkah, so we wanted to wish all of our Roo Girls that are celebrating a very Happy Hanukkah!

Happy Hanukkah from Rissy Roo's!

Hanukkah is all about bold blues and sparkly golds and silvers, so it’s a holiday that we’re all about dressing up for! Whether on your nails or with a cute dress, rock the colors in proudly! We love the idea of showing off the symbols of the holidays on your nails like the nail art above. You can find hanukkah  nail decals at your local nail shop for an easy way to get this look, or try painting the images on yourself! You can use tape to keep the lines straight. Or, get a pretty blue and gold look above with dress Alyce 3585! It’s a strapless sweetheart party dress that has a pleated bodice with matching applique and beads that run from bust to waist. It’s definitely a perfect dress to celebrate the Festival of Lights in!

Blue and gold cocktail dresses, of course, work for Christmas and New Year’s, too, so don’t be afraid to rock a look like this for multiple holiday parties. Have fun lighting the first candle tonight, and we hope your presents are full of fashion pieces you love!

Wear It Now And Later: Sequin Crop Top

The holidays are all about dressing up and going from party to party – an activity that every fashionista loves! But, sometimes it can be difficult to rock a new look for every single party, so mixing and matching is an essential part of any girl’s holiday party wardrobe.

A couple of weeks ago we showed you 4 LBDs under $100 that can easily be mixed and matched with different accessories to wear both now and later, from day to night. This week, we’re showing you one of our favorite accessories to help attending all of your holiday parties that much easier: our Sequin Crop Top T16758!

Wear It Now And Later: Sequin Crop Top

Sequin Crop Top T16758 is a stunning compliment to any party look. We especially love this crop top for the holidays because of its stand-out sparkly sequins, of course! It’s a perfect option to add a little sparkle to any holiday outfit, whether the event’s during the day or at night, with family or with friends. So, the photo above shows you how you can easily wear this look both now and later! You can rock it with jeans and a black tank top for a toned-down look for during the day at a family get-together or casual party. Then, step it up a notch for a nighttime holiday party by wearing it over a little black dress or with a cute skirt. In the photo above, the sequin crop top is paired with baby-doll flare dress D16988 and Bow by Jonathan Kayne open toe shoes.

If you love the idea of showing off some skin, but are afraid of showing off too much, this crop top is a great way to get the best of both worlds. Plus, if you decide you want to show off those shoulders and back as the night progresses, you can easily take the crop top on and off as you feel comfortable! This look is definitely all about comfort AND style, so rock it proudly!

4 Perfect Little Black Dresses Under $100 for the Holidays

December is officially here, and that means there are plenty of holiday parties to come, from office parties to New Year’s Eve! Holiday parties are always super fun, especially because it means dresses are so essential to a perfect holiday wardrobe. While we love the idea of rocking sparkly silver, gold, red, green, and blue dresses for the holidays, there’s one look that can’t be forgotten because of its simplicity and dependability for any event you may be attending over the next month: little black dresses! So, to help you find a perfect LBD to take you from party to party, here are four of our favorite looks..all under $100!

Gracia d15016 Little Black Dress

For a classic and super classy look go with jeweled neck party dress Gracia D15016. The cap sleeves and jeweled neckline makes this an easy dress to take you from day to night. If you want to get away from the classic LBD, but still wear a color appropriate for the holidays, this dress also comes in red! This dress is a cool $88.

Baby Doll Little Black Dress d16988

Kendall Jenner’s Mean Girls Parody Takes On The Haters!

If you’ve ever watched the movie Mean Girls, you know just how mean girls can be…and sometimes celebrities can have some nasty thing said about them. Kendall Jenner is one of those celebs where some mean comments have circulated around here, but the model is taking it with a grain of salt and has even recently poked at those comments (and herself)! In a video for Dazed magazine, Kendall reads comments that people have said about her from a Mean Girls style “Burn Book.” She writes down some nasty comments that have been said about her in the Burn Book – watch it to see!

Seventeen Magazine notes that this video coming out has particularly interesting timing, as “high-fashion model Arisce Wanzer just released an open letter to Kendall, slamming her for using her family’s name to become a top model without all the hard work it takes other aspiring models who aren’t reality stars.” It definitely seems like Kendall is responding to Arisce’s letter, and we don’t blame her! From everything we can see, Kendall seems like a hard-working girl whose goal is to be a fashion model, just like many other girl’s dreams. And, why shouldn’t she go for it? Plus, we’re totally impressed that she’s able to laugh off the haters with such style!

What’s your thoughts on Arisce’s letter and Kendall’s video? Leave a comment below and let us know!
