This Little Mermaid Wedding Will Warm Your Disney-Loving Heart

Just about every little girl (and woman!) dreams of a Disney princess inspired wedding. From the wedding dress, to the cake, to the bridesmaid dresses, to the location…it’s definitely a hard dream to pull off in real life! Well, online wedding marketplace Your Cloud Parade recently teamed up with singer and designer Traci Hines to bring one Disney princess childhood dream to life with a wedding photo shoot inspired by the Disney movie The Little Mermaid! Traci played the role of mermaid bride Ariel, while model Leo Camacho played the groom, Prince Eric!

Check out some of the photos from the fake wedding shoot below. Plus… if you are totally obsessing over Traci’s Little Mermaid formal look, don’t fret – we have two gowns you can rock that are perfect to wear for Prom or your own The Little Mermaid themed wedding!

This couldn’t be a more perfect scene for a mermaid princess!

Want to see more photos from this gorgeous (faux) wedding? Check out The Huffington Post’s article. You can see everything from the cake, to a close-up of the bridesmaid outfits, to the finger foods. It’s all too cute!

Get The Little Mermaid Look

Ready to see how you can get this look for your own formal event? Check out our two favorite ombre dresses below to rock Ariel’s look!

La Femme 19549

La Femme style 19549 has the opposite ombre pattern of Ariel’s (aqua to white, rather than white to aqua), but the dress reminds us so much of the ocean and mermaids that it’s one of our favorites to steal Ariel’s look. This chiffon gown has a criss cross ruched bodice that reminds us of Ariel’s bikini top from the movie. The sides and back are detailed with gorgeous stone covered mesh and lace for just the right amount of glam for a mermaid. This look is great for a Little Mermaid look for Homecoming or Prom.

Dave and Johnny 10064

For a white top to aqua bottom ombre look just like Ariel’s, go with Dave and Johnny style 10064. It’s a long chiffon ombre gown with beaded straps and a sweetheart beaded neckline. This look is perfect for a sea inspired dress, while still rocking the traditional white for a wedding.

Are you loving these The Little Mermaid wedding pictures as much as we are? Remember, this is all a faux wedding, so don’t get too jealous! Plus… it’s so easy to get the looks yourself, so don’t be afraid to go for it for your next formal event.

Halloween Manicure Monday: Get a Gothic Witch or Vamp Look!

With today officially the Manicure Monday before Halloween is here, of course today’s post is a new way that you can get a chic Halloween look with a little black dress and Halloween inspired nails!

The past couple of weeks we showed you how to get a vampire and witch look and a black cat look. Today, we’re going back to the classic vampire and witch looks, but with one of our Scary Savings Sale dresses: Mori Lee 9185!

Mori Lee 9185

Mori Lee 9185 is a lace over sequins cocktail dress with long lace sleeves and a keyhole zipper open back. The black and fuchsia colors, paired with the sexy all over lace, makes it so perfect to wear on Halloween for a chic gothic witch or vamp look. We especially love this dress to be a sexy witch or vampire – all you need to do to finish off the look is add some gothic inspired makeup and dark colored nails, like in the above pic stitch. The pointed, studded nails on the above manicure complete any witch or vampire look in such a chic way! All you’ll need from here is a witch’s hat and a broomstick to complete the witch look, or vampire teeth and some blood to complete the vampire look! It definitely reminds us of a dress that Elena Gilbert would wear in The Vampire Diaries!

Best yet, this dress is on sale for our Scary Savings Sale through 10/31! It used to be $294.00, but is now only $55.60. Plus, you can take an extra 20% off through this Friday, October 31st, with code SCARY! It doesn’t get much more perfect than this for putting together a unique Halloween look, rather than buying a ready-made costume from a Halloween store. We have plenty of other little black dresses and even little red dresses (for a devil look!) as part of our Scary Savings Sale, too, so have fun shopping!

DIY Black Cat Makeup Tutorial for Halloween!

Remember on Monday how we posted about a chic black cat Halloween look, matching chick nail art, a little black dress, cat ears, cat eye makeup, and cat eye glasses all together? Well, we have more information to help you finish off that black cat look! Seventeen Magazine recently posted a step-by-step video on how to create that perfect black cat makeup look…from the classic cat eyes to a cute black nose and even whiskers! Check out the black cat makeup tutorial here:

Such a cute look! Lupe, known as naturallybellexo on YouTube (who works with Seventeen), decided to create her black cat look with a black romper, rather than a little black dress, like we mentioned earlier this week. Both styles work so well for a black cat look, and both are so easy to take from Halloween to any other night out or event you go to.

If you want to rock a romper like Lupe, we love Shail K style 3464. This hand beaded, sparkling one piece will make you look so sexy, and the silver accenting throughout the romper reminds us of stripes on a cat! We especially love the sparkles on this romper – they’re a perfect way to stand out in the crowd on nights like Halloween, a Holiday party, or New Year’s Eve. The romper also features a sweetheart neckline, defined waist, and unique open back design. If it’s a cold night out (like Halloween or the Holidays usually are), don’t be afraid to pair this look with black tights – rompers look great with tights and is perfectly on-trend.

Shail K 3464

A black cat is a classic (and SO Roo Girl!) choice for Halloween, so you definitely can’t go wrong with this look. And, you can always find unique ways to add your own personal style to the look by adding jewelry…. and choosing between a romper vs. a LBD, of course! Are you planning on being a black cat? Do you have any tips, tricks, or ideas on how to finish off the look? Leave a comment below!

Bella Thorne’s and Tristan Klier’s Homecoming Night!

Our hearts were broken when we heard that Bella Thorne and Tristan Klier broke up, after 3 years of dating. But, Bella recently agreed to still go to Homecoming with Tristan, so we’re holding on that there still may be hope for their relationship! The two recently posted such cute pictures from their Homecoming dance from last weekend…they certainly look like they had an incredible time, and makes us think that they really are giving their relationship another shot!

Seventeen Magazine explained that they started out the night at Tristan’s house, “and took the obligatory all-the-couples-in-the-living-room homecoming pic and Bella looked gorgeous!” We couldn’t agree more! Check out the pics:

“HOMECOMING” – Bella Thorne

Seventeen Magazine then explained: “Then Tristan and Bella took a picture in front of their limo with Tristan’s twin brother (who’s equally as gorgeous as Tristan) and his date!”

“Looking dapper last night with our ladies” -Tristan

Everyone definitely looks very “dapper!” Love Bella’s super fitted bandage dress? Get a look just like hers with Mac Duggal style 40308! Just like Bella’s dress, this avant-guard dress forms to your figure and accentuates your curves with a deep v-cut neckline.

Mac Duggal 40308

Or, get that pretty in pink look like Bella’s in a bandage dress with Sherri Hill style 32048. This is a short and sexy bandage dress with a sheer beaded lace halter neckline and a beaded lace back with a key hole slit.

Sherri Hill 32048

The best thing about these dresses is that they are timeless, and will always give you a stunning form fitting look. So, you can easily take either of these dresses from Homecoming to your next semi-formal or formal occasion. Just like Bela’s dress, Tristan’s twin brother’s date wore just as classic and timeless of a dress: a little black dress! For a so simple and classic look like above go with La Femme style 19842. This is an amazing fit and flare dress with a sweetheart neckline and low v back. The dress has black lace over the nude and a sheer net high neckline. The dress has pockets on both sides of the skirt and the back is completely covered in sheer net.

A Chic Halloween Black Cat Look You’ll Love!

Halloween is less than two weeks away, and with today being the 2nd to last Manicure Monday before Halloween is here, we have more Halloween inspired looks for you! Last week, we showed you an easy way to get a vampire or witch look with a little black dress, and today we have more LBD Halloween ideas for you! Read on to get a totally cute Halloween black cat look!

Sherri Hill 21156 Black Cat Halloween Look

This so chic black cat look matches Sherri Hill style 21156 in black with Baylee by Sizzle pumps in black. Sherri Hill style 21156 is a one-of-a-kind dress that features a strapless design, sweetheart neckline, and low back style. The fitted bodice is embellished with elegantly designed with beads and sequin embellishments. Baylee by Sizzle is a beaded platform pump with all over jewels and sparkle. All that’s needed to finish the black cat look are cute cat ears, cat eye glasses (and cat eye makeup!), and a cat inspired manicure.

This entire look was inspired by the cute manicure idea we saw above, created by lifeisbetterpolished. We’ve been getting in the Halloween mood here at Rissy Roo’s by trying out cute Halloween inspired looks for Manicure Monday today, and we thought this one was just so chic! Purple is a great color to rock to show your Halloween spirit if you don’t like the traditional orange and black colors. And, of course, you can never go wrong with a little bit (or a lot) of sparkle!

Of course, there might be another Halloween look you think of when it comes to Sherri Hill style 21156… a vampire! Last year, we created a DIY Vampire Makeup Tutorial and used this dress to finish off the look. Either way, you’ll look super chic for Halloween, and it’s one of our favorite dresses to rock for Homecoming and Prom, too!

More Sneak Peeks of the New Taylor Swift 1989 Album!

Back in August, Lorde gave us a little sneak peek at the Taylor Swift 1989 album that’s set to be released later this month, and now Taylor Swift is finally giving some sneak peeks of her upcoming album! If you follow Taylor on Instagram, you know that she’s been posting pictures of lyrics from some of her new songs, but there’s two recent sneak peeks that we’re obsessing over. Check them out below!

The first sneak peek is the full audio for her latest single, “Out Of The Woods!” As promised, the single has that distinct 80s sound, channeling some pop-synth. And the lyrics? They’re all about a past relationship that Seventeen Magazine thinks may be about a famous ex of hers…Harry Styles! Seventeen mentions:

“The lyrics mentiondating the boy ‘last December’ (Haylor dated in December of 2012) and wearing his necklace around her neck. Then there’s the infamous snowmobile accident and that’s confirmation enough for us!”

Check out the song here:

The second sneak peek that we’re loving is a preview of a new 1989 track surrounded by…KITTENS! In her newest Diet Coke commercial, Tay is surrounded by dozens of kittens, including her own kitty Olivia Benson. And, what’s that super cool song playing in the background? The third song off of her new album, of course! Just like “Shake It Off” and “Out Of The Woods,” this song sounds so upbeat and fun, too! Only 10 more days until we get to hear the entire song!

Check out the Coke commercial and the preview of her new song here:

We can totally tell how epic this new album is going to be already, and can’t wait to hear the whole thing in just a few days. Are you excited for 1989? Leave a comment and let us know!

Little Black Dress Halloween Costumes for a Witchin’ Good Look!

Halloween is so close, and we’re getting excited to dress up as our favorite characters on the 31st! It’s always difficult to choose and put together your costume, but there’s one great way to look super chic for Halloween: little black dresses!

Rock an LBD for a Fangtastic Halloween Style!


Little black dresses are so versatile, and always chic, so we love the idea of pairing an LBD with your favorite Halloween accessories for a glamorously ghoulish look. Two dresses that we particularly love are shown above: Night Moves style 6658 and Jeweled Pencil Dress style 78415.

Fangtastic Vampire Style

We love Night Moves 6685 to rock a sexy glam rock vampire look. Sexy and sophisticated, this dress features a sheer illusion sleeve detail accented with crystals. The long sleeves makes it perfect for a cold fall Halloween night, and allows it to easily transition into winter for a Holiday Party dress (we especially love this look for New Year’s Eve)! For Halloween, just pair it with vampire teeth, dark red lipstick, dark red or purple eyes, and glamorous red jewelry. We also love the idea of pairing it with a leather jacket to complete that glam rock look.

In the above outfit, we paired the LBD with Helen’s Heart style JE-4601-10 red earrings, Rihanna by Night Moves platform high heels, and Magid E7496 beads and rhinestones satin box clutch. All items that you can easily rock again for Homecoming, Prom, or the Holidays!

Witchin LBD Look

Jeweled Pencil Dress style 78415 is perfect to rock a witch look for Halloween! This jeweled neck dress features body defining style lines, open sides, and an invisible back zipper. For Halloween, pair it with a chic witch hat, a witch’s broom, and funky jewelry. for an extra witchy look, pair it with striped stockings – we love either orange and black or purple and black striped stockings for that classic witch look.

To finish off this look, we paired the dress with Magid E7486 jeweled box clutch, Hyacinth Crystal Chandelier Earrings JF103E32G3, and Baylee by Sizzle sexy beaded pumps.

Of course, a little black dress is so easy to dress up in any way, so whether a classic Halloween look like a vampire or a witch that we showed above…or something a little less scary like a 1920s flapper girl or cute black cat…you’ll be able to rock a totally haute Halloween look, and then take that dress right into the Holidays and New Year!
