October is here, and one of our favorite holidays to dress up is right around the corner, Halloween! Halloween is a time to dress up however, and as whatever, you want - from a princess to a devil. And, one of our favorite ways to dress up for the spooky holiday is with little black dresses! LBDs are super versatile, so, just like with any other event, you can dress up or down the look any way you like. Grab a LBD for Halloween, and turn it into a super classic and classy look, like a witch, vampire, or black cat with simple accessories. Check out some of our favorite little black dresses for Halloween below, and why we think they're perfect for a Halloween look.
Little Black Lace Dress
Ninety's fashion has made a huge comeback this year, seeing celebs like Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid rocking those ever famous 90s style chokers and goth inspired looks. We certainly can't complain, especially since the 1990s seem to be making a comeback in a huge way well beyond fashion. Just yesterday, sequels to 1990s popular movies The Blair Witch Project and Trainspotting were announced, and one of our all-time favorite actresses who we've been waiting patiently to take over the spotlight once again has done just that: Winona Ryder! The popular 1990s actress who was famous for Tim Burton movies like Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice, as well as Girl, Interrupted, is finally back in the limelight in a big way in Netflix's newest sci-fi series Stranger Things.
With the comeback of both Winona and 90s fashion, we wanted to give a fashion flashback to some of the formal outfits that made Winona that 1990s fashion icon she's become known for. After all, as Vice noted in their article "The Timeless Appeal of Winona Ryder, Hollywood's Eternal Outsider," Winona was "the cult face of the 90s." See four of our favorite outfits below, and of course how you can take a cue from them for a perfect fall Homecoming look.
Winona at the NATO/ShoWest Convention, 1990
Winona wore that classic goth look in a totally elegant way, wearing a black v-neck dress, a worn-in leather jacket, black hair, and dark red lips. Of course, you can never go wrong with Johnny Depp on your shoulder! In this picture, Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp were at the NATO/ShowWest Convention in Las Vegas, NV in February of 1990.

Thanksgiving is almost here! As of today, you're 10 days away from delicious Thanksgiving food. Which, of course, also means that it's time to put together that perfect outfit for your Thanksgiving dinner party. Whether attending your own family dinner, your significant other's dinner, or a friend's, you'll want to be dressed for the occasion.
Most Thanksgiving dinners are pretty casual, but some can be more dressy, so make sure to find out the dress code ahead of time. If you'd like to go with a nice pair of jeans or pants and sweater, last week we showed you our 5 favorite sweaters for holiday parties (or gift giving!). Rocking a dress is always a go-to option, as well, though, so today we're showing our our 5 favorite dresses for a thanksgiving dinner (which are of course also perfect for any other holiday party you may have coming up). These dresses are all conservative enough for a family dinner, while still being so on-trend. Check them out below!
Lace Fit And Flare Dress
Black lace is always a staple for the holidays, and we love it in this Long Sleeve Lace Mini Dress. This lace dress features a sexy illusion back, long sleeves, and a v-neck with a keyhole. The long sleeves makes this dress so perfect for the colder fall and winter months. This dress also comes in the color Ivory if you'd like to rock the Winter White trend.
Crochet Fit and Flare Dress
This Beautiful Crochet Mini Dress is similar to the first lace mini dress, but with a crochet look instead of lace. The sexy, yet classy style features a crochet bodice, a-line waist and long illusion sleeves. This dress also comes in red if you're looking for a more bold color.
Winter White Dress
You can also rock long sleeves in a white dress with Shail K. 3665, a 3/4 sleeve mini that's truly a piece of art. The fun beaded design sets this dress apart giving it a stylish, lively, one of a kind look that's so easy to dress up for a more formal part or down for a more casual dinner.
Red Lace Cocktail Dress
Red, green, and blue are always staple color choices for the holidays if you want a brighter look. We especially love Alyce 4416 because it's a classic cocktail dress look that will never go out of style. From its v-cut neckline, open back, and rhinestones sprinkled upon the sheer lace sheath over linking, this dress is sure to be a crowd pleaser no matter what the event. You can easily add a cardigan over this dress for a Thanksgiving dinner, and drop the cardigan for some night time fun. This dress also comes in colors Black/Nude, Blue Coral/Nude, Burgundy/Nude, and Deep Plum/Nude, all perfect colors for any holiday event.
While the first two dresses we mentioned are great black dress choices, if you want a more classic form fitting LBD, go with Sherri Hill 32006, a short jersey and lace dress. This totally versatile dress features cap sleeves, lace bodice, a v-neckline, and a stretch fitted jersey body. This is definitely a dress that you can easily wear time and time again, from Fall and Winter right into Spring and Summer.
Whatever you end up wearing for your Thanksgiving dinner, have a wonderful time hanging out with your family and friends!
With only one day down, and only today and tomorrow to go for our Shoes and Accessories Sale, we thought we'd have a little mix and match fun! We picked out one of our favorite summer to fall transitional dresses, La Femme style 22061, and paired it with shoes and accessories that complete the look for perfection.
La Femme 22061, one of La Femme's new Fall 2015 dresses, is such a classic look, with just the right amount of edge, that you can wear it to so many different events, from Homecoming to to a night out with your besties. So, with all of our shoes and accessories at 20% off through the end of Friday, August 21st, we thought this was a great time to show you how you can pair the little black dress with the perfect extras for a completed head-to-toe look.
Since La Femme 22061 is an LBD, this is one dress that's easy to pair with just about any shoes, jewelry, and purse; the most important thing is to make sure the accessories match each other (more than the dress). But, since style 22061 has that classic black lace look to it with the two two-piece trend adding just the right amount of glam, we love to keep the accessories in that range, as well. Check out our favorite accessories to pair below!
Clutch: La Regale RL22003 Stone Clutch - This glam all over stone clutch has an optional 22" drop-in chain strap and a magnetic snap closure. We love the classic black and gold colors of the clutch, with just a hint of glam added with the black stone features.
Bracelet: Pearl Bow Bracelet - A perfectly jeweled bow bangle bracelet with elegant pearl accents. It doesn't get much more classic, classy, and so chic than this bracelet!
High Heels: Jupiter by Touch Ups Sexy Jeweled Shoes - A stunning single soled sandal covered in wonderful black stones and features a sophisticated lamy material. Two buckles secure a thick ankle strap that provides a fashion-forward silhouette. The black stones on this heel match the black stones on the La Regale RL22003 clutch perfectly!
We hope you not only love our Dress of the Week pick, but all of the accessories, too! Remember, to get 20% off all of our shoes and accessories through tomorrow, just use promo code MUSTHAVE at check-out.
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!
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!
Here at RissyRoo's, life is all about dressing up. After all, life is one large collection of little celebrations all rolled into one! Even though we are always dressing up for something special like homecoming, prom, graduation, weddings and all types of events, sometimes us Roo Girls like to tone it down and dress a little bit more on the casual side! Trust us, we live for sparkle and glam, but we also love to slip into something trendy and casual, especially during the hot summer days and nights! That is why we have the perfect casual dresses for summer! We recently picked some fabulous new designs to add to our already superior Continue reading

With Halloween only a week away, our newsletter this week was all about dressing up for the day of fright, fun, and lots and lots of candy! If you didn't get our newsletter, or just didn't get a chance to read it, we wanted to make sure write a post about it, as well, as we know how difficult it can be to put a perfect Halloween outfit together.
If you're stuck on what to wear, finding a sexy little black dress is always a choice you can count on. Two LBDs that we especially love for Halloween are Sticks & Stones by Mori Lee style 9200 and Dave & Johnny 8580.
Mori Lee 9200 is a strapless sweetheart cocktail dress with all over lace details. It's a sexy look that also comes in a Black/Nude color that can be paired with so may different accessories to make a limitless amount of different Halloween looks.
Dave & Johnny 8580 is a dress that we posted a few days ago in our Get Bewitched and Vamped Up for Halloween blog post. It's a dress that's a perfect combination of cute and sexy with the sheer, lace, sparkle, and tulle details.
Pair your favorite LBD with stand-out heels like Touch Ups Blake Platform Boot Pump or Baylee by Sizzle Black Beaded Pumps to finish off the dark, sophisticated look. Then, just pick out the accessories of the Halloween character you'd like to be, such as a witch's hat, a masquerade mask, cat ears, or a floral headband and Dia de Los Muertos face paint, to get that FANGtastic Halloween style!
