    Jovani Prom 2020 Jovani Prom 2020

    Each year, there are a few prom dress lines that we get particularly excited about. 2020 is no different, as perennial fashion powerhouse Jovani has delivered yet another outstanding fashion line. While it may seem like prom season is in the distant future, our Roo Girls know that now is the time to begin your quest for the perfect dress. The hottest styles sell out quickly and, while you may not have yet secured a date for the special event, locking down the perfect prom dress should be priority number one. After all, prom will be one of the most memorable moments of your teenage years. With that idea in mind, Rissy Roo's would like to share with you some of our favorite styles and trends from this year's Jovani prom dress line.

    Ball Gowns: Classic and Timeless

    We might as well start where it all began. For many years, traditional ball gowns were not just a choice for prom girls, but the only choice. In 2020, while many more style options will be available, many potential prom queens will still opt for the timeless princess look to fulfill their fairytale evening. Layers upon layers of tulle will typically permeate the wide full skirts of these enchanting ball gowns. While this may be a classic look, many of these gowns have been given some modern touches, such as pockets for gum, lipstick, or other essentials, should you choose not to carry a clutch.

    One style we are particularly infatuated with this year is Jovani 55634. This spectacular ball gown features a deep plunging v-neckline. Stunning floral appliques flow effortlessly through the garment from the shoulders, through the bodice, and trail off throughout the full tulle skirt. In addition to the navy/black combo we've featured (pictured right), this style comes in a myriad of other spectacular combos and colors including off white/light blue, off white/lilac, off white/yellow, champagne, off white/blush, off white/off white, red, and teal.

    Pastels are once again en vogue and, if you're really going all out for the prom princess look, there's no better way to go. One such style we've fallen in love with for this coming season is Jovani 1310. This jaw-dropping ball gown is available in a charming off white/lilac combo that is sure to be a showstopper at this year's prom. Thin spaghetti straps lead to a v-neck bodice featuring alluring illusion cutouts and a mesmerizing pattern that continues in an asymmetrical manner through the full tulle skirt. Continue reading

Booby Tape could be the ideal solution for you when you simply cannot wear a bra, but need something to hold up your boobs.

For bigger boobs, Booby Tape will lift your chest up and allow you to wear dresses and sexy outfits that you would never try before. The special acrylic adhesive is strong enough to hold up the heaviest of breasts. For smaller chests, Booby Tape can be positioned to lift and squeeze your boobs together to get the cleavage you desire.

    Celebs Use Tape

    For years we have been hearing about how celebs such as Cardi B., Kim Kardashian, and Chrissy Teigen tape their breasts up for red carpet events. We've even heard of using masking tape or duct tape. Can you say OUCH? While Kim Kardashian swears by Gaffer Tape and Cardi B. uses Duct Tape, we were not convinced these were the best options out there.

    Safe to Use

    So we went in search of a product that can safely tape up your boobs. Booby Tape is made of cotton and nylon and the adhesive is acrylic. While it is always recommended to try a test patch, we have found this product to be a safe choice. It was important to find a boob tape that would not rip your skin or dare we say nipple off. In comes boobytape Nipple Covers to save the day. The combination of boobytape Nipple Covers and boobytape Booby Tape is basically a breast lift in a box. The manufacturer recommends the use of Nipple Covers with the Booby Tape, especially for sensitive nipples, but they are sold separately. Each roll of Booby Tape is 5m and on average can be used 5 to 15 times depending on the size of your breasts. There are 5 sets of nipple covers in each pack.

  • Nikki Novak in Sherri Hill at the 2019 Golden Globes

    Awards Season always has us dreaming of the Prom Season ahead. This year's Golden Globes especially had us thinking prom because of one particular actress' perfect red carpet look. If you can't guess, or didn't get to watch the 2019 Golden Globes, the actress we're talking about is Nikki Novak! The actress stunned us on the red carpet by wearing one of our favorite designers: Sherri Hill!

    A post shared by Sherri Hill (@sherrihill) on


    This is an extra special Sherri Hill dress, too, because it's one that you can wear to prom. She is wearing Sherri Hill style 52448, a brand new dress that's available for Prom 2019! The gown features delicate floral details that we're obsessing over. Nikki wore the Light Blue color, but this gown also comes in Coral, Light Green, and Yellow - all colors that remind us of the warmer spring months to come.

    Since Sherri Hill 52448 is such a unique, stand-out look, we recommend keeping the accessories minimal, just like Nikki did on the Golden Globes red carpet. It can certainly be fun to wear a pair of stand-out heels, though, like Nikki's sparkly heels, since the overskirt is see-through! Grab a pair of heels similar to Nikki's with Jupiter by Touch Ups.

    If you haven't heard the name Nikki Novak before, Nikki is known for movies The Holiday, The Bucket List, and Any Given Sunday. She is also a Fandango correspondent and film correspondent for The Today Show, Access, E! News, and Extra. Keep a look-out for her on more red carpets - you never know when you might catch her in another Sherri Hill dress!

  • What Is Homecoming?

    Homecoming is an annual tradition that involves the celebration of welcoming back former students or graduates otherwise known as alumni of an educational institution. There are usually many activities that are prepared such as sports and cultural programs, as opposed to only one. A parade is also often included and the town or city is witness to it as this activity is held in the streets. If by any chance you should be confused between a Homecoming and a prom, just remember that the former is held during the fall while the latter happens in spring. While Homecoming’s occur countrywide, those in the south are typically the more lavish and over the top Homecoming’s, as it is generally revered as a more significant event than it is in the Northern States.
