  • 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.

    All eyes have been on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as the most publicized date on the 2018 calendar finally came: the 2018 Royal Wedding! The two love birds finally married on May 19, 2018, a Saturday, which went against tradition, as royal weddings are usually held on a weekday.

  • Bat Mitzvah Dress Testimonial: Jessi Kaplan

    Bar and Bat Mitzvahs are a very special celebration time for a family. It's the celebration of the coming of age for young boys and girls, so are certainly the best of occasions to rock a fun party dress!

    Jessi Kaplan, from South Florida, recently celebrated her Bat Mitzvah, and she did so in style. She rocked two gorgeous looks from RissyRoos.com to celebrate the special day: one for the Bat Mitzvah service and one for the party. Jessi's not the only gal of honor who rocked a Rissy Roo's dress at her Bat Mizvah, though - her mom, Randee, did, too! Check out what Jessie and Randee wore to celebrate the special day, and what Randee had to say about the looks, below.

    "I just wanted to thank you so much again for all of your help with the dresses for Jessi’s Bat Mitzvah! If you get an influx of South Floridians ordering Bat Mitzvah dresses for kids and moms now, you’ll know why! I know a lot of people and everyone has been asking me where I got our dresses! Thanks again for everything!
    xoxo, Randee"

    For Jessi's Bat Mitzvah service, Jessi wore Sherri Hill style 51521 in gold, a lace v-neck a-line dress.

    Sherri Hill 51521

    Sherri Hill 51521 features a sheer lace bodice, with a sweetheart neckline, opaque bra cups, lace tank straps, and an open square back, with a zipper closure. The beautiful short a-line skirt features an opaque underlay and scalloped hem. To top it all off, the entire dress is sprinkled with delicate jewels.

    Sherri Hill 51521

    Sherri Hill 51521 was the perfect choice for a glamorous look that's still conservative enough for a Bat Mitzvah service. Plus, the gold of the Sherri Hill dress perfectly matched Jessi's talit.JVN by Jovani JVN54472

    When it was time to celebrate the special day during Jessi's Bat Mitzvah party, Jessi went full-on glam! She wore JVN by Jovani style JVN54472, a shimmering two-piece party dress.

    JVN by Jovani JVN54472

    Jovani JVN54472 is a colorful show-stopper dress that is covered in dazzling sequins and accented with a floral embroidered pattern on the crop top and on the hip of the skirt. The bodice has two on-trend features: a high neck and an open back. Our favorite part of this dress, though, is another trend - the ombre effect of sequins that gives it such a stand-out look!

    How cute are the pink knee-high socks that Jessi wore for her party? The socks are such a fun (and comfortable) touch!

    Jessi's mom, Randee, was dressed to impress for the Bat Mitzvah party, too. Randee also wore a Jovani dress to the party. She wore Jovani style 58646, but with a twist - she cut the floor-length gown to be a short dress! Check out the dress on our website to see it as a floor-length gown. It's a perfect choice for prom!

    Jovani 58646

    Jovani 58646 blossoms with a floral print, made entirely of sequins, that couldn't be more gorgeous. The halter has a deep plunge neckline and halter straps, and the square back has lace-up corset details and a tie closure.

    Jovani style 58646

    We love that Randee topped off her look with such fun floral high heels - it was the perfect touch to the Jovani dress!

    We're so glad to hear that Jessi and Randee had such a fun time at Jessi's Bat Mizvah and loved their dresses! Congratulations, and we hope you remember this special day for many, many years to come, Jessi!

  • Giuliana Rancic Rocked Sherri Hill at the 2018 Golden Globes

    The 75th Golden Globe Awards was held on Sunday, January 7th in Beverly Hills, California. The vibe was much different than past award ceremonies. The 2018 Golden Globes, which honored film and American television of 2017, did much more than honoring celebrities. It was the first awards ceremony to take place after many Hollywood sexual abuse cases have come into the news as of late, and the awards ceremony made sure to take the time to address the issue.

    Everyone dressed in black in solidarity with people who have been victims of sexual abuse. There was also talk about Time's Up, Hollywood's new initiative to get victims of sexual harassment in low-income jobs legal help. It also has a goal of pushing anti-harassment legislation.

    The most talked-about moment was when Oprah Winfrey took the stage. She was on stage to accept the Cecil B DeMille Award for lifetime achievement. It was a special moment, as she was the first black woman to take home the award. In her acceptance speech, she honored the past, and urged all to be hopeful for the future. If you missed the moving speech, watch it below.

    Oprah's speech was so powerful, and to see all of the celebrity women walk the red carpet in black added to the special meaning behind this year's Golden Globes. This year's ceremony was a show of power, not the usual fashion.

    With that said, we saw one celebrity walking the Golden Globes red carpet in one of our favorite designers. Of course we got excited over it! Giuliana Rancic rocked a Sherri Hill dress! She wore Sherri Hill style 51735, in black a conscious choice to support the #MeToo movement and women empowerment.

    The E! News host always has great style, so it was no surprise to see her rock a Sherri Hill gown. The top of the sparkling gown features a criss-cross neckline and keyhole. The bottom of the gown runs straight from her waist to the carpet. It was a classic silhouette, with just enough glamour for the perfect red carpet presence.

    While this dress looks beautiful in black, and had a very important meaning behind the color for Giuliana, this dress also comes in many other colors. You can choose to rock it at prom in Rose Gold, Gold, Jade, Navy, Purple, Red, Royal, or Black like Giuliana.
