  • 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.

  • Homecoming Dress Testimonial: Kiersten Kiddy

    The Homecoming 2016 Season is here, and some of our Roo Girls have already attended their dances, and shared their pictures with us. The latest homecoming photos were shared by Kiersten Kiddy's mom, Toni-Wes Kiddy. While most people think of high school or college when it comes to attending homecoming, Kiersten was actually attending her middle school homecoming. So, get ready for a cuteness overload with her pictures.

    Kiersten was all set to attend her middle school homecoming back in August. All she needed was a dress. Kiersten's mom, Toni, called up Rissy Roo's, loving a Lexi by Mon Cheri dress that Kiersten needed in a Size 12. While we didn't have the dress in a Size 12, we did have it in a Size 16, and assured Toni that it can be altered to fit Kiersten. Kiersten and Toni purchased the dress, had it altered, and the rest is history. Needless to say, Kiersten looked beautiful in it for her football homecoming! Check out the photos Kiersten's mom sent below, as well as her homecoming testimonial.

    Lexi by Mon Cheri

    Before it was time for Kiersten to attend her junior high homecoming, Toni initially sent us pictures of Kiersten trying on the dress. Toni said:

    "We talked on the phone on August 31st & whoever I talked to was so helpful & nice (I was very worried about such a big alteration). It was a Sz 16 & has been altered down to about a Sz 12. We absolutely love it. But can't wait to see my daughter in it with her hair & makeup. Thank you again..."

    After Kiersten attended her football homecoming, Toni followed-up with pictures of Kiersten on the homecoming field all dressed up. Toni said:

    "Here are much better pics of Kiersten in her beautiful dress! Remember it was a Sz 16 taken in to about a Sz 10/12... This was for Selmer Middle School Football Homecoming. And thank you so much!!"

    How cute does Kiersten look with her homecoming date? We're just a little obsessed! With Kiersten's obvious fashion sense, we can't believe she's only in middle school. We can't wait to see what she'll be rocking for homecoming and prom in the many years to come in high school!

  • Kate McKinnon Takes Home Her First Award At The 2016 Emmys

    Comedian Kate McKinnon has been taking the media by storm, through her Ellen DeGeneres and Hilary Clinton impressions on Saturday Night Live to her incredible performance in the Ghostbusters re-boot this year. Through all of her hard work and ability to bring joy and laughter to millions of people, she finally took home her first Emmy award at this year's 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony! She won the 2016 Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Emmy Award.

    While everyone is so happy for her win, people can't stop talking about her acceptance speech. She was so surprised that she blurted out, "I'm shaking!" while giving her speech, and even said that she was crying. She gave the normal "thank you's" to family and those who have helped her within the industry. She gave a shout-out to her now deceased father, explaining that he made her start watching SNL when she was 12. She also managed to fit in thanking the two celebrities that helped bring her to fame: Ellen DeGeneres and Hillary Clinton.

    The best part? Hillary Clinton responded on Twitter that she's big fans of Kate, and offered her congratulations! She even posted a meme of Kate doing an impression of Mrs. Clinton. Check out the tweet from the presidential nominee below.  Continue reading
