  • 2020 Jovani Prom Dresses

    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

  • 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!

    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!

  • Wear Meghan Markle's Royal Wedding Dress to Your Next Formal Event!

    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. That's no surprise, since there has been many aspects of Prince Harry and Meghan's engagement and marriage that has gone against tradition.

    It was announced on the morning of the wedding that the Queen has conferred a Dukedom on Prince Henry of Wales. His titles will be Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. As a result, Prince Harry is His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, and Meghan has become Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex.

    The marriage took place in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, with Prince Harry and Meghan becoming the sixteenth royal couple to celebrate their marriage at the castle since 1863.

    Of course, the moment we were waiting for was to see Meghan's beautiful wedding dress! She looked like a true princess, and Duchess, in her totally classic and classy white wedding dress, especially with a prince by her side! We're pretty sure this means Disney is real...  Continue reading

  • 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 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 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.
