  • Rissy Roo's 8th Grade Dance Dress Testimonial: Aliyah White

    We've shown you so may of our gorgeous Roo Girls in their prom dresses, and now it's time to see one of our younger Roo Girls in her 8th grade dance dress! Ronnise White recently sent us beautiful photos of her daughter, Aliyah White, in the dress she chose for her formal 8th grade class night, and she looks so sweet!

    When Ronnise sent us the photos, she said:

    "We loved the dress!!!! Will definitely be back for our next occasion."

    Hannah S 27068

    The dress Aliyah wore is Hannah S style 27068, a super chic formal cocktail dress. This romantic design has a box-pleated A-line lace print skirt with side pockets (yas!), jewel-covered illusion choker and deep sweetheart neckline, a beaded waistband, and an open back. It's a dress that's meant for those warm spring and summer months, and we loved that Aliyah's date rocked the same colors in his suit. The pair looked perfect together!

    Not only did we love Aliyah's (and her date's) look, but we loved how Aliyah accessorized her dress. Her sparkly heels, jeweled bracelet, and purple corsage were the perfect accents to her 8th grade dance dress.

    We hope you had a wonderful time at your dance, Aliyah, and we can't wait to help you find dresses for your high school dances in the future!

  • Fitness Friday: Easy "No Workout" Workouts for Any Time!

    Summer may be over, but that doesn't mean it's time to drop all the exercises you've been doing to stay in tip-top summer shape. We know that it can be hard to find the motivation when there's no bikinis to be wearing, so here's some simple workouts you can do that are so easy they can barely even be considered workouts! These workout ideas come from Seventeen Magazine - they're our favorites from their 10 Easy "No Workout" Workouts list. So, if you like the ideas below and want more, just head over to their site. And, of course, if you need a little motivation to get started, just remember that it's #FitnessFriday.

    Tooth Brush Wall Sits

    Rather than simply standing over the sink while you’re brushing your teeth, stand against the wall with your legs extended. They should be about two feet from the wall. Then, slowly bend your knees to slide down the wall until you reach a seated position. Make sure that your back is flat against the wall and your knees are positioned behind your toes.

    Seventeen recommends starting out holding the squat position for 30 seconds, and work your way up to a minute. Then, stand up, take a quick break, and repeat until you're done brushing your teeth (which, should be 2-3 minutes in total). This is something you can do every time you brush your teeth - an easy and efficient way to work on toning your legs and butt!

    Ride Your Bike Everywhere!

    Forget your car or the school bus. If your destination is within biking distance, sneak in a workout by hopping on your bike! Biking is a great way to get an all body workout, from your legs to your arms. And, not only will you get a little endorphin high, but it's good for the environment...and saving money on gas, of course!

    Seventeen recommends biking at least 3 times a week. If you're new to cycling, just make sure to take it slow in the beginning until you build up your endurance.

    Dance, Dance, Dance!

    When you're out at parties with friends, put your body to work by dancing! Get your friends off their butts and onto the dance floor and you'll all be having the most fun cardio workout around. The best part about this "no workout" workout is getting to also rock your favorite dress!

    Seventeen Magazine says to try to keep yourself moving for an hour at a time, ideally twice a week. You can always dance in front of your mirror, too, if you're not out at parties twice a week. And, with your Homecoming Dance coming up, one night is already in the bag!

    These are all great workouts to make sure you don't lose all that summer work you've done, especially since Homecoming Season is here. Do you have any easy workouts that you do? Leave us a comment below and share them with us!
