Homecoming 2014

  • Special Debut: Our Homecoming 2014 TV Ad!

    Did you catch the Mid Season Finale of Pretty Little Liars Season 5 last week? It was such an intense ending to such a great TV series, and we can't believe we are now on hiatus until December to follow the Pretty Little Liars girls further down the rabbit hole! But, the mid season finale wasn't the only reason we were excited to watch Episode 12, "Taking This One To the Grave" of PLL at Rissy Roo's. It was also the debut of our Homecoming 2014 ad, which debuted for our local Roo Girls in the Atlantic, Cape May, and Gloucester Counties in New Jersey and included a special promo.

    Now that Labor Day has passed, and it's officially Homecoming 2014 season, we want to share the TV ad with you, in case you are a local Roo Girl that missed the finale, or one of our national...or international Roo Girls! While the ad will be running for our local Roo Girls on ABC Family and MTV through the week before Thanksgiving, you can not watch the ad right here! Check it out:

Just like the ad says, whether you want classic or casual, long or short, we are happy to help you find your perfect casual, semi-formal, or formal dress from our large selection of top dress designers, including Sherri Hill, Blush, La Femme, and many more. We have even added a new dress designer this year: Rachel Allan! So, feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have.

    This week, we wanted to focus in on one of our favorite new trends that has taken hold over the past year: the 2 piece dress look.

  • College Dorm Room Must Haves!

    For those girls getting ready to take the giant leap off to college in the Fall, you have a million things running through your minds. From picking out your classes and trying to get to know your new roommate, to shopping and attempting to pack the 18 years worth of stuff you have accumulated in a few boxes, your head is spinning. Now is the time to put everything aside and really make sure you have the most important, absolutely cannot live without, items to take with you in order to help make your dorm room a livable space. It is better to be prepared so you can arrive in your new environment as stress free as possible! We did some searching and thought these were the top college dorm room must haves for any new girl on campus!

    1. Extra Long Sheets and Bed Raisers

    There is nothing worse than seeing the bed you will be sleeping in for the next year and realizing the sheets you bought were for a regular twin size bed. Be sure to get extra long (soft) sheets and probably a mattress pad if you want to sleep well. Bed raisers are a space and life saver when it comes to dorm rooms. Some raisers now come with other functionality like power and USB outlets included in one of the raisers! Brilliant!

    2. Flip Flops and Caddy for the Shower

    Yes, sharing a bathroom with several people can be a horrifying thought at first, especially if you were privileged enough to never have to. However, you can avoid feeling any discomfort by buying a pair of non-slip flip-flops to shower in, and a cute shower caddy to conveniently carry all of your rub-a-dub goodies so nothing gets lost or goes MIA. Don't make the mistake of leaving your expensive products in the communal bathroom!

    3. Over the Door Vanity with Mirror and Extra Hooks

    We promise, this is one dorm room essential you may not have thought of, but will save you so much hassle! You will have a place to do your makeup, organize beauty supplies, hang jewelry, scarves, keys, or whatever you would like! The over-the-door feature will keep everything securely in place, while saving space and allowing your desk to be clutter free and used for what it's supposed to...studying!

    4. Mini Fridge and Personal Utensils

    Having a miniature fridge and eating utensils in your dorm room is a necessity! Even though you may be eating at the dining hall when you can, it is important to keep healthy snacks on hand at all times. Having a fridge will save you money because you can go to the local market and buy bottled water, fruit, yogurt, or any of your favorites and keep them in your room instead of running to a vending machine or local pizza place whenever you get hungry. The dining hall may not be open all the time so keep this dorm room must have on your list, especially if you play sports or stick to a particular diet.

    5. Organizational Dry Erase Board

    With so much going on in your new college lifestyle, it can be hard to keep track of exams, papers, socials, and everyday stuff. This is why we suggest getting some type of organizational board to hang on your dorm room wall to keep track of your busy schedule. Something with a dry erase board is perfect because you can easily keep track of daily tasks like tests or meetings, as well as weekly things like parties, laundry, shopping lists etc. Having one of these is having your schedule mapped out right in front of you, so no task will be missed.

    Now that you have the essentials for your dorm room, you can focus on the fun part of Fall, like shopping for your first homecoming dress for your new school! With so many parties and socials ahead, you will be busier then you can ever imagine, but you will be happy you have these dorm room essentials in your arsenal to keep you organized and stress free!

    Playful Two Pieces

    Homecoming dresses are an entirely different look when comparing them to prom. They are generally a little less formal, although some schools make it a very fancy occasion. Typically, homecoming is a gathering of students uniting as one, celebrating the beginning of a new school year and showing their school spirit in hopes of leading their team to victory. Prom is more of a coming of age pastime and memorable occasion. Of course, no homecoming game is complete without a celebratory after-party! Sherri Hill's fall line is full of two-piece dresses that are fun, yet elegant enough to be worn as formal attire. Adorned with beautiful lace and various beads, these two pieces are an on going fashion hit!
