    Homecoming 2017 Trend Lace Dresses

    The most in-demand Homecoming 2017 styles starts with a trend that's been a staple over a few years now, for both Homecoming and Prom. That trend is lace! A dress embellished with lace details makes for such a timeless romantic look, and can easily be dressed up or down.

  • Rissy Roo's at the JCC of Atlantic County Sip & Shop in Margate NJ

    All of our local Roo Girls know we love to be a part of our southern New Jersey community. The latest in community fun came last week, on Wednesday, July 12th, when Rissy Roo's attended as the Fashion Sponsor at the JCC of Atlantic County's Sip & Shop Ladies' Night Out Shopping & Wine Tasting Event.

    The special one-night Sip & Shop event was for a great cause, to help JCC facilitate sensory play in their early childhood education classrooms. All proceeds from the 2017 Sip & Shop Ladies Night Out went to support the effort to enhance the sensory centers in each of JCC's preschool classrooms. The purpose of the sensory centers is for children to learn important skills, including math, science, physical development, and social and emotional skills.

    Over $4,800 was raised for the early childhood education center classrooms, and it was such a fun community event that brought together both local vendors and national vendors, who traveled in for the special event.

    Other than Rissy Roo's attending as the Fashion Sponsor, Salon Kink was also a sponsor of the event. They styled the hair on all of our Roo Girl models at the event, and even did the makeup for our Roo Girl Juli!

    Thirty six vendors were present in total, including Lululemon Athletica, Aearance Dermatology, Arbonne, BathFitter, Bocca, Brace Urcelf, Cutco, Embellish, Hope Jewel, India Hicks, Le Fashion Cottage, Lularoe, Lusciously Scented, Marilyn Chackman, Mary Kay, Messed & Distressed, Monat, NuSkin, Paper Chase, Pendant of Light, Perfectly Posh, Premier Designs Jewelers, Psychic Answers, Pure Romance, RetroChic Beauty, Sabai Soap, Stella & Dot, Sugar on Topp, LLC, Tara Bella, Traveling Jewels, Usborne Books and More, Wildtree, Younique, and 3 Girls Gifts.
