    Homecoming season is just as big as prom season. With all of the new arrivals coming in, the new school year is definitely going to start off in style. Formal wear designers really stepped it up a notch with their new Fall 2013 styles and designs. One of the biggest trends coming back this fall is the one shoulder look. A stylish way that this trend is making an appearance in designers’ fall lines is as part of sequin dresses. Marissa Sharp, owner of Rissy Roo’s, explains, "Sequin dresses are timeless. You can never go wrong with a sparkly dress. Not just for homecoming but for any formal occasion." This timeless piece combined with the eye-catching one shoulder trend gives it a whole new, unique look. A great example of this trend that can be found at Rissy Roo’s is Shail K's stunning one sleeve cocktail dress style KK3157. This dress showcases an intricate beading design throughout the entire dress, with a chunky jewel detail at the wrist. It’s a perfect combination of the classic look with an edgy twist for a number of different formal events.

    A look that will never go out of trend for homecoming or prom is the baby doll style dress.

Baby doll style dresses are flattering on all body types, which is part of the reason the style has stayed so popular. A homecoming baby doll dress that’s bound to turn heads is Clarisse style 2016, which is available at Rissy Roo’s. This dress has a beautiful sweetheart neckline, a flirty tulle skirt, and delicate crystal and sequin detailing throughout.

It is the perfect dress to give girls the confidence to start the new school year off right.

    Sheer is an up-and-coming trend that started to make an appearance this Prom 2013 season, and is sure to be one of the most popular styles for Homecoming 2013.

The style was first made popular for Prom 2013 by Sherri Hill, and now designers like Jovani, Mac Duggal, and Mori Lee are making sheer big parts of their collections, as well. One dress at Rissy Roo’s that’s sure to be popular this coming Homecoming season is Sherri Hill Style 8525 cocktail dress.

  • Roo Girls, Watch out for Scammers!

    This is one special report that no Roo Girl should miss! NBC News recently did a story on their "Rossen Reports" Today show about how teens are being scammed with fake designer dresses. It made us sad to hear that scammers are becoming such a problem when it comes to purchasing designer dresses, that we wanted to make sure to pass on the information to you.

    NBC News Scammers Targeting Teens at Prom

    Jeff Rossen, the NBC reporter, started the report by mentioning:

    "We've told you about scam artists selling fake electronics, handbags... the list goes on. Now these scammers are targeting the prom, fooling teeange girls with fake designer dresses, charging hundreds of dollars for gowns that literally fall apart in your hands. Their websites are a teen girl's dream, offering designer prom gowns at deep discounts. The sites sure look real, but designers say it's all a scam."

    With how big online shopping has become over the years, it's definitely become more and more difficult to pick out the scams.

    "The federal government has shut down hundreds of these sites, but the scammers are tough to catch, many of them based overseas. Good luck getting your money back. And those priceless prom memories."

    There are ways you can protect yourself, though! Here are some tips:

    1. Call the company and ask if they are an authorized dealer. Remember, you're always welcome to call Rissy Roo's at our toll-free number 1-866-779-7667 to discuss your order.
    2. Look on the dress designer's website to see if the store is listed as an authorized website.
    3. Look for verification seals on the bottom of the website, and make sure to click through to check verification.
    4. Check if the website has a blog and a presence on prominent social networks, like Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

    This is definitely a problem that's grown substantially over the past couple of years. Whether looking for a dress online for prom, graduation, or homecoming, definitely keep your eyes and ears perked. If you ever come across a fake designer dress website, please contact us and let us know. We can all work together to try to stop the scams!

  • Homecoming 2012: Start Shopping Online!

    Styles for Fall Homecoming Dress collections have been hitting the inter-webs since the day Prom season ended.  With months until the next school year even begins, it seems that dress shopping this summer is a little farfetched, but think again!  Shopping for a Homecoming dress now means more widespread style and size selections for girls out there looking for their dream gowns.

    The 2012 Homecoming season will be draped in lace, and a lot of sparkle!  For your dance this fall you might want to wear a short dress, and save the floor-length ones for Prom in 2013.  Short cocktail dresses this year feature sequin designs and lace accents that are unique and stylish.  Vintage looks seem to be stirring up the most attention.  Sparkly dresses are everywhere, coming from designers like Sherri Hill, Alyce Paris, Tony Bowls, and Clarrise.  Sleek, fitted skirts and wide, poufy styles are being released, so you’re sure to find a dress that suits your personal style.

    If you plan on taking part in Homecoming court, or are looking for a more formal dress, long evening gown trends seem to be favoring a sweetheart bodice and empire waistline this year.  These long skirt styles make for a more regal look, and for those of you who hate wearing insanely high heels, this style makes you look a bit taller too.

    There are so many unique dresses out there right now, so don’t miss out on them when the crowds roll in this August and September.  Homecoming dress websites are posting hundreds of dresses every week.  It might still be summer, but designers are already in full swing making sure their fashions are looking great.  The perfect dress for you is waiting out there somewhere, now it’s just time to find it!
