  • Miss VT Teen USA, Sophia Hadeka, in her Winning Rissy Roo's Dress!

    In November, one of our Roo Girls that we sponsored in her state pageant, Sophia Hadeka, was crowned Miss Vermont Teen USA 2013, and we were so proud of her! We wrote a blog post about her winning the pageant earlier this year, but she recently sent in a very nice thank you note and pictures, that we had to make sure to share them with you! Check them out below.

    Here's Sophia's thank you note:

  • Dress of the Week: Sherri Hill 21187

    There were so many beautiful Sherri Hill dresses worn during this year's Miss USA pageant, that we couldn't possibly fit them all into one (or two!) posts. Sherri Hill style 21187 was one dress that we loved, but didn't mention in our Miss USA 2013 posts earlier this week. So, we decided to give it a special shout-out and make it our Dress of the Week!

    Miss Nebraska Sherri Hill 21187

    Miss Nebraska wore this sexy red lace dress during the pageant, and she looked absolutely breathtaking! It hugged her curves so well, and the nude coloring made her tan skin glow even more. We also loved the statement necklace she wore with the dress - it complimented the lace in the dress so well and gave her such an elegant look!

    Sherri Hill 21187 red lace dress

    Sherri Hill style 21187 is a glamorous short cocktail dress complete with classy and chic lace design and scalloped hem. It's such a pretty minidress for graduation, homecoming, a semi-formal party, or just a fun night out! It comes in a variety of colors, such as black, blue, ivory, navy, and blush. We love how the variety of colors this dress comes in lets you dress it up with a more formal color like black, or even give it a more summery look by choosing the ivory or light blue color. It definitely makes it an easy dress to wear to so many different social occasions...or maybe even on stage at a pageant like Miss Nebraska!

     

  • Dress of the Week: Shail K. Style KK3133L

    For this week, our Dress of the Week is Shail K. style KK3133L in honor of The Bachelor now being back on the air for Season 17! The Season Premiere aired on January 7th, and the second episode aired earlier this week on Monday, January 14th. This season, The Bachelor that all the ladies are vying for is Sean Lowe - a 29 year old entrepreneur from Dallas, TX.

    We picked this gorgeous Shail K. gown as our Dress of the Week because Jackie Parr, one of the ladies on the show, wore the dress on the Season Premiere! Jackie, a 25 year old cosmetics consultant from Ormond Beach, FL, couldn't have looked more stunning as she met Sean for the first time. She must have left a lasting impression because in both the episodes so far, Sean gave her a rose! We can't wait to see what happens in the coming episodes!

    Shail K. style KK3133L is a hand beaded gown that fits like a glove and accentuates your curves. It has a sexy high front slit and comes in 3 colors: Bronze, Ivory/Silver, and Platinum. Jackie wore the Bronze color on The Bachelor.

  • Miss USA Wins Miss Universe 2012!

    We're so happy and proud that our very own Miss USA, Olivia Culpo, was crowned Miss Universe 2012 this past Wednesday (Dec 19th)! She looked so incredibly beautiful, and we can't believe that the USA finally has the crown again after 15 years! Olivia beat out 88 competitors to take the crown!

    Olivia is 20 years old and is currently a sophmore at Boston University. It's so impressive that she's juggling college while competing in such difficult pageants - really shows you what you can accomplish when you put your mind to it!

    During the preliminaries, when Olivia was named one of the final 16 contestants, she donned a purple Sherri Hill  bandage mini-dress (style 2932). During the final competition night on Wednesday, Olivia wore a tight navy blue mini-dress with a sequin bodice on stage for the event's opening number. For the swimsuit portion of the competition, she wore a purple and blue bikini. At the end of the event, she looked gorgeous in a wintery red velvet gown with a plunging neckline.

    There were also so many other beautiful ladies and dresses at the event - it must of been hard to be a judge and pick the winner! A lot of the women were wearing some of our favorite dress designers - Sherri Hill, Mac Duggal, and Tony Bowls! Check out some of the dresses below.

    The contestants all looked so pretty when they were wearing the Sherri Hill bandage dresses at the preliminaries. You can see Miss USA all the way to the left in her purple dress.

    A lot of the contestants were wearing Mac Duggal dresses! Below are some of the contestants in their beautiful MacDuggal gowns - clockwise from top left: Costa Rica, Nazareth Cascante; Great Britain, Holly Hale; Jamaica, Chantal Zaky; Slovak Republic, Lubica Stepanova; Peru, Nicole Faveron; Ghana, Gifty Ofori.

    Miss Tanzania, Winfrida Dominic (left); Miss New Zealand, Talia Bennet (middle); and Miss Ghanna, Gifty Ofori (right), all looked gorgeous in Tony Bowls dresses!

    Are you excited that Miss USA won, or were you rooting for another contestant? Leave us a comment below and let us know!

  • Rissy Roo’s Pageant Dress Testimonial: Kelcie Klaus

    A huge congratulations goes out to Kelcie Klaus for winning Miss Gloucester County 2013 on November 3, 2012! She looked so stunning in her Rissy Roo's dress - we're so proud of her!

    Kelcie Klaus (orange dress) is crowned Miss Gloucester County 2013 & Julia Magill (pink dress) is crowned Miss Gloucester County's Outstanding Teen

     

    She recently sent us the picture above of her being crowned, with some very kind words to accompany it:

    "I want to thank the girls of Rissy Roo's in Linwood for helping me find the perfect dress! After trying on countless dresses,  the honest employees helped to narrow my choices and choose a lovely orange gown right off the rack! The dress fits perfectly and held up so well! I have competed wearing my Rissy Roos gown in five Miss New Jersey preliminary locals, steamed the dress countless times,  and has been to the seamstress twice for length yet the dress looks as good as new! Thank you so much for offering a large selection of dresses and helpful  employees to make my decision an easy one!"

    Miss Gloucester County is the official local pageant to qualify for the Miss New Jersey & Miss America pageants, so we're proud that she's from the very same state that Rissy Roo's is from! Now that she proudly wears the Miss Gloucester County crown, she'll be moving on to compete for Miss New Jersey - we wish her the best of luck!
