Prom 2014

  • Rissy Roo’s Prom Dress Testimonial: Kiara and Kiana Chiles

    Prom 2014 may be over, but we still have so many more prom testimonials to share with you from our Roo Girls! The latest is from sisters Kiara and Kiana Chiles. Their mom recently sent us a prom picture of them together both wearing their Rissy Roo's prom dresses, and they look fabulous!

    Alicia, their mom, said:

    "Thank you Rissy Roo's for the great service and the beautiful dresses!"

    And, here are the two girls, looking so gorgeous:

    Kiara and Kiana Chiles in their Rissy Roo's Prom Dresses

    Both girls are wearing Mori Lee by Madeline Gardner dresses. Kiara (left) is wearing Sticks & Stones by Mori Lee 9199, a short strapless ombre tulle cocktail dress with beading and a corset back. Kiana (right) is wearing Sticks & Stones by Mori Lee 9253, a strapless party dress with beautiful ombre beading on the bodice, corset back, and a short tulle shirt.

    Both of these dresses are such fun looks, and Kiara and Kiana rocked them so well! While these girls wore their short Mori Lee dresses to Prom, these two looks are versatile enough to also rock at Homecoming, or even for a Sweet 16 birthday party.

    Thank you, Alicia, for sending us the picture! We're glad that Kiara and Kiana had such a wonderful time at their Prom!

     

  • Rissy Roo's Prom Dress Testimonial: Kassy Delossantos

    Prom Season may be over, but we have so many more prom dress testimonials to share with you to keep the dream (and now reality) alive! This week, we heard from Alex Fritz and his mom, Dina, about the prom dress that was purchased from Rissy Roo's or Alex's girlfriend, Kassy Delossantos. Both Alex and Dina had such nice words to share with us about Kassy's dress and their wonderful prom night! Check out what they had to say below:

    "Kassy Delossantos' dress was beautiful. She looked stunning. Perfect dress for an amazing young lady."

    -Dina Fritz

    "Thank you for the perfect dress for my amazing girlfriend :-) <3"

    -Alex Fritz

    Kassy Delossantos 2_600x400Kassy sure did look stunning in her Rissy Roo's prom dress! And, we loved Alex's white suit and matching green tie - what a stylish couple! To get Kassy's look, go for Sherri Hill style 9713. This fun and flirty high low dress is perfect for dancing the night away! The dress features a high lace neckline, beaded straps and waistline, lace bodice, and a soft flowy chiffon skirt. We love the stunning open back on this dress! Other than green, it also comes in coral and ivory.

    Kassy's silver headband was a great way to add some sparkle to her look, and matched the dress' sparkly waistband perfectly. Such a stand-out accessory!

    If you're a Roo Girl, make sure to send us your pictures from Prom 2014 this year! We love seeing all of our girls dressed up in the prom dresses that they picked!

  • More Prom Dress Testimonials from Tahrea Sherman!

    Last year, Roo Girl Tahrea Sherman wrote us such a nice message saying that she loved her prom dress. Well, we were so happy to hear from her again this year, after attending Prom 2014 in her Rissy Roo's dress! If you read her testimonial last year, you'd know that she loves the color pink just as much as we do at Rissy Roo's. A year later, she's still all about being Pretty in Pink, because she rocked the color again for this year's prom! She chose the Fabulouss by Mac Duggal style 76629F sequin halter gown in Neon Pink for her prom dress.

    Here's the sweet note that Tahrea shared along with her picture:

    Thank you Rissy Roo's for a beautiful dress two years in a row!

    Tahrea Sherman

    The dazzling pink prom dress that Tahrea chose is made to feel like a queen in, and we can tell that she did! The dress has a halter neckline and is full of beautiful stone detail that looked so perfect on Tahrea.

    Thank you, Tahrea, for sending us your prom pictures again! We're so glad you had yet another perfect prom year! Pretty in Pink two years in a row!

    Stay tuned for more prom dress testimonials from our Roo Girls!

  • Joe Biden Gets Asked to Prom By Connecticut Teen

    It looks like not all dream prom dates consist of hot hunk musicians and A-list actors! One Connecticut girl had her eyes on taking someone else to her prom, and he was definitely more than the average person to appear randomly on Page Six...it's Vice President Joe Biden!

    Joe Biden Vice President Joe Biden

    It turns out Talia Masseli, a student at Newington High School in Newington, Connecticut had a deep desire to have Biden escort her to her Senior Prom. She made this decision back in the Fall and took priority in writing him as soon as possible explaining, “I am inviting you so far in advance because I’m sure many 17-year-old girls send you prom invitations, and I had to beat them to it.” She later cheerily announced, “I could only tolerate a high school dance if I was to be escorted by the most delightful man in America.” Way to go Talia! If this was an election for sweetest and most confident promposal, you would have our votes!

     Even though the Vice President attending Talia's prom would have been the ultimate fairytale, Biden had a scheduling conflict that did not permit him to be in Connecticut at the same time as the event. However, Talia did receive a sweet ending! Talia got a package at her home before the prom with a beautiful corsage made of red, white, and blue flowers along with a note from Joe Biden on official White House stationary. He expressed,  “I am flattered, but my schedule will not permit me to be in Connecticut on Friday evening, but I hope you will accept this corsage and enjoy your prom as much as I did mine.” Wow, what a guy!

    Even though Talia didn't get to go to prom with her dream guy, she still has a wonderful story and an extra special gift! Vice President Biden invited her to visit Washington, DC this summer, which she plans to do!

  • Rissy Roo’s Prom Dress Testimonial: Tori Springer & A Prom Dress Surprise

    We have such an exciting prom dress story to share with you from one of our customers! Roo Girl Tori Springer had her senior prom this year, and on her search for her perfect prom dress while on a serious budget, she came to Rissy Roo's for help. Here's her story that her mom and dad, Mary and Vince, sent to us about them having some prom fun with her daughter:

    Dear Shelly,

    My daughter Tori's senior prom was May 17th and with her father's recent operation and all that goes with that, we were on a serious dress budget. We looked all over (but knowing you had the best dresses) we went in to check your sale items and then she tried on the Papparazzi dress and fell in love with it. Sadly, we left without it and although she was understanding, I knew from that moment on, no other dress could compare for her. Thinking about this being her last prom and her upcoming scoliosis surgery, it was only right that we do something to make her night extra special. I just want to thank you so much when you came over to us that day, and offered the 10% discount, that really made a difference. Below is a link to how we presented it to her (had to trick her a little :) and some photos of her in it. We also have a 13 year old daughter, and I know there's only one dress shop we'll be going to in the future,

    Sincerely, Mary & Vince Springer

    Mary and Vince's "trick" for presenting the prom dress to Tori was so cute - it brought us to tears! Watch it here:

    And, check out Tori looking gorgeous in her prom dress below! She chose Mori Lee style 95051 for her dress, an elaborately beaded ball gown with a corset back and a full tulle skirt. It's one of our sale dresses - it used to be $478, but is now only $334.60!

    Thank you Springer Family for sending us pictures of Tori in her prom dress! Tori, we hope you enjoyed your prom dress surprise and hope there was much more prom fun to come this year for you!

  • Rissy Roo’s Prom Dress Testimonial: Katlyn Rice & her Superhero Prom

    We've had so many of our Roo Girls send in picture of them in their Rissy Roo's dress at prom...and we've been so amazed at the pictures each and every time! One of the most recent pictures we received was so super...because it involved superhero Captain America! Check out Katlyn Mariah Rice below with her date, John Thomas Rayborn, both matching perfectly in blue...and John showing off his Captain America alter ego underneath his shirt!

    Katlyn and John in their superhero style prom outfits!

     That's not the only reason Katlyn's and John's outfits are superhero style, though. When Katlyn's mom, Heather, shared the pictures with us, she told us that the two high schoolers attended two proms in one night! Here's what Heather said:

    "My daughter's Senior Prom! The dress was PERFECT!! This dress was perfect for not one but two proms on the same night!!! Thanks Rissy Roo's for a wonderful experience!"

    - Heather Sullivan Rice

    We can't believe that Katyln and John attended two proms in one night - they must have had such an amazing time together! Katlyn looked so stunning wearing Blush Prom style 9771. Dramatic shiny circular stones in a geometric pattern accentuate the one-shoulder and highlight the waist on this stunning prom dress. While you can't see it in Katlyn's pictures, the backstraps form a beautiful open back. The royal blue color of the dress makes for the perfect outfit for Captain America's girlfriend!

    Katlyn in Blush 9771

    Katlyn and John's prom day was a superhero prom all around...from the Captain America shirt, to attending two proms in one night! We also thought the white roses were the perfect Captain America and girlfriend accessory. We love the trend of guys wearing superhero tee shirts under their prom suits. It's such a creative way to show off your personality...and have so much fun with prom pictures, of course! What do you think of it? Leave us a comment below and let us know!

  • Makeup Monday: the Must Have Orange Trend for Spring 2014

    From the runways of Paris to the streets of New York City, there is a fabulously bold makeup trend that is written (painted) on every girls face! Although soft pinks and ethereal silvers are also big for Spring/Summer 2014, it seems like shades of orange and coral are all the rage. This orange craze isn't just the new classic red lip either, as it has become a beauty staple on eyes and cheeks, too!

    Orange Makeup Runway ModelThis popping hue is so versatile and fun, it can be worn from morning to-night! Many girls have the misconception that these orange and coral shades can only be worn with certain skin tones, but the truth of the matter is they can be put on every face as long as the proper color is chosen and applied correctly. We recommend girls with warmer skin tones try something bright, perhaps with more tangerine notes. If you have cooler skin, try for something more bold and on the stronger coral/red side. Also, if choosing a matte orange lipstick, avoid adding anything extra like gloss and liner. Let the lips do all the talking!

    When adding this shade to cheeks and eyes, it will give a bright hint of sunshine. If you are tan it will give you the right amount of glow, while if you are more fair-skinned, it will give cheeks and eyes a beautiful, unique pop.

    Orange Eye MakeupJust remember when using these shades to try not to over-do it. Allow your face's natural beauty to add to the color, not the other way around. Try this trend for prom or any special occasion (Graduation, perhaps?) and I am sure everyone will be amazed how awesome you look!

  • GoProm Promposal makes for a Shaun White Prom!

    Celebrity promposals are all the rage lately, and yet another celeb delivers on an night to remember for one lucky prom-goer: Shaun White! High schooler Carly Monzo came up with such a creative idea to ask the Olympian and pro snowboarder to prom: by using a staple in the snowboarding industry, a GoPro! Carly smartly even named her promposal after the camera, with the name GoProm. So cute!

    You can watch an overview of the promposal here:

    http://youtu.be/_Wzajq741yE

    We were so happy to hear that Shaun White took time out if his busy schedule to surprise Carly at her prom! ABC had the scoop, and this is what they said:

    "A month ago, the Montgomery County senior at Mount Saint Joseph Academy in Flourtown, and her friends got creative.

    Monzo posted a video proposal online but got no response from the busy pro snowboarder, skateboarder and musician until Friday night.

    A couple hours into her prom at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club, there was a special performance.

    "Curtains drop and the band just starts jamming and I was like, 'Oh my goodness," said Monzo.

    White appeared on stage in his tux and with his band, Bad Things. They performed three songs and invited Monzo on stage.

    "To be honest with you if there wasn't pictures or video evidence, I would have thought I had a dream," she said.

    The Olympian lit up social media, snapping photos with dozens of students before revealing how he made a secret trip from Austria just to surprise Monzo.

    "It was really about being there with my friends, my whole entire grade got to share this moment with me and it was so awesome," she said."

    So cool! Click here to read the full story and see more pictures.
