Get The Pretty Little Liars Prom Dresses From The Season 5 Finale!

The Pretty Little Liars Season 5 finale was so intense that we almost couldn’t take it! The girls had to trade their fabulous sense of style in for prison jumpsuits in this episode, and this may have been one of the all time creepiest PLL episodes, but that didn’t stop us from keeping our eyes on the prize: the beautiful prom dresses that the PLL girls wore! Our favorite Pretty Little Liars prom dresses, of course, were hands-down Hanna’s, Ashley Benson, and Emily’s, Shay Mitchell. Why? Because they’re made by two of our favorite designers, which means you can get the same exact looks for prom!

Pretty Little Liars Season 5 Finale

Hanna Marin’s PLL Season 5 Finale Prom Dress

Hanna Marin looked radiant in red with Sherri Hill style 32107. This dress is a strapless mermaid gown with a sweetheart neckline, beaded lace bodice and a satin skirt with a short train. The dress fit her like a glove! We especially loved that she accessorized with black elbow-length gloves. The combo of the elegant gown with the gloves stayed true to the opera theme.

Emily Fields’ PLL Season 5 Finale Prom Dress

Emily Fields took romantic to the next level with her prom dress: Mac Duggal style 78897, which is part of the Prom 2015 Mac Duggal Royalty collection. Emily (Shay) sure did look like royalty in the dress! Just like Hanna, Emily added elbow-length gloves for that extra touch of elegance.

Mac Duggal 78897This sophisticated dress features sheer illusion cap sleeves and a high collar that is reminiscent of the most popular runway fashions. Sparkling like none other, the sheer illusion cap sleeves are decorated with silver beading and crystals. Creating a sexy look with a plunging v-neckline that leads to a starburst embellishments along the waistline, this gorgeous evening gown is all about making a serious statement.

Wanelo 2015 Contest Winner: Abby W

To help get our Roo Girls ready for prom, we held a Prom 2015 Wanelo Contest. Over the past month, Rissy Roo’s Wanelo fans showed us their favorite Rissy Roo’s Prom 2015 dresses by creating a “RissyRoos.com Prom Trends” Wanelo Collection and saving the dresses they’re obsessing over from RissyRoos.com. Entrants had to save their favorite prom dresses from RissyRoos.com and tag the dresses with #RissyRoosProm, #Prom, and other creative hashtags to explain the styles of the dresses they were saving.

Girls were judged on tag accuracy, overall style of collection, and overall number of products from RissyRoos.com added to their collection. With 15 entries, the competition was fierce! Girls saved beautiful dresses, and included some very creative tags. But, with only one winner, Abby’s collection stood out amongst the rest. She was all about the hashtags on her board, which we loved. She used hashtags like #layered, #blacklace, #sparkle, #openback, #rainbowjeweled, and more. Congrats on winning, Abby! Stay tuned to see what dress Abby picks as her winning prize.

Prom Primping: Most Flattering Hairstyles for Different Necklines

Some of us spend just as long browsing online for the perfect prom hairstyle as we do shopping for dresses. It seems like the least of your concerns at first, but as the big day inches near, you realize you’re totally clueless – especially if you’re doing your hair yourself! Finding something that’s elegant but easy can be really tricky, and on top of that, you want something that complements the neckline of the dress. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of a few different hairstyles that you can definitely do yourself and that will also turn your dress into an ensemble.

Halter Tops: Loose Braid

roos1

Halter tops are tricky because you want to show off the pretty neckline, but they do show a lot of shoulder, which can cause some visual imbalance for those of us who are a bit broader across the top. Piling all your hair on top of your head can leave your shoulder area looking a little bare, while wearing it all down will cover up that pretty neckline. We think Blake Lively makes a good compromise by doing a loose fishtail braid thrown over her shoulder. You can wear it up high like hers, or you can start it down at the nape of your neck for a more beachy look. It helps that this style is super easy!

Spaghetti Straps: Tousled Chignon

roos2

When your dress has delicate elements on top, such as spaghetti straps, you want to play off of it with a delicate hairstyle. A tousled side-chignon, like the one Jessica Alba is wearing, is the perfect way to create a look that’s feminine and romantic. Some subtle jewelry, like long earrings and a small bracelet, can really bring it all together. Click here for an easy chignon tutorial!

One-Shoulder: Ballerina Bun

roos3

Nobody opts for a dramatic, one-shoulder neckline with the intention of covering it up! Asymmetrical necklines are a show-stopper, so let them do all the talking by keeping your hair up and away. There’s nothing more chic than a sleek ballerina bun with this neckline – it’s such an elegant and classic hairstyle for a dress that has an edge. Go for natural eye makeup, a shimmery highlight, and a bold lip if you really want to make a statement with your style.

Strapless/Sweetheart: Loose Side Waves

roos4

Strapless dresses are well-loved as prom styles, and admittedly, they leave a lot of room to play around with hairstyles. That being said, there’s nothing we love more than letting some loose waves fall over one shoulder when wearing a strapless dress. It reads slightly retro and extremely glam – just look how amazing Amy Adams looks in this look!  Here’s an easy tutorial so you can do it yourself.

High Neck: Chic Ponytail

roos5

High necklines are all the rage this year – everyone from Kate Blanchett to Adriana Lima is wearing them. In our opinion, they look sleek and maybe a little bit mysterious when paired with a clean, simple ponytail. Just look at Allison Williams – she pulls off this look perfectly a bold red lip!

A Prom Surprise Transforms Abby From Patient to Princess

Normal life is like a dream for 17 year old Abby Gladin from Atlanta, Georgia, who is living with Crohn’s disease, a chronic inflammatory bowl illness. For the last 10 years now, she’s been in and out of hospitals and doctors appointments, getting countless surgeries and missing out on tons of school. She lives such a difficult life, so one of her dreams is just to live a normal life. And one of the most normal and fun parts of any teenager is going to prom, of course. In Abby’s own words, all she wants is “a night of simple, sophisticated elegance.” We certainly couldn’t blame her.

Abby Gladin going prom dress shopping

So, one day while walking out of a routine doctor’s appointment, she got an amazing surprise. She found her parents telling her that they’d be taking her on an extra special prom dress shopping expedition, complete with her own chauffeured car from Uber, all arranged by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The car took everyone to a boutique in Georgia, where she could pick any dress she wanted for free! She told 11alive.com, “I feel so special!”

Some dresses were harder than others to wear because of her colostomy, a medical device attached to her abdomen, but she searched away! She explained, “I want my dress to be something you’d see on the red carpet.” After lots of looking, they found Abby’s perfect dress (she said “yes” to the dress!) and she looked so gorgeous that her mother couldn’t help but cry. Her mom explained, “Some days she doesn’t see how really beautiful she is because of this.” We sure hope this whole experience helped to show Abby just how special she is!

That wasn’t the end of her special day of prom shopping, though. Miss Georgia and Miss Colorado stopped by to place a special princess crown on Abby’s head!

Abby with Miss Colorado and Miss Georgia!

Even though the end of the school year will bring more surgeries, Abby can look forward to a special night in a special dress with her boyfriend. 11alive.com said that they will update the story once Abby attends prom with pictures of her all dressed up, so keep a look-out!

Happy International Women’s Day 2015!

Today is a very important day for all of our Roo Girls: It’s International Women’s Day! In case you’ve never heard of it before, it’s all about celebrating us: women! Many argue that the world is still an unequal place, and Women’s Day seeks to bring a greater awareness of women’s equality. Each year there is a new them, and this year’s International Women’s Day 2015 theme is “Make It Happen.” This means that while International Women’s Day is great because it brings awareness to an important cause, awareness simply isn’t enough. We must actively make the changes necessary to bring gender equality into the world.

Since our main goal at Rissy Roo’s is to help make each girl feel as beautiful as they are, we wanted to give our Roo Girls a little inspirational quote for today! There are so many powerful women out there that we should look up to and be inspired by, and one of those women that we’re a big fan of at Rissy Roo’s is Oprah Winfrey. She’s made an empire around inspiring, educating, and empowering women, so she is definitely a women that should be looked up to. So, below is one of her famous quotes that every women should keep in mind every day:

“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.”

-Oprah Winfrey

International Women's Day 2015

So, think like a queen, not only today, but every single day! Even though gender equality may still need to be worked on, being a women is something to be proud of, so hold your head high every single day!

If you want to learn more about International Women’s Day, make sure to check out their website at InternationalWomensDay.com. There, you can learn about the cause and how to you can start promoting change in the world. There’s also been a lot of support for International Women’s Day from other companies and sites this year, so be on the look-out. One of our favorites are YouTube’s #DearMe campaign, which you can watch below. It’s all about what advice you would have given your younger self. You can even GIF your own #DearMe message at: http://youtubedearme.com.

So, we’ll end with a important quote from the YouTube #DearMe video:

“Don’t let anybody else try to bring you down or make you second guess yourself.”

Work towards being a strong woman, today and every day, and be proud of yourself no matter what! And, teach the other women around you to be just as proud of themselves! Happy International Women’s Day from everyone at Rissy Roo’s!
