If you don’t know about Snapchat yet, it’s a photo messaging app where users can take pictures, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them to their friends. The photos and videos are known as “Snaps!” If you don’t have the app yet, you can download it by searching “Snapchat” in Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Storefront on your smartphones. It’s not yet on Windows Phones, but hopefully it will be coming to the Windows storefront soon! You can also learn more about the app on their website here: www.snapchat.com.

We love dressing up at Rissy Roo’s, and our Roo Girls have been having so much fun ‘dressing up’ their own images and videos on Snapchat, that we wanted to bring the Snapchat fun to RissyRoos.com, as well! Plus, we totally love the cute ghost mascot! So, find us on Snapchat at RissyRoos and watch for special deals that will only be available there. With Prom Season here, there’s lots of Snapchat deals to come – keep a look out for our Snaps!

Bryan Cranston Helps a Fan Get a Date to Prom

The Miley Cyrus promposal has been topping our charts as the best prom proposal of 2014, but we may have just discovered a new favorite! Recently, Breaking Bad fan Stefan Montana ran into actor Bryan Cranston on the streets and asked Bryan to help him with his promposal. Of course, the awesome Bryan obliged to help…in the most badass Breaking Bad way possible! Check out the Bryan Cranston promposal here:

The title of the YouTube video is called “Bryan Cranston Got Me a Date to Prom!” so we can happily assume that Maddie gave a resounding “YES!” Of course, how could you say “no,” to “the one who knocks” to begin with? Way too scary! If Maddie did give a “no” to the promposal, her best course of action definitely would be to tread lightly!

It doesn’t end there, though. One of Stefan’s friends got a “behind the scenes” look at Stefan asking Bryan for some promposal help. Check it out here:

We love how ecstatic both Stefan and Bryan are towards the end of the promposal – they both seemed like they had a lot of fun with it! It’s definitely always exciting to see a TV star as big as Bryan Cranston having fun with his fans. And, of course, with the Breaking Bad TV show finally over, it was nice to get a little taste of Walter White back in action. You’re a lucky girl, Maddie, for getting such a unique promposal from your date (and from a celebrity)! We hope the two of you have a wonderful time at prom!

What did you think of the Bryan Cranston promposal? Do you wish you could get a celebrity in on your prompsal? We sure do! Make sure to keep your eyes peeled and your ears perked for opportunities!

Get the Katie Armiger Black Dress Jovani Look from the ACM Awards

As you already know from our post about Miranda Lambert at the 2014 ACM Awards last week, there were so many gorgeous looks at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards! Well, Miranda’s looks weren’t our only favorites of the night. We were also stunned by Country artist Katie Armiger’s Red Carpet look, and for a very good reason: she was wearing one of our favorite dress designers – Jovani Fashions!

katie armiger 94189 ACM Awards

 Katie wore Jovani style 94189, a stunning lace gown with leather accents and an edgy plunging neckline. Both lace and leather are so in right now, and this dress shows how to perfectly pair the two trends in one look. Plus, the dress couldn’t have been any more perfect for a Red Carpet look, and it was so figure flattering on her!

We especially loved how she paired it with dark red lips and nails, a sparkly gold purse, and minimal jewelry. The dark red lips and nails always pairs perfectly with lace, leather, and black, giving of a classic look of sophistication. And, we loved that she let the plunging neckline and lace accents of this dress speak for it self by keeping the jewelry minimal. The gold clutch was the perfect accent piece – simple, but powerful!

To finish of Jovani 94189 with Katie’s clutch touch, we recommend going with La Regale 27039 Shiny Metal Clutch or Coloriffics HB172 Silver Stone Clutch.

La Regale 27039 gold clutch

La Regale 27039 is a metal clutch with an inside strap. The magnetic closure adds ease to this evening bag. This clutch comes in Gold, Black, or Silver.

Coloriffics hb172_s_f_300x255

For the hard case clutch look like Katie rocks, go with Coloriffics HB172. It’s an out of this world silver clutch handbag covered in rhinestones. It only comes in Silver, but don’t worry – you can easily match Silver or Gold accessories with Jovani 94189.

Miranda Lambert at the 2014 ACM Awards in 2 Gorgeous Dresses

The 2014 ACM Awards have come and gone, and they were so much fun to watch! It was held this past Sunday, April 6th, in Las Vegas. This year, the Academy of Country Music celebrated their 50th year, and it was done in such style.

Of course, as usual Miranda Lambert was the belle of the country ball, but she does a good job showing her humbleness no matter what. The country queen took home three trophies at the ACM Awards this year, saying “I cannot believe this; I really didn’t expect it.” Congrats, Miranda!

Her trophies weren’t the only bling she was rocking at the awards ceremony, though. She looked so glam in her nude sparkly dress rocking the ACM Red Carpet. The tight v-neck spaghetti strapped dress fit her like a glove, and we are in love with the sparkly sequins on it!

49th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards - Arrivals

Nude is a popular trend right now, making Miranda’s nude gown look is perfect for bringing to prom. To steal her look, check out Terani style P3131, an illusion v-neck spaghetti strap gown with sheer mesh skirt and crystal and beaded embellishments at the bust and midsection.

Terani p3131 nude dressThat wasn’t the only look that Miranda wore to this year’s American Country Music Awards that’s perfect of rocking at prom, though! Miranda was all about changing up her dresses at the event this year, and we were loving every look she wore. The other dress she rocked that has prom written all over it was the coral strapless lace number she wore while showing off all of her trophies in the press room after the ceremony ended.

49th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards - Press Room

To get her so girly coral lace look, we’re all about La Femme style 19160, a fit and flare all over short lace dress. This was also a dress we mentioned last week in our blog post about how to get Lea Michele’s 2014 Kids Choice Awards look, so this is definitely a perfect dress to be rocking celebrity style at prom! Other than the Hot Coral color you see below, this dress also comes in Navy, Nude, Powder Blue, and White – so many options!

Lovely Lea Michele at the 2014 Kids Choice Awards

The 2014 Kids Choice Awards were just a few days ago, and they were so fun to watch! Two of our favorite girls of the year, Ariana Grande and Jennifer Lawrence, took the show bringing home so many orange blimps! Ariana took home a blimp for her show Sam and Cat, and also took one home for Favorite TV Actress. J. Law had the big win of the night with 3 blimps: 1 for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire as Favorite Movie, Favorite Movie Actress, and Favorite Female Buttkicker! Congrats, Girls!

As you know, the show wasn’t all we were watching, though. Our eyes were glued to the Red…ahem…Orange Carpet watching all of the lady celebrities strut their style. Our favorite dressed girl of the night was undoubtedly the lovely Lea Michele. She looked so gorgeous in her coral color lace short dress there was no doubt in our heads that she was our favorite look of the night!

Plus, she had such a fun time honing her inner Marylin Monroe that how could you not love her??

Lea Michele Marilyn Monroe Kids Choice Awards 2014

Another reason we love her Kids Choice Awards look? Because it’s so easy (and so in style) to copy for Prom 2014! For a Lea Michele dress look, there’s two La Femme dresses that we’re loving – check them out below:

La Femme style 20386 is an adorable strapless tulle dress with a ruffled hem. The bodice is covered with lace and scattered jewels, making this dress so celeb glam!

La Femme 20386 hot coral

La Femme style 19160 is all over lace! This v-neck sequin cocktail dress with a criss cross ruched bodice seems simple, but has so much detail to it. Multi shaped iridescent stones adorn the neckline and straps to give it an extra bit if sparkle.

La Femme 19160 hot coral

Whether one of these dresses, or another short coral dress that you love, have fun accessorizing just like Lea, too! We loved that Lea kept the jewelry to a minimum and chose to brighten up the whole look with neon pink lipstick. Such a perfect combo and unique way to rock the coral color!

Fun Spring Break Ideas For Every Budget

Your friends have talked about it for months planning away and setting up airfares and  tours for their awesome spring break getaway to a tropical destination. However, given the astronomical price of the trip, you will not be joining. There is no reason to be bummed out, though – a lot of girls spend spring break at home or on campus for many different reasons. So, for those hanging back, we came up with some ways to fill up your week without emptying your wallet, all while still enjoying your time like you were away on vacation! Read on for some fun and simple Spring Break ideas.

Spring Break

Road Trip It

Just because you didn’t plan a lavish resort getaway doesn’t mean you have to stay in the house all week. Grab a buddy and take a road trip to somewhere you haven’t been in a while, possibly even to a family member’s or old friend who moved away. This way, you could save cash on a place to stay. The trip will give you a chance to bond with someone, and have a real adventure. Remember to pack a cooler with drinks and snacks so you don’t have to spend money on the road.

Road Trip

Volunteer

Be a do-gooder! Use your week off to do something to benefit others by volunteering somewhere like a community center, nursing home, or animal shelter. It’s a great way to spend your week, and you’ll for sure feel like it was time well-spent. For a list of places looking for help, check out www.volunteermatch.org.

Spend Time Outdoors

Use the good weather to your advantage by getting a new outdoor hobby like bike riding or hiking. Take it to the beach and play volleyball or Frisbee in the sand! Make it an all day event by having a picnic or barbecue with family or friends. Not only is this good for your mind, but good for your body, too!

Beach Volleyball

Spring Cleaning

Rainy day? Spend some time inside spring cleaning! Go through your closet and make a pile of clothes you know you are never going to wear again. Then, donate the clothing to charity or bring higher priced items to a consignment shop. You will feel refreshed after you eliminate clutter and have room to buy some new Summer stuff.

Focus on YOU!

Our last Spring break idea is to make sure to take some hardcore “you time.” Be selfish for a few days and focus only on yourself. Catch up on sleep, or dive into a book you have always wanted to read. Learn something new by taking a dance or cooking class. The possibilities are endless!

Are you staying home this Spring Break? What are your plans? Share with us by commenting below!
