NOW OR NEVER: Get Your Free Leopard Print Scarf!

Remember last week when you could get a free leopard print scarf with your purchase? Well, our Roo Girls LOVED the scarves so much that we’re extending our sale for one more week! With only seven days left until Fall (September 23rd), this is your last chance to get Roo Ready for Homecoming and Back-to-School by getting such a cute scarf with your dress purchase.

Get a FREE Leopard Print Scarf through Saturday

And, you still get to choose which color you want – Grey (Promo Code: FreeG) or Brown (Promo Code: FreeB). So, match it to your Homecoming dress, or pick the color that best goes with your usual casual looks. Either way, you’ll be Fall ready in style!

Still torn on what type of Homecoming dress that you want? We love the one used in the above picture because it’s so versatile! It’s perfect for everything from Homecoming, to the Holidays and New Year’s Eve, to even a sexy Halloween costume! Faviana style 7403 is a sexy illusion cocktail dress with sparkly sequins, mesh inserts, and a stunning open back. The high neck opens up to a dramatic open back with a hidden zipper closure. While we love this short cocktail dress in black for its versatility, it also comes in the color eggplant, which is just as stunning. This dress would look perfect with either the Grey or Brown leopard print scarf for a little glam on your way to your Homecoming dance!

This is the final chance to snag this scarf for free with your purchase – it all ends on Saturday, September 20th, so get shopping! And, as always, feel free to contact us if you have any questions as you’re searching for your perfect dress, whether for Homecoming, Prom, or any other casual, semi-formal or formal event.

Miss America 2015: Miss New York, Kira Kazantsev!

We’ve kept you posted on the Miss America 2015 competition for a couple of months now because one of our favorite designers, Tony Bowls, is the exclusive evening gown sponsor of the event…and the wonderful pageant has officially come to an end as of last night! We’re very excited to announce that Miss America 2015 is Kira Kazantsev of New York!

Miss America 2015 Contestants

Does something about that statement sound familiar? It’s because this is the third year in a row that Miss New York took the Miss America crown…that’s right, this is a threepeat! Last year, Nina Davuluri took the Miss America 2014 crown, and she must have been very happy to pass it down to her fellow New Yorker, Kira, last night.  That’s not all, though…even Miss America 2013 was from New York, Mallory Hytes Hagan!

Miss America 2015, Kira Kazantsev!

While Kira is our new Miss America, all of the girls looked stunning… especially in their Tony Bowls dresses! The first runner up is Courtney Garrett, Miss Virginia, the second runner up was Ashton Campbell, Miss Arkansas, the third runner up was Victoria Cowen, Miss Florida, and the fourth runner up was Lauren Kuhn, Miss Massachusetts.

Kira’s got the smarts and talent all rolled up into one – she’s a vocalist, and is a future law student, having been accepted to Fordham’s law school. For her talent portion, Kira surprised everyone by singing Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” while sitting cross-legged on stage and banging a red plastic cup on the floor! And, she named combatting sexual assault in the military as the issue which she would want female U.S. Senators to press their male counterparts. She clearly has a very unique mind, very deserving of the Miss America crown!

Kira was crowned in a stunning backless Tony Bowls couture white long sleeved gown. She looked so elegant and graceful in it! If you want her look for Prom, or Homecoming, go with Tony Bowls Evenings TBE11457, a long sleeve jersey slim-fitting gown with beaded triangle bodice inset, beaded center front, softly gathered front bodice, beaded cuffs, open back with cowl drape, and a skirt with a flared back and train.

It’s Almost Time for TVD Season 6, and a New Trailer is Here!

If you’re anything like us, while we’ve already gotten through the worst of it, there is still one whole month until the new season of The Vampire Diaries comes out, and the withdraw is really starting to kick in! We’ve been checking constantly for updates…and one has finally arrived! A new extended teaser trailer was just released for TVD Season 6, and it may be enough to get us through this last month without Damon, Stefan, Elena, and the rest of the TVD crew.

While the first The Vampire Diaries Season 6 trailer that came out a couple of weeks ago was only thirty seconds long, and the Behind-The-Scenes Pics from the TVD Season 6 Photoshoot only revealed bits and pieces, the newest trailer is a full minute and 15 seconds, and we’re loving every second of it! It reveals even more spine tingling details about Season Six…not the least of which is a possible new love interest for Stephan?!…and we’ve been watching it on repeat to make sure we don’t miss anything. Some other deets the video reveals is a first look at a supernatural-free Mystic Falls, and just how far Elena is willing to go to see Damon again. See it all for yourself:

It all begins again on Thursday, October 2nd…can you tell that we’re counting down yet?! There’s so much to be revealed in this this season…and where the story of Elena, Stefan, and Damon will go overall (this could very well be the final season!)…that it’s hard to not get excited for October and what it will bring for the TVD crew. We’ll be waiting patiently, and will definitely update you on more news as it’s revealed! Get excited for more vampires, witches, the afterlife, and so much more of the supernatural in just a few weeks! Leave a comment below and let us know what you’re most excited about in the upcoming season.

Did you catch the Mid Season Finale of Pretty Little Liars Season 5 last week? It was such an intense ending to such a great TV series, and we can’t believe we are now on hiatus until December to follow the Pretty Little Liars girls further down the rabbit hole! But, the mid season finale wasn’t the only reason we were excited to watch Episode 12, “Taking This One To the Grave” of PLL at Rissy Roo’s. It was also the debut of our Homecoming 2014 ad, which debuted for our local Roo Girls in the Atlantic, Cape May, and Gloucester Counties in New Jersey and included a special promo.

While the ad will be running for our local Roo Girls on ABC Family and MTV through the week before Thanksgiving, you can not watch the ad right here! Check it out:

We hope you love it, and that it inspires you to find your perfect Homecoming dress for your upcoming back to school dance!

Kendall and Kylie Jenner Looking GLAM at the 2014 VMAs!

Kendall and Kylie Jenner are fashionistas to the core, especially since they are both models! So, it’s no surprise when they ALWAYS rock the red carpet in perfect style. Most recently, they were at the 2014 Video Music Awards, and both looked so glamorous in black on the VMAs red carpet. Check out what they wore below and how you can rock the looks at Homecoming or Prom!

kendall Jenner at the 2014 VMAs

Kendall Jenner looked model perfect in her black illusion jumper. The jumper fit her so perfectly, showing off her curves while giving her such a classy (and classic) look.

Shail K 3494 jumper

To get Kendall’s black jumper look, go with Shail K. style 3494. This sleeveless, full length jumper has a deep V neck and an accentuated waist for a sexy, but classy look, just like Kendall’s.

Kylie Jenner at the 2014 VMAs

Kylie rocked a sexy silky black gown at the 2014 VMAs. The deep v-neck and high slight on the dress gave her such a sultry look that we absolutely loved!

For Kylie’s sultry black look, there are two dresses that we love:

Mac Duggal 61681R

For a long sleeve look like Kylie’s, go with Mac Duggal style 61681R. The sweetheart neckline is cupped and color-matched sequins are embellished throughout the short dress. A matching and form-fitting long jacket goes perfectly with this dress. Its soft, satin exterior and long sleeves make the perfect addition to this glamorous look.

Jonathan Kayne 490

For a sultry short sleeve black gown, go with Jonathan Kayne style 490. Hematite crystals and beads adorn the sculpted cap sleeves and flattering belt of this soft, yet stretchy satin faced jersey gown. The simple elegance of this silhouette keeps it timless and perfect for any formal event.

Did you love the Jenner Sisters’ VMAs looks as much as we did? Leave us a comment below and let us know your thoughts!
