It's become common practice for big musicians like Ariana Grande and Beyonce to suddenly drop new songs (and sometimes whole new albums!) on social media. They give no warning. They give no hype. One day, suddenly, the new songs or album are just there for all ears to hear. Who needs hype, anyway, when you're as big as Ariana and Beyonce? Get ready, because Ariana Grande recently did just that, surprising fans from across the world.
On Tuesday, August 2nd, the gal with the most perfect ponytail ever simply posted, "love you" on Twitter. With that message was a link to her Soundcloud page. Because, what else do you need to say when you're Ariana Grande?
If you've ever watched the show Six in the City, you know it's full of some very talented girls. No, we don't mean Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha, Charlotte, and Maranda from Sex and the City. Six in the City is its own TV series. It's a reality TV show, to be exact, about six girls who lead normal lives at home, but also have amazing modeling and acting careers in NYC. What sounds special about that, you ask? These girls are all just kids!
One of the girls that stars in the show is Kendall Beaulieu, an 8 year old model and actress. If you've ever checked out her Facebook page, you'll know that she not only loves being in the city, but also enjoys spending time with her BFF, dancing, and playing soccer.
Kendall's an eight year old gal on the move. Not only is she a big model and actress in NYC, but she recently got to attend the 2016 Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles, CA this past Sunday, July 31st. While we love watching the award ceremonies, of course the first thing on our mind is always the red carpet looks. So, what could you imagine that Kendall wore on the famous blue carpet? A dress from Rissy Roo's, of course!
Since Kendall and her family live on the East Coast, close to our store in Linwood, New Jersey, her and her mom, Korrie, stopped by to pick out a dress for her big event. Being the 8 year old that she is, she instantly gravitated to the Lexi by Mon Cheri collection, dresses that designer Mon Cheri specifically created for girls that are Kendall's age! The Six in the City star picked out the pretty two-piece dress Lexi by Mon Cheri TW11663. It's a sleeveless ombre number that features a hand-beaded satin cropped top. Continue reading →
While the presidential election season has been heated, Mars decided to have a little fun and cast a 2016 election of their own. M&M's fans had from March 1st through June 17th this year to vote for which of four peanut flavor ideas they'd like to see in stores: Chili Nut, Honey Nut, Coffee Nut, and Original Nut (some might call it the OG!). M&M's said that the four nut flavors "are going head-to-head" in a consumer promotion to determine America's Favorite Peanut.
The polls are in, the people have spoken, and the nut of choice is Coffee Nut (of course, OG Nut won't be going anywhere, though)! We're thinking some huge Starbucks fans may have been swaying the polls on this one. The new flavor will be in stores in August, so keep a look-out for it.
The announcement of the winner was made this past Monday, July 25th, on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram in a pretty silly video featuring actor Tony Hale talking to his BFF, Yellow M&M.
The big question that it seems like we'll just have to wait until August for is whether or not the new Coffee Nut M&M's will include many people's favorite part about coffee... the caffeine! A little chocolate.. a little caffeine... could make for a nice afternoon snack, rather than stopping by Starbucks to pick up that frapp. Then again, with October just around the corner, who could say no to a Pumpkin Spice Latte? So, maybe it's not so much about one or the other, but eating Coffee Nut M&M's while drinking Starbucks! This fall's looking pretty promising already...
Ninety's fashion has made a huge comeback this year, seeing celebs like Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid rocking those ever famous 90s style chokers and goth inspired looks. We certainly can't complain, especially since the 1990s seem to be making a comeback in a huge way well beyond fashion. Just yesterday, sequels to 1990s popular movies The Blair Witch Project and Trainspotting were announced, and one of our all-time favorite actresses who we've been waiting patiently to take over the spotlight once again has done just that: Winona Ryder! The popular 1990s actress who was famous for Tim Burton movies like Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice, as well as Girl, Interrupted, is finally back in the limelight in a big way in Netflix's newest sci-fi series Stranger Things.
With the comeback of both Winona and 90s fashion, we wanted to give a fashion flashback to some of the formal outfits that made Winona that 1990s fashion icon she's become known for. After all, as Vice noted in their article "The Timeless Appeal of Winona Ryder, Hollywood's Eternal Outsider," Winona was "the cult face of the 90s." See four of our favorite outfits below, and of course how you can take a cue from them for a perfect fall Homecoming look.
Winona wore that classic goth look in a totally elegant way, wearing a black v-neck dress, a worn-in leather jacket, black hair, and dark red lips. Of course, you can never go wrong with Johnny Depp on your shoulder! In this picture, Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp were at the NATO/ShowWest Convention in Las Vegas, NV in February of 1990.

Summer and fall months mean that wedding season is on! It's time to get ready for lots of touching ceremonies, fun parties, and dressing up, of course. The type of wedding it is will depending on what outfit you choose, but don't worry: we've got a whole bunch to pick from in our brand new Wedding Guest Dresses category. Whether more casual or black tie, there are plenty of gorgeous looks to fall in love with.
It's hard to pick a place to start, but we're here to give you a run-down of some of our favorite wedding guest dresses. Of course, we have to start off with one of our favorite new fall looks, the black floral dress above, Sherri Hill 50776. This dress features a plunging v-neckline with a sheer mesh panel for modesty, and the a-line skirt is adorned in one of Sherri Hill's signature floral prints that can only be fount on an authentic Sherri Hill dress.
Prom 2016 may be long over, but we still have it on our mind because we're still obsessing over all of the gorgeous prom pictures our customers have been sending our way! One of the latest in prom dress testimonials comes from Noelle Dadon and her mom, Yvette. Noelle attend her prom in early June. Yvette posted the picture on Facebook, and Noelle left us such a nice testimonial on our website. Check out Noelle's gorgeous prom picture below, as well as what both her and her mom had to say about her prom dress.
Yvette first posted Noelle's picture on our Facebook page, saying:
"My daughter Noelle in her gorgeous Blush prom gown on 6/2/16. It was absolutely perfect! The earrings were perfect, too. She got so many compliments! Thank you Rissy Roo's for making this special occasion a magical one. <3"
It's summer time and that means that because of that gorgeous tan you got (which you acquired while wearing sunscreen, of course), you can take it easy on the makeup and still get that natural sunkissed look you love. For the next few months, those perfect rosy red cheeks you always try to mimic with makeup is au naturale! That means less time prepping and putting together that perfect look, and more time doing the things you love.
But, just because you can take it easy on the makeup (of course, there is never anything wrong forgoing makeup altogether), doesn't mean you won't want to do some basic maintenance. YouTube star Carli Bybel (she calls her channel The Beauty Bybel!) recently put together a quick and easy summer makeup tutorial that we're loving. The goal was to put together an every day summer makeup look in under 10 minutes, and she did exactly that - she timed it to be about 9 minutes and 45 seconds, to be exact. Check out the video below!
Not only is this look quick and easy, but it's also affordable! As she mentioned in her video, all of the products she used can be purchased as your local drug store, and she listed all of the products mentioned (in order) on her blog.
Whether going shopping for the day or having a night out with your BFFs, this is a perfect look for any time of day or event. Like Carli mentioned, it's a lightweight, pretty makeup look, which is exactly what you want for the summertime. And, even though Carli specifically made this video for a summertime makeup idea, it's a classic look that uses more natural colors that can be worn during any season. So, after the summer is over, you may want to consider testing it out for your homecoming dance!
Nikki Librizzi showed off in two gorgeous Rissy Roo's dresses over the past few months, and we're obsessing just a little (or a lot). She attended her prom back in May, and in June she competed in the America's National Teenager Scholarship Organization (ANTSO) Pageant and walked away with a crown! Of course, she dressed in style in Sherri Hill dresses for both events. Read on to see what she wore to her prom and pageant and what title she won at the ANTSO pageant.

For prom, Nikki chose Sherri Hill 50157, a gorgeous two piece gown. This spectacular creation features a dazzling jeweled illusion crop to with an open back and a fitted jersey skirt with matching beadwork along the waistline. The dress also features a front slit to show off just the right amount of leg. Continue reading →
