  • Every Day Summer Makeup in Under 10 Minutes

    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!

  • Roo Girl Nikki Librizzi Stunned In Sherri Hill At Her Prom And The ANTSO Pageant!

    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.

    Silk was a popular dress choice for the Tony's red carpet, seen on actresses Jessica Lange, Keltie Knight, and Saycon Sengbloh. We especially loved the tend on Jourdan Dunn, though, who rocked a champagne pink Zac Posen gown.

    For a similar champagne-colored silk look, go with Faviana 7755, one of our hottest sellers and perfect for any event from homecoming, to being a guest at a wedding, to a charity event, prom, or any other special occasion.  Continue reading

  • Faviana On The Red Carpet of the 2016 Tony Awards

    Our favorite dress designers can always be found on some of the most hotly anticipated red carpets, with the most recent sighting being Faviana on the 2016 Tony Awards red carpet. The 70th Annual Tony Awards was held on June 12, and Joelle Garguilo and Donna Karger were reporting straight from the red carpet to show off all of the hottest celebrity dresses. Of course, if they are reporting on celeb looks, they have to be dressed to impress, as well. So, the two reporters wowed the crowds themselves in Faviana dresses. Read on to see what they wore!

    Faviana Tony Awards

    New York Live's reporter and producer, Joelle Garguilo, looked sultry in Faviana 7755, one of our hottest sellers. The plunging v-neck on this faille satin dress ads the perfect amount of allure to an otherwise simplistic and classic design, making it so perfect for just about any occasion. Whether homecoming, guest of a wedding, a charity event, or the red carpet, this style is classic and classy. The front is draped, which adds texture to the full length skirt, a high slit reveals a tantalizing touch of skin, and the back is adorned with thin straps and ruching in a manner that provides a slimming effect, flattering the figure in all the right spots.

    You can see Joelle in action on the Tony's red carpet in the below video. She opened up her segment by mentioning that all eyes are on the musical Hamilton, but our eyes were on her in that gorgeous Faviana dress!  Continue reading

  • Our Miss New Jersey 2016 is Brenna Weick

    The Miss New Jersey 2016 Pageant was held this past weekend in our very own backyard, Ocean City, NJ. The pageant had the perfect backdrop on the Ocean City boardwalk in the Music Peir, and all of the contestants looked gorgeous.

    Ultimately, it all came down to one girl, and it was a very special girl this year, as she is no stranger to the Miss New Jersey pageant. Brenna Weick, of Mantua, Gloucester County, is our new Miss New Jersey 2016! After finishing as the runner-up twice and the second runner-up in the last three Miss New Jersey pageants, she was finally crowned Miss New Jersey herself. You can watch the special crowning moment in the video above.  Continue reading

  • Our Fifth 2016 Prom Princess: Kailey Gober

    It's finally down to only one 2016 Prom Princess spot left. It was such a hard choice - every single girl looked gorgeous in their prom dress, and we loved all of the testimonials! But, it ultimately came down to only being able to choose one more Prom Princess. So, without further adieu, we're excited to announce that our fifth and final Prom Princess is Kailey Gober!

    Sherri Hill 50333

    We are obsessed with her gorgeous prom look, in Sherri Hill 50333! The black dress with pink and red accenting couldn't be more stunning, and we love that her date matched the style of the dress with his suit and boutonniere. Floral perfection!

    When Kailey entered our Prom Queen Contest, she shared this message:

    "I can't thank Rissy Roo's enough for finding my perfect gown! I want Sherri Hill and no one in my area carries it! I wanted something totally different from everyone's strictly beaded gowns my school wears. My mom found Rissy Roo's online and emailed the store. Marissa helped her with two dresses and emailed when the one I wanted became available. The ordering was easy, shipping was fast, and the customer service was wonderful. I can't wait to shop for next year's prom! Thank you Rissy Roo's for making my prom perfect!"

    As a Prom Princess, Kailey won a $50 gift certificate to RissyRoos.com, and she'll also get to compete starting today in the final stage of our contest - to be crowned our 2016 Prom Queen! Everyone can vote for our Prom Queen on our Facebook page from 6/17 - 6/27. Just visit our "VOTE: 2016 Rissy Roo's Prom Queen Contest" Facebook Photo Album and get voting. The girl with the most "likes" and "loves" on their photo will be announced our Prom Queen on June 28, 2016 and will win a $100 gift certificate to RissyRoos.com!

    Thank you so much to all who entered our contest, and good luck to our Prom Princesses as they compete to wear our 2016 Prom Queen crown!

  • Deshauna Barber is Our Miss USA 2016!

    The Miss USA pageant is always fun to watch, as there are so many talented, beautiful women, all competing for the right to wear one crown. This year's competition was especially fierce, but it ultimately came down to two: Miss District of Columbia, Deshauna Barber, and Miss Hawaii, Chelsea Hardin. They were both asked difficult interview questions, and stunned all with their answers. It couldn't have been a closer call, but Miss District of Columbia, Deshauna Barber, is now reporting for duty as our new Miss USA 2016!


    Yup, that's right: she is reporting for duty because she is an Army Reserve officer, and showed just how much the army means to her in her response to her interview question. The 26-year-old from the nation's capital was asked by judge Joe Zee whether the Pentagon's decision to open up all combat roles to women had, "put political correctness over our military ability to perform." The 1st Lt. responded in style, saying, "As a woman in the United States Army, I think it was an amazing job by our government to allow women to integrate into every branch of the military."  Continue reading
