Wardrobe Wednesday | Virginia Dare Dress Co.


You GUYS! Today’s post is a very special one. My darling colleague, kindred friend, and my very own wedding photographer (who has also done countless portraits of me including this dream bridal session and my maternity photos) is launching her own dress company and I could not be more thrilled. After years of dreaming up the idea, sketching and re-sketching and self-teaching “how to start a dress company” Rebekah Murray has created Virginia Dare Dress Co. – elegant, comfortable, everyday dresses for adventuring, mothering, photographing, and in-general all-purpose wear. And they all have pockets!

Here is an introduction video to the dream + dresses!


Not only do I LOVE the designs, but you know my love for supporting small businesses and companies that have a generous, kind-hearted soul behind them. For ALL these reasons, I’m just so stoked to shout from the rooftops about this new venture and invite any and everyone to be part of making this dream come to fruition! If you’re not sure how Kickstarter works, please watch this video for the how-to and FAQ’s.

So, so exciting, right?? Head over to the Kickstarter and pre-order your very own gorgeous dress – or choose from a couple different options to support this amazing venture even if you’re not in the market for a new dress just yet. It will be so cool to say we all helped this amazing company start at it’s very beginnings! Please share with any other ladies in your life that might be on the lookout for that perfect but seemingly impossible-to-find dress….because they now exist, and are just begging to be made. :)

Here’s to everyday style, brilliant friends, and dreams come to life!
