Lilacs and Violets

retrospec'd norma jean sweet violet dress

There are a few reasons I'm so excited to finally share these photos today: 1) I'm obsessed with this Retrospec'd dress 2) these photos capture my favorite time of year (lilac time!) and 3) I got the chance to shoot with my friend Emma, whose photos I've included among my own. Not only is Emma a great photographer, but she's become a dear friend since she was hired as one of our content writers. She's truly wonderful to work with and I can't wait to do more with her this summer. Be sure to check out the Emma Rizzo Photo website for more of her work!

It's official: I have a new favorite retro reproduction brand. Retrospec'd has some of the highest quality dresses I've seen in a long time, and their prints are to die for. I actually received this dress as a Christmas present from my mom, but I decided to save it for the spring. It's quickly become one of my favorite dresses and now I'm on a mission to get my hands on as much Retrospec'd as possible!

  1. Oh it's SO fun to have a friend snap some photos for you, isn't it? I love taking my own but sometimes, it's just a nice change and can be a bit more productive as you can focus on posing and not worry about the camera! I love that anyway!

    I am starting to really love Retrospec'd - they make SUCH good quality items!! This dress is lovely! I might have audibly gasped when I opened this post!! Great pick and yay for getting it for Christmas! Score!!

  2. Yes Retrospec'd is one of my favorite brands, they do have some gorgeous prints and dress styles for sure!
    I really love this dress, the lilac print is so beautiful! xo
