Today I wanted to share this gorgeous dress I snagged from the Gal Meets Glam April collection. I have talked about Gal Meets Glam a few times before on the blog; and for good reason. In my opinion, they make the most gorgeous dresses I have ever seen. From the fabrics, cuts, designs, to the colors and every last dart and pleat- Julia Engel and her brand Gal Meets Glam do dresses like no one else. They make pieces that stand the test of time, and will hold a special place in your closet for years to come.
Now, this dress. I follow GMG founder Julia Engel on Instagram, and she showed a corner of a sample of this dress back in November. From what little I saw of the pink gingham, I knew I had to have it. And after months and months of waiting, this dress did not disappoint. In fact, it even surprised me with just how gorgeous it was. I am talking about the "Polly" dress! The fabric is lightweight and flowey, yet structured enough to hold its intricate pleating. Just walking around in this dress is such a fabulous feeling; the way the skirt flares and flows is such a treat! The cross back and the buttons make for the sweetest retro touch. And for my shorter gals, it is also available in petite!
I see myself wearing this casually with my hair up in a bow and Keds on my feet, and done up for a night out with heels. If you only add one dress to your closet this summer, I think it should be the Polly!
Anyone else a long time lover of Julia? Have you ever experienced the magic of a Gal Meets Glam dress? Let me know!
‘til next time,
