The Esme Dress

I know! Two Gal Meets Glam dresses in one week! Honestly? I can’t get enough. It’s only a matter of time before my entire closet is GMG, and I’m totally okay with it. I keep saying this, but every dress seems to be better than the last. (And the bar was already set pretty high from the start.)

I got a sneak peek at this dress when I was down in Charleston and immediately put it on my “wish list.” Red is one of my favorite colors to wear– I think it looks good with my dark hair and fair skin.

Everything about this dress spoke to me, even though it’s not something I feel like I’d naturally gravitate towards. It fits like a dream though and every detail is simply perfection from the print to the pockets.

The dress actually dresses down pretty easily. Even though the print looks a little dressier, I wore it with a denim jacket and slides and it looked just as cute. These espadrilles almost seem made for the dress too. If you need a pair, I highly recommend these. I’ve worn them for years and they look just as good as the day I bought them. I do recommend sizing down a 1/2 size because they stretch out a tiny bit as you break them in. I usually wear a 7 and got these in a 6.5.

I love that shade of red lipstick! What kind is it? I struggle to find one that doesn’t look too orange-y or pink on me!


It’s definitely Nars, but I can’t remember the exact shade. If you send me an email, I can look it up when I get home!

This dress looks like it was made perfectly for you! I love the pattern and colors of it. I’ve had a few GMG dresses on my wish list that I plan to purchase soon!

SUCH a beautiful dress! She is just killing it. I love everything about this dress. It seems like you can wear it to a variety of events.
Also loved seeing you in something besides navy! I get stuck on navy myself, so this was inspiring!


I love all of the GMG dresses you’ve been sharing! So cool to see how supportive you are of a good friend, and for good reason since they are gorgeous and clearly thoughtfully designed.

Any chance of a discount code for one or more of these dresses that you’ve shared? Though I love the designs, the dresses are a bit out of my price range. Understand if it’s not doable, but I thought I’d put it out there just in case 😉
