Can you guys tell that I’m addicted to Gal Meets Glam dresses? I recently sent Julia a photo of the garment rack in my office (which doesn’t even include what’s in my actual closet) and it was 1/3 GMG dresses. Here’s the thing… they’re dresses that I LOVE. I think the fit is perfect, the details are gorgeous, and they’re also practical. (The pockets alone are a giant selling point!) I promise I’m not just saying this because she’s my friend! The obsession is real and my diminishing closet space proves it.
When she first launched her collection, I was gravitating towards all of the navys. But then I was like, “Carly, don’t get another navy dress. You have too many.” I’ve been branching out and, well, I like it. I’m usually not one to go outside my comfort zone in any part of my life… so any time I do something a little different it feels like a little victory!
Enter The Chloe. I would never have picked this dress for myself a year ago. It’s blush pink (which is basically my skin tone’s nude and can go wrong very, very quickly), it’s midi length, and the sleeves are slightly puffed. I would have never guessed that I could pull it off, let alone even try it on.
These photos are a few weeks old. (I am so behind in posting outfits… yikes.) I wore this dress to a luncheon at Laduree SoHo. It was in the “secret” garden which is becoming one of my favorite spots in all of NYC. If you haven’t been, I highly recommend it! It’s a little courtyard behind the restaurant where you can eat, have afternoon tea, chat with friends, grab a drink, etc. I felt like this dress fit in perfectly for the setting.
I wore heels to the actual luncheon but wore these pink flats for rest of the day to walk around. The heels instantly elevate the dress and the flats make it more casual. It’s great how versatile this dress is!
That print though. Despite being an overall pink dress, it totally translates into fall with the darker magenta and hunter green. I wish I had a pair of magenta heels honestly. I think they’d be perfect with this.
