Over the weekend we went to our friends' wedding, and I wore the new Gal Meets Glam Marilyn dress. This dress is so beautiful. The fabric, the cut, the drape, the color, Julia did a wonderful job with every aspect of it. I love the dress's vintage charm. Honestly, I felt like a pretty pretty princess in it all night (did anyone else love that game as a kid? It was my favorite!)
The fit of the Gal Meets Glam Marilyn dress is true to size. If you are in between sizes, like I was, I recommend sizing up. It is not the kind of silhouette that you want to be tight. In addition, the sash allows for you to slightly adjust the fit, so if it is a tad loose it won't look it. The dress is also lined, and is not remotely see through.
The color photographs true to life. It is a beautiful blue with a slightly gray tint, I think of it as Cinderella blue. The fabric is somewhat heavy, so it drapes very nicely and shwooshed while we danced. In addition the bow stayed tied, and the dress did not wrinkle at all throughout the evening.
I styled the dress with my favorite low heel and a small black clutch (old, similar), along with pearl stud earrings. For my hair, I decided to keep with the vintage vibe and made loose curls with my new curl wand. I really love this wand, and can't wait to do a full tutorial for you guys!
I love this dress, and can't wait to see what other pieces Julia comes out with for the May launch. Seeing her new creations every month is going to be such a treat.
Have any of you seen the dresses in person? What's your favorite?
