Gal Meets Glam Dress Blanche for Fall

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite new fall dresses, the Gal Meets Glam Blanche dress. Aren’t the plaid and the bow just darling? I love all the details, from the cuffs at the end of the sleeves to the pockets to the thick plaid fabric. And did I mention the bow?

The dress fits true to size. It is fitted around the waist, and the skirt doesn’t flair out as much as some of the other Gal Meets Glam dresses. The buttons on the front are faux, so you don’t have to worry about any gaping either. The fabric is quite thick, so even though it’s a dress I think you would be warm during a fall night, especially if you wore it with tights.

I couldn’t resist pairing the bow on the Gal Meets Glam dress with the bow on my Lisi Lerch Charlotte Black Snaffle bag. I love this bag so much. I’ve had my eye on it ever since Carly wore it a few seasons ago, and it’s always been sold out. Lisi Lerch recently re-released it and I pounced. No buyer’s remorse here! It fits everything I need it to, goes with everything, and is so darn cute. I really love that the black bow makes it appropriate for winter pairings, and the basket weave make it perfect for summer.

How to Wear Balloon Sleeves

Balloon Sleeve Dress

One of fall’s biggest trends is balloon sleeves. I have seen them on dresses, sweaters, t-shirts, even sweatshirts. I love the drama they add to the otherwise basic jeans and a sweater. They are also a lot easier to pull off then other dramatic sleeves, like tulip sleeves, and they don’t get in the way as much. I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I wear a ruffle sleeve I start to feel like a duster…

Balloon Sleeve Dress

I found this gorgeous green balloon sleeve dress at Anthropologie. It’s part of their Velvet by Graham & Spencer collaboration and I love it. It’s a thick cotton material, so it’s heavy enough for the fall but not too hot. The seam in the front adds shape to the dress so it feels rather fitted, and the v-neck is the perfect combination of low but not too low. I think the dress is relatively true to size - I sized down but didn’t feel like there was any significant difference between the S and the M. Finally, I like that the balloon sleeves add drama to the outfit without being at all over the top.

I paired it with a scarf around my neck. These Anthropologie diamond scarves are so nice! They are under $20 and the prints on all of them are gorgeous. I also wore these rose gold pansy earrings (currently on sale). I’ve been really drawn to a vintage ascetic lately, and I think both the scarf and the earrings have a vintage charm while still being modern.
