You most probably have heard about Julia Engel and her blog Gal Meets Glam. About a year ago she started her own brand Gal Meets Glam Collection with new dresses launching every month. Dresses which embody delicate femininity the way not many brands do. As a dress lover, I have been eyeing them for some time. However, it wasn’t until the current Resort 2019 that I had my first Gal Meets Glam Collection dress.
I’ll tell you the truth. It wasn’t an easy decision. I ended up picking the Clarissa dress because it felt very appropriate for the transitional season, and I believe embodies all that the GMG Collection is. But I also loved the Kathleen dress, and my absolutely favorite was the Dawn dress. But yet, I picked the Clarissa as it can also turn into a light coat, and feels very elegant & timeless. Plus, it turned out to be of great quality, by the way! I’m very pleased with my Gal Meets Glam Collection dress, as the fabric feels solid, and one can easily spot that attention to detail has been given.
However, my challenge was to find the perfect size. Being used to EU, UK & IT sizings, I felt confused about picking mine. US2 & US4 were both referring to S, so I decided to get US4. It did turn out to be a little bit loose, so I imagine size US2 would have been a better a pick. Writing this as a note for next time, and sharing in case you want to order yourself a dress, because different sizing standards might be confusing sometimes. And although I might be visiting the tailor for some extra fitting, I’m still very happy, because the dress has a wonderful line which flatters the body either way.
