Gal Meets Glam

Founder of the popular blog Gal Meets Glam, Julia Engel has always had a penchant for dresses - so much so that, to the delight of fashionistas and followers, she was inspired to launch her own exclusive collection. From soft pastel hues to fun florals to playful bows, her designs are decidedly, unabashedly femme. The fit-and-flared silhouettes are inspired by the styles of the 1940s and '50s, lending a timeless sophistication - and a touch of vintage-inspired chic - to each occasion-ready piece.

With the belief that "when a woman smiles, her dress must smile with her," French couturier Madeline Vionnet created garments to accentuate a woman's natural shape - her most iconic design being the bias cut. This artful technique required the fabric to be cut at a 45-degree angle, allowing it to softly drape and curve in the most flattering of ways. Here, the classic silhouette transforms this silky slip dress into a feminine piece that feels au courant. Viscose, silk This silky tee is a quintessential layering option for any closet. Tuck it into a skirt, wear it under a blazer, or even throw a corset belt on top - it looks effortlessly cool no matter how you style it.
