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.
