Summer is just around the corner while we’re barely soaking up the joys of this spring– namely–the new collection unveiled by Julia Engel of blogging sensation Gal Meets Glam.
The Gal Meets Glam Collection is the Charleston-based California blogger’s exclusive new venture for her internationally adored brand born from the perfect Cinderella blogging story. Since 2011 Julia has made her life a feast for the romantic eyes to her 1.2 million Instagram followers as she travels the world in exquisite charm and utterly classic feminine looks. It is no wonder that a professed dress lover, she took her dreams further in creating her first line of dresses for April, only the first in a series of collections to be released with each coming month. Originally working in marketing in San Francisco while continuing her college blog on the side, she and her husband, Thomas Berolzheimer, decided to pursue making GMG more than just a style blog. It is a life of pink-hued magnolias and bike rides to the sea, strolls around Charleston’s grand homes or even just capturing still life of the simplest and most beautiful picnics so effortlessly but beautifully arranged by Julia and team. If living a vintage life in today’s world could be captured in timeless photos, it would be that of the GMG lifestyle.
We can now inch closer into the beauty of Julia’s mind and vision with the release of her April collection. Closely inspired from real patterns bought by Julia herself and a lifetime spent binging classics like Sabrina or All About Eve, these dresses most definitely stand the test of time. Gingham to eyelet and flowy chiffon, the textures alone are classic and each style is paired with the name of each inspiring woman in Julia Engel’s life– namely the elegant Marilyn, named after her own grandmother, and Carly, of her fellow blogger bestie Carly Heitlinger fame, turning classic blue gingham into a slimming silhouette that teeters between preppy and playful.
Find a dress that best suits your style and character, and be excited to know that there is more yet to come from the exciting blogger who best captures the spirit of giving this modern life a uniquely vintage flair with fashion!
