Some of the most popular Gal Meets Glam Collection dresses of all time have been classic, solid-colored pieces that dress up or down effortlessly. For example, the Edith dress from our very first launch remains a staple at Nordstrom, while almost no style has flown off the shelves as quickly as our Celeste dress when it came out last September (we’ve since brought it back in navy and black!). As I hope you’ve seen, we launched our July styles yesterday, including the brand new Gal Meets Glam Collection Kate dress. This style is almost a cross between the Edith and Celeste, with the former’s v-neckline and short sleeves and the latter’s comfortable crepe material and skirt seam. It’s available in three versatile colors–retro blue, cream, and rosetta–and when half of the women on our team added Kate to their own closets, I knew I had to ask them to help me showcase its versatility!
Annika: Product Sourcing/Styling Associate
Since Annika is constantly hunting down the most unique, beautiful products for us to share on the blog or style in our Gal Meets Glam Collection shoots, it’s no surprise that her own closet is perfectly curated. Her style is classic and timeless, no doubt influenced by her Washington DC roots, but she isn’t afraid to have fun with accessories, like floral statement earrings. She often opts for low heels that add polish without too much additional height on work days—these nude scalloped block heels are one of her favorite pairs. Since she shares my affinity for feminine details and all things pink, the rosetta shade of the Kate dress was the perfect choice for her.
Colleen: Creative Associate, Photography
Colleen is one of the newest members of our team and we are so grateful to have her! Her days all look a little different, since some are spent at her desk editing images, while others are spent running around town scouting locations, capturing beautiful photos, or assisting with shoots. Her style is colorful and laid-back. Since she’s a photographer, pieces that are functional for her active days are key. She opted for the Kate dress in retro blue and paired it with espadrille sneakers and raffia hoop earrings (similar here) for a classic, but comfortable, look.
Margaret: Social Media/Influencer Relations Associate
Margaret was one of our first team members and finds inspiration in all forms of art (she is also a talented artist herself). She is forever drawn to beautiful prints and eclectic pairings. She wore the cream Kate dress with our Mary silk scarf, plus pale blue slingback heels to add a playful pop of color. She loves how the simple silhouette of the dress creates a flattering blank canvas that transitions perfectly from day to evening.
