Over the last few weeks, we’ve posted recaps of our New York City coat launch celebration and our pajama party. Last, but certainly not least, we’d love to share a few photos and memories from our final event: a dinner party at the Lotte New York Palace! We wanted to wrap up our time in NYC in style, debuting dresses from our new Holiday Collection in an equally glamorous setting. The Madison Room’s ornate architecture and sparkling chandeliers set the stage perfectly, while Christy Doramus of @christysgarden once again brought our vision to life through incredible florals and thoughtful decor.
After saying goodbye to over 100 friends of the brand who joined us at our coat and holiday dress preview in our suite, we slipped into our favorite styles from the Holiday Collection and headed downstairs to the Madison Room. Christy set a stunning 17-foot table with details that celebrated Gal Meets Glam Collection and nodded to the sparkling holiday season ahead. A few of our favorites included the rose gold foil menus, napkins embroidered with our logo, satin bows that doubled as place cards, and a fabulous collection of vintage china at each place setting. The lights were dimmed and the candles were lit, making the whole room glow in what seemed like the perfect shade of GMGC blush!

As thrilling as it was to see such a beautiful space, my favorite part of the evening was seeing everyone looking gorgeous in new Gal Meets Glam Collection pieces. I wore the Diana, an allover silver sequin dress with ribbon sleeves–one of our signature details. (We created a coordinating cropped jacket, and while I didn’t wear it this particular evening, don’t miss it if you love this style.) Caralyn went the sequin route too, choosing one of our most fun holiday looks: the Casey cropped jumpsuit in sugar plum sequins. My sister, Lauren, who looks incredible in green (she even wore a green wedding dress!) opted for Georgette, a fabulous maxi with a touch of subtle sparkle. Two other ladies who opted for festive green dresses were Melanie, who styled our Jennifer dress in its new emerald colorway, and Robin of Verry Robin & Co., who put her own spin on Georgette with statement accessories. Every woman wore their Gal Meets Glam Collection pieces in unique ways, and as always, I was so inspired simply looking around the room and seeing their confidence radiate.
