Fabric of The Season!

Today Gal Meets Glam Collection is launching its second set of October dresses and separates and I’ve been dying to show you this one!

As soon as I saw the preview earlier this month I knew the “Nell” tweed skirt and jacket had my name written all over them. I fell in love with the cut, color, and fabric instantly. It also didn’t hurt that we had just started re-watching Mad Men.  This style had be in the forefront of my mind because I was smitten it as soon as I saw it.

About The Fit

In regards to a fit, all of my Gal Meets Glam dresses ( see here, here, & here) have fit like a dream and true to size. They are each lined so they’re never itchy or see-through and the fabric is always really lovely. I’ve been so impressed with the quality of these pieces from the get-go. I’m an avid tailor-er and get most of my things hemmed and tucked, but I haven’t gotten any of my GMG pieces tailored, they just fit. Plus the price point is fabulous for a special occasion dress, most of them being under $200.

STYLING TWEED SEPARATES

I actually don’t own anything quite like this. Sure, I have plenty of skirts and jackets, but never a matching set. One of the things I love most is the way it can be broken apart to create different looks, unlike a dress! It’s like a three in one!

Below are a couple of ways I’ll be styling my tweed separates this season to keep them looking fresh! From jeans to silk blouses, I can’t wait to twirl around in different variations of these pieces for the next few months.
