Gal Meets Glam Nordstrom Event Chicago

This past week I had the pleasure to attend a Gal Meets Glam meet and greet with blogger Julia to help celebrate her dress line! If you saw my Gal Meets Glam Favorites + Launch Experience post you know all about my experience getting VIP access to this event. In case you missed it, the main gist is I almost got trampled to get a dress on release day for the opportunity to attend an exclusive event with Julia. Luckily, I survived the experience and had my golden ticket to the VIP meet and greet. 

I arrived early and got to wander around and take pictures in the roped off area before most of the guests arrived. They were passing out rose, prosecco and hors d'oeuvres. With my hands already full with my work bag and phone I opted to go drink-less. But, in case you were wondering they had some fancy food and even ice cubes with little flowers in them. Like damn, Nordstrom you bougie. 

Any who, the event was quite lovely and featured new Gal Meets Glam arrivals, fresh flowers, and live illustrations. We got to take home a little bouquet of flowers, which I was all over. Free peonies and you know I'm there. Plus there was illustrator doing illustrations of us in certain Gal Meets Glam dresses, so fun! 

I was obsessed with their little flower set-up! Can you just look at these adorable little Gal Meets Glam tags. The little tiny branded details were just gorgeous. 

The event was set up as a mix and mingle with Julia. There was about 30 people so we all made a huddle around Julia while she answered questions. She talked so much about what is coming to the Gal Meets Glam line, and I am so excited for what I think is in store! Darker colors are coming in for fall, including some little black dresses. In June we will see more neutrals, while July will be brighter colors. New prints, silhouettes, and even branching into more items (besides dresses) is in the near future as well! Not to mention the biggest piece of news PETITES IS COMING!!! I could write a whole book of struggles of a short gal trying to find a dress. So the idea of a petites line made me so excited! I won't bore you with my tales of a short girl and her struggle finding things to fit, but let's just say I am excited. 

Julia was so sweet and it was so interesting to hear about the future of her blog and her brand. 

The store was filled with so many new gorgeous dresses! Sadly, Nordstrom doesn't carry 00, which is my size. But, Julia mentioned that Nordstrom will now carry 00 because of the success of the size on her website. So, YAY! Finally can score dresses and get those Nordstrom points. 

Have you picked up any Gal Meets Glam dresses? Let me know your favorite in the comments!
