Can we go back to the 1950’s? What a time it was when women would wear a dress everywhere. Stepping out for groceries, going to work, date night at the drive-in movie theatre, holidays in Hawaii, even when they were cooking at home they would most likely be wearing a dress, heck I bet they even slept in dresses. I love the thought of women always dressed to impress. Waking up every morning and grabbing a freshly pressed dress from their wardrobe. What a start to the day. Whatever happened to this way of life? Fashion has changed so dramatically, sometimes not in a good way. That is why I love to see vintage styles and feminine silhouettes coming back to life.
With the launch of the Gal Meets Glam Collection, it is even more possible to pretend to live in the 1950’s. I feel more inspired to wear dresses every day because there are so many beautiful dresses with every new release. Which means I need a new day job that doesn’t have a strict dress code. Gal Meets Glam is launching new dresses every month and I can’t help but be obsessed with all of them. I have said before that these dresses fulfill all of my closet dreams. I mean look at this gorgeous blue maxi dress. I have never seen a dress in such a vibrant blue. There is so much meticulous thought put into every detail. The white pinstripes, little ruffles, and matching buttons every little detail completes the dress to make it look like it was made in another time.
While I was visiting Maui I found a road lined with the most beautiful blue flowers that matched this dress perfectly. One of the biggest reasons I love Hawaii is because there are always flowers blooming, no matter what time of year you visit there is bound to be a pop of color somewhere. But I have never seen this many flowers blooming in one spot. I was lucky that I was prepared with the perfect blue Gal Meets Glam dress to match these magnificent blooms. It is always such an amazing feeling when you are traveling you happen to find yourself in the right place at the right time. These special discoveries like a road lined with blue flowers are once in a lifetime, I hold little moments like this close to my heart.
When vacationing in Hawaii I find it to be the perfect excuse to dress up in beautiful resort wear and beach-ready styles that are both modest and classic. I always pack outfits that fit the mood and the vibe of where I am going. Although many vacationers dress casually in bikinis and cut off shorts I am always driven to go for a more upscale look that has me ready to try new food and see new things. When I wear a bold dress I tend to feel like doing bold things. And when your traveling you always need to be up for anything. Don’t be afraid to get a little dressed up, you might be amazed at how confident and free you feel when you put on a nice dress. I always feel like I can conquer the world.
