It’s a new week and at look at another gorgeous dress.

If you haven’t been following along here on A Lily Love Affair lately, then you may have missed our new obsession, the Gal Meets Glam dress collection.

Last week we featured the Ava floral dress, a stunning number I recently wore to a weeding for a close friend.  It’s a lovely fit and flare number that is perfect for celebrations this season.  Bonus, the Ava dress is now 40% off! 

Over the next several weeks, it our goal to share with you all a number of looks with you all that are versatile for every day as much as they are for your upcoming celebrations.  Starting with the Gal Meets Glam Celeste dress.

Before I purchase a dress or skirt, I typically ask myself three questions:

Can I wear the dress or skirt to the office? 

Can I style for day and night? 

Will I pull it from my closet next season, too?

The Gal Meets Glam Celeste dress is one of the more versatile dresses you can add to our collection this season.  Today, I wanted to give the dress a holiday party feel by adding sparkle and whimsy.  At the bottom of the post, I am giving you a peek into a look we will share on the blog later this week where we style it for the office or weekend.

Let’s talk details.

First, this gorgeous number has the long sleeves which makes it so fitting for the cooler temperatures ahead.  I also adore the pleated sleeve detail which gives it a little ‘lift’ and added personality.  The fit and flare style fit so well and made the dress all that more comfortable for a night on the town.

For reference, I am 5’0 tall ad the regular fit 0 fit well.  I could have afforded to get the size 2 as well and would still have enjoyed the fit.  The dress was more fitted than most other dresses I own, but still comfortable.

As you can see, I added a belt to both looks, but it’s not necessary at all.  It’s a stunning piece without it.  For today’s more formal look, I wanted to tie in more ‘bling’ to really bring in the details from the shoes.

Speaking of the shoes, I am SO SO excited to share with you another look at the Fall/Winter Bella Belle Shoe collection.  Did you catch the gold bow heels in last week’s post?  They are seriously to die for!

I have been getting so many messages from you all about how much you love the Bella Belle collection.  I am so thrilled you love them as much as me.  There are so many reasons to love their pieces.

When I was first introduced to Bella Belle Shoes, I must have spent no less than an hour on their site trying to determine which pair of shoes were my favorites.  It seemed almost impossible to choose just one pair.  So, naturally, I didn’t.  🙂

The Florence Luxury heels are the perfect marriage of sexy and sophistication.  It’s also worth mentioning, I wore these and the gold bow heels to two weddings this last month.  I was able to be on my feet comfortably for several hours without any issues.  Stylish and comfort?  I’ll take it.

For all my brides out there, definitely check out Bella Belle online.  Their styles are not only stunning for brides, but for everyone else in your party as well.  Many of the heel styles also come in a gorgeous flat, also!

How would you style the Gal Meets Glam Celeste Dress this season?

They are so versatile and I heard the holiday collection is really stunning. Can’t wait to get my hands on them! 🙂 Hope I get to see you soon! XOXO
