Last week I was able to attend the Gal Meets Glam Collection launch party here in Dallas. The event was held at the NorthPark Nordstrom. White drapes, flowers, pretty dresses, and tons of girls who look up to Julia just like I do. It was a wonderful night.
I arrived early and had time to find a mirror and look around a little before we were able to take our seats. Champagne was served while we waited for Julia's grand entrance. The first part of the evening included a Q&A with Julia. After the Q&A session pictures began. Everyone was able to take their picture with Julia and her husband Thomas. Which meant you had the opportunity to introduce yourself and congratulate her on the new line of dresses. I was nervous. I've never been the most bold person in the room, or the most talkative. I remember saying hello and honestly I couldn't tell you what was said after that. I don't think I've ever met anyone who I consider famous before this night. It was so incredibly cool! After pictures and hugs, I made my way to the flower cart and then stood in line for a fashion illustrator live drawing. Rongrong DeVoe was so sweet and looked adorable in her white Gal Meets Glam collection dress.
After the live drawing I made my way back to the car, called my Mom and then my boyfriend to tell them all about it. I left with the mindset that anything is possible. I couldn't ask for a better night.
