If you’ve spent time scrolling through the gorgeous pages of Gal Meets Glam, then you know that its creator Julia H. Engel has a knack for styling feminine prints, pastels, and ladylike silhouettes all with every day ease. That’s what she’s known for and exactly what she brings to her Spring collaboration with direct-to-consumer footwear brand Margaux. For the second collection the two brands co-produced, you can expect even more of Julia’s signature style infused with the comfort of Margaux’s expertly crafted shoes. In fact, this collaboration gives birth to two new and notable silhouettes for the Margaux brand, the espadrille and the mule — both favorites of Julia’s, and the kind of footwear you’ll find her wearing in her daily outfit posts.
Ahead of the collaboration’s debut, we jumped on a quick call with Julia to uncover her favorite pieces, how her life in Charleston inspired this lineup, and the shoes she swears by for her busy life on-the-go. Ever the styling wiz, Julia comes through with practical ways to work the new designs into your own wardrobe and the shoe she’d recommend to any 20-something looking to build their wardrobe.
Read on for our conversation and a sneak peek of all three styles (all priced under $200), then shop the collection when it hits Margaux online Sunday, March 8.
