Dresses

Oh dear Self-Portrait, how can you make even the most of demure dresses still make look so unbelievably feminine and sensual? Case in point: the collared “Felicia” two-tone dress pictured below. The basic design of this frock is actually pretty prudish, but the short length and Self-Portrait’s signature delicate lace save this dress from being plain boring and forgettable. Now if you have the shopping budget to afford this lovely lace dress and shell out the needed $371 (we’re already talking sale price here!), by all means, go for it and get the real deal. However, if you’d rather have a look at the available budget-friendly alternatives, just keep on reading…

Aqua Color Block Lace Dress

Enter Aqua. They ditched the Peter Pan collar, but kept most of the other key details in place and hence offer a great Self-Portrait alternative for less than $50 (sale price!). Steal deal alert!

So I’ve already gushed in detail about the gorgeousness that is Dolce & Gabbana‘s S/S 2015 collection, but what I haven’t gushed about yet is this gorgeous floral embroidered body-con dress by House of CB which I discovered about an hour ago. I immediately had to drop everything, so I could write this blog post and share my beautiful (and budget-friendly) find with you, that’s just how excited I was about having come across this dress. House of CB has done quite the heavy copycat math on this one; somehow they managed to turn a $14.500 dress and a $7.500 skirt into a smokin’ hot $214 dress. Now that’s what I call a serious steal deal! Get this beauty of a dress before it sells out (and if you dare to wear such a racy look). Rock this frock with a bold red lip, sleek ponytail and dramatic eyeliner (hi there, Kendall!) and you’ll be the perfect Dolce & Gabbana femme fatale on a budget!

Summer is in full swing and breezy summer dresses are the way to dress in this heat. And just how breezy is this lovely, delicate little white dress by Chloé? Sure, you’d have to tape it to your breasts if you want to avoid “wardrobe malfunctions”, but once everything is safely kept in its place, I think this dress would look fantastic on vacations, beach days and summer garden parties. Just look at how gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looks wearing this beautiful dress (OK, Rosie would look good in anything, but still). Too bad it costs almost $2.800 which makes it absolutely unattainable for most of us fashion lovers!

Selfie Leslie “Dreamer” Skater Dress

Update (07/19/2016): Found another lovely Chloé inspired dress alternative today which is by Selfie Leslie and is less risqué than the designer original and less calling for a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. Check out the “Dreamer” dress, it’s such a cute summer dress, don’t you agree? The Selfie Leslie dress has roughly the same overall design but can be yours for $55.

Le Salty Label x REVOLVE Mini Dress

Luckily, there’s a fantastic look for less alternative available by Le Salty Label for a much lower price of $128. Their LWD (which is also available in black) is shorter and has slightly less intricate detailing than the Chloé original, but the resemblance between both dresses is still very visible. And just in case you’re not a fan of the short length, this dress also comes in a lovely maxi dress version. Make sure to check out Le Salty Label’s whole collection because it’s absolutely fabulous and just perfect for summer!

Summer has officially started, so let’s talk summer dresses for a moment. Thanks to Self-Portrait, delicate guipure lace dresses have officially taken over this season’s must-have dress trends. And while the Azaelea dress by Self-Portrait is by far the most popular style from the brand, there are so many more beautiful dresses worth taking a look at. Take this lilac mini dress for example, it’s the perfect combination of feminine and sexy. Plus, how gorgeous is the pastel lavender color? Such a sweet summer dress. Unfortunately, it’s also very expensive. And sold out. Bummer!

Aqua Lace Illusion Mini Dress

Luckily, we’ve come across this just as lovely lace mini dress by Aqua which serves as a great look for less Self-Portrait alternative. The design is spot-on, but the Aqua dress costs about 1/5 of the real deal. Available in black or lilac blue.
