Self-Portrait. How could we have possibly missed out on covering this new and super coveted brand for so long? Sorry about that, folks. But before we head into showing you our best Self-Portrait steal finds, here are a few facts about the contemporary fashion label: it was founded in 2013 by Han Chong (also former creative director of Three Floor) and quickly gained red carpet and social media buzz shortly after, landing dress gigs with celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon and Miranda Kerr as well as personal style bloggers like Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad) and Kristina Bazan (Kayture). The signature aesthetic of the London-based brand are feminine, romantic dresses and separates with lots of lace, embroidery and sheer overlays which have a surprisingly appealing price point: Dresses typically fall in the $500-$600 price range. And while I honestly applaud Han Chong for wanting to create a mid-priced fashion label with lots of attention to detail, $480 is still a lot of money for a lot of people (even though I’ll admit the “Azaelea” dress pictured below looks like it’s worth every penny of it). Keep on reading to find various stylish Self-Portrait dress alternatives for much less.

Don’t wait, buy now, this dress will sell out once the word is out. By the way, while browsing I also spotted a lovely shortened Azaelea dress dupe at Charlotte Russe for $39.99 which comes in 4 colors and is also available in plus sizes!

Club Monaco “Bolari” Midi Lace Dress

Update (05/08/2016): Spotted another great Self-Portrait Azaelea look-alike today! It’s by Club Monaco, comes in either black or forest green and costs approx. half as much as the real deal ($269). Love the green version for redheads! What do you think?

Aqua Lace Cami Midi Dress

Update (04/29/2016): I think I just stumbled upon the best Self-Portrait Azaelea steal find yet! Check out this lovely $148 lace midi dress by Aqua which is available in either black or light blue and is $332 cheaper than the real deal. Shhhhhh, don’t tell anyone, but Aqua has also various other great Self-Portrait look-alikes available here (e.g. this dress or this one or this one).

bebe Cotton Eyelet Dress

Update (04/28/2016): Just spotted this Self-Portrait inspired summer dress at bebe. It has obviously some major differences (e.g. different pattern and length), but the bodice clearly gives away where the inspiration for this dress came from.

LuLu*s Pinnacle of Prestige Lace Midi Dress

If you can’t afford spending half a grand on a flirty summer dress, here’s our best steal find (yet!) which I discovered at LuLu*s some time ago. And I would’ve showed you this lovely $64 lace midi dress some time ago already, but it kept selling out so fast – restock after restock – that I didn’t even have enough time to finish up this blog post before this dress was completely sold out again, so I patiently waited until it got restocked for what feels like the tenth time now and for the first time it didn’t sell out in the first 60 minutes. Yay! However, this dress is obviously still wildly popular, so I wouldn’t wait too long with buying. Who knows if it’ll be restocked for an eleventh time?

H&M Lace Dress

Another gorgeous Self-Portrait Azaelea alternative is this lace midi dress by H&M. It’s currently only available in yellow (also comes in white now), but it does look lovely and so similar to the real deal, right? I know $129 seems oddly expensive for an H&M dress, but be rest assured, I actually ordered this dress myself and it is worth its money, the fit is flattering and the quality is good. So if you’re a fan of yellow summer dresses, this one is a great buy!

And of course, where there’s a trend Jessica Buurman can’t be too far away. The design of their “Adice” dress is very close to the real deal (including the colors), but I can’t tell for sure whether it’s worth paying over $100 for, especially since I found various other dresses from similar Asian merchants for much less (see links below).

Free People South Of The Equator Midi Dress

OK, now this Self-Portrait steal find kind of irritates me. Don’t get me wrong: I love Free People and I looooove designer dupes. But what I don’t understand is how you can blatantly copy a $480 dress and then sell your own copied version for a whopping $300, thus making both dresses compete in the same price range? Now that’s a little shameless, isn’t it? Even for blatant copycats. Anyway, I still wanted to include this dress option because it does look a lot like the real deal and it is in fact still $180 cheaper than the original, so if you’re OK with paying that much money for a copycat design, feel free to do so.

So, lace-up flats. You probably won’t get around them this summer. First, we started with Aquazzura’s pointy “Christy” flats and today we present you yet another gorgeously delicate example: “Leo” by Isabel Marant, an eyelet-embellished ballet flat with intricate lace-up design and scalloped edges for a soft and feminine look. It seems like high heels may have to take a summer vacation this summer because the fashion blogosphere has gone cuckoo for sophisticated flats this season.

Update (03/10/2016): Discovered these fabulous lace-up flats by Pedder Red which instantly reminded me of the Isabel Marant Leos above. $165 and available in various colors and uppers. By the way, these would also be a great alternative for the popular Zara studded flats.

Jeffrey Campbell “Prudence” Lace-Up Flats

So you love Isabel Marant, we get that. But spending almost $600 isn’t a viable option right now? Well, leave it to Jeffrey Campbell to come up with an almost identical design. JC’s “Prudence” is astonishingly similar to Isabel Marant’s “Leo” flats, but costs $400 less than the real deal. A few sizes are already sold out, so be fast if you want Isabel Marant chic 4 less!

Great flats are hard to find. Especially ones that will look chic even with work attire. These ballerinas by Valentino are perfect to wear with chic cigarette pants to the office and look just as fantastic with leggings and a tunic on the weekend. The studs give them a little bit of a vampy edge while the color makes fair-skinned legs look longer. There is even a tiny hint of a heel to balance them out and provide an extra bit of polish. But even though they are quite gorgeous, they are also a little too expensive for everyday flats. The concept is not completely lost though; there are at least a couple inspired-by versions out there for way less. Keep scrolling down for more tips and info on where to find them!

C Label Hudson 10 Studded Ballerina Flats

This first version by C Label has the same studs as the original as well as the beautiful overall shape and construction. The small difference is their slightly higher heel which I love because even though flats are phenomenal for long days on your feet, that extra half inch goes a long way. But that definitely wouldn’t change how you’d wear them; they would still be perfect with skinny or tailored boot cut trousers and a feminine blouse for work. Just throw on a colorful cardigan and instantly feel inspired by a fresh new take on a little 1950’s glamour.

GoJane Studded Flats

The second option we found is from GoJane, and at under $25 for the pair, you can be sure you’re getting a steal. This style works especially well when worn with jeans and a tee for running errands or grabbing brunch or coffee over the weekend with friends. The cut of the shoe is the exactly same as the designer version, the only difference is the hardware and studs, which are more modest in design. But while the other styles might be dressier, these still look sharp and classic; plus your feet will thank you for giving them a day of rest once in a while.

This fantastic Valentino Bow d’Orsay Pump may look a little familiar to you… that’s because we featured the red version here on ITC back in July 2009. But nude heels are so hot right now that we felt compelled to revisit this pair. They’re a totally fresh take on nude – sculptural and feminine at the same time.

OMG! I’m out of words. If I had to describe these gold strass stiletto pumps by Christian Louboutin with 3 words, mine would be SEX – DIVA & DANGER. No need for a foreplay if you’re wearing these heels. I probably could walk (or rather stand) in these a mere 5 minutes at most, but it’d be sooo worth it. Too bad they’re out of my budget. Even though I don’t know the exact retail price I’m pretty sure it’s somewhere around $2.000-$3.000. Bummer!
