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, which by the way got silently renamed correctly to “Azalea” in the meantime, thus probably referring to the flower, 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.

Donna Morgan “Valentina” Novelty Lace Midi Dress

Update (03/19/2017): And how gorgeous is this summery yellow lace dress by Donna Morgan? It’s quite similar to the H&M version below and I think I like this one even a little more. Not a total steal at $148, but probably worth the investment.

H&M Lace Dress

Update (08/23/2016): Just a quick heads-up to let you know that the gorgeous H&M Azaelea dupe dress is now also available in a lovely light pink color! This dress has been restocked several times and always sold out super fast, so don’t wait too long if you love this one! A similar off-shoulder version is available here (comes in white, mint green and light pink).

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 and rose pink 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 definitely worth the money, the fit is flattering and the quality is good. So if you’re a fan of feminine lace summer dresses, this one is a great buy!

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?

Persun Flower Embellished Cami Dress

And of course, where there’s a trend Asian copycats can’t be too far away. The design of the Persun midi lace dress is very close to the real deal (including the colors), but I can’t tell for sure whether the quality is worth paying $37.99 for.

Similar dress options are also available by Choies & Jessica Buurman.

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 (now on sale for $69.95), 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 $380 cheaper than the original, so if you’re OK with paying that much money for a copycat design, feel free to do so.

Up until recently British designer J.W. Anderson hasn’t been on my fashion radar, but now that I’ve seen his latest womenswear collections, especially the bags and the shoes, I immediately subscribed to his various social media channels in order to never miss out on his future creations again. But let me give you an example of J.W. Anderson’s unique aesthetic first: look at these gorgeous asymmetrical pointy ruffle booties below! I love the boldness of the ruffles and the fact that the asymmetric arrangement forms a forward-facing arrow when both feet are standing next to each other. What I’m not loving though is the price: $840 in retail and even the sale price of $570.99 is still pretty hefty!

Just as recently promised today is the day we’re finally covering the incredibly popular Gucci “Princetown” loafer mules that have been constantly flooding our fashion feeds for roughly the past twelve months. If Stuart Weitzman’s “Highland” overknee boots have been the “It“-shoe for Fall/Winter, Gucci’s “Princetown” is the absolute must-have shoe for Spring/Summer. We’re admittedly pretty late to the party, but even though the loafer mule trend has been around for quite a while now, there seem to be no signs of slowing down anytime soon. And with Spring around the corner, Gucci’s “Princetown” is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. That is, if you can stomach the price tag of $595, of course. Luckily, there’s no need to shell out a fortune to be right on trend this season as we have compiled a list of more than *drumroll please* 20, yes, TWENTY Gucci “Princetown” alternatives for you to satisfy all your fashion needs! This is an absolute first in the history of this blog; to start out with so many designer dupes right from the get-go. It only goes to show just how insanely popular (and probably super comfy) this footwear trend is at the moment. I also love how ELLE referred to loafer mules as “…the mullet of office-friendly footwear” which is one of the funniest fashion metaphors I’ve read in a while.

AnnaKastle Backless Slip-On Loafer Mules

AnnaKastle is a brand I have recently discovered on Amazon and they have the biggest selection of Gucci “Princetown” dupes I’ve yet come across. Fur, no fur, embroidered, printed, you name it, they got it. I assume the merchant is operating somewhere from Asia to be able to produce such spot-on “Princetown” look-alikes and most of the dupes sell for ~$50. Customer reviews average around 4/5 stars, so I’d say they’re worth taking a closer look at. I wouldn’t say they’ll last you a lifetime, but if you want to try the trend without breaking the bank, this one might be a suitable option. By the way, my personal favorite of the Gucci dupe bunch is the rose embroidered one, it’s so pretty!

Billi Bi 5220 Slip-On Loafer Mules

Not convinced? Well how about these Gucci “Princetown” look-alikes by Billi Bi which might be especially of interest for all of you European Gucci budget-conscious fashionistas. They’re rather on the expensive side at €179.95, but possibly worth the investment if you are not looking for a cheap fix.

Marc O’Polo Backless Slipper Mules

Another fabulous look-for-less option inspired Gucci’s “Princetown” mules are these backless slipper flats by Marc O’Polo which I think would be perfect to wear at the office. Again, these are not exactly budget-friendly, but the quality looks so good, don’t you agree? Also available in half sizes.

Steven by Steve Madden “Razzi” Slipper Mules

Let’s make a full circle here and close as we began: with Steve Madden. Apparently one Gucci “Princetown” dupe was not enough for Steve Madden, so they came up with multiple more and we decided to show you the Steven by Steve Madden “Razzi” which is available in a velvet version as pictured below, but also comes in other exotic variations like studs or python print. The price point for these designer dupe beauties ranges between $70.99 to $119. My favorite of the bunch: soft pink suede! A Barbie dream come true!

Alright, I’ll just come out and say it: I like big bows and I cannot lie! And I’m not going to deny! OK, OK, enough with the rhymes and musical references, let’s cut straight to the chase: this suede d’orsay pump by newcomer Aminah Abdul Jillil with the oversized bow on the ankle is a picture-perfect example why I can’t resist anything with a big, fat bow on it. Take a moment and let the beauty of this shoe unfold before your eyes. Don’t you just love how bold and feminine this pump is? Especially in red suede? AH-MAZING! And the best thing is that it ain’t too expensive either: $215 is a solid price for a shoe this pretty if you ask me, but if you can’t justify spending that much on such a statement shoe, we’ve come up with a few budget-friendly alternatives that will give you the same look a little down below.

First ones in line would have to be these lovely side bow pumps by Jessica Buurman.

If you like it a little more girly, then this bow-adorned pump by Mojo Moxy might be the right fit instead. The bow on these is more feminine and less abstract than on the Aminah Abdul Jillil pumps, but the overall look is still the same. Also, I’m totally obsessed with the green color (♥)!

Dior has done it again! Once again they created THE hottest pair of sunglasses to have this season and I think the Split sunnies are my absolute Dior sunglass favorite yet! I just adore the horizontal lens band on the classic aviator shape (so unique!) and the luxe-looking color combos. AH-mazing! But also extremely expensive as these shades will set you back $555.
