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.

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 in mint green is available here.

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!

Check out this lovely lace midi dress by Aqua which is available in either black or light blue and is significantly 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).

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.

P.S.: Similar dress options are also available by Choies.

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.

Fall has officially arrived now and I am slowly starting to build my winter wardrobe. Acne Studios‘ “Velocite” shearling jacket has been an obsession of mine for several years. I just love the luxe-looking, plush shearling lining, the straps and buckles, the oversized moto look. It’s the perfect winter jacket and just look how fab and cozy all the style bloggers look in their Acne Velocite below. The only thing holding me back to get my own Acne Velocite? The price tag, of course. $2.800 is a pretty steep price.

It seems like Aquazzura is currently the blogger brand of the moment. With their lace-up shoe designs they managed to gain quite some momentum among the fashion blogosphere as you can see by how many fabulous personal style bloggers haven been flaunting Aquazzura in the picture below. The “Christy” flats seem to be especially popular (right along the just as coveted “Belgravials” flats which we’ll be featuring in a Real vs. Steal post soon as well). I think it’s the elegant pointed-toe and the delicate lace-up detailing that makes these flats so feminine and lustworthy to so many ladies. And which woman doesn’t long for a break from high heels from time to time? Luckily, we were able to come up with a few fantastic and budget-friendly alternatives, so you don’t have to spend a fortune if you don’t feel like it to achieve the Aquazzura designer look.

Ivanka Trump “Tropica” Pointy-Toe Lace-Up Ghillie Flats

Update (11/19/2015): These lace-up flats by Ivanka Trump aren’t an identical match when compared Aquazzura’s “Christy” shoes, but they’re still one of my favorite lace-up flats at the moment and you can definitely see some Aquazzura influence going on here. Be fast, these flats are selling very quickly! Available in nude, black, blue and pink suede.

While these suede lace-up flats by Office are not an identical match and are more of the inspired-by kind, I think they make a beautiful alternative if you’re going for the Aquazzura look. Not a spot-on dupe, but definitely beautiful in their own way.

While Self-Portrait certainly had its breakthrough with the Azaelea dress, my personal SP favorite was another dress: Ivy, a gorgeous lace-trim tiered midi dress with a Swiss Dot texture and an open lace-up back. I could probably gush about this dress for the next hour or just simply say that it is *the* perfect summer dress! Playful, feminine, delicate, breezy – what more could you possibly ask for in a summer dress? The only bummer is the price of $625 (now $437.50) which seems reasonable when you consider all the details that this dress has to offer, but still, $437.50 is a lot of money for a lot of people.

Warehouse Lace Tiered Dress

When I first saw this lace tiered midi dress at Warehouse, it instantly reminded me of the Ivy dress even though it clearly has some obvious differences. I wouldn’t call it a dupe, but the whole concept of the dress, which is available in either black, white or rust by the way, is definitely at least inspired by Self-Portrait’s whimsical aesthetic. Unfortunately, this Ivy look-alike dress ain’t cheap either ($176!), but at least it’s still almost $450 cheaper than the real deal.

I remember Rag & Bone most notably for their amazing shoes, but after seeing this cool yet preppy yet sexy plunging v-neck sweater here, I think I might have to start taking a closer look at their clothing line as well. What I really like about this sweater is the juxtaposition of the preppy design against the super sexy deep v-neck. But would I be willing to spend $395 on this – admittedly very stylish – sweater? Probably not.
