Are Self-Portrait Dresses Worth The Money?
This is one of my absolute favorite dresses hanging in my closet. It cost a small fortune so I have worn it to every major event: my engagement photos (here), engagement party, and it’s even perfect for a bridal shower. The lace photographs beautifully and the see-through fabric at the bottom of the dress is delicate and feminine.
Self-Portrait is a contemporary brand with a bit of an avant-garde twist. The dresses and tops are three-dimensional and have playful vibes. The sizes are UK-based and run small. I highly recommend going up 1-2 sizes. I went up one full size, there is a slight stretch but not much.
This dress is one of the Self-Portrait staples. It comes out every season in different colors. It is currently found in white, maroon and blue. This dress is timeless and is worth the splurge as it continues to be produced throughout each season.
So comes the question are they worth the money?! Yes and No. I think it’s worth it for a special event. This was a dress I wore for my bridal shower so it was special. However, just to wear as a guest to an event I’d opt for a cheaper alternative. The brand Bardot has amazing dresses that look similar for a fraction of the price!
