Self Portrait Lace Dresses
August 7, 2015
There are few things that make me swoon more than a feminine, romantic lace dress. Lately I, along with every other fashion blogger out there, have been obsessing over the London-based contemporary line Self Portrait. This relatively new collection launched during the spring season at NM has completely reinvented the idea of the lace dress for day and night. We are fans of the midi dresses in guipure lace that step away from many matronly or bride-like numbers by favoring a romantic and playful look.
While we swoon over the current Self Portrait arrivals in our CUSP departments and online, we’ve rounded up our favorite bloggers sporting their Self Portrait dresses, day to night, from Paris to Los Angeles.
Blair Eadie of Atlantic Pacific is the queen of looking sharp and ultrafeminine with her modern approach to traditional full skirts and lace pieces. This time was no exception.
Annabelle Fleur of Vivaluxury embraces the all-white look of the season, and her gold stack of rings and bracelets modernizes her day-to-night cocktail look.
Guipure lace looks just right in this casual day look from blogger Soraya Bakhtiar. Her Isabel Marant flats and knit top, along with a colorful Céline bag, make an effortless ensemble.
We love Russian blogger Kristina Bazan’s take on this red Self Portrait dress, pairing it with nude Valentino Rockstud pumps and a sleek clutch. However, her black-on-black street style look in New York, along her Sophie Hulme tote and Manolo Blahnik shoes, is basically our ideal summer soirée ensemble.
California-based lifestyle blogger Aimee Song takes the all-white look to the next level by pairing two white Self Portrait styles together. Who thought lace and fringe could look so fresh?
We are also swooning over her lace Azalea dress paired to flat gladiator sandals, proving that flats can tastefully dress down a lovely midi cocktail dress.
Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit took the little white dress to the streets by pairing it with sporty sandals, black leather bag and aviator sunnies. She juxtaposes cool accessories with her modern pearls, which complements the girly aspect of the eyelet dress.
All in all, you can dress your Self Portrait dress up or down depending on your own taste and mood. Whether planning a summer wedding look or just need a closet refresh, this collection is one to keep your eyes on.
