The first time I saw a Self-Portrait dress was on my instagram feed. I habitually scroll through my feed every few minutes (because I am a self-confessed social media addict), although rarely do I go further than a like and comment on a photo. However, when Aimee from Songofstyle instagramed the Liliana dress I searched the Self-Portrait profile, then their website and later their stockists. As I browsed through their pages of beautifully detailed, layered and textured pieces I knew I was hooked. The only thing that stopped me from adding to cart and clicking proceed to checkout was the $$$$$$$.
Luckily, the lovely Roxy Jackeno (PR queen of Australia) was selling pieces from her amazing closet (have you checked out the outfits she posts?!?). And you guessed it, she was selling this Self-Portrait dress BNWT for an exceptional price. All hail Roxy! So after lusting for a Self-Portrait dress for a while I finally had my hands on one and wore it to a uni ball, it was a great night in my striped mesh column dress.
Update: I recently just acquired another Self -Portrait piece so stay tuned for another post from this wonderful brand soon.
Also, this is not sponsored by Self-Portrait, I just really f***king love their designs.
