Self-Portrait review & the best statement styles to slip into this season
Self Portrait came onto my radar when sparkly bow dresses took off a few years ago. I also found myself wearing their beautiful lace midi dresses on more than one occasion. Although, they got harder to get hold of after Emily from in Emily in Paris wore this designer more than just once. From the orange lace Self-Portrait midi dress in season 2 to the yellow strapless dress in season 3. It’s one of those brands whose signature styles always seem to catch on for both their design and price point. Here’s the styles and bags I’m crushing on this season, as well as the Self Portrait black bow dress I’m wearing, sale finds and need-to-know review.

Who and what is Self Portrait
Self-Portrait is a London based brand founded by Han Chong back in 2013. It’s a brand that’s close to my heart as he’s a graduate of Central Saint Martins which has a close relationship to the college I attended, Central School of Ballet. Every year we’d collaborate and put on a show in London wearing their designs.
Designed in London, made for the world – Self-Portrait believes in celebrating and empowering the women in the clothes. Femininity ensured by elegant functionality …The name Self-Portrait was born, to be a reflection of the women in the designs.
They’re known for their crystal bow dresses and lace sheath and fit and flare dresses. This brands aesthetic is ladylike but fashion forward, feminine and flattering and I can’t get enough of it.
I’ve always found Self-Portrait dress sizing spot on and the quality and craftmanship so well done. If you’ve visited this site before you know my aesthetic and personal fashion preference is very feminine and glam. I’d always rather be over dressed than under dressed which is why I pretty much want everything in each and every one of their collections.
They don’t just do dresses but other clothing and the cutest bow embellished envelope bags I’m currently coveting.

Self-Portrait Bow Dress
This pink bouclé mini dress is on my favorites list. It’s such a pretty style for Summer whether for a wedding guest dress or summer soirée.
White Bow Dress
If I had an all white party to go to this season this would be the dress I’d go in. It’s so beautifully cut and the bustier is right on trend. There’s so much detailing to it from the crystal straps to the bow. Adds to cart…
Self Portrait black dress
A classy lace LBD that’s versatile enough to work for so many occasions. Lace can look a little sedate but this Self-Portrait black dress is sexy and fashion forward.
