I was looking for a dress for a friends wedding next month. I had my heart set on getting a lace dress from the designer Self-Portrait. His dresses are so super feminine and delicate and they are truly a work of art. Plus they are very expensive as well. Fortunately I’m an avid user of ShopStyle (if you haven’t used it yet go now! It will save you so much money!).
The way ShopStyle works is that it remembers what pieces of clothing you like to browse for and you can set alerts for items that you really love and want to be reminded when the item is on sale. This particular Self-Portrait dress caught my eye and as soon as i got the email that it was on sale (60% 0ff what a steal!) I knew I had to get it.
The online retailer Matches Fashion is a U.K. retailer that I have not shopped with before so I was a bit weary to purchase but reading the return policy reassured me that if the item did not fit correctly I could return it without an issue. Not only did they ship the dress super fast in 3 days, it also arrived in the most gorgeous box that was packed expertly by what must be a professional gift wrapper. Seriously, I kept telling my husband look how beautiful it is! It was such a treat just opening it up. Plus you get to keep a cute box 😉
The Self-Portrait dress sadly did not fit well and I had to return it for another size. But the return process was very fast and i received a refund within 3 days. All you need to do is pack your items back in the original boxes and stick the return label on to the box. You will also need to call and schedule a pickup with DHL at your home or office.
Below are some of my favorite pieces from the designer Self-Portrait!
