If you don't know it already, Self Portrait is a label you need to know. They make the most incredible pieces. Ever.
They really are quite simply stunning. I don't really care about labels, and am very happy to shop from anywhere so long as I like the item and I think it's decent quality. However, this is one label I have been fawning over so much.
Everything is elegantly made of embroidered lace and has exquisite detail. I want to just hand over my credit card and say "I'll have it all!"
I went for a matching skirt and top set, which when worn together looks like a dress, but I like it because you can wear it separately, like now. The dress is very formal, yet, with some leather boots, and a black top, the skirt can be more bar worthy, than fancy dinner date.
I also love the skirt, as it's a mini skirt because of the see-through bottom panel, but it's kind of not at the same time, so it's good for people like me who are self conscious of their legs.
Skirt: Self Portrait
Boots: Daniel Footwear*
(Boots also reduced from £199 to £33.44!)
I get so many compliments about this skirt (and the matching top), as it really is a striking piece. I wear this skirt and top again and again, even to the point where my boyfriend said it was a good investment. So if you want to invest in something a bit more pricier than Topshop, I'd say get on Self Portrait now.
