Guipure Lace Dress


Hi lovelies, in today’s post I’m showing this stunning dress from Self-Portrait. Not only is it a great choice for wearing out to have cocktails or dinner… with the wedding season upon us, it would be perfect for wearing to a friend’s wedding.

The dress is a statement piece in its own right and so does not need many accessories. I love the colour combination of sky blue and black. The fit is very flattering, cinching in the waist with an attached mock belt, which is actually sewn onto the dress. It falls loosely over the hips enabling freedom of movement and is constructed with a built-in slip.

Those of you who are familiar with Self-Portrait clothing knows that the sizes tend to run small. Although I’m happy with the size I bought, one size bigger would have been a better choice.
