I LOVE BRITS! My Self Portrait Dress arrived.

Posted on / by GlossyTimes

After reading an article about Self Portrait in Abu Dhabi’s Harper’s Bazaar in April on the beach, I ended up visiting their site, Net-A-Porter and Matches Fashion.

The other day Self Portrait released a new line and I fell in love with a lovely dress (Pre Fall 2015/16). The price point is excellent. For not even 400 Euros you get a brilliant fashion piece. Stunning quality, good fit and a very modern twist. The colour is amazing as it makes me look tanned. Being pale by nature, THAT’S quite something. It runs quite small, I would advice choosing at least one size bigger than normal. I found mine at Matches Fashion.

What I love about the dress is the million bucks appearance, pockets and the colour. Which is greyish violet. Same as BOULESSE.

The genius behind the brand is a gentleman of Chinese origin who graduated from London Central St. Martins. Another “Brit” I admire lately is Sophia Webster. I already introduced you to the new shoes I purchased recently in my last post.

And as you can see, I am also wearing my no-name earrings again, that I wore at the Moet event.

PS: I might have to send the dress back and exchange it, as it smells like an attic for some odd reason. So I will wait two more days before my decision, but let us hope the smell will fade….having an eCommerce business of my own, I am much more tolerant these days….

Stay elegant,

    Dear B.,

    you are an absolute stunner in this dress, such a lovely sight! When I saw the picture of you, I had to look thru the self portrait collection and must say all of the dresses are just gorgeous! Thanks for introducing me, this may be the end of my desperate search for a decent dress. You do have to spoil yourself sometimes, right?! 😉

    kind regards, K.

    Dear B,
    I just wanted to Tell you, that i loved your Blogger Sale Last year. I bought something for a fair Price and it came to me in Perfect condition.

    Just bought something from Another Blogger and it campe to me smelling Strange and clearly about 100 years old what wasnt visible on the pictures. And it has a Little hole, too. So frustrating!!
    Just had to speak that out loudly ://

    Wishing you the best!

      What did you get from me? Was the other blogger also Austrian?

      I got them at the bazaar in Istanbul! I think it is one of the nicest places to buy some decent bling bling for small money 🙂

    The dress looks very French actually…and suits you very well indeed! You are very blessed with your pale skin, I have to use tons of SPF 50 every summer to be just a little bit tanned. Annoying.

    Wow, you look amazing!!! The dress suits you so well and the shoes work perfectly with it! The earrings are a dream!
    Thank you for introducing me to Self Portrait! I had a look at their clothes and there is one piece I definetely consider buying.
    Brits (or Brit educated) do it best!!!
    Can you introduce your Boulesse team to us? I am very interested in getting to know more about your venture and the people behind it.
