Here I am showing you a River Island alternative to Self Portrait. This brand is receiving a lot of visibility from bloggers, influencers and celebrities but it is not cheap. To be honest is not very expensive as well but there is a good alternative on the market and it is from RI.
Alternative to Self Portrait
The River Island Alternative to Self Portrait
I am a big big fan of Self Portrait – I receive mail notifications from every website that sell Self Portrait, like at least 2-3 mails daily because I have my eyes on a few dresses. The ones I really like haven’t got my size available or they are way too expensive to be bought not on sale, hence here is why I had a look online for alternatives.
I was simply on Asos when this dress popped out. It’s a cut off see through dress from River Island and it has some influence from Self Portrait. Nevertheless it is stunning, I had to put in my cart and try it on. So I did. All I can say is how high quality it is. All the details are well made, the embroidery see through part is so perfect and the ruffles on the skirt aren’t so evident. I have only found it in black but I am not complaining!
what I am wearing: River Island dress / Jeffrey Campbell Pumps (old) / MAC Stone lipstick
What I really love is the deep V cut on the back where there is a golden zip and the T line on the front. I got the wrong size (I am still not very good at this even though I wrote a blog post that will help you choosing your right size when shopping online) precisely a size 8 UK whereas I would have needed a size 6 because I didn’t consider the top part that needs to be braless.
Apart from this, I styled the dress with my good old pair of studded pumps from Jeffrey Campbell. I will be waiting for my perfect Self Portrait dress to appear in the near future but for now, this is a very good replacement.
What do you think? Self Portrait obsessed too?
