The Zaful Azalea dress

The Cami Crochet Flower Midi Dress* from Zaful resembles quite a lot of the dress of desire of all bloggers: the Azalea dress from Self-Portrait. I have never tried the Self-Portrait one, but I have found this cheap alternative and I will write my review right now.

At first, I was in love with the online photographs on the Zaful site and I cried of joy when I found a cheap alternative to a similar Self-Portrait dress. You have to know I love the brand: all the lace details and shapes – it’s a little like For Love and Lemons. Either of them are over my budget, so finding a really good replica was incredibly satisfying. Of course, I have fallen into the stereotypical blogging style but let’s be honest, they are amazing.

Having said that, the Zaful dress is of a medium/good quality, it has adjustable straps and the perfect midi length. I love how it falls just below the knee, while the nude cami dress underneath sits above it. At the back, there is a full length zip in a cakey metallic gold color. It doesn’t show too much, but I would have appreciated something more subtle. You can also check a floral midi dress.

Above all, I cannot find any greater quality than the price. Price alongside with the good material makes this Zaful dress a must-have item in your wardrobe. Although there are a few things to consider before adding it to your wishlist (read basket!):

  • Size down no matter what. I chose a Small (Size 2 in the US) which was still very wide on the top part. Usually I have a size 4 US and a 6/8 UK.
  • The zip closure at back gets stuck quite often. Be careful when zip it up because we don’t all have a prince charming to take care of it every time we want to wear it.
  • Adjustable straps. Since it is wide at top, you then adjust the straps creating a different line under the boobs. Unfortunately those lines do not follow their position anymore.
  • It is not as much light-weight as it looks. The lace details is thick leaving the dress definitely perfect during the autumn season.

Above all, I would say this dress is okay for the price but if you want a piece with a value, which will keep being wonderful throughout the years I would say, save money, put on all the alerts on sales and buy the Self-Portrait Azalea dress. This Zaful replica is the perfect dress to try it on, wear for a while to see if it still worth spending so much money on the actual one.
