You know those dresses that you can just wear for any special occasion? This is one of those dresses. I wish I could say that this is a true Self Portrait Azaelea, but unfortunately my little purse just cannot cover that crazy price. Instead I found a very similar dupe, and can safely say, I am very happy with it.
This bad boy is from Shopaholic UK, and they have this style of dress in a myriad of colours, which is perfect, because you’re able to wear this during every single season, and still look amazing. Wedding? Wear this dress. Christmas? Wear this dress. Honestly, I’ll be wearing it at least twice in the festive season and have already planned on donning it for a wedding or two in the summer; why fork out for a handful of dresses when you have one that could do the job just as well, over and over? Of course, we tried to find the most Christmassy location to shoot this dress, and boy, it did not dissapoint. Christmas trees and sparkling lights galore, I really felt so festive whilst we shot this. There was even a bright red sleigh with the most beautiful wreath attached to the front of it.
The beauty of this dress is that it’s so ornate, the detailing is so beautiful that you don’t really need to do much else. I kept my hair and make up very simple, paired it with my favourite little bag and my favourite heels for special occasions (they have lasted my a good few years, so thanks for that ASOS – here are some similar).
What do you think to this dress? And more IMPORTANTLY, what will you be wearing this for all your special occasions this December?
