I’m Loving: Self-Portrait

London brand Self-Portrait’s Pre-Fall line is about to change your idea of the Little Lace Dress. Rarely does a brand so deftly mix the frilly and feminine with the crisp, directional appeal of contemporary wear.  Lace dresses, while delicate, are given unique patterns and strong lines for sharp silhouettes that are simultaneously classic and modern.  For a […]
