Ballin’ On A Budget: H&M vs. Self-Portrait Lace Dress

There are quite a few designer items that many want to add to their wardrobe, but unfortunately the items are way out of their budget. There are many sites or stores that sell designer inspired items with great quality and at an affordable price. H&M and Zara are the best places to shop for designer inspired pieces.

One of the popular dresses that we have seen on celebs over the past month is from Self Portrait. The Self Portrait Azaelea Guipure Lace Dress was seen on Tika Sumpter at Glamour’s Women Changer Brunch and Eudoxiee at a Luncheon.

The Self Portrait dress is made from floral guipure lace and lined in stretch-mesh for coverage. Perfect for weddings, christenings and parties, this design has pointelle trims to define your waist and bust. The pretty antique-rose hue is flattering on all skin tones. The Self-Portrait dress is available for $480.

If you love this look but not the price, H&M has a similar piece for a fraction of the cost. The H&M laced calf-length dress features a v-neck, narrow, adjustable shoulder straps, concealed zip at back, seam at waist with pleats, and full skirt. The dress is available at H&M for $129.

Check out how both ladies wore the dresses below:

Both ladies looked amazing in the dress and both styled the look with nude sandals. Such a beautiful look.

You do not have to spend a lot of money to get a celebrity inspired look. You can look just as fabulous as they do on your budget. Are you feeling today’s Balling on a Budget item?
