Zaful’s Budget-Friendly Self Portrait Azaelea Inspired Dress

Happy FriYAY, marblelous! 💃🏻 I am SO excited to share this special post with you today!

If you love lace as much as I do, then you probably have heard or seen the stunning Azaelea dress by Self Portrait. I absolutely ADORE everything about this dress – the guipure lace, the cutout bodice, the midi length, the side slash pockets, and ohmygoodness, the colors available for this dress is just SO darling (especially the blue, yellow, and mint green ones).

Unfortunately, I just couldn’t for the life of me justify the hefty price tag of a whopping $500 for the dress. So I’ve just been admiring this beautiful dress from afar and being jealous of those who own this darling dress. Which was why I was ecstatic when I found a replica of the Azaelea dress for only $40!! What a steal AND they had it in my size AND the color I wanted!!

This was my first time ordering from Zaful and it has been such a seamless experience – the site is so easy to navigate and I absolutely love the wide selection of items available at such an affordable price. For the price, I was expecting the quality of the dress to be mediocre but much to my surprise, the dress is very beautifully made – it is heavy, properly lined, and the guipure lace detailing is just so intricate and darling. The dress is soft to the touch and fits like a glove. I could hardly tell the difference between the actual Self Portrait Azaelea dress and this $40 inspired version.

Even though my dress was shipped from China, it was delivered via DHL express shipping in a short span of 4 business days. That is amazing considering most orders from our local online stores takes up to a week to be delivered. I love that I was able to manage my delivery by scheduling it to when it was convenient for me and that a signature was required (you can also authorize DHL to deliver the shipment without a signature). Express shipping is an additional $9.99 but if you spend a total of $99, it is free.

My order was nicely packaged and everything I ordered was in perfect condition. I think I have found my new go-to online store for affordable clothing!

    Love the dress so much! Self Portrait has always been my favourite but the hefty price tag stops me from buying it. I’m happy to see there’s a more affordable version of it.
