Does this lace top look familiar to you? If not, I've got a story to tell. This design is originally a white lace top & a dress version made by the designer Self-Portrait. I was kindly sent this top for consideration but I had no clue about it being such a close dupe of a much more expensive piece before I randomly spotted it on a famous blogger on instagram when I was sitting and writing this post (how ironic). I clicked on the picture and thought she was wearing the same top as mine before I realized it was SP and such a shocker because mine looks pretty much identical. Then as I researched more I found a few of my favourite bloggers had worn it before like Gal Meets Glam and The dash of darling.Now onto this top, it's definitely not a true lace material and I'll describe it more as crochet. I love the little slit detailing on the arms and choker like collar trim is so pretty. I paired it with my trusty blue jeans, a bright red lip and matching red kitten heels which are so comfortable to walk in. These kind of tops are so versatile because they're pretty much acceptable in any season and I always find myself being drawn to white lacey things which do look incredibly similar a lot of times. I like that this one's a bit unique for a casual, everyday outfit. It's definitely nothing like SP in terms of quality but it's equally stylish I'd say for something I'll only be wearing a couple of times as it's quite a statement white blouse. You can't go wrong when it only costs $18 when compared to SP's $260 price tag.
