You may hate the travel, expenditures, and anxiety that goes into attending a summer wedding, but at least you can justify buying a new dress, right? Do yourself a favor and finally get one from celeb-favorite designer, Self-Portrait. Their flattering lace frocks have been worn by everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, though I doubt J.Lo or the Duchess of Cambridge got theirs on sale. But that’s where you have a one-up on them, because a ton of Self-Portrait numbers are currently up to 40 percent off at Nordstrom’s massive bi-annual sale.
