Chicest Caftan Ever

I had my eye on this caftan for nearly a year now. When I met it, it was over $800, and admittedly too steep for my budget. I watched it go on sale, picked up other similar caftans that reached my markdown threshold, and noticed that it suddenly disappeared from the site.

This happens all too frequently to me, waiting too long to buy an item, and consequently having passer’s remorse. When I miss out on an item, I repeatedly check back on the site, hoping that there has been a return in my size. (I shop online 90 percent of the time. What can I say? The online stores have the tall sizes.) Nine times out of ten, this strategy is successful and I end up purchasing the item at a very competitive price. However this time, when the caftan turned up on the site, it was marked up since the last time I saw it. Rather than buy it on the site, I bought it NWT through an eBay vendor at half of the original store’s current markdown price.

I was thrilled when it was finally delivered. The beaded and sequined silk is beyond beautiful. I received compliments galore when I wore it this past weekend. Also, tall ladies, take note that this is the perfect length. The size small fit perfectly; I cannot imagine anyone shorter than 5’11” not needing to hem it. I look forward to wearing it over a swimsuit this summer, but for now, I will be wearing over a black slip and accessorizing with a glass of rose.
