I had to take these at night so I did need to tinker with the exposure and effects a bit.

If you follow my fashion board on Pinterest then you may know that I was coveting this gorgeous Rachel Zoe Caftan for a while prior to actually buying it. It’s even more awesome in person than I’d expected.

Luxe Rachel Zoe Embroidered V-Neck Caftan-eBay, white satiny barrette-The Dollar Tree, blue necklace-Crystalline Dreams, oversize pink floral ring-Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival, cream slip (no tag)-thrifted, Predictions boots-thrifted

I wore this when I went to watch Wanderlust recently. It’s so funny BTW, check out this post for my review. I’m also wearing it in the video. I think that it’s more flattering in photos than on camera though.


I may be channeling Mr. Burns in this one.

If you plan to get one in the future or other items from Zoe’s line for QVC I recommend checking out the comments for sizing info. This caftan ran very large. Some mentioned sizing down but others said that if you were busty (the commenter was a C, also my size) that you should go with your normal size. According to the chart I needed a medium so I ordered the cream caftan, also gorgeous, but even when I tied it as tight as possible it was still too large for me. I decided to exchange it for a small. Then an eBay seller had it half price in a XS (measurements were listed that sounded like they’d work for me). So I bought that and canceled the original order. The XS fits perfectly. Her line offers these in sizes XXS-1X. You’re definitely going to want to size down. It also comes in purple and teal as well as the black and cream. I still plan on getting the cream in the future.

I really adore this caftan. It’s the first caftan I’ve owned and now I want to collect them. It’s like a dress meets a nightgown. So it’s comfy and pretty. I know it’s immature but I feel like a princess in it. My sister said it reminds her of a geisha. I can see that in the pics.

I paired it with a long cream slip (you can skip it at home if you want but it’s a bit sweaty so I still wear one), my pretty necklace from Crystalline Dreams, a fun barrette, an oversize ring and some boots. Yes, I’ve been wearing my lovely caftan on a semi-regular basis since then. It’s fun out and about or on the couch.

Yes, I’ve posted an OOTD of me in this dress before but I think that pairing it with the hat gives it a different look. Speaking of the hat, I bought this during the Missoni for Target madness but there’s like never a good time to wear it. I love how it looks and it’s fun to wear. The problem is that it’s so large and floppy that I can’t really see. So I felt like that pretty much made it unsuitable for going most places, to see a movie, out to eat, shopping, etc. I wore it shopping recently anyway. As a bonus it was very windy that day so I had to keep clutching it so it wouldn’t blow off my head.

Missoni for Target Felt Floppy Hat-Target, Jovovich-Hawk for Target Chiffon Dot Print Dress-eBay, Miley Cyrus & Max Azria faux leather bomber jacket-Walmart, chain necklace-Dots, Xhilaration leggings-Target, Bongo Honor Cowboy Boot-Kmart

This look is pretty simple other than that. I did feel a bit like a witch in this hat dress combo. It reminded me of the song Witchy Woman when it was featured in that episode of Seinfeld when Elaine chooses it as her song. There would be a clip of it included but I can’t locate one, darn!

I’m (possibly) getting to arty with these. Ah, that’s my modeling side wanting to break through. I really need to do a new photo set soon.

Last week it started snowing one night so I thought the next day would be perfect for some outdoor outfit photos.

Sofia by Sofia Vergara Shawl Collar Wrap Sweater-Kmart, C&C California tank dress-thrifted, Attention scarf-Kmart, Xhilaration leggings-Target, Bongo Women's Honor Cowboy Boot-Kmart, Baby Phat corset style wide elastic belt-Beyond the Rack, floral ring-Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival, cat ring-CTB's Closet

I had just snagged that Sofia Vergara sweater I’d been coveting. Kmart was having a huge sale and there was one left. It was a size smaller than I’d planned on getting but the only difference was it’s a bit more boobaliscious than the next size up. I also included these awesome boots that I scored at Kmart. I have a bunch of thrifted boots that I wear all of the time but I really wanted a new pair (that I didn’t have to worry about the heel popping off of). They are cowboy boots but to me they really seem like a cross between cowboy and motorcycle boots. So that makes them a bit more interesting. I’ve been wearing these often since I bought them. They’re perfect for winter.

I decided to layer my sweater over a cotton tank dress and leggings. To give all of that black a little pop I added a floral scarf. Plus I incorporated a corset style elastic belt for shaping. It came with a bubble coat that I wear often but I don’t really care for wearing belts over coats. To finish the look I added a couple of rings.
