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.
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.
