Kaftan's Solve All Kinds Of Issue's

I have many issue's.
One being that I am at the beginning stages of menopause so I sweat basically on command, and
I was diagnosed with scoliosis at age 13 and  had surgery, so my back looks like Quasimodo on a good day.

Clothes have always been an issue for me and dresses seem to be the most forgiving which is why the kaftan solves all kinds of problems.

 I am obsessed with this look!
This feels easy and relaxed but still so super cool.

So I have been on the hunt for the perfect kaftan for me.

And finally, I have found a wonderful seamstress on Etsy that I thought I would share with you.

I have been so pleased with these and love ordering things from Etsy.

 So if you have issue's like me or just want to be comfortable, I suggest you check out this site.


  1. I didn't know that about your scoliosis surgery - I have kyphosis with a touch of scoliosis but never had surgery - just PT. Good times. But on a happier note, I love the kaftan look. So very chic!! I'll have to check out that Etsy seller!

  2. I love kaftans and I am always looking for the perfect one!! Off to check it out...thanks!!

  3. Okay, so Sissy (above) just blogged about them today. Did you see the one she picked out?

  4. I'm obsessed with that first photo. Also -- just read an interview with Christina Hendricks from Mad Men last night (in Lucky, I think?) in which she confessed that she wears kaftans instead of sweats around the house because they're more glam but equally comfortable. I love that idea.

  5. Love them!! I need one for this summer for sure.

  6. awe to the some.
    thank you.
    i tried to buy that first one that we both pinned but no dice.
