Caftans: Not for Mrs. Roper Anymore
The last time I thought, at all, about caftans was when watching Three's Company as a child. The insane neighbor Mrs. Roper wore them in every episode, each more hideous than the next. Then recently I was styling and photographing the beautiful model Jacqueline Ehlers for a Spring fashion trends article in Gulfshore Life and came across the most divine caftan I have ever seen by Marchesa. The article was supposed to be all about cream and sand tones, but when I saw the glorious pink gown, I had to shoot it. Since that issue appeared I have gotten phone calls from at least a half dozen ladies all asking where they can get that gown. So I am endorsing the gorgeous flattering caftan by Marchesa. Available at Marissa Collections or Marchesa boutiques. Every woman should have one. Every woman can wear one. It's a great way to hide what you might want while still having shape thanks to the sheer layer on top. For evening or the cocktail parties of my dreams wear one and no one will think of Mrs. Roper again.
Mrs. Roper in all her caftan glory.
