Fashion Word of the Day: Caftan or Kaftan

Recommendation of the Day: It may not be in season anymore but  owning at least one caftan is definitely a must!

Fashion 101: What is caftan or Kaftan?  No, we are not talking about your grandmother’s caftan.  We are talking about the modern, usually long, flowing, luxurious dress that has long sleeves and ankle length.  It is often made of silk or satin.

Here are some samples of the uber fashionable and gorgeous caftans but over expensive too!
