Mara Hoffman kimono

Trees grow all over the streets.

[Mara Hoffman Frida Cocoon Coverup, via shopbop + TR Joey cutoffs + Led Zeppelin tshirt + Sam Edelman Louies.] A simple formula works best for most instances. It’s an easy thing to forget, but boiling it down—boiling everything down—it works. Shorts, a t-shirt, a bath robe-ish sort of mechanism… friends, a dock, a bottle of […]

Black and blue.

[Lilka’s Closet silk robe + Rolling Stones t-shirt + Citrine by the Stones fringed collar + Luv AJThings ankle cuff.] Not one of the Stones’ best records, but everyone gets a free pass. (more…)

The 8th Day of Chris-mas.

[Theodora & Callum caftan via Shopbop + Sam Edelman fringed boots + antique Moroccan pendant via Free People.] A bit of a stretch here, but that’s why I dig a good homage. I’ve been saving this pic of His Chrisness because I love this (probably fragrant) jacket and want to rip it from his scrappy […]

Mara Hoffman hooded caftan

Don’t let the butt biters getcha.

[Mara Hoffman hooded caftan + J.Crew hat + Gara Danielle beads.] There are trips, and there are getaways. There are vacations, and there are soul-quenching breaks from everyday life that smooth you out. Breaks from worry. Even my split ends are chill like Sade and a bottle of Bombay. (more…)

yellow silk caftan

With your carefully designed topless swimsuit.

[Illia caftan + vintage ring + Minnetonka mocassins.] Just popping out on a warm night to split a burger and a beer around the corner on Strawberry Street. I love the ombre grey on this little baby—helpful in undie-hiding efforts, too. And it makes me want to be seaside on the Mediterranean. Now! God, I […]

The house of the rising sun.

[Afternoon hanging. Staring at Stars jacket + Pure/Good t-shirt + UO hat + AG jeans.] First! Look at my awesome robot-inspired copper wire and glitter garland I made from tree dropping at Maymont. It’s about to be a year-round installation. So, just padding around the apartment with a Hoegaarden, music playing, windows open on this […]

Rachel Pally Gwyneth caftan.

[Rachel Pally Gwyneth caftan dress @Shopbop, $238.] Gorgeous. Finally she got away from the bag-o’-fabric treatment: exposed shoulders, plunging neckline and sculptured sleeves. Throw this on with a squash blossom necklace and some fringed boots and you’re gold. If you’re me, I mean. -Carey

Mexican caftan dress from Les Gazelles.

[Mexican dress, $1800, Les Gazelles. Found via OracleFox.] I’ve got a few explicit plans for my memorial service. [If anyone shows up.] Ignoring the morbidity of this notion, I have very specific instructions about music, something I’ve written I want read, and the degree to which I plan to booze up the guests in my […]

Caftan: Diana Rigg in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

While design*sponge’s “Living In” features make me want to sort of live in movies as a rule, if I really had to pick one movie to live inside, it’d be On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. I am sort of a Bond spazz in general—don’t get me started on the John Barry scores—but Diana Rigg’s wardrobe […]

Caftan: Matthew Williamson

[Matthew Williamson Palm leaf silk caftan, $1680 at net-a-porter.com] There’s not much getting around the sheerness of this one, which poses sort of a problem, given the astronomical price. If I’m spending $1700 on something (and I never will, unless it’s facial reconstructive surgery after a nasty run-in with some face-ripping chimps. God, I hate […]

Caftan: Anna Sui

[Anna Sui printed silk caftan, $480 at Net-A-Porter.] Oh, glorious morn. Isn’t this what you see in your bean when you think “caftan”? It’s like going 4 years without a spot of cottage cheese then one day saying, “I miss cottage cheese,” and eating it, and saying, with white-flecked lips, “Yes. This is what cottage […]
