When I first spotted this AMAZING caftan from seller indie cult vintage, I fell deeply in love! Described as a "wine and gold metallic sheer chiffon caftan", it started off at around $40. I decided to "watch it" and crossed my fingers that it wouldn't increase too much in price.
The auction just ended and I watched the seconds tick down to zero till it sold (not to me)... for $450.99!
Way too rich for my blood! I didn't even get a bid in! Such a shame, I dream of hosting dinner parties in something like this! So beautifully detailed you could almost hang it on a wall:
It's very similar to one I found in black a year or so back at The Way We Wore which also recently sold. So sad. It wasn't in my budget (around $800) but I loved to just visit it!
The same seller also had a quite fabulous "cigarette" dress for sale a few weeks ago. I'm not a smoker, never have been, not a fan of it on any level, but this dress is undeniably kind of incredible. It sold last week for $152.50.
I had more success with the below item, again from indie cult vintage. It was described as a "vintage 80s ethnic abstract kimono cocoon draped jacket" and I'm very pleased to have just won it at the very last second - literally with 47 seconds left on the clock!
Thankfully it was MUCH cheaper than the caftan!
Not to go on a caftan tangent but I am all about caftans! Caftans and kimonos! I look forward to being a crazy cat (& dog) lady who exclusively wears caftans and kimonos!
A past obsession, this amazing Oscar de le Renta caftan from a year or so ago: love!
