A Certain Age
I may be a lady of a certain age, but I like to think of myself as more like Buffy than Mrs. Roper
Tell me McCalls, why do you want me to wear a caftan?
Caftan should ONLY be worn under the following circumstances: you are traveling in a caravan by camel to the source of the Nile. Every evening when the caravan stops at an oasis, you bathe and slip into your silk embroidered caftan and recline while quiet servants bring peeled grapes, cool juices and delightful mezze to awaken the appetite. Perhaps Robert Redford or Ralph Fiennes is peeling those grapes.
Other than that occasion, I'd vote NO on the caftan issue.
Dear McCalls, please take back this caftan, the baggy unsuitable babydoll tops, and instead bring me the suave, witty, sophisticated patterns I ordered.
