Sofia Coppola and the eternal Caftan search

Sofia Coppola

I have a feeling that Ms. Coppola is actually not wearing a true Caftan (or Kaftan, if you prefer) in this photo (rather, a shirt), but doesn’t it look like the perfect poolside cover-up nonetheless?

We’re headed to Hawaii soon, a gift from family, and I’ve been using it as an excuse to finally splurge on that caftan I’ve always wanted. The long Butterfly caftan from EmersonMade was out of stock for a long time, and I was kicking myself for not buying it when it first came around… but it’s back!

Some other favorites:

All but the Zara one are shockingly pricey, so be on the lookout for good candidates at H&M or Forever 21! Or, better yet, put the money toward vacation and hunt one down when you’re somewhere that actually makes them (Morocco, West Africa, India…). What do you think? Are you obsessed like me or do you think they’re too shapeless? (A real risk!)

My version of the look (it’s a robe) in Bali. Coming up next week: the rest of the Bali Travelogue!
