Dazzling Caftan

As I previously said on Instagram and Twitter, I love my husbands culture.
One of my favorite celebrations is called Eid (click link for description).

Nadia Khalaf from DesetRoseCouture contacted me a few days ago wondering if I was able to review one of their caftans. & ofcourse I said yes! I thought this dress was perfect for Eid celebration. Their designs are beautiful and extremely affordable. 
You can find their designs at their etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/forthedesertroses
You can also follow them on Instagram @desertrosecouture and on Facebook www.facebook.com/desertrosecouture

A few words from Nadia
"Just to let you know more about the business- My mother, sister, and I saw that there was a gap in the market for affordable middle eastern clothing. If anyone ever wanted anything they would have to wait until a relative went overseas to bring back something, and even then, it could be a dress that they didn't like. So, we decided to start selling caftans online for a really affordable price. We've been in a couple of fashion shows, including Fashion for Compassion which was a charity fashion show that donated to a Muslim woman's foundation that helps abused woman get back on their feet. Currently, we're designing more pieces that aren't necessarily caftans but still show middle eastern inspiration". 

One of the great things about this caftan is one size fits all. Pictures will tell the rest.

I'm not sure if my confidence translated into the pictures, lets just say I felt like a princess with this caftan on. The material was flowy (yes I know it isn't an actual word) and so perfect for this New York weather. I did not want this day to end! 

After noticing how comfortable and fabulous this dress made me feel, I wont need a special occasion to wear it again. Heck// I would even wear it to shop at Whole Foods!


All you Trenders stay fabulous even during Hurricane Sandy.
