Classy Caftans from Boudoir to Beach

Written by ogo on . Posted in Lounging Lingerie, Resort & tropical

A caftan is a glamorous maxi dress, a de rigueur part of a fashionable wardrobe here in the Palm Beaches.  You don’t need to live in Palm Beach or Beverly Hills to add some special caftans to your wardrobe.  Rachel Zoe has famously made the look attainable for glam girls everywhere.  Whether you plan to wear yours at home, entertaining a few friends or a very special someone, or to bring to your tropical vacation next winter for poolside lounging, the caftan will add comfort and glamour to your resort wardrobe.  Channel Elizabeth Taylor in Puerto Vallarta with an authentic 1960s caftan – or just turn heads at this year’s Hampton’s farewell to summer bash.  Rest assured that noone else will be wearing the same caftan or resort ensemble by choosing an authentic vintage version.

The selection shown below is available at the OgoVintage etsy shop.

Holiday Hostessing at Home

Written by ogo on . Posted in Lounging Lingerie

Once again, the holiday season is commencing, with parties at home and away.  Whether your  personal style is whimsical or haute, dressing for the occasion is part of the fun.  One of the benefits of hosting the party is having the chance to slip into a special at-home loungewear vintage treasure.  Channel Elizabeth Taylor in her glam caftans in Puerto Vallarta, with lots of bling.  If haute hippie is more your style, capture the best of Talitha Getty in her hippie era caftans entertaining the mod jet set in Morocco.

Ogovintage has an enviable collection of glamorous caftans, with choices available at the ebay store and etsy shop, and new listings posted periodically.  Here is a sampling of OgoVintage at-home hostess glam wear past, present and future…
