Calling All Caftans!

caftan6When not posing nude, my #1 favorite thing to wear is a caftan! You know, those long, flowy, mostly garishly-patterened robes like Mrs. Roper used to wear on Three’s Company? Well guess what: Mrs. Roper is my style icon, and I’m totally KOOKY FOR KAFTANS!

The more 1960s/70s, the better — I love all those old psychedelic neon colors and horrible manmade fibers! Nothing makes me as happy as a big ole polyester muumuu with Permanent Press pleats and a pattern so busy it takes 4 Quaaludes just to calm down after looking at it. I’m getting heated up just thinking about it!

So I’m posting this desperate cry: CALLING ALL CAFTANS!!! If you happen to have any old 1960s or 1970s caftans, muumuus, housedresses or robes of any sort lying around…holla at me! The more garish/hideous, the better — you know me!

I don’t have a caftan for you…..and ewwww to the porno movie adventure although it was probably a memorable experience (and a fun read).
What I wanted to tell you is that I read the yelp review you wrote on the candle shop on E Charleston and I decided to go. Anything I should know before I go there?


Nothing special to know, other than that it’s a very quiet place that takes magic pretty seriously! I had another girlfriend get some candles there last week after reading this…not sure if they worked for her though!


Maybe it’s a dumb question, but have you tried places that sell vintage clothes? I have fond memories of watching “Three’s Company” reruns as a kid/teenager. Thanks for making this old grouch feel young again!


i love the fact you know what a “lude” is, unfortunately they came to an early demise.. i say this because you would have loved them.. haha
