Picking the right piece is all about colour, shape... and embellishments
Embellished in stunning crystals, I felt a million bucks and like spring was oozing out of me.
SPRING fashion is my favourite – bright colours, bold prints and the perfect temperature for resort wear, minus the stickiness that summer brings.
Each spring I look to brighten up my wardrobe and, never one to shy away from bright colours, I love to amp it up and liven up my everyday look.
For years now, I’ve been on a mission to find the perfect kaftan – one that is bright and bold without looking Jersey Shore, light and comfortable without the moo moo factor, and within a price point that I can actually afford to wear rather than house in a safe.
My husband cringes when I mention kaftans. He can’t understand why I would want to wear a ‘tent’ as he calls them.
Now Mr Tink, god love him, is no fashion mogul and while most of his threads are not what you would call on trend, he is not totally wrong in his thinking. If you choose the wrong kaftan with no shape, essentially you are wearing a very pretty tent.
So for years now I’ve been trying to find my ‘Kardashian in Miami’ look without spending a mortgage repayment in the process... and without the tent factor.
Recently the kaftan gods shone upon me and brought with them a local business called Embellished Kaftans.
Embellished Kaftans have captured the art of creating comfortable and stylish pieces suitable for all shapes and sizes.
Each kaftan features bold prints that are perfect for the Sunshine Coast or a trip to Miami should the Kardashians come calling.
A piece I fell in love with that satisfied every item on my wishlist was the Carnival Salsa Dress. This kaftan hugged in all the right places and screamed ‘I’m on holidays, let’s have cocktails!’. Light and floaty and a dream to wear, it’s perfect for an outing on the esplanade in Mooloolaba or cocktails at Bistro C in Noosa.
Embellished in stunning crystals, I felt a million bucks and like spring was oozing out of me. Given the quality, and in comparison to others on the market, I was very surprised at the $195 price tag – far cheaper than another brand I’d been eyeing off.
It is stylish and affordable fashion that will last longer than the season and the best part is they are right here in our own backyard, which means you can go into their showroom and find the one perfect for you.

So what was the verdict from the husband? A date in my new kaftan! Mr Tink is officially a converted kaftan man.
