In support of the kaftan...




...I was going to comment on your recent post.  But at the time I read the post the comments on other posts were getting, shall we say, slightly tetchy. And frankly I didn’t want to get torn to shreds. I’m a coward and I’m ok with that.

Anyway, to get to the point (and I appreciate I’m slightly late in getting there) and in support of the venerable garment that is the epitome of all things 70s, I thought I’d send you the above photos of my wedding last year. I wore a Temperley kaftan. I am led to believe that it was supposed to be beach-wear. I loved it. My husband loved it. The guests said they loved it. My brother said I looked like I should be in Blake’s 7.  

And that’s all I have, other than to say that you evil club of mean hipster brides rocks. But you knew that anyway.

No, YOU ROCK.

  7. LOVE. For the record, I was in favor of the Kaftan, it's just that my husband was voting. I don't let him vote on my wardrobe, however.

    Anyhow, HOT.

  16. The bride in question here.

    Amusingly, this is the first time any of the wedding photos have really seen the light of day, despite the fact we got married almost bang on a year ago. Mainly because I've been too lazy to do anything with them.

    So thank you for making the first outing of the photos such a good one.

    I reiterate, you guys all rock. In a spectacular way.

    Much love

    D
