Sharing a quick outfit of the day (OOTD) because this is such a fantastic piece and one of my favorite things purchased all year – maybe of the past 5 years even – a sequin kaftan.
I know what some of you are going to say: why would you buy a sequin kaftan in the middle of a worldwide pandemic?
My answer: Because it's amazing!
This sequin kaftan is from JIBRI, the line of Jasmine Elder, an independent plus size designer based just outside of Atlanta. I've seen some of my favorite plus size fashionistas wear JIBRI throughout the years, and at FFFWeek as Designer of the Year, and when this caftan came out, I bought it as a birthday gift to myself. What a better way to start 39 than being covered in a comfortable sequin caftan that makes you feel like a goddess?!
It even inspired me to do a TikTok:
This is part of the JIBRI Lounge Collection, which features comfortable, but super chic, styles to wear while we're social distancing… and beyond.
(The closest I'm getting to vacation is me standing under one of my house plants. It is what it is!)
The kaftan is beautifully made. The lining is soft and silky, and it's surprisingly not overly heavy or hot. All of the styles at JIBRI are handmade to order, but believe me that the styles are well worth the wait. I hope to be able to order more when things start to open up again.
