Post your favorite example.

Should tunic/caftan crossover be allowed? Do we need a poll?

Is this an over-mumu or a short caftan? I know what the website calls it but I'm trying to understand the over-mumu.

You know, it's proving to elude description, eche.

I vote caftan. I think an over-mumu has more structure.

What does everyone else think?

Check out the last comment in the discussion area: What is a Caftan?

Sounds like the differentiator is the open front.
I think the "shirt jacket" is what I think of when we're talking about over-muumuus:

This is really more of a long jacket, but wow:

No effing way. No way could anyone but Michael Jackson, Prince, or Liza (& her impersonators) wear that. (Or someone playing a role in H.M.S. Pinafore.)

I'm calling your bluff. I want to see a pic of you, in that jacket. Otherwise, it's all just talk, rcw.

I'm not saying I own one, just that, IF I could find one that fit me properly, I'd wear it.

It's a tribute jacket!

I think a person has to be able to do a complete dance spin and hold a note while waving a hand before she/he can lay claim to wearing that jacket.
I don't understand! Are you talking about a Mrs. Roper style caftan?

Sort of CG sometimes, but not really
2B, medium? normal porosity and elasticity?

Cleansers -
Suave Clarifying, Philosophy Happy Birthday Beautiful

Stylers - BRHG, re:coil, Ion Hairspray

I live in the NYC area.


What note do you want? I can do Middle C.

Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
