I finally found what I thought was the impossible, a caftan that didn't instantly make you look huge or three seasons behind the fashion!
And guess what, it is blessedly void of any sequins, beading or embroidery, oh miracle!
And at only $49.99 is one of the cheapest I have seen.
Comes in pale blue (a little nightie looking if you ask me), royal blue, white or black (though I think black is a little dark for the beach??)
Get yourself to Miss Shop @ Myer, pronto!
