Kaftan style vintage dresses have been haunting my ebay watch list for a good while now. I love the flowing fabric, the beautiful and unique vintage prints, not to mention the on-trend boho feel and relative affordability. Recently, a number have been popping up that I am seriously considering bidding on!

vintage ethnic kimono maxi kaftan

My first kaftan for this double eBay post channels stunning Japanese style, in a wide-armed maxi-dress kimono style with a decadent floral print around the wrists and more. It is lovely, feminine and the draped casual shape is to die for. By the way, apologies for the cliched language I seem unable to avoid in these posts!

70S Boho Strapless Gypsy Flower Cocktail MAXI DRESS

Second is more 70’s, although this floor length maxi dress uses Art Nouveau colouring and floral elegance to it’s very best advantage. It is nice to see a 70’s dress that is, for once, free of all that brown and orange which so characterises that era. That impression, in fact, in rather unfair, and is why beautiful gems like this should help to prove that every era has it’s fashion successes! Less than a day left for this one!

Where can I get my hands something similar to the second dress??

Hi The Fan. I would imagine that those dresses have already sold. However, why not try nipping onto eBay and searching for “vintage kaftans”, there are bound to be some great examples!
