You may not know but I have a love for tunic dresses. It started in 2012 when my friend Jena made me buy a Thakoon Addition caftan (here, here, here, here and here). I fought her hard on it but she insisted it looked great, so to the cash register I went. At the time I had no idea how much use I would get out of it. Fast forward a few years and I have worn it more than any other piece in my closet. There isn’t a party that goes by I don’t wear it. It has become somewhat of a joke amongst my family and friends. What I love most is that it is breezy and you can dress it up or down. I have worn it as a swimsuit cover-up and even to a fancy wedding.
When I realized I was wearing the seams out of the dress (literally) I decided it was time to invest in a new one. After a long search I bought the Camilla and Marc Diego Tunic dress. I have been a big fan of Camilla and Marc for years so buying something of theirs was a no brainer. I loved the pleating on the back of this dress and the neutral color really makes it wearable. It is the perfect “dress up or down” piece. Just like the original Thakoon caftan the price tag was more than I wanted to spend but knowing I will get A LOT of wear out of it, made it much more bearable. To be 100% honest, I have gotten more of my money out of my $600 Caftan than any other $50 dress I have ever bought so when you put it into perspective, it isn’t so bad. 🙂
It is seriously a great dress and it is already in my bag for my upcoming trip abroad. The only thing I would recommend is to size down. I ordered my normal size and it was a bit big (it is currently at the tailor being altered). Also, if you buy the dress here then the sizes are U.S. but if you buy it here they are Australian sizes, so pay attention!! There is a size chart which helps a lot!!!
