Kaftans for the Party Season

Shopping for any celebration is a happy time, especially from a fashion perspective. With each new season designers thrill us with innovative apparel choices, and the upcoming festive season is no exception. Christmas in particular is a time for enjoyment and celebration, so there’s no better excuse to treat yourself to some elegant threads.

Now of course with December beckoning, for women this is the time to go all out and look your best. After all, if you can’t make a special sartorial effort around the Christmas and New Year season, when can you?!

However, it’s astonishing how stressful the preparation period can be, especially where choosing an entire new season’s wardrobe is concerned. But in an age where we “buy now and pay later”, fashion-savvy females are no strangers to going the extra mile in order to stay looking stylish.

Kaftan fashionSo what are some of the best clothing choices for this year’s season of goodwill? There is no magic rule book for what classes as the number one outfit choice, but we can take the time to have a look at the following points for some inspiration in the process…

The Kaftan

You may not immediately picture a kaftan to wear around the Christmas period, but it’s surprising just how fashionable designs have gotten over the years, so do not rule this garment out just yet. Light and flowing to wear, kaftans are essentially wearable pieces of art due to their versatile variety of prints. If you’re looking to browse through a decent range of kaftans online, you’re in for a treat with the Queen of Kaftans, CAMILLA. Here you will find kaftans of all lengths, prints and embellishments. The good news is that this resort wear essential is designed to flatter the figure, so there is every excuse to buy one. And did we mention that there are different ways of tying the kaftan and creating new looks with the one garment? Winning!

History of the Kaftan

A trend that has become hugely popular since the 1950’s is wearing poolside clothing and beach wear to places other than the seaside. Enter the kaftan. This daring yet delightful trend is here to stay with the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Beyonce all being huge supporters.

The kaftan initially stemmed from the late 60’s and 70’s when hippie culture was at the height of its popularity. Kaftans are very simplistic garments that are usually worn over the top of other clothing choices. However, they can also be worn on their own as a stylish dress. Originating from the Middle East, it used to be that kaftans were mainly worn to cover a male or female’s modesty. But as fashion has moved on, so has the kaftan’s purpose.

Kaftan Styles

Whether you’re a secret hippie at heart, you love to channel Bohemian style like actress Sienna Miller, or you just need an iconic party piece that’s different from the norm, the kaftan definitely appeals to a variety of lifestyles. It is a feminine garment that comes in printed, embellished or plain designs, depending on the designer or retailer. The length of a kaftan can also vary, but recently, shorter editions have been on the fashion menu for many women. So if you want to dress with ethnic flair this season, look no further than the kaftan.

Jay Z will not let go Beyoncé! Read more of this modern day love story! Will it end?

They are trying hard people, very hard to work things out! And it is that asides from all the rumors going on, Beyoncé and Jay Z are refusing to let go, at least not Jay..

This time insiders claim that the resolution of the whole novel lays in her royal majesty Queen Bey! Well King Jay is trying to do ANYTHING at hand to solve that little indecition, the insider tells us more:

‘There has been talk of divorce and it’s been really tense at times on the tour. Beyoncé has been leaning on her mom and sister a lot since they are so close. Jay wants everything to work out and is trying to convince Beyoncé how much he does not want a divorce. It’s flowers, constant texts and telling her he loves her. He is pulling out all the stops.
While they’re still on tour, it’s all business. They’re professionals and they’re trying to keep everything as professional as possible. Beyoncé is torn because she loves Jay so much and wants to keep their family together. She’s turning to family and God to help her through it.”

OMG, it really melts our hearts.. we’d love to see these power couple go great! They are unstoppable together! But it’s getting so stressful with so many stories surrounding the media that we cannot tell anymore what’s real and what’s not?!

JayBey

We would really love for someone to say something already…. we’re eating our nails here!

Jay Z and Beyonce avoiding each other?! How far is this couple willing to go to cover their break up?

Not so ‘Crazy in love’ anymore. OMG, as day passes we keep getting more and more info that this couple may really end up in divorce… Why? They were , well the seemed perfect!

But if it all is for Bey to keep her head up high, we are ok with it. No girl deserves second best, not the wifey not the side kick.. or shall we say kick-S’. Well the rumor has it that their divorce will be announced right after the tour ends.

JayBey

They may be looking pretty cozy, and huggy’ on stage, but insiders say it all changes backstage.. They are just living a lie and pretending in front of the world, for the sake of letting the ‘show continue’.

In private, it is said they’ve spent a lot of time… separated! feeding the fuel more and more as insiders leak info. An insider close to Jay spoke:

” They were staying at different hotels in LA and New York, for several nights. They have avoided each other mutually, Bey is even looking for real state in Chelsea, New York. Looking for a small apartment, and there’s no Jay in this new home”

Even though the super power couple is still showing affection in public, Blue Ivy’s parents whom shared a kiss on stage while in their L.A. show last August 3rd, it is said they will announce the end of all, Tour and Marriage, in September 13th, another insider points us out.

On the other hand, we have a Bey insider who claims the couple is still “Happy” and that they are just having marriage issues, just like any couple does.

But yet again, when rumor has it soooooo strongly, we’re afraid some may be truth! Let’s cross our fingers it’s just a marriage issue that could be solved… ( But being realistic, with so much rumors we are not so sure.. sigh)

All we have to say through the whole song, is ooooooooooooooooooh giiiiirl that gotta burn! Ice ice ice, is what Yonce needs! Because remember the other day when Bey changed the letter of her song, to actually make it make sense and kinda throw shade at Jay for his cheating ass?

Well, it all seems that one’,  yeah one of Jay’s mistresses actually made an open letter to Beyonce, tittled Sorry Ms. Carter… have listen to it and pay very close attention:

 

Wow, not only she dresses her down with blunt forced truth, but she also uses references of Yonce’s own songs to diss her!
Well well well, let’s see what comes out of this, we can’t wait for Bey to speak!

Jay Z and Beyoncé trying too hard to look like a happy couple?? Is Divorce close?

After that elevator drama, the rumors haven’t waited a single second to spread. People saying Solange confronted her brother in law for something that looked serious, while Yoncé just stayed there…

Separated hotel rooms for their tour, an insider said:

“They’re not just staying in different hotel rooms, but they have booked separate hotels, and they arrive separately to each show… They’ve had discussions lately about the inevitable sit-down interview when they finally do split, and Jay’s been adamant that he doesn’t want Beyoncé sitting down with Barbara Walters or Oprah Winfrey pretending to be the victim.
I’m definitely not sure that they’ll make it to Paris.There are lawyers that have now joined the tour, and they’re not here just to see them perform. They are here to help hash things out… From what I know, there’s no prenup.”

Then she releases the remix of the song ‘Flawless’ with Nicki Minaj, in which she mentions the elevator situation like this:

“We escalate, up in this bitch like elevators, of course sometimes sh*t go down when there’s billion dollars on an elevator.”

Rumor has it that Jay still wants to fix things up, check out what an insider had to say:

“Jay wants to save the marriage, they have their final US tour date in San Francisco on August 6 and then they have two dates in Paris from September 12 – that’s it.

He adores his daughter Blue Ivy and he wants a sibling for her, but Beyoncé isn’t sure what she wants to do – their marriage is in flux, that’s the truth. Jay just wants them to spend some time alone together to try and work it out.”

And Jay Z’s attempt to look loving in one of the last performances they’ve done, check out the awkward-est of the hugs ever and tell me they are NOT making it all up..or trying too hard!

I don’t know you guys.. but that looks so acted to me!! like ugh! Well just as if this wasn’t enough, the latest activity in Beyonce’s Instagram has been seen by many as a desperate way of showing the world her WORLD is not crumbling down.. but as an old Dominican saying goes : ” When the river sounds too loud, it may be dragging a few rock” – translated in a more plain English, when there’s too much noise about something, somethin’ fishy is right behind it!

Now check out the Instagram activity of Queen Bey since the elevator fight.

Well, that still looks strange to me.. i mean she posts pics of her husband before but now is like a way to prove something, i may be right or wrong… we’ll let you once more be the judge.. but don’t keep it to yourself tell us more via:

Jay Z and Beyoncé’s marriage is on the edge, according to rumors! But yes they’re still trying to save it!

There;s still all kinds of rumors from cheating to divorce surrounding the super famous couple Jay Z and Beyoncé. In the latest news it is being reported that the marriage is having Skype counseling sessions with a relationship therapist!

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

Awww isn’t that sweet? It is so cool to see that asides that they have 12 years of marriage they are still trying to find the way to work it out. A source close to Jay and Bey has spoken up about these marriage make up:

“It might sound drastic but in America especially, counselling is fairly standard procedure. They have known their therapist for a long time and try to have weekly sessions just to keep communication open and make sure there are no misunderstandings. It’s about maintenance rather than trying to fix anything hugely wrong. They are both happy and their daughter, Blue Ivy, remains their absolute priority.”

We must say we’re very happy with the outtake on this marriage when it comes to solving differences , we praise the action and would like to say that this is a very mature step to take, and it is what any couple who love each other would do after all, right?

We think the will do just great! Let’s cross our fingers so these two stay together!
