The ancient beauty of Athens inspired this goddess-worthy style

A lightweight flowing white knee-length kaftan with included fabric-backed gold braided chain belt and sparkling gold jeweled chain neckline.  Perfect Athenian-chic for your next Mediterranean jaunt (or, if you’re like me, I can’t wait to get to Europe – I wear mine while getting some sun around the pool at home!)
Styling tip:  You can just throw it on and look like you spent hours making yourself look amazing – works great for day-to-evening!  Easy and comfortable to wear jetting around the globe, lounging around the resort, or sipping cocktails in the evening while watching the sun go down over the Peloponnese…
