Kaftan + poncho = the most incredible piece you’ll ever own! We mean it. One happy customer said, “It’s like wearing magic….” Once you have one of your own, it will make sense why. She slips on overhead like a poncho (no side seams) and wears like a kaftan with gorgeous drape and total versatility. Style her over a swimsuit for a glam poolside look that will capture everyone’s gaze. Or, wear her over our “Basics” byVINNIK Strapless Dress to an elegant dinner for the same attention-grabbing effect. Jet-setting on a luxe vacation? Throw in a Kafoncho or two for effortlessly stunning outfits — she takes up virtually no space and looks flawless even after being packed tight. She’s like a bright red lipstick; every diva’s got to have at least one! That must be why this byVINNIK signature sells out so fast.

She is a published photographer, guest columnist, stylist and hosted "Diva Who Hustles" an online web-series for The Dallas Opera Network.
