Dress Crush

I spotted this 1940s Sally Milgrim dress over at Timeless Vixen Vintage and instantly fell in love. How beautiful are the appliques on the bodice and the bottom of the skirt? How divine is the big bow at the back? This lovely dress would suit a garden party wedding I think. I just love knowing that pieces this lovely are in existence, whether they ever make their way to my wardrobe or not.
Sally Milgrim had a famous dress shop on the corner of 57Th and Fifth Avenue in New York for many years. She made clothes for many of New York's well-to-do ladies + celebrities too. She famously made the dress that Eleanor Roosevelt wore when her husband was inaugurated as President.

I saw this beautiful dress and the first thing that came into my mind was Ginger Rogers dancing about a ballroom...Can't you just see this dress floating around her?
