I am in love with this dress.
I just checked out the book Best Dressed, which has pictures and descriptions of some the exhibits from the show Best Dressed: 250 Years of Style, which was at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1998.
This one is from the "Egyptomania" page in the book. It was made in 1923.
A few of the other dresses don't look incredibly old and dated as well, but this one. Wow. I'd wear that if I could. Everything is perfect about it - the loose sleeves, the colors, the shape.
I spent most of the summer looking for a decent informal summer type dress. I found two okay ones, but this is it. Even with sleeves.
