It's a beautiful dress! I just searched for some Belle Epoque Clothes and then I saw your pic and my mind said: Emily Warren Roebling was the wife of the guy who constructed the Brooklyn bridge! Man I was surprised 'cause we just had it in History Class!
Yes, is an amazing dress! I didn't know Emily before see this dress in a fashion blog on tumblr, and is love at first sight. I try to find more about her, but it's seems has more pictures than information about her. I'm from Brazil, so I'd never heard of her before. It's a tottaly surprise to me, know that Emily is mentioned on school classes. This is really cool! XD
We just had it in class 'cause Washington Roeblings father was German. That's what it's about their name And when I listened to my teacher I also thought this was an interesting story about a german in America who constructed a bridge!
