Finding Feminine Inspiration Part VI

The Balcony, by Manet
This is an extraordinary painting, one of Manet's masterpieces, but it's usually singled for commentary because the painterly genius and psychological messages expressed within it, not because of the beautiful dresses worn by the two ladies! Nonetheless. . .
The dress worn by Berthe Morisot (sitting at left) in this painting is simply gorgeous. I especially like the sleeves...
The wedding dress of my dreams, while not an exact replica of this dress, would certainly bear several similarities to it.
