that pink dress!

i gasped and my mouth dropped open when this dress came on screen. i took a screencap right away, then paused it, took another one, then kept it paused and thought. i thought about how that dress was so beautiful and how it seemed fancy and expensive. and i wondered if it was in fact expensive, could a secretary afford it? would she have to save up for a few nice work dresses? or did she make enough money? and maybe the dress was actually cheap, and would be found today at h+m or something,but just looks expensive to me because it's designed so well and is vintage to my eyes? i plan on researching this to out.
dream job = costume department on mad men early 60's is my 2nd favorite time period for clothing.
