A hidden eye-candy

I discovered this stunning arrangement in the window of a small and hidden antique shop while walking around. The first item that caught my eye was the caftan in this beautiful shade of rose. Normally, a caftan is much longer, but it seems that someone cut it to that length. Isn´t this fabric to die for? I fell in love with the embroidery and every single detail. As you can see, a pomegranate is used as decoration, too. In many cultures the pomegranate is a symbol for wealth, so this fruit appears in many old paintings for example. I would love to own a vintage caftan like this one, in exact the same pale shade.
