Bill Blass Pink + Brown Silk Chiffon Gown

$ 695.00

Brand Bill Blass

Like strawberry and chocolate Neapolitan ice cream, I adore the pastel pink and deep brown color clash of this dress.

This sleeveless designer Bill Blass dress is not just a sweetly colored dream in chiffon, it's also convertible. The dress is technically sleeveless in an empire cut, swathed with grecian folds of chiffon. A single knot of sheer brown chiffon set at the center of the chest is the convertible piece, and can be worn either as a halter style around the neck, or cinched down to the shoulders, even off the shoulders. My favorite variation is with the fabric swatch worn over the head as a hood, but I love the dramatic flair a hood ads, so, no surprise that I had to try this adaptation.

As mentioned, this is an empire waisted dress, with fluttery chiffon that floats away from the body, a single ruffle of chiffon runs down the front. The dress is a maxi length with bold pink and brown color contrast.

The dress is fully lined, except for the sheer panel that wraps the shoulders and has a center back nylon coil zipper running down the back with button and loop closure over the top from the waist up.

I'm tempted to believe that this dress was most often worn with the attached fabric set off the shoulders as this is how the fabric lies most comfortably or naturally. The dress does have some issues, pulls here and there, more noticeably in the skirt than anywhere else, and discoloration to the silk of the armpits, but unless arms are raised and the armpits specifically pointed to, it isn't terribly noticeable. Please see the last five pictures for details of these issues. Please do reach out if you have additionally questions regarding this.
