Bill Blass is our current obsession. We can't seem to buy enough Bill Blass ultra American chic dresses and evening gowns from the 1970s and 1980s. We love that you are in agreement with us about Blass, too. At least four of our clients are attending the Inauguration in vintage Blass gowns from Decades. About this Blass: it's a black bugle beaded fitted gown with a sexy center cutout trimmed in velvet that also runs below the bust line. Solving the problem of what necklace is wear is an attached black jet bead necklace that rises from the top of the velvet trimmed cut-out and goes around the neck. Wisely, it is rather long so it can accommodate different length torsos or can be removed entirely and the evening gown can be worn strapless with your own necklace. The cut of the dress is incredibly flattering and can accommodate a generous bust (32DD or 34D? Hello! This dress if for you) and manages to hold you in place without looking like a Vivid Porn Star (we can confirm this as said was tested on 32DD actress who generously offered her bosom for our "scientific" test that proved this is a Blass for boobs!)
