1981 Bill Tice Red One Shoulder Jersey Dress w Gold Lame Flower Detailing

I have had this dress in both a peach and a black version in the shop before and was super happy to find yet another colour. Versions of Tice's one shoulder pieces sit in the closet of countless celebrities like Rachel Zoe, Nicole Richie and even my own. This is one of those dresses that you know is going to work every time you put it on. I love it.

These are just the perfect, easy to wear and easy to travel with jersey caftan feeling dress. It is made from that liquid jersey you started yo see in the late seventies and the fabric feels amazing on the body. The colour is a great shade of deep red burgundy that is flattering on almost every skin tone. It is super light in weight and it is the kind of piece you can throw into your suit case and slip on with either flats or heels when you reach some far off destination and be perfectly ready to go. The inner dress is long and straight cut and then this is topped by a wrapped looser overlay that is cut on a curving angle. A slit runs up the inner side of the inner dress so you get a flash of leg when you walk or sit. At the top of the shoulder there is a large knotted flower detail. Both the flower and the neckline are edged and accented by gold lame ribbon. It is just gorgeous. Excellent condition.

Unlined and slips on to wear. The easy fit should allows it to work on a variety of sizes. The fabric has a bit of stretch. The easy cut should allow it to fit a range of sizes. Perhaps a faint mark here and there but nothing that shows on
