Vintage Metallic Lame Tunic Mini Dress  

With the recent increase of sheer designs trending on the runway for this season that are meant to show off everything, this dress feels like it could have just stepped off the runway today. The impact this would have had in the 1980s and the girl who had the guts to wear it are beyond my comprehension. The dress' sensuality is enhanced by the fabric choice, which is accentuated by an abstract metallic silk lame flower pattern in tones of metallic pink, gold, and marina blue that shimmer and shine in the light. The outfit skims over the body while still feeling at ease and seductive on. The excesses of the late 80s is in full play this season and this piece of fashion history is the perfect party piece for your wardrobe.

Can be worn with shorts or layered over a black stretch mini, or worn as a tunic.  This is very beautiful piece of after dark wear that is perfect for holiday parties and evening wear for your next special event. CInch in with the stretch elastic belt should you wish to make it a smaller and less of a loose fit or pair with our black Y S L Style cord tassel belt and this seasons platforms for ultra studio 4 glamour

Two black shoulder pads add even more sharpness and an 80s vibe, and the sleeves are pleated to create more fluff at the shoulder

Size Medium, so approx a 12/14 can be worn by sizes 8 10 12 depending on your preferred styling and dues to the belt as it is stretch elastic and cinched the dress in to make it smaller but a size or two, our mannequin in a size 6/8 and is 5ft 7

The Tunic has a small discrete fault to the left shoulder and has been factored in to the reduction however the fabric is busy enough for it not be be noticed and it can be corrected by an experienced seamstress
