Fantastic 1980s Bill Tice Burgundy Jersey Halter Dress w Metallic Gold Inset

I have had sleeved and one shoulder versions of this Bill Tice dress that had the same gold lame detail applied to the jersey but this is the first time I have seen this exact design. It is made of a liquid nylon jersey that feels amazing on and has the added bonus of traveling very well. 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 ready to go. The dress is cut to be  loose and easy over the body. It is suspended from the shoulders by tow straps made of the same jersey fabric. The neckline scoops across and it is gathered around that fabulous curving insets of his signature gold fabric. The back is a panel of elastic for even more added comfort. The dress gathers up and into the detailing at the front  and this allows it to be more to the open and loose side around the waist and hips as the jersey drapes down and around your body.  A slit runs up on one side and this allows a bit of leg to show when you walk or sit. It is pure ease mixed with sexiness. Excellent condition with a note below

Unlined and slips on to wear. The easy fit should allows it to work on a variety of sizes. There is a loop at the base of each strap where it looks like someone took it up a touch and a small fold on the inside of the side seams where it was taken in a touch there as well. It would be easy to reverse. The fabric has a bit of stretch. The easy cut should allow it to fit a range of sizes.
