Vintage 1973 early disco era full length dress and matching jacket. Black and white/silver lurex fabric. One piece empire waist halter top dress with great draping. Bodice has black and white/silver stripes on the diagonal. Halter top secures with ties at neck. Nearly backless with metal zipper closure. Jacket has notched lapel, two patch pockets and a gathered sleeve at shoulder for shape. I know the exact date because I wore it myself in 1973 when I was Master of Ceremonies of my high school Variety Show. Went all the way to Waukegan, IL to get this special outfit to wear for the show. Big deal back then. Also wore it to a very unfortunate winter formal:)
