Physical description
The A-line shift of black vinyl is painted on the front with circles and wavy lines in purple, white, red and blue, appliqued with a white slashed plastic rectangle and a red slashed plastic triangle covered in clear plastic. A zip fastener runs along the proper left side. A white plastic tubing length wraps around the dress, threaded through two silver metallic rings attached at each side of the waist.
