This is an amazing piece! It's a vintage pantsuit from the 1970s with a gorgeous bright and vivid paisley print. At first, it looks like a maxi dress, but a slit in the front reveals long black flared pants underneath. It has a V cut neckline and back. It closes with a nylon zipper and a black waist belt featuring two gold X enclosures at the front.
