DescriptionSequined mini-dress with re-created candy wrappers as the main theme. The brightly colored, tank style dress has realistically depicted (although larger than normal size) candy wrappers, including Lifesavers, Chiclets, Bazooka, and Cracker Jack, in sequins on the front. The back of the dress simply has red sequins. A red trim runs around the neck, shoulders, back, and zipper seams.
