Vintage Black Velvet Rhinestone Mini Cocktail Dress XS

This is a gorgeous vintage mini cocktail dress from the 1980s made by Positively Ellyn that has a classy, timeless design.  The the material is a jet black rayon velvet that is very soft to the touch, and the dress is fully lined in black polyester.  The bust of the dress is studded in clear rhinestones, giving the dress an elegant sparkle.  The dress is sleeveless with spaghetti straps, and it has a sweetheart neckline.  The dress is short, and it has a fitted wiggle cut.  It closes with a zipper down the back.

The tag labels this a size 6, but vintage sizes do tend to run smaller than modern sizes, so this dress might be closer to a modern size 2/4.  The actual measurements are as follows:

Bust: 16.5" across, underarm to underarm (33" around)
Natural Waist: 13.5" across (27" around.  Measured at the narrowest part of the bodice.)
Hips: 17.5" across (35" around)
36" from the top of the straps to the hem.  27" from the underarm to the hem

Note: There is no stretch to the material, so please leave yourself room for comfort of movement.  All measurements were taken with the item laying flat. The flat measurements were doubled to give an approximate measurement around. 

Condition: This item is in EXCELLENT condition for its age.  I did notice that the straps have been shortened in the back, but the original material is still there if you need to let them back down.  This alteration is not visible at all from the outside.

The large majority of the items in my store arevintage, and therefore pre-owned.  I do my best to only put items up forsale that are in very good to excellent vintage condition, and I will list anymajor flaws that I notice.  However, most vintage clothing has been aroundfor several decades or more, and it may have some minor snags in the fabric,the occasional loose thread or other minimal signs of wear.  Vintage itemsmay also have raw seams that have not been serged.  By purchasing, you areaccepting that these items are used and may not be 100% perfect. However, ifyou feel I have overlooked a major flaw, please let me know!


I personally have a SMOKE FREE AND PET FREE HOME. I won't sell a piece of clothing if I notice a smoke smell on it from a previousowner.  I have no way of knowing if the original owner of the clothing hadpets, but I will use a lint roller to remove any fuzz or stray hair Inotice.  Because most of what I sell is vintage, an item may have been instorage for quite a few years, so I always recommend you wash or dry clean youritem before wearing it.



I value my customers and want them to have a positiveexperience in my store, so I leave positive feedback shortly after I'vereceived payment.   If for some reason you have a problem, pleaseCONTACT ME before leaving negative or neutral feedback, and I will do my bestto help you with your concerns!
