Really chic John Charles short sleeve, ankle length cocktail dress in black velvet with a raw silk skirt and decorated with gold braiding. It's tiny so I couldn't fasten it all the way on the manni, but the zipper does work so long as the dress fits. It features a high round neckline and short sleeves on the velvet bodice which are edged in the raw silk. The skirt is in the raw silk with a tulip front and the overall shape is quite pencil skirt slimline. This is such a classy style with its simple elegance.
