This mini shirt dress, original brand ex.life.en, has a print of white, grey and light blue bubbles of varying sizes on a black background. The print is unusual for 1990s style, a geometric/abstract instead of floral one, a kind of mod-grunge combination. But the style is typical for mini dresses from that period, with rows of fine darts defining the waistline and the skirt flaring out in a flattering A-line. It would look great paired with skinny jeans or lean-fitting flared jeans, and even layered over a thin, long-sleeved T-shirt. Paired with opaque tights and boots or chunky oxfords, it would capture the spirit of the early 1990s.
The dress is in excellent vintage condition. It has a collar and three-button placket, with original variegated black and clear buttons. It has a hidden side zip and belt loops that could be removed, but that would also fit a belt of up to 1 ½ inches wide. The woven fabric is cotton with some stretch, probably lycra. The size label is missing, but it would fit a size small, from 2-6.
