Condition: Fabulous condition with a couple of small stains: one yellowish stain which is quite hard to see right under the waist line (view photo). One tiny yellowish spot in the front buttons of the bolero (view photo). A couple of tiny yellowish spots at the bottom of the skirt (view last photo). I think they can be removed with a good cleaning product, but they are really no visible anyway! No holes, rips, etc.
