Condition: Fabulous condition with a couple of things to report:
- The bolero jacket is not so pink as the dress, it has lost its intensity and now looks more white than pink. One of the buttons is missing.
- The dress is in fabulous condition with a tiny repair on the bust/strap (view photo). IT two small yellowish marks between the pleats of the skirt (view photo), not remarkable. The lining has a yellowish stain in the left side (view photo) but it is not showing on the dress.
