Condition
Condition:The First:Overall condition is good with some discoloration at each underarm.

The Bolero is in very good condition with some minor embroidery threads popped on right shoulder. The Second:Overall condition is fair with several small holes along the hemline and a small repair on right front shoulder near neckline. The Third:Overall condition of the dress is very good with a small snag at front right in gray satin near purple trim. There is also light soiling near neck line on front right. The Bolero is in good condition with a small area on back left neckline where sequins are missing.

The stated overall condition of the lot is based on the assumption that the wear is consistent with age and use. As everything is sold 'as is', we suggest that you request a more detailed condition report and additional photo. This can be obtained via the INQUIRE button or by email at couturecr@lesliehindman.com. Condition is a matter of opinion and should not be treated as a statement of fact.
