Very good pre-owned condition - some itty bitty pinpricks if you hold it up to the light and some subtle discoloration on the back - we suspect this was originally a lighter color and dyed by a previous owner. Fabric covered belt shows some wear but nothing terrible. Would 100% wear it like this (in fact, this came from Caryn's personal collection and she's worn it dozens of times and received nothing but compliments, no one ever noticed the marks on the skirt).
