Blue and white gets me every time

Blue and white porcelain print is a weakness of mine. When I saw this dress in Target last month, I had to have it. No matter how much I tried to talk myself out of it, even though I hate the little bow drawstring waist, there is just something about the blue and white print that I adore.

  1. Is it weird that when I saw that dress at Target it reminded me of you? The colors I just knew you would love!

  5. I used to have a little tea set when I was a little girl with this print on it. I feel the same way and I think this was a great choice! I personally like the little drawstring waist and I LOVE that you paired this dress with the blazer and hat!

  11. Haha! I'm always drawn to white and blue porcelain in thrift stores. I bought a little vase for 50 cents last month, ha ha
    Fashion-wise, I love that dress! But I agree, the drawstring is a little weird, haha :)

  13. I am not sure if it is good or bad that we don't have Target in Germany... bad because I see all the great clothes at a budget, good because I'd spend too much money there ;-)

    It is a wonderful dress, Lyddie!

  14. I think it's a beautiful dress and i like how you styled it.
    I do not have a problem with the drawstring waist, however you can always cover it with a belt.

  27. I was totally scooping out that dress today in Target. It was the drawstring waist that held me back. I have another maxi dress with that I really do hate it, what is worse is that the drawstring is white on that dress

  32. What's not to love about this print? I reminds me so much of the Valentino collection from Fashion Week, which I absolutely adored. And although normally I would also hate the drawstring bow, somehow on this dress it works - or maybe I just love the print so much that I don't even care it's there :)
