If I had just seen it on the website I probably would not have bought it, but in the store the color is muted and not so loud. The embroidered detail is also pleasing in a retro way.
I do have an obsession with the perfect white blouse. I love finding just the right one, but have a terrible tendency to ruin them...either stain, washing/drying damage, iron, rip...you name it. Murphy's Law, right? Let's hope that nothing goes awry with these babies...both from Urban Outfitters (Knock on wood).
The first Lyell blouse I would call the 'Holy Grail' of white blouses...Peter pan collar, puff sleeves, tucks...hallelujah!
