We have all heard of Quality Control or Quality Assurance but I now propose a new one for clothing called Print Control. It can be disheartening to receive an item with a bad print layout whenever I order online. If I am fortunate to be in the actual store, I will always dig through the racks to find the desired item in the best shape. Yes, I am picky but sometimes I look at a layout with such a poor design and think, come on!
Even my seven-year-old spotted the one lack of print on my Anthropologie Provencal blouse by Maple. I asked her what was wrong with the blouse in question. Mommy brag alert...She is an artist with a good eye. Anyway, she pointed out that there were no flowers on the top part.
Luckily I wanted the next size up which gave me another chance at good print placement. The next one I received was better, but it sure does not look like the one pictured on the website.
My thought was maybe it could be saved with a floral necklace which brought to mind my old Kenneth Jay Lane flower necklace from QVC. I am a super fan of Kenneth Jay Lane and I love to get use out of my costume jewelry. A necklace with lavenders and pinks would be even better but I think this worked.
