detail

The past few days I've been helping out with reorganizing all the files for one case -- the capital gang case that I talk about sometimes. That one case's files took up an entire back room in the office! Unfortunately, the attorneys just decided to rent out the back room to a solo practitioner, so we had to clear out that make-shift file room and move the files elsewhere. 
Anyway, I picked up this sweater from Target during their last 20% off sale just to get the free shipping, but when it arrived I was pleasantly surprised.
Cardigan: Target, XS (here)
T-shirt: TJ Maxx
Jeans: Forever 21
Shoes: Payless
Belt: Forever 21
Necklace: Lord & Taylor
Bracelets: John Hardy, Unknown, Fossil
 The sweater is a true bright white, which is definitely a color I needed in my cardigan collection, as my last white sweater was ruined by a pink highlighter (damn you, law school!). It's also pretty fitted overall as an XS, whereas many Target cardigans can be boxy. I love that it is a thin material and a perfect weight for summer (although this could also be a negative, because it is obvious the thread count is low). Lastly, I love the petal-like detail. A better picture below:
Seriously, how pretty is that? The only negative that I can think of is, I have NO idea how these petal things will come out if I wash the sweater. The sweater is machine washable, but I'm worried about the petals falling off or something because they are only held on by a thin stitch. Maybe hand wash? I've never hand washed anything in my life (thanks to mom and grandma), do you have any suggestions? Are there any tips I should know before I hand wash something? Or do you think something like this could withstand a normal wash and the dryer?
I also love this belt I got from Forever 21 a few weeks ago! The fit is SO tiny and is a perfect natural waist belt for me. In this picture I'm wearing it on the smallest hole, but after lunch I had to move it to the largest hole (fatty, haha!).
