Expectations 2

The Second in a series of posts illustrating why the label Alternative is too tight a fit for Sn@tch designs. The point of the series is not that the label is inaccurate or insulting – just that Sn@tch has a wider range of clothing than will fit in that label. For example, for this outfit, you could, if you like, pull out the Retro or Vintage label.

If you spend more than 10 minutes at Sn@tch, you will discover that Ivey has a thing for floral prints. A lot of the time you will see that love expressed in rich floral brocades that can be classified as Gothic – depending on how they are styled. On the other hand, there are some occasional flashes of pure romanticism such as this recent release of summer sun dresses in the loveliest of French floral prints.

With the piping on the seams and the soft cotton lace, this dress has such a retro feeling that I reached for these lovely pumps from Ingenue.

Vintage jewelery from Dark Mouse continues the floral inspiration and a retro updo from Donna Flora adds to the concept.

The makeup from Rockberry, however, is thoroughly contemporary. The point it to create a vintage look – not a costume. And of course, the elements are all flexible enough to flit comfortably back and forth from vintage to contemporary without any temporal distortions.
