Vintage IS recycling, and to emphasize that point, I have some green items (so they're green in both
ways) for your consideration.
50s frothy formal in Wedgwood green with black velvet trim:
a 60s vintage pear green raincoat by Misty Harbor:
a 1960s pale turquoise green wool jacket, carefully homemade:
and a 1950s dress made from a striking print from Associated American Artists:
These are available on eBay
Green is the Vintage Fashion Guild's Fashion Parade theme of the week, and you will find more vintage green to love at the VFG
