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 right now.
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.
