Weekly Whistle: 2 Vintage-Inspired Ways to Wear Army Green


Ahh…vintage-inspired–my favorite! Who would have guessed that *wink*

At the mall the other day, I stumbled upon this army green beauty on the sale rack at Charming Charlie for 50% off. In love with the deal and vintage flare, I had to get it! But upon getting it home, I asked myself, what in the world am I going to do with a dark green dress this spring/summer?! 

Well, good thing I asked myself *wink* Although the solid frock is a little plain, it can easily be dressed up or down with the right accessories! Now, I think we need some tunes to get us in the mood for this fabulous outfit–HIT IT DJ! *wink*

Why I love it:

I love this little green dress because it is so versatile! Whether it be a night out on the town or lunch with friends, no matter the time of year, I can see this dress becoming one of my staple frocks! PLUS…I got it for a heck of a deal *wink*

VIP Quick Tip:

When wearing darker hues in the spring, it is important to add color with accessories. Slip on a colorful belt and fun pair of heels or opt for silver jewelry instead of gold because gold tends to be more fall-esque when worn with army green. Also, when dressing up army green for an evening event, layer black and sparkly/silver jewelry for an elegant yet season-friendly ensemble.

Vintage Inspired "From Work to Play" featuring All ModCloth Fashions

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

For this week’s Weekly Whistle, I styled two different looks with ModCloth’s “Work to Play” frock in navy by simply changing up the accessories. One for work…and one for play…what’s not to love! *wink*
The big inspiration behind these looks was the marvelous minty green hue in the collar and belt of the “Work to Play” dress + I wanted to play up the vintage feel of the frock with other vintage-inspired pieces–that is where the wide variety of accessories on ModCloth came in handy! Choosing just a few accessories was such a toughy! So…click here to check out other ModCloth accessories that I thought would look absolutely darling with the “Work to Play” dress!
Which outfit are you? Are you all work…or all play…or a little bit of both *wink* Leave your comment at the end of this blog post, email me here, or post a comment on the VIP Facebook page here.

Stay Fabulous,
