The Little Green Dress

The Little Green Dress

Happy St. Patrick's Day from your little Irish friend Michelle!

Wardrobe staples are a necessity! And every woman probably has a handful of little black dresses in their wardrobes. One for every occasion, time of year. (...and let's be honest, time of the month. Just say YAS to Spanx.) 

But how about the perfect little green dress? 

I love this vintage inspired green dress from UK clothing shop, Voodoo Vixen. I purchased it back in December for my husband's birthday party from Unique Vintage, one of my favorite vintage inspired boutiques! I with they had a storefront here in New York City. 

The Voodoo Vixen dress has a spaghetti strap sweetheart bodice, with a shimmery lining that’s darted and seamed. I love the illusion neckline with faux buttons! It comes with an adjustable belt, and the zipper is located on the left side. The dress does not include crinoline, so I added a black petticoat underneath the dress. During Christmas, I added a red petticoat for some festive flare! 

This gorgeous green frock is perfect for holiday parties in December as well as a festive get together on St. Patrick's Day. But let's face it, this little number is great to go swing dancing any time of the year. It's flattering, pretty, with lots of movement.

I feel like a million bucks every time I wear it!
