Chevron for Velma

Get that pinky in the air because it’s time for some afternoon tea – would you like a Scooby Snack with that?

Although I always felt it was highly unrealistic that a bunch of meddling kids were able to solve not-so-ghostly mysteries, I still loved watching old school Scooby Doo cartoons. I used to actually believe Scooby snacks were dog treats and nothing else.

My favorite character was Daphne, with her red hair, green scarf, and chic purple shift dress. Yet for this post, I decided to channel Velma, the less glam, but more intelligent female in the Scooby gang. This was my chance to give Velma a style makeover. Let’s start by ditching the baggy turtleneck sweater and pleated schoolgirl skirt.

I stumbled upon this groovy 1960s dress at a yard sale one day. The deep orange color is true to Velma’s style. The white chevron pattern adds some dimension to the dress, and is a far improvement to Velma’s drab solid orange uniform. I introduced a new color to her outfit – a pop of green in the form of a beaded necklace with a brooch pinned to it. There is nothing ruh-roh about this outfit.

Move over Daphne, there’s a new fashionable female in the Mystery Machine. You can blame this meddling stylist!
