CHC Vintage Clothing Subscription Box Review – August 2017
CHC Vintage is a vintage fashion subscription box. Choose a dress box or a t-shirt and jewelry box. For the dress box, you can also choose from categories like “90s Grunge,” “Bohemian,” “Vintage Prints,” “Romantic,” and “Minimalist.” This is a review of the dress box, “90s Grunge” style (I was in high school and college in the 1990s). You can see some examples of what the CHC Vintage folks consider to belong to each category on the sign-up page.

1990s Vintage Maxi Dress
I didn’t calculate a value for this dress because it is vintage. But, it is in excellent shape (no holes, no tears, no fabric pilling, etc.). It also fits pretty well (there is a bit of stretch to the fabric). In the card I got last month, it said they typically catered to my preference for work wear (you fill out a survey when you sign up), but that if I requested it, I could get something more “grunge” like. So I emailed them last month and asked for something a little different this month!
This dress is wild! I don’t think I’ve ever worn animal print before. I had to pair it with my black Doc Martens (though that would work better if I was an inch or two taller; this was pretty long on me). I wanted to wear some fishnets, too, but I couldn’t find any in my closet (I did own several pairs at one point in time). This was definitely an undergarment challenge. I gave up and didn’t wear a bra at all for the pictures (I can do that because I’m only a 34B and this was opaque) but probably would get one of those sticky ones for leaving the house. Also, I had to dig through my drawer for some super low-rise underwear because this goes really far down in the back.
Verdict: I really like the dress I received from CHC Vintage this month. It is not something I’d have thought to choose for myself, but I had a lot of fun putting it on for pictures. I definitely think I need to get a pair of fishnets to go with it. And then think of somewhere fun to wear it – it seems like too much of a statement for a Target run (I need to get out more…).
