CHC Vintage Accessories January 2018 Review

Awe! Look at this cute little pooch card they included for me this month!

There isn’t a traditional information card or invoice included with the subscription box; you get a personalized handwritten card with styling suggestions instead. I really enjoy the personalized and thoughtful touch of this card and the handy styling tips that were included.

For years I have been on the hunt for the perfect leopard fur hats and within two months I found one at a vintage fair and this one from CHC Vintage! So blessed, am I right? I love both, but I think I actually prefer this one from CHC! The pillbox shape is perfectly structured and the fur is more of a camel toned leopard print. The top of the hat is made of a braided chenille material. The fit is perfect and I had no issues wearing it on my pumpkin head (nor did my photographer aka my dad. I got my gigantic cranium from him. He looked very stylish in it, but did not want his photo included in this review, sadly)! This hat paired gorgeously with my mustard yellow crushed velvet dress, but this would look fantastic with a black and white striped top, circle skirt, tights, and booties or with your favorite band shirt, moto jacket, and pointy toe boots.

OH. MY. GOD. BECKY, LOOK AT THIS PURSE! Seriously, though! I saw this and legit squealed with delight. This handbag has a dazzling sun ray-like design in gold and bronze shades. The purse has a thin roped strap, but could also be used as a clutch. I love the size of this purse since it is not too tiny or too big. I can easily fit some makeup, money, and other small items it in for a night out. This purse will pair fantastically with anything from a sheer black pussy bow top, mini skirt, moto jacket, and booties or with jeans, a crop top, and pointed flats. The options are endless for this stunning piece!

These vintage, crescent-shaped, dangly earrings reminded me of the 90s cult character, Xena: Warrior Princess. The material looks like a shield or part of her armor. Paired properly, these earrings will evoke Stevie Nicks (it had been too long since I mentioned good ol’ Stevie in a review) vibes as well if combined with a bell-sleeved dress and western booties or with jeans, a flowy blouse, and booties. I am extremely pleased these were included in this month’s box.

I used to be quite the sucker for Cloisonné pieces. I have quite the collection of unicorn ones I found at a flea market in Ohio years ago. The dragon design is one I often find on my hunts, but the pearl necklace this pendant hangs from makes it far more unique. The beauty of a piece like this is it can dress up a casual ensemble or look elegant with a little black dress. The options are endless!

Bold Golden Girl Statement Ring

I LOVE THIS RING! This ring is the opposite of timid, but it is not an obnoxious piece either. In addition, the ring is adjustable which is fantastic because these days I range between an 8 and 8.5. This piece pairs amazingly well with all the items included in this box and will add pizazz to your dressiest or most casual outfit. It is a true staple piece.

AS IF Jewelry Dish

This jewelry dish is channeling Cher Horowitz of Clueless tremendously well. I can see putting this by her nightstand to hold her rings next to a framed photo of Josh. This piece is definitely not a full-on Monet!

Verdict: This is my first CHC Vintage Accessories box and saying I am pleased is an understatement. I am absolutely in love with the hat, purse, ring, and earrings. I know I will get a ton of use out of those pieces in my everyday ensembles and to amp up my out on the town weekend outfits. Not only did I love the items included in this box, but I love the price as well! $55 for five accessories, a ring dish, and shipping and handling is excellent! Being able to get accessories so tailored to my style without having to leave my house and jump in thrift store bargain bins makes it a great value as well. This service saves me money and time. You can’t beat that!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Each box is curated with one of a kind accessories, so your box will likely look different than mine.

Value Breakdown:  This box is $55 for five accessories, a ring dish, and shipping and handling. Five items at $55 come up to $11 per piece. That is a heck of a value considering I sense the hat and purse would value far more than $11 in a vintage or consignment boutique!

  1. Oh my gosh, I am so loving this. You look adorable in the hat, and your makeup is on point, girl! Beautiful! But, about the sub. I’m so interested in it, do they put the year, circa, era on the all or any of the pieces? I didn’t see it mentioned in your review. To me that’s part of the fun, knowing when the piece is from. Thank you, great review and helpful pictures!

    • Awe thank you, Ingermaria, for the kind words! I am really glad you enjoyed the review. They typically do not include the era of each piece. That would be a fun detail, but I am still extremely pleased with the service otherwise.

      • OK, thanks Nicole!

  2. Accessories are awesome, your yellow velvet dress is so pretty too!

    • Thank you, Courtney S! That was an ASOS BLACK FRIDAY deal. I want to live in that dress. Haha

  3. Hello to my new favorite sub! This is exactly my style. I DO NOT need another subscription right now but I’m so excited for this! Thank you for the excellent review!

    • Susan, I am so glad you enjoyed this review! Trust Me, You will love CHC!

  4. Oh my gosh, this is all gorgeousness! I really shouldn’t be subbing to another box, but I’m so tempted.

    • I can’t blame you, Tonya. Their vintage sub is great, though! I love their vintage clothing box I also review too!

  5. You scored! Nice selection, to say the least….!

    • Noelle L, right? This box was so dreamy!!!

    • YES! I thought that too, actually! My folks had that movie on VHS when I was little! Haha

  6. I had to immediately go and subscribe to this box. I live in a small-ish town, and the vintage selection is… minimal. They did a great job on your box. I’m looking forward to seeing what they choose for me!

    • Oooh I am so excited for you, Erica T! I sense you won’t be disappointed!

  7. That beaded purse is GORGEOUS.

    If they have the time and patience to hand-write that much to each subscriber, they must have no more than seven subscribers. Either that, or they know you write for MSA, so they go the extra mile because of that.

    I think you should make it a point to mention Stevie Nicks in every review. Viva Stevie!

    • Dea, to my knowledge all boxes are super personalized. They have been styling me for a few months so they really know my tastes and we have a nice repertoire at this point. But overall, the service is a very tailored one. That is in part why I like it so much! 😊

      AND yes! Stevie 4-ever!

  8. You look amazing in the hat and so pretty in the second pic holding the purse. I am really digging all of the items.

    • Awe thank you, Channel! I really appreciate your kind words! And omg, this box was ace, right?!

  9. Looks like you hit the jackpot😆. Now I want to buy a box!

    • Katie, You totally should! CHC IS AWESOME!
