CHC Vintage Clothing Subscription Box Review – May 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

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.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This review is of the 90’s Grunge Dress, $35 a month, box. 

The Subscription Box: CHC Vintage

The Cost: $35/month (save with longer subscriptions)

The Products: One vintage dress curated just for you (after choosing size and style, there are additional questions like what colors would you never wear, what occasions would you want the dress for, what lengths you prefer, etc.).

Ships to: U.S. for free and Worldwide for an additional cost

There isn’t an information card with this subscription since the items are vintage and selected according to your preferences. However, there was a nice card with a personalized note and a discount code for the CHC Vintage shop.

1990s Vintage Print Dress

I didn’t calculate a value for this dress because it is vintage. But, it was in excellent shape (no holes, no tears, no fabric pilling, it was clean, and the zipper in the back worked perfectly).

It fits pretty well (the size choices are a little weird and I went with XS/S based on the measurements given on the sign-up page, which turned out to be right for me) and I love the bright colors and bold print. I had asked for work-appropriate dresses on the preferences screen and, for me, this is work appropriate. I’ll probably wear a shrug because I don’t usually do the sleeveless thing (and because the office can get cold), but this is a good weight for summer in Georgia.

I am not sure I’m getting a “grunge” vibe from this dress, but I like it a lot and that is more important to me than anything else – it is something I can, and will, wear. (And the era is right, anyway.)

Verdict: The dress I received from CHC Vintage was an excellent fit for my personal style. I feel like it really was personally curated, especially with the handwritten note, and I know I would gladly pay $35 for a similar dress in a store, so I feel like the value was there, too.

What do you think of CHC Vintage? What style would you choose?

My Subscription Addiction will never accept payment in exchange for a review, but will accept a box at no cost to provide honest opinions on the box. This post may contain affiliate/referral links.

  1. It’s a beautiful dress but it reminds me of an unfinished adult coloring book page.

  2. Ragan, you are made to wear dresses! Everything you model looks beautiful on you. This definitely feels 90s (though not grunge) to me. In fact, my college graduation outfit in 1991 (from Express, natch) had a similar print and colors.

    • Thanks.

      I don’t even remember what I wore for college graduation (in 2000).

  3. Definitely not grunge but it looks great on you! Vintage is 25+ years and antique is 50+ years. I was in high school in the 90’s and still have stuff from them, I can’t believe it is vintage!

    • Most of my clothes (except some t-shirts) from the 1990s are gone — gained and lost weight too many times in between and purged my closet multiple times in the interim. (I was HS class of 1996 and got my first bachelor’s degree in 2000. I wore a lot of plaid and corduroy…)

  4. Wait, the 90s are vintage now?!?

    • That makes me feel so old 🤔

  5. That dress looks great on you! And the era is spot on. It reminds me of some of the things in my closet from that decade…but I refuse to believe I’m old enough for my clothes to be considered vintage. 😉

  6. I’m so old that I don’t think of 90s as vintage.

    • I was taken back by that!

  7. Gorgeous and fits you perfectly!

    • Agreed, love this!
