CHC Vintage Clothing Subscription Box Review – May 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 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.
