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.

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 some styling suggestions.

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…).

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

"Choose either a Vintage Dress Subscription or Vintage T-Shirt and Jewelry Box. Every piece is one of a kind, on trend Vintage."

Wow. Awesome dress. You look fantastic! I enjoyed reading your review and love how you styled the dress. The whole look is just perfect.

Jane

I think the dress looks great on you!! And it was fun to see you in something different than the usual vintage dresses.

SquirrelyGirl

You look amazing in this dress!!!

Ramona

Love the fun & sexy vibe of this dress! You totally rock it!

MzBev

I LOVE that dress. The back of it? Just wow! You look amazing in it!
It shows in your face even, that you are feeling it! 🙂

Marion

That dress looks AMAZING on you! And I love the way you’ve styled it with the boots & dark lipstick.

Michelle

So no one else thinks she looks 5 months pregnant in this? I am not trying to be snarky at all.

Amanda

Wow. Not okay.

Ks

You are rude. Whether you’re referring to the dress, the body, or the trees. Ragan clearly stated she likes the dress. The commenters are thrilled by the dress. It’s not okay to say someone looks pregnant under any circumstances.

She looks like a grunge queen and that dress is hot.

Thea

If you have to follow up a comment with “not trying to be snarky”, you know what you said was rude. That being sais, nope. Only thing I thought was “wow, that dress is cool and she looks amazing in it.”

Amy BB

Why do people think it is ok to comment on other people’s bodies?

BTW, I think this dress looks banging on you!!

Ragan

I have a giant fibroid right now. I think that’s what you’re seeing…

Rhawk

No Ragan, it’s not you, it’s the dress. It looks like that at your stomach, at your knee level and right below your bum. It’s the stretch of the material I believe.

Lynsey

I thought that too lol but i think it’s the stretch on the dress

Kate

I am so getting a Shania Twain vibe from this!

Cassandra

Wow! The back is so fun!

Jen

Love this dress!! It looks great on you!! This makes me want to subscribe

julie
