CHC Vintage Clothing Subscription Box Review – September 2017

CHC Vintage September 2017 Women's Clothing Subscription Box

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.

Note: This is actually a review of a replacement dress. The first dress I received wouldn’t zip up over my back at all. The zipper wasn’t broken, it was just made for someone with a super narrow torso (I usually buy XS in shirts…). Anyway, I contacted CHC Vintage through their Cratejoy contact link and got a response within a few hours that they would send out a replacement dress. (I did pay to send the original dress back though I am the one who offered to do that.) They sent this necklace as a gift for my trouble:

This is pretty cool and something I will totally wear. I tend to buy a lot of shirts and dresses in solid colors just so I can show off jewelry without things being too busy.

1990s Vintage Maxi 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, etc.). It also fit pretty well (there was a bit of stretch to the fabric). You can see a close-up of the embroidery (and possibly the outline of my Fitbit attached to my bra) here:

Although there were some styling suggestions in the card, I didn’t have an appropriate cardigan so I chose a different accessory (something I totally purchased during the 1990s and have kept around all that time and yes, Angus thought this was the best thing in the world):

Verdict: I really like the dress I received from CHC Vintage this month. It fits well and is comfortable and if I get the right cardigan I can totally wear it to work. This one can work for pretty much any occasion with the right accessories. I am just tall enough (5’5”) to make this one work with low heels and the slit up one side is relatively conservative (only goes up to my knee or so).

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

  1. Wow! Beautiful on you…and very sexy!!!

  2. I love seeing your style in clothing. I remember once MSA posted something about a corporate goth box. Any idea if/when that will come into fruition because I’d be pretty stoked about that if it does happen.

    Please mind my 90’s vernacular. ’90s suburban kid from California. ‘Nuff said.

    • I am going to be reviewing Corporate Goth but I haven’t received my first one yet. Because of the way they do things (ordering from vendors after they have your sizes), you sign up one month and your first box ships at the end of the next month. So my first one should be in the mail anytime now.

  3. Love this dress on you! I had a very similar one with blue flowers in high school in the ’90s. Will definitely keep an eye on this one.

  4. Love this dress! You look fantastic!

  5. Vintage dresses… Hum, are these dresses new and never worn, or are they more like dresses from the thrift store that are bought and resold for the $35 a month? Very interested..

  6. Oooh, tempting! I already have a zillion vintage dresses for any possible occasion though, along with a giant vintage hat collection. 🙂 But $35 for a good condition vintage dress that fits is very nice!

  7. Eek, I just realized the tag is still on the dress.


  8. Ragan, I LOVE your vintage clothing reviews, you look amazing!

  9. I bet Angus loved it. I have to keep my feathers and furs pieces (yes I have some vintage ones) locked up or my Louie will dig it out to carry through the house and play with.

    Love that dress on you.

    • Angus ate one of the feathers. (However, I know it passed all the way through from when I scooped the litter box a few days later.)
