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.

CHC Vintage December 2017 Review

This subscription is customized based on your size and preferences from a survey you fill out after subscribing, so everyone receives something different each month. But that’s part of the fun! Let’s see what December’s shipment had in it for me:

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 Dress

The plaid in this is hot pink and green. I am all about hot pink lately so that is perfect. The style is a little different from what I usually get but I definitely think the dress is cute. Fit-wise, it is right on the limit for me around the ribcage. Unfortunately, that meant that every time I took a breath, the front would pop open! (So sorry if I look stiff in the photos, I was holding my breath.)

I didn’t exchange this one though because I do like it and I know how I can make it work. The front closure has both buttons and snaps. The snaps are small and can’t hold it closed on their own, and the buttons are just a bit too small for the buttonholes. So what I need to do is switch out the buttons for some larger ones, which should ease the pressure on the snaps. (I could always get some heavier-duty snaps, too, if that seems like it will help.) Also, I think if I wear a soft bra instead of one with an underwire, there will be a little less girth around my ribcage.

The back is pretty plain but that’s OK since my hair would be covering it anyway. I am thinking I would like a green cardigan to go with this, and then either green or hot pink shoes (obviously it is too cold for sandals right now, I’m just wearing those because we had to take photos inside due to the weather).

Verdict: I like the dress I received from CHC Vintage this month. There were some issues with the front closure, but nothing I can’t fix with a needle and thread and a package of slightly larger buttons. I know hot pink can be a controversial clothing color but it is a color I have been really into lately, and I think it works in this plaid print. If you are not so inclined to alter clothes yourself, CHC Vintage has a generous exchange program, so if a dress doesn’t work out for you one month, they’ll help you find one that will. That makes it worth the $35 monthly, for me.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you subscribe today? No, every box is different based on your style and size preferences.

Ragan stumbled across My Subscription Addiction in late 2013 and immediately subscribed to way too many beauty boxes. She's now focused on boxes for her cats and dog, vegan/vegetarian food boxes, and craft subscriptions (and she didn't give up beauty boxes entirely).

The vintage dresses just fit her. She has an old world beauty anyway.

You look fabulous in all the dresses! I wanted to try the shirt and jewelry option but I don’t think it is available anymore.
