CHC Vintage November 2017 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.

This is a little fancier than the usual selections I get, but it is appropriate for the season – this is nice enough to wear to a dressy holiday function and yet the solid color means you can accessorize in a ton of different ways to dress it up or down or just to change the look. (The necklace in the photo was a gift from CHC Vintage a few months back when I had to do an exchange.) This was super long on me (I’m about 5’5”) but with some platform wedges, it was safely off the ground. The zipper worked great (always a potential issue with vintage clothes). Also, a regular strapless bra worked just fine with this.

Most importantly, this was comfortable. Sometimes nicer dresses are just not so comfy, and I definitely appreciated the fit and comfort here. I had a surgery about four weeks ago and putting this on was the first time I had been out of a nightgown or t-shirt and sweats in almost a month (around my waist I am wearing an abdominal binder for support, which you can kind of see especially in the picture of the back of the dress).

Verdict: I really like the dress I received from CHC Vintage this month. It fits well and is comfortable. Plus, I actually didn’t already have anything appropriate for holiday parties or functions since I lost 45 pounds last year and had to get rid of most of my old clothes. I feel like this subscription is definitely worth the $35 a month, too. The quality and condition of the dress this month were great, it fits nicely, and they ship in Priority Mail flat rate boxes, which eats up quite a chunk of the $35 as it is.

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