CHC Vintage March 2018 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 March’s shipment had in it for me:

CHC Vintage March 2018 Envelope

CHC Vintage March 2018 Card Outside CHC Vintage March 2018 Card Inside

There is usually a handwritten card with some styling suggestions and notes about the era this dress is from.

1950s/1960s Era Vintage Dress

This one is fun for springtime. I have a few yellow accessories (like these shoes) and don’t get many chances to wear them, so I appreciate the opportunity. This is a very lightweight, breathable fabric (probably just cotton) that will definitely be comfortable in warm weather (it was cool and rainy the day we took these pictures).

The dress was in great shape and the zipper worked. It did have a bit of that “I’ve been in storage” aroma to it, but nothing that a little Febreze or a good washing won’t fix. There are no care instructions here – this might be handmade – so I’m going to err on the side of caution and hand wash it.

The fit was pretty good although just a tad tight around my ribcage. I was able to get it zipped all the way up on my own, though. I don’t really do the sleeveless look, but a white cardigan or shrug or something of that nature will make this one suitable for work.

Verdict: I like the dress I received from CHC Vintage this month. I thought “90s Grunge” suited me as a style, but “vintage prints” is proving to be just as fun (and even more work-appropriate). I don’t always do well with the styling service subscriptions, but CHC Vintage just “gets” me.

There is a generous exchange policy if something doesn’t fit or has some other issue (I once got a dress with a broken zipper, for example, and the exchange was super simple). I don’t regularly shop at consignment or vintage stores, so I don’t know how this price compares to what you would see somewhere like that. However, I would definitely pay $35 or more for a wear-to-work dress, and I got one here, so this subscription is worth it to me from that perspective.

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.

Value Breakdown: This box costs $35 and I got one vintage dress.

That dress looks amazing on you! Stunning.

yurena_sar

This dress is soooo beautiful!! Aaargh I wish the company would have more of them so that I could buy one. And I agree with what the other reviewers said, it looks great on you.

I just noticed CHC Vintage Clothing ships to other countries -yay!- so I am already considering a subscription 🙂

Caligirl

That is the perfect dress for you!

Christine

I agree–you look simply stunning!

Shannon

I just got don saying the same thing to Anna about another subscription, but I only speak the truth. That dress was made for you. I myself am a rather pale lady and avoid beiges, but this one looks beautiful with your skin tone.

Ragan

I think I can brighten it up with some accessories. I actually have a lot more yellow beads than I realized (I recently sorted by color) so maybe I will make a few bracelets or something.

Both you and Nicole always look so “put together” and nicely-styled. This gorgeous dress is no exception. Lovely! I think I’ve resisted about as long as I can. The price is pretty hard to resist for such great dresses.

Dea

The lengthy handwritten notes to each MSA reviewer that this company sends out make me think that they don’t have many subscribers. Writing 20 Christmas cards once a year is plenty fatiguing for me.

Tonya

I’m a “regular” (read “non-reviewer”) subscriber, and my shipments always include a nice hand-written note. Whether the company has five subscribers or 500 subscribers doesn’t matter to me; they have great customer service and I appreciate the personal touch. 🙂

Nicole Couch

Hi Dea! I’m Nicole of CHC Vintage. I don’t usually comment on the reviews, but I did want to add, since I’m the only one that has this information, that our company is growing by leaps and bounds right now, and I don’t sleep much in order to write these handwritten notes. LOL! Personal styling is what our company is all about and in my opinion what separates us from our competitors. We want to make vintage pieces feel accessible to all women and teach them how to create their own personal style. Although it is a daunting task, it is one that will always be a part of the CHC experience, like a note from a friend.

Dea

That is very nice of your company, Nicole! The personal touch is certainly appreciated, no question about it.

Bella01

Nicole I think it’s excellent customer service what you do. I’m impressed when ever I see Ragan’s review. I would be your customer for life. When I worked at Bloomingdales and Nordstrom’s Cosmetic counter I would do the same to my clients. And my clients followed me and sent their friends to me. It makes a big difference. Great service Nicole. And the clothes you pick out for Ragan too are beautiful. Wow, she always looks stunning.

Danielle

That dress looks great on you!
