Unique Vintage February 2018 Review

You never quite know what you’re going to get with this subscription. It could be a party dress or one that you could wear to work. Let’s see what I got this month:

There isn’t an information card with this subscription. There was a card asking you to share your information on social media.

A couple of notes:

(1) This is the February shipment. Unique Vintage changed the way they do billing and my package came super late compared to previous months, as a result.

(2) With respect to billing, instead of auto-billing your credit card every month, Unique Vintage will now send you an email. If you want a dress that month, you’ll click through the email and pay and they’ll ship it out to you. If you don’t want a dress that month, simply ignore the email. What is nice about this: (a) if your credit card number changes or you want to use a different card, you don’t have to arrange for them to call you at billing time but you can just enter the appropriate information at check-out, (b) you can now use Amazon pay, and (c) there’s really no reason to cancel because it’s opt-in (instead of opt-out like JustFab) so you can just ignore the emails permanently if you want.

Unique Vintage 1950s Light Pink Delores Swing Dress with Sleeves

Unique Vintage 1950s Light Pink Delores Swing Dress with Sleeves – Retail Value $88

I like this a lot. I’ve been going through a pink phase lately and, while hot pink is still my favorite, lighter pink tones are growing on me. This fits wonderfully (there is a little bit of stretch to the fabric so it feels great around the waist) and the style is something I can totally wear to work. It’s a good color for spring and I can make some jewelry to go with it; I recently went on a hot-pink-vintage-bead-buying binge.

Here is a view of the back. This was easy to zip on my own (no help required), which makes it even better for work.

I know the skirt is a little wrinkled and I’m open for suggestions there. This came super wrinkled and the label says DO NOT IRON. I tried putting it in the dryer on low with some towels and a damp washcloth, and that sort of helped (I didn’t leave it long as you’re not supposed to put it in the dryer at all). I also tried hanging it in the bathroom while I was taking a shower and that sort of helped as well. But I feel like I could do a better job, I’m just out of ideas.

Verdict: The dress I received has a retail price of $88, which I think is a great value. It is new merchandise as always (a new style and not a closeout). This is comfortable and work-appropriate, and the style suits me as well.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, all boxes ship out at the beginning of each month so you will receive the April shipment.

Value Breakdown: This box costs $57 including shipping and I received a dress that retails for $88. That is a savings of about 35%.

  1. I love the way you’ve modernized the look with the pop of color on your shoes.

    My mom & my sister swear by Downy Wrinkle Releaser spray (I haven’t tried it yet since I don’t usually wear fabrics that require it).

  2. That light pink is stunning on you!

  3. Dress is beautiful! Garment steamers are the best! You can get some great travel size steamers for about $25.

  4. My goodness! You are stunning in that dress. You’re rocking light colors for all of us pale girls!

    • It’s weird, I usually avoid pastels. But for some reason, I was really happy with this one.

  5. Really pretty! That color is great on you- delicate and very spring like!

  6. Love the color and especially the length.

  7. Love that dress, the detailing is beautiful. I agree I would purchase a garment steamer since you are reviewing so many items from these types of boxes. Also, the pink shoes are cute but I think I would go with a silver shoe.

  8. Love this dress!

  9. I would purchase a garment steamer. Once you use one, you’ll never go back to ironing. Love the dress! That sleeve detailing is gorgeous.

  10. Great review! Thanks for the billing updates. It tips me in favor of subbing, since they’ll be so low maintenance.

    Are those Steve Madden pumps? I know you’ve got them in a billion colors (and I adore the Jem-pink!) I recall you mentioned them in a previous post, but I can’t remember the name of the style. Please help me out, as I’d love to see if they work for me as well.

    • Yes, they are Steve Madden “Getta” pumps. Pretty sure the style (there are tons of colors) is discontinued but you can find plenty of new ones from 3rd party sellers on Amazon.

      • Thank you bunches! They look fabulous. You have awesome style! 🙂

  11. Spray water, then use your blow dryer on high.

  12. You look gorgeous in that dress (as always). You should be a dress model.

  13. I’d stream it if you have a streamer. Low stream, from the inside. And, as always, you look lovely! I’d love to see hot pink jewelry to match the pumps.
