Unique Vintage April 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:

Unique Vintage 1950s Style Mint and Sailor Print Cap Sleeve Hedda Swing Dress – Retail Value $128
This is the first dress I’ve received in awhile without a back zipper (there are buttons down part of the front) so it was super easy to get on, all by myself. I would say the fit was decent. I have mentioned this before, but my hips and bust are XS in Unique Vintage sizing, and my waist is closer to M, so I compromise and get S, and it mostly works, although I think this one is a tad too big up top.
Also, this probably would’ve looked a lot better with a petticoat, but I was getting ready to go out running errands and to dinner and a petticoat wouldn’t have been appropriate for that!
Yay for (functional) pockets! I think they add a nice decorative touch, as well.
Here is a close-up of the print. This is unusual but fun. They do send quirky prints occasionally (remember the sushi dress?) but not too often. I feel a little bit like I am wearing scrubs here because of the color (like the novelty scrubs the front desk people at vets’ or dentists’ offices wear) but this was comfortable (there was a little stretch to the fabric that really helped it fit around the midsection considering my odd measurements).
Verdict: The dress I received has a retail price of $128, which I think is the highest value I’ve seen from this subscription so far (that’s more than $70 over the price of the subscription plus shipping). The design and colors are fun for summer and I actually would wear this to work (maybe with a white cardigan, my office is air-conditioned and I prefer a bit more of a sleeve). With a petticoat and the right accessories, you could go in a totally different direction with the style here.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, all boxes ship out at the same time of the month so it’s too late to get the April shipment. However, if you like the dress, you can order it from the link above. (Sign up for their email list; they have coupons and sales every now and then.)
Value Breakdown: This subscription costs $57 if you include shipping and you get one dress.
