CHC Vintage May 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 May’s shipment had in it for me:
There is usually a handwritten card with some styling suggestions.
Vintage Leopard Print Dress
Unlike last month, this dress is not handmade – it has a manufacturer label and size tag. This is the second leopard print dress I’ve received from CHC Vintage, but this one is work-appropriate (the other one was fun, but not for the office).
This one is silk and this little tag fell out when I opened the package:
This dress was in really good condition (no loose threads, all buttons securely attached) so hopefully proper garment care will keep it that way.
This fits nicely and felt quite breathable. I can wear this with some black sandals at this time of year or pair it with a cardigan and tights when it gets colder (I live in Georgia so it never really gets too cold).
Verdict: I like the dress I received from CHC Vintage this month. I do enjoy fun, bold prints, but I also mostly need clothes I can wear to work, and this satisfies both conditions. Plus, it fits very well and is in excellent condition. I seem to do a lot better with CHC Vintage in terms of getting dresses that work for me, than with some of the styling services for new garments. Perhaps that says something about my taste, but at least I know I won’t be wearing the same thing as everyone else!
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. But 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.
