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, “Vintage Prints” style. You can see some examples of what the CHC Vintage folks consider to belong to each category on the sign-up page.

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This review is of the Vintage Prints, $39.99 a month, box.

CHC Vintage June 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 June’s shipment had in it for me:

There is usually a handwritten card with some styling suggestions.

Limited Brand Silk Sundress

Yes, Limited like the stores that shut down last year. Apparently, this brand has been around since 1969, which I did not know (it was a staple of malls during my teenage years, of course).

I think the print is cute and I actually like the length – I don’t own too many dresses in this length, but I like wearing them. There is a zipper in the back and while it was a little bit tight around my ribcage, the dress basically fit pretty well.

The only thing is, this is quite thin and clingy. I was sucking in my stomach and thinking, “OK, who gets to see the precise contours of my hysterectomy scar?” What I need is some good shapewear, either in the form of underwear or a slip (if such things exist) to hold everything in place.

I don’t have a cardigan or shrug in quite the right color to go with this but now I will be on the lookout for one that I like. For what it’s worth, I may shorten the straps an inch or so. I think I must have small shoulders.

Verdict: I like the dress I received from CHC Vintage this month. With appropriate accessories and undergarments, this could even work for my office, which is great since that’s about the only place I ever wear dresses, these days. As usual, it was in excellent shape – clean, with no rips, tears, stains, unusual smells, etc.).

There is a generous exchange policy if something doesn’t fit or has some other issue (I once received 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.
