CHC Vintage May 2018 Review
Included is this watercolor hearts card!
There isn’t a traditional information card or invoice included with the subscription box; you get a personalized handwritten card with styling suggestions instead. I love all the styling tips Nicole and her team included! Their selections for me are always so thoughtful too.
Technicolor Floral Dress – Retail Value Unavailable
This vintage dress is such a wild mix of electric neons next to a tan brown. The fabric is rather thin and extremely stretchy. When I initially saw this piece, I was not sure I would be able to get it on this bodacious bod. I did, but it is a slight bit tighter than even I would prefer. It may look different with some Spanx on, but I rarely wear body shapers these days. I don’t mind the short length since I love mini dresses, but my chest is a bit too big for this dress. The fabric hem hits me about midway on my chest, which is a bit of a peeve of mine. I could see styling this with a ton of gold accessories like Nicole and her team suggested (including my sparkly, gold, platform shoes) and giving my hair some Farrah Fawcett feathered curls in this ensemble. I need a gold plated “Nicole” necklace to complete this look I am envisioning. This definitely would not be appropriate for work, but would be perfect for a girls’ night of dancing out on the town with my best gal pals!
Verdict: This month’s selection was a unique one from CHC Vintage! It had some sizing issues, but you will have that with vintage pieces especially when it comes to plus sizes! I feel it definitely appeals to my aesthetic and as always, CHC had me in mind when they sent me this dress! CHC Vintage’s subscription always feels so personalized and considerate. I am always impressed since finding quality, vintage, plus pieces can be like looking for a needle in a haystack!
