divine trash vintage trash club package

Trash Club by Divine Trash Vintage is a fashion subscription box that sends you a new vintage treasure each month. Run by two women out of Missoula, Montana, this awesomely irreverent styling service is the answer for people whose tastes aren’t satisfied by more mainstream subscriptions. As they put it on their site:

If you want to be a badass with an unconventional vibe or a trendsetter that is constantly fielding “where did you get that???”, then you have come to right place, my friend!

Trash Club by Divine Trash Vintage June 2018 Review

Each package I’ve received from this subscription includes a retro pack of matches in the box. I think it’s a really cute touch. Plus it keeps me well-stocked with matches for my (rapidly) growing collection of scented candles.

The Trash Club works like this: When you sign up, you’ll complete their (recently updated!) survey, noting things like sizing, height, weight, and gender identity, and the different style preferences you have. They also have a cool widget where you’re shown laydowns (like Polyvore boards) of different outfits, and you click to remove ones that don’t fit your style. Now that it’s summer, my style is starting to brighten up a bit, but my general aesthetic involves neutrals, unexpected patterns, and quirky silhouettes. I also like unique third pieces (like jackets and other pieces that I can layer over a basic outfit to take it to head-turning territory).

Admittedly, my style isn’t always the easiest thing to vintage shop for—it’d probably be way easier if I had a decade I could pin my style to, like 70s or 90s. But I’ve been really happy with the pieces I’ve received so far! They haven’t followed a strict script. Some things have followed the more understated vibes I opt for day to day, but others tap into the more adventurous patterns and colors that I enthusiastically collect on my Pinterest boards (which my “stylists” have, thanks to the survey). And literally, every pick makes me ooo and ahh the second I lay eyes on it.

One of my favorite parts about this subscription is that the curators behind it always add a little handwritten note to the hangtag of what I get. If you take a sec to read through the Divine Trash website, you’ll see that these stylish folks are BRIMMING with personality. Add these scribbled notes to that experience, and I really feel like I’m getting to know my subscription overlords. And I LOVE that. It’s not as if just anyone is out there picking pieces for me, or that I’m just another customer in a big style machine. Maybe their appeal is a bit more niche than some of the bigger brands, but I legit feel like I know these irreverent, expressive people… and that they’re the kind of people who really “get” me, too.

Jackson-Pollock-Inspired Button-Up Jacket

Look upon this masterpiece of a jacket! I’m wearing it with some high-waisted Frank & Oak pants (that I’m kind of obsessed with) so my body looks a little more ovoid than usual, haha. But there’s something about that cocoon shape that I think is really interesting, modern, and I’ll just say it, COMFORTABLE.

After emerging on the photo set in my new jacket, fellow MSA-er Emily looked at me and said “Oh, you’re the coolest art teacher ever!!!” So BASICALLY the best compliment I could’ve received. I mean just look at those charcoal paint splatters! The dove gray blots! The seafoam squiggles! I feel like if an ethereal LA manifestation coach grew up to be a Golden Girl. (“Picture it… Sicily… No, wait… VENICE BEACH!…”)

Let’s talk specifics before I get too carried away posing in the mirror in my new find. I love the three-quarter sleeves on this piece, especially since they have a dolman-ish cut to them. The arms are really free and breezy, like the kimono-inspired styles that are popping up everywhere this summer. The material is made from a cool, breathable 100% cotton weave that I can best describe as feeling like a stiff bed sheet. Stiffness isn’t great for sheets, but it adds a crispness to the hem and cuffs of this piece. I also think that there’s a good chance this piece will soften into something even MORE comfortable wash after wash.

Oh, it also looks awesome open. I love the option to wear it as a summer jacket!

The Verdict: I love it. I juuuuust love it. This is exactly the kind of thing that I’d swoon over at a trendy consignment store. The colors, the cut, the nice quality—it’s the perfect match for my style profile responses. I’m having so much fun with this subscription, but I can say that it requires an adventurous palate. If you’re a vintage shopper who enjoys finding timeless items by notable brands… eh… this subscription might not be right for you. If you’re looking for consignment versions of the latest trends… you might also not get exactly what you’re looking for here. But if you’re the kind of person who loves the delightfully off-key world of vintage—the kind of vintage pieces that make you feel a little bit like you’re playing dress up when you try them on—then you’ve got to try this subscription! I don’t get the chance to do my own vintage treasure hunting as much as I used to these days, but every time I get one of these packages in the mail, I get that same gleeful rush that I get finding something super unique at the thrift store!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You can definitely subscribe, but what you get will be super unique, both because it’s vintage and because it’s picked specifically for your tastes! According to Divine Trash, Trash Club packages will ship within a week of your charge.

Value Breakdown: This box cost $30.00 with free US shipping, meaning I spent $30.00 on this look.

  1. I have been getting this sub for a couple of months and totally agree with all of your praise for the curators. They get me and they get me outside of my comfort zone. Their customer service is awesome, and I love their personal touches with suggestions on how to wear the clothes. I live in SF and told them I bike to work and they even sent me a note saying something along the lines of “we can imagine you zipping around on a foggy San Francisco day with this jacket layered over a hoody.” It’s the best.

  2. You look great Anna! I’m going to give this subscription a go too. Thanks for the review.

  3. Love!!! It is giving me on oversized Japan street style lagenlook vibe! I would layer the heck out of it with a linen long tank and linen cropped wide pants. So cool!

  4. I love it open! I totally get the “art teacher” vibe. I always say that’s how I feel when I’m wearing something that’s off the beaten path but decidedly cool. I would wear the heck out of this with leggings and a chunky shoe.

    • Yes!!! I feel like it’s also totally a Claudia from the Babysitters Club look. (In the BEST way!) I just need a scrunchie and I’m set.

      Also, hello, I’m literally wearing this jacket RIGHT NOW over a plain tee and some skinny black jeans <3 <3 <3

  5. I like it better open

  6. I like it. I think it would look very cute with black leggings and loafers.

    • Yes I second baggy top with fitted pants or leggings
