CHC Vintage July 2018 Review
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.
Blue Flower Babydoll Nightie by Eve Stillman – Retail Value Unavailable
This month, Nicole and her team sent me a dress that is intended to be a nightie by the Eve Stillman brand. I am all for wearing lingerie and nightgowns as everyday clothing because fashion is all about breaking boundaries and exploring different styles. I was a teen in the mid to late 90s, so you know automatically I have a soft spot for baby doll style dresses. I would wear dresses like these with my dad’s old flannels and my favorite metallic cherry red metallic boots I got from DEB shop. This piece is truly taking me back! For a modern-day take on grunge, I opted to style this dress with a faux leather biker jacket from my July Shoedazzle review, a hair net from Pinup in a Pack (review coming soon!) that I wore as a beret, necklace from Jewelry Subscription box (review coming soon!), and finally some rocker open-toed heels from ShoeDazzle (review coming soon for that too!). I was concerned initially due to the silky fabric of this piece since it would have limited stretch, but it fits me perfectly! This dress would be fantastic for the summer in platform sandals, a floppy peasant hat, and multiple silver chain charm necklaces. This could easily transition into fall with a denim jacket or a bulky sweater cardigan, tights, and Doc Marten boots.
Verdict: This CHC Vintage selection was pretty dang cute! I love that Nicole and her team sent me a lightweight dress ideal for hot, muggy August days! I am consistently impressed with the variety of high quality, vintage items that are sent my way from CHC. I am always eager to see what will be in my next box, especially since the stylists at CHC seem to have a real gauge on what appeals to me in terms of style and fit. It feels more like a care package from an old friend than a business, particularly due to the cute handwritten note cards they include! Finding decent plus size pieces can be an absolute challenge if you are a thrifting fiend, so having a convenient service like CHC that finds quality vintage pieces is fantastic!
