CHC Vintage September 2018 Review
When you sign up you fill out a customer style survey where you answer questions about your personal style so each subscriber gets a dress that’s customized just for them. Let’s see what I received this month!
I love that they send a handwritten note to go along with your dress. This note welcomed me to CHC Vintage and explained a bit about the piece that I received. They also gave some styling tips which I think is really helpful!
David Calais Velour Dress
When I first saw this fabric, visions of Star Wars and E-woks crossed my mind. My husband refers to it as my “Friar Tuck” dress and it definitely has a monk-quality to it, but I loved the way the velour felt. So luxurious! When I tried it on, I was pleasantly surprised. It was so comfortable and soft, plus it has pockets! I love the length, but the sleeves were a bit short on me, so I decided to wear them pushed up which I think looks nice with this fabric. I have no shoes that would work with this dress though, so I am taking suggestions! I chose to pair it with a waist belt and gold jewelry and I felt really stylish and comfortable in this. I feel like it’s flattering and a perfect fall piece.
Here are a few of the details up close. This is definitely a 70’s/80’s style dress as they referenced in the note and it still has the original tag which is pretty neat. They mention that Calais is a rare designer and I wasn’t able to find anything about him when I looked him up, but this is definitely a one-of-a-kind piece. Apparently, velour is actually in style right now, so I will definitely be wearing this out once I find some shoes to wear with it!
Verdict: This was my first dress from CHC Vintage and while I was a bit skeptical at first, I am so thrilled with this dress. They gave a ton of other style suggestions such as pairing it with a moto jacket and I’m excited to see how else I can style it because I feel like it’s a really versatile piece. I think that the quality of the dress and having someone find this specifically for me is definitely worth the $39.99 cost of the subscription.
