CHC Vintage Tees and Accessories September 2018 Review

The box came with a handwritten note from the CHC team. I think personal touches like this are so sweet.

Everything comes all wrapped up inside the larger shipping box.

Mt. Rushmore Souvenir Tee

This tee is probably a little too weird for some folks, but I think it’s fantastic. Super kitschy, super retro, and very very silly. The front of this chocolate brown tee features a print of Mt. Rushmore. On the back, there’s a very groovy 70s couple admiring the giant derrieres of the Mt. Rushmore crew, with the text “…near as I can tell we’re somewhere behind Mt. Rushmore.” Amazing.

I mean, wow. It’s like a dad joke I can wear.

Brown Leather Geometric Purse

My accessory for this month is sooo cool. I love the quality of this leather purse. It’s soft, yet sturdy, with supple matte finish. The geometric patterns and terracotta and chocolate panels look so modern, despite it being a vintage piece. Plus, there’s lots of space inside (and pockets, too) for carrying my big phone, keys, makeup… maybe even a small book!

Square Bangle

As mentioned in the handwritten note, this box includes a special extra accessory just for fun. I LOVE this bangle. It’s a little clunky to wear to work (the shape makes it less than comfy to wear while I’m working at my computer), but out and about, it’ll make an awesome statement piece. I like that there’s a bit of white sandwiched between the two tortoise-shell layers—it almost looks like a cookie sandwich of some kind, doesn’t it?

Verdict: I’m so stoked about this month’s tee! It’s probably not for everyone, but it’s a great match for me and my sense of humor/style. I’m also in LOVE with the accessories I got. I can’t believe they sent a bonus item, too! The purse is going into my regular rotation IMMEDIATELY, and I can’t wait to flaunt my eye-catching new bangle. I love that the pieces are in great condition, plus they feel really contemporary and on-trend despite being retro items.

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 $30.00, including free shipping (though note that you have to sign up for at least 3 months at one time, for a total of $90.00), meaning that the two featured items have an average of $15.00 each. Counting the bonus bangle, the average changes to $10.00 per item.

  1. Would love to get this subscription but I don’t like the forced 3 months.

    • Hi Michelle! There is also an option of getting just one month in our vintage boxes section.

  2. That BAG omg! My style is so 70s & I would adore that bag. Amazing box & review!

    • RIGHT? I’m blown away – I love these picks so much! Thanks for reading, Maggie 🙂

  3. I am in love with your goodies!! All three pieces are amazing!!

  4. Wow, what amazing finds. That purse is so 70’s. Really good value for the pricepoint.

  5. Great review! They do seem to pick out perfect pieces for their subscribers. I would love to try this sub.

  6. Oh my gosh! I almost choked when I saw the shirt. My mom actually had (and wore) this shirt back when!! Love it!

    • Get out! That’s SO funny, SusieA. I wonder if I got HER shirt from long ago??? Thanks for your comment – I love that this review could be a little time warp for you, hehe 🙂

  7. That t-shirt is hilarious! I think irony and kitsch is a big selling point for a majority of folks who would be into a vintage t-shirt collection, so this is really spot on. The bangle is cool. But that purse!? AMAZING find…and I consider myself to be quite the thrift shop queen. Never seen anything quite like that bag. This subscription is actually cooler and more well-curated than I expected it to be. Great review, thanks for sharing!
