Unique Vintage August 2018 Review
You never quite know what you’re going to get with this subscription. It could be a party dress or one that you could wear to work. Let’s see what I got this month:
Unique Vintage 1940s Style Teal Plaid Short Sleeve Erwin Shirtdress – Retail Value $110
I was encouraged when I saw the fabric composition since this is 70% cotton, 25% polyester, and 5% spandex. This means there is a little stretch to the fabric, which is so important to these dresses fitting me around the midsection (I have an XS top/hips and a M waist, and I order S and hope for the best).
Well. This did button up nicely, but whenever I bent my torso, a gap opened up between the two buttons surrounding my stomach (so I probably look like I am sucking in my stomach here, to keep that from happening in the picture). Because the dress fits well otherwise (and is cute, and work-appropriate, and an excellent weight for this time of year), I have ordered some snaps and will sew them into place to keep that gap closed. (I mean, I am also doing ab exercises since I had open abdominal surgery last year, but that takes longer and a waist less than 28 inches may not be in the cards for my body type regardless of the amount of work I put in.)
This is how far out the skirt goes. This is not really a petticoat dress. But it does have pockets!
Verdict: The dress I received has a retail price of $110, which is one of the best values I’ve seen from this subscription. The style is also cute and great for fall (in the South) office wear. Also, this one is machine washable! (That is a major score for Unique Vintage dresses.) I just need to put the snaps in to keep the middle closed and I will be all set.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, all boxes ship out at the same time of the month so it’s too late to get the August shipment. However, if you like the dress, you can order it from the link above. (Sign up for their email list; they have coupons and sales every now and then.)
Value Breakdown: This subscription costs $57 if you include shipping and you get one dress.
