Look at this precious shoe print on their greeting card! I LOVE IT!

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.

Black Velvet Daisy Trim Dress – Retail Value Unavailable

Nicole and the CHC team are well aware of my love of velvet dresses! They have sent me quite a few, this velour leopard print one from my January review is one of my favorites… till now! This month, CHC Vintage sent me this adorable crushed black velvet, short-sleeved dress! The dress has a daisy trim under the chest to create definition on this baby doll style piece. The fabric has ample stretch but also has a zipper in the back. I love that this is a shorter dress, but it also is modest and covers my behind comfortably if I bend over. I can wear this to work without fretting over potentially exposing myself! The beauty of this piece is its versatility; I can easily wear this dress on cooler summer nights into chilly fall days. I simply will add tights, booties, and my faux leather biker jacket for a perfect Autumnal ensemble! I styled the dress with accessories from the September CHC Vintage Accessory box (review coming soon!) and some strappy 90s style, chunky heeled platforms from Target. I feel like 8th grade me circa 1995 would be salivating over this ensemble for sure!

Verdict: CHC Vintage nailed it again! This adaptable piece is easy to wear and will certainly become a staple piece in my wardrobe. I always appreciate the thoughtfulness that Nicole and her team put into every selection they send me. They always have me in mind with what is sent and it shows! It is truly like receiving a care package from a far-away friend! Also, I appreciate getting sent quality vintage pieces monthly that are in plus sizes! I am a bargain hunter and love hitting up thrift stores, flea markets, and estate sales— but sometimes it is nice to leave the hunting to someone else. Thanks, CHC for always managing to find an ideal piece for me!

  1. Nicole, I really like your reviews. I have been keeping an eye on them for a few months now without commenting, so just letting you know that I think you are doing a fantastic job. You have a great eye for putting together cute looks, and I really dig your hair color as well.

    One thing I have to mention is that the best thing about you is that you are clearly comfortable in your own skin, enjoying your young life with unabashed enthusiasm and healthy self esteem. Props to your mom, or whatever female role model taught you to love yourself. You’re awesome kid, and it shows! Keep up the good work…

  2. That dress looks made for you! Looks fantastic!

  3. Love that dress!!! So many ways to wear it.

    • Totally, TK! It is incredibly versatile!

  4. That dress is gorgeous on you.

    • Thank you, Diane!

  5. What a great dress. It fits perfectly and is very flattering on you.

    • Awe thank you so much, Helen. I love it!

  6. Yep- definitely owned this dress before & would again!

    • Erin, it is a classic for sure!

  7. That is a really good dress for you. It fits you very well and I think the contrast with your hair color is also great.

    • Awe, thank you so much, Ragan! I love it too! I am going to try so much wear from it this fall!

  8. I have a soft spot in my fashion heart for black crushed velvet dresses. Had one in the 90s and wore it until it was too short to be called a dress!

    • Yes, Michelle, you can’t go wrong with velvet! I have so many velvet pieces and never tire of them!

  9. Looking good Nicole! Perfect fit.

    • Thanks, Jody!

  10. Nicole…you totally own this dress. They nailed it.

    • Thanks, Shelly! I am excited. It will be the perfect get up and go fall dress! Effortlessly cute!
