CHC Vintage October 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 explained a bit about the piece that I received which is from the 70’s/80’s era. They also gave some styling tips which I think is really helpful!

Sally III Knit Dress, Size 11/12

When I first pulled this dress out, I was drawn to the color but I was really unsure about until I tried it on. I ended up loving the way it fits though! It’s probably a bit tight at the bust, but the skirt is fantastic! I liked how it was heavy but had so much movement to it. The length was perfect for me and really gave me fall vibes, which I love. I think this could easily translate into a cute and stylish wicked witch costume for Halloween. It’s something about that beautiful green color, which also feels very 80’s to me. I know I need some smaller booties to go with it, but these were all I had for modeling. I also love how it’s broken up in the middle by a completely different fabric and texture. The sleeves are the only part I can’t figure out. They are not quite a full length on me and I can’t tell if it’s intentional or not. I don’t think it affects the look too much though.

Here are some close-ups. You can see there is a tiny bit of pilling on the fabric, but it’s not super noticeable. I love the knit detail here in the center of the dress and the gold hardware on the belt. It actually has belt loops for the belt to go through which I appreciate since waist belts never seem to stay up on me! This fabric is thick and feels like it’s a really great quality, definitely perfect to take me into winter time as they recommended in my note.

Verdict: This was another win for me from CHC Vintage! I’m totally impressed with how they are able to match my style and send me pieces that I feel are fairly flattering. I just really need to up my jacket and accessories game so that I can really make the most of these dresses! This dress is in great shape and the material seems like it’s a quality material that will continue to last. I am having a lot of fun with this $39.99 subscription so far and I’m excited for next month. 

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 $39.99, including free shipping, and I received one vintage dress.

  1. I love, love, love this dress! It reminds me of the dress Ariel wears in The Little Mermaid. You look so cute!

    • Ah! You’re totally right! I’ll have to point that out to my daughter! She loves that movie! 🙂

  2. The color and the fit are gorgeous in you. What a pretty dress!

    • Thanks, Alex! 🙂

  3. Fantastic dress and that color is PERFECT on you! Congrats on the spot-on selection!

  4. I had this dress in white back in the day! What a fun flashback!

    • Ooh! White would be fun!

  5. I have to wear minimizer bras with most button downs, I actually really like the dress and the cut is really flattering.

    • I might have to look into getting one! Thanks, Anna! 🙂

    • I was going to say the same thing Anna! I find having a minimizer bra so helpful in being able to wear a greater range of items….then I have “fuller” bras for when I really want to fill things out 😉

  6. Very nice…great for fall…and the boots look cute with it…!

    • Thanks for reading, Noelle! 🙂
