CHC Vintage Quirky Bowling Shirt & Mid-Century Modern Necklace Review
I love that each box comes with a handwritten note. It gives the items a little context and makes getting the box feel much more personal, curated, and special.
Pink Retro Bowling Tee
While nothing can compare to the quirkiness of last month’s tee, this bright pink bowling shirt checks off all the boxes for a super unique, silly, fun design. “Musical pins”? Amazing! A bowling ball wearing sunglasses? It feels right out of one of those corny interstitial videos that play on the scoreboard screen at the bowling alleys of my youth.
I don’t wear a ton of hot pink, but I’m going to find a way to make this tee work with my wardrobe. I might actually snip the hemline a bit so it has more of a boxier fit and wear it under a cute fall jacket with high-waisted jeans…
Chunky Retro Necklace
My accessory this month is something I’d NEVER have picked for myself, and I’m not sure if I love it or not. I do have a soft spot for outrageously over-the-top pieces like this one, but the color palette reminds me of one of those bottles of olives and peppers that you see at hole-in-the-wall Italian restaurants. Y’know what I mean? There’s something very “dirty martini” about it…
Verdict: I love the quirk factor of this month’s tee, though I’m not 100% sold on the necklace quite yet. I’m determined to find a way to make it work, though! (To all my vintage fans out there—how would you style it?) If you’re someone who has time to do lots of treasure hunting around your local thrift and vintage shops, then the $30.00 price tag on this subscription might seem kind of excessive. You’ve gotta do some digging, but you could probably find tees and necklaces that share the same silly spirit of these picks for a fraction of the cost of this subscription. But that’s the thing—you’ve gotta do the digging. And with my schedule, I just don’t have the time to commit to thrifting the way I did in the past. So for me, this box is a great way to get my vintage fix without setting aside a day to shop.
