The Divine Trash Vintage “Trash Club” is a vintage clothing and accessories subscription that curates one new look (or sometimes two) every month based on your size and preferences. When you sign up, you’ll complete their survey, where you’ll share things like your sizing, height, weight, gender identity, and your personal style. You’ll also see laydowns (like Polyvore boards) of different outfits that you choose between in order to visually show off your taste. You can also share Pinterest boards and write in any other notes you have about what you like to wear. Divine Trash also sends an email shortly after each order arrives, asking for feedback to help them better narrow down your style.

In place of an info card, this subscription company sends you a retro matchbook in each package. My candles are very happy with this development. I’m no longer shuffling around every junk drawer in the house looking for where the lighter went every time I want a little atmosphere.

Divine Trash Vintage trash club note

Each item I get comes with a handwritten note from the Divine Trash crew. I love this personal touch. And hello, “GLAMOUR KNIT”? I hereby declare “Glamour Knit” the official theme of my 2018 winter vibe.

Blue “Ugly” Holiday Sweater

Sure, I’ll use the colloquial “ugly sweater” moniker to describe this magical blue baby, but to me, this sweater is anything but ugly! Maximalist? Oh, for SURE. Retro? Goodness, yes. Ugly? Pshhh. Look at that photo, folks. I am one hair crimper away from being the Glamour Shots version of the Sugarplum Fairy.

Everyone’s been asking whether this twinkling holiday sweater is itchy or not. Weirdly enough, not really! Granted, the metallic threads aren’t the most luxurious thing in the world, but it’s way comfier than a lot of thrift store finds I’ve happened upon. Besides, it’s winter. I’ll pop a long-sleeved, close-fitting tee on underneath if it gets too pesky.

The Verdict: Oh, Trash Club, how I love thee. All of the best statement pieces in my closet have come from this subscription. My day-to-day style is pretty straightforward, so I love punching things up with the one-of-a-kind pieces I get from this service. And since I don’t have the time to do a ton of treasure hunting of my own these days, it’s awesome to be able to get one curated pick in the mail once a month. Even though the sub costs more than I might pay if I found this look at a thrift shop, it’s worth it to me convenience-wise. Everything is my size (almost everything I’ve gotten so far has fit like a glove) and fits with the kinds of statement items I like to wear. The company gives subscribers a lot of great ways to leave feedback and update their info, too, so they can pick pieces that are current with your changing style and needs!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You can definitely subscribe, but what you get will be super unique, both because it’s vintage and because it’s picked specifically for your tastes! According to Divine Trash, Trash Club packages will ship within a week of your charge.

Value Breakdown: This box cost $30.00 with free US shipping.

  1. You look adorable in that sweater. Nothing ugly about it. That word should be abolished.

  2. Your sweater is fantastic! I received a creamy button up chunky cardigan, but it’s about two sizes too big!! I’m still wearing it everywhere, though!

  3. I had a sweater like this in junior high (sparkle thread, pattern,) except mine was all cream. The blue really pops on you, Anna!

  4. This looks like a sweater Judith Light would have worn on “Who’s The Boss?”

    • It does!

  5. I love it! I think it looks great and makes your eyes pop.

  6. You do look like the SugarPlum Fairy. I really like the sweater on you and love the color too. I don’t think it’s ugly at all. Lol

  7. Anna that sweater looks like it was made for you. Please wear that many times this holiday season!

  8. That sweater is so ugly it’s pretty and I want to find one for myself. I would wear the HECK out of that thing.
