CHC Vintage Iron City Beer Sweatshirt & Retro Beaded 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.
Retro IC Light Beer Mock-Neck Sweatshirt
This sweatshirt is absolutely AWESOME! I’m from Pittsburgh—I actually live about 10 minutes away from the original Iron City brewery. Iron City (pronounced “arn siddy” if you’re speaking true Pittsburghese) and IC Light are Pittsburgh’s Pabst Blue Ribbon equivalents. They’re the beers that gruff dads and uncles drink during football games and the kind of frills-free thing you order at the local dive bar where the company means more than the quality of the cocktails.
In short, IC Light is iconic. And I absolutely flipped my lid when I saw this sweatshirt. It’s so retro with its raglan cut and tall neckline. It’s awfully cozy, too! When I wear it, I feel like I’ve stepped into the 70s. All I need is a mustache and a Steelers bomber jacket to complete the look 🙂
Handpainted Beaded Necklace
The accessory for the month was packaged inside its own white box. It’s not something I’d wear with my new wonder-sweatshirt, but I think it’d be a pretty addition to a scoopneck tee or even a chambray button-up. Some of the beads are plain periwinkle, but others are painted with autumnal-hued leaves. It’s unique and quirky, and I like how chunky it is.
Verdict: I’m swooning for this month’s picks! That sweatshirt is now one of my go-to winter looks. (It’s so cute with jeans, but even better over a brown corduroy skirt, knit tights, and booties.) The necklace delivers on the uniqueness that I turn to vintage shopping to provide. And both pieces are in awesome shape. No big holes or loose threads or distracting scuffs to worry about.
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 $30.00, including free shipping (though note that you have to sign up for at least 3 months at one time, for a total of $90.00), meaning that the two featured items have an average of $15.00 each.
