CHC Vintage Plus Dress November 2018 Review
I love the leopard print greeting card, DUH!
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. This month’s box had two dresses included in it, one that was featured in my October review and this, the November selection. The dress I received in August Nicole mentioned did not fit me, sadly, but the September selection I reviewed fit like a dream!
A little black dress is timeless, but this one has a Bohemian take with the crochet overlay. The underlay fabric has stretch as does the crochet overlay itself. The dress is sleeveless, which might make you think this is not an appropriate cold weather piece. Alas, with proper styling you can wear this versatile piece all year long! In the spring and summer, I can wear it with wooden Bad Sandy Candy style heels, Jackie O’ style sunglasses, and a large brimmed hat to keep me guarded against the sun.
One can wear it a few ways in the cooler winter months. For a brisk fall day, simply pair the dress with western style booties and a leopard faux fur coat. I am serving some Courtney Love meet Stevie Nicks realness in this ensemble, mamas!
I easily made this more winter appropriate by layering a black turtleneck underneath as well. I prefer black since it blends into the dress seamlessly, but this could look great with an olive green or rust-colored mock turtleneck or t-shirt underneath as well! As you can see, the possibilities are endless with this dress! This is definitely a valuable staple piece!
Verdict: CHC Vintage nailed it again with this perfect selection! I have casually been looking for a crochet dress recently, how did Nicole and her staff know? Maybe they are mind readers or they simply understand my style and tastes that well! I am consistently impressed with the selections I receive from CHC Vintage time and time again; not only are they thoughtful, but fantastic quality plus size vintage items! Plus size vintage can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. As much as I love the thrill of hunting for pieces in thrift stores and flea markets, I also love being able to let CHC do the dirty work for me! I can’t suggest this service enough!
