Run by two women out of Missoula, Montana, this awesomely irreverent styling service is the answer for people whose tastes aren’t satisfied by more mainstream subscriptions. As they put it on their site:

If you want to be a badass with an unconventional vibe or a trendsetter that is constantly fielding “where did you get that???”, then you have come to right place!

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. Fun and practical!

Okay, everyone. Hold onto your hats. You’re not going to believe what I got for December.

Green Velvet Flowy Jumpsuit

It is I, an evergreen tree come to life! The most glamorous Gumby! The closing number of a Lawrence Welk holiday spectacular!

I can’t tell you how much I love this wonderfully wild green velvet jumpsuit. (Did you read that sentence? GREEN VELVET JUMPSUIT. I mean, WOW.) If it wasn’t for the pants, I’d say that this look was downright regal—it feels a bit like something I’d wear as a queen in a play. The color is awesome, and if you couldn’t guess, it’s tremendously comfortable. And get this—according to the tag, this stretchy one-piece was originally designed as a band-leader’s uniform! Like, a marching band. I am GIDDY.

I mean just LOOK at these wide legs!

Now, obviously, the question is where the heck will I wear this? WILL I wear this? First, there’s no way I’m giving this away—that’d feel like giving away a unique piece of art. But I do have some schemes to make it more wearable. I have a friend who does tailoring and costume design work, and I think I’m going to ask her if she could knock the sleeves off of this bad boy, and maybe shorten the legs up just a bit. I can’t quite wear this piece without sizable heels, or else it’ll drag on the ground, and I’d love for it to be something I could parade around with flats.

As for the sleeves, I feel like they’re what makes this jumpsuit look a little more overwhelming than it actually is. If I chop them right at the shoulder seams, I think the jumpsuit would read a little lighter and more modern, almost like something you’d find on Free People or at a boho boutique.

Nixing the sleeves would also make it more comfortable to wear with a tailored jacket, like a black moto or jean jacket. To be honest, the Y-shaped seam around the hips isn’t my favorite (how it lands isn’t terribly flattering), so maybe I can distract from it by looping a metallic belt around the waist, too.

The Verdict: Trash Club, y’all are amazing. I cannot believe the stuff they come up with month after month. I credit this subscription for drawing me out of the minimal, all-black-and-gray wardrobe rut I started out with this time last year and helping me remember the playful, albeit a little kooky side of my style that I’d put to bed for a few years. It’s SO much fun unboxing my Trash Club package every month and challenging myself to come up with creative ways to flaunt these out-of-the-ordinary pieces. If you’re someone with more conservative tastes, I might not recommend this one. But if you love vintage not just for the eco- and budget-friendliness but for the expressive, adventurous, buried treasures you find along the way, then you have GOT to check this subscription box out!

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. Anna!! I have to say, you are clearly loving life in that curtsy photo and it makes me happy. Seriously, that’s a great pic. Your Divine Trash reviews are some of my all time favorites! As for the jumpsuit, I was thinking the same thing as you as I scrolled down through the review…if it were me, I would lose the sleeves and shorten it a bit to make it more dress-downable (flats, denim jacket, etc.). I keep flirting with subscribing to this service…after this review, DT and I might even get to second base 🙂

    P.S. That emerald crushed velvet makes your skin look amaaazing.

  2. I wouldn’t remove the sleeves entirely.. just shorten them, the poof design they have is awesome.

  3. That dress is magical on you!!! The color is mesmerizing and it fits like it was made just for you. So crazy! I love reading your reviews of this sub-

    • Dress/pants… sorry for typo above

  4. @Anna, I LOVE your reviews of this box! Your enthusiasm alone for the pieces they send you makes for a good read. And I can’t get over how well everything they send fits you! This box is so totally not my style, however, I am really curious to see what they would find for me…

    And I agree with the others – it’s wonderful they told you what the item was first used for.

    • Agree with Beth, your review of this is great. And piece itself is great!! I think it’s too far outside my comfort zone, but I can’t help wondering what they’d find for me….

  5. I don’t know, I think this piece is STUNNING as is. I would not alter a thing….I would accessorize with silver jewelry…..like a big silver cocktail ring and definitely a silver chain belt…..toss my hair up in a somewhat messy bun and rock some statement earrings! and a totally glam face! You look gorgeous in this jumpsuit, by the way……

  6. I LOVE WIDE LEG ANYTHING! It’s been next to impossible to find items for a very long time due to skinny jeans, I kept waiting for those to go out of style. And I had so much hope when high couture and runways started bringing back wide leg a few years ago.
    Anyways, I think this is so awesome! It is truly a jewel, and it’s even a jewel toned color. I agree that maybe just trying short sleeves would help, and if that doesn’t work you can still go sleeveless. You can always cut off more lol, not less.

    • I agree. Maybe start with 3/4 length sleeves and go from there, if you are altering it at all.

  7. I agree with losing the sleeves; the first thing I thought when I saw the picture was sleeveless, with the mock turtleneck would be amazing; going even further to something like a halter top with just collar.

  8. This is so cool! And it’s kind of insane how it fits you perfectly. What are the odds? I can see how adding a leather or denim jacket would break it up and make it less costume-y.

  9. Absolutely stunning! And plan on wearing it next New Year’s!

    It’s a costume, so I’m glad that you have a costume designer to consult with. Maybe, turn the pants into that regal dress skirt you had in mind? And please think again about removing the sleeves.

    You look fantastic in it, any old way.

  10. You get major props just for knowing who Lawrence Welk was! Rock on!!!

  11. Dude, I would rock this so hard. I love it! Looks smashing on you!

  12. That jumpsuit is fantastic! I think the slight poof at the sleeves is great, and would look really good as a short-sleeved number, instead of sleeveless!

    Also, maybe it’s the photo, but I think the Y-seam in the back is super flattering! That outfit fits you perfectly.

    I love that you know what the item was originally made for. I can imagine its past life, and it was a good one!

    • I totally agree with you…the Y seam is flattering…wish I had your waistline. I think a small amount of tailoring to “lighten” the look is a good idea…the color and material are super special. You look great in it!

  13. The most glamorous Gumby 😂 That was the best thing I’ve ever heard.Too funny, I totally love this and think you’re right about the sleeves. What a great piece!!
