Divine Trash Vintage Green Velvet Jumpsuit Review
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!
