CHC Vintage Outfit February 2019 Review
This subscription is customized based on your size and preferences from a survey you fill out after subscribing, so everyone receives something different each month. But that’s part of the fun! This was my first time receiving the outfit subscription:
There is usually a handwritten card with some styling suggestions. The level of detail just gives me the feeling that the people at CHC Vintage are really excited by what they do.
I find that my preferences are really listened to, as well. I don’t wear shorts or super short skirts and what I received this month (see below) is definitely a length that works for me. (For reference, this month I was given a choice of decades and I chose 1940s/1950s just for the fun of it.)
1940s/1950s Era Vintage Skirt and Top
This is great for me. Although it’s dark, it’s NOT neutral, and navy is a color I do wear relatively often. This is totally suitable for work either as-is in warmer months or in the winter with tights and a cardigan. The skirt length is great. And everything was in really good condition.
Here is the original label in the top, it’s still kind of hanging in there. The skirt doesn’t have a label; the people at CHC Vintage think it is handmade (and it does kind of have that look to it, though skillfully done).
1970s Vintage Necklace
This necklace is from a bit later period but I think it adds some nice contrast to the top. It has a pretty long extender chain in the back so you can make it work with different necklines.
Here is a closer look at the necklace, on.
Verdict: I didn’t know what to expect with the CHC Vintage Outfit subscription, basically just the pictures on their website. Although I did give some preferences for things I might like, I didn’t strongly oppose any options (except shorts and really short skirts). I kind of picked the 1940s/1950s on a whim but it ended up working pretty well for me. Everything fit and was clean and in good condition and the accessory is totally something I will wear, probably not just with this but with other outfits as well. It’s also cool to get a handmade skirt, although of course, that won’t happen every month (but it is a perk of going with an earlier era for your outfits).
To Wrap Up:
