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:

Can you still get this box if you subscribe today? No, every box is different.

Value Breakdown: This box costs $150 for three months, so you are paying an average of $50 per month (which includes Priority Mail shipping). That means each of the 3 pieces sent has an average cost of $16.67.

  1. Ragan, how come don’t you ever smile?? I love seeing these reviews of this box and the other ones you get and you say you love what you get, but you never smile! I would love to see you looking happy in a review to match how beautiful you look in your clothes! 🙂

    • Wow that’s uncalled for. Not everyone smiles in pictures. It’s really annoying when some obnoxious twit tells you to smile. Don’t be that person.

      • Lol it’s not okay for me to want to see her looking happy, but it’s okay to call me an obnoxious twit? I know not everyone smiles, but she does in her bio pic and it would just be nice to see her looking happy, that’s all. Wasn’t meant with any malice, certainly not with any of the malice that your comment had.

  2. I wore a very similar skirt in the 70s/early 80s!

  3. Super cute on you!!

  4. Outfit reminds me of what I would wear to school in the 50s. I can’t remember chunky jewelry though—-mostly lockets and other small items on a chain.

  5. Gorgeous outfit!

  6. This outfit is amazing! It looks great on you.

  7. I got one of their t-shirt and accessory boxes recently and was so thrilled with the curation. I have a very 80s glam metal style preference and not only did they send an awesome Poison shirt even the notecard was cheetah print. Which just really stood out as a thoughtful thematic touch

  8. You look lovely. A+ outfit

  9. Hi, Ragan. That outfit is lovely! Just one thing, though — you might have the skirt on sideways. Zippers on women’s garments (dresses and skirts) were commonly set in the sides, but I suspect you have the zipper on your skirt turned to the back. (If it’s handmade, there wouldn’t be a tag to let you know where the back was, either.) The style of skirt is called an A-line, because of the angle it will make if you turn it a quarter-turn.

    That said, you may prefer the way the skirt hangs in the picture. It drapes differently.

    My mom was an excellent seamstress, and I can tell you that whoever made your skirt knew to take the time to match the plaid at the seams, so it was a nicely made piece.

    Thanks for the review. I’m definitely going to find out more about CHC Vintage!

    • I couldn’t put my finger on what was bothering me about the skirt. Now that I read your comment me about the skirt. Now I know! I looked at the pic again and could completely see that now. Still cute Ragan either way.

  10. You look great Ragan! That style is really flattering on you.
