CHC Vintage Beatles Yellow Submarine Tee & Beaded Necklace Review
I love that each box comes with a handwritten note from the stylist. I’d mentioned that I liked band tees when signing up for the subscription, so I love that I got a Beatles tee this month!
Beatles Yellow Submarine Tie Dye T-Shirt
I love this shirt! It feels like something I would’ve worn every day in my junior high days, and that nostalgia has made me really excited to work this look into a bunch of current outfits. To be clear, I don’t think this is an original, 1960s tee. Looking at the tag, which is in relatively good, newer condition, I have a feeling that this might be a more recent creation from a manufacturer that licensed the imagery. The tie dye seems like a DIY that someone did to a plain white shirt, which gives the look a little more originality. Of course, I’m interested in vintage clothing for the aesthetic, not necessarily the authenticity of the pieces. The fact that this tee isn’t vintage vintage is A-OK with me.
Gray Beaded Necklace
I like that I get an accessory with each installment of this subscription! This necklace has retro vibes, but the charcoal color and simple shape of the spherical beads give it a modern, almost edgy vibe. I’m thinking this would look really cool over a denim shift dress or jumpsuit with a V-neckline.
This necklace isn’t the perfect match for this t-shirt, but I figured I’d model it just to give you a sense of scale!
Verdict: This was a fun set of vintage items to receive! If you’re looking for super-authentic pieces, this might not be the subscription for you—the focus is much more about the vintage/thrift store aesthetic rather than connecting you with how-did-they-find-that collectible pieces. But I love the looks I’ve gotten thus far. They’re quirky and unexpected—the kinds of tees that’d stand out to me in a consignment store. As we (slowly) transition from winter to spring, I’m SO excited to start showing off these fun tees beneath my favorite jeans and moto jackets!
