CHC Vintage Outfit March 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.
1950s/1960s Midi Skirt
1960s/1970s Sleeveless Turtleneck
This is great for me. The skirt is so lightweight and comfortable, it’ll be great for summer, and the turtleneck (the card suggested tucking it in, though this is not something I usually do) will go with some pretty bold jewelry if I decide to make some to match. This seems work-appropriate, too, though I would probably want to build up my triceps muscles a bit before going sleeveless in public!
1980s/1990s Beaded Shoulder Bag
This was the accessory for the month and I love it. I cannot even imagine how long it took to make this. It is in really good condition, though, and the zipper works well. If I want to go somewhere and not carry a huge bag, this is sufficient to fit a few essentials and the strap means that I won’t accidentally set it down somewhere (like I totally would with a clutch).
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 said that I’d be happy to try outfits from different decades and I think this month’s selections absolutely worked for me, plus they are seasonally appropriate so I can start wearing them right away (I live in the South; we’re already having some days in the 70s).
