Unique Vintage March 2019 Review

Sometimes the package has a card in it, but this month it did not. You never quite know what you’re going to get with this subscription. It could be a party dress or one that you could wear to work. Let’s see what I got this month!

Unique Vintage March 2019 - Dress Front

Unique Vintage 1950s Style White and Multicolor Floral Border Print Darcy Swing Dress – Retail Value $98

Once again, I opened the package and fell in love with the fabric. I like colorful clothing, though!

I will say, this fabric has no stretch at all and this one was a tight fit (possibly because I am trying to cram a medium waist into a small dress because a larger size would gape around the bust). My husband had to zip me up, although I technically *could* fully inflate my lungs.

Although it’s not obvious in the pictures, the straps were adjustable, so I could make them way shorter since straps (in bras, in dresses, in camisoles, etc.) are often too long for me. They were adjustable over a fairly wide length range and stayed in place once adjusted.

Unique Vintage March 2019 - Dress Back

Here is a picture of the back.

This is more of a party or fun dress than a work-appropriate dress. You will get a mixture of both with this subscription. But if you have any fun spring/summer activities coming up (weddings, vacations, etc.), this subscription is an economical (if somewhat chancy) way of filling out your wardrobe. This one should work without a petticoat if you don’t have one or don’t want to wear one, too.

Just to be clear, these are vintage style dresses, not actual vintage dresses, and the subscription covers sizes XS to 4X, with everyone getting the same dress.

Verdict: The dress I received has a retail price of $98, which is a good value for this subscription at $41 over the cost of the dress plus shipping. The style is fun but not particularly practical. If you have outdoor events lined up for summertime, I can see this being a great option, with or without the petticoat.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, all boxes ship out at the same time of the month so it’s too late to get the March shipment. However, if you like the dress, you can order it from the link above. (Sign up for their email list; they have coupons and sales every now and then.)

Value Breakdown: This subscription costs $57 if you include shipping and you get one dress. Tax may also be charged now but that will vary by location.

  1. Wow!! I’ll have to try this box out in the future! I love vintage dresses!

    You look amazing in this dress and in all the past reviews!

    You also do great bead work & I love your cats!!

  2. Love this dress on you! So pretty! I’m curious to know how tall you are. I’m pretty short, so would like to know so that I can gauge how this would fit me length-wise. Thanks!

    • I am about 5’5″. I was standing pretty straight in these photos because the dress was a bit tight.

  3. You look beautiful in that dress…now you need to make a date to use it…!! 🙂

  4. What a gorgeous dress!

  5. Hi Ragan
    I love this dress on you. Just wondering about the fabric they use for their dresses- is it fairly opaque or are they sheer and you need to wear a slip under it? Also moving forward – I love seeing the dresses with the petticoat, but was wondering if you could model the appropriate dresses without petticoat as well. Petticoat’s look great on other people. Also wondering if you find the sizing a little on the small size?

    Thanks so much for your fantastic reviews!

  6. You look amazing as usual!! That dress is so pretty.

  7. You look fabulous!

  8. Such a beautiful dress!

  9. Wow! That dress is gorgeous and perfect for a springtime wedding!
