The only way of enjoying this warm summer weather lately, is by gazing out the window at work, or on the drive home. But after finishing a night shift, I took the chance to head to the beach with my husband – camera in tow! It was a fantastic summers day – a good opportunity for some quality time with Ross, as well as to photograph my latest subscription from CHC Vintage!
The Cover Up
In all honesty, I was a little stuck as to how to style this dress. It’s not my typical vintage look, so instead I embraced my more modern style. Just because I love the wartime era, doesn’t mean I dress that way all the time!
Being particularly ‘see through’, CHC Vintage had advised wearing a slip dress underneath or as a cover up. I had a nude dress to wear, with heels and a denim jacket in case the weather turned. But, as the sun was shining, I wanted to make the most of it at the beach!
It was very comfortable and light to wear – the sizing was perfect, as the other dresses from CHC Vintage have been. The blush pink colour was perfect for my style and the detailing on the dress was stunning. If you have learnt anything from my clothing reviews, you’ll know I love an interesting neckline; this square shape was a great detail. The dress has beautiful embroidery and decorative mirrors that catch the sunlight. The slits on either side run up to the top of my thigh, so it was comfortable to walk in and flattering of my shape; not too tight, despite the lack of stretch in the fabric.
I have really enjoyed the dresses sent by CHC Vintage, this is the last in my 3 month subscription. Each dress I received was unique, but fitted into my vintage style perfectly. If you are interested in trying out one of the many CHC Vintage subscriptions, mention a friend in your survey and get a free month for both of you!
I will certainly miss receiving a new vintage dress each month, but I am sure I will be ordering from them again in the near future!
