Young and Wild Tee – Value $20

This shirt is very fitted, and just not really me. I’ll be passing it along to a younger friend 🙂

LAEX Card Holder – Value $27

It’s hard to see in the picture, but this is de-bossed with the words “Be Foolish.” I like the simplicity of the design and I’m loving neon lately, so I think I’ll use this for occasions where I need to fit everything in from my big purse into a little clutch!

Jellyfish Combo Pack – Value $28

This Jellyfish set is definitely my favorite item in the box this month. I’ve wanted a smartphone tripod forever, and I honestly don’t know why I didn’t buy one, but now I’m glad I didn’t! I probably won’t get as much use out of the sunshield – I wish it was laptop sized!

Verdict: I paid $30 plus $8 shipping for the August Fancy box (I have the grandfathered rate since I am an original subscriber). I received over $100 worth of product and I’m happy with the value this month’s box. Not every product is for me, but the smart phone tripod set alone has me thrilled. I’ll use everything besides the shirt. (And maybe the ice cube mold since I seem to have collected a dozen various ice cube trays this summer thanks to subscription boxes). What did you think of the Fancy box this month?

  1. I just got my box yesterday. I didn’t get the jellyfish set and sun shield, and now I’m totally blanking on what I got in their place, if anything (I’m at work) – which shows, I guess, how little the items made an impact on me. I’m wondering if I got screwed and only got four items in mine???

    The shirt was cool and I was surprised by how much I liked the book. The little card holder is cute.

    PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, FANCY, NO MORE ICE CUBE MOLDS! Wow, I can make every shape of ice cube imaginable now, thanks to Fancy.

    I really need to cancel this subscription and just promise myself I won’t come over here and read your reviews of future boxes so I won’t regret the decision. I say this every month. :\

  2. I received the exact same box and absolutely HATED it. It was my first and last. So sad, I saw all your reviews before I bought it…:(

  3. This month’s box was pretty good with the exception of the magazine that was included. For the Men’s box I received a magazine “Man of the World” which I frankly don’t understand what it’s supposed to represent. The sphere moulds are cool and I agree that the jellyfish combo box was awesome!

    I also received a butterfly tee by stay dry…pretty cool as well!

  4. The sphere ice cubes are great! I’m really happy with this month’s box. I keep telling myself I’m going to cancel and then they wow me with one!

  5. I LOVE the Sphere ice cube mold! Please follow up and tell us how well they worked so I know if I need to wishlist this item or not!
