My Fashion Crate September 2018 Review

They always include an insert with descriptions of the items and their value. The front side lists everything you will receive in the Essentials box while the back also shows what you get in the Premium box and they include pictures which I always appreciate.

Hanna Ivory Tunic Blouse by Gilli, Size L- Listed Value $38

I really like this blouse! Once again, it is a bit tight across my chest, but it’s such a classic style that it will be a great piece for any wardrobe. It is a bit sheer and I probably should have had a cami under it for these photos (sorry!), but I love the lightweight feel of this. It would make for a great stylish workplace top!

Here it is with the sleeves rolled all the way down.

Blue Smoke Fringe Multi Drop Earrings by Sterling Forever – Retail Value $46, Listed Value $48

I love the blue smoke color of these. I typically wear small earrings, so these are a bit outside of my comfort zone, but as far as the curation of the box, these totally fit in as you’ll see when we get to some of the other items! We also received a $30 + free shipping gift card for Sterling Forever. 

Here are a few more pictures of the earrings closeup and on! While they are large, they didn’t feel incredibly heavy in my ears and I actually loved the way they looked. It was a fun boho vibe and I definitely will be looking for an excuse to wear these soon!

Kanio Sky Bracelet – Retail Value $24

I love how all of the jewelry came in its own separate packaging, and again, this bracelet came with a $7 gift card. It also came with care instructions and a note on the meaning behind this bracelet. It is made with Blue Matte Sapphire Agate and the beads are so unique and interesting to look at. 

From Kanio: “Agate is one of the oldest good luck and healing stones, which comes through in its properties such as courage, protection, love, and longevity.”

This fits comfortably on my wrist and had two different loops that you could thread the clasp through to adjust the size. I have it on the tightest setting here and you can see it still has plenty of room to move around on my wrist. I love the summer vibes this bracelet gives me with its beautiful blue hues! I am wearing it in the clothing photos if you’d like to see how it looks on.

Deep Moisturizing Lipstick in Blush by Mollie Jacob – Retail Value $22

How fierce and beautiful is the packaging of this lipstick? I love it and want to carry it around with me everywhere! I didn’t notice any added moisture when I wore it, but I do love that it is paraben, fragrance, petrochemical, and cruelty-free. Plus it is made from natural ingredients.

The shade is called blush, but it ended up being so matte pink that it almost looked washed out on my lips. I ended up using a lip liner to help define it a bit more and while it definitely isn’t a color I can wear regularly, it will be fun if I’m going for a fun boho or 60’s vibe. I am wearing it in all of the photos for a closer look of it on.

The following items are only in the Premium Box:

Blue Multi Floral Print Dress by Timing – Listed Value $55

This is the dress that ties it all together for me! The earrings and bracelet both match the blues in the fabric and the pale pink lipstick paired with this dress felt so right to me. I really love the colors, the patterns and how comfortable it is! It is a bit short on me, but I think I can actually make this one work as long as I wear it when I am out without my kids and don’t have to chase them around!

Fair Seas Supply Co. Turkish Towel – Retail Value $44

Yay yay yay! I was so excited to receive this towel because this was one thing I had my eye on after reading this review of Anna’s. I know summer is almost over and it’s a little late to be receiving a Turkish towel, but I have plans to use it as a blanket on those wonderful fall days that I’m hoping for. Plus, the golden yellow is the perfect color to transition from summer to fall. I do not own any other Turkish towels, but I can see why they are so popular! I love that it’s so large, lightweight and folds up so compactly. Can you tell that I love it?

Verdict: I think it’s safe to say that My Fashion Crate is finally hitting their stride! I really enjoyed everything in this box and thought it was all beautiful with the mix of blue hues and that killer lipstick tube design. Everything felt very trendy, but not so over the top trendy that someone who is more shy about fashion, such as me, couldn’t appreciate it. Then, of course, there is that towel! I also noticed that they have made a lot of great changes such as adding plus sizes and also offering an accessories-only option. These are smart moves on their part and I’m so excited to see what they come out with next month! 

The total for the Premium box comes to $229 this month, which I think is an awesome value for a $54.90 ($49.95 + $4.95 shipping) box. As for the Essentials box, the value is $130 which is still a great value for a $39.95 ($35 + $4.95 shipping) box. When comparing the two subscriptions, for $14.95 extra for the Premium box we received the floral dress and towel valued at $99.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? If you order before the 15th you can still receive the September box, after that it will be the October box. From My Fashion Crate:

All packages ship on the 2nd week of the month. Your package takes 3~5 days to arrive after the notification email. Shipping takes a few days longer for Canada and International orders.

  1. How is the sizing for this box? I couldn’t find a size chart on the website. I’m guessing it’s women’s sizes but do you find it runs small or large or true-to-size? Thank you!

  2. The Gilli shirt looks good with the shorts from Stitch fix. I’ve loved all the Gilli clothes I’ve tried, great review.

    I think your son has the right idea about makeup and dress up. The extra lipsticks and eyeliners are great for adding a little something to Halloween costumes.’

  3. Great review!!! I’m with the other lady commenting above. I love Turkish towels. My bathroom stays moist and other towels begin to mildew. I’m so happy to have discovered Turkish towels via this site and PSMH box.

  4. I love this box! I certainly don’t need it, but I love everything except the tassel earrings which look great on you! Also, the lipstick is a gorgeous shade for you and almost looks like a “your lips but better” shade. Maybe for my birthday month depending on how the sizing falls.

  5. you look like a model! gorgeous! Turkish Towels are amazing, I switched my bath and hand towels out for them and have so much more space. They feel “cleaner” as well because they dry to quickly.

    • Aww thanks, Jody! I’ll definitely have to test it out as a bath towel! Those would free up a lot more closet space for sure! 🙂

  6. What a lovely review! I am thinking with you for a model, there will be a lot more people signing up for this. You look gorgeous.

    • Oh my goodness! You’re too sweet! Thank you! 🙂

  7. Nice review! I like everything in the crate except for the lipstick. Looks good on you but too “pink” for my skin tone.

    • Thanks, Katie! It is quite pink! My 2-year-old son grabbed the tube today and put it on his cheeks…and I’m thinking he has the right idea! 😂

  8. I love you review and all the pictures of you wearing everything. You make me want to get this box! 😘

    • Aww, thanks, Anna!! 🙂 Let me know what you think if you end up subscribing!

  9. Great review, Brandi. This is totally my style! Do you mind sharing how tall you are? Thinking of subscribing and trying to decide how the dress will fit me.

    • Hi Laura! I’m 5’7 for reference! And I think that since I’m not currently at my ideal weight (am I ever? Lol) that it would fit even longer on a more slender frame if that makes sense! My larger chest definitely brought it up a little at the bottom! Hope that helps! 🙂

  10. They did a good job curating the box. I always get a little nervous with ‘fashion’ subscriptions since style can be hit and miss, but it looks like they really think things through and included some quality items.
