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.
