My Fashion Crate April 2019 Review
This information card was included. On the front is information about items included in both the Essentials box and the Premium box, and on the reverse is information about the items included in the Premium box only.
White Checkered Blouse – Listed Value $45
This top is super cute! I love the layered look! I don’t love that it’s sleeveless, but that can be remedied with any number of outer layers. This is a lightweight crepe, and with the design, it is just perfect for spring. It also fits well and is comfortable, and I think it looks pretty good on me, too. (Plus everything looks better with the sunglasses I got from the March Once Upon a Book Club subscription!)
OMG Mega Hair Band by Double Dare – Retail Value $8
OK, so I would obviously never wear this outside of my home, but I’m not actually sure that’s the intent. It’s a soft and absorptive terry cloth material, so I am thinking it is for keeping wet hair off of your face while you apply makeup. The bow is detachable. OMG! It’s pretty different, but it might also be useful.
OMG! Hair Up Bow Pins by Double Dare – Retail Value $10
These pins I’m not so sure about. They are not my style at all, and I’m trying to think of whose style they might be, and I’m drawing a blank. They are big clips, so if they didn’t have the large stuffed bows, I would think, OK, they are for clipping my hair up during styling, but the bows would get in the way. Fortunately, the bows are removable so they can still be used that way. Maybe my 12-year-old niece would like the bows.
Stockholm Rose Nourishing Hand Cream by Duft & Doft – Retail Value $8.66, Listed Value $12
What is it about Korea that allows them to make creams that are so much creamier than the ones we have here? This hand cream is pretty inexpensive, but it has a really luxe feeling! It’s super thick and creamy, but it absorbs quickly. It also has a nice rose fragrance that is not too strong and dissipates pretty quickly. It left my hands feeling smooth and soft.
Silver Leather Phone Pocket by iDecoz – Retail Value $9.99
This phone pocket is such a good idea! It keeps everything together when you just want to put your phone and cards in your pocket instead of carrying a bag. I get so paranoid about losing something when I have multiple things in my pockets, and this way everything stays in a nice bundle that’s easy to feel if it falls out. Plus I think the silver is a fun color to receive!
The following items are in the Plus Size Premium Box only.
Darling Spring Jacket – Listed Value $55
It turns out I’m in charge of The Matrix! Haha! That’s how this duster makes me feel. It actually looks really cute, and I love the half belt across the back. It’s an unlined lightweight rayon blend, so it is probably cool enough for most areas of the country at this time of year. I don’t think black is really a springtime color, but on the other hand, I think I wear black all year anyway, so it’s all good.
Black Floral Lace Socks – Listed Value $9
These socks are really a strange inclusion in this box. They are not my style at all. I was trying to decide if they might have more appeal as fold-over socks, but I just don’t think I would wear them. They are also not particularly comfortable, nor are they something I would wear around the house as the info card suggests. Do people wear black lace around the house? Is this a fun new thing I am missing out on? My niece might like these also.
The Verdict: This month’s package from My Fashion Crate was not my favorite. It might just be my particular tastes, but I really wasn’t into the OMG stuff or the socks. On the other hand, the clothes fit well this month and were pretty cute, and the hand cream is fantastic! And I still feel like you get a lot with this subscription! The total value of the items is $149 this month, so the value is awesome!
