Spring Blue Floral Chiffon Blouse, Size L – Listed Value $38

The light blue color and floral pattern of this sheer top will be cute and pretty for spring. This top is very comfortable and lightweight, but since it is sheer I’ll need to wear a cami underneath. I think this top would look cute paired with some white crop pants.

August Bamboo Sunglasses by Blue Planet Eyewear – Estimated Value $45

This particular pair of sunglasses is not on the Blue Planet Eyewear site, but they do have some fun new colors available in this style that retail for more than the $45 listed on this pair’s tag. I recently received a pair of sunglasses from Blue Planet Eyewear in another box, and I wear them every day—they are such great quality and so comfortable. Plus, they are from an eco-friendly company that gives back by donating a pair of corrective glasses for every pair of glasses they sell.

This style is much more feminine than my other pair, and the bamboo arms make them feel very lightweight despite the larger frames.

At first, I was afraid that these sunglasses weren’t the same quality as the other pair I own because the lightweight bamboo felt much different. I did notice that there’s a tiny area on the arm that’s splintered.

Fortunately, these have been working out just fine. I think the quality is great despite that tiny little crack in the bamboo. I love the large size of these frames, and the mirrored lenses are fun, too! These sunglasses also provide 100% UVA and UVB protection and are made from natural and recycled materials.my fashion crate styling subscription review may 2019 bentoy bookmark

Making Shirts Bookmark by Bentoy – Listed Value $4

This next item feels a little out of place in this box, since there are no books or notebooks to go with it. I guess the shirt collar design goes along with a fashion-based box. This bookmark is cute and stylish and would make a cute gift to go along with a book!

Here it is at the top of the info card. It would look even cuter on a book page, for sure.

Lip Service Mini Lip Product Gift Set by Mirabella – Retail Value $30 (Found here for $15.00)

This lip set includes a cute lip mask and three mini lip products—a lip liner, lip gloss, and a lipstick all in a bag with a fun phrase on the front. These products are all free from parabens and gluten in addition to being cruelty-free.

Mini Lip Definer Pencil in Spunky – Retail Value $5.00

This liner is a nice berry pink color. It goes on smoothly creating a perfect outline. It was a nice complement to the lipstick in the kit.

Mini Mulberry Mocha Lipstick – Retail Value $8.00

This lipstick was my favorite of the lip products! The color is actually a little bolder than what I usually wear, but the shade was very flattering and the formula itself was great. It went on smooth and had a light, creamy finish with a very slight sheen that stayed on for a while. This mini size is perfect, too, since I’m not sure I’ve ever finished a whole tube of lipstick before!

Mini Angelic Luxe Advanced Formula Lip Gloss – Retail Value $6.00

This lip gloss is a pinkish nude that has a little bit of metallic sparkle to it. It is subtle, so it just gives your lips a nice shine. The formula is moisturizing thanks to the lanolin and essential oils in it. It actually has a slight vanilla scent that I liked.

Here are the products swatched. From top to bottom, you’ll see the lip definer, lip gloss, and lipstick.

Here I am wearing all three. They work really well together, and I love that they are all smaller sizes that I can throw into my purse!

Plump & Condition Lip Mask

I’m not really one to use lip masks, let alone plumping ones, but I can appreciate that they included one in this set! I haven’t ever really had the desire to have fuller lips, and my experience with lip masks is that they just don’t stay on. Just as this mask was about to slip off my face, I noticed a little bit of stinging. I decided to go ahead and remove it. I’m sure it was part of the plumping process, but I just wasn’t feeling it. I did enjoy surprising my husband with my oversized jelly lips though!

The following items are only in the Premium Box:

Blue Button-Up Dress – Listed Value $55

I was excited to this dress in this month’s box, but wow, my legs are not ready for a dress this short! I couldn’t help but feel like Tom Cruise in Risky Business in this blue dress. It is super comfortable, and I love that it is longer in the back (that makes me feel a bit better about the length), but I still think it might be too short for me to pull off. It is also very tight across the chest, which always happens to me with button-up tops. I think wearing a cami underneath doesn’t look too bad. I do love that the sleeves roll up and have a strap and button to hold them in place.

Sorry for the awkward picture where I might be showing too much, but I did want to point out that this dress has pockets! While I am always a fan of pockets, this dress fits a little too tightly for me to be able to utilize them. (Hence, the awkward photo.)

my fashion crate styling subscription review may 2019 cotton button up shirtdress

Here is a close-up of the dress. It’s made of a nice pale blue cotton fabric. It seems to wrinkle easily. (I steamed it before these photos.) I haven’t washed it yet, so maybe that will help.

my fashion crate styling subscription review may 2019 you are awesome bag

You Are Awesome Cotton ECO Tote Bag by Love of Fashion – Listed Value $30 (Found here for $11.99)

This canvas tote is a solid, nice-quality bag. It even has a little pocket on the inside, but the price still seems to be a bit inflated. The Amazon listing price seems a bit more on par. The message on the outside is fun—I am actually planning on gifting this bag to my sister which makes the message even better, since it will let her know how I feel about her! I always have a bag like this lying around so I can throw things in it and go. This tote holds a lot and folds up easily when you’re done, which is great.

Verdict: I enjoyed this month’s curation from My Fashion Crate, especially in comparison to what I got last month. The sunglasses and lip set are definitely my favorite items, and the tote is a great item to gift to someone you think is awesome. The bookmark felt a bit out of place, but it was still cute and useful. I really like the button-up dress, but I don’t think I can pull it off, unfortunately. Maybe I can use it as a beach cover-up, or throw it over some shorts? Overall, this was a great box for transitioning from spring to summer. I always think the clothing items are a bit inflated in price, but I feel like I still get decent value from the box as a whole. 

The total value for the Premium box comes to $202 (or $183.99 if you consider the Amazon value for the tote) this month, which is great for a $55.90 ($49.95 + $4.95 shipping) box. As for the Essentials box, the value is $117, which is still great for a $40.95 ($35 + $5.95 shipping) box. For the $14.95 extra paid for the Premium box, I received the blue dress and tote bag (valued at $85).

  1. Thanks to everyone for reading and sharing your opinions! I am always honest in my reviews and yes, I do try to stay positive for the most part because I think a lot of items are based on personal taste and preferences, especially the clothing. I’ve been reviewing this box since they first started, and some months are definitely better than others, but looking back there are a lot of items that I still use and enjoy…and one of them is actually that OMG headband- although I NEVER use the bow. Lol. But I’ve found that it is really helpful in holding my hair back when cleaning my face or using a sheet mask, which is the intended purpose! I just hope that reading the reviews helps you decide whether a box is for you or not for you! 🙂 Also, thanks to those who shared some great styling tips for that blue dress! You all really know how to make any fashion item work! <3

  2. you should try to wear cropped leggings under the dress it would be cute

  3. I think you can make the shirt tunic/dress thing work, some capri length leggings and a cami underneath would look cute on you.

    But I do agree this box is weird and expensive for what appears to be the quality you are getting on the items.

  4. I also appreciate your positivity. Who is this box for? It seems to be too high of a subscription for someone on a budget ($600 a year) but the quality looks terrible. I don’t like when I have to try to find a spot in my closet for ill fitting pieces. Could you turn that blue “dress” into a cover up? Sure. But why didn’t they just send a cover up? It would have fit a broader audience.

  5. This sub seems really about quantity over quality. There are a lot of people who would like this. I would consider giving it a chance. But the dress is already short, and you say it’s cotton. It’s gonna get shorter when you wash it.

  6. I love your upbeat optimism Brandi! But this is also the box I love to hate, lol. I absolutely don’t get it’s appeal. I feel like I could take $50 to my local thrift store and walk away with more items that are nicer and fit better than what they send you.

    That blue dress totally feels like Risky Business too! I think it looks nice in the first photo, but its length makes it seem a bit like you forgot your pants. You are such a good sport though. I thoroughly enjoy reading these reviews. 🙂

  7. This is the first time I’ve seen this sub not be completely terrible. It’s still not great and very overpriced. $56 for this box, when you can buy FFF for $50? Yeah, no. The ‘dress’ looks like a shirt to me. It would also be cute with white cropped pants, open with the cami.

  8. Brandi, I love your reviews, but honestly, I don’t know why MSA continues to review this sub (especially so often—there were two reviews of those horrible OMG atrocities recently). The items seem like a sad combination of poorly made, clearance rack clothes and dollar store items. You all should drop this one and review something more worthy of your effort and time.

    • This box is so terrible, and I don’t understand why there are two people reviewing it. For what they are claiming the clothing items cost, they should be a LOT more flattering and fitting, and they never are.

    • I agree. Plus the reviews are almost always WAY more positive than basic logic would dictate. And with extensive knowledge of subscription boxes I almost feel like there must be some sort of favor involved here. Terribly cheap items and lots of repeats yet not only are the reviews oddly favorable, but two per month? I’m baffled honestly.
