My Fashion Crate December 2019 Review
My Fashion Crate always includes an insert with descriptions of the items and their values. The front side of the page lists everything in the Essential box, while the back gives you the Premium box details. They include pictures, which I always appreciate.
Burgundy Holiday Blouse, size L – Listed Value $38.00
This top is not quite what I would expect in a December box, but the color feels seasonally appropriate and their suggestion of pairing it with a sweater and boots does make it work for winter. I love the color and I think the wrap style at the front is fun with that asymmetrical hemline. I did have to let out those buckles a tiny bit because it was a little tight on my chest. This one definitely fits more like a medium than a large! This could be a great dressy top if paired with a blazer or would make a nice holiday outfit with a sweater over the top.
Gold Triangle Hair Clip – Listed Value $10.00 (Buy a pack of 10 for $17.99 here)
You may have noticed this cute triangle hair clip in my hair in the previous photos. I love the simple gold clip and I especially love the way it is worn in your hair. I am always looking for a simple way to hold back just a bit of hair to keep it out of my face without pulling or taking away from how I’ve styled it and this clip is perfect for that! Looks like this is a perfect bridesmaid gift, too!
Handmade Holiday Cup Cozy by MissCrazyHandmade – Listed Value $10.00
This is a cute seasonal item and I love that it comes from a small shop! This handmade cup cozy is well-made and will add a nice seasonal touch to your mug. I’ll keep this in my car for the next time I get to treat myself to a peppermint mocha while I’m out.
Power Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick by Laritzy – Retail Value $20.00
I’m no stranger to Laritzy and it’s one of those brands I don’t actually mind since the colors are usually pretty flattering for me. This one is a nice red that starts out brick red but takes on more of a berry tone after a few minutes. I do have to be very careful applying it because once this one is on, it has some serious staying power and dries down quickly. I was pretty happy with both the color and formula, although I will probably use a lip liner since I felt like it was a bit feathered at the edges of my lips. It was comfortable on my lips and almost felt like a stain.
Here it is on. Bright and cheery!
The following items are only in the Premium Box:
Holiday Cozy Sweater, size L – Listed Value $50.00
I love the color of this sweater and the waffle weave! It is a nice lightweight sweater that you can tie at the waist or wear open and while I don’t like the way I styled it here, I think I can easily find a great way to wear it this winter! It’s nice and big making it easy to wrap yourself up in and I am looking forward to wearing this soon. While I do like this, I have to say that the listed value of $50 is a bit laughable for what it is.
Plaid Zipper Cosmetic Pouch by Riah – Listed Value $18.00
This cute little makeup bag is fun with this black and white plaid print. It still feels seasonal to me for some reason, but it’s definitely a style you can use year-round! This is a smaller cosmetic bag and it does have what looks like a wipeable interior, which will be good for traveling.
Verdict: This was another month of My Fashion Crate where I really enjoyed the clothing choices. As usual, the values feel a bit inflated, but they both felt like decent quality and overall, I loved the seasonal feel of this box. The cosmetic pouch and cup cozy are cute and useful, but the lipstick and the triangle clip have to be my favorite items. The clip is cute and the lip color is one I’ll be wearing a lot in the next coming weeks, especially since it seems like it will last all day through the long holiday events!
The total value for the Premium box using listed values comes to $146.00 this month, which is great for a $55.90 ($49.95 + $5.95 shipping) box, even with some inflation in the values. As for the Essential box, the value is $78.00, which is good for a $40.95 ($35 + $5.95 shipping) box. For the $14.95 extra paid for the Premium box, I received the holiday sweater and cosmetic pouch (valued at $68.00).
