I love the silvery rainbow mailer! My Fashion Crate ships all over the world and comes in two levels: The Premium Box is $49.95 plus shipping and will be packed with 5-8 items including shirts, dresses, separates, shoes, jewelry, accessories or gift cards (Value up to $300). The Essential Box is $35 plus shipping and will be packed with 3-4 items including shirts, dresses, separates, shoes, jewelry, accessories or gift cards (Value up to $200).

I am reviewing the Premium Box. Here’s a look at everything in my box!

Start by figuring out which size you need using the sizing chart. I ordered my daughters a size small and the items were kind of big.

I received a mini brochure with info on all the items in the box.

The first page shows all the items available in both boxes along with the retail value.

The back features the additional items that come in the Premium Box. There was also an estimated box value and info on how to share your box on social media.

There was a coupon for $25 off of an order at Sweet & Spark, an online boutique that offers vintage jewelry pieces.

They also offer clothing, home decor, and you can even sort it by decade!

Loveriche Flirty Blush Floral Blouse ($42) I couldn’t find this blouse online so the value is taken from the card and it seems like a fair price for a boutique clothing item. By the way, I found most of these items in the My Fashion Crate online shop and they offer a special discounted price for subscribers.

The sleeves have a band of fabric around the edges that gives them a tapered look.

The sleeves also have romantic ruffles along their length and the front has a v-neck. The fabric is polyester.

Here is my daughter modeling the blouse. Very feminine and floral. Gemma is wearing a small, which fits sizes 3-5.

The next item came in its own pouch along with a code for $30 off of a purchase at sterlingforever.com.

Sterling Forever Leather Fringe Reversible Black & Cobalt Blue Tassel Necklace (Originally $79, now $45) is definitely a statement piece!

It features a 14K gold-plated brass pendant, real leather tassels, and a 3″ extender. One side has cobalt blue leather…

…and the other has black! The tassels vary in length and have that same golden material at their tips.

Maria Shireen® Rose Gold Hair Tie Bracelet Set ($12) The next item also came in its own pouch!

This is a lightweight plastic bangle bracelet that helps you keep your hair tie nearby but also relieves the pressure from the band. It came with a promo code for 50% off a purchase at mariashireen.com.

I think this is a neat idea! It looks much more comfortable and stylish than wearing the hair tie on its own. Plus, it came with three hair ties – black, white, and silver sparkle – but you can use your own from the store.

Manna Kadar Eye Candy Priming Shadow Stick in Sugar ($24) Manna Kadar shows up in subscription boxes fairly often but this is the first time I’ve seen one of these shadow sticks!

Eye Candy is considered a primer and eyeshadow all-in-one.

I’ve used it as a base under my regular eyeshadow and it does make the color look truer when I start with this base first, but you can also use it as a shadow. My Fashion Crate also suggests using it as a lip primer, highlighter, or under-eye concealer.

The color “Sugar” is described as matte beige and it’s pretty neutral. I think this is a pretty good product!

NOTE: The next two items are included in the Premium Box only! 

Honey Belle Breeze Ivory Floral Shorts ($35 listed on card) Just like the shirt, this item was new-in-bag and had the tags on it.

These are made of rayon and feature a ruffle at the bottom of the legs.

They have a drawstring waist.

Here’s Gemma again with the shorts. Like the shirt, they are feminine and flowery and flowy.

The next item came in its own bag.

Deux Lux Ivory/Pearl Barrow/Bow Clutch (MSRP on tag says $105, card says $90, found online for $71.44 with shipping) What a new take on a classic look!

This bag is made of vegan “leather” and has a removable chain crossbody strap.

The inside is lined and there is a zippered pocket. It’s kind of smelly from the material it’s made of but hopefully that should subside.

I thought My Fashion Crate chose lovely items to put in this box and each product was so pretty and sweet, perfect for girly girls like my daughters. According to my oldest, the shirt was exactly like what she would try on at a boutique but then put back because she couldn’t afford it. With this subscription, it was almost like paying for the shirt and getting the rest of the items for free! I think it would have been nice if the shirt and shorts went together but then again, I think the pieces are cute on their own and that’s ok too. Not including the gift cards/promo codes, this box had a value of around $229.44, using the lowest available prices and not including shipping. There was an additional $55 worth of codes plus a half off coupon, which brings the value up if you use them. Either way, I am extremely pleased with the value and items in this box. My daughters are fighting over the shorts and the shirt made my oldest’s short-list of stuff to pack for a weekend getaway.

    Leslie, thank you for your kind comments! This box definitely leans very young, and I agree, it is boho. I probably would have loved it decades ago but my daughters love it now. I’ve shown the sneak peeks to my oldest and she can’t wait for the next box!

    And by older women, I mean myself. The clothing looks beautiful on your daughter!

    The spoilers for the next box looks nice and this box surprised me with the level of quality for the price. The items are cute, but I think this box will appeal to younger women and those who are young at heart. Sort of boho looking style. Just my opinion; I would never want to suggest older women shouldn’t wear clothing like this.
