The company was founded with the aim of providing a fun and hassle-free shopping experience for women.
  2. Do they claim to be sustainable? They don’t state anything on their site regarding efforts in sustainability, or ways that they give back to the community. Read this article, 13 Easy Ways To Know If A Brand Is Fast Fashion by Panaprium, for tell-tale signs of a fast fashion company.
  3. Do they offer free shipping? They offer free shipping over $150.

Clothing Review and Order Details

In this section of the review, I will be thoroughly reviewing each item I ordered and will provide detailed information about the shipment and return/refund process. Keep reading for more!

Review

I ordered the below items on 9/6/2023 to my address in North Carolina (United States). I paid a total of $218.46 to theLaigles, L.L.C via PayPal. The charge appears on my credit card statement as “PAYPAL *FP BOUTIQUE”. View Order Confirmation 

1) Judy Blue High Rise Dark Wash Front Seam Skinny Jeans With Front Slit

  • Color, Size, and Cost: Dark Wash / 9 / $68.90
  • Country: Made in Vietnam
  • Material: 93% Cotton, 6% Polyester, and 1% Spandex 
  • Description: These jeans are VERY stretchy and feel decently durable. They have seams running down the front of both legs and slits at the bottom. The front pockets are on the shallow side.
  • Expectation: They are exactly what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance.
  • Quality: In my opinion, the quality is decent. However, the back seam is slightly crooked. They are comparable to a pair of jeans you might find at Target or Kohl’s.
  • Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and they fit at least two sizes too big. They are so stretchy that you can go down in size. View my body measurements for size reference.
  • Value: In my opinion, these jeans are fairly priced.

2) Judy Blue Bethany Blues Light Wash Destroyed Shorts Overalls

  • Color, Size, and Cost: Light Wash / M / $65.90
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material: 92% Cotton, 6% Polyester, and 2% Spandex
  • Description: These shorts overalls are extremely stretchy, and the material feels somewhat durable. They have buttons on both sides, a non-functional fly, adjustable straps,  fairly deep front pockets, and a large chest pocket.
  • Expectation: They are what I was expecting, for the most part, in terms of overall appearance. They are just a little bit darker in person.
  • Quality: In my opinion, the quality is decent. They are comparable to a pair of shorts overalls you might find at Target or Kohl’s.
  • Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and they fit well. However, the side buttons flare out from the front, which I think is a design flaw. I also don’t think these are best suited for my body shape. View my body measurements for size reference.
  • Value: In my opinion, these shorts overalls are fairly priced.

3) Judy Blue Mid Rise Dark Wash Heavy Destroyed Straight Leg Jeans

  • Color, Size, and Cost: Dark Wash / 7 / $68.90
  • Country: Made in Vietnam
  • Material: 93% Cotton, 6% Polyester, and 1% Spandex
  • Description: These jeans are extremely stretchy,  and feel fairly durable. They have frayed hems, large rips all over the front, lightly destroyed pockets, and front pockets that are somewhat shallow.
  • Expectation: They are exactly what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance.
  • Quality: In my opinion, the quality is decent. However, the back seam is pretty crooked. Since the other two were acceptable in this aspect, I’m going to assume that I received a pair that happened to not be sewn perfectly (and I understand that this happens sometimes). They are comparable to a pair of jeans you might find at Target or Kohl’s.
  • Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and they fit one size too small. They are definitely comfortable, but because they are so stretchy, I would prefer a smaller size. View my body measurements for size reference.
  • Value: In my opinion, these jeans are fairly priced.

Customer Support Experience

  • Customer service was very fast to respond and promptly gave me the return address.
  • However, in their first response to my return request, they told me, We are unable to process a return for the Judy Blue Bethany Blues Light Wash Destroyed Shorts Overalls because you did receive 20% cash back for this final sale item”. I had no clue what they were talking about, so I scoured their website and found the ‘20% Cashback! Final’ category under the ‘Shop All’ tab. I clicked through all of the pages and finally found the shorts overalls listed. I did not recall purchasing anything from this category nor anything that was labeled as Final Sale. So, I went back to the product page for the shorts overalls, and lo and behold, there is NO MENTION ANYWHERE that they were Final Sale. When I found this item, I had actually searched under the ‘Judy Blue Shorts’ category.
  • Per the above point, I let them know how misleading it was to put that item under multiple categories and to not list IN THE PRODUCT PAGE that it was Final Sale. I threatened a PayPal claim (because at this point, I am not wasting time), and they promptly apologized and are allowing me to return it.

Is Freckled Poppy Legit or a Scam?

In this section of the review, I will check their site for originality, discuss any suspicious information found, answer whether this company is legitimate or not, and let you know my recommendation. Keep reading for more! 

Plagiarism & Analysis

According to Copyleaks (premium), the below plagiarism is detected:

Additional Notes:

  • Lots of grammatical errors and spelling typos are found on many product pages. Examples include, “THe sizing below is conservative”, “…everywhere here at FP prefers a more relaxed short so when between sizes we prefer the more relaxed fit of a size up”, “TTS 7 with a curvy figure andt the medium…”. I am astonished at how frequent the obvious writing errors are. It makes me think that this shop is either run overseas or the person who overlooks the website is careless.
  • Some of their Final Sale items explicitly state in the product title that they are Final Sale, while others are completely incognito (the shorts overalls I ordered are an example).
  • They have two websites, https://freckledpoppy.co/ and https://freckledpoppy.com/. The .co website does link to the .com website, but I have no clue why both exist.

Do I Recommend Freckled Poppy?

Based on my experience so far (I am waiting on the refund), they are a legitimate site. I paid for my items, received them within the estimated time frame, and have been approved for a return. The refund is pending.

With that being said, I personally would not shop here again.

While the items arrived lightning fast, customer service was very responsive, and the quality of the clothing seems okay, I take big issue with shops misleading customers. Their return policy states that Final Sale items are non-refundable (this includes items ending in .99, items included in the 20% Cashback category, and other items). Some items found in this hidden 20% Cashback category are also listed under other categories, which leads to accidentally purchasing Final Sale items without knowing. Some items state on their product page that they are Final Sale, others don’t. Again, this is extremely misleading to customers, and they need to seriously redo their website layout and item categorization method.

If you choose to shop here, always shop with caution. I urge you to read reviews by other customers as well.

Poll – Vote!

Question: If I opened a women’s clothing store on reviewmycloset.com, would you be interested in shopping?

Each item would be hand-selected, and personally reviewed by me (I would leave an honest and helpful review on every single product page). Items that don’t get my seal of approval would never get listed. Honesty and transparency are non-negotiables.
