On the back of the information card, there’s information about the Give Back Box program, which encourages subscribers to donate used clothing and household items to Goodwill.
Ruffle Tier Top in Danger Red – retail $42.95 (VIP price: $29.95)
Spring has arrived on JustFab‘s website! My Boutique was filled with a lot of great transitional clothes and springy colors and patterns. As soon as I saw this top, I knew it would be this month’s pick. I am a huge fan of peplum waists, but this tiered ruffle waist is something I’ve never tried before.
In past months, I have ordered my normal size, so I didn’t think twice when ordering this top in a size small. Unfortunately, it is too big. The top looks so nicely fitted on the JustFab model, but the reality is that this top runs large, so I would recommend sizing down (this style is available in sizes XS-3X). I’m also weary of the construction quality; the fabric is 100% Vicose, flowy and soft, but the stitching at the waist is crooked and makes the ruffle look uneven and messy.
The sleeves are billowed with an elastic hem. Normally I am a big fan of this type of sleeve, but because the overall top runs big, I feel like my arms are swimming in fabric.
One other thing to mention is that this top wrinkles very easily. It arrived extremely wrinkled, but they ironed out totally fine. However, I noticed wrinkles and creases form shortly after wearing this top for the first time.
The back has a simple keyhole, with a button and elastic closure. The neck is wide enough that I was able to pull the top on without having to unbutton the keyhole, but it’s a nice touch.
For a nighttime look, I decided to tuck the longer layer into skinny denim to create a cropped top look. I’m already liking this top more like this! If I don’t exchange this top for a smaller size, I may tailor the top to officially make it a crop top. I don’t normally wear a lot of red but tailoring this would not only make the top more flattering on but also provide the right amount of color (and sass!). To finish this look, I wore the peep-toe booties I chose for this month’s ShoeDazzle and statement accessories with a similar neutral tone. So fun!
Verdict: I have mixed feelings about this month’s JustFab pick. If the construction of this top was better, I’d 100% feel that the $29.95 price tag is a great value. I don’t mind exchanging for a smaller size, but I would anticipate an equally poor construction quality, even if it fits better. Overall, I’d say this subscription is worth it, as I’ve found some unique and fun clothes so far and I’m really excited to see more seasonal pieces get added to My Boutique!
