Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review – May 2015
The fee for this service is $20 a month, and that fee goes toward whichever items you choose to keep. If you keep all 5 items you get a 25% discount.
The Subscription Box: Wantable Style Edit
The Cost: $20 for the styling fee plus the cost of clothing.
The Products: 5 pieces selected by a stylist based on your preferences. Keep all 5 save 25%
Ships to: US
Here is my order invoice. The merchandise total is $345 and the keep-all discount is $86.25, so factoring that in plus the $20 credit, this box would cost $218.75 to keep all five items. (Roughly $43.75 an item).
These are my preferences for the Style Edit subscription. I decided to go with a more edgy/rock look than the bohemian Free People look I’ve favored in the past.
Kut from the Kloth Denim Jacket – Cost to Keep $78
I’ve become a fan of Kut from the Kloth denim thanks to Stitch Fix. (I own several pairs of their jeans now). This jacket is really well made, and I like the color and cut of the denim too. It’s a win!
BCBGeneration Dipped Hem Dress – Cost to Keep $68
The material of this dress is so light-weight and soft – perfect for summer. I also like the subtle detail of the diagonal seam in the fron of the dress. I’m not crazy about the assymeticral hemline or the length though – it’s a little too much for me with a dress that is already a little loose/tent-like.
I fell in love with with the BB Dakota and Jack by BB Dakota line when I worked at ModCloth, so I was excited to see two pieces from the brand in this box. Unfortunately for me, when I put on this jacket I looked like I belonged in an ’80s music video. (The model from Shopbop makes it look cool, but I can’t pull off the look).
BB Dakota Colleen Shift Dress – Cost to Keep $85
I love the concept of this dress – it is a fully lined chiffon material, and the cut seems like a perfect dress for summer. Unfortunately I have two issues with it: the color and the armholes.
There’s just too much fabric making the armholes too big, and the color isn’t flattering on my skin tone.
DEX New York Heather Top with Lace – Cost to Keep $39
This is a lightweight fabric top, and I love that it’s basic with the colors, but the black lace adds a little interest.
Verdict: I think Wantable did a good job at selecting items that fit in the more edgy theme I was going for, and I think this was a good mix of items as well. (Although I probably would have preferred two tops instead of two jackets). I like the brands they included in this box, and I appreciate that almost everything is new currently selling online for the full retail price Wantable is charging. (That makes the 25% discount actually feel like a true discount).
Since this is the first month of Style Edit, I still want to see a few more boxes to get a good sense of the subscription, but so far I’m pleased. What do you think of Wantable Style Edit?
