Here is my order invoice. The merchandise total is $588 and the keep-all discount is $147, so factoring that in plus the $20 credit, this box would cost $421 to keep all five items. (Roughly $84 an item).
These are my preferences for the Style Edit subscription. I decided to go with a more edgy/rock look.
7 for all Mankind High Waisted Ankle Skinny Jeans – Cost to Keep $198
I’m having a hard time finding this exact wash on the 7 for all Mankind site, so I linked to a similar pair of jeans. High waisted + Skinny = my dream jean combination, so I was excited to try these on. (And also not-excited because I didn’t want to fall in love with a $200 pair of jeans).
The info sheet describes these as a “second skin fit,” and they definitely fit like a glove. I also have no denim in this shade, so I’m trying to convince myself that I’ll wear them enough to justify the cost!
I tend to steer clear of formal pieces, but this is the right mix of formal and relaxed for me. I really like how the blazer drapes. My only issue is the sleeves – they seem large on the wrist end. I rolled them up, and liked the look even more, so I guess it isn’t really much of an issue at all.
This is definitely a potential keeper.
Tart Collections Sapphire Top – Value $88
This is a pricey tank for me, but I was still interested in trying it on since I love the Tart brand (and the tarte brand too -Tart for maxis, and tarte for mascara!).
This tank has an inner shelf bra which isn’t enough for support, but definitely a welcome lifeline for a strapless bra!
It’s a loose waist top, but it drapes beautifully. I would definitely keep it if the price point was lower.
Tart Collections Rakel Dress – Cost to Keep $148
More Tart! This is such a cute mini dress. I like the cutouts in the skirt, but the waist of the skirt isn’t my favorite – I would have preferred it to be more fitted given the material.
Jack Brioni Dress – Cost to Keep $70
So far I’ve noticed a lot of Jack (BB Dakota) and BB Dakota in these Wantable Style Edit boxes – which is fine with me!
I really like the mod look of this dress, and the blue is a great pop for color for an otherwise black/white/grey box! The top part is a little loose on me, otherwise I would have considered keeping this one.
Verdict: I’m not crazy about the total $421 cost to keep for this box (but I guess that’s inevitable if you include $200 jeans). I am really impressed with the stylist picks for Wantable Style Edit. Everything in this box is my taste, and if wasn’t for some fit/pricing concerns, I would keep every single item.
