I was thrilled to get the chance to try them out! Wantable Style Edit is one of several different subscription boxes offered by Wantable, including Wantable Intimates, Accessories, Fitness, and Makeup.

When I signed up for this service, I took a pretty lengthy quiz in which I indicated my price, size and style preferences. Wantable uses a great model of indicating what you love, what you like and what you dislike, for all their subscriptions! They send you more of what you love, and never what you dislike. I can go back and change my preferences at any time.

Below my preferences is a note from my stylist, Kate. It explains why she chose the items she picked for me. This month, you can see some of the input I gave her just above her note. This is the first time I have seen my own request on this sheet!

This is the invoice of the items they sent me this month. On the right, it shows my cost to keep each item. The total comes to $504.50. If I keep everything, I get 20% off, plus I get my $20 styling fee deducted. That brings the total down to $383.60 for a discount of $120.90. That’s a deep discount!

Striped Swing Top by Oddi – Cost to Keep $48

I really thought I would love this top, but I don’t like it on me that much. It is a super soft cotton knit, and I like the colors, but I don’t like the fit. I think the cut is a bit fattening on me.

Skinny Curvy Flat Black Jeans by James Jeans – Cost to Keep $200

I think these jeans look pretty good on me, and black jeans are always flattering, but yowza. Two hundred dollars. James Jeans always look good, but they’re so spendy! Is the “super flex technology” worth it?

Duofold Plaid Pink Flannel Top by Lucky – Cost to Keep $79.50

I love flannel shirts so much. They are so cozy and comfortable! And I love the colors in this one especially.

This top also has these super stylish buttons along the side seams. For a flannel shirt, this one is also oddly flattering. Is it worth the price tag, though?

Hi Low Basic Tee by Dex – Cost to Keep $29

This is a basic cotton blend knit tee. The color and cut are super flattering. I don’t see how I could go wrong with this.

Rolled Cuff Denim Jeans by Vigoss – Cost to Keep $60 (on sale from $84!)

These jeans are super cute, and they have a great shape! They have a little less stretch to them than I usually like, but they’re a good length for me. Plus they’re ON SALE.

Printed Kimono by Emerald Fashion – Cost to Keep $49

I am so happy that kimonos of this type have come into fashion over the past couple of years – they are so flattering! This is a very pretty, lightweight, semi-sheer chiffon. I just don’t like the print. I think it reminds me of a Hawaiian shirt.

Burgundy Shift Dress by Janette – Cost to Keep $39

When I first saw this knit cotton mini dress, I just thought, there’s no way. But I actually really like it on me. Plus, check this out:

It has an awesome keyhole in the back! I love stylish details like this. It makes me want to get an up-do.

Verdict: I am really loving my Wantable Style Edit! I am so happy they sent seven items again this month! Wantable Style is fast becoming one of my favorite boxes all month. This month I think I have found four MUST KEEP pieces! I love the mix of items Wantable always sends – at least a couple of things I know I will love, plus several that I just don’t know until I try them on. It’s so fun!

What do you think of Wantable Style Edit? What did you receive in your box this month?

  1. You have $39 for a pretty dress, then you have $200 for pants and $60 for jeans will holes and tears in them. Just can’t wrap my head around it.

  2. That dress looks great on you! Love the color/print. And the cutoff jeans are cuute!

    • Thanks Carolina!

  3. I never comment on this but I just had to today! Love the red dress and the distressed jeans, but I feel like you could pull any of the pieces off. Just depends on what you like and your comfort level. But that red dress is a KEEPER!

    • Wow, thanks Britt!!

  4. But if you take the total ($383.60) and divide it by the number of items (7) it averages at $54.80 per item. That makes it more worth it to keep everything and then swap/sell the items you don’t like. Just a thought.

    • I like the way you think, Beth!

    • But, if you have time, you can find better deals at a good thrift shop. Most of the Wantable prices are still too high.

      • That’s true about any fashion sub. The point of them is largely curation and convenience.

  5. I really like the burgundy dress. The other pieces are just not flattering on you at all. I think you could definitely find much better more flattering pieces and probably for less money too! It’s the shapeless frumpy clothes these clothing subs keep sending you not you!

    • Thanks Karen!

  6. Anna,

    I love so many of these outfits on you! I love the first blue top, pair that with some leggings and it’s super flattering! I also love love love that dress on you, you look amazing. Plus those distressed jeans are so fun and they look great on you!

    I love that you post pictures of you wearing the outfits. It gives me ideas for new ways to pair clothes just by looking at you trying on these clothes.

    • Thank you so much, Marleen! That means so much to me!

  7. I love love love the flannel on you but these clothes are so overpriced unless you live in the middle of nowhere, don’t have a computer and have more money than you can spend.

    • Lol thanks Michelle!

  8. I know you do a lot of the clothing subscriptions. Which do you feel is the one with the lowest price point? I just couldn’t justify spending over $300 a month on clothes just for me, but I love the idea of it all!

    • I’m also curious as to the one with the lowest price point…

      • Nadine West has the most inexpensive clothing items, but it’s only 1-2 items and some accessories. Dia & Co. has the least expensive pieces, I believe. I’ve never gone through and done like an average price per piece, tho. That would be interesting!

  9. Anna,
    You are too cute to wear a dowdy flannel shirt. I actually thought the first top looked good on you and not fattening at all. I do like the flowered dress and the black top is a good fit, too. I am going to check out this sub for myself. It may be better than Stitch Fix, style-wise.

    • It’s not for a dressy occasion, but I thought the flannel was adorable on her! 🙂

      • Thanks Jen!

    • Lol, thanks Amy!

  10. My favorite is the flannel. I know that they’re so expensive, I tried the fitness one time, but I love that! I also love the distressed jeans. Those two are my favorite pieces.

    • Thanks Valene!

  11. Love the dress. It is a great color and style for you. The flannel is cute but YOW! the price! Flannel season is nearly over. it should be marked down as well. The kimono is cute. I tend to wear all solids, but every once in a while I choose a bold print and really like it.

    I couldn’t wear distressed jeans like that. I would be picking at the threads and they would just be big holes. As for the other items, maybe it is the angle of the photos, but they don’t enhance your curves. Especially the blue top photo since you look like you have no legs.

    Love both those shoes and that lipstick is a great shade on you.

    • Thank you Kim! and thanks for noticing!

  12. I like the print on the kimono, but much of my wardrobe is large floral prints. I probably look like upholstery from 40 years ago most days.

    Trunk Club tried to send me $300 Vince Camuto pants this month. I told them to not bother. I could get like 8 or 10 pairs of Dockers for $300. Anyway, yeah, $200 for jeans is a bit much.

    • I feel you. 👉🏽👉🏽
