Wantable Style Edit Plus Clothing February 2018 Review
When I signed up for this service, I took a pretty lengthy quiz in which I indicated my price, size and style preferences. I would expect what I receive to be reflective of my tastes, and for these boxes to vary quite a bit from subscriber to subscriber. There is also a note from my stylist, Catherine. It explains why she chose the items she picked for me.
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 $479. If I keep everything, I get 20% off, plus I get my $20 styling fee deducted. That means a potential discount of $115.80. That’s a deep discount!
Refined Ruched Dress by Kiyonna – Cost to Keep $55 (on sale from $118!)
I love Kiyonna! More than any brand, I feel like Kiyonna really knows how to properly accentuate a curvy girl’s curves. Plus this dress is my absolute favorite color! I think the ruching pattern in the front is definitely different and interesting, and the stretch knit fabric is clinging and draping very nicely. I love it!
Ruffle Detail Blouse by Q&A – Cost to Keep $68
This is a very pretty, very sheer chiffon blouse. It would make a good transitional piece to spring, but I am afraid it’s just not my style. I really like the color and embedded dot print, though.
Center Seam Ponte Legging by Lysse – Cost to Keep $84
These are really expensive for leggings, but I think everyone should try a pair of Lysse leggings before judging. For some, it may be worth it. They have amazing compression while still being super comfortable. They are a proprietary synthetic fabric blend, but I think they’re magic! These were the only bottoms I received this month, so you can see more pictures of them in the pictures below.
Washed Cotton Pocket Tee by Z Supply – Cost to Keep $48
I get what they are going for with this cotton tee, but this is not my style at all. It has that industrial, pre-worn look that I know a lot of people do like, it’s just not for me. I also think it is too long for me.
Coated Suede Jacket by DEX – Cost to Keep $100
This jacket is awesome! I really like this style of draped faux leather jacket with the open front. It is unlined and kind of raw, to begin with, but I am loving the addition of the zipper details! It is so cool!
Hope Cinch Top by Kiyonna – Cost to Keep $56
I still love Kiyonna! I love the draping on this knit top. It adds so much style to an otherwise kind of plain black wrap top. This is so cute, and I think it looks pretty good on, too.
Hacci Cardigan by W. by Wantable – Cost to Keep $68
I generally don’t like this shape of cardigan. I feel like it draws attention to my hips and gut, which is less than ideal, honestly. I am also not in love with this color. But this is the second time ever I have heard the term “hacci”, and I didn’t know what it meant, so I looked it up. Courtesy of Girl Charlee Fabrics:
“Sweater knits, also known as Hacci, have a more loopy, open-knit texture than regular cotton knits and are usually made of blends of cotton and wool, polyester, or spandex. They are wrinkle resistant and sew up just like regular knits!”
The Verdict: I really love my Wantable Style Edit! This month I got several pieces I am seriously loving, and that’s always wonderful! I love both Kiyonna pieces, and the jacket is amazing! I feel like in terms of cost and value, Wantable sends a good mix of inexpensive and pricier pieces. I also love that they send seven pieces! It’s so fun!
