Wantable Style Edit December 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, Tatjana. 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 $478. If I keep everything, I get 20% off, plus I get my $20 styling fee deducted. That means a potential discount of $115.60. That’s a deep discount!
Jacquard Elbow Sleeve Dress by Michel Studio – Cost to Keep $79
Every once in a while, Wantable sends me a repeat of an item they have sent before. They sent me this same dress in October. It’s a cute print and a nice A-line cut in a poly blend. But, I didn’t buy it then, and I don’t think I’m going to buy it now.
Long Sleeve Floral Dress by DEX – Cost to Keep $70
I absolutely LOVE the print on this poly blend floral dress! It’s exactly my kind of floral. Unfortunately, I don’t think the cut is really flattering on me. I think I will have to pass.
Jasmine Printed Top by Kut From the Kloth – Cost to Keep $68
I also love the print on this chiffon top, and I love most everything in that raspberry color. This top is a little more sheer than I like, but I could wear a cami underneath and it would look just fine. The only problem I really have with it is the tabbed sleeves… They don’t keep the sleeve in place, and the sleeves slip out and look sloppy and weird (as pictured). I’m afraid I will have to pass on this one also.
Carter Girlfriend Mid Vintage Wash by Jag Jeans – Cost to Keep $94
These jeans are awesome! They fit like a dream, too. They are soft with the perfect amount of stretch. They have a great wash, and I like the red stitching in the cuffs. These are definitely keepers!
Long Sleeve V-Neck Slub Tee by W. by Wantable – Cost to Keep $59
I don’t necessarily blame Wantable for sending me a top like this… I know lots of women like long tunics, but I have the absolute wrong shape for a long tunic. This color is not great on me, either. It’s a cotton knit, and it’s obviously super comfortable, it just isn’t for me.
Long Sleeve Floral Knit Top by Guilt Trip – Cost to Keep $58
I probably love wallpaper print more than I should, but the fact remains, I love wallpaper prints! This is a cotton knit top, and it’s the perfect length for me. The notched neckline and the lace trim are also really cool details. The color scheme is awesome! I love it!
Long Sleeve Wrap Top with Mesh Yoke by DEX – Cost to Keep $50
Redemption! It’s the same print as the floral dress above but in blouse form! I LOVE it! It’s the same poly blend fabric, but with a mesh yoke across the back. I think the cut and fit are both great for my shape, and I simply can’t get over that print! Score!
The Verdict: I really usually love my Wantable Style Edit! This month was a mixture of hits and misses, which is to be expected, but I love the DEX blouse and the jeans so much. 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!

The cost of each item is listed alongside it above, but if I choose to keep at least 5 items, I get a 20% discount.
