Wantable Style Edit June 2019 Review

Wantable Style Edit June 2019 - Information Card Opened Top

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. 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 $465. If I keep everything, I get 20% off, plus I get my $20 styling fee deducted. That means a potential discount of $113. That’s a deep discount!

Wantable Style Edit June 2019 - Celia Dress Model Wearing Front

Celia Dress in Watercolor Floral by Lemon Tart Cost to Keep $78

This is a really nice cotton blend knit dress. It’s really soft, and I actually really like the detail at the waist! I am not a fan of sleeveless garments on myself, but I could easily wear a kimono or a shrug with this dress, and it would look great. There is one odd thing about it, though:

The pockets are backwards! I mean, they are actually sewn in facing backward. The front and back of the dress are similar, but I checked like three different times to make sure I wasn’t just wearing it backwards, and no. The pockets are sewn in backwards. That kind of defeats the awesomeness of having pockets!

Wantable Style Edit June 2019 - Hacci Elbow Sleeve Top In Black Wearing Model Front

Hacci Elbow Sleeve Top in Black from W. By Wantable Cost to Keep $59

This cotton blend hacci knit top is awesome, but I don’t think I have the right shape for it. Dolman sleeves with a stretch bottom hem/waist I think is a really beautiful look for women who have strong shoulders and a smaller stomach. Unfortunately, that’s not me.

Wantable Style Edit June 2019 - Grommett Pull On Ponte Pant in Charcoal Plaid Wearing Front

Grommett Pull On Ponte Pant in Charcoal Plaid by Curve Appeal  Cost to Keep $68

These pants are very cool, but this whole outfit is very fall/winter to me. This is not what I would expect to see in a June box. Having said that, the color and plaid are very cute! They are a good length, and they have the perfect amount of stretch. I am not in love with the faux pockets (I would much rather have real pockets!), but the grommets are super stylish. I am actually on the fence about keeping these.

 Wantable Style Edit June 2019 - Airy Slub V-Neck Tee In Green Model Wearing Front

Airy Slub V-Neck Tee in Capulet Olive by Z Supply Cost to Keep $45

I regularly receive tees from Z Supply in my Wantable Style box, and they are growing on me, to be honest. They are usually extremely pre-worn, by design, as a fashion choice, but not always. This tee has a really pretty color and a texture that makes it more interesting than your average cotton tee. It’s a little long, but I think I like it anyway. On the other hand, $45 is a lot for a tee.

Wantable Style Edit June 2019 - Carter Girlfriend Jeans Closer Front

Carter Girlfriend Jeans in Night Breeze Wash by Jag Jeans Cost to Keep $94

These jeans are awesome! The dark wash is really flattering, and the cuff is sewn in. The red thread on the cuff is a subtle but very stylish detail. They are really comfortable and have the perfect amount of stretch. Keepers!

Gayle Top in Ocean Club by Beach Lunch Lounge Cost to Keep $69

I am going to totally give away my age here, but when I was very little, my family used to watch “Hee-Haw!” on television. The women on the show used to wear tops like this, off the shoulder with ruffles and flutter sleeves, and so I just can’t get into it. I know, it’s 40 years later and I should get over it, but I can’t. This screams COUNTRY to me, and that’s not my style at all. Having said that, it’s a pretty color and print, and it has a cotton broadcloth feel with a bit of texture to it. It’s a perfectly cute and stylish top, and the shoulders can be worn up or down. It’s a little big and blousy on me, but the bottom line is that it’s just not for me!

Wantable Style Edit June 2019 - V Neck Tee Print Top FrontWantable Style Edit June 2019 - V Neck Tee Print Closer Front

Leopard V Neck Tee in Natural Leopard by Z Supply Cost to Keep $52

And because of my age (I think), I just don’t do animal prints. Animal prints seem to be really popular with quite young women and women who are about 8 years older than me, and if one was to err on which age group I fall into… Anyway, check back with me in about 8 years, haha! I actually have it on my “NEVER SEND” list with Wantable, so I am a little disappointed that they sent an animal print despite this fact. The tee shirt itself is great. It has a hacci knit also and is another one by Z Supply. The print is quite faded, which to me does make it a little more interesting. But again, no matter what the print is, $52 is a little much for a tee shirt.

The Verdict: I really like Wantable Style Edit, but this box feels like it had more misses than usual. Those dress pockets were so weird! I am also disappointed that they sent something on my list of things to never send. I always thought their “Love-Like-Dislike” system was a good one, but it is not if they don’t abide by it. On the other hand, I love those jeans, and I will probably keep and get a lot of use out of the green tee. Here’s hoping next month is better!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Wantable curates its boxes based on each individual’s preferences as well as what’s available. What you get might not be the same as what I got, but you also might get something that fits your style and body even better than the looks above! Sign up and see what they choose for you!

Value Breakdown: This box cost $20.00 with free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside was $465. 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. The $20.00 cost of the box would also be applied to the purchase, meaning I’d end up spending $352 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s a savings of about 24%. The average price per piece is $66.43.

  1. Is the $119 in credits due to credits you get when we click on the referral links in your reviews?

  2. I love Jag jeans they are SO comfortable, they can be found at a lot of stores for much cheaper. I would ask for a replacement for the dress,I am sure the pockets have to be a mistake. And I know you hate that leopard shirt and they should not have sent it , but it really does look nice on you!

  3. This box is truly ‘meh’ to me. That first dress is fantastic and I would ask them to send a replacement – no way is it supposed to have backwards pockets (unless it was picked up as a second).

    Please just say no to the plaid pants. Plaids can be tricky in pants unless they’re really well cut and have the ability to hang rather than cling. Clingy plaid, especially in a knit like Ponte, highlights that the lines aren’t straight. You can do soooo much better!

    Had to laugh at the Hee Haw reference – my family never (as in ever!) watched it but I get the reference and now can’t unsee it with that top!

    Love the jeans but have to wonder just how many pairs of jeans you own at this point, Anna! 😉

  4. I love love love the carter girlfriend jeans, too! I received a pair in my trial Wantable box and
    couldn’t justify the price but later found a pair on poshmark or eBay or somewhere. I am also plus sized but 5’10” and they fit my like capris. 🤪

  5. These clothing subs are too expensive for such very basic plain pieces. The plus size section at Walmart and Target has very similar stuff for much cheaper.

    • I agree, but it really depends on the quality. I bought a summer open weave sweater in Dress Barn (now Roz & Ali) for 45 bucks a few years ago and my mom was scandalized. I still wear that sweater at least once a week in the Summer and get compliments EVERY TIME.

      I do buy most of my clothes in Walmart, but they die faster. The pant seams get worn out, and the tops get pilly and scratchy. I’m at the point where I think I’m willing to spend more to get more than a month or two out of something I’m going to wear a lot.

      • You mention quality but the dress has pockets sewn on backwards lol so yeah I don’t think the quality is there.

    • I don’t buy any clothes at Walmart and Target. Macy’s is about as mainstream as I’ll go for clothing. However, I tend to agree that these items are over-priced for what they are. I can do better on my own – the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is on (I haven’t ordered anything) as well as a sample sale at Universal Standard (ordered 2 tops and a pair of jeans for $130, GREAT DEAL!). I’ve done Stitch Fix a few times and it’s been okay in terms of quality and style, but again, I can do better on my own. None of this stuff is bad, but I wouldn’t pay these prices for any of it. The HeeHaw top for $70? Honestly, it looks like something one would be able to pick up on clearance at Walmart for $12. So, no.

  6. You should have them send a replacement for the dress as it is super cute on you!
