Wantable Style Edit June 2019 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. 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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!

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.
