In case you haven’t already heard, Wantable just launched a Style Edit subscription box! It is very similar to Stitch Fix so naturally I couldn’t wait to try it out!
Not familiar with Wantable? They have several other subscription boxes in addition to their new Style Edit box. Those boxes include a make-up collection, an accessories collection, an intimates collections and a fitness edit box. I have not tried any of the others but I know people do like them.
As far as the Style Edit box goes there is a $20 monthly styling fee that is deducted from the cost of the items you keep. Like Stitch Fix you fill out a style profile and you are sent 5 items based upon your profile. The profile is a bit different than Stitch Fix as you can tell Wantable what you absolutely hate and then you will never get any items sent to you from your hate list. Unlike Stitch Fix you are not able to link your Pinterest account to your Wantable profile which I was a tad disappointed about as I think that can really help your stylist figure out what you like. But we will have to wait and see if it really does make any difference. Interested in signing up for the Wantable Style Edit box or any of their other subscription boxes?

Ready to see what I got in my first Style Edit Box? ME. TOO.
Item #1: BB Dakota Striped Ponte Dress
When I first saw this dress I thought it had a lot of potential as it looked figure flattering and you really can’t go wrong with black and white.
After trying it on, I did like it but I didn’t feel like the dress was very flattering to the upper half of my body. I think it may have been because the neckline is so high. So although the dress was boyfriend approved, I decided that I wasn’t in love with it.
Item #2: BB Dakota Ponte Shift Dress
This dress isn’t something that I would normally pick out for myself so I wasn’t too sure what to think of it. That is however, the appeal of these subscription boxes for me, so I tried it on with an open mind.
I didn’t mind the dress on me but I felt it may have been one size too big. If it had been a size smaller I may have actually considered keeping it. So it just goes to show that you should always try on everything you get in your subscription box even if you don’t think it is something you would like. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen people say they didn’t even try all the items on because they didn’t like the look of them. Why even bother getting a subscription box if you can’t keep an open mind and have fun with it??
Item #3: BB Dakota Camo Printed Shift Dress
I am sure you know by now that flowy dresses and flowy clothes in general are just not my thing. I love them on other people, just not me. So when I saw this dress I had a feeling that it wasn’t going to work for me.
By itself the dress does nothing for me. With a belt though, it does look better as it gives it some structure and once I added a blazer I actually really like it. However, for $90 I expect the dress to be awesome on its own instead of being doctored up to look good. So even though I liked the dress with the blazer and the belt, I decided to send it back.
Item #4: DEX New York Heather Top with Lace
I have to admit that although I love getting dressed up, I am a t-shirt and jeans girl at heart. So when I saw this top I was pretty excited as it is a dressier version of the basic t-shirt!
Once I put it on, I knew that it was a keeper. It looked great and felt great! What more could you want?
Item #5: French Connection Kara Stretch Top
I know Michigan takes a while to warm up in the Spring but even so I still thought this was an odd piece to get in a May box. It seems like something that would come in handy during the colder months.
Despite the top seeming like it was not right for the season, it was actually very comfy on and it felt well made. It did feel a bit big on me and perhaps a size smaller would have fit better. I also liked the top better from the front than from the back as the hi-low hem seemed like a very drastic hi-low.
So what did I think of my first Wantable Style Edit? I think it has potential. When I first started getting Stitch Fix it took a couple of months for my stylist to get it right and even now I sometimes get boxes where I only keep one thing. It’s just part of the process in my opinion. I thought what I received was almost me and that is pretty darn good for a first box.
