Happy July Ladies! I seriously can’t believe we are already almost in mid-summer. I am just getting used to a less hectic schedule, much lighter clothing, and longer days. I need summer to last much longer 🙂 Warm months, and all the fun activities it brings is one of my favorite times of the year. Receiving summer colors, and styles in my clothing subscription boxes is the cherry on top.
Today I’ll share with you my first ever Wantable Style Edit, how this personal styling service works, and of course the outfits I put together with the pieces I got. ( and my keeper 🙂 )
If you’ve been reading TheBoxQueen for a while you may know I’ve been a Wantable subscriber for a very long time- pretty much since they’ve first started the company. Wantable has accessories, make-up, fitness, and intimates boxes available you can subscribe to or try for a single box. Find all my reviews in the Wantable category here.
HOW WANTABLE STYLE EDIT WORKS
- Similar to Fitness Edit (which I reviewed here) Style Edit also lets you try the items picked for you before you buy. You get 5 pieces picked for you by your stylist based on your style profile, and you can keep them for 5 days to try with your own clothes.
- The styling fee is $20 and fully credited towards your purchases. You can keep or send back any or all of the pieces with the enclosed prepaid envelope. If you keep everything you get 25% off. (similar to Stitch Fix )
- Although Style Edit is a subscription service, you can skip a month or months anytime.
- Currently Style Edit is only available to 50 US States.
- Style Edits sell out very quickly as the service is limited. I am quite impressed with my first box; I think Style Edit is definitely worth a try.
You can fill out your style profile from the “Let’s Get Started ” section anytime and when you are done you can decide to order a Style Edit immediately or later. Filling out these style surveys is half the fun for me. They have so much detail that sometimes I even end up discovering what I like at the moment.
Let’s take a peak inside my first Wantable Style Edit box. I ended up keeping one of the five pieces. (and adore my keeper item <3) I would LOVE to hear which one is your favorite!
WHAT I RECEIVED IN MY FIRST STYLE EDIT
BB Dakota – Lily Printed Jumpsuit ($58)
This gorgeous floral printed jumpsuit literally jumped out of the box for me at first glance. It’s such an eye-catching piece, and I really liked the back detail.
Check out the pretty design on the back of the jumpsuit.
STYLE TIP: This jumpsuit would be perfect for a nigth out, a romantic date, or a celebration. As the pant style is wide legged, I paired the jumpsuit with shiny black high heel sandals. I added a two toned clutch and used the white side. I accessorized with statement earrings and a bracelet.
As you may have read in my style posts, I only try to keep pieces that I not only love but also will wear over and over in many different outfits. This jumpsuit was certainly the runner-up piece of the box for me and I seriously considered keeping it.
The pattern is beautiful, the fit is great, and the price is just right. I did buy myself a couple of jumpsuits with bold patterns in the beginning of the season tough, and thought this one would be a bit repetitive.
If you are looking for a lovely jumpsuit, I found the exact BB Dakota one on sale here.
Olive & Oak Summer Night Tank ($48)
This Olive & Oak Tank is another top with a botanical pattern over a black background. The color combo is really pretty. I think this one is a basic tank elevated.
The pink and neon yellow mixed with the subtle blues = LOVE!
STYLE TIP: I thought yellow shorts would pair nicely with the top as it has a hint of yellow in it. I added suede black flat sandals, a bird nest layered necklace, one of my favorite bracelets, and my Wantable feather ring. This top makes a casual outfit a bit more special, and dressed.
As pretty as this top was it wasn’t the statement piece I was looking for. I have many many similar tops and therefore returned it.
Kut from The Kloth- Florence Floral Kimono ($88) AND Jack Lace Hartley Short ($52)
Both the kimono and the shorts in this outfit came from my Wantable Style Edit. I was so happy to receive the kimono as I’ve been looking for just the right one for a while. The Kut from the Kloth version has a gorgeous floral print, and it’s embellished with sparkly beads on both sides. (and the quality of the embellishments is great which is not easy to find)
My Wantable stylist also included these white lace shorts.
STATUS KIMONO: KEPT
Of course I kept the kimono. 🙂 There was no way I was sending it back. I think I’ll get a lot of use out of it; it’s truly a versatile piece. You can match kimono’s with shorts, dresses, and skinny pants. The combinations are endless.
STATUS SHORTS: RETURNED
I returned the lace shorts. I do love lace however I like looser fitting styles in shorts.
Tart Collections – Amelina Dress ($132)
The Amelina dress is an almost skin-tight, well-made dress with a really nice fit, beautiful colors, and once again a unique back design.
STYLE TIP: I feel like statement dresses like this one look best with simple accessories. I just added drop earrings, and Mary Jane pumps to the outfit. As the back cut-outs are high up on the dress, I put my hair in a pony tale not to cover them. I like how effortless dresses can be. 🙂
I ended up returning this dress. Honestly I thought for the price I wouldn’t get enough use out of it. I do like the brand Tart tough, and appreciated the nice quality.
Overall Impressions: I certainly think my first Wantable Style Edit was a success. I had a great time all the way from filling out the style survey to trying out the pieces. I received high quality pieces that spoke to me, from on trend brands, and ended up keeping a fab kimono. LOVE!
