Hello Gorgeous Ladies! Hope all of you had a relaxing long weekend. We spent the weekend with different groups of friends. On Sunday we went to Cannon Beach, one of our favorite beach towns, and Monday we had BBQ for lunch at our close friends home. The kids had the best time, and we ate way too much. It was such a fun time; I may need rest now more than ever though 🙂

It was such a lovely coincidence that I received my May Wantable Style Edit a couple days before the long weekend. I was able to spend enough time playing around with the pieces I received, mixing and matching them with my own accessories, and clothing items. I ended up keeping a beautiful dress I adore but came close to keeping two others I loved as well.

After the below detailed info on how Wantable works, and review highlights, make sure to check out under the photos for my thoughts on my fave pieces followed by shopping info to recreate each look.

HOW WANTABLE STYLE EDIT WORKS

  • Similar to Fitness Edit (which I initially reviewed here) Style Edit also lets you try the items picked for you before you buy. You get 5 or more 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 5 or more items you get 20% off.
  • Although Style Edit is a subscription service, you can skip a month or months anytime. Essentially, you have the option to try a single box this way.
  • Currently Style Edit is only available to 50 US States.
  • You’re only billed for what you keep, and Wantable includes a return label to make it easy and convenient.

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 really like at the moment.

WANTABLE REVIEW HIGHLIGHTS

In this Wantable Style Edit box, I received three tops, three dresses, and a pair of jeans. As I wear a lot of dresses in summer, I keep wanting to add new items to my dress collection. In the heat of summer, there is nothing I find more pretty & comfy.

 

BB Dakota Jack by BB Dakota Kindsley Dress in Fire Red, Wantable Style Edit

Jack by BB Dakota Kindsley Dress ($90)

Style Tip: This dress is super playful with its ruffles, strapless style, and happy print. I was drawn to it immediately, and decided to pair it with wedges for a casual chic summer look. I think you can as easily pair it with flat sandals such as on trend lace ups and wear the dress as a day piece. For accessories I chose a pearl wrap bracelet to add a modern but timeless touch, and chose golden earrings for a bit of sparkle.

I almost kept this dress. It screams beach vacation to me, and would also work so great as a swimsuit cover up. I also found the same dress for $80 here.  I was going to keep one amazing item, and as I do have a couple strapless options at home already I reluctantly passed on this beauty.

Jack by BB Dakota Ballard Shift Dress ($51)

Style Tip: This dress in jade green has a very easy, lightweight feel to it, and has a cross back design surprise that I admire. I paired it with my most loved Kendra Scott necklace kept from one of my Rocksbox‘s (you can get your FREE MONTH here, and try the service commitment free) lace up flats, and a tassel shoulder bag in neutral brown.

I LOVE this dress SO much!! I usually don’t go for shift dresses as I prefer fitted waists which I believe flatter my body shape more. This particular one did not feel like a tent on me, it just felt modernly loose fitting without swallowing me.

I absolutely loved the dress but needed it in a different color as I recently bought a jade green dress. I am ordering it in this red.

Dex Spring Garden Dress ($79)

Style Tip: This floral dress has a glamorous feel to it (similar print), especially when you put it on. I adore its feminine lines, and the little side ruffle wrap detail. The print is vibrant, and the length is just right. I paired the dress with the pink heels I kept from Stitch Fix, as well as this tassel clutch that also works as a shoulder bag.

Status – Kept 

This dress had everything I am looking for, and I did not have anything exactly like it. I am gladly keeping it. <3

  • Love all of the dresses. I am curious do you get to pick price points when you fill out a your style profile?

      Lindsay, I am so sorry I missed this comment. Yes Wantable Style quiz, for each section, has $ $$ or $$$ for you to choose from which lets them know the price points you feel comfortable with. I loved all the dresses they sent me in this box too. XOXO, Elif
