How does Wantable work?
Type of subscription: clothing
Frequency: you can choose the frequency of your reoccurring boxes (back to back, monthly, bi-monthly, or seasonally)
Amount of products received: 7, every time
Cost: $20 per box (which is credited towards any items you buy) + the cost of whatever items you decide to keep. Shipping either way is free!
Discount: purchase 5 or more items from your box and you’ll receive a 20% discount!

Sign up and create your own personal style profile at Wantable. You’ll choose between a Style, Fitness, or Men’s Edit. You can leave a note for your stylist before every box and update your requests at any time. Next, you’ll receive and try on your clothing in the comfort of your own home, styled with pieces that you already own. You can check out online, within 5 days. Make sure to leave detailed feedback about what you loved and what you didn’t like so much. Every bit of information helps your stylist grow. Finally, mail back your returns in the provided pre-paid envelope. All that’s left if to show off your new items!

A unique feature to Wantable is the Stream. On your personalized Stream you can either decline items that you dislike (ensuring that you’ll never receive them), or request items that you really like (meaning if they’re in stock they’ll try to send them to you).

I pay for this subscription.

All of my paperwork came beautifully packaged in this cute little sleeve and included a mini-sized poster.

For the purpose of this being my first review I did not use my Stream. Instead I left my stylist a very detailed notes about the items that I was looking for for my cruise in the end of February.

I was happy to see that Brian left me an actual note that wasn’t generic. This shows me that he actually read my note and cares about what I’m requesting. It’s nice to know that you matter and that your stylist isn’t just throwing together a box of items because the computer tells them they should.

Kut From The Kloth Haddie Scuba Faux Suede Moto Jacket in “Pale Blush” – $89

I love moto jackets, but even this XS seems a bit on the large side for me. I’m really digging the material. The faux suede is really soft and comfortable. And the color is to die for. The girly part of my edgy soul is melting for this pale pink with black details. To be fairrrrr though, I already own an INCREDIBLY similar jacket. Like, actually the same color and material. That coupled with it being a touch too big is why I couldn’t possibly keep it.
RETURNED.

Bishop & Young Wide Leg Jumper in “Black” – $98

At first I was really sure that I was keeping this jumpsuit. Like, right out of the box I said, “yup. Keeping this!” I put it on my body and we took some pictures and I was still super certain that I was definitely keeping this item of clothing. Then I looked back on the pictures we’d taken for this blog to reflect and thought, “oh no.” I don’t know if it’s because of the cropped pants or the wide legs. Maybe it’s the shoulders? I just really don’t feel like this jumper suits my body type. Kinda think I dodged a bullet on that one.
RETURNED.

Splendid Acro Iris Stripe Shirting in “Multi” – $108
Vigoss Jagger Destructed Skinny in “Dark Wash” – $74

I feel like maybe this is the female version of a Hawaiin shirt and that’s why my stylist sent it to me in my cruise box. I mean, that’s what I’m going to tell myself, because otherwise I have no idea. I just don’t ever see myself wearing anything like this. It’s not at all my style.
As a complete contrast, I really love these jeans! I’m a big fan of dark washes, and I’ve been really into the destructed trend lately. I did tell my stylist that so I’m sure that’s why they added these jeans into my box. The fit is great and while these might not be appropriate for a Caribbean cruise, I’m still definitely keeping them.
RETURNED and KEPT

Loveappella V-Neck Sleeveless Maxi Dress in “Navy” – $68
Pixie Mood Ashton Crossbody in “Midnight Blue” – $50

I was happy to see that my stylist sent me a maxi dress, even though I was pretty certain I wasn’t going to be keeping it. I like the color and the material, but I’m not a fan of the cross front top. For some reason whenever I see tops like this I immediately think of nursing moms. Don’t ask me why. I have no idea why my mind always goes to this, but it does. I can’t be the only one, right?
I was pretty disappointed to see how little the purse was when I actually received it. I had asked in my note for a big bag for travel, like a satchel or tote. This isn’t even remotely what I require. While it would be nice for a date night with the husband, it’s not in the budget considering there’s so much more that I need.
RETURNED x2

Liverpool Elliot Boyfriend Short in “Stockton Destruct Wash 2” – $49

Oo, I do not like the look of these shorts. Not only that, but they apparently run large. Normally I’d be gaga over these because of the destruction, but I can’t get past the color of the wash. I own some Liverpool jeans, and I know that they’re amazing, but these shorts just didn’t do it for me.
RETURNED

The verdict: 1/7
I only kept one item, but I would have been shocked if for my very first Edit ever I’d kept many more than that. It’s always hard starting fresh and getting to know a brand new stylist. This box was riddled with fit issues and just plain ole not my style issues. With that being said, I’m really excited to see what my next box brings and hope that my feedback helps!

Thanks for reading!
