Wantable has been my go to subscription box for accessories since way back when they first started. If you are new to theboxqueen make sure to read all about my December and January boxes for more in-depth information.
In a quick summary Wantable personalizes an accessory box for you after a detailed personal style quiz where you tell them all your accessory preferences.( i.e. you may choose to receive jewelry, scarves, watches, headbands and like /dislike dainty or statement pieces. You can also skip any type of jewelry altogether. For instance if you dislike bracelets or rings you should never receive those) They send you a pretty box all customized for you in a very short time from my experience.
The nice thing about Wantable is that if you don’t want to get tied to a monthly subscription, for $40 you can choose to receive a one time box; or if you are a monthly lovelies in the mail kinda girl you can get a slight discount at $36. I also love that Wantable lets us return our boxes if we don’t like the contents. I exercised this return policy a couple times between their accessory and make-up subs so I can assure you they stand by it. For me it feels good to know the boxes are fully returnable in case the pieces don’t speak to me.
Here we go with my February box. This month I received two necklaces and two earrings.
Lucette Necklace (Original Price $30)
This amazing layered statement necklace with marbled light green stones and gold colored chains in between was the va-va-voom piece of the February Wantable box. Most of you ladies know by now how much I like the layered necklace look and this stunner does all the work for me with its three rows of beauty. I plan to use this piece over shirt collars (makes the classic look more feminine), dresses, all kinds of tees and blouses. The neutral green hue goes with so many other colors and the texture and style adds instant interest. LOVE
Vesta Earrings ($12)
In my daily life I wear a lot of stud earrings. For one they are practical; sometimes you even forget they are there 🙂 , they make your ears pretty and your look pulled together. I also adore and use a lot of drop earrings, but as someone who doesn’t like the over-accessorized look, studs are great if I am wearing a statement necklace and/or a bracelet but don’t want undressed ears. This Wantable version is simple and cute however I think I will twitch my quiz so that I receive more statement earrings. Between this sub, Jewelmint mystery boxes and my jewelry purchases from real time shopping sprees, I have accumulated a big collection of studs. These will be used for sure, they are just not super exciting.
Lizzie Necklace ($18)
I didn’t receive this necklace with the biggest enthusiasm I gotta tell you. My kids love my boxes and we open them together most of the time. ( Have you read how I chose my blog name) When this necklace was out of the bag my nine year old, who is an artist and so very crafty unlike me, blurted out that she could make another one of this in bright colors and we could wear them together. Well I seriously think she easily can. I did get warmed up to the necklace a bit more when I matched it with this white sleeveless tee and it livened up the plain top; still I wouldn’t buy it from a shop myself.
After seeing this necklace I e-mailed Wantable customer service hoping to swap this piece with another necklace. They were quick to reply as always but told me that they don’t do exchanges unless the product is damaged or doesn’t fit. ( I can attest to this; I’ve had a ring break once and too big bracelets and they have exchanged those with other pieces)
Update: I have corresponded with Kayla ( Wantable’s customer service lead) and she e-mailed me very detailed info on Wantable’s policies. I really appreciated how transparent the company is with this information. As a result of reading her e-mail, I learned that, as some of the dear readers commented below, Wantable does allow partial returns on some conditions. Here is what Kayla wrote regarding their partial return policies:
“If the total retail value of the items a customer wants to keep exceeds the amount they paid for the box, their partial return will not be approved for refund. If the total retail value of the items a customer wants to keep is less than the amount they paid for the box, they will receive the difference back. ”
Hope this clears up any confusion you may have had just like I did. 🙂 Learning this policy makes me even more eager to purchase from them.
Eternity Earring ($18)
Last out of the box was this silver colored infinity drop earring. I adore infinity signs and I don’t think Wantable had this sign specified anywhere in their quiz so I must just be lucky. I wear infinity sign jewelry all the time (in fact you may see them in my fashion posts soon) so this was a total win. This particular earring has a very modern shape and texture too; it will be easy to use with various styles of clothing from all my destroyed skinnies, legging/tunic looks, to even more structured outfits like pencil skirts.
Which pieces I got do you fancy the most?
Overall thoughts: I liked three products out of four in this Wantable box and completely adored two of those. The total value of the box was $78 for the $36 of the cost of the box which is a pretty good deal. I always have the option of returning the box but I don’t think I will as I’ll get a lot of use from the layered necklace and the two earrings. Overall I really love Wantable and will play around with my style quiz to see what different pieces I’ll get next time. It is so much fun to receive a mystery box full of jewelry every month.
