Wantable is one of my favorite accessory subscription boxes. If you are new to theboxqueen, you may want to start by reading my previous Wantable reviews, from February, January, December, to see more of the pieces I received, and in-depth information.
In a quick summary, Wantable is an accessory subscription box that can be a one time purchase for $40. For girls like me, who need regular pretty surprises in the mail though, the monthly sub works great with a discounted price tag of $36. Wantable customizes 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) I choose to receive just jewelry for myself and usually go for necklaces, rings, and earrings.
Wantable’s generous return policy also attracts me to this sub. The company lets us return our boxes for a full refund in case we aren’t completely pleased with what we received. This is super important for me, as like many of you, I don’t like to be stuck with jewelry I won’t want to use. This return policy also really rocks as returning for a refund is pretty rare among subscription boxes. I have exercised Wantable’s return option a couple times, returning boxes I was not 100% happy with, and can attest to the fact that I received full refunds. Tweaking your answers in their personal style quiz helps a ton with receiving pieces that appeal to your taste.
Now let’s move on to what you’ve been waiting to see; the lovelies from my April box. I received four pieces this month from Wantable, one necklace, two earrings, and a ring. The name and original price of each piece is listed under the corresponding picture, along with my thoughts on each item.
Jackie Ring ( Original price $15) Jackie Ring is actually a set of three rings. There is a thin sparkly band, a caged ring, and another one that resembles an ivy. I was absolutely delighted to receive this set of rings. If you have been reading my style posts, I am very into layering jewelry; be it layered necklaces, an arm party and in this case rings. ( you can see an example of layered necklaces in one of my recent styling posts)
These rings are so versatile, and can be used all together, individually, or two on one finger one on the next. I am also always intrigued with multi-tasking any type of fashion piece I have. ( a triple threat style post here where I style the same piece three ways) These rings definitely have the potential to be multitasking accessories.
Evie Earrings (Original price $15 ) These Wantable earrings are good sized hoops with white and gold beads in the middle. Hoops are classics, never out style pieces, and this version is pretty and modern with the twist of some texture. I know I’ll use these earrings frequently, and with many outfits; casual or glam.
Makayla Earrings $15 When I first saw the Makayla earrings I thought they looked very natural. I think they are a summery piece that would match great with boho chic looks, maxi skirts, and long dresses. I imagine myself wearing these having a messy side fishtail braid, a sun kissed make-up, and pinkish lip color. In fact I should probably use them in one of my summer styling posts, and realize& share my vision with you gals. <3 Summer dreaming inspired by a piece of jewelry. 🙂
Isabella Necklace (Original price $29) I saved the best for last for sure with the Isabella necklace. Remember what I shared with you above, under my new rings. I LOVE layering, with capital letters 🙂 and I got a already layered necklace with charming bows, sparkles, colored beads, multi toned metals, all that jazz! Wantable got this one so right!
Since I got my box last week, I have used this necklace multiple times. Check out this Instagram picture of how I styled Isabella with a bow tie shirt. For such an ambitiously fab necklace, it surprisingly adapts effortlessly to so many tee’s, knits, and blouses. My new favorite!
Update: Jen asked me in comments what my quiz preferences were; and I wanted to add them here if anyone else was wondering.
Styles: Classic & Mix ‘n Match (mid-point like) Glam and Boho (love) Rock n Roll (Dislike)
Want: Earrings, Necklaces, Rings
Don’t want: Bracelets (always too big) and all the other accessories
Gold and Multi Tone (love) Silver (mid-point like)
Earrings: Drops and Hoops (love) Studs (dislike- have way too many)
Necklace: Statement (love) Everyday (dislike) Both long and short necklaces (love)
Rings: Everyday and statement both (love) Sized (love) Adjustable (mid-point like)
Overall thoughts: The April Wantable box is an all around win for me. There is no piece I dislike, and two pieces I absolutely adore. ( rings and the necklace) The total value of the box is $74, great deal compared to the $36 I paid. I can’t wait for my next Wantable accessory box.
