September Wantable box came a couple days ago. As impossible as it sounds, I didn’t even get the chance to open it between all the rush to get my little crew here ready for the new school year. Now that I have my kids officially in school (and I am sorta over being the teary eyed mom trying not to show it to her kids) I can unite with my box of sparkles.
Just to refresh your memory, Wantable is the monthly accessories sub I’ve been receiving
pretty much since they first started about two years ago. They have two options to choose
from, a monthly box for $36, or a one time box for $40 if you want to test it before you commit.
In my experience I usually receive at least twice that value. They have a very detailed style profile where you let Wantable know your preferences, and which type of accessories rock with your lifestyle. You can also specify what types of pieces you never want to receive which is quite helpful.
If you are new to theboxqueen, first of all, welcome. So happy you are here. You may want to start by checking out the previous Wantable reviews. There is so much information there about all the little details of how the subscription works, the company’s very generous ( seriously it’s so rare among subscription boxes) return policy, and how to get your best customized fit. I also included my own exact personal style quiz answers if anyone wants to duplicate.
This month, as per usual, I’ve only asked for jewelry pieces. You can also choose to receive items such as sunglasses, hair pieces, watches, and scarves. From the jewelry pieces, I chose to receive necklaces, earrings, and rings; bracelets are almost always too big on me. ( Wantable can you please find a solution to this? maybe ask for wrist inches to customize the sizes of bracelets sent? 🙂 ) September is a lovely month again. I am so afraid to jinx my luck with Wantable. The past months have been so spot on for me.
I received two rings ( well 4 considering one of them is a set of three), statement earrings, and a boho chic statement necklace this month. The above picture is the pretty ring set.
Cathryn Ring ($12)
In the ring set there is one ring with tiny pearls, one of a flower, and the last ring has three delicate leaves attached to it. They make a charming set, and can be worn individually. This is the kind of item my daughters fuss over out of the box; it’s so lovely, all flowery, and girly. I love it for all the same reasons plus it’s the type of ring that’ll get a million kinds of uses in different combination on various fingers.
Krystal Earrings ($24)
These earrings are the definite star of the box for me. They have such a vintage, antiquey feel to them. The distressed looking greenish blue color reminds me of shabby chic furniture colors. Although I haven’t decorated my house in shabby chic style ( my current style is more of modern meets Pottery Barn), I also kinda dig it. Overall Wantable made a perfect match.
McKenna Necklace ($24)
My favorite thing about this necklace is again the blue color. Now I am not that big fan of beads. I think I am getting beads once in a while as I did specify boho as a like in my style profile. The reason I am keeping boho there is because a lot of really cool, rainbow colored, big stoned, gorgeous statement necklaces are classified as boho. ( I learned this from customer service when once I asked why I wasn’t getting more of those types of statement necklaces )
One thing I LOVE about Wantable is how the pieces end up making great gifts. If there is one piece that’s not exactly my style I can usually find a family member or friend who cherishes it. ( or of course you can always try ebay/trade) There is also the option of doing a partial return on some instances. Read my February review on the details of partial returns.
Judd Ring ($18)
This last piece is right up my alley. It’s a mix of understated elegance, and a modern combination of two metals. I love two toned jewelry, they are such great multi-taskers. I love mixing metals but also sometimes like to match tones depending on my mood. Both silver & gold pieces will go wonderfully with my new ring.
Overall Impressions: I got three pieces that I adore, and one piece that I may wear or gift to a loved one. For the cost of the box at $36, I got jewelry worth $78; more than double the subscription price. I am once again very pleased with Wantable, and will continue to be a subscriber. I am also loving their return policy, and the fact that Wantable is risk free to try one of their subscription boxes.
