Wantable Accessories Subscription Box Review – Feb 2014 Box

Wantable Accessories is one of the three Wantable subscription options. Each month they typically send you three items in categories like jewelry, scarves, sunglasses, etc. You can heavily customize this box by picking out which categories of items you want, and what styles and materials you prefer.

Wantable Accessories Subscription Box Review – Feb 2014 Info

For reference, this is my list of items I love, like and dislike. (They will never send you any item you dislike).

I play around with my settings pretty much every month, and this month I learned that you can’t select only one category. (I was really hoping to get nothing but scarves!)

Accessory Street Flora Rosa Scarf – Value $40

This is definitely my favorite item in the box. It’s super soft, and I love the watercolor look it has. Now I just need it to be Spring!

Lola Sunglasses – Value $22

Since I couldn’t pick just scarves, I went with sunglasses as my other category option this month. Unfortunately for this pair, I can’t pull off this look. (These sunglasses are probably going to the swap section soon!)

Greta Sunglasses – Value $22

These shades are definitely more my style, and I love tortoise shell, so I’m happy with this selection!

Verdict: The scarf and the greta sunglasses are wins for me, so I’m happy with the value of my accessories box this month. I’ll probably keep messing around with my profile settings though and I may try jewelry again for next month. (In general I think I’m the hardest to please with this Wantable subscription since accessories can be so taste-specific).

Do you subscribe to the Wantable Accessories box? Which item categories have you been pleased with?

  1. Rather than spending $36/month x 12 months = $432 + taxes over a year… I’d rather take that money buy myself one really nice pair of sunglasses then take good care of them and a handful pretty scarves in colours I pick out for myself – than have a larger accumulation of items from Wantable subscription boxes that I may not love taking up space in my home.

  2. Unfortunately, my experience with Wantable accessories was terrible. All three of my items arrived damaged, but when I contacted them about a return they told me that for next month I should “update my preferences”. I reached out to them over and over again through e-mail, Twitter and Facebook and got zero response. It wasn’t until I looked up their CEO’s (telephone) contact information and e-mailed them my plans to contact him personally by e-mail and telephone that I got a response, and even then it was only an offer of a refund. They never, ever once offered to replace the damaged items, or exchange them for any other items. I would honestly not dream of giving this company my money again, in any subscription box, and I would seriously question the merit of continuing to support a company with such little regard for their customers’ satisfaction.

  3. I just got my wantable accessories box today. My 12-year-old daughter and I have had a lot of fun with this one. The quality of the pieces is indeed cheap but I feel like they are definitely worth $10-$15 a piece. I love your scarf and hoped to get it. However, I got a great statement necklace, beautiful art deco looking rhinestone bracelet, turquoise earrings that are totally me and a clear stone ring that was just okay but fits nicely.

    I find that my items tend to be a bit repetitive. At some point, I’ll decide I have enough statement necklaces and stop. I was getting really cheap sunglasses each month but was able to change my profile and end it. It is totally fun to get a box each month and since the pieces are cheap, I don’t mind if my daughter wants to wear them. The service also gets me out of my style comfort zone.

  4. I LOVE the Lola sunglasses!! I NEED them in my life. I’m about to start stalking your swap page lol

  5. Oh, I love that scarf! I don’t think I’d pay $40 for it though!

  6. That scarf is beautiful! I really wanted the Wantable accessories box to be my favorite subscription box ever, but after two months of subscribing I just couldn’t justify it. I felt like the quality of the jewelry pieces I received was really poor. 🙁 My preference is to have fewer high quality pieces over a larger number of lower quality pieces. I am still hunting for a similar box that offers a nice mix of jewelry and other accessories (e.g., scarves). Maybe something a la Golden Tote that allows you to pick one of your pieces each month? Someone needs to get on creating that! 🙂

  7. Sunglasses?? Scarves? and I saw Watches???
    Why don’t I already subscribe to this box?
    I love my Wantable Intimates, will have to try this on out too! I think I’m finally convinced!! 🙂
