Wantable Accessories Subscription Box Review – January 2016
Wantable Accessories is one of several different subscription boxes offered by Wantable, including Wantable Intimates, Style Edit, Fashion Edit, and Makeup. At the beginning of the subscription, you fill out a fairly in-depth questionnaire to customize what you will receive in your box. Wantable also accepts returns on any item you don’t like, so you get a retail value as well as “your” price that you will be refunded if you return an item.
My Subscription Addicition pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Wantable Accessories
The Cost: $40 a month
The Products: Accessories and jewelry based on your profile settings.
Ships to: US, Canada (additional $6), UK (additional $7) and Australia (additional $10)
Here is the invoice of my order with retail prices and “my” prices for each item. If you keep everything, you get a $4 credit for your next box.
This shows my preferences based on the questionnaire I filled out at the beginning of the subscription. You can change your answers at any time, too. They promise to not send you anything you dislike, and to send more of what you love.
Last month I started describing a new feature with Wantable: the “stream.” This month they’ve included a little info card about it. On the stream, you can go and see what other people received in their boxes and request those items in your next box(es) if they are still available. Pretty cool!
Heather Hoops Silver – Retail $17 / My Price $7.91
I really like wearing simple hoops as long as they have a little substance to them. These are perfect!
Octavia Earrings Silver – Retail $14 / My price $6.51
These earrings are spectacular! I can see myself wearing these a lot when the weather warms up! These are an item I requested out of the stream, and I’m really glad I did.
Nora J Necklace Silver – Retail $17 / My Price $9.07
This is another item I requested from the stream. It’s super shiny and gorgeous! I’m wearing it today!
Here’s the entire necklace so you can get an idea of the length. It hangs a couple of inches below my throat.
Statement Necklace? – Retail $? / My Price $?
So, something odd happened this month. My invoice shows a lovely scarf that I requested from the stream, but in the box, this necklace showed up instead of the scarf. That’s never happened to me with any Wantable subscription before! I’m not sure what to make of it.
This necklace is beautiful, really, it’s stunning. That being said, I’m not much of a statement necklace kind of girl! I feel like I would need to be winning an Oscar to wear something like this! Maybe next year. In any case, I’m not 100% sure what I will do with this, but I just reached out to Wantable to see what can be done about it. My experience with their customer service in the past has always been very good, so I’m sure they will work with me on this.
Verdict: I’m not really sure what to say! I got three pieces that I loved and will wear. I got one beautiful necklace, but they sent the wrong item. I can’t really comment on the value because I don’t know the total value. While I can’t make a real verdict on this particular box, I will say that I love my Wantable Accessories subscription, and their value is consistently much higher than cost. I also fully expect Wantable to make their error in this situation right.
What do you think of Wantable Accessories? What did you get this month?
