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).

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?

The part of the quiz where they ask what style you like – boho, classic, etc. – shows more or less what they have each month. So I just go and look to see if I like what they have and order or skip based on that.

A couple of months ago I was also sent the wrong item — what I received did not match what was pictured. Customer service was great. Since the item pictured was still available they immediately sent it to me. I was very happy because I knew I would use the scarf more than the item that was originally sent.

I think you should keep the statement necklace, even if it’s not you now. It’s gorgeous and you can use it as an excuse to get a blue dress and then go out on a fancy dinner out with your husband.

That necklace would be amazing with a royal blue dress.

Anna! I think something similar happened to me in my makeup subscription last month… I totally forgot until you mentioned it! I wonder if there’s something weird with actually getting items from the stream in their system or something.

I joined Wantable Accessories last month and received my first box. I was so disappointed. My loves and likes were not paid attention to at all. I received 4 jewelry pieces, was at least hoping for a scarf. I ended up keeping a pair of earrings and sending the rest back. I hope the Feb box is better or I will stop ordering. I had subscribed to Wantable Makeup a few years ago and loved everything I got, so thought their Accessory line would be as good. Disappointed.

There are several scarves in the Wantable stream right now. You should check them out & request one if that’s what you want.

I’ve never tried the Wantable accessories box before but I’m tempted to now! I love the idea of the Stream and I totally love that necklace you accidentally got. Really lovely!
