Do you remember this statement necklace that I wore to Fashion week? It's vibrant, eye-catching and a definite conversation starter. When people asked me where I got it from, I said....Wantable!
What is Wantable?
Wantable is a beauty, accessories and intimates subscription box. For $36 a month, you get a box filled with full-size products personalized to fit your style. It's a fun way to receive a mix of new items every month - and if you're ever not happy with your box, you can send it back for a full refund! Before placing an order, users select a category (makeup products, boutique accessories or essential intimates) and fill in a fun quiz, to ensure that the products they receive will suit their personal style. Wantable ships to the US, UK, Canada & Australia.
I was recently contacted by Wantable and asked if I would be interested in trying
out one of their boxes. After checking out the amazing boxes in the
#wantable instagram feed, I immediately said yes! And with my love of
scarves and necklaces - it's no surprise that I opted for the
Inside my Wantable Box:
In my profile quiz, I got to choose what I Loved, Liked and Disliked. Wantable says "You're most likely to receive products you Love and will never receive products you Dislike." My Loves were: Classic, Glam, Necklaces, Watches, Scarves & Multi Tone. My Dislikes were: Rock 'n Roll, Bracelets & Hair Accessories.
I think Wantable did an amazing job catering to my preferences. My box contained the Iris Necklace (retail value $36), Rose Romance Earrings (retail value $24) and Sonya Scarf (retail value $32). In terms of quality, the jewelry is very well-made - definitely more attention to detail and better materials than the jewelry at Forever21 and H&M (where I usually buy my statement necklaces). They even come with their own velvet pouches for safe storage! To be honest, I'm not completely sure if the Sonya scarf is worth $32 - while it is super-soft and finely woven, I've seen similar scarves sold for $20 at the mall. However, even if we lower the price of the scarf, the retail value of the box still significantly exceeds the $36 subscription fee.
What I Love About Wantable:
I loved how the box was a mix of items that I would pick out for myself (the earrings and scarf) and pieces that suit me but take me slightly out of my comfort zone. I'm not sure I would have bought the Iris necklace myself - while I love the jeweled medallion and brushed gold chain as individual pieces, I find the combination a bit intimidating and bold. Yet it really was the perfect piece to round out my Fashion Week outfit - I think it's partially responsible for me being picked to participate in the FLARE Street Style video! And I think this element of surprise is what makes hand-picked boxes fun - the opportunity to try pieces that suit you, yet also push your boundaries.
