Wantable Accessories Box – April 2014

Wantable Accessories Box – April 2014

My April Wantable Accessories Box arrived this week. This month the lovely team at Wantable sent this box to me to review for free.

There are three different Wantable boxes that you can subscribe to – Accessories, Make-up or Intimates.

Wantable use a style quiz to determine what items to send you each month. My profile is set to the following:

Love – classic, glam, earrings
Like – mix ‘n match, bracelets, necklaces, scarves, hair accessories, silver tone, gold tone, multi tone
Dislike – rock ‘n’ roll, boho, rings, watches, sunglasses

First look

This month Wantable had a new box design and I liked that they put a little sticker in it with my name on it. Wantable are also now using cute little velvet pouches to store the jewellery items.

The products

Margot Necklace
Wantable values this necklace at $28USD

Wantable says – ‘The Margot Necklace is a stunning ceonfection of crystal-like beads and gold toned chains. Stype Tip: Pair with a simple buttoned shirt and stud earrings for a chic office look that’s never boring.’

I am not yet sure if I like this one or not, it’s the gold toned chains that turn me off. I will give it a run this week and see if I can be won over 😉

London Scarf
Wantable values this scarf at $22USD

Wantable says – ‘The London Scarf is a lightweight beige with a chic neon and navy print. Style Tip: Pair with a neutral top to let the neons pop!’

I am super in love with this scarf and I can’t wait to wear it to work this week. The print is gorgeous and I like that the neon is matched with more neutral colours, it makes it more wearable. This is my favourite item from this month’s box.


Traci Necklace
Wantable values this necklace at $18USD

Wantable says – The Traci Necklace features beautiful faceted gray stones accented with silver toned filigree. Style Tip: This dainty necklace is perfect for everyday wear.’

This necklace is very pretty. The silver and grey makes it very classic. It is more my style than the ‘Margot Necklace’.

Mane Squeeze Hair Ties
Wantable values these hair ties at $10USD

Wantable says – ‘The Mane Squeeze Hair Ties feature five coordinating elastic hair bands in neutral colors, making them perfect for on the go hairdo changes. Style Tip: Next time you need to run out the door with a boring ponytail, grab one of these chic hair ties to add a bit of pizzazz!’

Yay! What cute hair ties. I am happy to see these. Hair ties are one of those things I forget to restock. These are quite stylish and I like the neutral colours.

How much does it cost?

Wantable costs $36 for a monthly subscription that you can cancel at anytime or $40 for a one off box. Shipping to Australia is $10 (It has recently gone up. It used to be $9).

TOTAL COST $46 US (on today’s dollar that makes it $48.95 Aussie dollars)

How long did it take to get to Australia?

My Wantable boxes always seem to take about two weeks to get here from the US.

Are these products available in Australia or through Australian suppliers?

These products are sourced for Wantable. You could get similar products at Diva, Lovisa or Sportsgirl.

Was it worth it?

This month I loved the scarf, hair ties and Traci Necklace. I wasn’t really a fan of the Margot Necklace (which was the most expensive item in the box). However 3 out of 4 items still comes out as value for money. I really love this box because I get on-trend items sent to me each month that I didn’t have to spend time hunting for at the shops. This is a huge relief for me as I save time and can look fashionable each month with minimal effort.

Wantable Accesories Box – December 2013

Wantable Accesories Box – December 2013

Sorry guys, I thought I had already posted this review. The box came the same day I flew to Sydney to see Grease the Musical (which was totally awesome), so I must have been distracted and not hit the ‘publish’ button. Ops!

The December Wantable Accessories Box is my sixth Wantable Accessories Box.

There are three different Wantable boxes that you can subscribe to – Accessories, Make-up or Intimates.

Wantable use a style quiz to determine what items to send you each month. My profile is set to the following:

Love – classic, glam, mix ‘n’ match, earrings
Like – bracelets, necklaces, rings, headbands, scarves, silver tone, gold tone, multi tone, wood, acrylic, beads, leatherette, inspirational text
Dislike – rock ‘n’ roll, boho, urban, rings, watches, sunglasses, skulls

The products

Lavinia Necklace
Wantable values this necklace at $34 US

Wantable says -‘The Lavina Necklace has it all! Spikes, stones, and color unite in this gorgeous necklace. Style tip: Pair with a monotone outfit to add a pop of color.’

Ohhh I love this and have been getting a lot of wear out of it. I call it my ‘be tough’ necklace. I have been using it as a way to remind myself to be tough and more confident. Unfortunately sometimes I can be a bit of a doormat because I am too nice. So wearing this necklace reminds me to stand up for what I think is right.

Mirabella Earrings
Wantable values these earrings at $16 US

Wantable says – ‘The Mirabella Earrings are a gorgeous floral design of wine and mint colored stones. Style tip: Wear these beauties with a loose chignon and a matching wine colored lipstick.’

These are cute earrings. Glam but not too over the top. I’ll be wearing these with a cute dress and ballet flats.

Sarah Jane Earrings
Wantable values these earrings at $8 US

Wantable says – ‘Add some simple shine to your ensemble with these brushed gold-tone square studs. Style tip: Wear these whenever you need a little something extra to spice up your outfit!’

I’m not a fan of this kind of earring. I might see if I can tweak my profile so that I don’t receive this kind of item.

Sophia Bracelet
Wantable values this bracelet at $28 US

There was no description for this bracelet from Wantable. So I’ll have a go at writing my own 😉

Joy in the Post says – ‘Perfect for the holiday season, add some bling to your arm party with the Sophia Bracelet. Style tip: Glam up a simple dress with this sparkling beauty.’

This was another great piece for me. I wore it Christmas Day with my cute Popbasic Melodie Collection and I felt festive all day.

How much does it cost?

Wantable costs $36 for a monthly subscription that you can cancel at anytime or $40 for a one off box. Shipping to Australia is $9.

TOTAL COST $45 US (on today’s dollar that makes it $50.71 Aussie dollars)

These products are sourced for Wantable. You could get similar products at Diva or Lovisa.

Was it worth it?

Yes I loved both the Lavinia Necklace and Sophia Bracelet. I also really like the Mirabella Earrings. All three are classy and on-trend items that make me feel fashion forward and confident.

Alisha Bracelet
Wantable valued this bracelet at $22

Wantable says – “The Alisha Bracelet, featuring geometric details is a fantastic addition to your fall wardrobe. Wear this bracelet alone or pile on the bangles to make a statement.”

Hooray and it is 3 for 3. This is another great item for me. I love this style of bracelet it’s easy to wear, looks classic and doesn’t fling around when I move.

Was it worth it?

Oh yes this is a good box for me 🙂 It allows me to build my jewellery collection and look on trend each month without having to hit the shops and make choices. I am terrible when it comes to choosing jewellery, I get too scared to try anything new! So then I usually walk away with nothing at all 🙁 But with Wantable I always end up with some trendy jewellery to wear. Hooray!

Iris Necklace

Wantable valued this necklace at $34

Wantable says – “The Iris Necklace is a beautiful, vintage inspire piece featuring clusters of bubble-like stones in navy, tangerine, and nude. Style Tip: Pair with a navy blouse and peachy pink lipstick for a classic look.”

I like this necklace but I haven’t found anything to wear it with yet.

Sammy Necklace

Wantable valued this necklace at $32

Wantable says – “Add some subtle jewel tones to your look with the Sammy Necklace. Sammy features teardrop and oval stones in gorgeous  and wearable muted jewel tones. Style Tip: Pair with a neutral sweater to let the stones pop.”

This is a nice statement necklace. I wore it to work on Melbourne Cup Day for that bit of glamour. I would never have purchased this myself but now that I have it in my wardrobe I will definitely wear it.

Ellie Earrings

Wantable valued these earrings at $18

Wantable says – “Add some simple shine to your ensemble with these brushed silver-tone circle studs. Style Tip: Wear these whenever you need a little something to spice up your outfit!”

I’m not really a fan of these as they aren’t my style.

This wasn’t my favourite box but that was just because I really loved the necklaces from last month’s box. I have worn the Sammy Necklace a few times and I do like the Iris Necklace, I just need the right outfit.
