Wantable review – August 2013

My second Wantable Accessories Box arrived much quicker than my first one. Hooray!
There are three different Wantable boxes that you can subscribe to – Accessories, Make-up or Intimates. I’m currently subscribing to the Accessories Box.

Wantable use a style quiz to determine what items to send you each month. The profile is pretty detailed 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, watches, sunglasses, skulls

The month my box only had three items in it 🙁

On the plus side I really loved two of the items.

What was in the box?

 

 

 

The products

 

Katalina Bracelet
Sample value – Wantable valued the bracelet at $24

Wantable said -‘Shining silver-tone and leatherette meet in the Karalina Bracelet. Style tip: This stretch bracelet is easy to slip on to quickly add some seriously statement to your outfit.’

This is a great statement bracelet and my favourite item in the box. It goes with lots of things and adds that touch of pizzazz to an outfit. I’ve been wearing it to work and I feel oh-so-chic 🙂

CeCe Ring
Sample value – Wantable valued the ring at $26

Wantable said – ‘This wrapped stone ring is full of whimsy. This unique piece is sure to look great with any outfit!’

This ring is growing on me. I didn’t really like it at first but I might try wear it on the weekend with a maxi skirt.

I also got a ring last month, which I wasn’t really into either. So I have updated my profile to ‘Dislike’ rings. Hopefully this way, next month’s box will be all ‘Fabulous!’ and no ‘so-so’.

Suzi Earring
Sample value – Wantable valued the earrings at $20

Wantable said – ‘Sometimes a little goes a long way, These cute studs are a staple in every fashionista’s wardrobe.’

I’m quite happy with these. I like classic earrings and I don’t have any square studs. So this one is a winner as well.

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 $47.87 Aussie dollars)

How long did it take to get to Australia?

This month it only took two weeks to get here from the US. Last month it took a whole month!!

Are these products available in Australia or through Australian suppliers?

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

Was it worth it?

The silver bracelet is awesome. I feel really stylish and I would never have brought it on my own. I’m not a very good jewellery shopper. I get all worried about ‘what’ will match ‘what I have at home’ and then I get freaked out and walk away with nothing. So this is a great way for me to get jewellery that is on trend. However on the flip side this month I got three items and one of them I didn’t like. So it wasn’t very cost effective as I really only got two items for just under $50. I’m still pretty happy with the bracelet though so I am still smiling about the purchase 🙂
