Wantable review July 2013

Hooray! After what felt like a really really long time my Wantable Accessories Box for July arrived and I loved it.

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 box was smaller than expected. However when I opened the box it was pretty roomy.

The products

Dilita Earrings
Sample value – Wantable valued these at $18

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

I love these. They are classic and glam. Tick Wantable.

Rosalie Necklace
Sample value – Wantable valued this set at $24

 Wantable said -‘Here is one of stylist Lara Eurdolian’s favourites! Wear this statement necklace with a strappy dress for maximum style.’

I would never have purchased this as I would have been too worried about what I would wear with it. However I wore this the very next day with a cute little black dress and some blue heels. It made me feel very stylish and trendy.

Sabina Ring
Sample value – Wantable valued this ring at $24

Wantable said – ‘This stacked glam ring is perfect for day or night! Go ahead, match your polish to the sapphire colored stone!’

This is the one item that I didn’t love. It doesn’t quite fit, which is my fault as I put the ring size as 5. So it is a tad too big. Also style wise it isn’t really me 🙁

Buchannan Earrings
Sample value – Wantable valued these cute Gatsby inspired earrings at $20

Wantable said – ‘Vintage styling is so fashionable right now. These earrings could be straight off the set of Gatsby. Make sure to wear your hair up so everyone can see your fantastic new studs!’

Again I would never buy these as I’d be too scared about whether I could pull them off but they are really fabulous on. Totally glam and on trend with the Gatsby look that I keep seeing everywhere. So I will be wearing these too!

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 $50.43 Aussie dollars)

How long did it take to get to Australia?

It took a whole month to get here but apparently there was some kind of shipping delay with Australia Post. So hopefully next time it gets here quicker.

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?

When I got the box I was scared to open it, in case I didn’t like the items. But I was really happy with what I got. The blue Rosalie earrings and necklace set I wore the next day to work and then the following day I wore the cute Dilita Earrings.

At Diva a similar set of items would cost :
Dilita earrings $9.95
Rosalie statement necklace $19.95 – $29.95
Rosalie earrings $9.95
Buchannan earrings $12.95
Sabina Ring $9.95
TOTAL $62.75 – $72.75

So the box works out $10 – $20 cheaper than buying products at Diva.

I have a confession though, this works really well for me because I get purchase anxiety when buying accessories. I have a lot of trouble making a decision and can spend ages wandering around the store without buying anything. So to have stuff set to me based on my preferences is really awesome. I’m hoping that next month is just as good for me 🙂
