Wantable Accessories: Reveal and review – August 2016

After a month’s break from Wantable (simply because we were in the UK), I was happy to see this box of goodies arrive on my doorstep. And it seems the stylist notes are back. It’s very confusing that the last one had nothing and now I have an incredibly personalized one. While the notes may be inconsistent, the pieces they keep sending are consistently wonderful! In the note, this month’s stylist Kiley, referred to my request for pale pink jewelry and a nude clutch I made a few months back, and she delivered spectacularly!

Here’s what turned up…

Rae Necklace Silver – Retail price: $17.00 Wantable price: $6.51

LOVE! My favorite item this month by far! This is just the cutest statement necklace I now own. And for a ridiculously cheap $6.51. I honestly have no idea how they get prices this cheap for such good pieces. I love this necklace. It’s so girly and the color is perfect – champagne is the description they give it. Sublime!

 Janice Earrings Silver – Retail price: $17.00 Wantable price: $6.51 (Top row in the picture)

Another beautiful pair of studs. These earrings feature a rhinestone border with an opaque white stone. A really versatile pair.

 Raee Earrings Silver – Retail price: $14.00 Wantable price: $5.36 (Bottom row in the picture)

Now these are clearly the matching set of earrings for the necklace, so I will overlook what must be a typo in the name. Needless to say they are super cute. The pricing is again confusing – how these are only $1 less than the necklace bamboozles me (but I’m not complaining here!).

Naomi Bracelet Silver – Retail price: $19.00 Wantable price: $7.28

This is a cute cuff bracelet. I’m amazed it’s more expensive than some of the other items as I think it’s the worst quality. The cuff is adjustable which means people with skinny wrists like myself can actually wear it. However, the adjustable nature of it means I don’t think it’s going to last long as it will easily become misshapen. It’s not worth returning really so I am keeping it.

Brooklyn Wallet Tan – Retail price: $27.00 Wantable price: $10.34

My bonus 5th item! I love this little wallet which could easily double up as a clutch. If I was being picky, I’d love it to have a wrist strap just so it could transition to evening more easily. However, it’s a neutral color and I can see it getting a lot of use.

Overall impressions:

Another great box from Wantable worth a whopping $94! I’m impressed that they went back to a request I made a few months back. Everything I have been receiving has fitted my style perfectly. I think I am going to have to skip next month simply because I’m getting a bit swamped in accessories as I keep everything!

Until next time…

Wantable Accessories Collection: Reveal and review – March 2016

So those of you who have followed the blog for a while may remember that I have had two unsuccessful wantable style edits and one wantable fitness edit (slightly more successful). I’ve since cancelled those subscriptions – the style edits were nowhere near as good as Stitch Fix and I just don’t work out enough for a monthly fitness fix! However, I have always liked the company so this month I thought I would trial the accessories collection. BEST. DECISION. EVER.

So the accessories collection, like the style and fitness edits, works on a monthly subscription basis. Each month you pay $40 (or $36 if you kept everything the previous month) and receive 4-5 stylist accessories straight to your door. Just like the style and fitness edits, you complete an online profile first which allows you to specify what you love, like and dislike (you’ll only ever receive items you like or love) along with colors, styles, and sizes (e.g. necklace length). You also have the chance to leave a note for your stylist what what you would like this month (or an ongoing general note).

For my first ever collection, I requested jewellery in spring colors – coral, pale pink/rose gold, mint/turquoise, or yellow. I said I would prefer necklaces and bracelets and would love some glamorous sunglasses.

Here’s what turned up this weekend…

Emily Earrings (studs) – Retail: $26  Wantable price: $10.30

At first I thought these studs were a bit dull, until I realized the halo around them was interchangeable. Super cool! Classic style with a bit of added glamour with the halo. Love!

 Lori Drop Earrings – Retail: $22  Wantable price: $8.71

A stunning set of earrings which coincidentally is a perfect color and style match for the Nancy necklace. Loved them the minute I opened the box!

 Jenny Necklace Long Silver – Retail: $17  Wantable price: $6.73

A delicate necklace featuring a hammered metal vertical bar design. Simple but stylish. I can see me wearing this a lot to add a pretty detail to plain tops and sweaters.

Overall impressions:

I LOVE Wantable accessories! They make the Stitch Fix jewellery look seriously overpriced in comparison (I’ll be removing that from my style profile ASAP). The quality of each item was superb and amazing for the price. I love every item and will definitely be keeping this subscription going. I can’t wait to see what April brings.
