Wantable offers three types of subscriptions: Accessories, Make Up and Intimates. All boxes are priced at $36.00 for a subscription or $40.00 for a one-time purchase, both choices offer free shipping.
If you don’t like the box you received, Wantable allows you to return it. Being able to return your box is an added benefit that most subscription companies don’t offer. Additionally, should you desire to skip a month or cancel Wantable provides the option to do so.
Wantable offers the opportunity to complete a style profile for each type of box. The style profile works this way – you are shown a picture of an item and rate it on a sliding scale ranging from love it to dislike it. Based on your ratings, Wantable is able to send items you truly desire and you are not left receiving something which does not match your taste or style. I assume this also keeps their returns to a minimum.
When opening April’s box, I was greeted by an array of colors: yellow, purple, orange and blue. The Ella Scarf, is lovely, lightweight with a bold and bright chevron print. Has a bit of a Boho feel to it, would work great as an accessory at any Summer concert. As much as I love infinity scarves – and I do – (if you read my first Wantable post) I will have to tweak my settings so I am not receiving a scarf every single month. ($22.00)
I am dreading writing the rest of this review- I want to love everything all the time, but sometimes I just can’t. Unfortunately, this was not the best Wantable Accessories box for me. I pulled out the two black felt bags and couldn’t wait to see what was inside. I loved March’s box so much that I thought this one will be awesome.
Out of the first bag came a chunky, white, geometric stretch bracelet with a gold tone backing called The Brita Bracelet. It has an incredibly cheap plastic-like feel to it. Although, it is comfortable on the wrist and the bracelet is cute the quality could have been better. Had it been more substantially constructed, I would love the bracelet; however, it just feels as though it could break easily. In all honesty, it would look cute with a dress or shorts and a cute print top but I just feel as though it could snap and break off my wrist especially if my son was grabbing at it. Wantable valued this bracelet at $17.00 which in my personal opinion is way over the top. I wouldn’t have paid more than $7.00 for this bracelet.
In the second bag was another bracelet. The Miranda Bracelet is a wrap-style made of taupe, tan, cream and iridescent crystal beading. This bracelet has a nice fit on the wrist and the beads do sparkle in the light. On the negative side, I feel as though the beads look cheap and the wrap-style has a “pre-teen” look to it. Similar to the first bracelet, I felt this one was over valued at $16.00- I would think more around the $8.00 range.
Also in the second felt bag was an Adriana Ring. The ring is a silver-tone with accented rhinestones, intersecting loop design and light in weight. I do like the design of this ring, it is listed as a size 7 but it is too small for my size 6 finger. Wantable missed the mark on pricing this one too. It’s retail value is 12.00- I never would have paid more than $5.00 for this ring.
After I received my March’s accessories box I changed my settings in hopes of receiving different jewelry- maybe a pair of earrings or a necklace. Instead, I received the scarf, two bracelets and a ring.
The value of the box retailed for $67.00- If you have never received a Wantable box don’t dismiss them because of this review. I really loved my March box and with subscription boxes you have to understand that these have a “surprise element” and sometimes they miss the mark. Just remember, Wantable, unlike other subscription boxes will allow you to return your box if you are not happy. That is a huge plus in my book.
Sadly for me, I will be returning this box for my refund and will update with the process. I have not given up on Wantable – I will be ordering another box in the near future. Unfortunately, with this box, I feel they just missed the mark.
