Wantable Accessories March 2015 Review and Unboxing

It's definitely not a secret that Wantable is my new obsession. I love that there is absolutely NO risk in being subscribed to this box. If you want new accessories tailored perfectly to you, pay the $40 a month and get this box! If you hate everything you receive, return it for free and get a full refund. Or just return one thing...it doesn't matter! It doesn't get any better than that! The only downfall is wanting to keep everything and not being able to afford it! Luckily if you are short on money that month you can skip the box entirely! While I've heard some mixed reviews on Wantable's other boxes, I cannot for the life of me imagine why everyone wouldn't be subscribed to the Accessories box!

I really wanted some gorgeous bohemian necklaces this month, and of course was crossing my fingers for some new sunnies. I have boxes full of sunglasses, but I always feel like I need more. It's a sickness, I'm telling you!

The Details
(feel free to skip this section if you're already familiar with Wantable!)
Wantable offers a variety of different subscriptions, each one of them costing $40 per month. There is a way to make the price lower, which I will explain later.
The boxes that Wantable currently offers are Accessories, Makeup, Intimates and Fitness. You are able to subscribe to one or all the boxes on one account if you so choose!
Wantable is much different from other subscriptions in that it's completely customizable and risk-free. You take a profile quiz to tell the stylists exactly what you want or don't want based on a "Love, Like, Don't Want" scale. They will never send you something you have marked as "don't want." If you hate necklaces, you'll never get them. If you are tired of getting red lipsticks in subscription boxes, you can simply tell wantable you never want them. Problem solved! You can take the profile quiz as many times as you want- so if one month you want to get socks and bras, but don't want any the following month, simply change your preferences! It really is that simple!

Returns
Here's what makes this a really interesting experience: You can return your entire box if you're not happy with it. Even better? You can return or keep as many or as few items as you want! Not only do you get to tell them exactly what you like and don't like, but you can return anything you're not really into- or even return the whole box for a full refund!
  You can start the return process on their website and be done in just minutes. You're able to see how much credit you will receive for the item you're returning, and then you can print out a return label free of charge. Then simply stick the item(s) in the box everything came in, tape the label to the box and leave it outside for the mailman!

$4 Credit for Keeping Everything
If you decide to keep everything in your box, Wantable will reward you with a $4 credit, which you can put toward your next box, making it only $36. This way, you're rewarded for keeping your products, however you also get credits or a refund for anything you return. You really can't go wrong!

Canceling/Skipping
There is nothing I hate more than a subscription box that doesn't have a way to cancel easily and quickly! As if Wantable couldn't get any better...they allow you to cancel your subscription with one click on their website. If you don't want to cancel, but would rather skip a month or two, they also have a "skip" button available. Awesome!

Let's Dig into my March Accessories Box!
YES! Sunnies! The first thing I pulled out of the box was these Alicia Sunglasses ($14). I love tortoise shell sunglasses, and I love them even more when they're red! The nose piece on these is really unique and looks super trendy. I'm already obsessed with these and cannot wait for the warm weather to get here so I can rock these all day!
Verdict: KEEP
The next item I pulled out was the Val Necklace in "Gold" ($23). Now I totally understand this might be hideous or totally not the style of a lot of people, but I cannot tell you how in love I am with this necklace! I love how it has an Egyptian-vibe to it, but it has all the pastel beads that make it absolutely perfect for spring. I feel like this could go with a simple t-shirt and make it look amazing!
Verdict: KEEP
I have Necklaces marked as "Love" on my profile, so I'm absolutely fine with them sending me more than one! This is the Jessie Necklace in "Gold" ($26). I like the idea of this necklace, and I understand why it was included in my box, but there's something about the beads and the gold dangly bits that I just don't like. The beads look and feel like ones that a little kid would have in a jewelry-making kit, and the gold pieces that hang down would not sit flat and just look kind of messy. Overall this necklace is just way too "busy" for my taste.
Verdict: RETURN
Finally, I received this lovely pair of Lexia Earrings in "Gold" ($14). These pretty filagree earrings fit y profile perfectly, in that they're are gold, bohemian in style, and not too over-the-top. Having said that, I jus could not decide whether or not to keep these. I usually wear my hair down, so I like earrings that sort of hang a bit lower so they're noticeable. These kind of got lost in the waves of my hair and I couldn't see them very well. They are super pretty though, I just don't think I would wear them enough to justify keeping them.
Verdict: RETURN
Overall Thoughts
I paid $40 for this box and it has a total retail value of $77.
While I am returning 2 of the 4 pieces from this collection, neither one of them were necessarily bad. I just didn't love them enough to keep them, and that is what makes Wantable so fantastic. All I had to do was stick them in the box they came in, print the label right off the website and stick it on the back. Done and done! Having said that, I am over-the-moon about the 2 pieces I am keeping! They are absolutely perfect for me, and I don't think I could have found the necklace anywhere else- it really feels like a discovery piece, and I'm super excited to have it in my collection! Overall I'm very pleased with my box this month, and I think Wantable did an excellent job with the curation and sticking to my likes and loves on my profile. I think this is one of the boxes I most look forward to each month because everyone gets something different- you really never know what is going to be inside!

  1. Wantable Accessories is my absolute favorite of the Wantable boxes. I've never had anything that I didn't love from them!

    1. I completely agree! I have seen the makeup box and I haven't thought it was worth the price, and I've gotten one of the intimates boxes and another one on on the way...still on the fence about that one, but the great thing is I can return anything I don't want- so I'm fine with testing it out for a few months before I decide. :) The Accessories box has always been hands-down the best for me. I love how spot-on they are with my style and preferences!

  2. I love the Val Necklace! So pretty. I bought one box a few months ago and I liked a few things but didn't love everything, but I didn't realize I could have returned the things I didn't like. I'll have to keep that in mind if I buy another box.

    1. Danielle, not only can you return anything you don't like, but you can skip as many months as you want- with no issues. The return process is so crazy easy too- it takes a total of maybe 2 minutes to print a pre-paid label from their site and slap it on the box everything came in, haha ;) It's definitely worth it to grab a box again sometime!
      And isn't the val Necklace gorgeous?? I'm obsessed with it!!

  3. I love Wantable so much. The customization is unreal and the return policy is spectacular. Plus they tend to run 30% off (or even 50%) specials so often that it's really worth it to sign up.
