Today I will be reviewing my Wantable Accessories collection for September.
If you are new to Wantable it is a subscription box company with many different box options. Beauty, accessories, intimates and two style Edits featuring fitness and fashion as well. I subscribe to their accessories collection and will be reviewing my September box!
Wantable is great b/c it is truly tailored to your likes/needs and they do an excellent job of curating the perfect items for each individual based on their personal likes and dislikes. Plus, if they get it wrong, you can return.
Heres how it works:
1. Answer some quick survey questions so Wantable can match you with your perfect pieces.
2. Receive 4 accessory pieces picked for you by your Wantable in-house stylist each month.
This year; Wantable released their own stream; It’s a bit like Instagram for Wantable only with more options! This feed is a great way to browse products that others are receiving from the various Wantable Collections and Edits. You can create a quick profile and add photos of your own while easily tagging each product. There is a stream catered to what Wantable thinks you may like as well as a trending stream. The feed also has a ‘my closet’ tab and it includes every product you have received from Wantable. The best part of this feed [for me] is that you may now request a specific item with just one click. Love this! These products will then be moved to your wish list tab as reference for your stylist! This Stream is really easy to use! wantable.com/stream
I have had nothing but excellent experience with this company. The stylists do such a great job fitting your products to your style. The initial survey is really personalized and unlike beauty subscriptions they adhere completely to giving you ONLY things you want and none of what you do not. I’ve been a subscriber for over 2 years and though the first couple months were so-so with their picks for me, after I had reviewed my boxes and added input they got better and better and excellent! The customer service is wonderful and everyone is so personable, reply to emails with friendly notes and the brand is very active on social media. I have never had a bad experience with anyone at this company and can’t say enough nice things about them! Anyone else a subscriber? What has your experience been like?
Wantable also hosts a photo Friday contest. Snap a photo of your latest collection, (or something in it) and post to the stream and/or Instagram. Winners get their next box free! I won some time last month (for the second time!) with a photo from my January Collection and received my February collection for free! I also won, for a 3rd time with a photo of my April collection. Another free box! Woot!!!
Beginning March of 2016 Wantable sent out an email that they have added small bags (clutches, wallets) as an option in their accessories collection. Of course, just as you can with all other options they have in their collection; you can chose to opt in or out of this specific product in your preferences. I immediately went in and selected ‘love’ in this new category and received a wristlet/wallet in my March box.
My September Collection:
This months’ collection includes the perfect pieces to liven up your Fall wardrobe. My collection is all silver this month and contains a matching necklace and earrings with semi precious large drop stones in a light rose, an ultra soft infinity scarf, an open front bracelet and a bonus pair of earrings; which I selected as a ‘want’ via ‘the stream’. (Thanks Kiley!)
The above photo shows all 5 of the pieces that I received in my August collection, based on my preferences.
For those of you who are curious what I chose as my preferences I will include them below:
Loves: Sunglasses, Rings, Necklaces, Bracelets, Earrings, Silver tone, Multi tone, Boho, Scarves, Clutches/Wallets
Likes: Gold tone, classic, Mix’n match,Rock ‘n Roll, Watches
Dislikes: Hair accessories, Glam
You can change your preferences as often as you like to tweak what you receive; or say, if you only want scarves in the cooler months, start accumulating too much of a certain item…and so on. You can also requests specific styles and types of accessories and if they have it they make it happen! (now easier with Wantable Stream where you can request an exact item with one simple click) I really enjoy this subscription!
The Brenna Earrings are a classic statement type earring with large teardrop stones in a light pink/rose, in a silver setting. My collection also included:
The Monica necklace; which matches the earrings perfectly, with the same semi-precious, pink drop pendant, set in silver, on a long silver chain. The chain itself is very long and adjustable with a not so basic style, for some added detail. While I’m not really a match-y person who will likely wear this as a set, per say; I do really like each piece to wear on its own. The necklace will be a nice touch worn with a basic, solid color dress or tunic and the earrings a nice touch when wearing my hair ‘half up’.
(a better idea on the length)
The Aria Scarf is an infinity (loop) style scarf, long enough to wrap twice (as shown above) in an ultra soft tee-shirt material with a multi black/ivory pattern. I like these infinity style scarves b/c they are so simple to style…for lazy ‘accessorizors’ like myself. I also really like the casual and never itchy tee-shirt like fabric.
The Molly earrings are a small-ish triangular hoop style earring. I saw these on the feed and really wanted them, so I put in a request. I left one pair open to show how they are worn. This is the type of earring I will wear quite often: A bit more of a statement then a stud earring but less so than most hoop or dangly styles. A real ‘no nonsense’ piece, with a bit of ‘edge’ which is perfect for me.
I had to zoom in a bit much to show these off..but at least you get the idea. (worn with the triangular studs from August’s collection.)
The Marlowe bracelet features and open front circle and a hook closure that attaches to one side of the circle, making it easy to put on and take off. I’ve been wearing the cuff bracelet I received in my August box almost daily, and I’m certain I will get a lot of wear out of this one too. It’s a great every day piece to add an easy touch of style to your look.
…and here is how it looks on your wrist
I really loved this collection. I got a couple of pieces I will wear all of the time, a nice new scarf to add to my enormous collection…and to kick off the fall season, as well as a couple dressier pieces. I love that my stylist threw in a 5th item this month!
