Wantable Accessories Collection Review April 2016

Wantable Accessories is part of the Wantable family of subscriptions that include Intimates and Makeup.  The profile system Wantable uses allows you to choose the sort of styles and colors you like and what sizes you need. The great part is that if you receive something you don't like or is too big, etc, you can return it with zero hassle! I've been getting the Accessories box in order to up my Boho style game for a music festival in June. Plus, it's fun!

Not only that but you can change your profile any time you want. So, since I'm really a more Classic jewelry kind of girl, I'll switch all my Boho focused answers back to my true loves (silver, sparkles!). At least I now have a really great supply for my festival, though.

The Cost: $40 for the first month, $36/month thereafter

What You Get: Every box will have four boutique accessories completely tailored to your tastes.  A stylist will choose items for your box based on your answers.

Rory Ring in Silver- This is so perfect! I was really hoping for some turquoise (this is surely hematite but you know what I mean) and I have no rings with this pretty shade of blue yet. Yay! It has a stretchy band which means I can put it on any finger but I admit, it does make it feel less durable. I think that rings can be hard to size when you're not picking it out yourself and I'm totally okay with it.
Value: $16
Estella Earrings in Silver- When I first saw these, I was a little like "whoa!" because they're... not something I would normally consider for myself. Once I put them on, though, I changed my mind. They're fun! It's like fringe... Only metal. Ha! I didn't have any issues with the fishhooks bothering my ears either, which was a relief.
Value: $18
Brecken Necklace in Silver- I'm still on the fence about this one. It's sort of ropey and... odd. Before I make a final decision, I need to try it on with some of the outfits I have planned to wear at the festival. It might work like a paperweight to my floaty dresses, it's pretty heavy. That might be a good thing, too. I'm not big on showing off my undies to people I don't know. :D
Value: $19
Surprise Gold Triangle Earrings- These are not on my invoice but I think it's because last month I wrote in my Notes that I would like a pair of earrings. I had received two bracelets instead of one bracelet and one earring that month. I *totally* didn't mind because I loved both the bracelets but I do need some earrings so I requested some this time around. Lucky me, my stylist came through for me! I actually really like these. I wasn't really expecting to but they look so good on. They're almost dainty but the shape and chip of stone give it a little edge that I like. Plus they're gold and right now gold seems to be "in" and I don't have much of it. Hooray for expanding my collection!
Value: probably around $18

VERDICT: I'm not huge on buying accessories for myself but I've really been trying to add to my outfits each day to give them a little more pizzazz. The Wantable profile system works perfectly for me so I find that this is an excellent way to get accessories, especially ones I would never choose for myself. Plus, the fact that I can just return whatever I don't like means it's a pretty worry free experience. If I hate something, I don't have to pay for it. I just return it. If you're really picky about what you will or won't wear or if you have nickel allergies, you're not going to want to get this. But if you're on for a little adventurous jewelry journey, this has been a lot of fun for me.

If you would like to sign up for Wantable, you can do that here. They have several subscriptions: Accessories, Makeup and Intimates. Those three you pay a flat fee for monthly and you keep everything you get. They also have two Edits. Edits are where you pay a styling fee and then you also pay to keep whichever items you like from what you received that month. Those subscriptions are Fitness and Style. So don't sign up for those accidentally!

What did you get in your box this month? I'm always curious because they tend to be so different!
