Happy Labor Day!
I hope that you are enjoying a lovely 3 day weekend and not writing a thesis. (Don’t worry I’m not. Heyyyyyy procrastination!)
I’ve spent this lovely weekend: 1.) At my local beer pub that I love. Duh. 2)Catching brunch with a friend from out of state 3.) Hanging out with my in-laws 4.) Reviewing products. I had like 5 boxes show up at once which terrified Mr. Danger. (He them immediately lost interest and wandered off to brew beer so, NBD.)
I’ve decided Wantable’s Accessories Box is my new favorite subscription box. My September Accessories Box arrived today and they knocked it out of the park for me again.
If you’re new to Wanable, I think they are great for the
lazy busy woman, who doesn’t have time to shop or keep up with new trends. You take a quiz and then accessories show up at your door. It doesn’t get any easier than that. Subscriptions are $36 a month, but so far mine have been well worth the amount.
Check out my review and let me know if Wantable fits into your beer budget.
Disclosure: I don’t get paid to do any of these reviews. These products are bought with my sad grad school funds and opinions are my own!
Wantable sent me items only from my “Love” list, and again their choices were spot on for me. I also like their styling tips they gave on how to wear each item, because sometimes I need help. Don’t judge.
My favorite piece out of the whole box is the Keira Necklace. I’ve really been in a subtle necklace mood lately, and this delicate leaf pendant is beautiful. I know this will entering my daily rotation for work and weekends because it’s so versatile.
I also adored the Kendra Sunglasses. This is ridiculous, but I am horrible at buying sunglasses. I am super picky and become extremely cranky and indecisive until I grab a pair and angrily stomp out of the store. (This is how I shop most of the time, TBH.) Thankfully Wantable had me covered this month. These sunglasses are completely my style, and I love the gold flower detail, it’s feminine and fun without being too over the top.
I only currently own one watch that I like. (A good friend gifted it to me, it’s a Kate Spade knock off she got from Charming Charlie and I always get complimented on it. That’s a budget win in my book!) So I’m glad Wantable is helping me build up my collection. The band on this is thinner than I usually like, but the rose gold face and design will be great for making me appear professional at work. (I need all the help I can get.)
The earrings were the one part of this box I was a little skeptical on. First, I was confused which part was the front. (I already mentioned I’m easily confused, so you were warned.)
After I read the style tip, I understood you were supposed to put the larger ball behind your ear, which I was initially concerned about because it droops. However, I got use to the look and thought it was kinda glamorous and fun. (I may have pretended I was Audrey Hepburn for awhile.) I never would have picked out earrings like this on my own, but that’s part of the fun of having a box like Wantable.
Wantable has a 2-0 track record with me right now. I am the pickiest person in the world, so I’m very impressed that they’ve been able to send me two boxes that I’ve loved and can routinely use each piece. When I say they are my favorite box right now, that is a legit compliment.
Looking forward to October!
Questions of the Day:
-Do you have a Wantable Box? What did you get?
-Do you have any great knock off pieces that you get compliments on all the time?
-What are you doing for Labor Day?
Enjoy the rest of your long weekend and grab a delicious beer for me!

darn now I really want a Wantable box. I don’t know if I can commit the $36, though. why does that sound like so much? love the pieces you got! thanks for sharing
I don’t get to shop much, for me it’s worth it. The $40 on accessories can help dress up some of my work clothes that have been in rotation for awhile, so that also helps. And to be honest, I think Wantable has wayyyy better taste than me, so it’s nice to pretend I’m fashionable! 🙂
you make some excellent points. maybe i’ll look into more seriously when i’ve canceled that second gym membership i haven’t used in 2 years…
Haha, yeah with all my subscriptions I’ve definitely been doing workouts at home and running- no more gym. But for now it’s working!
I’ve been eyeing Wantable for a while now, but have yet to make the splurge. It looks like you’ve gotten some really awesome pieces! I love the leaf necklace.
I’ve only gotten two boxes from them, but so far I’ve been really impressed! (And I’m pretty picky!) I think taking the quiz really helps eliminate things I know I won’t like.
