I survived Part I of Wedding Weekend Octoberextravanza 2014. It was a lot of fun! I was a spastic bridesmaid and got to catch up with some old college friends. No one tripped, all brides were married, and I got queso. I consider it a success!
Anyways, I’m back this week with some new posts before I’ll be heading out of town for Wedding Weekend Part II!
Although I’ve been writing posts, I haven’t had much time for interacting on Facebook, Twitter, etc. So just a general shout out and thanks to everyone who has been reading this blog, and welcome to any new followers! Despite everything going on my life, I genuinely love writing these posts and managing this blog, and I’m happy to share it with you!
So that being said, let’s get to the important stuff. I got my October Wantable Accessories Box! As usual, it was $36, and shipped quickly, I got it before Oct. 1!
Check out what I got this month:
This month Wantable chose bold pieces for the accessory box, and their info card also shared that they partnered with designer Emily Maynard* for the box.
*I just found out this is a former Bachelorette. Hm.
Unfortunately, this was my first Wantable Box that wasn’t an immediate hit. I blame Emily Maynard. However, given how picky I am, I knew this would happen sooner or later, and overall I really did like this box.
So let’s talk about this Ashley ring. I am actually looking for a statement ring for holiday parties this season, so I was very open when I saw this in my box. Unfortunately, one of the rhinestones had fallen out, and also I couldn’t wear it without feeling like I had on brass knuckles.
Look, I know some ladies can rock this style, but I personally do not like my fingers being enclosed in metal. Like, how will I hold a delicious craft beer with this thing on? This is a serious issue.
Anyway, I logged into my Wantable account and discovered that since the retail value of this ring exceeded $36 bucks I paid for the box, I could return it for a partial refund! I was very excited, because I didn’t want to send the rest of the items back. (Friends of mine who read this-you should be excited too, because I was going to pawn this ring off on you if things didn’t work out.)
I printed out a packing slip and I’ll be sending it out tomorrow. I’ll update this blog when the returns process is done, and let you guys know if it went smoothly. So far, I’m impressed!
I got some silver in my box this month, which is fine with me because I need to branch out a bit. I like both pairs of these earrings. The Mona studs are subtle, but interesting, I think they could add a bit of flair to a work outfit.
The Margot earrings are a bit out of my comfort zone, but I think that’s a good thing, in this case! When I wear them, they kind of twirl in the air, they don’t remain in the shape featured in the picture. However, I think this makes a pretty, unique effect and I like that I could dress up an outfit with these.
Obviously I liked the Jeanne bracelet, because I love me a simply gold bangle. This is basically going to be a go-to bracelet for me. I even wore it as a bridesmaid this past weekend.
Overall, this Wantable box had some great pieces I really liked. I didn’t fall in love with any of them, as I have in the past, but I still felt the value was there for me. I especially appreciate that it seems I’ll be able to return the ring very easily. Always a fan of simple and efficient!
