This is my second Wantable Accessories Box, and I was lucky enough to get this for $6.00 without any shipping issues like my first box! Unfortunately, there was a delay in Wantable sending my box out, but I’ll explain in details below why that was the case. Like last month, I received four items, and they are all watches and bracelets again. Did I like my box? Enough to re-subscribe for a third time? Was it worth only paying $6.00? Read on!
July Selection Quiz and Its Delay
I was billed for my box on July 20, but I didn’t receive any notification on the box shipping out. I contacted them on July 25, and they responded that they couldn’t complete my order because they didn’t have items that matched my preferences. I wanted glam and boho watches and bracelets without any lobster or toggle clasps, and I wrote I preferred blues, greens, and neutral colours. Well, that wasn’t good enough, so I changed “classic” from a dislike to a like. That helped them complete my order, and they shipped it out on July 28. I received the package on August 4. Huzzah for no weird shipping issues!
Wantable Box and Its Content
Like last month’s box, the postal workers scribbled my name on the outer part, so I didn’t snap a photo of the actual “package”. I snapped a shot of it with the box opened. The greeting made sense this time. Then I took a shot of the box inside the box with the quote on the other side of the greeting tag.
This is the information sheet that was under the greeting tag. They also listed the accessories in my box along with its descriptions, style tips, and prices.
Unlike last time, the accessories came all in a box, where it was secured between two styrofoam pads. I feel like this was a better packaging deal than the individual snap pouches, and this gave better protection. From left to right, I received the following:
Larin Bracelet in Silver: “This simple little chain features a centre rhinestone piece and magnetic clasp. Style Tip: Wear this alone or stack with a watch or more bracelets.” Retail: $12.00 ~ Wantable: $6.32
Beth Watch: “The Beth watch is a gorgeous classic watch with a silver face and stainless steel back. Please note this watch comes with an assorted coloured band.” Retail: $27.00 ~ Wantable: $14.22
Interlocking Delicate Bracelet in Small from Sole Society: “Lightweight interlocking bracelet with a looped design in metal. Ideal for layering. Style tip: Layer with bangles and your favourite watch.” Retail: $19.95 ~ Wantable: $10.51
Holly Bracelet: “The Holly bracelet features an adjustable silver band bound with a silver stone. Style tip: Pair with a grey and white striped casual chic top.” Retail: $17 ~ Wantable: $8.95
The Holly bracelet is simple and easy to put on. I found the silver stone to be quite bulky for its size, but then this happened . . .
I took it off and the stone fell off! That really surprised me. I guess the glue wore off or something. I mean, it turns out I actually like the Holly bracelet better without the stone, but still! I couldn’t help but feel like this was a poorly made bracelet. ~_~;
Then we have the Larin bracelet and the interlocking one. I had no problem with the magnetic clasp on the Larin bracelet. However, I’ve yet to figure out how to undo the interlocking one if that’s even possible. If it’s meant to be a slip-on bracelet, it’s not going to fit over my hand!
I wore the Larin bracelet by itself, and then I added the “broken” Holly bracelet together. Without the stone, the two go very well together, I thought! Providing that I do not react to the metal, I’d definitely wear these on a daily basis :)
Lastly, we have the Beth watch. I’m absolutely loving the face! So much better than the crazy Livie watch from last month, and it’s slightly smaller, so not as bulky and big. Unfortunately I am not liking the strap. It feels like some weird foam material, and like the Becky watch from last month, it will get dirty easily :( Also a bit disappointed that the strap wasn’t blue or green, but the pink is a nice shade.
All in all, I am glad I only paid $6.00! The Holly bracelet is “broken”, the interlocking bracelet is unwearable, and the lack of glam accessories left me feeling quite unhappy with this box. Sure, I can return them and get a refund, but it’s too much of a hassle to get my butt to the post office to ship them back. I do like the watch and the Larin and Holly bracelet, but I’ve decided that I am not doing Wantable again for a long time. I’m sticking to Helene Jewelry, at least for the next three months. Sorry, Wantable, but $36 isn’t worth it for the future boxes.
