I was so excited waiting for my Wantable box and couldn’t wait for it to arrive on my door step with lots of fabulous Spring accessories. As soon as I opened the box I was really impressed with how the box was packaged and presented, with a band on top with a lovely compliment saying “you look lovely today” along with the best advice a girl could have on the reverse side, “Words to live by: Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin.That, or a kick ass red lipstick – Gwyneth Paltrow”.
There was also a label on the lid, “packed especially for: Caira-Jayne Prewett”, immediately I felt this box was packed and tailored personally for me, as told on the website. When I ordered my box I filled in a really detailed survey when I ordered of my likes, dislikes and about my own style so the products would be tailored perfectly to me and this was also in the box so I could see what I had selected in case I forgot. These are what I selected:
The March boxes featured Jordan Liberty, a working professional makeup artist, photographer, and YouTube personality-turned-entrepreneur. I had never heard of him before, but after researching him on the internet I found he was a really well known person in the fashion industry and also owns his own product line. I received a pair of Jordan sunglasses (retails for $16) that I completely fell in love with and haven’t stopped wearing in the sunshine! They suit my face shape and I love the style of the tortoise-shell wayfarer shape adorned with gold tips, which adds a modern twist on the classic cat-eye along with oversized frame means these are right on trend for this spring.
I also received a gorgeous Arianna scarf (retails for $22). A snood style scarf in a lovely pistachio green colour that would make any simple Spring outfit look incredible due to the floral lace detail, however it’s not my type of scarf. I have tons of scarfs and wear them in every type of weather but this snood was very short compared to my others. I love scarfs that hang lower than my top’s neckline and this one seemed to be too high, I felt like I was suffocating. I did decide to wear it out one day and had tons of compliments on it from my friends so I will wear it now and then but just not as much as I had hoped I would wear it.
And the surprises kept coming… Next I found the Kira Necklace (retails for $21). The necklace came in a cute velvet black wallet to keep it safe and clean which I love so I can take it with me on holiday and not worry about it being damaged. This is a stunning necklace that will definitely be my number one accessory this Spring. A trio of crystals encased in gold toned wire. It reminds me of a dream catcher and I have had so many people ask me where it’s from along with compliments. It’s a stunning necklace and as advised, on the information paper about the box, I teamed it with a flyaway sweater and gold studs and looked fabulous!
Last but not least, my last surprise was the chunky gold Fionna bracelet (retails for $20). It’s a gorgeous chunky bangle with an intricate design of a brushed gold texture and spiral effect with the chunky band on top. I love wearing this bangle! Against my skin tone in the sunshine it looks like a really expensive piece and have had many people ask me where it’s from. I can’t wait until the summer so I can team it with summer dresses in the evening!
Overall, I was really impressed with my Wantable box and loved reviewing all the items. I will be subscribing to future boxes as I love the unique pieces you receive that I have never seen on the high street, and the products all retail more than the amount you pay for the box, so it’s definitely great value and worth it to revamp your look each month with on style trends.
