The latest Wantable Accessories Box is ready for fall: crisp weather, sweaters, and layering! The new collection features classic pieces with an edge, lots of metallics and geometric shapes, and multi-toned pieces, all with a feminine flair.
I thought it was very interesting that the selections Wantable sent me this month include three pairs of earrings, even though earrings are in my ‘like’ section. But you know, I have bracelets, watches, and rings all in the ‘dislike’ section, so I guess I have limited categories from which the stylists can pull. I am going to do some major surgery on my preference list for next month. Regardless, every piece in my September box is a winner and I am extremely happy with my selections.
The Carly Headband (retails for $14) is two beaded strands of alternating pearls and beads on an elastic band. The band is very comfortable, and the silver beads and pearls show up nicely on my brown hair. Often I find elastic headbands sort of collapse on me and slide off, but this one stays in place and doesn’t hurt my head. Color me happy!
The Gracie Earrings (retails for $15) have a dangling trio of shimmery silver hoops. These are so much prettier in person, photos just don’t do them justice. They are very delicate but attention-grabbing at the same time.
The Faye Earrings (retails for $22) are small but thick silver hoops with sparkling rhinestones. These are very expensive looking, the rhinestones are quite convincing! This is a perfect pair of classic hoops that will go with anything – definite anchor earrings to strengthen a jewelry assortment.
June Stud Earrings (retails for $41) are truly beautiful studs from Cate & Chloe. Even the box is to die for! I am seeing versions of these knotted mesh studs everywhere, and this silver pair is elegant and intriguing. They are a little heavy for my second piercing, but Lobe Wonder (a miracle product that takes the pressure off ear lobes so heavier earrings hang perfectly) takes care of that. I love these paired with the Faye Earrings, or with the Gracie Earrings for contrast.
Even though I didn’t have a wide assortment of type of jewelry, the pieces I received are top-notch and in styles I love. Plus, Wantable is still an amazing value – this $36 subscription box has a retail value of $92. If you haven’t signed up yet, now is the time for Wantable to pump up your fall accessory wardrobe. - Lisa
