WANTABLE OCTOBER 2014 UNBOXING: KEEP IT OR KICK IT?

Published October 25, 2014 by thebeholdingeye

Happy Friday, my lovelies…and what a way to cap off the week than with the delivery of my first Wantable Intimates collection for October. I confess…I had tried Wantable makeup for several months and was pretty pleased with it; however, once I discovered Boxycharm (which is about half the price of Wantable makeup collections), I decided to cancel the Wantable makeup and stick with Boxycharm.

Wantable offers 4 different boxes from which to choose: Makeup, Accessories, Intimates, and Fitness.

After taking an inventory of my (lack of) sleep and lounge wear, I decided to give Wantable Intimates a try. I’d seen some really cute items on various unboxings through YouTube and blogs and figured I’d see what the good people at Wantable would put together for me.

I didn’t know what to expect when the mail carrier placed this box into my hands this morning:

Okay, looks just like the makeup box. Coffee in one hand, knife in the other, I tackle the box.

O. M. G. Get those 2 inserts out of my way, because I’m seeing PINK and PURPLE peeking out at me from underneath, my two all-time favorite colors. Oh, this is going to be good, I can tell already.

Too much cuteness first thing in the morning. WAY too much cuteness. And softness.

The first item I choose to fondle is a very soft, very lightweight, very pretty and understated beige camisole top trimmed in coordinating beige lace. I actually have an almost identical top in another color (if you guessed pink, give yourself a gold star!), which I love so I know I’ll love this one, too.
(RETAIL VALUE: $18.00)

Now on to the purple pajamas. Be still, my palpitating heart. I haven’t been this excited since…well, I don’t know when. These are some of THE most UH-adorable pajamas I’ve ever seen. I suck at photographing clothes and I’m sure these pictures do not do this perfectly awesome pajama set justice…It’s not only purple, it’s polka dot (a pattern I love), as light and soft as a feather, and trimmed out on the bottoms with a little bow and on the top with a layer of soft netting along the bottom hem. Okay, glad I set my coffee down otherwise I’m sure I would have spilled it in my excitement. These are FANTABULOUS.
(RETAIL VALUE: $39.99)

Next up is another amazing garment. This nightgown is, again, buttery soft and PINK…a beautiful shade of medium pink, not too pale and not reminiscent of Pepto Bismol. It’s just right. Yes, I am the Goldilocks of Pink, it has to be just right. There is an amazing ivory lace overlay on the top and thin little adjustable shoulder straps. It’s pretty much just pink perfection. Seriously. Like, I wish it were bedtime now so I could crawl into this baby, get back into bed, and just enjoy the soft comfort of this lightweight wonder.
(RETAIL VALUE: $32.00)

TOTAL RETAIL VALUE: $80.00

I’m in awe. Seriously, jaw-dropping, clapping-my-hands-together awe. The contents of this box were even so much better than I had imagined. These are quite literally the types of garments I would have picked out for myself, fabric, style, and color. I’d call this box an absolute home run. I bow to your greatness, Wantable, for somehow intuiting precisely what I would love and putting it into this box. I’ll be fondling its contents up until bedtime tonight. Because I’m big on textures…okay, and a little weird.

Between this box and my much beloved French Box, October has been amazing for subscription boxes at Casa Beholding Eye. Both far surpassed my expectations and are definitely plenty of bang for that proverbial buck.

So, will Wantable Intimates (unlike its sister box, Wantable Makeup) make the cut to remain on the subscription list for the upcoming year?

STATUS: KEEPING IT!!!

(To be more precise, this currently is probably #1 on my list of Boxes That I MUST Have…this subscription would have to be pried from my greedy yet well-manicured fingers.)

If you’d like to check out Wantable for yourself, they do offer 2 ways to subscribe. You can choose to make a 1-time box purchase ($40) or subscribe ($36). There is a certain degree of customization allowed for all boxes across the board. I have to say, based on what I received, someone at Wantable deserves their own gold star for putting together the perfect box for me.
