When it comes to fashion, trends change so fast that it can be hard to keep up. And with budgets being tighter and paychecks stretched thinner, it can be difficult to stay on top of the latest clothes and accessories. So imagine that for one flat monthly fee you could have a current, rotating wardrobe that could take you from day to night, work to drinks, and weekdays to weekends. That's where Le Tote comes in! My wardrobe was in need of some massive updating, so when Le Tote contacted me about trying their fashion subscription service, saying yes was a no-brainer. Is your closet in need of a revamp? Then read on for the inside scoop on Le Tote and to nab an exclusive coupon code for money off your first box!

HOW IT WORKS

Le Tote is a monthly fashion subscription box that lets you try the latest styles from the comfort of your own home. For $59.00 a month, you'll get as many "totes" as you can send and receive, each filled with three articles of clothing and two accessories that will help you build your wardrobe or supplement what you already own. Once you sign up, you can let Le Tote know what sort of things you love by adding items to your virtual closet. You can also edit your style preferences to let them know what you don't want, too.

Like surprises? Let the Le Tote style team put together your totes based on your personal preferences! Want a little more control? Review each of your totes prior to shipping and swap pieces in and out of your closet to ensure looks you'll love. Love the clothes and accessories in your tote? Keep them for a discounted price. With brands like Calvin Klein, Vince Camuto, and French Connection, you'll be sure to find some amazing pieces for a steal!

CONS

  • All clothes are pre-worn. This wasn't a problem for me, but it is worth noting for those thinking they'll be getting never used clothing and accessories.
  • Sizes are limited. There is not as much choice for plus-size women. And there are no choices for women above a size XXL.
  • When creating your tote, there is no guarantee that a specific piece will be available.
  • If you choose to be surprised, you may receive clothing that isn't season appropriate. I received a long sleeved shirt and a scarf in the middle of summer, for example.
  • If you want to cancel your subscription, you have to call Le Tote directly instead of being able to cancel online. Some users have reported delays and difficulties in canceling their subscriptions.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Hands down, I am absolutely loving my Le Tote subscription! Most of the pieces were bang on perfect for my personal style. The one piece that I was a little worried about, the Ava Printed Shift Dress, ended up being my most worn (and most complimented) item. Everything fit my lifestyle perfectly, and I was able to supplement with clothes already in my closet. And now that I have realized that I can have unlimited totes each month, August is sure to be packed with even more amazing clothes and accessories than July. My birthday is coming up in less than a month, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Le Tote matches me with the perfect dress to celebrate in!

    1. It really is a cool concept and well worth the price! And it's great for people looking to build their wardrobe or who want to try a curated selection of the latest fashions.

      Thank you so much! I wouldn't normally wear a dress like that as it isn't really my style, but everyone seems to love it. Perhaps I need to rethink things! xx

  2. Also love the first dress you're wearing, it looks great on you. I've been hearing about Le Tote for awhile, but wasn't sure what was going on with it.
    I think the concept is cool, but am leery about wearing used clothing/accessories.

    1. Honestly, you can't tell that the clothes and accessories are pre-used. They take fantastic care of their items and it is much better quality than anything you'd come across in a thrift store. All the items are like new essentially. Everything is cleaned and sanitized, and if anything happens to slip through quality control, Le Tote is quick to rectify things. Hopefully that makes you feel a little more confident if you're interested in trying out a subscription! xx

  3. I enjoyed your review of LeTote which have both positives and a few cons but its a great clothing resource! I have tried LeTote and right it just wasn't the right fit for me esp with my gradual weight loss!!

    1. I'm sorry that your experience with Le Tote wasn't top notch. Honestly, I'd think that Le Tote would be the perfect service for those loosing weight as you'd have access to different sizes through your journey without having to purchase new clothes. I'm loosing weight now, and Le Tote has been fantastic about getting me into the right size as long as I keep updating my measurements in my profile. Maybe once you're down to your goal weight you can treat yourself to a new subscription! xx
