You know that saying, “variety is the spice of life?” Well, if you’re indecisive or tire of things quickly, subscription boxes are the best way to get a little variety into your everyday routine. I first heard of Le Tote over a year ago but never took the plunge to try it so I was pretty excited when one of my friends referred me to try it. First box for free? I’ll take it! In case you’ve been wondering what these monthly clothing boxes are like, I thought it was only fitting that I share my experience with you guys. Now, let’s get into the Le Tote review!
First, let’s talk specifics. LeTote is a monthly subscription box for clothes to keep your wardrobe exciting and fresh. For $49/month, you can wear the clothes for as long as you like and then return them OR have the option of purchasing the items at a discount. Each box contains five items which include clothing (tops, pants, dresses, jackets) and accessories (jewelry, handbags, scarves). Mine included 2 tops, 1 dress, and 2 pieces of jewelry. You can let the stylists completely surprise you, or fill out the style survey and make a wish list of items from the site.
Here’s a peek of what came inside my first box:
OCTAVIA RUFFLE SLEEVE BLOUSE
This navy blue ruffle top was my favorite item from the box. I had a size XS but as you can see, it was still pretty loose and flowy. You know I’m all about some ruffles and I feel that this top is super versatile. I paired it with my striped skinny jeans but I think it would look really cute tucked into a pencil skirt for work.
OCTAVIA EMBROIDERED SHELL TOP
The next piece was this cream & white top. It was made of a felt-like material and had some pretty gold embroidery. I styled it with a pencil skirt because this top seemed to be fitting for an office environment, more conservative than trendy.
TERA DAYS POLKA DOT DRESS
The fourth item in the box was this brown polka dot midi dress. I am into the midi trend right now, however, I felt like there was a lot of extra fabric in the skirt and it made me feel a little frumpy. The color palette wasn’t my favorite and overall it just didn’t seem very flattering.
If you like to constantly try new outfits and discover new brands, Le Tote would be great to try. Since I mostly wear scrubs to work, I wasn’t really looking for professional attire and that’s what my box was more geared to. I also felt that the items didn’t really fit my style personality- they felt a little older than my age and did not seem on-trend. Personally, I don’t plan on keeping the subscription going but it was still fun to give it a try. Have any of y’all tried Le Tote? I’d love to hear about your experience and thanks so much for reading!
