So I’ve been hearing a lot about Stitch Fix and Le Tote. Both are similar in that they are fee-based subscriptions where you can get fun new apparel & accessories shipped to your door to try on at home. You keep (and purchase) what you like, and send back the rest.
My first Stitch Fix doesn’t ship until mid May, but I already received my first Le Tote box, so wanted to review that now! (I’ll plan to compare the two for a future blog post!)
What I like about Le Tote is that it reminds me of Netflix for apparel/jewelry. You “heart” items in your closet that you like. The more you “heart,” the more personalized your tote will be. You also get unlimited totes each month. (But you do have to send everything back to get a new tote, otherwise, you will be charged for the items you keep.) There is free 2-day shipping both ways, so you could conceivably get a few boxes worth of stuff in a month to use! Otherwise, you can keep everything as long as you want—2 days, 2 weeks, 2 months, whatever–but you will still be charged the monthly fee ($49.95) until you send back the items in the prepaid envelope they provide OR buy the items in your tote. And the best part? They take care of the laundry!
So here is what I got in my first shipment-
Only one item in the tote (the yellow top) was something I “hearted.” Overall, I liked everything except the hi-low sweater (just not my style…I’m not down that that trend.) Everything fit well too (you fill out a size profile when you start.)
The pieces are a nice quality and Le Tote offers brands like Lord & Taylor, Nordstrom, Piperlime and Anthropologie.
So first up was this bright yellow top, which I loved! I paired it with the bangle and earrings. Just wish it wasn’t so sheer (you can see my tank top through it.)
And here’s everything in one shot-
So there you have it! It was fun to get a few new “trendy” pieces to make more outfits with and try on in the comfort of my own home. In the end, I decided to send everything back and see what else I get in my next tote since I “hearted” more items since then. We will see what comes in the next tote!
