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.)
Next up was the hi-low sweater. Not a fan of this trend personally but it did fit well and was rather comfy…
Last was this geometric print tunic along with the necklace…super comfy and a nice outfit for the office!
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!

I LOVE my first Le Tote bag, and have decided to keep both a top and a necklace…I just can’t part with them, but I’m dying to get another bag. Hopefully I can get better at letting pieces go so that I can swap all 5 items each time!
Oh fun! Have you worn them on the blog yet?
I love the yellow top! What a pretty color! I’ve been very intrigued by these monthly clothing subscriptions. Right now I’ve been doing Julep, but haven’t been getting it every month. I’ll have to look into doing one of these clothing ones too!
Thanks Maria! I adored the color too! If it wasn’t so sheer I probably would have kept it.
I do Fabletics for fitness apparel and now Le Tote for clothes (I used to do Birchbox for beauty but cancelled and opted for these!) So fun!
That yellow top is gorgeous!
And as cute as it is on you I’m not really digging the hi low either.
AMEN! Yeah the hi-low top actually doesn’t look half bad on, but it’s just the whole concept of it that I’m not digging…very much like a tail or cape to me.
They are all cute, especially the yellow top. Perfect for spring! But yeah, high-low is a no go for me. I would’ve sent it all back, too.
I definitely would have kept the yellow top if it wasn’t so sheer. Hi-low is a no-go for me…just never understood that!

Does the $49.95 go towards any items you purchase or do you have to pay the full price of the item on top of the $49.95?
No you have to pay additional on top of the 49.95 to purchase anything. But the items are discounted quite a bit. And if you keep everything, you get a month free so that’s nice!
I have never heard of either of these companies before. Thanks for the info and I am totally loving that high/low sweater. Super cute!
Thanks Samantha- glad to help and appreciate you reading along!
I am loving all those tops especially the color-blocked sweater. So fun and unique. Hope you kept it. =)
I end up not keeping the sweater (I don’t think I can pull off that hi-low look), but I have my eye on another sweater that I want to purchase…hope it comes in my next box or I’ll just buy it soon!
That yellow top is such a great color – even though it’s a little on the sheer side, I love how it looks on you! :)
Thanks Brynn! Yeah I definitely would have kept it if it wasn’t so sheer…
