By now most of us have tried at least one clothing subscription box, whether it is Stitch Fix, Le Tote, Trunk Club, Dia & Co…the list goes on. I’ve tried a handful myself, but never stuck with one as long as I’ve been using Le Tote.

What is Le Tote?
Le Tote is a clothing subscription where you get a set amount of clothing and/or accessories per month. Keep what you want, send back what you don’t. The plan I have lets me choose 5 clothing items and 3 accessories for $79/month.
You’ve probably seen pieces from my recent Le Tote sprinkled throughout the blog recently (see here, here, here (those culottes!) and here). And if you’ve been following this blog for awhile, I wrote a Le Tote review this past summer. I’ve kept it going until now for some, and I’m writing another love affair review because I think this subscription deserves it.
So here are so basic, and not so basic reasons why I love Le Tote.
Why Le Tote?
- I like being able to take fashion risks without having to feel like I’m committing to them 100%. Case in point: This floral moto jacket. When I saw it on the Le Tote Website, I figured why not. I’ll try it and send it back if I don’t like it. Turns out I love it and I should trust my fashion gut.
- There are no surprises. I’m kind of a control freak and I like to know what I’m in for Your Le Tote is styled for you, but you get 48 hours to swap out clothing and accessories that you want to try. I almost always swap everything.
- It is all inclusive, both in size and style. Whether you work in a conservative office or you’re a stay at home mom, there is something for you. They even have activewear to workwear to vacation style.
- They have great brands that you’ve heard about before. Think Nike, French Connection, Calvin Klein, Eliza J, and Free People.
Le Tote: a few cons:
- I’m rarely motivated to keep anything. The business model makes me want to swap in and out clothing as if I have a virtual closet. I guess that’s not really a con.
- It is a bit pricey, especially because the Le Tote price isn’t factored into your purchase like in some other clothing subscriptions. But you can get your first tote free by signing up through this link.
- They don’t have petites yet.
- The handbag selection isn’t anything fancy.
- I wish they had shoes, but I’m not sure how that would work logistically.

Thank you so much for linking up last week! I had an overwhelming amount of comments and love on last week’s look. Your support makes me so happy to be a part of this blogging community. Thank you!
My favorite look from last week is Nicole from What Nicole Wore!
Nicole’s affordable derby outfit stole my heart. I mean – it is pink and burgundy so if that doesn’t do it for ya, I don’t know what does! I really admire Nicole’s commitment to affordable style – her stunning dress and fascinator are both under $50, and her cute sandals are under $30!
Although it isn’t an outfit, I REALLY enjoyed Jodie’s side by side (literally) comparison of two long wearing lipsticks! Definitely check it out, especially if you are thinking of purchasing Lipsense.
