I'm always looking for fun ways to change up my style and add variety to my wardrobe, but I'm not the most creative when it comes to my clothes. Plus, I feel like I don't have enough time to go to a million stores and find the perfect piece to complete my outfits.
I had heard about clothing boxes that get delivered right to your door so I thought I'd do some research. After browsing my options, Le Tote is a name that kept popping up. It's an online fashion subscription service that sends you brand-name clothing that you can rent and wear as much as you like, for as long as you like.
I had some concerns about trying an online clothing service like this in case the clothes don't fit well or don't suit me. But after reading a ton of reviews of people who love the service, I figured it couldn't hurt to give it a try.
I went on the website and filled out Le Tote's member profile, including my size, brand preferences, and rental plan. I decided I needed clothes that were perfect for both a day at the office or a night out.
When choosing my items, I chose a flowy cut, tunic, and a collared shirt - I was going for a boho style. For pants, I chose skinny jeans, wide leg, and leggings. I also chose a gorgeous trench coat. Le Tote even took into account the weather in my region.
For a fixed price, you get tons of items from brands that you know and love. And whenever you're done with the items you just mail them back in the prepaid envelope. I went for the Clothing-only option since I don't wear a lot of jewelry. It included four clothing items per month plus free shipping.
A few days later, the box was sitting on my doorstep when I got home from work. I was excited to try on my first round of clothes. I got a pair of Calvin Klein jeans, a French Connection tiered bell sleeved top, an Anne Klein dress, and a Hayes light blue and white pinstripe trench coat. Everything looked exactly as good as it did on the site, and the trench was a lot cuter in person, and they really delivered on the promise to fit well across all brands.
I wore the jeans a couple of times and paired them with a few different tops. I decided to keep the pinstriped trench because I knew it'd be a good staple piece for my wardrobe. I even got 50% off the retail price! The dress was a hit at my work function, all the compliments gave me a huge confidence boost. I even convinced a couple of coworkers to sign up!
I was relieved to find out that once I was done with the clothes, all I had to do was seal them in the pre-paid return bag and send them back - Le Tote does all the laundering for you so I didn't even have to bother with washing them! Le Tote really makes things as convenient as possible.
One thing that I've noticed is that my tote gets better each time. The more feedback I give about the clothes, the more I feel that Le Tote really understands my personal style. I have the option to pause the service anytime, but I don't foresee that happening anytime soon.
