Now that I’ve tried LeTote for 6 weeks, I think I can honestly review it. LeTote is basically Netflix for clothes. For $50 a month, you get as many boxes as you want–as soon as you send back your current box, they mail out a new one. My week usually goes like this:
Monday – receive new LeTote box in the mail
Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday – wear LeTote items
Thursday night – put LeTote items in the bag, schedule a USPS pick-up
Friday – A few hours after USPS picks up my LeTote package and scans the bar code, I get an email with my new LeTote box contents. I have a day to finalize my box before it is shipped. Usually I just take what they pick out, but sometimes I swap.
Twice my box didn’t arrive until Wednesday, and I’m not sure why. Once was because of Easter, probably, and the second time may have been because my post office didn’t scan the item right away. Either way, I’ve still been able to enjoy a box a week for the past 6 weeks.
Normally these types of posts would include pics of ME in the outfits I got, but there is really nothing that makes me feel more awkward than posing for pictures. So, I will show you the items from the website.
Week 1: Necklace, ring, shirt, dress, leggings.
I didn’t wear the ring (too bulky for my hands) but I loved that necklace. I liked the shirt okay…it was fun to wear but I probably wouldn’t have bought it. It was very lightweight and flowy, but also wrinkled easily. I loved the dress. I never wore the leggings because I have my own pair just like it and mine fit a little better.
Week 2: Shirt, shirt, pencil skirt, necklace, jacket.
I liked the necklace, but I didn’t think it matched the items they sent so I never wore it. I loved the second shirt. The first one was okay. The skirt I never wore because it was spring break and I never dressed up. The jacket was cute too.
Week 3: Dress, dress, shirt, necklace, bracelet.
I did not like the first dress at all. It needed something under it, as it was very low in front (like to my belly button almost). So it either was just plain huge on me or I was supposed to wear it as a jumper. I never wore it. The second dress was cute but it was a weird type of polyester that I didn’t love. I wore it with leggings. I really liked the shirt. It was a thin pinstripe and a very nice fabric. I wore the necklace and bracelet too, but I can’t remember with what.
Week 4: Leggings, dress, dress, bracelet, shirt.
The leggings were fine, but I never wore them because I have my own that fit better. I need to remember to swap items when they want to send me black leggings/pants. The first dress was okay but nothing special. The second dress was a nice color, but it was sweater material, which I didn’t love. I still wore them both, but there weren’t things I’d buy. The bracelet was cute and I honestly have no memory of that shirt at all, so maybe I never wore it.
Week 5: Cardigan, necklace, scarf, skirt, dress, shirt (I got an extra item because the week before a button was missing on one of my items).
I loved that cardigan. You can’t tell in the picture, but you could snap it different ways, like draped across the front (bottom left to top right shoulder, repeat on other side, off to the sides like a v-neck, etc. So cool. I never wore the scarf (weird fabric). I wore the skirt and the shirt together. The shirt was heavy but a soft fabric. It had a cool back…it was long and had like a split in it. I loved that dress. I would’ve purchased the dress and the cardigan but they were both expensive.
Week 6: Dress, skirt, cardigan, necklace, necklace
This was the first tote that I swapped out items before they shipped it. The dress was cute, but a little big on me. The skirt and cardigan were really cute and looked great together. The cardigan is another item I would purchase if I weren’t so cheap. I liked the second necklace a lot. The first I wore, but didn’t adore.
I really love LeTote. Having 2-3 new outfits a week for $50 a month seems pretty economical to me. I have many items in my closet that I keep for variety even though I don’t love them. Due to LeTote, I can really downsize my closet and still have variety. Also, you send the items back unwashed, so it’s a bit less laundry each week. You do need some basics, as most items aren’t full outfits. I’ve worn my leggings and skinny black pants quite a few times with items. However, since I’ve picked items according to taste, most things fit right into my wardrobe. I haven’t purchased any items, and I don’t plan to. The items are much higher quality than I normally wear, and thus more expensive. Renting them is just perfect. You can opt to have items resent if you really like them.
