Hopefully you know by now that one of the main purposes of this blog is to make it easier for us to get dressed in the morning. (Or afternoon, if that’s when you actually get out of pajamas. Or late, late afternoon. No judgement here. ;P)
Some of you wish someone else would shop for you and pick out your clothes, and while there are several services out there that do that for you and send you clothes to try and buy, etc., I want to introduce you to one that I got to try over the past month called Le Tote. There are a bunch of things that stand out about how Le Tote works that I absolutely LOVE and want to tell you about!
How it Works – The Basics
Basically, when you subscribe to Le Tote, you select items on their site that you love, and then you’ll start receiving totes at your doorstep with 3 garments and 2 accessories catered to your personal style. Wear them as much as you like for as long as you like, and if you want to purchase them then keep them and your account will be charged later.
Simple, right? Okay, so what do I looove so much about this service? Oh, so many things!
What I Love
Unlimited totes. What? YES. Whereas other personal shopping companies send you only one box per month, with Le Tote you subscribe for $49/mo and get unlimited totes. You’ve just gotta send your current tote back and they’ll ship you a new one right away. I received 3 in one month!
Wear the items, even if you won’t purchase them. Other companies are purely shopping services with the purpose of you ultimately buying items they’ve sent, but Le Tote is different. They want you to wear all of the items in the box, basically renting the clothes! If you have special occasions coming up you can have new stuff to wear without purchasing new garments. So good! And if you want to buy anything, you get them at a discount from the retail price as a member.
Keep the tote as long as you want. If I’m honest, I don’t like most shopping services because you have to send the tote back within a certain time frame. That doesn’t make shopping easier–it makes it stressful! With Le Tote, you can keep the tote as long as you want, which is sooooooo nice. Just send it back whenever you’re ready. (Basically whenever you want to try a new tote.)
Free two-way, 2-day shipping. It’s super fast, and free both ways! Free shipping is my heart language.
You get to rate the items in each tote so that your personal Le Tote stylist becomes more keen to your style over time. I was curious to see if the totes would actually improve. I was skeptical, but they really did improve.
My first tote alllllright. I chose the wrong sizes, so things didn’t fit me super well, but in terms of the style I liked what was sent. For some reason I really didn’t like my second tote and sent it back almost immediately, even though it was mostly items I chose myself. Win some, lose some–but it cost me nothing extra to do it–not even shipping! But by the third tote, I liked 2 of the 5 items so much that I purchased them!
I was also impressed with how easy it is to return. They send you a bag with paid postage, so all I had to do was put the clothes in the bag and leave it on my doorstep for the mailman to pick up. Very, VERY easy.
With free, pre-paid return shipping, encouragement to wear items with no obligation to buy, and no timeline for when you have to return things, Le Tote really does make working your wardrobe easier! If you don’t have time to go out and shop, if you live far away from stores, or if you like wearing new items often but hesitate to buy lots of new clothes (and rightly so), I think Le Tote is a fantastic solution.
