Le Tote Subscription Box Review #2
Le Tote is a month-to-month clothing rental subscription. When you sign up, you browse their catalog of clothing and accessories and create your “closet,” from which they select items to send to you. You keep the clothing to wear as long as you like, and you can also send back your box for a new selection of items as frequently as you like. If you love something enough to want to purchase it, you can simply hold onto it when you send the rest of that box back. Also, if you purchase your whole tote, you get one month free!
FYI – the items in my Le Tote boxes are selected for me based off of my preferences and style profile, so your boxes may look completely different!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

DKNYC Floral Crew Neck Top – Retail: $80, Le Tote Price: $62
I really love this top! The floral pattern is just on the front, but it’s a different material (polyester, I believe) and the rest is a sweater knit. It feels high quality and I think it’s pretty versatile. I’ll get a lot of wear out of it.
MATTY M Variegated Stripe Maxi Dress – Retail: $68, Le Tote Price: $54
I liked this dress in photos more than in person – I love the flattering waist detail, but it’s so hard to find maxis long enough for me since I’m 6’ tall. I probably would have preferred a size up too, but even that wouldn’t fix the length issue, I don’t think.
YUMI Jersey Pixel Dress – Retail: $93, Le Tote Price: $74
I think I need to just expect to size up for any dresses from Le Tote. I like this dress (again, I love the waist detail!) and the print, but I probably needed a size up and it was also too short for my liking.
JACK Crinkle Vegan Leather Jacket – Retail: $60, Le Tote Price: $46
This jacket was pretty, but it just didn’t have the structure I like from my jackets. The leather felt (and smelled!) great, though.
NOIR LUXE Cream Mini Briefcase Bag – Retail: $48, Le Tote Price: $38
This purse is really cute, and it also has a shoulder strap I forgot to photograph. It’s cream, and the leather felt really nice and quality, too.
CAMILLA Color Buttons Statement Necklace – Retail: $46, Le Tote Price: $34
What an interesting statement necklace! I like how chunky the chain is, and I thought the fact that there were some flat circles as well as some round, bauble-like circle pieces as well was cool.
The Verdict: I’m having fun with Le Tote! In October I got 2 boxes throughout the month. My very favorite part is that I can keep the items as long as I like and wear them before deciding if I want to buy them or send them back. Sometimes it takes feeling how a piece wears before realizing that it won’t actually work for you, or that it’s itchy, or something like that. I also like that there’s no pressure of when to get it returned in the mail. Evaluating the value is a little tricky because I think the value of renting clothes and accessories is pretty subjective and different for everyone. I can see this being a great service for someone who uses a “capsule wardrobe” or someone who doesn’t like to wear the same thing twice, or even women in the process of losing weight!
(FYI – some readers mentioned on my previous Le Tote review that their clothing had a funny smell when they received it. Mine didn’t last time, and they didn’t this time, either! I just wanted to make note of that, too.)
