Internet Finds Life

For those of you who haven’t heard of Le Tote, you probably don’t listen to the same podcasts as I do because it is advertised all. of. the. time.

Le Tote is a service similar to Stitch Fix in that it is a clothing and accessory subscription. The primary difference is that the clothes are borrowed instead of purchased. I was slightly grossed out by this concept initially because I am a little bit of a germophobe, but also thought it could be interesting from a sustainability standpoint (although shipping might cancel out that benefit). Also, if I don’t have a problem buying clothes second hand, I shouldn’t feel any different about using Le Tote.

I selected the most inexpensive subscription which includes 3 clothing items and 2 accessories per month. The items are yours for the month and you can even buy the items at a discounted rate if you can’t part with one of them.

I just received my first box and here is what it included:


My initial thoughts on Le Tote:

  • I kind of very compulsively signed up for this service. It was so compulsive that I even forgot to use the discount codes that they always give on the podcasts. Anyway, I probably should have spent more time looking at what clothes they had available through this service before signing up. There are a few things I think are cute but generally speaking my style is not very compatible with Le Tote.
  • One benefit of Le Tote over Stitch Fix is you get to choose what comes to you every month.
  • While I love jewelry, I am not sure if having a bracelet to wear for a month is a big selling point for me. Next time I am going to go for necklaces.
  • I wonder if this service provides financial savings for people over the long run? I doubt it.
  • The app is pretty fun and kind of feels like you are scrolling through your sister’s closet and scoping out what you want to borrow next.
  • The clothing items I received seemed clean, didn’t have any stains or major signs of wear and tear. 2 of the 3 items seemed very small.
  • The only items in my box I wore more than once were the jean jacket and this bracelet. I don’t think I will miss either when I ship them back. It was nice to have something new in the mix for a few weeks even though they are both pretty staple and not very exciting.

I am going to wait for my second box to make my final decision on Le Tote. I am still pretty undecided but am thinking this is going to be a short term adventure. Happy Monday amigos!




Professional lover of stories, the harmonica, goats and burritos. Constantly daydreaming about living in the country, ice cream and decorating. Inspired by beautiful writing, the PNW, Beyonce and kindness. I'm guaranteed to have hearts in my eyes when the lighting is just right and am totally in love with my beau named Beau, who I found in the middle of fall, my favorite season. I sleep in my makeup, grew up on grunge music, embrace imperfection and am pretty excited about the gift of waking up every morning with choice to kick butt and love every minute of this wild ride.
