My Second Le Tote!

It's been a while since I've written about Le Tote.  My first Le Tote experience is here.  I had a pretty good box the first time.  It didn't wow me and I wasn't going to get another box, but I forgot to cancel my subscription.  And boy!  Am I glad I forgot!!

If you've never heard of Le Tote, it is a clothing subscription box.  For $49, you are sent five pieces (3 clothing, 2 accessories) to rent.  If you want to purchase any of them, you can at a discount.

Le Tote 1

Le Tote 2

I. Madeline Plaid Sparkle Skirt, $54

I loved this skirt straight out of the box.  It fit and it was comfortable, but it (like all pencil skirts) accentuated my bootay.  I could've worked with it and maybe worn a longer cardigan to minimize my derrière.  However, I like adding pieces to my closet that I don't have to think about it.  I want whatever I add to my closet to be effortless, and this is not that.

Le Tote 3

I. Madeline Pleather Henley Top, $44

This was another item that I liked straight out of the box, but as you can see in the pictures the fabric is pretty thin.  That was a turn off (especially at the price) and the color blocking stops at a weird area for my hips.  It was very comfortable and I could see myself wearing this around the house throughout the year.  The price is too steep for an 'around the house' item.

Le Tote 4

House of Harlow 1960 Sugarloaf Stud Earrings, $24

Aren't these cute?  I really liked them.  They fit my style and I should have kept them.  I thought $24 was kind of pricey for stud earrings.  Now that I've thought about it some more, I wear stud earrings more than anything else.  I have four holes in each of my ears and rarely switch out my studs.  Why didn't I keep these?  Oh, well.  Since then, I've found them on Amazon for $26.

Le Tote 5

Noir Luxe Chloe Antique Necklace, $28

As soon as I took this out of the box, I knew I had to keep it.  It's a gorgeous color.  The bar shaped crystals don't look very blue in the pictures, but in person they are a pretty grey-blue shade.  I've worn this necklace with everything.  Even thought it's kind of sparkley, this is my grab-and-go necklace when I don't know what jewelry to wear.

Le Tote 6

Karen Zambos Couture Ellie Top, $64

Confession: I didn't try this on.  I just couldn't.  If it came to me this wrinkled, I imagined it would look much the same at the end of a work day.  In addition, I don't like to iron every week and I have a feeling this one would need some ironing.

I am very, very glad that I forgot to cancel my subscription before this box was shipped to me.  That necklace was definitely worth it.
