So you have heard me talk about this new clothing subscription service, Le Tote, here & here… but today I am laying it all out on the line. I'm a huge fan.

In my personal life I am going through some major changes (blah blah blah). I veered off of my path to Ph.D.-dom, just finished a 100+ page thesis, am looking for a teaching job, planning a wedding, & trying to save up for the new life that I want to start with my soon-to-be-husband.

So as I find myself at the beginning of 2014 in crazy new situations, shopping has taken a bit of a back burner… but that doesn't mean that I don't want to still look FAB.U.LOUS (girl please). Enter Le Tote - my dream closet!
For $49 a month, 3 clothing items + 2 jewelry pieces show up on your door step (a $200+ value!). Items that have been hand-selected for you by Le Tote stylists - you can help them out by "hearting" & adding items to you dream closet on the Le Tote website. If you fall in love with a piece, keep it (with your account being charged a flat rate depending on the type of item). Within your month you can keep your items as long as your want or send your items back to receive new ones as many times as the post man will oblige (shipping is always free). And best part, the Le Tote team handles all your dirty laundry. So your fabulous hands don't have to even be bothered!

Just wanting to add some special icing to your outfits? Le Tote has that service too. The "Jewelry Box" subscription delivers 3 accessories/box at $19 each month. From statements to dainty whispers of jewels, there is everything you could dream of waiting in your online closet. 
But seriously - it is all worth it just to hang out with this dress for a month. Perfectly cut, in a color that I can't get enough with & made of a gorgeous crepe material that moves in all the right ways… don't just take my word for it, try it out!
So now that your mouth is salivating for a subscription of your own, it's time for me to tell you that Le Tote is Hooking. You. Up! Two lucky readers will win a subscription of your own - a "boutique box" & a "clothing box" - check out the Le Tote website & let me know what piece you are oogling over the most!

(Winners picked at random by Rafflecopter. 1st place will get their top pick of boxes, 2nd place will get the remaining option. Open only to residents of the contiguous United States)


  1. That dress is gorgeous!! I've looked into Le Tote before but didn't get it because I was worried about fit - I have one of those body types where trying things on is 100% necessary.
