Fashion Review: My Le Tote Experience + 25% Off Coupon Code


I am so excited to do a review for Le Tote!

I have been seeing a lot of great ads all over social media and I was curious.

What is Le Tote? In a nutshell, it is a monthly fashion rental service with optional styling assistance.


Let me explain. First, you head over to the Le Tote site and create an account. Then you answer some basic questions about yourself as it relates to fashion (sizing, style preferences, color preferences etc.).


You will be asked to select examples of styles that represent your tastes or things you would like to try. It is really easy. No stress involved.

Then you will select items you like from the Le Tote site and based on all this info your box is styled for you. If you do not like the options, no problem. You can change out a single piece with an option of your choosing or you can do this switch-a-roo with all the items in your tote.


Each tote includes 3 clothing items and 2 accessories. Above is a screen shot of my first styled tote.


The only item I kept from the Le Tote styling option was the Philosophy Floral Scuba Top. The rest I changed out for items I personally selected from the Le Tote site. Part of me wanted to change out everything because let’s face it…I am a fashion control freak. However, I really wanted to tip toe outside of my fashion comfort zone with this experience so I let Le Tote’s stylist fill one spot. 🙂


Once you have selected your items, you are ready to checkout. You enter your credit card info and a promo code (if you have one). I just so happen to have an exclusive Le Tote coupon code for Living Chic on the Cheap readers! Yay! Just use code CHIC25 for 25% off the first month’s subscription.


A month subscription runs $59 ($69 for maternity). Your total will come to $44.25 for your first month subscription (regular tote/ non-maternity) after the promo code is applied. So you are saving $17.75. Shipping is FREE both ways. So basically with this promo code it will cost you just over $11 a week to try this out for your first month!


You can keep your items as long as you like. Once you’re done enjoying your tote, simply return it to receive another. You can exchange multiple totes within your monthly time frame. If you enjoy your membership, do nothing at the end of your month and your membership will automatically continue for as long as you choose to remain a member.


Le Tote is a month-to-month subscription which begins at sign up. However, let’s say you will be out of town or you have a budget issue, there is an option to pause. You would need to manually go into your account and request a pause. In order for a hold to go into effect, you must NOT have a tote in your possession.


To receive your next tote, return your WHOLE TOTE by placing the items in the return poly-bag with your return shipping label already attached. Any items kept are marked as purchased to you. Your card will be charged for any purchases from a tote when your tote arrives back to Le Tote.


You also have an option to purchase items for 20-50 percent off retail. You can purchase the entire tote for even greater savings. Le Tote partners with more than 150 brands including French Connection, Vince Camuto, BCBGeneration, Free People, Splendid, BB Dakota, House of Harlow 1960, Rebecca Minkoff and more.

You can cancel anytime via phone. There are no long term contracts or cancellation fees.

Here is what a Le Tote Membership includes:

Priority 2-3 day shipping both ways

Laundering of all items

Cleaning of all accessories

Member pricing

Optional Insurance

Le Tote also offers an awesome referral program. Once you refer a friend and they begin their paid subscription you receive $15 off your month of membership, and your friend gets $25 off her first month!


So here are my thoughts…

First, I will give you my opinion on the items. As you can see from all the pictures above, the items arrived packaged quite nicely. I was pleased with the quality of ALL the items.

Remember that one item I let Le Tote style for me…the Philosophy Floral Scuba Top? When I pulled it out of the box I hated it. OK, maybe “hate” is too strong, but I was not a fan. Since this was a review after all, I felt I owed it to Le Tote and my readers to try it. You know what…. I wore that top more than any other of the pieces over the course of the month. I also received more compliments on this piece than the other two. (This is making me question my fashion identity.) It was nice getting out of my fashion box and trying something different.

Since it is a bit of a trendy piece and I am not sure how I would still feel about it in a couple months, I will be sending it back. Still it was fun to try.


Okay, I admit it. I am a sucker for a great LBD. I loved the black dress. My husband and I both agreed that one is a keeper. It is something that is made well, classic and I will get lots of wear out of so it seemed like a good fashion investment.


I did wear the gray top with the lace bottom three or four times. I really liked it, but I didn’t love it ….especially not for the price to keep it, so I will be returning it as well.

I didn’t keep the earrings, but I did keep the necklace.

Is it worth the cost?

Most the time I discuss my reviews with friends and family. I like to hear their thoughts, opinions and perspectives. When I explained the service and the pricing I did get a mixed bag of opinions; however, I was surprised that most of them (even my “frugal” friends) didn’t mind the price.

I think you have to look at your clothing budget and lifestyle and see if and how Le Tote fits into both.

When I think about Le Tote instantly my mother-in-law comes to mind. She and my Step Father-in-law run a busy medical practice. They are never home. They are always on the go. This is a great option for her. She doesn’t have to worry about dry cleaning. She doesn’t have to fit a shopping trip in to find new things every time she has to go out of town to a conference or to a function. She also would love the optional styling.

I also think about my friends who are business women and/or working moms. (Those who work outside the home. I work from home most days and only the cat secretly judges my fashion choices.) How great would it be not having to squeeze in getting to the mall into an already busy schedule? Or getting to the dry cleaners before they close? (…or having to “hand wash/line dry?”)

For me personally, there are a few times a year that I go out of town for conferences and conventions and I ALWAYS have to purchase new clothing because I know I will be photographed and those photos will be all over social media. Le Tote would be perfect for those months. That is why I love the pause option.


You can find out more by visiting Le Tote. Just pop over and look around and check out their selection. If you decide you would like to try Le Tote, then please don’t forget to use that fabulous promo code: CHIC25 for 25% off your first month’s subscription. If you are a member of Le Tote I would love to hear your feedback in the comments below.

I received a complimentary one month’s subscription to Le Tote in exchange for writing an honest review. My opinions and experience are my own.  Promotional code is valid for a limited time. The information contained in regards to Le Tote’s pricing and services are accurate to the best of my knowledge at the time of posting.
