Thinking Inside the Box: Le Tote Round 2

I am kind of falling in love with this subscription service. Every time I get a Le Tote box, I am so excited to open it, even though I already know what’s in it. I am excited to try everything on and wear the different pieces, even though some of them don’t fit and I haven’t ultimately purchased any of the pieces I’ve tried. I am spending money, ending up with essentially nothing, and still having an absolute blast. How does that happen? I was originally only going to use the service for a month, but I’ve talked myself into a second “just to give myself more to review”. Which is only about 65% of the truth, the other part is me simply wanting to try out more things.

le2I think my second tote was definitely a bit more “me” than the first. Not 100% my style, but a little more style adjacent.  le7 le1 le3Clothing-wise, I had two wrap dresses and a vest. The pink wrap dress was too clingy, and it wasn’t something I’d ever feel comfortable wearing. The beige vest was pretty, and it looked pretty good on, but the coloring washed me out and brought out the less than flattering red tones in my skin, so much so that I decided to pass on wearing it out. The green and black wrap dress looked pretty great on, and my coworkers really liked it. I considered purchasing it, but the fabric was already a bit faded. I could tell it was something that would get worse with each subsequent washing, so I passed.  le4The jewelry was so much fun, I wore both pieces multiple times, and I considered buying them both. This is going to sound a bit weird, but I knew I wouldn’t have purchased them if I had just seen them in the store, and since I am trying to carefully build my new wardrobe around only “love” pieces, I felt like I needed to let them go. le5 le6 le8I apologize for the horrible picture, but evidently I somehow lost or erased all of them except for this lovely grainy image before you. I’ll try to do better next time 🙂
