I’ve been trying really hard to be more aware of what I purchase and bring into our home. I try to buy staples, things that I’ll wear a lot. For this, I’ve shared my love for Stitch Fix. They’re PERFECT when I am looking for staple pieces that I’ll wear again and again. However, this summer…..I found myself in a bit of a fashion pickle. By the end of August, I’ll have attended four conferences. At two of these conferences, I’m speaking. At the other two, I’ll be meeting with brands that I would LOVE to work with.
These conferences are a bit dressier than my daily mom life or teaching life. So, what to do? Am I supposed to buy clothes I’ll rarely wear after attending? What about the fact that I’d prefer to wear something new each time? That gets expensive, right?
Enter Le Tote. Le Tote is a fashion delivery service with no strings attached….and it’s totally helped me get through conference season! How does it work? Le Tote recommends 5 items (3 garments and 2 accessories). You can SEE the items before they ship. So, looking for cocktail dresses? Looking for skirts? You can actually see the items in your shipment and switch them for other items. For these conferences? I requested dresses like this floral scuba dress, which was perfect for a cocktail hour meeting.Why was this so perfect? Le Tote is primarily a clothing borrowing service. You keep clothes as long as you like, wear them, and return them. You aren’t BUYING them. So for me? For items I only needed to wear once or twice? This was IDEAL! And if I fell in love with something, I had the option of buying it and keeping it (not gonna lie, I’m seriously considering keeping this dress). Want to try Le Tote for yourself? Until July 25th, use code 7ALTFT16 to get a free tote…..and trust me, it’s worth checking out!
